_“_The text reads me as much as I read the text.” Slavs and Tatars

A workshop with the artist Lene Morgenstern to accompany the exhibition Kirchgängerbanger at ar/ge kunst (19.05 – 28.07.2018). What is considered a text? How can we explore reading material discursively and in embodied ways? After a tour of the exhibition with curator Simone Mair, a selection of German and Italian texts by Johann Georg Hamann and Molla Nasreddin – two figures who influenced the artistic practice of Slavs and Tatars – will be deepened through a collective reading.

Opening: 01.12.2017 at 7pm

Curated by Emanuele Guidi

With the first show in Italy of the Russian artist Vladislav Shapovalov, ar/ge kunst continues to present artistic practices that deal with history and the material of which it is made up; Long-term researches that are obliquely positioned in respect to official historiography, dedicating themselves to the re-composition of facts and moments considered minor, obsolete or simply forgotten; practices that above all critically investigate the media through which the story is written and communicated, and through which it continues to reverberate in the present.
