The five-channel video installation Between the Waves, 2012, is a "circular fable, a new cosmology bearing a strong commentary on the Anthropocene", as the artist Tejal Shah puts it. Shahs works are informed by a non-binary Buddhist philosophy and practice, queer-feminism and eco-poetics.

Artist Park McArthur joins the M.A. Cultures of Critique at the Leuphana University Lüneburg for the 2023/24 winter term to conceptualize an exhibition for the Kunstraum. McArthur’s engagement with the Kunstraum begins with a listening session on October 25 and concludes with a public symposium and exhibition in January 2024.

with Catalina Insignares, Henrike Kohpeiß, Myriam Lefkowitz
Dedicated to exiled people and those who assist them, la facultad is a site where our dormant sensory faculties are exercised, so that we can hear, study and amplify them in collaborative situations. For the public talk on April 27, Lefkowitz and Insignares depart from written reflections on la facultad (and its different iterations since 2017), drawing out some of the ideas in dialogue with the philosopher Henrike Kohpeiß. The talk approaches an ongoing project at a distance.
