Texts are turned into books – but also podcasts, digital formats 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 facilitate them.


Janhavi Acharekar, Lina Atfah, Josefine Berkholz, Jennie Bohn, Grashina Gabelmann, Muna Gurung, Charmaine Li, Chris Möller, Tamar Noort, Sass Popoli, Svenja Reiner, Tanasgol Sabbagh, Fabian Saul, Mae Schwinghammer, Katharina Stahlhofen, Vera Vorneweg and Mathias Zeiske.


Following the residencies of authors in the Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, their literary projects were 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 were also be discussed. The aspects of production conditions and resonance spaces were central to this. One particular interest was 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.
