Finissage: TERRA DIASPORA

Finissage

TERRA DIASPORA – Welten Wandeln – Changing Worlds
Ellen Akimoto, Cian Dayrit, Marianna Ignataki, Runa Ikeda, Oda Jaune, Hortensia Mi Kafchin, Thorsten Alexander Kasper, Rosa Loy, Kelechi Nwaneri, So Young Park, Thomias Radin, Dennis Scholl, Sara Umar, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, Geng Xue

curated by Nicola E. Petek & Stephan Klee

The current works by artists with roots in five continents are dedicated to the emergence of the fantastic in the everyday experience of a supposedly rationally explainable environment: Does the fantastic fundamentally question our modern view of the world? Or is and has the fantastic always been an essential component of human perception and reality? The art movements of Surrealism and Magical Realism already dealt with this tense relationship; the contemporary positions gathered in the exhibition take up these questions again, revitalising and further developing key art movements of modernism.

The team of the Kunstverein invites you to the joint closing of the international group exhibition on Friday, 12.07.24, 18:00 – 20:00.

There will be a final guided tour of the exhibition with Stephan Klee at 18:00 and then the last opportunity to ask questions and reflect together on aspects of the exhibition. We are looking forward to a relaxed, informal evening with a drink or two and look forward to seeing you there.

Art meets Literature

Reading and panel discussion as part of the exhibition TERRA DIASPORA – Welten Wandeln
Art meets literature: the novel Uprooted by Indian author Alka Saraogi

Monday, 01.07.24 at 19:00 – 21:00

Reading and discussion with the author, the translator Prof. Dr. Almuth Degener, University of Mainz, and the co-curator of the exhibition Nicola E. Petek;
Moderation: Dr. Ines Fornell, Seminar for Indology and Tibetology at the University of Göttingen;
in cooperation with the Literaturforum Indien e. V.

This new novel of contemporary Indian literature, which has just been published in a direct German translation, deals literarily with the theme of the exhibition TERRA DIASPORA – Welten Wandeln: in the world of East and West Bengal, characterized by pogroms against people of other faiths after the partition of the subcontinent at the end of British colonial rule over India, the story of Kulbhushan unfolds, who, as a refugee between home and new beginnings, remains an uprooted person and at the same time shows unexpected strengths. The author’s poetic language allows us to experience this story in all its contradictions in an emotionally moving way.

Panel Talk: TERRA DIASPORA

Panel Talk
TERRA DIASPORA – Welten Wandeln

Saturday, 15.06.24 at 17:00 – 19:00
5:00 – 5:45 pm: Guided tour through the exhibition Welten Wandeln with the curator Stephan Klee
6:00 – 7:00 pm: Panel discussion with the artist Marianna Ignataki, the artist Thomias Radin and curator Stephan Klee, moderated by Dr. phil Almut Hüfler

 

Topic

Migration as a source of the fantastic
New narratives between cultures and the new border regimes

After a guided tour through the exhibition TERRA DIASPORA – Welten Wandeln with the responsible co-curator Stephan Klee and a short break for drinks participants in the exhibition will meet to talk about the influences in their artistic narratives, be it the culture of their countries of origin, experiences during their migration or the inspirations in their new living environment.

Together with Stephan Klee, they will also discuss the limits of the universal idea of human rights in the current global refugee dynamics. Are there connections between the failure of rational, humane politics and the new emergence of „subreal“ narratives and fantastic drafts of the world?

The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Phil. Almut Hüfler from Berlin.
She is a curator, Literature Scientist and is familiar with the positions and the thematic complex, due to an ongoing collaboration with the involved protagonists and actual contention with the topics.
