Things We Share With Each Other – Announcements


In 2021, the Badischer Kunstverein is carrying out a comprehensive exhibition, research and event project dealing with images and counter-images of Europe. Next to the exhibition Things we feel for each other currently on view at the Kunstverein, a traveling academy called The things we share with each other is another central element of the project. The academy will be located in Karlsruhe and in the various cities of the participating project partners in Baku, Bucharest, Yerevan, Kiev, Krasnodar, Minsk, Prague and Tuzla.

The academy opens with a huge festival in September. Network artists and curators as well as cultural workers, scientists and activists are invited to critically address the divergent perspectives of an emancipatory and democratically designed Europe, which is questioned at the margins (but also at the center) for an increasing degree.

Originally intended as a traveling format, the academy will be set up primarily as a hybrid and digital platform due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic before returning to cities across a wider Europe. The academy aims to be a moving, non-hierarchical research group which is complemented by local collaborators in associated places. At the same time, the project is testing alternative concepts of teaching and learning in digital and hybrid structures.

The guests as well as the hosts of the academy jointly investigate the meaning of objects or things which, depending on who interprets them, who claims them and which resist their putative meanings, carry divergent and often antagonistic attributions of identity. Semantically charged, these elements can act as antagonistic artefacts, but also mediators and conciliators in a dialogue between a multiplicity of European societal and cultural constellations.

Participants in the Academy: Larissa Agel, Vahram Aghasyan, Lala Aliyeva, Damir Arsenijevic, Anja Casser, Yvonne Fomferra, Leyli Gafarova, Michaela Geboltsberger, Ilkin Huseynov, Sevil Huseynova, Veronika Janatková, Anna Jermolaewa, Anna Kartrhamömer Khamer Schömer Khamer Khamer Schömer Khamer , Jura Shust, Aleksei Taruts, Ovidiu Țichindeleanu, Raluca Voinea, ZIP Group
