The interdisciplinary studio program

offers individual work spaces to artists, architects, designers, and theoreticians for a period of up to three years. Applications for studios are reviewed annually by a committee comprised of the Board and Advisory Board. Studio grant recipients are assigned their own work space, with access to a shared kitchen and a large communal meeting room on the third floor, while they also have free access to the various workshops and administrative offices at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. The individual studio spaces are approximately 25 sq meters.

Alba Frenzel

My project is a large-scale research in which the liverwurst tree is dealt with as if it were art or with art as if it were a liverwurst tree. The qualities of the tree that can be rethought to the qualities of art are selected. In this way, art grounds itself and we get to know the liverwurst tree.
I am working on a format between studio and exhibition, where I am active and present as an artist with photography, sculpture, text, text images, with sung and spoken quotes that I encounter in the course of the research, performative elements, readings and lectures.

 

One of the most important questions of this research is how close I can get to the tree using found material.
For indeed, thanks to the many possibilities of Internet research, I can investigate something that I have never seen in reality. But what does the virtual experience of the liverwurst tree do to me?

Lena Meinhardt & Eva Dörr

Lena Meinhardt and Eva Dörr have been working together as an artist duo since 2019. Their works meet in the field of sound installation.
In Lena Meinhardt’s compositions, recordings of places, objects or texts take on a life of their own through powerful syntheses of sound. Together with Eva Dörr, they create interdisciplinary and context-related works. Eva Dörr’s artistic focus is on (sound) installation and video. She focuses on the acoustic perception of mostly marginal spaces and places.
Both met at the Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts. There, Lena Meinhardt was a contact student in computer music with Prof. Piet Johan Meyer, while Eva Dörr was a guest student in the electronic music studio after completing her teaching degree in art and mathematics.

 

Ralentir is a video and sound work created during the fellowship at the Künstlerhaus. It consists of video and sound footage recorded by the duo in the Paris Metro. The camera was held up to the window of the metro. City views, tunnels, platforms and waiting passengers pass by. Visual and sound material were heavily montaged.
Through the transformation of the sound material and extreme montage in the image, these layers and the temporal structures within them become intertwined.

 

The work ABELKA is part of the self-organized exhibition project “Kehrmaschine”. Synchronized with other works in the exhibition, the 8-channel sound installation mixes the hall’s ventilation system with a 60-minute composition that takes spatial memory as its theme, filling the hall with sounds and their reflections.
Similarly, image and sound evolve in a loop that intertwines exterior and interior views of the city. As the different levels rush past and into each other, the patterns of time and sense of time continuously dissolve.

Lennart Cleemann

Lennart Cleemann (*1990) studied architecture (Hanover, Aarhus, Basel and Stuttgart). At the ABK Stuttgart he was part of Reto Boller’s art class and thus found his way into artistic practice.

 

At the Künstlerhaus he explores ideas and notions of “home”. He works with space and material. Through the construction and abstraction of rooms, furniture and playground equipment, he explores his environment and attempts to gain an understanding of its processes. In this process, the studio has become a place of necessity. It becomes a physical arena of the interior, absorbing whimsy, dust and sweat. The daily change of this intimate space and its observation serves the exploration of the self.

 

On his process he writes:

My work takes place in physical space.
I act and react.
I do not know what I want.
I act.
Material guides me.
I try not to think.
Does not work.
Tidying up, making order, discovering connections.
Satisfied with the stupid simplicity of the process.
Going for a walk.
Finding things.
Dragging to the studio.
Cluttering up.
Letting go.
Piss.

Janis Eckhardt

Janis Eckhardt’s (*1994) working method combines personal fascinations with contemporary social circumstances through the lens of constellations and objects. His works are mostly the result of a casual momentum that emerges from these accumulated materials. Performative aspects as well as the reutilization of his own and other material—plus its history, distribution and recontextualization—are the mechanisms running through his work. He is consequently always in search of a form of reproduction and representation that is not merely symbolic but rather an intervention that produces and perpetuates ambiguity.

Mona Zeiler

In Mona Zeiler’s works we encounter common materials and forms that refer to the familiar. They are part of our environment, but rarely the focus of our perception. Combining analog and digital working techniques, Zeiler develops sculptural installations that engage with the three-dimensional components of our living environment.

 

In her collage-like carefully arranged constellations, Zeiler combines artificial materials with natural materials and those that imitate natural properties.
She detaches structures and objects from their original context, brings them onto a plane, and relates them anew to further processed surfaces and materials. Metal constructions, glass and wood elements, digitally processed image material, printed plastic tarpaulins meet ceramic objects, molds made of plaster or elements made of stone. The boundaries between the industrially produced and the manually processed merge and blur.

 

Her works trace the levels of meaning of things and establish links between the materials and forms used and concepts such as inside and outside, support, protection, permeability and demarcation. Within these arrangements, the human being appears merely as an order-giving (invisible) point of reference.

 

With these juxtapositions, Mona Zeiler examines the relationship between the forms and their textures for their aesthetic and content-related attributions and challenges the viewer to new associations and contextualizations.

 

Mona Zeiler (*1989 in Ellwangen) studied Fine Arts in the Department of Sculpture as well as Intermedial Design at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart, where she graduated in 2017. In 2019, Zeiler received the Peter Hans Hofschneider Prize of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg and in 2021 the residency scholarship at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris of the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, Baden-Württemberg. She has exhibited at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Kunstraum Riehen, and Kunstverein Freiburg, among others.

Lennart Cleemann

Lennart Cleemann (*1990) has a background in architecture. He studied in Hanover, Aarhus and Stuttgart. Before joining the Kunsthochschule in Stuttgart, he did an internship at Buchner Bründler Architekten in Basel (Switzerland). This time shaped his way of thinking and working attitude regarding what he calls “poetic pragmatism”. It was in Reto Boller’s art class that he discovered his affinity for direct contact with material and its emotional potency.

 

His work deals primarily with themes of oneness and togetherness, as well as themes of sexual desire and consumption. Liberation from a felt helplessness in the face of socially and intellectually entrenched structures is a goal of his work. He has an affinity for raw, untreated materials, which are often the starting point of his work. These are often combined with found objects from the street and construction sites and put into context with each other.

He applied to Künstlerhaus Stuttgart with the intention of using the studio provided as a test space for installations, in the sense of a dystopian apartment. The idea stems primarily from his exploration of the motif of the bed as a place of retreat, lethargy, but also intimacy and joy.

 

He explores emotional and relational contexts that occupy him in his everyday life. The test room can also be seen as a kind of construction site that is in constant flux. Life and death, beauty, destruction and decay have an equal right to exist here.

Alba Frenzel

Alba Frenzel studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig. During her studies, she focused on photography in the field of contemporary art. After receiving her diploma in the summer of 2017, she exhibited her work Fotopapier, Licht, Ei together with other prize winners as part of the photography competition gute aussichten – junge deutsche fotografie at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg. In spring 2021 her first publication Kreatur o.T. will be published by Vexer Verlag.

In her artistic-research work, she is interested in how “living art” is created. In her current research, she came across “liverwurst tree” by chance, which is on the same page as “life” in the Duden dictionary. “My work is large-scale research, dealing with the liverwurst tree as if it were art, or with art as if it were a liverwurst tree. The qualities that can be rethought to the properties of art are selected in the process.

 

The heterogeneous material I have collected on the tree, originally native to West Africa, comes from a variety of found sources: Images, catalog texts, videos, professional essays, and internet search results.”

Marlon Lanziner & Valentino Berndt

As the artist group MAVA, Marlon Lanziner and Valentino Berndt have been working on the sculptural elaboration of environmental phenomenasince 2014. In their project the rain brings the color, they demonstrate how copper’s weathering processes create streaks of color on a white marble staircase as it reacts with rainwater and how this transforms the staircase’s appearance.

 

Marlon Lanziner (born 1989) and Valentino Berndt (born 1988) studied fine arts at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart from 2010 to 2018.

 

In 2019 Marlon Lanziner designed the first edition of miniature Vadonna sculptures with Eva-Marie Holzner. The unique, individually colored bronze sculptures refer on the one hand to the classic representation of the Virgin Mary as the Madonna, and on the other to the female sex. The sculptures unite both of these aspects.

 

In 2020 Marlon Lanziner and Valentino Berndt published the MAVA art book The Speed of the Earth, which summarizes the artistic projects from 2014 – 2020. In the following year 2021 they plan to publish the book in the context of an exhibition.

n.n.n. collective

n.n.n. collective was founded by Jasmin Schädler, Julia Schäfer, and Susanne Brendel in 2014. Schädler studied theater directing at the Akademie für Darstellende Kunst Baden-Württemberg (2016) and art praxis at the Dutch Art Institute (2019). Schäfer graduated with a degree in fine arts from the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart (2020) and Brendel studied stage and costume design and visual arts at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart (2021).

Together, they develop formats grounded in both the visual and performing arts. Their content engages with literary and theoretical texts in equal measure as well as their potential to activate scenic processes. Their works have been shown in venues including the project space at the Kunstverein Wagenhalle, the Schauspiel Stuttgart, and the Theater Rampe. With the aid of a publication grant from the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg, their book vom Aufgang der Sonne (From the Rising of the Sun) will be released in 2021. It will present texts and artistic works within the context of a critical examination of Hegel’s lectures on the philosophy of world history.

Helen Weber

Helen Weber (*1994) studied fine arts in Stuttgart and Istanbul. She works individually and collectively between interior and exterior space, and is part of the Schwäbischer Online-Albverein, kollektiv_mitteperformance, and ROSANNAWIDUKIND. Weber throws herself into different contexts with a field-research approach, resulting in actions, sculptures, texts, video installations and various forms of documentation. For some time now, she has been interested in the contradictions of the “German Forest,” an ideological playground between survival, woodland solitude*, folklore, protest, ticks, nature and climate protection.
*In July 2020, the “Black Forest Rambo” Y. Rausch disarmed four police officers during a call-out to his garden hut and subsequently found shelter from police helicopters in his native Black Forest during a six-day manhunt. In a video, a local resident describes the situation: “I was busy in the garden and on my way down I was looking along the street—because you just kind of glance around then for a moment—when I saw a young man in camouflage walking down the street with a long walking stick. He was walking like a hiker.”

