Das fliegende Klassenzimmer landet in M√ľnchen

Es freut mich Ihnen mitteilen zu k√∂nnen, dass die Klasse Schneider Berlin mit seinem fliegenden Klassenzimmer nun an die Akademie der Bildenden K√ľnste M√ľnchen als Klasse Schneider M√ľnchen verpflanzt wird.

Im Rahmen Gregor Schneiders fliegendem Klassenzimmer im Fachbereich Bildhauerei wurden in drei Jahren vielfältige Vorhaben realisiert. Thema der Klasse ist das transportable mobile Klassenzimmer.

Das mobile fliegende Klassenzimmer sollte verschiedene Orte in der Welt mit der UdK verbinden. Der Raum sollte eine Plattform sein f√ľr Studenten, ein Klassenzimmer, ein Raum f√ľr Experimente und Forschung, sowie ein grenz√ľberschreitender Ausstellungsraum, in dem k√ľnstlerische Praxis selbsterziehend experimentiert wird.

R√§ume sind Schwerpunkt Gregor Schneiders eigener k√ľnstlerischer Arbeit. Nach einer Ausstellung in der Kunsthalle Bremerhaven, mit eigens entwickelter Raumarchitektur, Aufenthalt und Ausstellung in Bahrain, Ausstellung in einem mobilen Containerlager, Klassentausch mit der Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden K√ľnste Stuttgart und diversen Diskussionen und Besuchern von renommierten Ausstellungskuratoren bekommt Gregor Schneider nun die M√∂glichkeit sein Programm an der Akademie der Bildenden K√ľnste M√ľnchen fortzuf√ľhren.

Gregor Schneider ist davon √ľberzeugt, dass eine Kunstakademie ein Ort sein kann, an dem junge Kunststudenten/Kunststudentinnen selbsterziehend zu ihrer eigenen k√ľnstlerischen Arbeit finden k√∂nnen. Dabei kann die Kunstakademie gerade heute ein Freiraum sein, der gerade nicht willf√§hrige Galleriek√ľnstler oder Marionetten der Ausstellungskuratoren produziert, sondern vielmehr starke und unabh√§ngige K√ľnstlerpers√∂nlichkeiten schafft.

Das setzt nat√ľrlich voraus, dass auch eine Kunstakademie als Institution nicht st√§rker wird, als deren Inhalt.
Gregor Schneider hat sich im Fachbereich Freie Kunst verst√§rkt f√ľr den Erhalt der freien Fachklassen und f√ľr die St√§rkung der K√ľnstler an der Universit√§t der K√ľnste eingesetzt.

Auftakt seiner T√§tigkeit in M√ľnchen wird eine Ausstellung zusammen mit M√ľnchener und Berliner Studenten/Studentinnen sein, welche unter dem Titel Doublings in der Kunsthalle Berlin am Hamburger Platz im Dezember 2012 er√∂ffnet wird.

This program is intended to be the first step of an open dialogue process which will be also bring over the next year the Bahraini students involved in the project to Berlin in order to continue the exchange and to be exposed to one of the most important artistic and cultural environment for the contemporary art practices.

About the lecture by Professor Gregor Schneider
Thursday 9th December at 7 pm
Al Riwaq Art Space
This event is free and open to the public

Professor Gregor Schneider will be giving a lecture entitled "Black Cube - Is a Cube just a Cube?" on Thursday 9th December at 7 pm; the event is free and open to the public.
During the talk the Professor will be discussing about the concept of his installation "Cube Venice 2005".
Gregor Schneider was born in 1969 in Rheydt, Germany. He has always been interested in the relation between constructed and individual space.
Among his numerous exhibitions, he held solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle in Hamburg (2003), at the MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (2004), the Museum de Arte Contemporanea de Serralves in Oporto (2005), and the Morra Greco Foundation in Naples (2006). Among his group shows: in 2005 at the MMK Museum f√ľr Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, in 2007 with "Into Me/Out of Me" at the PS1 in New York, at the KW in Berlin, and with "La citta che sale. We try to build the future" as part of MACRO FUTURE (2007-2008). He was also present at the 1st Biennial of Athens (2007). In 2001 Gregor Schneider won the Golden Lion prize for the best national participation at the 49th Venice Biennale.

About the exhibition Minimal/Maximal
Saturday 12th December at 7 pm - Wednesday 12th January
Al Riwaq Art Space
This event is free and open to the public

The exhibition presents the works of 24 international students coming from the sculpture class of the artist and professor Gregor Schneider, Universit√§t der K√ľnste, Berlin (Germany), together with a contribution of the same artist.
The exhibition "Minimal/Maximal" is based on the concept of maximal effects being reached through minimal causes. The tension between minimal and maximal has been explored from all angles, from formal or concrete to more conceptual or abstract solutions.
This concept 'Minimal/Maximal` arises from thoughts concerning content as also pragmatism: the tension between mass reduction and spacial extention represents on one hand a device to deal with space, on the other hand a stategy to minimalise transport costs and geographical distance.
The exhibition will open on the 11th of December at 19 pm at Al Riwaq Art Space and will be running through Wednesday 12th January.

Participating artists: Emma Bj√∂rnespaar; Katja Burlyga; Miriam Christof; Lara Dorsett; Lonny Fechner; L√©a Gilloire; Lola G√∂ller; Sandra Krause Gomez; David Iselin-Ricketts; David Kr√∂ll; Simon Jung; Mari Matsutoya; Christoph Medicus; Alessandro Reichmann; Ricarda von Ribbek; Lysander Rohringer; Francisco Rozas; Mike Ruiz; Fiene Scharp; Gregor Schneider; Gon Seok; Lidia Sigle; Diana Sirianni; Flavia Spichtig; Luca Vanello; What¬īs
