On the occasion of the Bauhaus anniversary, the Werkleitz Festival 2019 will take place from May 25th to June 9th in Dessau-Roßlau. In the title model stands as a model for a future to be created and ruin as a testimony of a mostly idealized past. The aim of the festival is to locate the Bauhaus in a broader historical context. Thirteen artists are invited to this project, who dedicate themselves in Dessau from the current perspective to the poles of power model and ruin.
The exhibition snap+share gives visitors a new way to visualize — and experience — how photographs have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives. Whether through early examples of 1960s and ’70s mail art, physical piles of pictures uploaded to the Internet over a 24-hour period, or a working refrigerator that allows participatory meme-making, visitors can trace the evolution of sharing photographs.
Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, the show presents a variety of artists working in various media, from framed paper-based art to immersive installations. Some of these artists include On Kawara, Ray Johnson, Moyra Davey, Erik Kessels, Corinne Vionnet, and David Horvitz. Exploring how networks are created through the act of sending images out into the world, this exhibition reveals just how those networks have changed in the age of the Internet.

0 likes – Curatorial practice in times of post social media.
In this workshop we will look into different models of curatorial practice around art online, net.art & art on the internet. Visitors are invited to discuss a wide range of approaches from online exhibitions, to Speed Shows to latest concepts like gallery.delivery. What is the status of art on the internet? How do artists and institutions cope with the fading presence of the web? What to do with the ever growing hell of likes with no links to the web? Let’s discuss ideas and concepts! What’s your idea for curating a show?

Kunsthochschule Kassel – The New Media class is proud to present new works at panke.gallery, Berlin. The pieces range from installation, performance, screen-based and interactive works to video and film. ‘Make it fit’ refers to the restrictive cabin baggage rules of budget airlines, including their painfully meticulous control mechanisms. A lifestyle-conscious, hyper-mobile generation rattling trolleys along pavements has become the hallmark of gentrified neighborhoods in travel-hyped European capitals.
Kassel’s New Media students are using the classic travel suitcase as a constraint and metaphorical context for art production to meet the challenge of setting up a group show in Berlin in less than one day. Each work must fit into a suitcase to be transported, and setup time has to be either instant or not more than two hours. Hyper-mobile art also facilitates instant pop-up micro shows and performances in trains, in stations, and in other public spaces.
Curatorial processes often see artists selected on the basis of friendship networks or name dropping rather than actual works. How far can an artwork be ‘bent’ to make it fit an art show? An art market open secret is that paintings and sculpture that are small enough to fit in an ‘Upper Westside’ elevator have a better chance of being sold. Does it fit?
