Lloyd Corporation: London/Athens (Exhibition)

London/Athens is a photographic series documenting street notices and advertisements found across the two cities since March 2020. Taken by the artists as they navigated and explored the streets during recent lockdowns, the images make visible a multitude of personal and political responses to the unprecedented conditions we currently face in the city.

Ali Eisa and Sebastian Lloyd Rees were fellows of the project "Art in a Conflicted World" of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf, which was funded by the German Foreign Office in 2020.

Natalia Pschenitschnikova „Requiem for a flower“ and „Tree Prayer"

"Requiem for a flower", developed during the residency at Schloss Wiepersdorf, is a musical performance with objects in which performative processes exert strong influences on the sound level. The piece was created against the background of the "Red List" of endangered plants in Russia (List of the vascular plants in the Red Data Book of Russia) and the poem "Flowers" by Bettina von Arnim. The performance can be described as a mobile installation in which the performer becomes both a flower and its viewer. “Tree Prayer" is also a piece that was conceived and developed in Wiepersdorf. It works with objects, voice and live electronics.

The Power of the Powerless

in English language

A panel discussion in cooperation with the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin LCB

The new society that formed in the protest summer of 2020 in Belarus is today exposed to a politics of revenge. Russian author Alisa Ganieva talks to fellow writers Viktor Martinovich (Belarus) and Ostap Slyvynsky (Ukraine) about how they perceive their own and each other's situation: Do they redefine their role as intellectuals in troubles communities, rethinking the relationship between the poet and the power? How do they cope with increasing fear and intimidation—and how to reconfirm values such as freedom, responsibility, and truth?

Event in German language

Digital symposium of the Network of German International Residency Programs (ADIR)

During the Covid-19 pandemic, residency programs for artists have proven to be very effective and viable structures for international cultural and knowledge exchange. Especially in this time of crisis, the enormous importance of international cooperation has become clear. As laboratories for a change of perspective, residency programs often serve as models for the question of how we want to live together.

Cultural and knowledge exchange thrives on polyphony and diversity. How can this be guaranteed in the long term? The presence of artists on site is indispensable for interactions in culture and society. How can the mobility of artists be preserved—even in times of crisis?


Weltklang – Night of Poetry

Weltklang – Night of Poetry is the opening in many voices of the poesiefestival berlin – this year in video format online. Poets from all parts of the world read, sing and perform in their seven native languages. They show the wealth of contemporary poetry, the diversity of its content, the wide range of its approaches and styles. The German translations will be faded in; many of the poems have been translated into German for the first time for Weltklang.