Stadtlücken

Stadtlücken e.V.  is a group of designers from various disciplines who seek to make us more aware of public space and the urban experience and to encourage a digital-analogue network for the collaborative development of a livable city. A livable city offers non-commercial public spaces in which different people can meet and help to shape urban structures. The urban space that is to be shaped here is not only to be understood in terms of urban planning; it encompasses legal and knowledge spaces, as well as buildings and infrastructure, which must be accessible to all.

 

Regular discussion events such as Einmal im Monat—Wem gehört die Stadt? (Once a month—To whom does the city belong?) promote interaction and offer initiatives and interested citizens the opportunity to network further. Together they discuss urban issues such as “What is participation?”, “Where do homeless people actually live?”, or “How does cooperation work?”. Through this network, the right to the city in Stuttgart is assessed, put to the test, developed further, and implemented as a basic principle.

 

Stadtlücken is also working on the development of a cooperative urban space at Österreichischer Platz and on a concept for an interface between politics, administration, and citizens in the form of the Office for Public Space, which will open at the Architekturgalerie am Weißenhof in summer 2020.

Ülkü Süngün

Ülkü Süngün studied sculpture at the State Academy of Fine Arts. Using various media such as photography, installation, sculpture, and lecture performances, she critically examines migration and identity (politics) and memory in her work, and also carries out artistic research with her process-oriented and collaborative approach. As a lecturer at the Merz Akademie and the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, she also explores questions of emancipation in her teaching.

Her project Institut für Künstlerische Migrationsforschung (IKMF; Institute for Artistic Migration Research) is currently being realized at the Künstlerhaus. Founded in 2017, her association enables her to make her previous artistic and sociocritical practice structurally visible and also to use spaces nomadically. As part of this project, the event series ACTIVIST ACADEMY. VISUAL STRATEGIES I was held at the Künstlerhaus in the spring of 2019, along with with several open workshops. She also had a residency with IKMF at zeitraumexit in Mannheim in 2019: GEMEINGUT JUNGBUSCH. She investigated the functions of migration and cultural institutions in the context of gentrificationin the Jungbusch neighborhood. The short film series KANAKINO with Belit Sag and Cana Bilir-Meier was the main element of this residency.

One of the aims of his work is also the liberation from perceived helplessness in the face of firmly entrenched social and conceptual structures. He applied to the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart with the desire to use the studio provided as a test space for installations—a kind of dystopian bedroom. This idea originates primarily from his interpretation of the bed as a place of retreat and lethargy, but also intimacy and joy.
Through these Betonbetten (Concrete Beds) he explores the emotional and relational connections that hold his attention in everyday life. The test space can also be viewed as a kind of construction site in a state of constant change. Death and life both find their raison d’être here.

Alba Frenzel (born 1984) has lived in Leipzig since studying at the Academy of Fine Arts. During her studies she focused on photography in the context of contemporary art. In summer 2017, after her degree, her work Fotopapier, Licht, Ei (Photo Paper, Light, Egg), was exhibited alongside other prizewinners as part of the photography competition gute aussichten—junge deutsche fotografie at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. The pictures we real l created in a darkroom solely by means of the interaction between photographic paper and light. She used hen’s eggs in various physical states to create her images, which resulted indifferent shapes of varying intensity. In 2019 she began a residency at the Künstlerhaus Salzwedel.
In her photographic work Aus erdgeschichtlicher Sicht (From a Geological Perspective), she photographed ice cream counters in ice cream parlors. Due to the angle and coloration of the shot, they took on the appearance of natural rock, lava, or mud formations.
Her current work explores the creation of a living art through the lens of the Leberwurstbaum.

Jasmin Schädler

Jasmin Schädler is a director and visual artist. After her bachelor’s degree in physics and cultural studies, she studied theatre direction under Christof Nel at the Academy of Performing Arts Baden-Württemberg and completed a master’s degree in art practice at the Dutch Art Institute. Her artistic focus lies in the dissection of contexts and etymologies; technology and perception are currently her central concerns. Her work on the interaction between humans and algorithms is a longer-term artistic research project. She recently gave a lecture performance on this topic at Silent Green (Berlin) in May 2019.

For the festival Die irritierte Stadt (The Confused City) in 2020, she is currently creating a work with Bongile Gorata Lecoge-Zulu that deals with the performative diversity of the perception of urban space. As part of the collective die apokalyptischen tänzer*innen (www.apocalyptic.dance) she develops performances in close cooperation with Theater Rampe and also as part of Freischwimmen, a platform for young talent.

Amiko Li

Amiko Li (born 1993) is a visual artist who works in the fields of photography, text, and video. His works investigate the paradox of intimacy and distance. Through strategies of reenactment, exchange, and mistranslation, his works explore an aleatory approach to nuances in the cultural and social system, as well as the ethics of language and representation. He is currently working on a text-based project that draws from sources such as acupuncture, palmistry, the induction of psychogenic diseases, tetrachromacyin birds, evolution, value systems, and bodily autonomy.

 

Due to the pandemic, Amiko Li is currently not able to enter Germany, so his scholarship will be postponed accordingly.

After studying design in Bolzano, Veronika Schneider (born 1991 in Berlin) moved to Stuttgart, where she has been studying art and art education at the State Academy of Fine Arts since 2016. She studied under Rainer Ganahl, discoteca flaming star, and is currently completing her bachelor’s degree under the supervision of Antonia Low. Through museum workshops and self-initiated art programs, she interrogates the moment in which art is created. Veronika Schneider is interested in the open state of unknowing. It is to do with the human body, which is influenced by architecture, art, or other forms of symbolic violence, and is in constant contact with cold and smooth surfaces. The contrast between hard facts and intuitive knowledge is also the focus of her sculptural exploration of glass as a material.

 

Veronika Schneider is currently using Amiko Li’s studio, but she is not a Künstlerhaus Stuttgart scholarship holder.

anorak

anorak is a curatorial trio consisting of Lukas Ludwig, Johanna Markert, and Florian Model. Their work focuses on the collaborative process and the conviction that a collaborative working method opens up possibilities that go far beyond their individual approaches. The starting point for anorak’s projects is their interest in other artistic positions, and the projects are created in close collaboration with young local and international artists and cultural workers. For anorak, creating exhibitions means developing venues for serious mutual exchange and a dialogue between young artists.

Since 2016 the trio has been running the non-profit art association Anorak e.V. with the aim of creating an institutional infrastructure that enables young artists and cultural workers to realize their works and create a discussion around them. In the first year of their studio scholarship anorak realized the exhibition project Gemini (2018/19) in cooperation with Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Akademie Schloss Solitude, and the Delphi Cinema. Starting from the figure of the double as an other in itself, Gemini posed the question as to what extent forms of preconceived narratives—myths, fate, and history—trigger identification processes and form contemporary subjectivities within them.

The multi-part project, which began in autumn with the film premiere of A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT—THE VERY TALE by Katharina Jabs, involved an online and print magazine, an events program, and two exhibition chapters.

anorak’s studio at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is a workspace, the headquarters of their association, a meeting place, and a starting point for new projects all at once. anorak is currently working on freelance curatorial projects, including an exhibition at Villa Merkel that will be realized in 2020 as part of the Bahnwärter scholarship.

Sören Hiob studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart with Christian Jankowski and Mike Bouchet. He works across boundaries in several fields of contemporary artistic production: from painting, sculpting and installation to his main focus on performance and video. As far as content is concerned, he increasingly tries to develop perspectives that are independent and institutionally unaffiliated. With his works Hiob has been part of numerous group exhibitions – at several places in Stuttgart, of course, but also across Europe in Wrocław, Warsaw, Vaduz, London, Edinburgh, Basel, or Rome.

Anna Romanenko & Björn Kühn

Anna Romanenko (born in Moscow in 1983) initially studied theatre directing at the Theaterakademie Hamburg followed by architecture, New Media and Sculpting at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. She “designs objects with operative capacities as well as processes, which occur by means of objects.” Together with Björn Kühn she co-founded the performance collective Punch and Jude and the Verlag für Handbücher.

 

Björn Kühn (born in 1987) studied Fine Arts at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart as well as at Goldsmiths, University of London. In addition to diverse exhibition, performance and lecture activities and well as the collaborations with Anna Romanenko mentioned above, Kühn also co-founded the magazine Copter. In their artistic practice, Romanenko and Kühn deal with “inventing new mechanisms between humans, objects and their surroundings, describing them and designing tools for those mechanisms.”

Katharina Jabs

Katharina Jabs, born 1986 in Kazakhstan, is an artist and filmmaker. She studied fine art at the Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, documentary film at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, and new media at the Kyushu Sangyo University in Japan on an exchange program.

 

From 2016 to 2017, she was the recipient of a state postgraduate scholarship for the artistic-scientific research project Ein Grinsen ohne Katze, which drew on the methods of the Japanese documentary film avant-garde in the sixties as well contemporary film-aesthetic theories on the topic “OFF.” The shooting of her current film, Ein Grinsen ohne Katze – THE VERY TALE, has been funded by the DAAD in Japan.

 

In her films, Katharina Jabs works with various states of absence. An essential criterium for her filmic practice is an engagement with the materials of the “OFF” (hors-champ, off-screen space), film’s imagina-ry space that exists/insists beyond the image frame that is staged and conceived through the camera and mise en scène.

 

In 2017 her film TERRY JO WANTED received the “Link 2 Future” prize of Zürich’s psychoanalytic society.

anorak

anorak is a trio made up of Lukas Ludwig, Johanna Markert, and Florian Model. The collaborative process lies at the heart of their work, along with the conviction that communal working methods open up possibilities far exceeding those enabled by an individual approach. Anorak’s projects start with an interest in other artistic positions and develop in close collaboration with young local and international artists and cultural producers. In their experiments with formats like exhibitions, dinners, conversations, and film screenings, anorak tries to develop spaces for earnest, reciprocal exchange and dialogue between young artists. Since 2016 the trio has run the non-profit Kunstverein Anorak e.V. Their recent exhibition and event projects include Mixed Feelings (2016), in collaboration with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and Palermo Galerie, as well as In a Room (2017) at Leopoldstr. 2 in Karlsruhe.
The anorak studio at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is simultaneously a work space, meeting place, and starting point for new projects. Anorak is currently working on a multi-part exhibition and event project titled Gemini, which will open early in the summer of 2018. Gemini will be realized in cooperation with the Akademie Schloss Solitude, among others.

