In dizzy times we dare to perform a balancing act once again. We define the organ of balance between the prefabricated building and the farmland. Libken, a house with three entrances, like the three archways in the inner ear. The old waterworks a jelly cone, wood sheds distributed as earstones on the property, green spaces and concrete arrange themselves. The place seems in balance.
But there is a stagger to be noticed, a slight dizziness of our political-social system. Néo-libéralisme in times of permanent tipping points, togetherness lies in a slumbering loop.
As a participant in the interdisciplinary Summer Academy 2020, you will live and work for one week in the artists' residence Libken, a prefabricated building not far from Berlin in the Uckermark. The focus of the Summer Academy is interdisciplinary work. You will be accompanied by lecturers from the fields of photography, drawing and graphic design. It is about exchange, reflection and expansion of your own artistic work within the three disciplines. In addition to the practical programme, you will be given a decent meal, you can swim in the lake on your doorstep, watch films at night and enjoy a campfire. At the end of the week there will be an exhibition of the works.
All this, of course, only under observance of all necessary rules of distance and meeting.
