Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b. 1985, US) is the 2022 recipient of the Schering Stiftung Award for Artistic Research. In their work, Rasheed focuses on the materiality and legibility of text, writing, and language as well as the potential of intermedial translation. They search for methods that allow us to grasp meanings anew and explore the question of how we read and how we ourselves want to be read and understood.

 

The presentation of Rasheed’s artistic work at KW Institute for Contemporary Art is their first major institutional solo exhibition in Berlin. Both the exhibition and its accompanying publication interlace with Rasheed’s methodology, which explores indexical space, revision through annotation, as well as its blurring and layering of knowledge and learning.

 

The 2022 edition of the Award for Artistic Research, which is awarded biannually to international artists by the Schering Stiftung und Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Community, is the seventh time that Schering Stiftung has collaborated with KW.
