open initiative

K is an open initiative that experiments with a-disciplinary forms of exchange in the fields of artistic practices and research. Since 2013, symposium formats of several days, exhibitions and workshops have taken place. These serve as a platform for young researchers and artists to test their own (un)contemporaneousness by means of recurrent personal encounters. By now, K has established itself as an intimate laboratory and a public forum with transnational cooperation. Activities are accompanied and documented by publications and online at www.khybrid.com Thematic emphases emerge out of the individual participant’s contributions in response to the respective location and the changing interpersonal constellations. This way, K is a constantly changing body of multiple possibilities. It assembles current topics of artistic and research practice as well as things that are of personal relevance for us. These are brought into new formats, again and again. K core team: Isabel Bredenbröker, Sarah Lehnerer, Lennart Boyd Schürmann, Angela Stiegler und Felix Leon Westner.
