Each One, Teach One
Theory Tuesdays
Philip Matesic

During this session, Stefan Wagner will summarize Artur Żmijewski's text "Applied Social Arts". To make Żmijewski's artistic practice more transparent, there will also be a screening of "Two Monuments" (2009, 14 min 35 sec, English subtitles) and a discussion about the 7. Berlin Biennale, in which Żmijewski has been invited. The Berlin Biennale, that Żmijewski co-curated with Joanna Warsza and activist group Voina, has had a wide media presence after a project from the Czech artist Martin Zet. Zet asked to hand in Thilo Sarrazin's book "Deutschland schafft sich ab". The session will conclude with a controversial discussion about current artistic practices.
