weight, véhicules and telepathy, how "la facultad" feels at a distance

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.

Kunstraum of the Leuphana University Lüneburg is delighted to announce the opening of Philipp Gufler´s solo exhibition "Unterwerfungen". Bringing together old and new works and structured by Gufler’s ongoing collaboration with the self-organized Forum Queeres Archiv München, "Unterwerfungen" tracks the various ways in which Gufler stages archival material, resisting the heteronormative capture of a resistant past.
