Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 6:30pm, free: The Kitchen L.A.B. with artist and author Keren Cytter, professor of philosophy Lydia Goehr, and composer and visual artist Marina Rosenfeld.
Each season since 2012, artists and writers across disciplines have gathered as part of The Kitchen L.A.B. (language, art, bodies), a year-long series devoted to unpacking artistic and cultural terms as their meaning shifts--and may become more resonant or ambiguous--over time. This year, the series will revolve around "representation," particularly as the term at once conjures critical strategies in art from previous decades; the necessity of diverse publics; and, against the backdrop of precarious governing institutions, recent impulses toward non-representative social structures on both ends of the political spectrum.
Thursday-Saturday, April 25-27, 2019, 3:00-11:00pm, Lebensformen / Life Forms, at Haus Der Kultur der Welt, Berlin
Which strategies are needed to deal with our technical present? Between the climatic shifts of the earth, political changes, and globally distributed economic exchanges, these planetary scale dynamics are both too vast and too complex to put into graspable terms. In artistic and discursive formats, Life Forms asks for means of collective agency and the values shaping them.
In an open-floor auditorium, historian of science Sophia Roosth engages in research conversations with anthropologist Elizabeth A. Povinelli, literary scholar Melody Jue, author Hu Fang and others to explore different approaches to the notion “lifeforms.” The setting for these conversations is structured by choreographers Xavier Le Roy and Scarlet Yu, whose work, based on elements of their performance Temporary Title, 2015 translates questions of individual and social transformation into the space. Sound contribution by Marina Rosenfeld. Three themed days ask: How Long Is an Echo? When Can You Call It Technology? Who Do We Care For?
