Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) creates a forum for the contemporary arts and critical debates. In the midst of profound global and planetary transformation processes, HKW re-explores artistic positions, scientific concepts, and spheres of political activity, asking: How do we grasp the present and its accelerated technological upheavals? What will tomorrow’s diversified societies look like? And what responsibilities will the arts and sciences assume in this process? HKW develops and stages ...

At the center of current political storms is the issue of climate change, suggests sociologist and epistemologist Bruno Latour. He reflects on current geopolitical conditions while underlining their intricate link to migrations, the explosion of injustice under the neoliberal regime and the panic-fueled return to nationalist egoisms. In his Anthrop…
 
Class compromise defuses class contradictions, and thus attenuates social antagonisms. Does the termination of class compromise and the crisis of the welfare state inevitably entail a renaissance of racist exclusion patterns? And what about societies where class compromise has never been as important as in Europe? A critical theory of racism must t…
 
Spatial segregation was a hallmark of racism during apartheid in South Africa. As a historical form, apartheid was fought and overcome, yet racist structures continue to manifest themselves spatially in countries throughout the world. In recent years, government responses to urban unrest in France, the US, and elsewhere have exposed how much state …

Class and class politics are not the same. There is a need to ask when and under what conditions class politics is effective. It cannot simply be conceived as dependent on the presence and activity of specific organizations (political parties or unions) capable of producing a particular class identity. Today, some of the most important moments in c…

In their chapter on The Historical Nation, Balibar and Wallerstein work out how racism emerges in connection with the constitution of the classes, thus ensuring social stratification. Nationalism, in turn, mobilizes society to demarcate the state in contrast to others and to enforce imperialist strategies. How do we read this analysis in our curren…

Bartleby “preferred not to” – and at the end of Herman Melville’s story starves to death. To what extent is his motto still an option today – in light of precarious living conditions on the one hand and the imperative of digital production, consumption, and marketing conditions on the other? Does the insistence on non-participation inevitably lead …
 
No Fun, No Feelings, No Future – Punk has specialized in saying No through music. As an angry rejection of the establishment, Punk demonstrates the refusal to work and a radical independence, both destructive nihilism and an activist DIY culture – and above all an attitude, a principle, maybe even a strategy. Can this principle be generalized, or d…
 
Duration: approx. 90minThe readymade was originally conceived by Marcel Duchamp as a strategy that would run counter to the logic of the market and jeopardize any (economic) value. However, in the further career of the concept, the idea of a transfer from the everyday context into an art context became a paradigm for value creation. Therefore, the …
 
Duration: approx. 90minImplicit in the readymade is an act of defamiliarization—an unexpected encounter with something that might be commonplace in another context. But equally essential, for the history of art, is the frame of authorship. Given the growing economic significance of copyright and other forms of intellectual property, it is important…

Postwar Landscapes- After the Wildly Improbable: Adania ShibliRailway infrastructures have repeatedly played a role in wartime and postwar landscapes acting as a grid for contradictory movements, such as gatherings, connectivity, dispersal, and division.

Trains in the Past, Tracks in the Present- After the Wildly Improbable: Adania ShibliIn parts of Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria, the initial functions of certain sections of the Ottoman Railway Network have been elapsed by mechanical decay, types of vegetation, and human activity.

The realm of writing has never been so extensive; nor has the idea of publication ever been so plural. Not a day passes without a great percentage of humanity publishing one or numerous texts: on a blog, a social media network, or elsewhere. A two-day program of performative live publishing will celebrate this emerging sphere with talks and convers…
 
The presentation revolves around two connected works: Come Cannibalize Us, Why Don’t You? and Apa Jika, The Mis-placed Comma. Both projects discuss practices of collecting and display in the context of colonial and post-colonial museums and explore possible points of re-entry for the fugitive or rogue object. Come Cannibalize Us, Why Don’t You? is …
 
Scott's “anarchist” history of Southeast Asia’s upland peoples highlights the dynamics of flight, as a defense against the rationalization and encompassment wrought by modern states. As a political geography, Zomia may be no more, yet that fugitive logic has survived its historical moment. Where might we look today for the modes of withdrawal, and …
 
“Zomia,” the designation invented by Willen van Schendel for the portion of upland Southeast Asia that has, until recently, evaded incorporation into nation states and empires, could metaphorically be extended to other areas of the world that have become zones of state evasion. In his lecture, Scott explores some of these zones in Southeast Asia an…
