Poetics of Intervention

Conference

Thursday, 20 Oct 2022
Grand Opening

The celebratory opening of the new Collaborative Research Centre “Intervening Arts” takes place in cooperation with the Akademie der Künste, Berlin.

Academic perspectives and artistic positions complement and comment each other to explore the relationship between art, society and politics. Together, we explore the generative potential of the arts: Which role do artistic interventions play in social processes? Is the ambivalent term “intervention” suitable at all for capturing these dynamics? Among others, spokesperson Jürgen Brokoff will deliver a festive opening speech before the artists James Bridle and Emeka Ogboh will talk about their work.
