Fragile Identities (2013/14)

 

Our identities are perpetually reinvented, (de)constructed, and narrated – yet they ultimately remain fragmentary and fragile. Specifically within our present age processes of identity formation are subjected to rapid changes and increasingly divergent challenges.

 

With its second yearly theme, the cx investigates the multifaceted and complex processes of identification we experience today from the perspective of different artistic and academic disciplines. A three-part symposium thematises fields and phenomena within which identities become fragile and unstable, and questions the limits of the pathological fragmentation of the self. Based on its conviction that identity issues play a significant role in reflecting their time, the cx investigates the fractures and adjacencies of contemporary identity construction with the intention of gaining insight into crises, periods of radical change, and the future potential of today’s world. The event is aimed at students and teachers at the academy, as well as the interested public.

Jahresthema „Fragile Identitäten"

 

„Me, myself and others". Repräsentationen des Selbst und des Anderen
(auch Kunstgeschichts-Modul D.05.09)
Dr. Susanne Witzgall


Raum E.O2.29, Akademiestr. 4
Zeit Mittwoch 14.00–16.00 Uhr, Vorbesprechung/Anmeldung: 09.04.2014,

Beginn: 23.04.2014
Kontakt susanne.witzgall@adbk.mhn.de

 

Wir versichern uns unserer selbst und der Anderen meist über Bilder. Doch visuelle Repräsentationen enthüllen nicht einfach Identitäten, sondern scheinen sie im Zuge des Abbildungsprozesses neben der versuchten Rekonstruktion gleichsam zu dekonstruieren, zu verstellen oder neu zu produzieren. Das Seminar untersucht verschiedene gegenwärtige Strategien der künstlerischen, wissenschaftlichen und alltäglichen Repräsentationen des Selbst und der Anderen – von Ich-Beobachtungen über das Handy („Selfies") bis hin zu polizeilichen Phantombildern oder ethnographischen Repräsentationen des Fremden und deren Reflexionen in der zeitgenössischen Kunst. Der Fokus des Seminars wird dabei neben der Malerei vor allem auf den fotografischen Medien liegen, da die Fotografie nach Roland Barthes „historisch gesehen, als Kunst der Person begonnen (hat): ihrer Identität, ihres zivilen Standes ....".

 

Das Seminar ist als theoretische Ergänzung zur Projektklasse von Tobias Zielony gedacht, die sich dem fotografischen und filmischen Porträt widmet (siehe dort), kann aber auch als eigenständige Veranstaltung oder als Kunstgeschichtsmodul belegt werden.

Please register with stakemeier@adbk.mhn.de to be provided with material

 

This is a bilingual Lektüreseminar (English/German) in which we will read parts of Gilles Deleuze's and Felix Guattari's „Anti-Oedipus. Capitalism and Schizophrenia" of 1972, in which the authors offer an aesthetic, political and practical critique of psychoanalysis. Those close readings will be confronted with some more contemporary attempts to map out our states of being within today's digital economies, and trace the repercussions those digitizations have had in contemporary art, cinema, image cultures and body schemes. We will be discussing examples from film, online publishing, artistic and performance practices, art and political criticism as well as fictional writing.

 

Dies ist ein zweisprachiges Lektüreseminar (English/German), in dem wir Ausschnitte des von Gilles Deleuze und Felix Guattari 1972 veröffentlichten Buchs „Anti-Ödipus. Kapitalismus und Schizophrenie" lesen werden, in dem die Autoren eine ästhetische, politische und praktische Kritik der Psychoanalyse anbieten. Diese gemeinsame Lektüre wird ergänzt durch neuere Versuche, unsere Lebensformen innerhalb der digitalen Ökonomien der Gegenwart zu positionieren und ihren Eingang in die Gegenwartskunst, in Kino, Bildwelten und Körperbilder nachzuvollziehen. Wir werden gemeinsam exemplarische Filme, Online-Publikationen, künstlerische und performative Produktionen, Kritiken und fiktionale Textformate diskutieren.

