A three day congress about culture, the everyday and politics in the rural

Antje was the artistic director of a multidisciplinary congress organised by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and it´s funding programme TRAFO.

The congress focused on cultural policy for the rural, addressing politicians, researchers, artists, and people working in administration and cultural institutions. Antje tried to foster permeable structures for bottom up conversation and exchange, and to turn attention to image policies and power relationships.

The congress worked with props and scenes to involve all guests in a collective action. While the objects served as conversation pieces, every speaker would choose from a pool of scenes to find the one he wanted to be on stage with.
