JUNGE AKADEMIE: Laboratory of Contested Space / Art & Truthtelling
With contributions by Tatiana Bazzichelli, Göksu Kunak a.k.a. Gucci Chunk, Luiza Prado de O. Martins, Mykola Ridnyi, Cemile Sahin, Eva Tepest & Lynn Takeo Musiol, Christian Tschirner, Voin de Voin
The JUNGE AKADEMIE supports international artists from all of the arts sections of the Akademie der Künste by providing residency and work fellowships as part of an interdisciplinary artist-in-residence programme. The three-month studio residencies offer fellows time, space and resources to focus on their art in a new environment. With this, the JUNGE AKADEMIE programme creates an open space for artistic research and the production of art and knowledge, which is actively shaped by each year's group of fellows together with mentors and members of the Akademie. It is an essential responsibility to maintain this free and protective space for artistic expression and exchange, experimentation and encounters across political and cultural borders.
In the context of the John Heartfield exhibition the laboratory addresses digitality, post-truth and historiography as well as contemporary artistic strategies against misinformation and propaganda. Given the Covid-19 crisis, the topic has gained new meaning. Originally planned as a public event at the Akademie at Pariser Platz, with staged readings, performances, artistic interventions and panel, the lab took place exclusively online in the form of videos, that have mainly been produced in quarantine. The recipients are invited to delve into the topic through political and artistic discourse, performances and personal
narratives by the contributors. This format is a space for research and exchange with an open outcome. The lab is curated by fellow Lynn Takeo Musiol and the JUNGE AKADEMIE (Clara Herrmann & Luise Pilz).
