The workshop was initially developed for the Neighborhood Academy program of 2016, which focused on forms of collective learning. It took place with the participation of various grassroots initiatives and affinity groups operating with Berlin, connected by the fight for the right to the city, and strategies for reclaiming. The Reclaiming Workshop took place in “Die Laube,” a three-story experimental “treehouse” providing a space for self-organized, community-oriented and future-oriented learning, located in the Prinzessinnengarten, a community garden located around Moritzplatz, Kreuzberg. We officially launched the event by hanging protest banners used by each of the participating groups on the façade of “Die Laube,” thereby designating it as a space for collective learning.

D+T Masterclass at Parsons Paris

21-May-15

This seminar will focus on the processual approaches to looking and watching, but not in a representational sense: looking at how watching becomes a methodology of tracking. Watching as a tracking which involves online tracking, but can lead to a spatial one as well– an “inside the skin” in a narrative sense. How does one conceptualize this? How does one “do” watching? In this seminar I will discuss methods of tracking information and the study of datasets. How do we, as artists, sort through data, follow its traces, create narratives from it, and even include other people within the making of an artwork.The seminar will begin with a lecture performance, and will be followed by a presentation and discussion of artistic works that use narrativization and tracking.
