Annaliisa and I met in the painting class at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Art and Design - we’ve previously collaborated on a publication in homage to Etel Adnan, called Élan. We had also been the HiWis for our class, and through this job had recognised and were able to develop methods of care for ourselves and the other students within the class; this position, especially in the organisation of excursions, made us aware of each classmate’s context - in terms of financial, language and academic capacities.

In discussing the collective’s ambitions with this group exhibition, we understand das Kurativ’s work to be addressing precarities in the art-making industry that are linked to issues of inequality – for example age, motherhood, education, class. We care about these issues, too.
Kurzbeschreibung Deines eingereichten Projekts:
