How to work together in self-organised groups? What inner processes, values and changes a group has to deal with? Are self-organised groups able to gain sustainability? Constanze Müller, German curator and pedagogue, will lead an interdisciplinary workshop questioning and practising methods of self-organisation. Members of D21 Kunstraum Leipzig, the artist Anne Krönker and participants from Moscow are invited and welcomed to participate. Over the course of days, the group will form a temporary community to discuss questions on self-organisation, inner processes, values and changes a group has to deal with, and questions of sustainability. The aim is to exchange experiences as well as to create ideas and solutions.
The workshop is part of the exhibition Based on These New Dependencies, We Define Five Normal Forms (16.05 — 26.08.2018) curated by D21 Kunstraum, a non-profit space for contemporary art in Leipzig, and in particular, a platform for topics relevant to society to be communicated and discussed through the medium of art. D21 has been invited by the Goethe Institute and MMOMA to curate an exhibition that reflects their own organisational situation: D21 is administered by a self-organized association of volunteers. The exhibition reflects and nudges the evolution of social relationships, articulating unarticulated desires towards new relations, and fostering propositions about how we can live together. Looking back to the historic Proletkult movement, the exhibition and the accompanying program of performances, lectures, readings and workshops open a processual, participatory project.
