Sound Performance by Lilli Lake

of limit

In addition to the artist talk as part of the exhibition What Is Steady Anyway? 250 years Kunstakademie Düsseldorf | Class Sabrina Fritsch & Class Franka Hörnschemeyer Lilli Lake will also present the sound performance of limit on 7.2.2024.

of limit explores the sonic crossing of lines in space. Inspired by the quote "Every walking Moment, there are Lines we have to cross" (Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec), the performance explores a sounding, hidden rhythm in everyday walking, in which relationships between striding bodies, steps and the spatial environment are configured. Field recordings create an individual and collective experience, revealing a glimmer of empowerment within a given structure and allowing spaces to collide in time. The contact between body and ground becomes a gesture that explores the solidity of the ground and the properties of space. The sound becomes a catalytic event, emphasizing the passing of the present as an element in everything that has been lived.

Book Launch

Sebastian Riemer

The Philara Collection is pleased to present FRONT PAGE BACK END, a selection of photographs by Sebastian Riemer. This exhibition shows works from his Press Paintings series, which focuses on retouched press photos from 1950s America and references the canon of characters featured in the popular press of that era. These photographs raise questions on the inclusion and exclusion of images in the media, and on the economy of image processing, where similar criteria still apply today.

To the finissage, we are pleased to invite you to the presentation of the book on the work of Sebastian Riemer, published by Spector Books, on 30.09.2023 at 5 pm. The artist will be present.

The event is barrier-free.

Social Fiction

Diskussionsgruppe with Taj Irzhavskaia und Anne Schülke

In a German and English speaking discussion group, Social Fiction invites you to think about the future of living together. Based on texts (Ursula Le Guin, Paul B. Preciado and others) and films (Marrok Sedwick, Hörner/ Antlfinger and others) the discussion group wants to imagine positive social designs for the future.

The discussion group is organized by: Taj Irzhavskaia (*1994, Moscow; they/them) documentary filmmaker. Anne Schülke (*1973, Düsseldorf; she/her) is a media artist, cisgender and a social class changer. In conversations the group would like to speculate with you about living together in the future: Where and how will we gather? How will we make decisions together? What connections will sustain us? What architectures will we inhabit? What kind of art do we want to sur- round ourselves with?

The discussion group will meet 8 times during the year, at different locations in Düsseldorf. Participation in the meetings, tea and water are free of charge. Before the meetings, the organizers will send a PDF with a text excerpt, or a link to a film/video. They would like to make audio recordings during the meetings and would be grateful if you could give them permission to do so in person, on site.

T(r)anzkultur. Encounters of Dance & Transculturality

Summer School organized by the Chair for Transcultural Studies/Institute for Art History Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf

Which processes and dynamics emerge, materialize and become visible in the encounter of dance and transculturality? We will research and discuss this central question in the Summer School T(r)anzkultur. Encounters of Dance and Transculturality from July 25-29, 2023, at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf in cooperation with tanzhaus NRW and the Philara Collection.

We are particularly interested in the diverse networks and contact zones that can be experienced between dance and transculturality. Thus, T(r)anzkultur negotiates transcultural perspectives on dance through methodological and theoretical concepts such as cultural transfer, migration, and gender. Furthermore, dance practices can be powerful tools and initiate resistance and action for change in social and political conflict zones. Dance companies and educational institutions form a microcosm of transculturality and globalization. For they are - in the sense of Homi Bhabha's "third space" - spaces of negotiation, interweaving, and hybrid forms of expression: In the medium of dance, notions of culturally diversified societies emerge.

During the Summer School 2023, we will focus on urban and contemporary dance styles from the Middle East. In recent years, important and groundbreaking dance styles, movements, companies, and research approaches have emerged in the urban scene of these regions that have yet to be received in Europe.

The Summer School T(r)anzkultur will offer a space for theory, history, and practice. International scholars, dancers, choreographers, and experts will contribute with their current works. We would like to invite you to experience, reflect and discuss the encounter with us.

