Art and Migration - Revisiting the Future:

10 years Research Group Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration




30. 11. - 01.12.2023                  


Today, in 2023, migration is considered one of the central issues of contemporary art and is currently experiencing an enormous boom in the art world, at exhibitions and biennials. Already a decade ago, the Ulmer Verein's research group Art Theory and Art Production in the Age of Global Migration was founded at the LMU Munich. Today, it is an important voice in the debate on the effects of global migration on art as well as on the places and institutions of artistic practice, which has become public in numerous workshops, conferences and fundamental publications.

The anniversary event "Art and Migration - Revisiting the Future" will take place on the occasion of the research group's tenth anniversary at the place of its foundation in Munich.

In cooperation with the Lenbachhaus and the Käte Hamburger Kolleg, the event offers the opportunity to look back on the joint work in the research group and the last ten years of engagement with the topics of art and migration, while at the same time taking a look into the future. How has political activism changed the role of art? How can exclusion mechanisms be counteracted? What might migration research in the arts and cultural studies look like in the future? These questions will be explored in the panel discussion at the Lenbachhaus, which will kick off the event and discuss art - activism - migration in their points of intersection.


At the Käte Hamburger Kolleg, these questions will be revisited and discussed in the review and outlook on the work of the research group. Here, discussion groups are planned to look back, to determine the current situation and to look at new perspectives, as well as a mapping to kick off the future tasks, activities and agendas of the RG. Impulse lectures by the fellows of the Käte Hamburger Kolleg global dis:connect will then offer insights into their research.

The program will conclude with a screening of "Sensitivity Screening - Unlearning the Past" by RG member Susanne Weirich and Robert Weirich Bramkamp.
