Common project by Artist in Residence Alexander Schellow and Senior Fellow Klaus von Heusinger
It began with an encounter at the Zukunftskolleg and now resulted in a conference on “Memory and Meaning between Dynamic and Stability”. When Artist in Residence Alexander Schellow and Senior Fellow Klaus von Heusinger met at the Zukunftskolleg about two years ago they had the idea of a common project with artists and linguists. In cooperation with the department of German Linguistics at the University of Cologne Klaus von Heusinger and Alexander Schellow invited five artists and four linguists to take part in the two-days conference in the rooms of index.film in Berlin in December 2012. According to the Artist in Residence it was a great success: “The discussions between artists and linguists were very productive and fundamental. The different positions were highly interesting and multifaceted enough without creating two fronts.”
The next step will be to establish a website to continue the discussions and gain new people. In several months the two initiators plan to organize a second conference in Cologne.