Asphalt Festival: I hear you

Concert installation by Bojan Vuletić (Premiere)

The phrase “Sorry I can’t hear you over the sound of my freedom”, originally used by the nationalist right in the USA, cynically mocks the opinions of others. The phrase reflects a decline in the culture of democratic debate and respectful interaction. Bojan Vuletić’s new work “sorry I can‘t hear you over the sound of my freedom” gives a disarming answer to this. From the demagogic texts of the small and big dictators of this world, elements are acoustically and visually extracted until new poetry emerges from the linguistic brutality. Exclusion becomes openness, inhuman laws are transformed into tender lyricism – swirled through by contemporary music that sparks new artistic dialogues. The expansive concert installation can be experienced through many loudspeakers distributed throughout the hall, so that the audience can freely choose its position in the room.

The new work will be performed by three outstanding soloists of international standing: the Romanian pianist Alina Bercu, who lives in Germany, the New York trumpeter Nate Wooley and the Polish violist Rafal Zalech. Composer Bojan Vuletić is involved in the live performance himself with an unusual typeface-electronics instrument.

 

The artists

US trumpeter Nate Wooley is considered one of the leaders of the American movement to redefine the physical limits of his instrument and has gained international recognition for his idiosyncratic style of trumpet playing. He is considered – not just in New York – to be one of the most sought-after trumpeters in the jazz, improvisation, noise and new music scenes. In 2019, he made his debut as soloist with the New York Philharmonic in the opening series of the season. Wooley has premiered works for trumpet by Christian Wolff, Michael Pisaro, Annea Lockwood, Ash Fure, Wadada Leo Smith, Sarah Hennies and Eva-Maria Houben. He received the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award in 2016, the Instant Award for Improvised Music in 2020, and the Spencer Glendon First Principles Award. In 2022, he was a NYSCA/NYFA Fellow.

Romanian pianist Alina Bercu has performed on many important music stages in Europe, America and Asia, including Carnegie Hall New York, Tonhalle Zurich and Tonhalle Düsseldorf. She has worked with renowned orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic, the Orchestre de chambre Lausanne and the KlassikPhilharmonie Hamburg. Studio and live recordings by Alina Bercu have been included in the Golden Phonotheque of the Romanian Radio. Her debut CD with chamber music works by Schubert and Brahms was awarded the “Golden Label” (Benelux) and “Clé d’or” (France).

Rafal Zalech’s wide-ranging artistic activities move between performance, composition and the development of IoT devices for musicians. As a violist, he has performed at new music festivals on five continents and as a soloist with orchestras such as the Webern Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia and Divertimento. Zalech is a member of the Black Page Orchestra, the duo collective Nimikry and CEO of the smart-instruments startup DigitAize. Between 2010 and 2021, Zalech worked intensively with Klangforum Wien, one of the most recognised ensembles for new music, with whom he played over 100 concerts. In 2022, Zalech received the prestigious Erste Bank Composition Prize for his artistic life’s work.

Bojan Vuletić is a composer, sound artist and guitarist. Musical collaborations connect him with Markus Stockhausen, Nate Wooley, Bojan Z, the Mivos Quartet, the WDR Radio Orchestra and Choir and the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra, among others. He has also written theatre music for over 50 productions and compositions for several contemporary dance pieces. Audio realisations of exhibitions in collaboration with artist Danica Dakić have been featured at documenta 12 Kassel, the Liverpool Biennale and the Venice Biennale, among others. Vuletić’s concert and interdisciplinary compositions have so far been performed in various countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and the USA.

PERFORMANCE by GILI AVISSAR at Philara Collection

Gili Avissar, 2023

Gili Avissar combines painting, sculpture, video, performance and dance in his work. Originally, the artist wanted to study fashion, but found more freedom in art. In 2021, he was featured in the exhibition "Look! Revelations on Art and Fashion" at Marta Herford. His work focuses on textile structures and fantastic creatures that move between people, animals and plants and emphasise transformation processes. He often uses his body as a canvas and produces works that are also costumes for videos and performances. For the Philara and Strike a Pose collection, Gili Avissar will premiere a performance with a wolf costume and other textile entities.

