Double Feature: Matylda Krzykowski & Maria Inés Plaza Lazo: Feuerproben

19. November 2020  @ 19:00 21:00 CET

Matyl­da Krzykows­ki is a design­er and cura­tor focus­ing on col­lab­o­ra­tive and per­for­ma­tive projects in phys­i­cal and dig­i­tal space. Krzykowski’s work is intro­spec­tive, as it explores and exper­i­ments with the inner mech­a­nisms of design, art, and archi­tec­ture. As such, her projects dis­sect the design process to its dif­fer­ent stages—from mate­r­i­al and per­son­al ori­gins, to method­olo­gies and edu­ca­tion; from net­works to social pro­jec­tions, and the spec­trum in between. With a strong per­spec­tive on trans­dis­ci­pli­nar­i­ty as a dis­ci­pline, her work with­in these ques­tions explores not only con­tent but also form, for which artis­tic links are made. Among oth­ers, her tools of explo­ration have includ­ed instal­la­tions, scenog­ra­phy, art direc­tion, chore­og­ra­phy, reportage, TV game shows, the­ater, and inno­v­a­tive and exper­i­men­tal for­mats that range from exhi­bi­tions and work­shops to inter­ven­tions and talks.

María Inés Plaza Lazo lives and works as an art crit­ic and cura­tor between Berlin and the streets of the world. She pub­lish­es Arts of the Work­ing Class togeth­er with Paul Sochac­ki and Ali­na Kolar, a mul­ti-lin­gual street jour­nal on pover­ty and wealth, art and soci­ety. Arts of the Work­ing Class is pub­lished every two months and con­tains con­tri­bu­tions by artists and thinkers from dif­fer­ent fields and in dif­fer­ent lan­guages. Its terms are based upon the work­ing class, mean­ing every­one, and it reports every­thing that belongs to every­one. Every­one who sells this street jour­nal earns mon­ey direct­ly. Ven­dors keep 100% of the sales. Every artist whose work is adver­tised, designs its sub­stance with the mag­a­zine.
