Aktionsräume – Book Launch

with readings and performances

Saturday February 24th, 7pm
at Lothringer13 Florida

free admission

AKTIONSRÄUME is a joint publication-project by DER FAHRENDE RAUM and Lothringer13 Florida on the history and presence of the term “action space” and its phenomenology. The publication gathers contributions which derive from the research background and the respective perspectives of Lothringer13 Florida and DER FAHRENDE RAUM.

Starting from the action space pedagogy in Munich of the 1970s / 80s, artist collectives KEKS and PA/paed-action, as well as the Kunstraum Aktionsraum 1, the fundamental characteristics of the term – the synthesis of public artistic production and representation within an urban space – gets illuminated.

On the evening of the release selected archival material and text passages from the publication “Aktionsräume” will be presented in the form of a scenic reading. By and with Maximiliane Baumgartner, Colin Djukic and the invited artists Anna Fehr and Laura Ziegler and other guests.

Furthermore we are happy to welcome the artist group »K« with a performance on the occasion of the release. The hybrid artist group K will materialize through three live voices of the open collective, within an artistic practice of togetherness. Yorgia Karidi (Athens), Marianna Feher (Stockholm) and Angela Stiegler (Munich) meet and show up to trigger a social response. Join K’s presence and take some cryptic intersections into account!

With contributions by Colin Djukic, Ingrid Scherf, Alfred Gulden, Maximiliane Baumgartner, Gabriela Burkhalter, Martina Oberprantacher, Charlotte Coosemans, Sebastian Schneider, Jonathan Penca, Simone Koller & Mara Züst, Gerd Grüneisl, Zühal Bilir-Meier & Cana Bilir-Meier, Katja Kobolt, Danijela Dugandžić, Noor Afshan Mirza, Jelena Petrović, Lala Raščić, Jelena and Vesna Vesić / Red Mined, Angela Stiegler / K, Kristian Byskov und Margarita del Carmen, Jelena Petrović, Johanna Klingler & Frauke Zabel.

The evening is organised by the joint editorial team of Lothringer 13 Florida and Fahrender Raum: Maximiliane Baumgartner, Cana Bilir-Meier, Colin Djukic, Katja Kobolt and book designer Ibrahim Öztaş.