Gili Avissar (*1980 in Haifa, lives and works in Tel Aviv) studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, the Glasgow School of Art and the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Tel Aviv. In recent years, scholarship stays have taken him to Düsseldorf, Leipzig, Paris and Prague, among other places. Avissar's works have been shown internationally in solo exhibitions, including MEWO Kunsthalle, Memmingen, Germany (2018), Kostka Galerie, Prague (2018), Koal Galerie, Berlin (2017), Nahum Gutman Museum, Tel Aviv (2015). He has also been included in group exhibitions and screenings, including at Marta Herford (2021/2022), Artist's Television Access, San Francisco (2018), Mana Contemporary, Chicago (2017), KARST contemporary art venue, Plymouth, Flux Factory, New York (2015), Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (2014), Museum für Bildhauerei Glaskasten Marl (2013) and KIT, Düsseldorf (2012).

 

The event begins at 7 pm and lasts approximately 50 minutes. The event is fully accessible and free of charge.

 

COOPERATION by THOMAS SCHEIBITZ and SUZUSAN

Thomas Scheibitz, Ohne Titel, 2003. © Thomas Scheibitz & Sammlung Philara, Foto: Kai Werner Schmidt.

Thomas Scheibitz' (*1968 in Radeberg, lives and works in Berlin) artistic practice is based on a multi-layered collection of archival material: including art historical reproductions, typography, images from magazines, architectural photographs, cartoons, notes, sketches, conceptual clusters and much more. At the centre of the Berlin-based artist's work is the search for a visual grammar of the present and a new relationship between representationalism and abstraction. For the Philara collection and Strike a Pose, the artist will create a motif for the fashion of Hiroyuki Murase and his label Suzusan.  

Thomas Scheibitz studied at the HfbK Dresden, as a master student of Ralf Kerbach. He has been a professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf since 2018. At the 51st International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (2005), the German pavilion showed works by Thomas Scheibitz together with Tino Sehgal. Important solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at the ICA, London (1999), Kunstmuseum Winterthur (2001), Camden Arts Centre, London (2008), Musée d' Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg (2008), Taxispalais, Innsbruck (2010), Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main (2012), Kunstmuseum Bonn (2018), KINDL-Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Berlin (2018) and Museum Berggruen, Berlin (2019), among others.

SUZUSAN was founded by Hiroyuki Murase in 2008. The label's fashion is based on an ancient Japanese textile finishing technique called shibori, used for manually dyeing fabric by twisting and wringing it. The designer combines this special tradition of his hometown Arimatsu with new materials, such as hand-woven cashmere and alpaca wool as well as transparent fabrics for scarves and his prêt-à-porter collection.

Mohamed Bourouissa: From the Beginning to "Network"

Artist Talk with Ania Kolyszko (Towards Photography) & Julika Bosch

The core of Mohamed Bourouissa's work is the examination of the medium of photography. He takes this as a starting point to develop three-dimensional sculptures or expansive installations that reveal a multi-perspectivity in comparison to the flat image. The Paris-based artist questions the contemporary mechanisms of image generation. In regard to this, he examines the staging and representation of social position that becomes visible in photographs. At the same time, his work negotiates the medial (under)representation of individuals and groups, their habitus and their codes. But although his works have a decidedly political and sociocritical agenda, they do not focus on the depiction of social inequities. Instead, they break through the repetitive image streams of our present by asserting themselves as a strong counterweight. Mohamed Bourouissa's works show self-confident and creative representatives of urban youth culture in gentrified cities as well as remote suburbs.

In the interview for Towards Photography, Mohamed Bourouissa talks about his beginnings at the Sorbonne Université in Paris, his first projects and related research over many years, to current approaches exploring the possibilities of AI technology.

The interview was prepared and realized in cooperation with Towards Photography.

https://towards.photography/mohamed-bourouissa-from-the-beginning-to-network/

 

 

Mohamed Bourouissa was born in Blida, Algeria and lives in Paris. Over the last years his work has been shown worldwide in numerous solo exhibitions, at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Haus der Kunst, Munich among others. Mohamed Bourouissa photographs, sculptures and installations are part of public art collections, such as the LACMA, Los Angeles, the Centre Pompidou, Paris or the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Let’s have a ball!

Shapes&Shades at Philara Collection

The Shapes&Shades collective brings ballroom culture to the Philara Collection. Everybody interested is cordially invited to the mini ball; you’re welcome to watch and join in the celebration! The event is free of charge and accessible. Previous experience or continuous participation is not required.

