What role can venues, organisations and institutions play to enable new forms of social interaction beyond presenting cultural events? Pandemics are changing the use of existing venues, and, given the possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic will not be the last of its kind, questions arise for the future of our venues.

Cultural institutions present art. And they also have a broad spectrum of additional “capital" that they can contribute to the contemporary concerns of a community: physically, through space, architecture and infrastructure; socially, through employees with ideas and contacts; politically, through relationships with cultural policy and cultural administration; and, last but not least, creative capital through a pronounced cultural and artistic sensibility. The special potential of cultural institutions therefore lies in the opening up cultural, non-commercially defined free spaces and meeting places for different social milieus. How can this be tapped and used?

We would like to facilitate a discussion, with Ece Pazarbasi, Andrea Goetzke and Matthias Mohr, about how the focus of an art institution might develop in the future, how our institutions could potentially appear, and how they could be implemented in connection with the reorientation of municipal and regional cultural development planning.

Moderator: Kristoffer Cornils

  • Ece Pazarbaşı works and walks on the merged borderline of curatorial practice and artistic research as her main profession. Her curatorial and artistic practice revolves around interdisciplinary crossovers which results in alternative formats of education. With a special interest in the multi-layered approach, she has realised many projects over the issues of sound, urbanism, digital and analogue public space, participatory art, food and the technology of the human body. Since 2005 she works on the alternative formats of education. Since 2019, she is running Field Kitchen Academy, an interdisciplinary educational residency program, that aims at transcending the existing borders between research and practice; beyond forms and formats with innovative experimental tools and experiences on holistic knowing and thinking. In 2014, she has established Berlin Art Grant Clinic, a support structure for artists, curators, NGOs and creative minds for self-sustainability.

    Her curatorial experiences include “Cabinet of the Unknown” exhibition Werkbundarchiv - Museum der Dinge (2017); “Bank Blank” main exhibition of 48 hrs Neukölln (2018); “Memory Plates” within the frame of Festival of Future Nows at Hamburger Bahnhof (2017); “Muscle Memory” Kunstraum Bethanien/ Kreuzberg (2017); “12/12” and “Turkish Art Nice and Simple” exhibitions at Tanas Berlin (2011-2012) together with René Block. She was the assistant curator of the 52nd Venice Biennial Turkish Pavilion (2007).

    She worked with New Museum - New York for Ideas City: Istanbul (2012) as project coordinator and in 2009-2010 she worked as the Consultant and Program Specialist of Visual Arts for Turkey at the Strategic Planning and Development Department for Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage, UAE.

    In 2016, she has received Kulturstiftung des Bundes’ 18-month special stipend for International Curators and she was privileged to be awarded a research grant from Olafur Eliasson’s Institution for Spatial Experiments (IFREX) in 2013.

    Among her artistic positions are her work in Neue National Galerie Berlin Festival of Future Nows within in the scope of "Sticks and Stones" an intervention by David Chipperfield (2014); TELL ME WHAT YOU EAT and I tell you where you live a project at Wilhelm Hack Museum, Ludwigshafen (2014).

  • Andrea Goetzke works as a curator and cultural producer in Berlin. Through discourse, music and radio, she engages with interdisciplinary cultural and social issues, and is interested in creating hospitable spaces for inspiration and encounter. She recently co-created a program on COLLECTIVE PRACTICES at ACUD and currently organizes the Picnic FM series of music in the park. For ten years she organized the Torstraßenfestival and is co-founder of Music Pool Berlin. She has worked as a freelance curator, organizer, and presenter with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Ableton Loop, re:publica, and the Goethe Institute, among others. She shares musical discoveries on her radio show at ByteFM.
  • Matthias Mohr is a German-Colombian curator and dramaturge. He has staged contemporary music theater at ZKM Karlsruhe, the ECLAT festival, and KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen, among others. From 2012-2014 he was part of the program team of the Ruhrtriennale and subsequently worked as dramaturg for PACT Zollverein with a focus on contemporary dance and performance. There he developed experimental transdisciplinary formats centered on the exchange between different fields of knowledge and artistic practices. His focus is particularly on making marginalized forms of knowledge visible. In 2018 Matthias Mohr took over the artistic direction of the radialsystem and continues his transdisciplinary curatorial work here.

The discussion will be held in English.
