Künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit dem Begriff WIDERSTAND

Workshop, 14.30 – 17.30 Uhr, mit Klaus E. Dietl und Stephanie Müller

Klaus E. Dietl and Stephanie Müller are based in the midst of a buzzing collective of artists and activists in Munich, Germany. Since 2009 the Mediendienst Leistungshölle has evolved from a vibrant underground studio to an international nucleus for interdisciplinary art projects. Together with performers, musicians, visual artists and researchers they develop sound installations, videos, feature films and interactive live performances.

Besides their art projects Klaus and Stephanie have been engaged as university and guest lecturers – amongst others at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, University Mozarteum Salzburg, University of Salzburg, University of the Arts Bremen, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, University of Cologne, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and Academy of Fine Arts Munich. Dialogue lies at heart of their art and research projects. Their main focus is on communicative strategies for undermining social control and exclusion. What makes people afraid of complexity and diversity? Why do people tend to cut themselves off from their environment instead of digging into it? What if we would try and pull our heads together?
