Online Recherchefestival

Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin


Im Rahmen des Design Lab #6 des Kunstgewerbemuseums Berlin lädt das Studio Experimentelles Design der Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg zu einem dreiwöchigen virtuellen Recherche-Festival ein. Den Ausgangspunkt dafür bildet die Fragestellung:
(How) do we (want to) work (together) (as (socially engaged) designers (students and neighbours)) (in neoliberal times)?

Das Studio Experimentelles Design der Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg praktiziert seit 2011 mit der Öffentlichen Gestaltungsberatung St. Pauli einen politisch und sozial engagierten Designansatz. Es ist der Versuch, mit gestalterischen Mitteln mit und für diejenigen zu arbeiten, die üblicherweise von Design ausgeschlossen sind. Diese kritische Design-Haltung ermöglicht und erfordert neue Arbeitsweisen.

Aber wie funktionieren kollektive und interdisziplinäre Arbeitsbeziehungen? Wie verorten sich alternative Praxen und Subjektivitäten im Kontext der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen der Arbeitsverhältnisse und Lernformen im Neoliberalismus? Wie können neue solidarische Formen der Zusammenarbeit gestaltet werden?

Offene Diskussionen, interdisziplinäre Kooperation, Kollektivität, exzessive Diskurse, studentische Selbstorganisation, Theorie-Praxis-Vermischungen oder die vielfältige Einbeziehung außerhochschulischer Initiativen und Akteur*innen sind Kennzeichen der gegenwärtigen Suche nach alternativen (Zusammen-)Arbeitsformen. Diese zu erörtern, zu entwerfen und zu erproben ist integraler Bestandteil der Auseinandersetzung mit Design.

Die im Rahmen der Öffentlichen Gestaltungsberatung St. Pauli stattfindende Projektarbeit des Studios Experimentelles Design, erprobt seit vielen Jahren eine stadtteilbezogene Designunterstützung. Der hier experimentierte Designansatz und die Kooperation mit Nachbar*innen und dem sozialen Träger GWA St. Pauli verändert den Blick auf das, was Design sein sollte. Andere Auftraggeber*innen, Partner*innen und Fragestellungen bedürfen auch neuer Design-Subjektivitäten. Der Anspruch einer ressourcenschonenden und sozial verantwortlichen Gestaltung, die sich auch politisch positioniert, wird sich auch in der Art wie wir arbeiten niederschlagen. Wie können sich alternative Designpraxen etablieren und wie kann darin auskömmlich gearbeitet werden?

Schließlich steht auch auf gesamtgesellschaftlicher Ebene, die von radikalen Veränderungen der Arbeitsverhältnisse weltweit gekennzeichnet ist, eine kritische Diskussion an. Das zunehmende Auseinanderklaffen der Einkommensverhältnisse, die forcierte globale Arbeitsteilung, die neoliberale Subjektivierung von Risiken und Konflikten und die Ausweitung von Prekarität auf allen Ebenen betreffen auch das Design. Konkret in den eigenen Arbeitsbedingungen wie auch im Alltagsleben all derjeniger, die als Akteur*innen oder Betroffene mit Design zu tun bekommen.

Im Rahmen eines dreiwöchigen virtuellen Recherche-Festivals in Kooperation mit dem Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin beschäftigt sich das Studio Experimentelles Design mit akademischer Selbstorganisation, künstlerischer Kollektivität, Life Long (Un-)learning, Carearbeit, Selbstausbeutung, Netzwerkstrukturen, dem Dilemma der Projekte-Logik, unfreiwilliger Eigenverantwortung, alternativen Ökonomien, Informalität, immaterielle Arbeit, Kunststreik, Prekarität, Entfremdung und neuen Subjektivitäten.

Dafür macht das Studio Experimentelles Design den Rechercheprozess öffentlich. Drei Tage die Woche wird auf www.howtowork.live zu Leserunden, Workshops, Rumhängen und Vorträgen eingeladen. Gemeinsam mit Gästen, Freunden und Publikum werden Design, Arbeit und Lehre als sozial engagierte und politische Praxen diskutiert. Die Ergebnisse werden in einer Ausstellung am Kunstgewerbemuseum zu sehen sein und in einer Publikation dokumentiert.

