Language in Art and DesignSeminar
In this practical seminar we looked at language in contemporary artistic and design positions and explored questions of how language affects identity, power and gender. Through works such as those by Nora Turato, Hanne Lippard and Ming Wong, we analysed our social forms of articulation, linguistic coding, language on the web and the associated gender-specific role attributions, and examined how language can be transformed, decoupled, recontextualised and rethought in art and design.
In her audio and video installations, Silke Schwarz deals with social forms of articulation, linguistic coding, language on the net and normative role attributions. She completed her BA in Visual Communication at the UdK Berlin in 2013 and then continued her studies at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig. In 2018, she returned to the UdK Berlin for a „Meisterschüler-Studium“ in Art and Media and was a scholarship holder of the Goldrausch funding programme Berlin in the same year.
The seminar was supported by the Women's Representative of the Faculty of Design.