Membership
04.12.2022, 07:00pm

The event will take place at Kunstverein Böblingen, Schloßberg 11, 71032 Böblingen.

Our first meeting on the topic of “Art Association(s) of the Future” took place on 4 October at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. With numerous guests and representatives of various art associations, we discussed problems and challenges that some established art associations are facing. Structures, processes, ideas and themes that have often developed over years and decades need to be questioned, further developed and possibly reinvented in order to be able to continue to do successful, artistically committed association work in the future. The representatives of the various art associations reported on their own concrete experiences, problems and approaches to solutions. The different perspectives and contexts resulted in an open, diverse and fruitful discussion for all participants. It also became clear that this was not the end of the story and that we would like to use this initial impulse to promote further exchange and networking between the art associations.
In doing so, we would like to take the opportunity to visit the various art associations and get to know them better: the host of our next meeting on 4 December at 7 pm will therefore be Kunstverein Böblingen. Invited to the meeting are Kunstverein Neuhausen, Kunstraum34, Oberwelt, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, anorak and Kunstverein Nürtingen.

“Diversity Development” with Markues Aviv from the BBK Berlin

 

On Friday 25.11.2022 at 5 pm Markues Aviv will report on the activities of the BBK Berlin in recent years. Markues Aviv is a board member of the professional association, which pursues the structural promotion of all visual artists. In addition, the BKK is active in cultural policy and advocates for open and permeable art businesses. It is precisely the diversity developments of organisations that Markues Aviv will focus on in his workshop: What are the basic figures and strategies for diversity development in cultural associations? And what transfer can the alliance draw from the experiences of the BKK for their future work? This is to be found out in a joint discussion.
Afterwards, the room will remain open for lingering. Drinks and small snacks invite us to enter into conversation and to continue networking.

“Abuse of power and the independent scene in Baden-Württemberg” with Paula Kohlmann and Frederik Zeugke.
Cooperation with FTTS, PZ and Theater Rampe

 

On Saturday 26.11.2022 at 3 pm we will deal with questions on how to deal with discrimination, assaults or abuse of power with Paula Kohlmann and Frederik Zeugke as a cooperation with FTTS, PZ and Theater Rampe. Even the art scene in Baden-Württemberg is not free of these issues. It is seldom spoken about, and consequences follow even more rarely. This should change! As artists and employees of institutions, we have recently been coming together to gather knowledge, to exchange ideas internally and to talk to the administration and politicians in order to develop strategies and measures. A change in thinking and acting is needed. On an individual, institutional and political level. Abuse of power is not an individual problem, but a structural one. In this workshop, we will gather different perspectives of those involved, discuss current priorities, focus on necessary goals, prepare very concrete next steps for action.
Doors open on Saturday at 2:30 pm, the workshop will start promptly at 3 pm.

For both workshops, please register by email to praesenz@dasbuendnis.net.

Flint Jamison: Masterworks on Loan, 2020, 2022
Flint Jamison
Exhibition
12.11.2022–02.04.2023
Opening reception:
Sat, 12.11.2022
07:00pm

Flint Jamison’s exhibition at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart investigates a tax-incentivized art loan program called “Masterworks on Loan,” which was established in 2015 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA), a collecting museum on the campus of the public state University of Oregon, in Eugene, USA. Jamison’s exhibition of newly commissioned work presents a damaging account of this museum loan program during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ultimately, Jamison reconsiders to what extent the JSMA settles the terms that define the museum’s obligation to serve a public who supports the institution through tax deductions, and for whose benefit it exists as a charitable organization. This reconsideration extends from the seemingly small and localized case of the JSMA, to the broader role art sector institutions have in conceptualizing, legitimizing, and implementing tax laws that facilitate divestment of public interests through extraction and exploitation.

 

Jamison’s exhibition at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart builds on his previous work exposing the lived politics of tax law, and it draws from a broad spectrum of literature relied upon by journalists investigating tax law and by critical tax theorists. Critical tax theory is a field of groundbreaking legal scholarship that examines the political and discriminatory aspects of tax law. It is an intellectual discipline that seeks to recognize how deeply consequential tax law is in managing property ownership, vast income inequalities, disproportionate exemptions, inherited advantages, disincentives, and indebtedness. Challenging historical claims that tax law is neutral or unbiased, critical tax theory intersects with other fields studying the ongoing impact of tax laws that have been ratified in the service of colonialism, class oppression, and racial-economic subordination. Significantly, critical tax theory has also long insisted that a complete study of the political dynamics of tax law would require an understanding of specific cultural contexts in which the tax laws operate.

 

Tax laws increasingly determine the operative structure of art institutions. The expansion of arts patronage globally is inextricably bound to the preferential tax laws that wealthy individuals, foundations, and corporations aggressively lobby for at the city, regional, and federal level. Consequently, the art sector has become dedicated to inventing and upholding legal-economic structures that reduce tax liability for high-net-worth individuals. This legal-economic bias mobilized through art is evidenced today by artworks as tax-exempt assets, art philanthropy as system of tax avoidance, and art workers as a freelance labor force that shifts the tax burden away from employers and onto the worker. Of course, it must be recognized that tax-avoidance laws are not solely distant legal permissions advocated for by the wealthy—these are laws that the broader art field routinely promotes as beneficial to artists, art institutions, art audiences, and the public at large.

November 8th 2022, 7pm

 

The basis for her work is the preoccupation with found material, which either originates from already existing collections or for which her own archival structures and documentary means are developed. Starting from this, she integrates and transfers objects into her own expression to create works.
The current pivot of her work is her engagement with nature, primarily with the world of insects, plants and fungi. Lis Klein gives insights into her collections, working methods and shows works in different stages.
Lis Klein studied fine arts at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. She lives and works in Stuttgart.

A project by studio holder Lennart Cleemann

For the exhibition “The Hunt” Moritz Berg and Lennart Cleemann went stalking in the Kräherwald. An approach of two artists and their practice with nature. Close to earth, approaching the supposedly dead. From spring to autumn. The conduct becomes hunting, thoughtfully, outside the usual sense of time. The ritual constitutes the change. The trophy perpetuates decay and consolidates our time.

Judith Engel, Katharina Jabs and Ann-Kathrin Müller: The view has been hazy for days. 35‘ 14‘‘

 

The film circles around the scene of a seismological station and negotiates which traces and cracks can be found in our thinking along the history of earthquakes. Starting from the physical uncertainty principle, the film examines the obsession of sharply viewing the world without distortion, and how that relates to the history of science and culture. The filmic montage of analogue photographs and essayistic text fragments creates a never-ending reel of still images that transports the film along its narrative. In this way, an associative access to reality is formulated that cannot rely on a certain that-has-been but recognises uncertainty and blurriness itself as conditions of experience and thus questions a principle of photographic and cinematic evidence.

 

The film accompanies the book „Das Signal“, published by Edition Taube in 2022.

September 24th, 2022, 2-5pm

September 28th, 2022, 3-6pm

 

Traditionally, the century-old Art of Shadow Puppetry has been used to join communities and engage in collective storytelling about what’s happening socially, politically, and culturally. Shadow Theatre has the potential to open us up to each other in ways not normally accessible and acts as a platform to bring together visual art, vocal and instrumental music, drama, literature, and dance, as well as the art of the puppeteer. The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart would like to provide a space where people could engage variously with the topics of institutional/ social/ structural critique and the immense power language/narratives have and how it affects our society psychologically, politically, and culturally. With this shadow theatre workshop, we would like to break down institutional/social structures metaphorically and imagine what a future could look like if we implement more transparent and intersectional structures.

 

If someone plays instruments (which are portable) they are welcome to bring them along.

“How to keep it open? Gender and institution”, Workshop with Ludgi Porto

 

September 30th, 2022, 3pm

October 8th, 2022, 3pm

 

The workshop “How to keep it open? Gender and institution” is the screening of the documentary “Raised Without Gender” by Milène Larsson, where binary gender identity comes into question in children’s education. The screening will be followed by an open discussion which aims to raise questions about the possibilities and contradictions of seeing gender as a fluid institution.

 

The educator Ludgi Porto is a Brazilian visual artist who has been living in Stuttgart for two years. She is currently investigating possibilities of gender identity in creative writing in relation to performance art.

Creative Empowerment Workshop for BPoC, with Yara Richter

 

1st October, 3-6pm

 

As part of Anike Joyce Sadiq’s exhibition “Mit Glück hat es nichts zu tun”, we warmly invite BPoC (Black and People of Colour) to a creative empowerment workshop. After several gentle relaxation and body exercises, we will delve into the space in and around us through drawing, writing and movement. Together and individually, we will focus on following creative impulses that arise. Without any pressure to produce anything, the workshop provides a moment for recharging and attuning. No prior experience is necessary, just come as you are.

 

Please note that this is a safer space event for BPoC.

For our 16th Tuesday Workshop we invite Lennart Cleemann.

 

Tuesday, September 13, 2022, 7 p.m.

The event will take place on the third floor, in the studio of the artist.

 

“In einem Raum werde ich reden
mein Atelier
meine Arbeit
in Enge
umgeben von Charakteren
physisch manifestierte Momente
forcierte materielle Intimität
unausweichlicher Terror
existentielle reelle
subjektiv die Brust
ein bisschen Ruhe
ein bisschen Lust”

 

Lennart Cleemann (*1990) studied architecture (Hanover, Aarhus, Basel and Stuttgart). At the ABK Stuttgart he was part of Reto Boller’s art class and thus found his way into artistic practice.

 

At the Künstlerhaus he explores ideas and notions of “home”. He works with space and material. Through the construction and abstraction of rooms, furniture and playground equipment, he explores his environment and attempts to gain an understanding of its processes. In this process, the studio has become a place of necessity. It becomes a physical arena of the interior, absorbing whimsy, dust and sweat. The daily change of this intimate space and its observation serves the exploration of the self.

Symposium "Kultur braucht Presse"
Events

Eine Veranstaltung des Vierten Organs

Sonntag, 4. September 2022, 14 bis 18 Uhr
im Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Reuchlinstraße 4b, 70178 Stuttgart, 4. Stock

 

Seit Jahren verliert die Berichterstattung über Kultur (Feuilleton), sowohl örtlich wie auch darüber hinaus gehend, merkbar an Bedeutung und Qualität in den Lokalblättern Stuttgarts – Stuttgarter Zeitung und Stuttgarter Nachrichten. Nicht zuletzt der massive Personalabbau in den Redaktionen beider Zeitungen hat dies bewirkt.

