Historical awareness builds perceptions of the connectedness of things, of past, present and future. The notion of relics is considered and expanded for artistic purposes, which can be truly contemporary for new conceptions beyond a physical state. In developing this topic, the programme will emphasise the ideal of relics in digital space. We will look at how media-generated digital clips (e.g. police videos of the deaths of Rodney King and George Floyd; internet MEMES) have become artifacts or relics forming the basis of new narratives in today’s global society. Has the ideal of the local vernacular, or of indigenous culture, become more diminished in light of these digital events? Participants will be able to discuss these questions and others with various artists, curators and cultural agents from diverse backgrounds, to gain insight into how they perceive such phenomena.

Art of the Gap will include talks with artists, musicians and other cultural agents, as well as studio visits and workshops. Participants will not only be exposed to course inputs, but will be able to shape and articulate the topic in their own practice. The resulting works will be exhibited at an artist space in Berlin.
