Lecture within the framework of the conference Whose Universal? as part of the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art on July 2, 2022 at Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg.
This lecture will probe the imagery of late 19th century symbolism for figuring as a template to, once again, deliver the European subject of modernity to its rightful deaths. Arguing for poetic forms of extradition and exhaustion, Kerstin Stakemeier calls on the works of poets and artists; Ligia Lewis, MYSTI, Verity Spott, Emily Wardill.
Organized by Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in collaboration with the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art
