Wie können wir Kunst machen und Ausstellen während der Pandemie? Welche Chancen ergeben sich aus einer Ausstellung im öffentlichen und digitalen Raum? Wie gehen wir mit Zweifel um und wie fühlt es sich an mit Kunst zu schlafen?
Über diese und weitere Fragen spricht Gabriel Hensche mit den Studierenden Julia Schmutz, Rebecca Thrum, Evangelia Ntouni und Clarissa Kassai, die mit ihren Arbeiten beim diesjährigen Rundgang vertreten sind.

This week, Jennifer Walshe talks to to the philosopher Timothy Morton about their thoughts on the pandemic, and how it intersects with a wide range of topics including climate change, “care wear” and John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

Tim is the Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University, in Houston, Texas, and the author of many books including Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World; Realist Magic: Objects, Ontology, Causality and most recently Being Ecological. Tim has collaborated with many artists and musicians including Olafur Eliasson, Laurie Anderson and Björk. Full disclosure: Tim and Jen collaborated on an opera called TIME TIME TIME last year.

Cancelled gigs, closed universities, stranded students – how do we keep making music in challenging times? Jennifer Walshe speaks to Andra Darzins, professor of viola at the University of Music and the Performing Arts, about the pros and cons of teaching online; Jana Luksts, a pianist and MA student who is currently stranded in NYC and meditating on what a slow-down might bring to music; and Thomas Schäfer, the director of the Internationales Musikintitut Darmstadt, who had to take the unprecedented decision to cancel this year’s Summer Courses.