CAYA IV - Come As You Are Part 4 is part of the Shapes&Shades collective's mini-ball series for the ballroom community and their allies. In a kind of dance and performance competitions, so-called balls, the participants compete against each other in different categories. The participants present their performance on a runway, moderated by a commentator and judged by a, in this case, three-part jury. The performers are accompanied musically by a DJ, who also ensures a lively atmosphere afterwards. Since the 1960s, New York's Black and Latinx LGBTQI+ community has been hosting these prestigious balls, where participants share and compete creatively and performatively - as a distinct and safe space for queer and trans* persons of color to celebrate their identities.

At the end of 2019, Shapes & Shades was founded as a free collective with the goal of jointly developing concepts to strengthen the LGBTQI+ & BIPoC scene in Düsseldorf and to promote the creative potential of the community. The collective consists of six art and culture professionals from Düsseldorf and is primarily dedicated to communicating Ballroom culture to marginalized as well as structurally discriminated people in German-speaking countries.

Posing Workshop (6-7pm) - To warm up, there will be an introductory posing workshop. This will be led by Marie-Zoe Buchholz aka ZOE - a freelance interdisciplinary performance artist, project manager and curator from Düsseldorf, who is a leading figure of Ballroom culture in the German-speaking world.

To participate in the workshop, please register in advance via email to shapesundshades(at)gmail.com. For the mini ball starting at 8 pm no prior registration is necessary.

The participation is free of charge.

Gili Avissar

Artist Talk

Gili Avissar's work combines painting, sculpture, video, performance and dance. For the Lantz'sche Park in Düsseldorf, curated by Friederike Fast and Lea Schleiffenbaum, he recently created a textile work made of hundreds of threads - fantastic creatures, crossings between people, animals and plants. For the opening, he transformed into an elephant expressing possible transformation processes as well as a deep connection with nature. The Philara Collection's current new collection presentation also features a work that demonstrates this interconnectedness: The sculpture Big Bird, which is at the same time a bird costume, was created during a residency in Düsseldorf. In conversation with curators Friederike Fast and Julika Bosch, Gili Avissar provides insights into these as well as other works and presents videos of works from his own archive.

 

Gili Avissar (*1980 in Haifa, lives and works in Tel Aviv) studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, the Glasgow School of Art and the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Tel Aviv. In recent years, scholarship stays have taken him to Düsseldorf, Leipzig, Paris and Prague, among other places. Avissar's works have been shown internationally in solo exhibitions, including MEWO Kunsthalle, Memmingen (2018), Kostka Galerie, Prague (2018), Koal Galerie, Berlin (2017), Nahum Gutman Museum, Tel Aviv (2015). He has also been included in group exhibitions and screenings, including Marta Herford (2021/2022), Artist's Television Access, San Francisco (2018), Mana Contemporary, Chicago (2017), KARST contemporary art venue, Plymouth, Flux Factory, New York (2015), Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (2014), Museum für Bildhauerei Glaskasten Marl (2013), and KIT, Düsseldorf (2012).

Friederike Fast (* 1975 in Bielefeld) currently works as a curator at Museum Marta Herford, where among others in 2021/22 she has conceived the group exhibition “Look! Revelations on Art and Fashion” including several works, a performance and a workshop by Gili Avissar. She has realized countless projects inside and outside Germany and also lectured at Paderborn University.

PRÉSAGE. Performance by Hicham Berrada with music by Thomas Klein

As part of DC Open

As part of the exhibition BREATHING WATER, DRINKING AIR, the Philara Collection presents a performance by artist Hicham Berrada. The PRÉSAGE series brings together aquatic landscapes chemically activated in glass tanks like hermetic little worlds. Worlds made out of minerals immersed in an aqueous solution, with the artist deploying a whole range of components according to the colours and shapes he hopes to bring into existence. The chemical reactions and compositions are filmed and appear above them on a live projection, while an invited musician creates sounds. The music is played live by Düsseldorf-based musician Thomas Klein, who is also known as a solo artist under the name SØLYST and as part of the band KREIDLER. 

 

The performance is an ongoing series by artist Hicham Berrada (*1986 in Casablanca, Morocco Lives and works in Roubaix, France), who is performing himself. It has previously been shown at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, at MO.CO. Panacée, Montpellier, at ICAS, Singapore and at Palazzo Grassi, Venice, among others.

 

The event will take place in the framework of DC Open: www.dc-open.de

The performance starts at 8 pm and lasts approximately 40 minutes. The event is free and wheelchair accessible.

