"Track Academy" is a series of discursive programs combining scientific, artistic and educational formats. It creates communicative situations through the temporal and spatial condensation of the different activities, allowing for broader scopes of interaction and activation of specific knowledge. The themes "Track Academy" tackles derive from the exhibition program of the Kunstverein in 2017. They address contemporary challenges such as digitalization and networking, urbanity and urban development as well as migration and diversity.
Track_1 Divided World: International circulation, practices of mobility and the production of the city
In the current exhibition at Kunstverein Hamburger Bahnhof (open till 12 February), British artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas develops with his technology start-up New Eelam a prospective living concept for the creative class, which travels from one job or project to another and changes locations of residence nomadically. Simultaneously, worldwide refugee movements, immigration, mass housing and the return of national rhetorics dominate the media. How do these realities relate to one another? How do they depend upon each other and how do they shape the development of urban cohabitation?