 

Es zeigt sich, dass der Umfang des täglichen Feuilletons in der Regel zwei Seiten umfasst, deren Beiträge zum größten Teil Agenturmeldungen mit keinem örtlichen Bezug sind. Durch diese Einschränkungen erlangen besonders örtliche, durch Tagesaktualität bestimmte Anliegen in der täglichen Kultur-Berichterstattung in Stuttgart nachrangige bis minimale Bedeutung; dazu gehören Kritiken, Reportagen, Ankündigungen von Ereignissen, Personalien … Das monatlich erscheinende Buch „Kulturreport Stuttgart“ vermag das beschriebene Defizit nur begrenzt aufzufangen. So verbleibt den im Kulturbereich Tätigen keine redaktionell ernstzunehmende, mediale Plattform mehr.

 

Vor diesem Hintergrund lädt die Basisinitiative des Künstlerhauses, das „Vierte Organ“, zu einer öffentlichen Diskussionsveranstaltung ein. Wir fragen:
• Wie kann kritische Kulturberichterstattung im lokalen Kontext aussehen?
• Was sind aktuell die wichtigsten Themen in der lokalen Kunst und Kulturpolitik?
• Wie erreicht man diverse Öffentlichkeiten?
• Was erwarten Künstler*innen, Kritiker*innen, Kulturinstitutionen und -verwaltung von Kulturberichterstattung und -kritik?
• Welche Formate wünschen wir uns?
• Wie lässt sich unabhängige Kulturberichterstattung finanzieren?

Exhibition of the members in the city hall Stuttgart, 4th floor

After two years of forced break due to corona, an exhibition will take place again this year in Stuttgart’s city hall. For this, the Künstlerhaus invited its artist members via Open Call to participate and submit works on this year’s theme of the exhibition “Island”.

 

21 artists have been selected and will again provide an insight into their current work in the 6th edition of the city hall exhibition. The artists not only draw on different media, but also approach the theme of the exhibition in different ways in terms of content and concept.

 

The cross-generational group exhibition once again impressively demonstrates the role of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart as a place of exchange as well as artistic production, and it also represents the cross-section of Stuttgart’s artistic diversity.

Zu unserer 15. Dienstags-Werkstatt laden wir Christian Diaz Orejarena ein.

 

Dienstag, 14. Juni 2022, 19 Uhr

Die Veranstaltung wird im 3. Stock im Künstlerhaus stattfinden.

 

Ein Comic, der sich mit der deutschen Kolonialgeschichte in Kolumbien beschäftigt. Im Rahmen eines Stipendiums bewegt sich Christian Diaz Orejarena auf den sogenannten »Lengerke Wegen« im Nordosten Kolumbiens, die von einem deutschen Unternehmer im 19. Jahrhundert angelegt wurden. Dort stößt er auf Heldengeschichten über skrupellose Kaufleute, Mythen und Geschichten rund um Ausbeutung und Größenwahn und wirtschaftliche Mechanismen, die sich bis heute fortsetzen. Auf verschlungenen Pfaden, Wegen und Gedanken folgen wir der Familiengeschichte des Autors, treffen auf aufklärerische Karnevalsmasken, den zum Leben erwachten Walking Man aus München und indigene Widerständler:innen.

 

Experimentell, lustig und abgedreht nähert sich Christian Diaz Orejarena in Otras Rayas – Andere Linien einem Thema an, das im deutschsprachigen Raum noch nicht viel Beachtung erfahren hat und das, obwohl es sehr enge Verbindungen nicht nur zwischen Kolumbien und Kaufleuten aus den hiesigen Hansestädten gab.

Christian Diaz Orejarena,

in München geboren und aufgewachsen, studierte in Berlin und Wien Konzept- und Medienkunst. Er arbeitet an recherchebasierten und interdisziplinären Projekten, die oft in kollektivem Zusammenhang entstehen. In seiner künstlerischen Arbeit erzählt er selbstironische und persönliche Geschichten über seine postmigrantische Biografie und konstruiert darüber einen dokufiktiven Blick auf sozio-politische, ökonomische und ästhetische Verbindungen zwischen Kolumbien und Deutschland. Den eigenen Wahnsinn vor Augen, hält er durch seine künstlerische Praxis der Gesellschaft den Spiegel vor die Nase und baut Zeichnungen, Videos und Aktionen ins Leben zurück, die von unangepassten Dingen, widerständigen Menschen und antikolonialen Traumwesen berichten. Seit er mit dem Kollektiv rampe:aktion zusammen arbeitet, motiviert er auch andere sich mittels Zeichnung, Film und Poesie eine undisziplinierte Welt zu erkämpfen.

Mit Glück hat es nichts zu tun
Anike Joyce Sadiq
Exhibition
21.05.–09.10.2022
Opening Reception:
Sat, 21.05.2022
07:00pm

The work of Anike Joyce Sadiq consistently reconsiders the extent to which social dynamics, intersectionality, and perspectives of difference are negotiated within institutional structures. Sadiq’s exhibition projects often produce scenographic spaces with installation works that activate a social-situational awareness of the immediate institutional context. The artist creates mechanisms and platforms for attentiveness to one’s social surroundings, including the people, their interactions, and their behaviors. Sadiq is interested in how interactive, divergent, and converging lived relations specifically play out within sites of artistic production and reception. The scenographic spaces that Sadiq produces contend with fundamental challenges to social connectivity, recognizing for instance that disclosure and exchange are pursued within art institutional structures that too frequently undermine these pursuits. Informing the planning, construction, and use of these spaces Sadiq creates within institutions, the artist at times takes an active mediating role in communications with representatives of the hosting institution and invited collaborators. Sadiq works as an interlocutor, seeking out other interlocutors and inviting in allies, in order to examine dependencies, reciprocities, differences, and hierarchies within the institutions where the artist works. Taking on this high-risk role of internal mediation in producing her exhibition projects, Sadiq employs a position of critical ambivalence that recognizes how institutions intended to be places of public-facing accessibility and facilitation almost always operate internally by deferral and obstruction.

 

Anike Joyce Sadiq’s first major monographic exhibition in Stuttgart, Mit Glück hat es nichts zu tun, presents newly produced work that carries forward the artist’s investigations into complex social dynamics through mediated spaces that center perceptions of difference. Sadiq’s exhibition at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart comprises multiple interrelated pieces situated within a large-scale installation. Sadiq wrote a questionnaire addressed to all association members of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.[1] The questionnaire itself and the responses to this multiple-choice survey are presented in the exhibition gallery. Additionally, beyond the artist’s exhibition in Stuttgart, the survey and database of survey results will be maintained indefinitely as an openly accessible online platform, with Sadiq distributing the survey to art institutions globally while updating language and other accessibility features to the website as the platform is more widely distributed. While the survey reflects on the status quo and demographics—the racially- specific, gender-specific, class-specific relations—that currently constitute the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Sadiq has created a large-scale installation in the gallery that is devoted to generating critically reflexive discussions about the future potential of the institution. Built from a repurposed scaffolding system, Sadiq’s installation emphasizes contingent relations and conditional infrastructure. Focusing on this critical horizon, Sadiq invited a semi-autonomous organization associated with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, named the Fourth Organ, to hold their monthly meetings within the large installation. Sadiq has been actively engaged in the Fourth Organ meetings since the organization’s founding in 2020, at the outset of the pandemic and most recent social justice uprising. The Fourth Organ is intended to offer an open, inclusive, interstitial space within the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, where individuals and groups can voice their interests for the institution. But the Fourth Organ is not solely a space for voicing open proposals or the politics of protest, the monthly meetings are intended to serve a very specific purpose of developing formal motions to be voted on at the annual membership meeting. For Sadiq, the porousness of the Fourth Organ is consistent with her artistic interests in holding space for contentious social dynamics and dissenting positions within art institutions. Because the Fourth Organ meetings are open to board members, staff members, association members, and non-members alike, safety and discretion are challenged by the authority dynamics present in these gatherings. The final work in Sadiq’s exhibition is an interview text the artist conducted with the writer Andrea Scrima that reflects on their experiences working in art institutions, with specific case-study attention given to recent experiences working within the Villa Romana, a German art institution which oversees a residency program in Florence Italy, and which offers related exhibitions and programming. Sadiq’s and Scrima’s incredibly candid first-person account evidences their experiential research into institutional conduct broadly, while also focusing in on the particularly fraught socio-economic conditions of the Villa Romana.[2]

[1] Consistent with the kunstverein structure, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is constituted by the legal-economic structures of association law in Germany. The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart currently has over 500 members.

 

[2] For each work within the exhibition, Sadiq engages in the complex messy work of analyzing, embodying, and enacting institutional structures. The work of institutional analysis and critique is frequently dismissed as being easily adopted and neutralized by the institution in question, but this dismissive characterization of institutional work does not account for the hard fought behind-the-scenes efforts by artists and their collaborators. It must not be forgotten that there are real limitations to confronting institutional structures through artistic positions, with artists’ projects being canceled and collaborating institutional representa- tives having their jobs terminated.

 

 

 

 

Mit Glück hat es nichts zu tun at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart has been organized in cooperation with Anike Joyce Sadiq’s concurrent presentation of her works “You never Look at Me from the Place from which I See You” (2015), “Papierstück” (2014) and “Berührung” (2008) at the permanent collection of the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart.

2022 21.05.–09.10.2022
Declined Declinations
Bea Schlingelhoff
Exhibition
21.05.–09.10.2022
Opening Reception:
Sat, 21.05.2022
07:00pm

Over the past decade, Bea Schlingelhoff has become increasingly known for producing site-responsive and situationally-specific exhibition projects that test institutional capacity for exposure work. Schlingelhoff’s exhibitions often initiate or accelerate an internal reflexive process of uncovering, divulging, and repairing historical trauma present within the immediate context of exhibiting institutions that hire the artist. For Schlingelhoff, tasking institutional representatives with this behind-the- scenes work of confrontational exposure and reparative justice is an artistic position-taking—a means by which the artist as a short-term contracted worker attempts to maintain safe distance from the deeply unsafe social conditions inherent to all institutions, and particularly with respect to transitional institutions claiming to be committed to structural change. Anticipating real danger when the freighted memory, identity, and legacy of an institution is unsettled, Schlingelhoff calls on institutional representatives to respond to this induced stress test. In doing so, the artist’s exhibitions consistently gauge institutional responsibility by asking: what capacity to respond do representatives have on behalf of their unsettling institutions?