Design Lab #6
Studio Experimental Design, HFBK Hamburg
Online Research Festival

June 24th – July 10th 2020
Wednesday to Friday,
Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin

As part of Design Lab #6 of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin, the Studio Experimental Design of the Hamburg University of Fine Arts is inviting to a three-week online-research festival. The starting point for this is the question:
(How) do we (want to) work (together) (as (socially engaged) designers (students and neighbours) (in neoliberal times)?

Since 2011, Studio Experimental Design of the University of Fine Arts Hamburg has been practicing a politically and socially engaged design approach with the Public Design Support St. Pauli. It is an attempt to use design resources to work with and for those usually excluded from design. This critical attitude towards design enables and requires new work practices.

However, how do collective and interdisciplinary working relationships function? How are alternative practices and subjectivities located in the context of the radical social changes in labour and learning conditions in neoliberalism? How can we build new solidary forms of cooperation?

Open discussions, interdisciplinary cooperation, collectivity, excessive discourses, student self-organisation, blending of theory and practice, or the diverse involvement of non-university initiatives and actors are characteristics of the current search for alternative forms of (collaboration -) work. Discussing, designing and testing these is an integral part of the examination of design.

The project work of Studio Experimental Design, which takes place within the framework of the St. Pauli Public Design Support, has been testing district-related design support for many years. Experimenting this design approach by cooperating with neighbours and the social organisation GWA St. Pauli, the view of what design is should be changed. Other clients, partners and issues also require new design subjectivities. The demand for a resource-saving and socially responsible design, which also positions itself politically, will also be reflected in the way we work. How can alternative design practices establish themselves and how can we adequately work in them?

Finally, on the overall social level, which is characterised by radical changes in working conditions worldwide, a critical discussion is looming. The increasing divergence of income relations, the forced global division of labour, the neoliberal subjectification of risks and conflicts and the expansion of precariousness at all levels also affects design. Specifically in their own working conditions as well as in the everyday life of all who are involved with design as actors or those affected.

Within the framework of a three-week virtual research festival in cooperation with the Berlin Museum of Decorative Arts, the Studio Experimental Design is concerned with academic self-organisation, artistic collectivism, life-long (un)learning, care work, self-exploitation, network structures, the dilemma of project logic, involuntary personal responsibility, alternative economies, informality, immaterial labour, art strike, precariousness, alienation and new subjectivities.

Entreprecariat
Silvio Lorusso

Since Silvio Lorusso feels exhausted himself, we will be watching the recording of a presentation he held in 2018. It will be followed by an open discussion with him in a videoconference.

The participation is limited to 30 persons. Alternatively join listening: radio.howtowork.live/stream

Silvio Lorusso’s work focuses on the cultures and rhetorical regimes embedded in techno-social systems. He deals with the narratives and counternarratives that define platforms, devices and interfaces. By doing so, he engages with the tensions surrounding notions of labour, productivity, autonomy, self-design, entrepreneurialism, precarity and failure. Lorusso’s practice combines various media such as video, website, artist’s book, installation, lecture. This activity is further stimulated by writing essays, curating exhibitions and organizing public programs. In 2018 he published his first book entitled ENTREPRECARIAT: Everyone Is an Entrepreneur. Nobody Is Safe. (Onomatopee, English; Krisis, Italian). Silvio Lorusso is Affiliated Researcher at the Institute of Network Cultures of Amsterdam, Creative Coding Tutor at the Royal Academy of Art in Den Haag and researcher at the Willem De Kooning Academy. He’s also a member of varia and part of the editorial board of Italian graphic design magazine Progetto Grafico. His work has been presented at, among other venues, MaXXI, Rome; Transmediale, Berlin; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; Kunsthalle Wien; NRW-Forum, Düsseldorf. He holds a Ph.D. in Design Sciences from the School of Doctorate Studies – Iuav University of Venice. His writing has appeared in several magazines and publications, including Volume, Real Life Magazine, Minima&Moralia, Not, Modes of Criticism, Printed Web 3, Metropolis M, Digicult. Since 2013, he manages the Post-Digital Publishing Archive (p-dpa.net). He lives in Rotterdam.