Book a ticket.

Asphalt Festival: Visions of Excess

Contemporary composition by Bojan Vuletić

What happens when people suspend rationality, indulge in a conscious loss of control and instead allow a state of excess? What forces are within us – and do they act creatively or destructively? These questions underlie the new composition by Bojan Vuletić. In his contemporary work for two pianos, trumpet, clarinet, cello and vibraphone, Vuletić deliberately takes the musicians to their limits – and beyond.

Visions of Excess – el sueño de la razon produce monstruos’ is an uncompromising adventure, a game of vabanques with excellent soloists who possess a special virtuosity and masterful musicality. At the same time, they are ready to let go, to trust their impulses and instincts and to experience visions of excess musically. Two outstanding international pianists, Alina Bercu and Asagi Nakata, are at the centre of the performance. This special artistic constellation of opposites is also echoed when symphonic soloists Mariel Roberts and Christoph Schneider encounter the two boundary crossing musicians Matt Moran and Pablo Gīw in the ensemble. Whether Francisco de Goya is right with his sentence “el sueño de la razon produce monstruos” ( transl. “The sleep of reason gives birth to monsters”) will have to be answered after the world premiere of ‘Visions of Excess’ at asphalt 2022.

The Romanian pianist Alina Bercu has performed on many important music stages in Europe, America and Asia, including Carnegie Hall New York, the Tonhalle Zurich and the Tonhalle Düsseldorf. She has worked with renowned orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic, the Orchestre de chambre Lausanne and the KlassikPhilharmonie Hamburg. Studio and live recordings by Alina Bercu have been included in the Golden Phonotheque of the Romanian Radio. Her debut CD with chamber music works by Schubert and Brahms was awarded the ‘Golden Label’ (Benelux) and ‘Cle d’or’ (France).

Born in Japan and based in London, pianist Asagi Nakata has won a number of first international prizes, including the Budapest Liszt Ferenc Competition, Franz Liszt Weimar and Windsor International Piano Competition. An internationally renowned soloist, she regularly performs on concert stages in Europe, Asia and North Africa and performs live on BBC Radio 3 for the ‘In Tune’ series presented by Sean Rafferty.

Trumpeter and performer Pablo Gīw lives in Cologne and his music is particularly concerned with extended techniques, percussion and noise. With his instrument, he creates dense walls of sound and grooves in which he also incorporates voice, spoken word and acoustic means, thus creating completely new levels of sound.

Born in Frankfurt am Main, clarinettist Christoph Schneider has won numerous prizes as a soloist. He has played at the Staatstheater Wiesbaden, the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, the Staatstheater Darmstadt, the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra, among others, and has been 1st solo clarinettist at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein Duisburg for six years.

Matt Moran is a US vibraphonist and percussionist and arranger for Modern Creative. Matt Moran has played with Joe Maneri and in the bands of Paul Flaherty, Reuben Radding, Sufjan Stevens, in the Claudia Quintet with John Hollenbeck and in the band Sideshow, and also as a percussionist with various Balkan folk bands.

American cellist Mariel Roberts has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician across four continents, most notably as a member and co-director of the Wet Ink Ensemble (named “The Best Classical Music Ensemble of 2018” by The New York Times). Her ravenous appetite for collaboration and experimentation as an interpreter, improvisor, and composer have helped create a body of work which bridges avant-garde, contemporary, classical, improvised, and traditional music.

Bojan Vuletić is a composer, sound artist and guitarist. Musical collaborations connect him with Markus Stockhausen, Nate Wooley, Bojan Z, the Mivos Quartet, the WDR Radio Orchestra and Choir and the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra, among others. He has also written theatre music for over 50 productions and compositions for several contemporary dance pieces. Audio realisations of exhibitions in collaboration with artist Danica Dakić have been featured at documenta 12 Kassel, the Liverpool Biennale and the Venice Biennale, among others. Vuletić’s works have been performed in various countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and the USA.

