On June 5th 2018 there will be a day dedicated to the current debates around #MeToo, #notsurprised and generally questions concerning gender based discrimination within the academic art world.

Many institutions and individuals with power in the art world espouse the rhetoric of feminism and equity in theory, often financially benefitting from these flimsy claims of progressive politics, while preserving oppressive and harmful sexist norms in practice. Those in power ignore, excuse, or commit everyday instances of harassment and degradation, creating an environment of acceptance of and complicity in many more serious, illegal abuses of power.

The exhibition an_archiv, which took place during annual student exhibition from 15.-18. February at the academy, deals with the holdings of the 1997 re-established archive under the direction of Julia Blume. It shows works by students of the subject class for Intermedia, who illuminate several potentials of an archive: that which could not find its way into a preservation and the thereby possible interpretation and related construction of history and what is stored in an archive.
