Public Debate. Borders and Territories #1, 22/03/2018 - Part 2: Podium Discussion

Participants Annett Zinsmeister, Artist, Berlin In her work, Annett Zinsmeister focuses on the intersection of art, architecture, and cultural studies. She creates large-scale installations, conceptual and built spaces, photography, drawings, films and collages as well as texts. Theo Deutinger, Architect, Author of Handbook of Tyranny, Salzburg/Amsterdam 'Handbook of Tyranny' portrays the routine cruelties of the twenty-first century through a series of detailed non-fictional graphic illustrations. None of these cruelties represent extraordinary violence - they reflect day-to-day implementation of laws and regulations around the globe. Ai Weiwei, Artist, Berlin Ai Weiwei's film 'Human Flow' gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. In his project 'Good fences make good neighbors', the artist uses architecture and sculpture to jostle New Yorkers into recognition of the current sociopolitical environment, both locally and abroad.