 

Bea Schlingelhoff’s exhibition, Declined Declinations, proposes a legal institutional name change of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. Over the course of a multi-month process that began with an initial site visit in July of 2020, the artist prepared and submitted formal motions to change the gendered institutional name “Künstlerhaus” (“the male artists’ house”), and to change language in the institutional bylaws that reflects this gender-specific bias. The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart was founded by artists in 1978 as a space for artists to produce onsite while also discussing and redefining the onsite production conditions. It is an institutional context that is structurally equipped for reconsiderations of governance and policy-making from the perspective of art producers. This emphasis on the laboring artist who is not external to the art institution is embodied in the name of the “artist’s house,” a widely replicated categorical name of an art institution in the German-speaking context that offers onsite production and residency facilities for artists (i.e., the Künstlerhaus Bremen, the Künstlerhaus Dortmund, the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, etc). Consistent with the kunstverein structure, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is constituted by the legal-economic structures of association law in Germany, with bylaws that stipulate association members’ voting rights in governing the institution. The vast majority of members at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart are artists who pay the requisite annual membership fee of twenty-five euros. Other than this annual membership fee, there are no sanctioned conditions for becoming a member. Immediately upon gaining membership, any new member may submit motions to be voted on by the membership. Members of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart vote at the general assembly. The general assembly is a legally required body. Every association must hold a general or annual general assembly meeting at the intervals specified in the association’s articles of association. Members at the general assembly may elect members of the board, vote on various resolutions, and vote to change the statutes. Consequently, artists occupy a position that closely interrelates institutional governance arrangements and the immediate conditions of artistic production at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. Artistic positions and artistic criteria—rather than purely bureaucratic positions or technocratic criteria—are central to the administrative work of structural governance. And by emphasizing artists as primary contributors to governing decisions, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart potentially challenges the settled expectation that artists’ work should amount to purely content-related outcomes.

 

In 2021, Schlingelhoff became a member of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and submitted two formal motions that were voted on at the annual general assembly in November of that year. The first motion stipulated a change of name from Künstlerhaus Stuttgart to Künstlerinnenhaus Stuttgart (“the women artists’ house,” or “the female-identifying artists’ house”). This motion was defeated with 10 yes votes, 15 no votes, and 8 abstentions. The second motion stipulated that any language in the bylaws where the generic masculine is used would be changed to the generic feminine. This second motion was defeated with 7 yes votes, 19 no votes, and 4 abstentions. There were three widely expressed reasons for the down votes, which were communicated to Schlingelhoff by fellow members and institutional representatives. Firstly, the membership and institutional administration at large needed more time to become familiarized, informed, and educated on the political imperatives at stake as well as the practical implications of renaming the institution. Secondly, it was expressed that Schlingelhoff’s motion to change the name of the institution was reductive in that it offered only one single name change option selected by one member artist (this point was sometimes taken further to argue against an artist joining the membership to immediately propose structural changes to the institution, while also then presenting these proposed structural changes as material within an exhibition of their work). Lastly, it was expressed that within the context of gender-politics and broader political realities, changing an institutional name and corresponding language of the bylaws is a relatively trivial matter.

 

To this last point on the relative triviality of language, Schlingelhoff felt the response was obvious. There is of course a necessary correlation between the structures of society and those of language. The biases and exclusions of language are imprinted and internalized every day from a very young age consistently through life. The uncovering of the gendered and racialized nature of many linguistic rules and the unsettling of norms in how the use of language can be analyzed from a feminist viewpoint has proven to be of critical importance. And at this point, the various arguments that have been presented for retaining masculine/generic usage have been thoroughly documented, illustrated, and analyzed. There is a strange contradiction when one so adamantly refutes what one believes to be so trivial.[1] In response to the other expressed points, Schlingelhoff prepared and submitted a new set of motions to be voted on at the annual general assembly in March of 2022. Schlingelhoff submitted nine motions, each offering a different institutional name option. These nine name options were taken directly from widely accessible German language publishing style guidelines on the gender formulation of the phrase “artists’ house.” Schlingelhoff wanted to make sure the maximum number of variations on the gender formulation were represented, while keeping close to the most widely used gender neutral language guidelines and gender diversity teaching manuals (there are no established gender-neutral standard publishing guidelines as of yet in Germany). The only condition Schlingelhoff applied was that a name option could not entirely avoid confronting the gender politics (for instance, with the “Kunsthaus” Stuttgart, “the art house” Stuttgart). The nine name options proposed were as follows: 1.) Künstlerinnenhaus (generic feminine); 2.) Künstler/-innenhaus (forward slash with supplementary dash); 3.) KünstlerInnenhaus (internal capitalized letter “I”); 4.) Künstler:innenhaus (colon); 5.) Künstler*innenhaus (asterisk); 6.) Künstler_innenhaus (underscore); 7.) Künstler•innenhaus (bullet point); 8.) KünstlXhaus (X ending); 9.) Künstlerinnen- und Künstlerhaus (double naming).[2] While there is no conclusively fixed or settled agreement, each of the different typographic conventions used in these name options is recognized within the German publishing context as intended to disrupt the grammatical gender binary that is inherent in the German language.[3]

 

On March 17th of this year, 2022, the nine motions, and corresponding motions to change the language of the bylaws to mirror each of the nine motions, were up for a vote at the general assembly. These motions had been submitted weeks prior to the assembly so that they could be distributed to the entire membership two weeks in advance of the general assembly. There were meetings leading up to the assembly to provide opportunities for members to discuss the institutional renaming and change to the bylaws, and Schlingelhoff held an information session for the membership a day prior to the assembly. On the day of the general assembly, just before the nine name change motions were to be voted on, a member invoked their right to raise a motion without prior notification—a point of order that did not need to be submitted weeks in advance through the procedure to have a motion entered into the general assembly meeting agenda. This member raised the following point of order for a vote: “Shall the motions to amend the bylaws to change the name of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart be voted on today?” The resulting vote tally on this member’s point of order was 15 yes votes, 26 no votes, and 5 abstentions.[4] As a result of this sudden foreclosure of the vote on the nine motions to change the name of the institution, Schlingelhoff withdrew the corresponding motions to change the language of the bylaws. It should be mentioned that invoking one’s individual right in order to foreclose a planned vote from even taking place is a longstanding tradition within the history of oppression.

[1] There have been centuries of misogyny consciously and unconsciously attacking and mocking against language movements. They have been well covered, as follows: “(1) the ‘cross- cultural’ arguments; (2) the ‘language is a trivial concern’ arguments; (3) the ‘freedom of speech,/ unjustified coercion’ arguments; (4) the ‘sexist language is not sexist’ arguments; (5) the ‘word- etymology’ arguments; (6) the ‘appeal to authority’ arguments; (7) the `change is too difficult, inconvenient, impractical or whatever’ arguments; and (8) the ‘it would destroy historical authenticity and literary works’ arguments.” For being such ‘a trivial concern’ efforts against language bias have received an inexplicable amount of attention in both academia and the media, and an inordinate degree of resistance to change. Maija S. Blaubergs, “An analysis of classic arguments against changing sexist language,” Women’s Studies International Quarterly, Volume 3, Issues 2–3, 1980, Pages 135–147.

 

[2] Schlingelhoff’s exhibition project engages with longstanding and ongoing discussions about how unsettled the German language is with respect to gender politics and identity formation. Identity formations and the language for fully recognizing these identity formations is a critical horizon, a process that is unfixed and developing. With respect to this horizon and transformation, it is important to mention that Schlingelhoff is strongly opposed to any project where female identifying individuals and groups are pitted against gender variant or gender non-conforming individuals and groups. To pit these experiences against each other is to neutralize the politics of difference and ultimately adhere to the patriarchal status quo.

 

[3] There are many available resources for referencing these typographic conventions, gender- neutral language publishing guidelines, and gender diversity teaching manuals in the German context. Please see: Steinhauer, Anja and Diewald, Gabriele, “Richtig gendern: Wie Sie an- gemessen und verständlich schreiben” Berlin: Bibliographisches Institut Duden, (2017). See also: Abbt, Christine und Kammasch, Tim, “Punkt, Punkt, Komma, Strich?: Geste, Gestalt und Bedeutung philosophischer Zeichensetzung,” Edition Moderne Postmoderne, Bielefeld, (2009). For english language readers, please see: Leue, Elisabeth (2000). “Gender and Language In Germany.” Debatte: Journal of Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe. Routledge. 8(2): 163–176. There is also of course comparative research to look at in other language and publishing contexts. For instance, the term “Latinx” has been widely used to disrupt the grammatical gender binary that is inherent in the Spanish language (the gender-neutral 〈-x〉 suffix replaces the 〈-o/-a〉 ending of Latino and Latina that are typical of grammatical gender in Spanish).

 

[4] This point of order and the vote tally (as with all the numerical outcomes of the general assemblies referred to in this text) are taken directly from the official meeting minutes. The reported meeting minutes of any registered kunstverein in Germany must by law be publicly accessible information.

Events
10.05.2022, 07:00pm

For our 14th Tuesday Workshop, we invite Linienscharen to attend.

 

Tuesday, May 10, 2022, 7 pm.

 

The event will take place on the 3rd floor.

 

Linienscharen

was founded in 2012 as a platform for contemporary drawing in Stuttgart and offers a framework for exchange, lectures and presentations. Linienscharen functions as an open forum for artists from Stuttgart and the region who deal with the theme of line in their work.

In the context of the Tuesday Workshop at the Künstlerhaus,  Linienscharen would like to look back on past projects and give those who are not yet familiar with Linienscharen an insight into the platform’s activities. On the other hand, Linienscharen will present their current project “How much can a pigeon carry?” as well as the Ukrainian artist Toma Safarova, who will participate in this planned exhibition series.

Afterwards, it would be nice to get into conversation with each other – about the artistic work, the current art production, the discoveries, recollections, new beginnings …
We ask all visitors to bring 1-2 original works to this evening, a drawing, a sketchbook or an expression in another medium, which deals with the theme of the line.

