FLUX 2.0 c/o LICHTUNGEN Hildesheim
LICHTUNGEN Art Works
The FLUX Collective was invited to take part in the light art festival LICHTUNGEN from October 29 to November 1, 2015 in Hildesheim. The exhibition’s site were scattered around the city along the World Heritage Trail. The majority of the 46 installations were site-specific or site-adapted. All of them were dedicated to the leitmotif “Continuum” that linked the exhibition to the city’s jubiliee of 1200 years since it has been founded. The FLUX Collective was present with six positions and their friends – Andrea Thembie Hannig and Hartung and Trenz – who have been part of the first FLUX Project in September 2015 in Tunis.
LICHTUNGEN Curators’ Work
Oumayma Abdelhak and Souad Bellaaj were part of the curatorial team of LICHTUNGEN. Based on an international internship funded by the Goethe-Intitut Tunisia they spend four weeks in Hildesheim and supported the local team. They assisted selected artists in their set-up, shared the information and communication tasks and were part of the art mediation team.
A FLUX Talk was held at the “Kunstraum 53”, University-based curatorial lab. The FLUX Experience was presented with Support of Oumayma Abdelhak, Souad Bellaaj, Sara Förster, Aymen Gharbi, Astrid Hessen and Mari Lena Rapprich. Fokus of the discussion was the international co-operation of artists and curators.
FLUX Program and Process
At the “LICHTUNGEN Hub”, an international meeting of artists, curators and producers dedicated to light in fine arts, the FLUX Program and its results were presented by Astrid Hesse and Malika Touddimte, the project manager of the Goethe-Institut Tunisia. In their talk they reflected the process from the initial meeting during the Kulturakademie program via the co-working on the digital platform to the onsite work and presentations in September 2015 as first project of the new Kulturlabor of the Goethe-Institut Tunisia.
AT the HAWK (University of Applied Art and Science), Studies Lighting Design, where Lena Weisner und Liubov Moskivina study, they organized a workshop desdicated to the physical and technical properties of light and the way it relates to human visual perception. They amazed the FLUX Collective with their knowledge and their insights as well as with the exceptional qualitis of light.
