Camping Akademie e.V.
Since 2008, Camping Akademie e.V. by the two Berlin based artists Christine Falk (painting) and Alfred Banze (media art) makes participatory art projects. Without a fixed location, they develop thematic exhibitions, symposia, workshops, talks and performances with and for participating artists in Berlin and worldwide, often in emerging and developing countries. Since 2004 they make art projects in Thailand. For the Bangkok Biennial, Camping Akademie e.V. will present the project BANGKOK BY BUS - A participatory intermedia project.
"Art / Community / Art", the subtitle of a symposium in May 2018 in Berlin with artists from Asia, America, Africa and Europe brings together all central topics of the Camping Akademie e.V.: How can "community-based art" work, what are the limits? Is it possible to develop self-sufficient modes of production and presentation and to maintain them in the long term? Are art production and perception regionally or hierarchically bound, or is transfer between cultures and social levels possible and meaningful?
Alfred Banze & Christine Falk
BANGKOK BY BUS takes place in various temporary locations in Bangkok, which will be announced later.