Asphalt Festival: Frontera | Border – A Living Monument

Dance performance by Amanda Piña

The work ‘Frontera | Border – A Living Monument’ by the Mexican-Chilean choreographer Amanda Piña has its roots in an old dance form that was performed by the Spanish during the conquest of Mexico in the 16th century as ‘Danza de conquista’ to reenact the battles of Muslim Moors and Christians in Europe. This old ‘conquest dance’ was taken up in the 1990s by young people from Matamoros on the border between Mexico and the USA. They updated and established it as an alternative form of self-expression in public space in the Mexican border town, which was dominated by drugs and violence. Amanda Piña uses the transformation of this traditional dance form as inspiration for a choreography that weaves together hip-hop culture, colonial narratives, indigenous practices and mysticism. ‘Frontera I Border’ is a living monument that reminds us that a border is not just a line on a map, but also carves itself into bodies. Moreover, the work is a tribute to the strength and resilience of those who are willing to cross borders.

‘Frontera I Border – A Living Monument’ is the fourth part of Amanda Piña’s project ‘Endangered Human Movements’. The dancer and choreographer, who lives in Vienna and Mexico City, deals with the decolonisation of art in her artistic works, focusing on the political and social power of movement. Piña temporarily abolishes established divisions such as modern and traditional, human and animal or nature and culture and is on the lookout for new framework conditions for the development of art.

Amanda Piña is one of the leading choreographers in Europe. Her works have been shown at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain Paris, MUMOK Museum of Modern Art, Tanzquartier Wien, ImpulsTanz Festival, Royal Festival Hall in London, Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City and HAU – Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin, among others. Since 2008 Piña has been running the gallery space nadaLokal in Vienna together with Swiss visual artist Daniel Zimmermann, with whom she also founded ‘nadaproductions’.

Reclaiming Memory between Art, Activism and Court
 
Talk with Gamze Kubaşık, Ülkü Süngün and a representative of NSU WATCH NRW.
Moderation: Aurora Rodonò

 
From 2000 to 2006, the so-called National Socialist Underground (NSU) killed nine people with a migrant backround in various cities: Enver Şimşek, Abdurrahim Özüdoğru, Süleyman Taşköprü, Habil Kılıç, Mehmet Turgut, İsmail Yaşar, Theodoros Boulgarides, Mehmet Kubaşık, Halit Yozgat. In addition, the NSU killed German policewoman Michèle Kiesewetter in 2007 and carried out at least three bomb attacks, two of them in Cologne. Until the NSU became public as a result of a confession video in 2011, the victims' relatives and friends had been in the crosshairs of the investigation. Even the 2018 NSU trial in Munich did not bring the clarification hoped for by the relatives.  
 
Racist murders and attacks are not isolated incidents, but are part of a long history of racist violence in Germany, which reached a peak in the 1990s. On July 27, 2000, a bomb exploded at the Düsseldorf Wehrhahn S-Bahn station, causing life-threatening injuries to ten migrants – six of them Jewish.
 
This racist violence is contrasted by the struggles of the relatives who, together with people in solidarity, are working for a dignified remembrance and clarification. Often, after court proceedings have been concluded, art spaces remain as places of social renegotiation, of indictment and accusation. Thus, in recent years, relatives and activists have organized various civil society tribunals (tribunals "NSU-Komplex auflösen") or created their own spaces of remembrance with artists from the perspective of migration. But what role can art play with regard to transformative justice and contested memory? How can the topic be negotiated in the art field without appropriating the knowledge of migrants and depoliticizing the content?


Gamze Kubaşık, Ülkü Süngün, a representative of NSU Watch NRW and Aurora Rodonò will talk about migrant self-organization, the court cases and unanswered questions, and about the im/possibilities of a practice in solidarity between art and activism.
 
Gamze Kubaşık is the daughter of Mehmet Kubaşık, who was murdered by the NSU in Dortmund on 4.4.2006. Gamze Kubaşık is committed to the memory of her father and fights for the clarification of the NSU complex.
 
Ülkü Süngün is an artist who uses process-oriented and collaborative approaches to investigate migration and identity politics as well as memory. For this she uses media such as photography, video, installation and sculpture. With the Institute for Artistic Migration Research, founded in 2017, she makes this artistic, social and socio-critical practice structurally visible and uses spaces nomadically.
 
NSU Watch is composed of about a dozen anti-fascist and anti-racist initiatives, groups and individuals from all over Germany. Together they work on the thematic complex "NSU", right-wing terror and racism. NSU Watch has critically accompanied the NSU trial in Munich for over five years, and has also been observing investigative committees and court trials since 2013.
 
