Documenting trouble

Documenting Troubles, semester workshop

The coming semester will revolve around the documentation of troubles, and the troubles of documenting. We’ll look at artistic practices that employ a notion of the document with the aim of providing a lesson and a proof (as in the verb’s etymological roots) so as to contest existing narratives or shed light on ones that are repressed. But we will also, no less importantly, trouble documenting — questioning and rethinking notions of veracity, realism and facticity, performativity and fiction. In an age during which imminent ecological disaster is denied, prevalent systemic racism occluded and extreme levels of economic inequality masked by elaborate tax evasion schemes, the urge to document, to insist on truth claims however provisional, seems vital.

Which of these terms might still feel relevant, and why? Can performative practices be considered documentary? Or are documentary practices by definition performative? Can fabricated images make truth claims? Is truth by definition fabricated? The semester will be an invitation to revisit some of these troubles, and stay with them.

For the first class meeting please prepare a short project outline (one-page max.), which sketches an idea that you wish to develop during the semester. It can, but doesn’t have to, relates to these questions. It can be rough, loose or speculative. We will follow the projects as they develop during the class meetings, with the aim of eventually staging an exhibition together (timing and format TBA), related to the questions and discussions that develop throughout the semester.

The meeting will be dedicated to student/participants presentations, encouraging the development of new work.

Series of meetings will be hosted by Lensbased class which will be facilitated by Boaz Levin. Meetings will be open for public and participants will be expected to be fully engaged with the process.

Connecting filmic, performative, and curatorial discussions with contemporary literature and critical writing, Mutterzunge investigates autonomy, anonymity and authenticity. As an inquiry into unorthodox forms of exhibition-making, Mutterzunge is an independent program of research visits, studio residencies, invited table conversations, and mapping of installations and events in Berlin.

Artist Talk with curator and writer Övül Ö. Durmuşoğlu: "Aesthetics of togetherness"

Aesthetics of togetherness
Thu 15. June 17h,Hardenbergstraße 33, R 115
When paradigms shift and collapse in Europe and around the world, many urgent self-reflexive questions arise for contemporary art praxis and theory. Our present is mostly an echo-chamber in fragments and yet the future needs to be invented by people. The hyper-masculine hegemony names decades of struggles by workers, women,
LGBTI, environmentalists, migrants as weaknesses. Therefore, it is our very responsibility – as artists, writers, curators, cultural and intellectual workers- to develop new languages of resilience and stand for all the gains. Can we define an aesthetics of togetherness in the fractured present? What is the affect and effect of art in the new narratives?
