Online lecture and workshop series »Transformation – Unfolding the Future«
Akademie Schloss Solitude is delighted to present its new online lecture and workshop series »Transformation – Unfolding the Future«.
The series brings together international scientists and artists who make significant contributions on the question of how we want to shape our society and our coexistence. In their research, they raise questions on new concepts for social transformations, political invention and solidarity. The role that artists and artistic production plays in the unfolding of the future is at the core of the lecture and workshop series.
The novel digital format is a response both to the global health pandemic and climate crisis, thinking through accessibility and affordances of participation without travel.
It was developed by Nishant Shah, vice-president Research at ArtEZ University of the Arts, The Netherlands, together with Akademie Schloss Solitude. It offers an option of radically rethinking a performance lecture to engage with the distributed and global communities of Akademie Schloss Solitude.
The series consists of a thesis lecture, which will be released online for six weeks. During this time questions, suggestions and feedback can be shared. A moderator from Akademie Schloss Solitude gathers the questions and synthesizes some of the key aspects. In the next step, they will be discussed with the speaker in an online live event. The recordings feed into a growing archive, which will be made permanently accessible on our website.
We invite you to join us on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, to listen to the thesis lecture by Dr. Nishant Shah at Akademie Schloss Solitude and discuss it afterwards.
