The motto of the xhbit format’s exhibition program for 2019 is “Artistic Investigations into Economies of Knowledge.” The issue of education and, thus, of knowledge has again and again been in the focus of recent discussions against the background of radically changing political cultures, discourses, and contexts. This raises questions concerning the significance of the generation, communication and transfer of knowledge in the field of artistic practice. How do forms of artistic research, artistic practices, and teaching methods become manifest in economies of knowledge? How can they reflect these critically and contribute to the transfer of knowledge and the education of society at the same time? The three projects selected by the Academy’s Exhibition Committee for 2019 explore these questions and related issues from different points of view.