Tuesday Workshop

 

With the Tuesday Workshop, the Künstlerhaus invites artists or collectives to talk about their working methods, backgrounds and approaches. We want to establish a platform for more intensive exchange on artistic practice and thus network, show solidarity and strengthen each other.
The series is aimed at all members of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, artists from Stuttgart and the surrounding area, or those passing through, all art mediators, curators, cultural workers, etc. and is open to everyone!

Choose cake display position based on the sun. You wouldn’t want to put your cake table on the sunny side of your tent.
Choose a lighter colour for your cake.
Use a glass cover if your cake is able to fit inside one.
Indoors, the venue should definitely have ample air conditioning.
Consider asking your cake designer about inserting some faux tiers.
Talk to your cake designer and/or wedding planner.

 

The three-day exhibition “How to protect your wedding cake” by Lennart Cleemann, Lena Meinhardt, Sophia Sadzakov and Eva Dörr is an invitation to stroll – to haptic, audio-visual dreaming. To detach oneself from the ground, via the wind, the rocking, the lullaby, via utopia to the supposedly light emptiness.

26.04.2022, 07:00pm

For our 13th Tuesday Workshop we invite Matthias Megyeri.

 

Tuesday, April 26, 2022, 7 p.m.

The event will take place on the 4th floor in the Künstlerhaus.

 

Matthias Megyeri

was a studio fellow from 2010 to 2013 and a member of the advisory board at the Künstlerhaus for 10 years.
Matthias Megyeri is an artist and designer.

His work is based on a conceptual approach that aims to be understood as a contribution to the discussion of socially relevant issues – and to have an impact on them. Since 2003, he has been working continuously on an artistic research project on the subject of security in public spaces. More than 140,000 snapshots are now part of his “Living Archive,” which he uses to think visually on a project-by-project basis in his artistic practice. Using the psychological function of objects is one of the strategies with which he succeeds in placing his works in everyday life. In an art-in-architecture commission for the headquarters of a bank in Manhattan, for example, he was asked to design three hundred street bollards. For this, he used the functional aspect of the bollards to simultaneously refer to the question of the proportionality of security measures and their psychological effect.”

 

Matthias Megyeri has Hungarian roots and was born in Stuttgart in 1973. He has lived and worked mainly in Stuttgart since his fellowship at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2008/09.

Tuesday Workshop

The Künstlerhaus invites an artist or a collective—meaning any artists or cultural workers from any field or discipline—to talk about their working methods as well as their backgrounds and approaches. We want to establish a platform for a more in-depth interaction with regard to artistic practice, and in doing so to create a network, show solidarity, and mutually strengthen one other.

The series is aimed at all members of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, artists either living in Stuttgart and the surrounding area or just traveling through, all cultural workers, art mediators, curators, etc., and is open to everyone!

Hermann Pflüger will present his project LadeCA View. This is a tool under development to help with the reception and organization of image sets.
Furthermore there will be an exchange about the last general meeting. An essential point here is the name change and how it should be continued from the perspective of the Fourth Organ.
In addition, it is to be concretized what can happen in the context of Anike Joyce Sadiq’s exhibition, which will open in May – also beyond the monthly meetings.

 

 

About the Fourth Organ

 

At the general meeting on March 25, 2021, the members collectively voted to meet regularly as an association from now on.

 

These meetings are intended to establish a space for understanding between the membership and the  Board. A sounding board for initiatives, critiques, and visions, a space for discourse between artistic and institutional practice, and possibly a step towards making the oft-cited hive hum a few decibels louder.

 

These regular meetings are organized by the advisory board of the Künstlerhaus. Questions or suggestions are welcome to be sent in advance to the Advisory Board at beirat@kuenstlerhaus.de.

 

These meetings are open to all members and those who would like to become members.

“To me it is more than ever clear that there is some quite surprising contradiction in the situation in which I find myself. I, too, have heard rumors about the value of my contributions to groups; I have done my best to find out just in what respects my contribution was so remarkable, but have failed to elicit any information. I can, therefore, easily sympathize with the group, who feel that they are entitled to expect something different to what, in fact, they are getting.”

 

— WR Bion, Experiences in Groups, 1948

 

A workshop in the form of a process group, in which members will, in various ways, have opportunities for “learning from experience”, as proposed by British psychoanalyst Wilfred Bion (1897-1979) whose writings on group phenomena and intra-group authority dynamics orient both Andrea Fraser’s new video work This meeting is being recorded and this event in Stuttgart. The workshop is co-directed by Alex Davidson and Jamie Stevens.

Alba Frenzel

has been a studio fellow at the Künstlerhaus since 2020.

 

She describes her artistic practice thus:
My project is a large-scale research in which the liverwurst tree is dealt with as if it were art, or with art as if it were a liverwurst tree. The qualities of the tree that can be rethought to the qualities of art are selected. In this way, art grounds itself and we get to know the liverwurst tree.”

 

“I am working on a format between studio and exhibition, in which I am active and present as an artist with photography, sculpture, text, text images, with sung and spoken quotations that I encounter in the course of the research, performative elements, readings and lectures.

„ABOUT:BLANK“

30 min, Documentary HD, German with English subtitles
By Julian Bogenfeld

 

The movie “About:Blank” shows insights of an art happening that took place in the premises of the LAF (Leerstand als Freiraum e.V.) Pforzheim in May 2018: A group of artists lives and works for 3 days in an empty commercial space, an old shop with large windows, opposite the city’s town hall. The luggage is limited to one piece per person, for the artistic work on site. The tight time frame and the clear definition of the place are meant to stimulate artistic exchange. The interdisciplinarity and openness of the format promises unexpected results.  The film shows images from a time before Corona and recalls freedoms of art that were not given in the past months.

Direction and production: Julian Bogenfeld
Duration 30 min, German with English subtitles

Andrea Fraser
Exhibition
25.09.2021–03.04.2022
Opening Reception:
Sat, 25.09.2021
07:00pm

 

Since the 1980s, Andrea Fraser has achieved renown for work that interrogates social and psychological structures with incisive analysis, humor, and pathos. While Fraser’s work often is associated with critical investigations of art institutions, her performances since the mid-2000s have turned toward examining the intersections between sociopolitical and psychological structures as these produce and reproduce individual and group identity as well as social systems. Fraser’s solo exhibition at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart brings this examination into focus with three performance-based video installations: Projection (2008), Men on the Line: Men Committed to Feminism, KPFK, 1972 (2012/2014), and her major new work, This meeting is being recorded (2021), a ninety-eight-minute video exploring the processes and formation of race, gender, and age within an intergenerational group of seven self-identified white women.

 

While they do not comprise a formal trilogy, ProjectionMen on the Line, and This meeting is being recorded are clearly linked by process, method, and formal strategy. All three works build on the multivoice performance practice Fraser has developed since the early 1990s. All three are shot against black backdrops and projected life-size to affect the experience of being in the same room as the performer. All three are performed directly to the camera to include the viewer in the dialogue. All three are based on recordings of forms of dialogue with high emotional stakes that are usually very private but which Fraser brings into the public realm. And all three are informed by Fraser’s understanding of performance as a practice of capturing and framing the processes of internalization and projection, incorporation and enactment through which the social and the psychological intersect in the production and reproduction of social identity, groups, and institutions. Combining rigorous investigation and intimate self-exposure, Fraser explores how artistic, intellectual, and political positions are driven by emotional needs and how psychological forces both shape and are shaped by social and political structures.

 

This meeting is being recorded: Andrea Fraser is organized by curator Rhea Anastas and Eric Golo Stone, artistic director of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.

 

Full exhibition text may be read in the pamphlet above.

 

The video works in the exhibition will be shown in English only. However, the performance scripts of Projection and Men on the Line can be viewed in English and German on request in the galleries.

 

Please note that proof of recovery, negative testing or full vaccination is required to visit the exhibition and all related events. We look forward to your visit!

Daily: round table from 6 pm at the Künstlerhaus – performances in the urban space – exhibition

 

Exactly 40 years ago, from September 01 to 30, 1981, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, under the direction of Ulrich Bernhardt, invited 57 local and 19 international artists to the artistic group project KONZIL. Every evening, questions about cooperation, artistic exchange, content-related, political, formal and social aspects of ephemeral and performance art were discussed at a 40-square-meter table. The project was complemented by actions and events in the urban space. Out of the KONZIL, the artist Boris Nieslony developed the world’s first performance art archive in 1981, “Die Schwarze Lade” (Black Kit).

 

40 years later, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart brings KONZIL back to Stuttgart and builds a bridge to current topics, debates and discourses. In the course of a two-week event, the historical KONZIL will be linked in the form of an archival exhibition with a performance program and daily discussion rounds.

 

Nine artists were selected through an open call to present performances in Stuttgart’s urban space. Joannie Baumgärtner, Theo Dietz, Justyna Koeke, Paul Kramer, Caro Krebietke, Matthias Megyeri, Ursula Scherrer and Başak Tuna & Matteo Locci will perform at different locations in Stuttgart such as the observatory, the Rosensteingarten or at the Neckar river. Following the performances, we invite every evening from 6 pm to a discussion with changing guests and a joint meal at the Künstlerhaus.

 

All evening events will take place on the 4th floor of the Künstlerhaus, where the exhibition with historical material from the Black Kit archive of Boris Nieslony can also be seen. Documents, photographs, posters, and video footage, including those of artists who were active at the Künstlerhaus and in Stuttgart in 1981, provide insight into the significance of the archive and place the current performances in a historical context.

 

The exhibition Permanente Performance – 40 Jahre Konzil is open from Aug 31 to Sept 12, 2021, Tuesday through Sunday from 2 to 6 pm.

Theo Dietz

How to build fishing rods
Place: Künstlerhaus courtyard
Time: 4 pm

 

A lecture about so called miscast hooks, which can be handy for fishing in garbage containers, and how to build them. Waste separation becomes an artistic action and attitude.

 

In his cross-media projects Theo Dietz deals with places in their social, material and political dimensions and opposes them with his own post-ironic utopian spaces. He has been involved with performances at the 15th Istanbul Biennial and

Manifesta11, among others. In addition to his artistic activities, Dietz works as a garbage collector.

 

Table talk from 6 pm in the Künstlerhaus

Guest: Armin Chodzinski

 

Armin Chodzinski negotiates the network of relationships between art and business in performances, lectures and exhibitions. His practice moves between mediation, self-experimentation and research, which he develops further in theaters and exhibition spaces as well as on radio and television.

