Workshop: The body, a repository.
Pasquale Virginie Rotter
Register here until November 8th
Our body memorizes and accumulates our experiences of life. With the help of (movement-)exercises the workshop will guide through the various embodied landscapes of knowledge. The aim is to regain one’s sense of embodiment.

Welcome and Introduction
(Liebermann Kiepe Reddemann)
Moderation: Henrike Uthe
The Kunsthalle Osnabrück is showing contemporary art that is considered to be relevant in terms of social policy. Hence, it is always concerned with questions of participation, addressing and visibility. The Hamburg based design studio Liebermann Kiepe Reddemann specializes in digital technologies. In this panel discussion the museum’s and studio’s directors speak about their collaboration on the Kunsthalle’s current annual focus “accessibility,” as well as the processual design of the accessible website and related structures.
Panel: Körper im Design, Körper im Prozess
Katharina Brenner and participants of the Workshop „The body, a repository.“ in conversation with the guests of the panel „Barrierefreiheit“
Moderation: Henrike Uthe
Katharina Brenner studied visual communication at the Berlin University of the Arts and completed her studies with a project on feminist futures. She is currently working as a graphic designer at Rimini Berlin. She organizes workshops and writes about abuse of power and discrimination at art schools, most recently on futuress.org.
Lecture: The Skin Acts
Moderation: Martin Beck
A soliloquy on the skin, in two acts: It starts off with the materiality of the skin as the somatic dimension of making, becoming and performing norms, and ends with the speculation of how this skin can be cut through, literally and figuratively, and reimagined as penetrable, diffusive and processual to pave the way for non-normative practices and becomings.
Ece Canlı is a Porto-based researcher, artist and musician whose work sits at the intersection of decolonial queer feminism, material regimes, body politics and myths. She is a founding member of Decolonising Design Group and currently a researcher and lecturer at The Communication and Society Research Centre (CECS) at University of Minho.
Thursday, November 18th
Moderation: Kathrin Peters
Language is action, it is performance. In visual design we visualize language, add typographical shape to it, and decide on hierarchies. What are the possibilities to use typographicals tools in an anti-discriminatory way and to hack the normative and binary gender system? Based on her handbook "Typohacks," Hannah Witte will give an introduction to gender-sensitive ways of enacting language in design. In addition, she will share methods to use typographical signs as political troublemakers.
Hannah Witte (she*her) is a graphic designer based in Leipzig. Her design practice is focused on feminist topics, gender stereotypes and non-binary typography. Recently, she published the handbook "Typohacks" about gender-sensitive language and typography with form Verlag.
Rituals of Un-healing
Moderation: Constanze Hein
The perfor-mancer will perform a number of divinatory rituals of Un-healing. Bodies and corpora of text and language are perfor/ated and create portals, holes and wounds from and through which voices, other text and vocal silences are channeled.
Katharina Ludwig is an artist and writer working with text, installation and objects. Her research in the framework of the Art Research programme at Goldsmiths is concerned with narrative holes in women*’s writing and the temporalities of the “wounded text”. Her work has been shown, performed or read internationally and is published by a.o. 3am Magazine, Zeno Press, Chris Airlines, Ma Bibliothèque.
Lecture: Livid Residue:
Gender’s residue, sex, and textual dissidence in the rot of language.
Moderation: Annika Haas
How do we, cross-cut identities formed in the residue of sex and language, create tools that allow us to redirect, intervene, and transform meaning via emotion and sensation? This talk will focus on past and present tools of queerfeminist textual intervention, from sextoys to plagiarism.
Claire Finch is a writer and researcher whose work samples queer and feminist theories as a way to intervene in narrative. Their recent projects include I Lie on the Floor (After 8 Books, 2021), Lettres aux jeunes poétesses (L'Arche 2021), Kathy Acker 1971-1975 (Editions Ismael, 2019) and their translation into French of Lisa Robertson’s Debbie: An Epic (with sabrina soyer, Debbie: une épopée, Joca Seria, 2021).
