Talk in Bremen


On May 4th I’ll give a presentation of my work at the symposium ‘Artists as Independent Publishers’ at the Weserburg museum in Bremen. The symposium is free to attend.

Artists as Independent Publishers is a teaching project, an international cooperation, an exhibition cycle and a symposium aiming to explore tendencies and opportunities in present-day art as well as help actively shape them.

The project was initiated by Katrin von Maltzahn and Anna Lena von Helldorff from the University of the Arts in Bremen and takes place from early 2015 to the end of 2016 in cooperation with four other European art universities – the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Royal College of Art, London, Bergen Academy of Art and Design and the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. In this context, all of the partner universities have worked individually on the topics of artists’ books and “publishing as artistic practice”.

As of May 2016 the project will lead to joint exhibitions in Bremen, Bergen, Vienna, Stockholm and London, kicked off by a symposium as well as an exhibition in collaboration with the Centre for Artists’ Publications in the Museum Weserburg in Bremen.

The exhibition will be opened on 3 May, at 7 pm, showing the works and projects of the participating countries. Simultaneously, various guests will discuss the subject of publishing from a contemporary perspective during a public symposium.

Thuesday May 3rd 2016, 13:30 – 18:00