Caro Krebietke

MISSING!
Location: Main entrance Rosenstein Castle, Stuttgart Museum of Natural History, Rosenstein 1, 70191 Stuttgart, Germany.
Time: 3 to 5 pm

 

The dramatic decline of insect diversity in southern Germany is the theme of the performance MISSING! Animals that have accompanied us through many centuries are disappearing almost unnoticed, in recent years at an alarming rate.
MISSING! is a cooperation with the Natural History Museum Stuttgart.

 

Caro Krebietke finds the themes of her projects in dialogue with the environment. Traces, stories and connections are the starting points of her performative interventions. Everyday places are thus transformed into scenes of special events. There is almost always a reference to historical or current political facts.

Table talk from 6 pm in the Künstlerhaus
Guests: Bureau Baubotanik

Bureau Baubotanik stands for the integration of the life processes of our plant environment into architecture. In 2017, the Bureau took over the artistic direction of the “Theatre of the Long Now,” which promises to put on a natural theater performance lasting at least 100 years on a brownfield site in Stuttgart.

Song Cycle 150
Live Studio Recording Box Recording
Location: Audiowerkstatt, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart
Time: 3 to 6 pm

 

Paul Kramer follows up with a live recording of Song Cycle No. 150, his archive of self-performed musical fragments recorded in one sitting – without notes, without lyrics. A work on the personal and collective earworms, besides performing all kinds of music and non-music (ringtones, animal sounds, machine sounds), means researching titles and its failure in the form of the “mystery tracks”. In addition to the live recording in the Künstlerhaus studio recording box, the audience will be given the opportunity to listen to the “Mystery Tracks” (i.e., the ones Paul Kramer doesn’t know), and to identify them, both via listening stations and online via Sound Cloud.

Peter Hauer

The chair without qualities
Performance Workshop
Location: Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and in the urban space
Time: 16:30
No special previous knowledge or skills are necessary. Registration by e-mail at info@kuenstlerhaus.de

 

The workshop is about the problem of domain dependency in relation to the body, movement and environment. The problem of domain dependence describes the phenomenon that we perceive things exclusively based on certain assumptions about their properties or contexts, and thus become blind to a variety of other possibilities. These things can be objects, place or time, but also actions themselves, or a social context. We will look at how one can embody different strategies to deal with this problem.

 

In his work, Peter Hauer deals with movement in the broadest sense. From the body as a tool and workshop of perception, expression and function, to movement as a medium of culture and knowledge production. With his interdisciplinary approach he develops new perspectives and connects what supposedly does not fit together.

 

Table talk from 6 pm in the Künstlerhaus
Guest: Olav Westphalen

 

Olav Westphalen is a German-American artist in whose work the expressive forms of play, entertainment and cartoons play a central role. His activities aim to highlight cultural blind spots and hypocrisies in his immediate social and cultural environments.

Justyna Koeke

City beautification measures
Meeting place: Schiffmann fountain drinking fountain, Badstraße 31D, 70372 Stuttgart, Germany
Time: 3:00 pm
Registration by e-mail at info@kuenstlerhaus.de

 

Justyna Koeke seeks out supposedly inhospitable places in Stuttgart, with found and collected plastic waste she builds vases with the participants and fills them with water and flowers from the surrounding area. This intervention of “sprucing up” is meant to remind us of the complexity of dealing with progress and the preservation of nature.

 

As an artist, Justyna Koeke seeks above all the contact between art and reality. For this reason, she often shifts her performative works to public spaces, but this also means leaving the comfort zone of the trained and tamed art audience to create immediate and intimate moments. Many of her self-initiated projects are at the interface with political activism – it is in this area in particular that art becomes approachable, and here the confrontation with various actors is essential.
In terms of content, her work deals with feminist and socio-political issues: women’s rights, citizen participation, sustainability, self-determination and urbanity play a crucial role in many of my works.

Table talk from 6 pm at the Künstlerhaus
Guests: Beria Altinoluk, Elmar Mellert

 

Beria Altinoluk and Elmar Mellert turn Stuttgart bulky waste finds into spontaneous interventions in urban space.
Beria Altinoluk studied media philosophy and art science at the University of Design Karlsruhe. Elmar Mellert is a member of the electronic music group Rework in addition to his work as a DJ.

Matthias Megyeri

Inner Peace, Blowball, 77/2021
Location: Königstraße 5 (height Marstallstr.), “Pusteblume-Brunnen” (B. Woodward, G. Behnisch, 1977), 70173 Stuttgart
Time: 2 to 5 pm (duration 180 minutes)

 

Six Security Service Members (SDM’s) hired by the artist will position themselves for 180 minutes, equidistant from each other, with their backs to the fountain. No more than 3 of the 6 SDM’s sit on the ring of shell limestone at any one time during the period.

 

Conceptual artist Matthias Megyeri’s practice explores the cultural, social and psychological aspects of the visual appearance of protection and safety. The works in his Sweet Dreams Security® series, for example, combine our need for security with our simultaneous desire for harmony and beauty. Thus, boundaries such as fences, metal grates, padlocks, barbed wire, and chains become endearing objects. Megyeri has been realizing site-specific art on buildings as well as in public spaces internationally for 20 years. His installations always relate to the site-specific context in which they operate.

Ursula Scherrer

Can you see me
Meeting place: Schillerplatz, Am Fruchtkasten 3, 70173 Stuttgart, Germany
Time: 3 pm
Meeting point: Landtag, Konrad-Adenauer-Straße 3, 70173 Stuttgart
Time: 4:30 pm

 

We try to be seen by making ourselves heard.
We try to make ourselves heard by being seen.
What at first seems like a game becomes a desperate attempt to be heard, to be seen.

 

The poetic quality of Ursula Scherrer’s work draws the viewer into being and lets them sink into their own stories. Ursula Scherrer’s path began with dance and choreography and led on to photography, video, text, mixed media, performance art. She was born in Switzerland in 1966 and lived in New York from 1988 to 2019.

Table talk from 6 pm at the Künstlerhaus
Guests: Ulrich Bernhardt, Heidemarie von Wedel

 

Ulrich Bernhardt, artist and former director of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, has been working with film and video, video and spatial installations, and space-time phenomena in photography since 1973. His works include panoramas, photo sequences and film friezes, light kinetic objects and sculptures.

 

Heidemarie von Wedel, artist and publisher, sneaks her photographs into everyday life. She produces a constantly growing archive of images whose goal is never the single image, the presence of an iconic panel, but rather an associative noise in the flow of individual moments of what is seen, experienced, hashed.

 

Heidemarie von Wedel and Ulrich Bernhardt talk about open work situations and collaborations.

A walk through the city with your head in the clouds, equipped with 90-degree-angle mirror glasses. Cloud watching is not looking for symbols or spiritual divination. For now, we enjoy not making a decision, letting the clouds drift over our view like disillusioned aeromancers.

 

Tuna-Locci is an artist duo exploring the visible and invisible forms of relationship art. Başak Tuna is a critical spatial artist from Turkey whose work speculates on the ontology of networks and power relations.
Matteo Locci is a multimedia artist with an architectural background. He conducts most of his research with and thanks to the Roman interdisciplinary collective ATI suffix.

Reconsidering Institutional Conduct (Almost Everything Still Remains to be Done) is a two-day program at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart that convenes a group of artists to conceptualize and draft provisions for a legally enforceable code of conduct. Drawing from different critical perspectives, this group will generate specific considerations and stipulations that will directly inform an internal process currently underway by the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart’s governing bodies to implement the institution’s first ever code of conduct.

 

This program examines how an art institution governs its own immediate social and workplace conditions, directly addressing the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart as a responsive institutional case study, while also supporting experiential research into shared policy and collaborative governance. Additionally, by emphasizing artists as primary contributors to institutional policy-making, this program challenges the settled expectation that artists’ work amounts to purely content-related outcomes. Indeed, this process of generating a code of conduct seeks to recognize the extent to which artists define the actual lived relations and working conditions that produce and distribute their art.

 

Once fully implemented, this code of conduct aims to be both an internal and outward facing policy—offering everyday considerations that are specific to the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, as well as reproducible models of institutional conduct that challenge the exploitative, discriminatory, and dispossessive practices so prevalent in the art sector at large. It is well known that the Kunstverein system in Germany is particularly conducive to establishing legal structures that regulate artistic production, yet significant work remains to be done in terms of how these legal structures ensure a field of artistic production that is equitable, inclusive, and truly diverse. While referring to existing legal protections for workers and constituents, a code of conduct is intended to go much further, imposing requirements and providing means of recourse that are more exacting than those mandated by law. Collective reconsiderations of what constitutes these exacting principles and effects is precisely what this program offers space for.

 

Reconsidering Institutional Conduct (Almost Everything Still Remains to be Done) brings together an international group of distinct artists and cultural practitioners including Heba Y. Amin, Grayson Earle, Irena Haiduk, Clara Sukyoung Jo, Sandrine Micossé-Aikins, Anike Joyce Sadiq, Anna Schiefer, Bea Schlingelhoff, Ülkü Süngün, and Stefan Wäldele. In order for this group process to generate a practicable code of conduct, the invited practitioners will directly advise and work with representatives of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart—the majority of whom are practicing artists—including individuals from the Board of Directors, Artist Advisory Council, and Membership Association. This two-day program of directed group work and discussion is open to the general public, offering a culture of transparency around behind-the-scenes work that is typically conducted in closed-door session. Please note however, that capacity will be regulated in keeping with COVID-19 public health requirements. The program will be conducted in English language, with German translation available on request.

 

Schedule:

*All session groups are comprised of the invited artists. Additional contributors are noted in each session description. The general public is invited to attend all sessions, but will be asked to contribute with questions and comments only in the sessions noted as “open discussion.”

News
01.07.2021
A Project of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart

The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is looking for artistic positions in the field of performance art for the project “Permanente Performance – 40 Jahre Konzil”. Artists and artist collectives are invited to submit concepts for performances at locations they define themselves in Stuttgart’s urban space. The choice of locations is up to the artists. However, the Künstlerhaus offers support in finding a suitable location.
The selection of the participating artists for the period from August 30 to September 12 will be made by a jury consisting of members of the board and advisory board of the Künstlerhaus.