Identität durch Design / Identität des Designs

Dr. Angelika Nollert

 

Raum: E.ZG.04 und E.O2.29

Termine: Dienstag, den 24. Juni, 10.30–12.30 Uhr (E.ZG.04), Freitag den 27. Juni, 10.30–12.00 und 13.00–14.30 Uhr (E.O2.29), Dienstag den 1. Juli, 10.30–12.30 Uhr (E.ZG.04)

 

Konsumprodukte sind durch ihre spezifische Gestaltung visuell identifizierbar, Unternehmen geben sich durch bestimmte Merkmale eine Corporate Identity und Menschen streben nach Identität, um sich von der Gemeinschaft abzuheben. Design kann Identitäten materialisieren und kommunizieren. In diesem Sinne bestimmt sich die Qualität des Designs durch den Vermittlungserfolg der Identität.

 

Aber wie kann Design jenseits dieser Aufgabe auch eine eigene, unabhängige und zweckfreie Identität entwickeln? In dieser Frage lohnt eine vergleichende Betrachtung zu den benachbarten Disziplinen wie Kunst und Architektur und auf ihre jeweilige Geschichte des Identitätsbegriffes. Welche Verantwortung besitzt das Design in einer Gesellschaft, die Identität zwischen den Polen von Individualität und Pluralität auslotet?

Workshop with Emily Wardill

 

Room will be announced

Time 23.11. until 26.11.2013

Registration info_cx@adbk.mhn.de (by 01.11.2013)

 

The artist Emily Wardill (*1977 Rugby/UK) lives and works in London. Her works, which make a central contribution to contemporary art film, blur truth and fiction, symbolism and reality, and rationality and emotion. Thereby they unlock the hierarchical structures of knowledge and rearrange them. Her films consciously emphasise the irreducible qualities of images as well as their emancipatory potential – taking an interest in the way in which the symbolic is used within the communication of nebulous ideas or political rhetoric. Wardill’s work was exhibited, among others, at the Serpentine Gallery London (2012), the Showroom Gallery London (2010), the Gallery of Modern Art Glasgow (2011), the Baadischer Kunstverein Karlsruhe (2011), the MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, MA (2010) and the ICA, London (2008). In 2004 the artist showed the performance event The Feast Against Nature in Grizedale (Lake District) and at the New York PS1 Contemporary Art Center. In 2011 she took part in the Venice Biennale. Her work was awarded with the Jarman Award in 2010 and with the Leverhulme Award in 2011. Recently her films were shown in the context of solo shows in, for instance, the ARTES – Fundação Manuel António da Mota in Porto (2012) and in La Loge, Brussels (2014).

 


 

Design - eine Disziplin im Umbruch
Eintägiges Blockseminar am 12.11.2013
Karianne Fogelberg, M. A.

 

Raum E.O2.29, Akademiestr. 4
Zeit Dienstag, 10.30–12.30 Uhr und 13.30–15.30 Uhr, Beginn: 12.11.2013
Kontakt/Anmeldung fogelberg@adbk.mhn.de (bis 22.10.2013)

 

Das eintägige Blockseminar untersucht aktuelle Identitätskonstruktionen innerhalb der Designprofession und gegenwärtigen Entwicklungen, welche die Rolle des Designers hinterfragen. Neue kollaborative Formate und digitale Fabrikationsmöglichkeiten in Verbindung mit dem Internet ermächtigen Nutzer zunehmend, auf die Gestaltung von Gegenständen Einfluss zu nehmen, und kündigen eine Demokratisierung des Designprozesses an. Gleichzeitig dehnen Gestalter die Grenzen ihrer Disziplin aus und eignen sich neue Wirkungsbereiche in Kunst, Industrie und Wissenschaft an. So gestalten sie längst nicht nur Produkte im Namen einzelner Auftraggeber, sondern arbeiten interdisziplinär oder in Eigenregie an Lösungsansätzen für die komplexen Probleme der Gegenwart.

 

Das Seminar schließt sich an die Einführungsveranstaltung zum Jahresthema „Fragile Identitäten" an und ergänzt den Architekturfokus des Panels „Identitäten im urbanen Konflikt" (13.12.2013).

Dass Künstler und Künstlerinnen als labile Grenzsubjekte idealisiert oder auch verteufelt werden, ist nichts Neues – aber die Formen der Mythologisierung verändern sich stetig. „Wie heute leben in diesem Schema? Wie es unterlaufen, wie es abstoßen, wie es funktionalisieren?"

