Kontingentale – Positionen im kontingenten Zeitalter
As kontingent kollektiv, we create concepts and programmes at the intersection of art, science, and society. Our work is focused on social coexistence.
The catalogue "Kontingentale - Positionen im kontingenten Zeitalter", which we are now displaying at Lothringer 13 Lokal, presents the collaborative exhibitions with artists on diverse social themes that we staged at Milchstraße 4 from February to July 2022. They addressed sociological topics like success, love, the body, gender, pathologisation, and foreignness. Each exhibition is given its own chapter, which is illustrated with (scientific) essays. The catalogue depicts common phenomena and scientific ideas through aesthetic positions. It was designed by John Haag and published by icon Verlag, with funding from the scholarship programme Junge Kunst und neue Wege and the LfA Förderbank.
We kindly invite you to visit us during our stay at Lothringer 13 Lokal from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays through Fridays. On the evening of June 9, we will celebrate the catalogue's launch with a panel discussion. Brnjsmin and Klaus Filser will present an electronic-acoustic concert on June 14th. Laura Späth will present a lecture on „Beschämte Körper und Spiegelblick” on June 15th, followed by an audience discussion. We invite you to a living room concert with the band Koko Head Park at the end of our residency on June 23rd.
We hope to see you at our events and look forward to fascinating discussions and inspiring experiences.
