Online Publishing – Journal & Blog
The publishing formats pursued by Akademie Schloss Solitude place a multi-perspective world and diverse forms of knowledge in the public sphere, and shape the digital space as a transcultural and transdisciplinary expanse of knowledge production.
The Solitude Journal communicates current topics at Akademie Schloss Solitude and appears several times a year as an online and print magazine. It presents a selection of contributions conceived specifically for this format, and enables a discursive and in-depth examination of specific theme clusters. It combines a wide range of diverse artistic and scientific approaches, and explores forms of publishing and writing as a collective and curatorial process.
The Solitude Blog is a transdisciplinary online platform for the publication and mediation of journalistic, literary and artistic work as well as artistic and scientific research. On the platform, fellows, web residents and members of the Solitude network discuss current topics from art, culture, society and science. The format Studio Visits offers insights into the studios and current work of international artists, curators and academics. The journal, blog and Studio Visits formats promote the visibility of the Solitude network of alumni, experts and friends from over 120 countries as well as endorsing new artistic and political voices and collective discourse.
Schlosspost, Akademie Schloss Solitude’s online platform from 2015 to 2020, remains freely accessible as an open archive with approximately 1,800 contributions.
Learning Units – Online Events & Workshops
Learning Units are loose clusters of online events, workshops and participatory formats initiated by Digital Solitude and the Solitude network. They demonstrate the necessity of developing alternative ways of acting and methods of application and sharing them. In this way, the format promotes collective participation and access to knowledge. Its focus is placed both on the technology-based establishment and maintenance of social relationships and spaces, as well as on the transfer of knowledge about digital cultures. In particular, Learning Units invite current and former fellowship holders, web residents and experts to discuss models that articulate new realities and encourage people to move in and between analog and digital territories, networks and worlds.
