Lampedusa, The Day After

 

Linke

 

Seminar

 

mittwochs, nach Ankündigung

9 - 13 Uhr

 

The Day After is a collaborative artistic project that collects commercial, private, and documentary image material produced by journalists, migrants, coastguards, social workers, and other actors operating on the Mediterranean island Lampedusa. 

By preserving, archiving, and displaying found footage as well as making interviews with its producers on video, a multi-perspective view is assembled. The project becomes manifest in different formats, for example screening, installation, exhibition or publication. It renders visible the motives and means of production as well as the distribution of images questioning the prevailing imaging policies that form our view on the events taking place in this transfer space. In this semester we will concentrate on producing a final publication that incorporates all collected and produced images and translates these materials of various sources into a print format.

The Anthropocene Project

 

Linke

 

Projekt

 

mittwochs, nach Ankündigung

 

Der vom Chemiker und Nobelpreisträger Paul J. Crutzen um die Jahrtausendwende geprägte Begriff eines neuen geologischen Erdzeitalters „Anthropozän“, zählt mittlerweile zu den bahnbrechenden wissenschaftlichen Konzepten unserer Gegenwart.

Unsere Vorstellung von der Natur ist überholt. Der Mensch formt die Natur. Das ist der Kern der Anthropozän-These, die einen Paradigmenwechsel nicht nur in den Naturwissenschaften ankündigt, sondern darüber hinaus in Kultur, Politik und Alltag nach neuen Wegen sucht. In einem zweijährigen Projekt lotet das Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) die vielfältigen Implikationen dieser Hypothese aus. Ein Team von Kuratoren, Architekten und Filmemachern, (u.a. Anselm Franke, Territorial Agency/John Palmesino) arbeiten hierzu an einer Serie von Filmen, Texten und Photoessays.

 

Das Seminar ist projektbezogen, Studenten werden direkt im Produktionsprozess "in the field" involviert.

Tito’s Photo-Archive*

 

An interdisciplinary artistic research project

 

Linke / Clegg  

 

Projekt

 

mittwochs, nach Ankündigung

9 - 13 Uhr

 

How to address and evaluate different types of memories in respect to culture, politics and economics? Authors from various disciplines form a growing international work group in collaboration with the Museum of Yugoslavian History engaged with the ‘Tito’s Photo-archive’. The archive consists of 150.000 photographs that were produced by five ‘approved’ photographers that have continuously documented the official life of the public persona of Josip Broz Tito from the 50’s to the 80’s. Therefore, the archive does not only portray a successful statesman, dictator, and enigmatic figure but also contains the invention of the politics of universalism and a geo-political concept that connects Europe with Africa, Asia and South-America. The archive documents official ceremonies and visits all over the world can be seen as a visual history of global modernism; on how nations represent themselves socially - an anthropologic study of politics.

The existence and accessibility to the archive allows us to ask today: What can these images do for us? What do these images do with us? Why is it important to digitalize, process, re-visit, and publish them? What conditions are needed to make them public today? Where, when and most importantly, for whom may the archive become useful? What role does the archived knowledge play for future generations? Since history unfolded in harsh contradiction to the imagined post-Tito era, with the violent demise of SFRJ, the MYH photo archive become ever more valuable. 

A group of students will work directly as researchers on the images of the archive proposing different curatorial selection methods. Ideally the project results will be shown in a show in Belgrade at the beginning 2014 and might result in a publication in collaboration with Jan Wenzel Spector Books.

 

 

Workshops participants : Fabian Bechtle (artist, Berlin/Belgrade), Doreen Mende (curator/theorist, Berlin/London, DAI), Milica Tomic (artist, Belgrade), Estelle Blaschke (historian of photography, Paris/Berlin), Olga Manojlovic-Pintar (historian, Belgrade), Philip Ursprung (art historian, ETH, Zurich)

 

Project partners Museum of Yugoslav History (Neda Knezevic), Goethe-Institut Belgrad (Matthias Müller-Wieferig), ETH Zürich (Philip Ursprung)

NEAPEL, a walk from Naples to Pompeii -Ausstellungsprojekt in den Lichthöfen der HFG

Seminar und Ausstellung

 

dienstags

Raum 101 / Lichthöfe der HFG

 

Last autumn we travelled to Naples, accompanied by architecture students of Prof. Philip Ursprung from ETH Zürich as well as the artist group Stalker (Rome/Naples). The photographic, video and sound material captured during this trip will be the basis for an exhibition in the ‘Lichthöfe’ and the Performance Studio of HFG.

In general we aim to present the multiplicity of perspectives that were generated during the four-day walk by the sixty students and accompanying artists. In collaboration with a curatorial team of students from all other departments at HFG we will construct an intricate visual environment that will utilize existing and purpose built display structures (movable walls, columns, tables, vitrines and an specially constructed display units). Our aim is to present the rich visual material in a divers array of photographs and videos arranged as a quasi replication of the topography of the journey.

In the previous semester much of the images have been collected and a number of student groups have been formed to deal with various aspects of the exhibition. The project is nevertheless open to students who are interested in exhibition design and are willing to engage in this collective undertaking.

The original participants – the Stalker group (Lorenzo Romito, Francesco Careri, Julia Flocca and Matteo Fraterno), Sudlab Naples (Antonio Perna), ETH Zürich (Prof. Philip Ursprung, Berit Seidel and Mechtild Widrich)as well as HfG Armin Linke, Michael Clegg Tobias Wootton and Ines Lechleitner) will take part in the presentations and comment on the project.

 

The opening of the show and related events will take place around June 19-21 and will be preceded by an intensive installation period starting on the weekend of April 15th. Full details will be given in our semester presentation on 17.04.13, 10:00am at the Photography media classroom.
