publics&publishings

09.10–23.12.2022

publics&publishings is a joint digital platform run by GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst, Künstlerhaus Bremen, and the Kunsthalle and Kunstmuseum Bremerhaven. Based on our respective exhibition, event, and mediation programs, the online platform gathers a range of contributions dedicated to spaces both as frameworks for activity and as normative codings, speaking to and with art in different ways. At the same time, the platform will discuss and negotiate questions of plurivocal publishing.

Based on shared reflections on longed-for places, GAK will set up a bookstore as a temporary framework for activity. Here, the publics&publishing events will take place, gathering various forms, constellations, and voices of publishing and publics.

These will include Ana Luiza Fonseca and Tanja Baudoin, who will focus on collaborative translation and on independent Brazilian publishing; Lucia Farinati on the meaning and power of listening and the relationship between recording and imagination; a workshop by Dudu Quintanilha on prophetic complaints; and a performance by Karolin Meunier, who weaves together the biographies of several women based on Barbara Loden’s film Wanda.

The bookstore will host an opening event on October 8 from 3 pm to 6 pm, after which it will be open during the regular hours of 11 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
