Texts give rise to books – but also podcasts, digital contributions and social encounters.
In the second edition of the CAP (Curating for Advanced Practices) program, everything revolves around (new) forms of literature and those who make and mediate them.
Following the residencies of authors in the Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, their literary projects will be presented and discussed together with other agents of the literary scene about needs, possibilities, structures and strategies.
As an essential part of the literary positions, the respective context of their origin stories will also be discussed. The aspects of production conditions and resonance spaces are central to this. One particular interest is the question of the extent to which artistic positions not only assert themselves on the basis of their content-related quality, but are also part of a system whose rules they not only have to master, but which they can change.
The event will culminate in a public festival program on July 8 and 9, 2023.
