diejungeakademie@ home: Digital (high) culture in times of Corona

Event

Starts on

19:30 — 21:00

Event access: Public

In light of current government advice on coronavirus, the members of the Junge Akademie will continue the event series diejungeakademie@ virtually until further notice.

Digital (high) culture in times of Corona

The measures associated with the containment of Covid-19 meant that, from March onwards, museums, concert halls, literature houses, theatres and other cultural venues had to close, along with most public places. The art business suffered severe restrictions in all areas, and many respects came to a complete standstill.

As a by-product of the shutdown, it was noticeable that many digital offers in the field of art were made available free of charge or newly launched. It occurred both in the institutional sector (museums, concert halls) and on a smaller scale (streams, balcony concerts).

What prompted this? What is the position of culture and especially digital high culture in times of Corona? Moreover, what does it say about the idea of the position of art within our (Western) society? What does it mean to transfer traditional presence formats into the digital world? Who visits the new virtual offerings? On the other hand, which genuinely digital art formats had already existed?

These are the questions the members of Die Junge Akademie Isabelle Dolezalek (University of Greifswald) and Miriam Akkermann (TU Dresden) will discuss withCaspar Battegay (Universität Basel) and their guests from science, culture and art: Lydia Jeschke, Editor-in-Chief Neue Musik und Jazz, SWR Holger Simon, art historian and cultural entrepreneur

The discussion will be followed by a live performance by Shelly Knotts.

The event takes place via Zoom and is held in German. For participation, please register here: www.anmeldung.diejungeakademie.de

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.
