Workshop Operation Frieda
by Femrep e.V.
In this one day workshop we are planning various kinds of guerilla interventions in different cultural and art institutions in Hamburg. Thereby pointing at the fact that FLTI*s are still underrepresented in exhibitions, publications, galleries, theatre stages, music festivals and art fairs. Together we want to create various formats that draw attention to this fact as well as gaining spaces and talking about solidarity and visibility in the artistic sphere.
Lecture with Workshop All your data belongs to us
In this lecture we want to inform about the extensive methods of data acquisition and propose implementable contra-methods. Outlook and questions: How can we be sensible towards these deficits and how can they be made visible through artistic practice?
Using every day devices (such as smartphones etc.) we show how easy it is to find and collect data. We will then contextualize the found data and make their financial value visible. Afterwards we will set up modifications to prevent future data leaks on the private smartphones.
Workshop Social Sampling
by BOOTY & SLEEPY
Sampling as a cultural technique has been researched plentily. But what about their social aspects of sampling? One who discovers new music, often also finds new people. In the age of global sampling nostalgia and curiosity collide – on dance floors or in one single music piece, new perspectives open up. Nothing less than the all-encompassing world peace should be achieved in this workshop. Be part of a social sampling process with Booty Carrell alias Sebastian Reier vinyl archeologist, DJ, record sales assistant, radio moderator and Sleepwalker alias Marc Wichmann, Rapper and Hip Hop producer from Hamburg.
Discussion about financing cultural work
Workshop How to create a space?
by Erkka Luutonen
Culture Center Sähinä’s founding member and the director Erkka Luutonen from Finland will lead a workshop titled “How to create a space?”. The workshop will consist of a short introduction about Sähinä, why it was established and how it is kept operational. After the introduction, participants will simulate creating their own spaces in small groups, with the help of a couple basic guidelines. The Idea is to create a concept of a space within a real city (Hamburg, Helsinki, Cairo etc.). Important questions are which area or district is chosen and why, what kind of a space (real or imaginary), what is the target audience (users) and how the space is funded (and many others). In the end of the workshop we will discuss the spaces created, and their potential in real life.
Asematila – cultural space at railway station Helsinki
Venla Helenius and Sanna Ritvanen will introduce Asematila, a cultural space located in the old waiting hall of Huopalahti railway station, which has been working now for two years, offering free work- and exhibition space for local and international artists. The presentation will offer a quick view on our values and practices of running Asematila, but also contemplation about how cultural space could be more hospitable and work as a platform for shared practices and knowledge formulation. Helenius and Ritvanen invite you to a casual conversation and dreaming session, where we will discuss what kinds of cultural spaces we we need now and in the future. What kinds of supportive structures we need now, in these times, defined by burn-outs and neo-liberal view on artistic work.
Exhibition, Installation “You found a conch” by Venla Helenius and Sanna Ritvanen
For that passing moment we misused that space, unconventionally. We made it our own, made art in a place where one usually does sports. It felt like we had stepped on a stage where our ways of seeing and experiencing, the struggling of getting rid of normative grooves, played the main role. Again, alone, I would have felt myself somehow uncomfortable, but with you it felt safe. You found a conch is an installation where the need for getting lost and loving is present. It is also traces and remnants of feminist geography and confessions of love in the form of letters. For you, for me, for us, for them and for the others.
Installation “In Other Dimensions” by Ramina Habibolla
The installation “In Other Dimensions” explores the temporary state of transcending from planet Earth into an alternative dimension.
Performance “Heul Doch II” by Luise Leschik
In this interactive performance Luise Leschik is playing with the notion of self in the social media age. As well as sharing what is not supposed to be shared.