In den letzten Jahrzehnten entwickelte sich der Mythos vom allseitig flexiblen, freien Künstlersubjekt zum Vorbild freiberuflicher Arbeitsformen, sei es in angrenzenden Gebieten wie Film, Design oder Architektur oder in scheinbar weiter entfernten wie Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft oder Popkultur. Der permanente Grenzgang und seine Idealisierung wurden zum zentralen Schema kapitalistischer Existenzweise. 2010 gaben Juliane Rebentisch und Christoph Menke das Buch „Kreation und Depression" heraus, das genau dies diskutierte. In den letzten Jahren erschienen unzählige Romane, Filme, Blogs, Musikformen, politische Theorien, Diagnostiken, psychologische und philosophische Texte, die sich damit beschäftigen, an welchen Stellen diese Grenzerscheinungen in ihre Zersetzung übergehen. Hieraus entstanden neue Genres und Medien, Mischformen aus Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Okkultem, Esoterik, die eine Subjektform jenseits linearer Alltagswelten auszumachen scheinen.

 

Dieses Seminar diskutiert die vielfältigen künstlerischen und künstlichen Existenzformen heute und betrachtet ihre interdisziplinäre Allgegenwärtigkeit. Eine materialreiche Zerfallsstudie auf der Suche nach produktiven, lebbaren Zugängen. Das Seminar schließt sich an die Einführungsveranstaltung zum Jahresthema „Fragile Identitäten" an und sollte in Kombination mit diesem besucht werden.

 


 

„Fragile Identitäten" in Kunst und Wissenschaft

(auch Modul D.04.09, Modul D.05.09)
Dr. Susanne Witzgall

 

Raum E.O1.23, Akademiestr. 4
Zeit Freitag 14.00–15.30 Uhr‚ Beginn: 15.11.2013
Kontakt susanne.witzgall@adbk.mhn.de

 

Das Seminar lehnt sich inhaltlich eng an die Konzeption des dreiteiligen Symposiums „Fragile Identitäten" an und findet immer an den jeweils verbleibenden Freitagen statt. Ausgehend von den sechs inhaltlichen Schwerpunkten des Symposiums widmet sich das Seminar dem heutigen Subjekt zwischen möglichen Identitätsverlusten und multiplen Identifikationsangeboten. Es fragt danach, welche aktuellen personalen und kulturellen Identitätskonstruktionen KünstlerInnen parallel zu den Wissenschaften untersuchen und inwiefern diese mit den Krisenherden und gesellschaftlichen Umbrüchen unserer Gegenwart korrespondieren. Dabei werden Parallelen und Unterschiede in der künstlerischen und wissenschaftlichen Analyse des gegenwärtigen Subjekts beleuchtet und zahlreiche weitere Beispiele aus Literatur, Film, bildender Kunst und Musik herangezogen.

 

Das Seminar schließt sich an die Einführungsveranstaltung zum Jahresthema an und ist als Begleitseminar zum Symposium gedacht.

 


 

Separatismus und Autonomie
2-semestriger Workshop/Exkursion
Prof. Dr. Kerstin Stakemeier

Fortsetzung aus SS 2013. Neueinstieg zum WS 2013/2014 nicht möglich.

 

Wie sieht eine aktuelle separatistische Praxis aus, nachdem Diskussionen um Gender und um (Post)Kolonialismus die identitären Beschränkungen der frühen Frauenbewegung zu Recht in Frage gestellt haben?

 

In direkter Zusammenarbeit mit den Kunstvereinen in Bonn und München fanden zwei öffentliche Workshops statt und wurde ein Fanzine in zwei unterschiedlichen Auflagen produziert. Im WS 2013/2014 werden wir gemeinsam an einer dritten Fanzineversion arbeiten, die als Teil des Buches „Door Between Either Or Part 3", publiziert vom Kunstverein München bei Blackdog Publishing (London) erscheint, sowie, zum Ende des Semesters, eine Abschlussversion produzieren, die von einer öffentlichen Veranstaltung an der und für die Akademie begleitet sein wird.
