Vielen Dank an den Künstler, Kritiker & Kurator Mohammad Salemy für seinen Vortrag & Workshop Against (Americanized) German Idealism: Meme Magic Factory im Rahmen der internationalen BAI Frühlingsakademie zum Thema Kunst & Kritik. Der Vortrag gibt unseren Teilnehmer*innen einen umfangreichen Einblick in seine interdisziplinäre Praxis und das Zustandekommen und die Konzeption seiner Projekte. Die Veranstaltung fand statt innerhalb des Studioprogrammes am BAI | Kunstschule, Kunstinkubator & Artist in Residence in Berlin.
“Mohammad Salemy speaks about his methodologies of writing fiction, non fiction, as well as his ambivalent content production on Facebook as a form of artistic & intellectual practice. In his hands on workshop, participants will learn of hybrid methodologies for research and production of very short fictions, status updates and memes. The participants will use these methods to produce materials that reimagine the chosen topics to push them outside of their defined and accepted boundaries using the power of words, images and memetic metaphors.” (Text by courtesy of Mohammad Salemy)
