For the general public as well as for the public specifically interested in cultural art, there is little or no resonance for artistic expression outside established institutions such as museums, galleries, etc.

With its Web Residencies, Akademie Schloss Solitude has been supporting artists, designers, cyborgs, hackers and researchers who use digital space since 2016 (collaborating with the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe from 2017-2020). The program takes place exclusively online. The web residencies program support young talents from the international digital scene, and artists and/or activists of all disciplines who deal with web-based practices. These present the process and results of their work online on a platform. For each call, curators select four people or teams for a four-week web residency. Each of them is granted with an amount of money. Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms, and reflect on the topics set by the curators.

Calibrating the Compass

How does an art space operate that has no physical space? How does it relate to known parameters such as locality and publics, duration and address? We are interested in the possibilities of an institutional model that rethinks its role, relations and resources. This is when the curatorial comes into play in our idea of an institution specifically adapting to the situation it is hosted by. Because our curatorial work is also guided by the experience that it is in particular smaller institutions and initiatives not following the traditional models that emit radical change. In our presentation, we will talk about our curatorial approach and our plans within the framework of such institutional considerations.

Public preposition - making things very public!

Mischa Kuball’s “public preposition” is a group of works, interventions, projects, and performances made over a period of several decades. What they have in common is that they appeal to a public sphere and implicitly question in what locations and under what circumstances what we mean by “public” is constituted and how it should be understood. Many of these interventions and projects were temporary in nature and only exist in photo documentation form. Others were deliberately conceived as more ephemeral, with a limited visibility even in terms of their local appearance. In this sense, “public preposition” points to a fundamental contradiction of the public sphere: on the one hand, it sees itself as unlimited, but on the other the audience of an intervention or event and its viewers and participants is objectively limited. For this reason, to introduce “public preposition” in a public lecture of its own, to discuss it must itself be seen as a gesture.
