The new JUNGE AKADEMIE digital platform at junge-akademie.adk.de

Another Akademie der Künste digital platform went online today. In order to promote and present young art, the JUNGE AKADEMIE has developed a new offering for fellows and alumni at junge-akademie.adk.de – a transdisciplinary and transcultural online magazine, a space to exhibit and experiment and a digital open studio. The platform is intended to promote the networking of artists, fellows and members and to enable and make new digital projects and the exchange of knowledge within the international network visible. Among other things, it offers discussions in the context of art and society, work presentations, (video) essays, stories, making-ofs, online laboratories and fictional texts. Various artistic and activist voices, aesthetics and positions as well as collective processes and discourses are to be promoted in articles and digital spaces.
The junge-akademie.adk.de platform follows the portal for digital projects of the Archives of the Akademie der Künste (see Press Release of 12 August 2020)

With the coronavirus pandemic, digital solutions have again become more important for the production of art and for exchange within international communities. Transnational residency programmes have been particularly affected by the necessary measures to contain the pandemic, especially by border closures and travel bans. The platform supports the programme work and networking activities of the JUNGE AKADEMIE in order to maintain and further promote the dynamics and diversity of the community and provide fellows who are currently unable to travel to Europe with prospects through virtual residencies, for example.

Since 2007, the JUNGE AKADEMIE has been supporting international artists in all of its sections – Visual Arts, Architecture, Music, Literature, Performing Arts, Film and Media Art – with various fellowships both in Germany and abroad. The artist-in-residence programme of the Akademie der Künste offers fellows the opportunity to network with members of the Akademie and partners, to participate in current discourses and to research the Akademie’s archive holdings as well as developing artistic projects.

The digital platform was developed and realised with the kind support of the Society of Friends of the Akademie der Künste.