How Can We Get Together in Digital Space?
Studiengruppe Informationsdesign

creating a common room for conversations
how do you start a conversation? which new rituals can help to contribute in a discussion? which old habits and convention hinder it? what kind of group dynamic do we wish to develop? how can we establish shared values, mutual respect and an atmosphere of care as the mode of conversation?
We will appraoch these questions through collective reading and small experiments. bring your breakfast!

The participatory format on the topic of self care deals with the question of how movement and coming together can take place in the digital world. Interdisciplinarity, self-empowerment and reflection on action are just a few of the keywords addressed by the independent group of students.

Self-As-Other-Trainings
Vivien Tauchmann

This is an invitation to practice changing power dynamics through tactile and bodily engagement. The training gives for 24 min. an insight into the daily routines of thousands of domestic workers globally. The experiential performative exercise is part of the ongoing research project “Self-As-Other-Trainings”. Rather than representing the underlying politics and the subjects of discrimination in a known mediatic format, the Trainings invite you to re-enact the embodied experience at the scale of the human, which changes how we can observe and experience a condition of otherness. Instead of focusing on preconceptions, they emphasise on the capabilities of our bodies to extend the individual experience of our environment and thus provoke behavioural change.

Archiv der Begegnungen
M.1/ Skadi Sturm

Was bleibt von einer Begegnung, von einem Gespräch? Persönliche Erinnerungen, Sinneseindrücke, Emotionen und vielleicht einige Notizen? Wie können diese flüchtigen Momente eingefangen werden – und wie kann das Erlebte auch Menschen zugänglich gemacht werden, die nicht dabei waren?

Mit diesen Fragestellungen beschäftigte sich eine Gruppe von Studierenden des Studio Experimentelles Design, um ein Archiv der Begegnung zu entwickeln: Ein Jahr lang begleiteten vier Studierende das kuratorische Programm im M.1 zum Thema Care von Sascia Bailer (Künstlerischer Leiterin des M.1 im Turnus 2019/20).

Jede dieser Veranstaltungen wurde jeweils durch eine Studentinnen dokumentarisch begleitet und im Nachhinein künstlerisch interpretiert. Dadurch sind acht Interpretationen der Veranstaltungen in Form von Koffern entstanden, die Außenstehenden einen Zugang zu dem Geschehenen ermöglichen.

Eine kurze Präsentation des Projekts und Einblick in die Arbeit zwischen den Themen Care-Arbeit, Gestaltung und Kunst.

Mapping Session: Care, Work and Precarity
Manuela Zechner

Mapping session: Alle Teilnehmer*innen halten bitte Buntstifte und Papier bereit.

In diesem Workshop gehen wir den Beziehungen, Netzwerken und Infrastrukturen nach, die uns am Leben erhalten: wer kümmert sich wie um uns, und umgekehrt? Was hat Sorge mit Arbeit zu tun, und wie gehen wir mit Sorge, Arbeit und Sorgearbeit um? Als prekäre Kulturarbeiterinnen macht uns nicht nur Arbeit Sorgen. Uns beschäftigt auch die Frage nach der Nachhaltigkeit und Dauerhaftigkeit unserer Lebenswelten und Unterstützungsnetzwerke. Wir werden also Methoden des Counter-mapping verwenden, um unsere prekären Welten im Hinblick auf Sorge zu durchleuchten, und uns gemeinsam Fragen, was uns das alles wert ist.

Manuela Zechner ist feministische Kulturarbeiterin und Forscherin. Sie beschäftigt sich mit Care, Ökologie, Krise, Mikropolitik und Migrationen. Sie schreibt, publiziert und organisiert Workshops in aktivistischen, universitären und künstlerischen Zusammenhängen. Momentan arbeitet sie an einem Buch zu Childcare Commoning und der Mikropolitik des Munizipalismus in Barcelona (Power in Vulnerability, mit Transversal Texts) und entwickelt Care-Mapping Methoden in Hinblick auf mehr-als-menschliche Welten.

