We cordially invite you to the lecture and conversation (in German)
"Vom begrenzten Sehen zum Sehen von Grenzen. Die Thematisierung der Grenze in Sozialwissenschaften und bildender Kunst"
"From limited vision to seeing boundaries, the thematization of borders in the social sciences and fine arts"
by Dr. Norbert Cyrus (Research Associate of the European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder) - Viadrina Center B / ORDERS IN MOTION) as part of the IGBK-annual project "Übergänge/ Nachbarschaft"
on Friday, June 14, 2019, 19h in the Aula of the Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, Bühringstraße 20, 13086 Berlin
Norbert Cyrus will be talking about the so-called "paradox of the border": Borders can act both as barriers and as bridges. Their actual design is always context-dependent. Especially in artistic production, the aspect of the dissolvability of boundaries is brought to light and made tangible. In turn, scientific critical border research attempts to intellectually grasp how borders could funtion differentely.
Welcome: Leonie Baumann, Director Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin.
Introduction and moderation: Marcel Noack and Jörg Wagner, board members of the IGBK, project leaders "Übergänge/ Nachbarschaft".
Admission free. The event is the prelude to the annual IGBK General Assembly on the same weekend.
