Lydia Askani: Circle and Surface—Lunar Relics Scrutiny

The artistic research project deals with the appropriation of artifacts and forgeries of cultural property. She draws attention to their instrumentalization within geopolitical power struggles and, in this context, critically and humorously questions the role of institutions and museums in relation to the attribution of meaning to objects and their historical contextualization.

Workshop · 10.11.2023 – 12.11.2023

The Condition for Experience, or: ars activa

The workshop “Condition for Experience” will address some of today’s most pressing questions concerning the discourse on artistic action. Presentations and discussions will include approaches from art-historical discourses and political theory from the 1960s, informed by contemporary debates on (artistic) production, the field of action, the ability to experience work and subject, as well as the concepts of ‘acting’, ‘action,’ and ‘performativity.’