Aurora Rodonò is a freelance cultural worker, lecturer and diversity manager as well as part of the initiative Herkesin Meydanı - Platz für Alle, which is campaigning for a memorial on Keupstraße in Cologne for the victims of the NSU.
 
The talk will be conducted in German and is accessible without barrier and free of charge. Photography is not permitted.

NUQTA – The Beginning

Festival ›Transient‹

Die japanische Installations- und Performancekünstlerin Chiharu Shiota beschäftigt sich immer wieder mit den Themen Zeit, Raum und Vergänglichkeit. Gemeinsam mit dem Musiker Jeremias Schwarzer und dem Konzertdesigner Folkert Uhde hat sie die Konzertinstallation ›NUQTA – The Beginning‹ entwickelt, die 2021 im Rahmen den TRANSIENT Festivals an mehreren Orten in der Eifel zusammen mit den örtlichen communities bespielt wurde (www.transientimpuls.com). Dabei nahm die Konzertinstallation im Kontakt mit den unterschiedlichen Aufführungsorten jeweils unterschiedliche Formen an und trat in Resonanz mit vielfältigen Bedeutungs- und Beziehungsebenen. Düsseldorf ist nun die erste urbane Spielstätte des Projekts. In der Sammlung Philara finden drei Aufführungen statt, bei denen die Musiker*innen des TRANSIENT Artistic Research Ensembles solistisch und im Ensemble in Dialog mit der Installation treten. Der Raum wird zum lebendigen Organismus voller Überraschungen.

Adjustable Monuments – Philara Collection

 

Guided Tour

What forms of memory does the future need? Based on the debate about the re-evaluation of monuments in public space, the group exhibition Adjustable Monuments poses the question of who, what and, above all, in what form we want to remember in the future.

The curators of the show, Julika Bosch and Katharina Klang, will guide through the exhibition and present ten positions that discuss immaterial, temporary, interactive, multidirectional, or collective approaches to memory culture.

International Symposium on the Public Relevance of Privately Founded Art Institutions

What does socially relevant art patronage look like in the 21st century?

Based on the four local institutions in the Rhineland Independent network we will examine the potentials, societal expectations and social responsibilities of private collecting and exhibition practices. The conference will combine academic lectures with contributions from international collectors and other patrons of the arts who will put their various initiatives for discussion. The aim is to explore the possibilities of a cultural infrastructure that is no longer based solely on the opposition of ‘public’ and ‘private’, but that uses synergies creatively, responsibly and in a forward-looking way. For a lively and diverse museum landscape and for the benefit of all!

Ilka Helmig, Katharina Klang, Dr. Francesca Raimondi, Anys Reimann, Aneta Rostkowska, Theresa Weber

In 1921, a hundred years ago, the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf was one of the last academies to follow suit, granting female artists the opportunity to pursue an academic education in the arts. Female students meanwhile constitute more than half of the body of students at art academies in Germany, yet they are not equally represented in terms of numbers and diversity in museums, on the art market and teaching professions. Women with experiences of intersectional discrimination are affected by this to an even greater extent. Together with Curated Affairs, the Philara Collection invites you to a talk about the general institutional conditions and still existing disadvantages as well as potentials and spaces of possibility. The conversation will be held in German.

Jeff Koons — von Rainald Goetz

A scenic installation at Philara Collection

The title of the play »Jeff Koons« leads us to believe that it is an artist related drama. However Koons himself does not make an appearance in this play. The american, dazzling star in the art business serves Goetz, the obsessive of literature, as a reverberation space, a frame of reference, which aided by the coordinates, sketches an artist's life. 

The play will only be performed in German.

ROSA

Book Launch and Performance

In the exhibition “ROSA” at the Philara Collection, the artists Rosilene Luduvico (b. Espirito Santo, Brazil, 1969; lives and works in Düsseldorf) and Sabrina Fritsch (b. Neunkirchen/Saar, Germany, 1979; lives and works in Cologne) teamed up for a temporary project. This book documents their collaboration in which – inspired by Ingeborg Bachmann’s novel Malina – they undertook a painterly exploration of the “legend of a woman who never existed.” In cooperation with tanzhaus nrw the idea of ROSA will reappear during a performance by Sophia Seiss.
