Further dates for events in the Japanisches Palais (Staatliche
Kunstsammlungen Dresden) and at the a&o Hostels Dresden will follow.
Political debates about belonging, identity and community do not stop at the curatorial level. They require repeated confrontations with the actions (or omissions) of hosting. The roles of hosts and guests are renegotiated, hierarchical structures of hospitality come up for discussion, and furthermore the current pandemic requires a rethinking of hospitable gestures.
For the Hospitality-Project of the masters programme Cultures of the Curatorial
at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig (HGB), the following works have been created over the past months in cooperation with the Japanischen Palais Dresden
, Avantgarden Dresden
, GRASSI Museum für Völkerkunde zu Leipzig
and the a&o Hostels Dresden
. Due to the current pandemic and resulting closure of museums, six different interventions will take place in the digital realm. The interventions (self-)critically explore the theme of hosting from different perspectives in relation to current socio-political and cultural-political debates and developments, including the changing constellations of the current pandemic.
The project is carried out in cooperation and with the support of the Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden and is funded by Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien. One part of project will be shown in the a&o Hostels Dresden with the support of the of the stART Foundation.
