Organized by: Institut für Kunst im Kontext der UdK Berlin in Kooperation mit der nGbK
The Institute for Art in Context at the University of the Arts Berlin is a brainchild of 1970s West Berlin. Beginning with the Artists’ Congress of 1971, this jubilee exhibition traces the genesis of a curriculum once described as a ›pilot project in further art education‹. It turns the spotlight on the discursive positions and pioneering cooperative working methods and means of production forged at the Institute since 1978. It also draws on common pursuits and personal trajectories to highlight intersections with the nGbK’s own fifty-year history.
