DISABILITY ARTS MEET UP! 27.9.2019

Berlinklusion and Diversity Arts Culture invite you to:

Disability Arts Meet Up

The Conceivability of the Invisible
 

About the event:

Are you an artist or cultural worker with a disability? Do you work with artists or cultural workers with disabilities? Or do you simply want to know more about working in this exciting field of contemporary art? 

Then come along to the Disability Arts Meet Up, an informal get together where you can meet other people working in the field. 

The next meeting takes place on the 27thof September from 6-8pm at feldfünf.

In the first half of the meeting there will be three short inputs on the topic The Conceivability of the Invisible. Presenters will explore the following: producing optical effects through the play of light and translating them into images, feeling space through the relationship of the people within it, living and dealing with needs that are invisible to others. Through these presentations we are posing questions about the many ways in which the invisible influences artistic practice in addition to being a creative engine in and of itself. 

There will also be an opportunity to meet cultural experts with disabilities to ask them about their experiences working in the cultural field.

Speakers: Ono Ludwig, Gerald Pirner und Alexandra Trencséni

Berlinklusion is at Body-Check!

Kubinaut Logo

Berlinklusion is taking part in Body-Check, an event by Kubinaut about body and identity in cultural education.

Come along! All the important details are below:

Where and when?

On Thursday, 18 October 2018
from 1pm to 5pm
in the city villa Global
Otto-Wels-Ring 37, 12351 Berlin

About the event:

Kulturprojekte Berlin and the Landesvereinigung Kulturelle Jugendbildung Berlin invite you to the Kubinaut – Partnerbörse Kulturelle Bildung # 7.

This year, the Partnerbörse (symposium) is dedicated to the topic of “Body-Check – Body and Identity in Cultural Education.” From birth, we are divided into women / men, people with / without disabilities, people of color / white, etc. Such categories create exclusions and often lead to prejudices about the abilities and legitimacy of supposedly others, but how can these internalized incarnations be broken up and alternatives presented so that children and adolescents can choose their own identity and thus their social role? In which way is resistance to discrimination and dominating normativity possible? What experimental spaces can create cultural education for such physical self-awareness?

At the symposium, best practice projects from cultural education, pedagogy, art education, youth work and research present practice-oriented approaches to the questioning of body-related stereotypes as well as enabling methods for cultural education practice with children and adolescents.

In addition, there will be an opportunity to learn about funding opportunities, to exchange topics as well as to post offers and requests on the bulletin board.

FILMPREMIERE: COMMON GROUND IN DIVERSITY

20.6.2018

tanzfähig and Berlinklusion organised the premiere of the film “Common Ground in Diversity” (DE 2017, min 94, camera and editing: Sushma U. Gütter) and Q&A with authors. Film documents the four days of the choreographic research of tanzfähig and the Berlin-based choreographer duo matanicola, which was conducted in September 2016 as part of the EU project “Moving Beyond Inclusion”.

Description
This film is a unique document that accompanies at close range the artistic process between the choreographer duo matanicola and a diverse group of dancers with different ages, physicalities, backgrounds, dance experience, and disabilities. Impressively the film illustrates how, over the course of their four day choreographic research, the concept of ​​movement is being passed from the minds of the choreographers into the dancers’ bodies and how it is coming to life in them. It is touching to see how day by day the dancers are getting more immersed into the choreographic ideas, by learning to trust the process, are able to expose more of themselves, and so move beyond their own expectations and imaginations. The film captures the very beginning of a creative dance process and demonstrates that there are no better bodies, or worse bodies, there are just bodies. Furthermore, through the act of dancing, the film speaks of learning and of the unfolding emotional journey.

CALL AND RESPONSE: REISEN DURCH EINE MULTI-SENSORISCHE LANDSCHAFT

Interaktive Kunstinstallation und Launch von Berlinklusion Netzwerk für Zugänglichkeit in Kunst und Kultur Ein Teil von Australia-Berlin Art Exchange

13.10.2017

“Call and Response” ist eine künstlerische Zusammenarbeit zwischen der australischen zeitgenössischen Tänzerin Anna Seymour und den Berliner Künstler*innen Kirstin Broussard, Jovana Komnenic und Dirk Sorge. Gemeinsam haben sie eine interaktive Installation entwickelt, die unterschiedliche Perspektiven untersucht, indem Klang, Bewegung und bildende Kunst verbunden werden. Eine Serie von sinnlichen Stationen lädt die Teilnehmer*innen dazu ein, miteinander zu interagieren und flüchtige Kunstwerke zu schaffen. Dadurch werden die Themen Verbundenheit und Verschiedenheit als Antriebskräfte für Kreativität erforscht.
Die Veranstaltung mündete in eine lockere Netzwerk-Aktivität, gesponsert von Berlinklusion: ein internationales Netzwerk für Zugänglichkeit in Kunst und Kultur, ansässig in Berlin.