 

Project period: August 30 to September 12, 2021
Application deadline: July 18, 2021
Fee: 1.000 EUR
Possible transport, material and travel costs cannot be reimbursed.
Documents to be submitted: application form, project description (max. 2 pages), portfolio and CV.
Please send the application documents in one pdf (max. 10 MB) by e-mail to info@kuenstlerhaus.de. Applications not submitted by the deadline or applications with incomplete documents will unfortunately not be considered.

 

Background

 

Exactly 40 years ago, from September 01 to September 30 1981, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, under the direction of Ulrich Bernhardt, invited 57 local and 19 international artists to participate in the artistic group project KONZIL. In this project, questions about cooperation, artistic exchange and thematic aspects of ephemeral and performance art were discussed daily at 6 p.m. at a 40-square-meter table. The project was complemented by actions and events in the urban space. Out of the project, artist Boris Nieslony developed the Black Kit. The Black Kit archives the documentation of organizations, associations, artist-run spaces and some of the most important international projects in the field of performance since 1975. It refers to about 3800 artists, contains photographs, individual performance relics and records.

40 years later, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart will bring KONZIL back to Stuttgart and into the present, building bridges to current issues, debates and discourses. Over a two-week period, the historical council will be linked in the form of an archival exhibition with a performance program.

 

For the historical processing, Boris Nieslony’s Black Kit Archive will provide the Künstlerhaus with documents, photographs, posters and video material of artists who were active in the Künstlerhaus and in Stuttgart in 1981. In parallel, the Künstlerhaus invites artists and artists’ collectives to present performances in Stuttgart’s urban space – from Stuttgart West to Bad Cannstatt, from Zuffenhausen to Wangen – over a period of fourteen days.
Following these performances, several panels will be held at the Künstlerhaus, inviting participants to exchange ideas, engage in discourse, and work together.

ongoing work on the collective drawing

 

daily from 10-18 o’clock
Satellite Stuttgart, Königstraße 22, 70173 Stuttgart

 

In fall 2012 Linienscharen was founded, a platform for contemporary drawing in Stuttgart. Linienscharen aims to keep the discourse on drawing in Stuttgart alive and provide a framework for exchange, lectures and presentations on the subject. Linienscharen functions as an open forum for artists from Stuttgart and the region whose work deals with drawing or the theme of line in another medium.

 

The satellite project Funkenflug is designed as an open-ended process that uses the space in Königstraße as a place for concentrated drawing over a period of twelve days. 47 artists of the Linienscharen will be active in the project space in groups of two, one after the other, and will react to the spatial conditions of the space and the surrounding urban space with drawings throughout the duration of the project and continue a dialogue with the already existing artistic interventions.

SATELLIT STUTTGART is an association of artists in cooperation with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and supported by the Wüstenrot Foundation.

 

The current situation brings many challenges for solo independent artists, designers and cultural workers. Satellit Stuttgart is intended to be a platform through which independent projects now become visible. We want to strengthen our local network and generate far-reaching, interdisciplinary dialogues.

 

With Satellit Stuttgart we create a new format of a temporary, inner-city art space. We invite professional solo artists, designers and collectives from Stuttgart and the surrounding area.

 

For 3 months (April-July), a vacant store space in Stuttgart will become a temporary studio, exhibition and gallery space, an intervention and experimentation area for cultural workers from various disciplines.

 

The project grants will be awarded to one artist (or artist group/collective) for two weeks (14 days) at a time.

 

Project management: Karima Klasen, in cooperation with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.

Our studio fellow Lennart Cleemann shows his installation Schaukel mit Fischen for the first time in the project space Lagune.

 

Summer exhibition! Lennart Cleemann (*1990) shows in the Lagune for the first time his installation Schaukel mit Fischen, the attempt of an abstract reproduction of his studio atmosphere. Many objects occupy the space, overlapping spatially, visually and refusing their decoupled observation. An important theme of Cleemann’s work is the exploration of the idea of home. Space and object serve as sculptural communicators of interpersonal relationships.

Home in an Eggshell

 

June 9 until June 23 2021

 

“Home” (eng.), in German: Zuhause, Heim, Heimat, Heimstätte.

In times of the Corona pandemic, the term “home” takes on a completely new and formative meaning worldwide. Due to isolation, all parts of society are thrown back on that personal place that functions as a “life-location” and is closely linked to the identity of the respective people.

 

But is it so simple to define “home” as protective, four walls, or is this concept and its associated meanings far more complex and spongy than can be broken down to a simple formula?

The debate around this term is also changing with people coming to Germany from other countries and living here. It is of central social importance to enter into a new dialogue at this point and to discuss and negotiate deadlocked and described concepts again.

 

Within the framework of art and culture, an impulse can be given for this. We have dedicated our work as a group of artists to this area, since this topic plays its own special role for all of us in the artistic or private sphere.

 

Dates:

Saturday, June 12 2021, 11am–7.30pm – Opening
All artists will be present.

 

Sunday, June 13 2021, 3.30pm–7.30pm

Tuesday Workshop

From October 2020, artists and other cultural workers will meet every second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart to present their artistic practice, exchange and discuss ideas, and get to know each other better.

The Künstlerhaus invites an artist or a collective—meaning any artists or cultural workers from any field or discipline—to talk about their working methods as well as their backgrounds and approaches. We want to establish a platform for a more in-depth interaction with regard to artistic practice, and in doing so to create a network, show solidarity, and mutually strengthen one other.

The series is aimed at all members of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, artists either living in Stuttgart and the surrounding area or just traveling through, all cultural workers, art mediators, curators, etc., and is open to everyone!

SATELLIT STUTTGART is an association of artists in cooperation with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and supported by the Wüstenrot Foundation.

 

The current situation brings many challenges for solo independent artists, designers and cultural workers. Satellit Stuttgart is intended to be a platform through which independent projects now become visible. We want to strengthen our local network and generate far-reaching, interdisciplinary dialogues.

 

With Satellit Stuttgart we create a new format of a temporary, inner-city art space. We invite professional solo artists, designers and collectives from Stuttgart and the surrounding area.

 

For 3 months (April-July), a vacant store space in Stuttgart will become a temporary studio, exhibition and gallery space, an intervention and experimentation area for cultural workers from various disciplines.

 

The project grants will be awarded to one artist (or artist group/collective) for two weeks (14 days) at a time.

 

Project management: Karima Klasen, in cooperation with the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.

Talk
27.04.2021, 07:00pm

Please join us for a discussion with the artist Eva Barto. Organized in conjunction with her current exhibitions at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and Kunstverein Nürnberg.

 

April 27 2021, 7pm / 19.00

 

Presented online live-streamed https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89943878326

 

Contributing to the discussion will be Milan Ther (Director, Kunstverein Nürnberg), and Eric Golo Stone (Artistic Director, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart).

 

Eva Barto’s exhibition at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart reconsiders the legal-economic infrastructure by which financial giving is managed in the art sector. Rather than solely reflect on the transactional structures of monetary gifts, financial support, and philanthropy at large, Barto’s exhibition actualizes a specific set of grantor-grantee, donor-donee, and sponsor-sponsee relations. The transactional order for these relations and effects are governed through a system of distinct contractual agreements, which the artist conceptualized and implemented within the material and temporal dimensions of her exhibition. For Barto, to produce disclosures on financial giving and reciprocal compensation in the field of art today is to challenge the idealization of independence by emphasizing the messy, enmeshed, and consequential dependencies that define working relations and conditions.

 

 

Please note: Due to public health requirements, the exhibition galleries at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart remain closed until further notice.

 

While we eagerly look forward to welcoming you when the exhibition space may safely reopen, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart as an organization recognizes its responsibility towards visitors and staff in making every effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.

 

Radical care is not solely a declarative position or something to be reflected on thematically—spaces for art must also of course actualize radically empathetic care work at the policy level. We continue to organize behind-the-scenes so that when we can reopen, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart will implement accessibility policies that are inclusive of immunocompromised and/or high-risk people.

New Board of Directors at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart
News
16.04.2021

On March 25th, 2021 the Members of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart elected a new advisory committee and board of directors. The general members assembly – originally scheduled for 2020 – was postponed due to the pandemic. Eventually it was decided to hold the meeting online. Nevertheless, the member’s participation was at a record high. The newly elect members of the advisory committee are: Yvette Hoffmann, Björn Kühn, Florian Model, Monika Nuber, Jasmin Schädler and Damaris Wurster. The board of directors consists of: Ania Corcilius (president), Anna Schiefer (vice president) and Daniel Niccoli (treasurer).

 

Ania Corcilius, artist and curator, brings her experience on the boards of the Hamburger Kunstverein, nGbK Berlin, and San Francisco’s Creative Arts Charter School to the Künstlerhaus. In Stuttgart, Ania has been teaching at Merz-Akademie and is engaged in the group “Stadtlücken”, who, up until recently, were residents at the studio program at Künstlerhaus.

 

Anna Schiefer, artist and art educator, is a graduate of ABK Stuttgart, founding member of the collective “Publishing House for Handbooks“, and also a former fellow in the Künstlerhaus‘ studio program. Due to her numerous residencies and research activities at artistic and academic institutions, Anna draws from a broad network, both locally and internationally.

 

Daniel Niccoli, IT-architect und self-employed IT-advisor, came to the Künstlerhaus through his participation in various workshop classes. Besides his entrepreneurial experience, he will bring to the board a strong interest in forms of participation and communication processes. 

 

Together with the advisory committee the board of directors emphasizes the importance of the Künstlerhaus as a Stuttgart art institution, which is among the leading non-profit galleries contributing to the international contemporary art discourse. At the same time the board seeks to encourage a close dialog between the curated exhibition program and local artists as well as the community. The primary goal is to strengthen the Künstlerhaus as a place for critical artistic debates on the highest level and make it visible and available for the public in Stuttgart.

Tuesday Workshop

From October 2020, artists and other cultural workers will meet every second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart to present their artistic practice, exchange and discuss ideas, and get to know each other better.

The Künstlerhaus invites an artist or a collective—meaning any artists or cultural workers from any field or discipline—to talk about their working methods as well as their backgrounds and approaches. We want to establish a platform for a more in-depth interaction with regard to artistic practice, and in doing so to create a network, show solidarity, and mutually strengthen one other.

The series is aimed at all members of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, artists either living in Stuttgart and the surrounding area or just traveling through, all cultural workers, art mediators, curators, etc., and is open to everyone!

The new format was initiated by Ronald Kolb and is supported by the Künstlerhaus advisory board.
