talks and writing workshop
the exhibition"Unterbrochene Karrieren-Partnerschaften"
2001 - August 2002
Concept and realisation: Nanna Lüth / Carmen Mörsch, Kunstcoop©
Another Kunstcoop©-project were the gallery talks/writing workshop
which Carmen Mörsch and I did for the exhibition series "Interrupted
Careers - Partnerships". Each ot the 3 exhibitions showed work
of a couple of male artists where one of the partners had died from
AIDS and his partner was involved in the design of the exhibition
of their works (Ull Hohn / Tom Burr, Jochen Klein / Wolfgang Tillmans,
Piotr Nathan / Matt Ranger).
We invited different groups of people active in the fields of sexual
politics or AIDS activism. Each group visited each of the exhibitions.
At the end of the exhibition series, we offered a writing workshop
for all participants who were interested to continue the exchange
on Arts and HIV/AIDS, which aimed at a collaborative publication.
The whole process
lasted about one year, form, content, title of the broschure were
negotiated within the group. Carmen Mörsch and I offered our
conceptual and graphic skills to create a plattform for critical
reviews on the exhibition, biographical stories, own artistic productions
and publicity for the initiatives the people came from.