Emma Dowling

Emma Dowling is a sociologist and feminist political economist currently based at the University of Vienna. Previously she lived and worked in London. She is interested in how affects and emotions are valorised in contemporary capitalism and in the meanings and functions of different instantiations of unpaid work. She has collaborated internationally with social justice and community organisations, which has included designing co-research methodologies. Her most recent work has looked at economic crisis from the perspective of care.

Research as Care
Lisa Baumgarten (Teaching Design)

“A school becomes a factory producing designers, one that, in keeping with the principles of ‘good design,’ turns them into efficient and interchangeable parts ready to hit the market.” schreibt Jakob Lindgren, also sind selbstdenkende Gestalterinnen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt überhaupt gefragt?
Wenn Gestaltungsschulen ihre Hauptaufgabe darin sehen, Studierende auf den Arbeitsmarkt vorzubereiten, bleibt dann noch Zeit und Raum eine informierte, kritische Haltung zu entwickeln? Und wie können wir gestalten, ohne dabei diskriminierende Strukturen zu reproduzieren, wenn wir uns beispielsweise nie gefragt haben, wie und in welchem Kontext Gestaltung entstanden ist?
In der Designdebatte „Research as Care“ diskutieren wir über die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit Design und dessen Wirkungsmacht in Geschichte, Kultur, Politik und Gesellschaft – als Form von care – und was das Lesen von Texten sowohl kollektiv und auch für jede
n von uns als gestaltendes Individuum verändern kann.

Lisa Baumgarten ist Co-Initiatorin der partizipativen Research-Platform „Teaching Design“, die sich mit Designlehre, -theorie und -pädagogik aus intersektional-feministischer und dekolonialer Perspektive auseinandersetzt. Sie arbeitet als freischaffende Gestalterin und lehrt an Designhochschulen und -universitäten Designtheorie und -praxis. Als Designpädagogin liegt ihr Fokus auf dem Aufzeigen von Handlungsspielräumen und der Befähigung gefestigte Strukturen zu hinterfragen und zu durchbrechen.

working together: being slower than expected
In the Meantime

How can we address the different needs that exist within a group? Are there invisible (power) dynamics in groups and what are strategies to make them more visible? How can we recognize the complexity of processes that are taking place within a group (below the surface)? How can we adapt to different speeds? How can group work become more joyful (again)?

Often, when working together we are so busy focussing on our to-do-lists, deadlines and goals that we don't recognize the multilayered task of collaborative work. During this workshop we want to take time to reflect on the emotional/care/organizational work that is necessary to run a functioning group.

Accessibility:

The workshop will last 2 hours. There will be a short short break after about an hour. The workshop will be held in English. Unfortunately there is no sign-language translation. You can share as much or little as you like, you will not be called out to speak.

Die Experimentelle Klasse agiert an der Schnittstelle zwischen bildender Kunst und Theorie und legt dabei den Schwerpunkt auf queere, feministische und intersektionale Fragestellungen und Arbeitsweisen.

Die Klasse entstand aus dem Bedürfnis heraus, einen alternativen, hierarchiearmen und angstfreien Raum für Klassengespräche zu entwickeln, der zunächst als Lehrformat funktionierte und nun die Basis für eine Zusammenarbeit über den Rahmen der Institution hinaus stellt.
Mit dem Fokus auf verschiedene Aspekte von Care-Arbeit versucht sich die Klasse an unterschiedlichen kollaborativen und partizipativen Arbeitsformen, über die ein gemeinschaftliches Arbeitsklima entwickelt werden soll.

Die Experimentelle Klasse der HFBK Hamburg wurde von Joke Janssen und ANna Tautfest ins Leben gerufen und besteht aus: Saskia Ackermann, Anne Mayer, Anne Meerpohl, Zineb Mahassini, Lara Molenda, Charlotte Perka, Mona Rizaj, Cristina Rüesch, Anna Unterstab

Working Without a Boss
VIOME & MadyGraf

In order to prevent factory closures, break the bad working conditions and the exploitation of the labour force, workers have taken over their factories and organised themselves without bosses. The soap factory Vio.me and the printing house MadyGraf are two lighthouse projects for workers' self-management. Together we want to talk about the experiences of the workers and discuss the perspectives of self-government for our society. How can we organize a working world that is oriented towards our needs and not towards the profit of a few people?
