Exhibition: *foundationClass - from within the cracksSaturday, 28 November 2020 — Sunday, 17 January 2021
Open: Daily 12:00-18:00, Fri 12:00-20:00
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
The *foundationClass is both a study programme based at weißensee academy of art berlin and an artist collective. As a study program the *foundationClass seeks to facilitate access to art academies for people who migrated to Germany and who are affected by racism. In its artistic practice the collective fosters inclusive forms of teaching and education and deconstructs the mechanisms of exclusion inherent in white art institutions.
In spite of the obstacles posed by the academy, the *foundationClass constitutes a community within it. It creates a social space where knowledge, artistic and design practices are not consumed, but collectively questioned.
