Session hosted by the Sommerakademie Paul Klee fellowship program with artists Johanna Bruckner, Crystal Z Campbell, Luiza Crosman, Alexandros Kyriakatos, Alexis Mitchell, Bahar Noorizadeh, Heather M. O’Brien & Jonathan Takahashi
Over the period of Summer 2017 to Spring 2019, the Sommerakademie Paul Klee Bern grants fellowships to eight artists committed to issues spelled out in the REALTY program. Having collectively pinned down some fundamental working premises, the Fellows now convene in Berlin to further elaborate the key premises, and share some core concerns with a small public. In conversation with Tirdad Zolghadr, the aim is to strategically reflect on the embeddedness of one’s practice within political, labor, and housing questions. With the point of departure being not only that contemporary art is an unregulated field par excellence. But that this precarious state of affairs produces the very cosmopolitan creative class that bolsters gentrification.
