*Behaupten, Meinen, Bedeuten* - Ein Workshop zum Artist Statement mit Nina Lucia Groß und Tilman Walther

  • Venue:

  • Online-Workshop via BigBlueButton

Viele Künstler*innen stehen spätestens zu ihrem Abschluss vor der Herausforderung, den Rahmen der informellen Peerreviews, Klassengespräche und performativen Mitteilungen zu verlassen und teilweise zum ersten Mal textlich Stellung zur eigenen Arbeit zu beziehen. Doch wie beschreibt man mit sprachlichen Mitteln die eigene Kunst und wie die der anderen? Übersetzt man die eigene Kunst in Text oder entwirft komplett neu? Was geht verloren, was kommt dazu? Wie kann ich sagen, was ich meine und wie kann ich meinen, was ich sage, wenn mir die Sprache fehlt?

In einem digitalen Workshop wollen wir uns mit eigenen und fremden Artist Statements, ihren Wortschätzen, Floskeln und Haltungen befassen, die Funktionen, Schwierigkeiten und Möglichkeiten dieser Textform besprechen, das kritische Lesen und Schreiben erproben sowie solidarische Kritik üben.


Nina Lucia Groß ist als Kunsthistorikerin und Kuratorin in diversen Zusammenhängen tätig und beschäftigt sich dabei mit Gender, Wissenschaftskritik, Architektur und Popkultur.
Tilman Walther ist als Künstler und Kurator tätig und publiziert zu Themen wie Solidarität, Architektur, Computerspielen und der Soziologie der Arbeit.

Beide arbeiten zusammen als kuratorische Leitung des Freiraums im Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe. Der Freiraum ist seit September 2020 der offene Projektraum und Treffpunkt im MK&G.

Anmeldung
(für max. 10 Teilnehmer*innen) unter swaantje.benson@hfbk.hamburg.de
Die Workshop-Plätze werden nach der Reihenfolge der Anmeldungen vergeben.
Dieser Workshop richtet sich an Studierende im Abschlussjahr und Graduierte bis 5 Jahre nach dem Studium.

Summer Break

The HFBK Hamburg is in the lecture-free period, many students and teachers are on summer vacation, art institutions have summer break. This is a good opportunity to read and see a variety of things:

Live und in Farbe: die ASA Open Studios im Juni 2021

Since 2010, the HFBK has organised the international exchange programme Art School Alliance. It enables HFBK students to spend a semester abroad at renowned partner universities and, vice versa, invites international art students to the HFBK. At the end of their stay in Hamburg, the students exhibit their work in the Open Studios in Karolinenstraße, which are now open again to the art-interested public.

Unlearning: Wartenau Assemblies

The art education professors Nora Sternfeld and Anja Steidinger initiated the format "Wartenau Assemblies". It oscillates between art, education, research and activism. Complementing this open space for action, there is now a dedicated website that accompanies the discourses, conversations and events.

School of No Consequences

Everyone is talking about consequences: The consequences of climate change, the Corona pandemic or digitalization. Friedrich von Borries (professor of design theory), on the other hand, is dedicated to consequence-free design. In “School of No Consequences. Exercises for a New Life” at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, he links collection objects with a "self-learning room" set up especially for the exhibition in such a way that a new perspective on "sustainability" emerges and supposedly universally valid ideas of a "proper life" are questioned.

Annual Exhibition 2021 at the HFBK

Annual exhibition a bit different: From February 12- 14, 2021 students at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts, together with their professors, had developed a variety of presentations on different communication channels. The formats ranged from streamed live performances to video programs, radio broadcasts, a telephone hotline, online conferences, and a web store for editions. In addition, isolated interventions could be discovered in the outdoor space of the HFBK and in the city.

Public Information Day 2021

How do I become an art student? How does the application process work? Can I also study to become a teacher at the HFBK? These and other questions about studying art were answered by professors, students and staff at the HFBK during the Public Information Day on February 13, 2021. In addition, there will be an appointment specifically for English-speaking prospective students on February 23 at 2 pm.

HFBK Graduate Survey

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them. Therefore, it sees itself as critical of society – and at the same time optimizes the existing. So what is the political dimension of Social Design – is it a motor for change or does it contribute to stabilizing and normalizing existing injustices?
