Book launch and panel

In 2021, the Networks of Care workshop offered a platform at the nGbK for practitioners and experts to exchange views on strategies for dealing with artistic bequests and estates, private and public archives, or neglected bodies of documentation. Following the launch of the book, whose diverse and contradictory texts show that practices of preserving and discarding are always also political, a panel will discuss the necessary next steps in this structural and political task.

Panelists: Michael Melián (artist; steering committee, Society for Artist Research), Christin Lahr (artist; Professor of Media Art at the Academy of Fine Arts, Leipzig), Christine Henniger (conceptual team, TanzArchiv Berlin), Anna Schäffler (art historian; curator), Annette Maechtel (managing Director, nGbK)
