Do the walls have to be repainted?

Die Künstlerin und Kuratorin Claire Astier war bei uns im Mai und Juni 2021 zusammen mit Ahram Lee als Artist in Residence zu Gast. Sie ließ uns eine bei normaler Beleuchtung unsichtbare Arbeit zurück: mit einem Schwarzlicht-aktiven Stift hatte sie Wände und den Vorhang des FLORIDA beschrieben.

FLORIDA Winter [retrospective]: AiR und Care

Both formats – the AiR and the Care Online format – are related to questions that we as FLORIDA have been pursuing on different levels for quite a while now: How can we, as freelance artists working for little money in a Munich art space, question and improve existing conditions and structures under which artists and cultural workers are usually invited in the art and culture business. How can we mutually formulate realistic and reasonable expectations, how can good support and communication look like and a fair amount and way of compensation. We want to give ourselves the time it takes to develop more solidary forms of collaboration. This is work we will continue to do, if you have any tips or comments on this, feel free to send them our way.

in residence: Abeer Farhoud

Wir freuen uns, euch unsere derzeitige Residentin vorzustellen: Abeer Farhoud. Sie arbeitet seit Anfang März im FLORIDA an figurativen Gipsskulpturen bzw. Reliefs, die sich unter den Arbeitstiteln “Kids in War” (Kinder im Krieg) und “A wall in a dictator house” (Eine Wand im Haus des Diktators) mit den Themen Krieg und Tod, Macht und Ohnmacht auseinandersetzen.
We are pleased to introduce you to our current artist in residence: Abeer Farhoud. She has been working at FLORIDA since the beginning of March on figurative plaster sculptures or reliefs, which deal with the themes of war and death, power and powerlessness under the working titles “Kids in War” and “A wall in a dictator house”.

HALLO ENDE

Since an essential part of the work in FLORIDA can only take place to a very limited extent — the personal togetherness on site — we would like to promote mutual exchange/support in an experimental online format. For this purpose, we invite four participants to the respective dates to get to know each other and to jointly develop strategies for dealing with the ongoing uncertainties and threats. Invited are artists who, in various ways, are addressing the question of how one can create spaces/conditions that help others feel safe and comfortable. This online format aims to create just such a space for the guests.

in residence: @nnast_antn

During “lockdown light” winter FLORIDA will support artists within the frame of an residency, which offers time, money and space to the invited artists, to continue their ongoing practice. We are happy to introduce you to the first artist in residence, @nnast_antn, who will work at FLORIDA from mid December until end of January.

in Residence: Mirja Reuter

In October, Mirja Reuter will spend several weeks at FLORIDA in cooperation with Ruine München for a work residency. Mirja Reuter is an artist and art mediator. In her artistic cross-media work, she has been researching the problem of the female observer since Modernism and the themes of work and time.
