Mierle Laderman Ukeles in dialogue with Dineo Seshee Bopape

Digital Artist Talk as part of the KPMG-Kunsttag

The current group exhibition "Everyone Is an Artist. Cosmopolitan Exercises with Joseph Beuys" at K20 shows, among others, the works "Transforming Fresh Kills" (1990-2021) by Mierle Laderman Ukeles and "Lerole: footnotes (The struggle of memory against forgetting)" (2018) by Dineo Seshee Bopape. As part of the KPMG-Kunsttag, the two artists will talk about their works, about commonalities regarding a planetary, feminist understanding of land, earth and soil and the related necessary healing processes of social, ecological, spiritual traumatas.

Dineo Seshee Bopape (b. 1981 in Polokwane, South Africa; lives and works in Johannesburg) explores memory and identity from a socio-political perspective in her dense, multi-sensory installations. She understands earth, land, soil, and their various derivatives as supra-temporal repositories and carriers for memories, histories, and expressions of personal and political identity.

Mierle Laderman Ukeles (b. 1939 in Denver, USA; lives and works in Jerusalem, New York City, and internationally) is an artist, feminist, activist, and the first and only artist-in-residence of the New York City Department of Sanitation since 1977. Since the publication of her iconic MANIFESTO FOR MAINTENANCE ART in 1969, she has consistently referenced the social and environmental aspect of care work and maintenance systems in our society through her collaborative long-term projects.

Moderated by Isabelle Malz, curator of the exhibition "Everyone Is an Artist. Cosmopolitan Exercises with Joseph Beuys" at K20.

The discussion will be held in English and will be broadcasted via the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen website, Facebook Live and Youtube on Wed, Aug 4, starting at 8 pm.

Equipped with cameras and ten computer workstations, the media workshop at K21 offers young visitors from the age of eight to high school the opportunity to experiment creatively with photography and video.

How do artists experience themselves and the world they live in? How do they express their experience in their works? At K21, you will explore new ways of interacting with the world and with images. At the same time, the artworks challenge you to ask yourselves: what matters in my life? What images affect me? How can I find and capture these images? How can I put myself and others in the limelight? To do this, you will learn photographic and cinematic techniques in the museum's exhibition spaces and in the open media workshop, and experiment with different possibilities of photography and video. Depending on whether you prefer the photo or the video camera, you can use your recordings to create a book or a video clip.
