Rehearsing Research -Sung Tieu

Kunst- und Kulturwissenschaften

In conversation with Sung Tieu.
Invited by Miram Stoney within the lecture series of the Master of Critical Studies. Coordinated by Jackie Grassmann and Leonie Huber.

Continuing last year’s lecture series, students of the Master in Critical Studies invite different actors from the cultural field to give an insight into their practices and engage in collective discussion. In focus are artistic practices and critical inquiries that scrutinise alternative and oppositional modes of knowledge production and rehearse a non-complicit positioning beyond articulations of the commodity form.

The talk will take place online and in English. It is open to the public. Due to limited capacity, please register in advance until the day before: .

We are in conversation with Sung Tieu, who will talk about her recent work on technologies of psychological warfare and the semantic dimensions of immigration bureaucracies, as presented in two concurrent solo exhibitions last year: Zugzwang at Haus der Kunst, Munich and In Cold Print at Nottingham Contemporary. Drawing on both extensive archival and autobiographical material, Tieu discusses the relationship between the personal, different modes of research and their fracturing through art and exhibition-making.

Sung Tieu is an artist based in London and Berlin. Forthcoming solo exhibitions include Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig and Kunstmuseum Bonn (both in DE, 2021). Forthcoming group exhibitions are for refusal at Transmediale (DE, 2021); Ars Viva 2021 at Kunstverein Hannover (DE, 2021); INFORMATION (Today) at Kunsthalle Basel (CH, 2021); Taipei Fine Arts Museum (TW, 2021) and T hough It’s Dark, I Still Sing , curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, 34th Bienal de São Paulo (BR, 2021).
