Announcement of the exhibition “Got something to say about Europe?”
arkadenale. got something to say about Europe?
Since 2015 a theme-specific exhibition – arkadenale – has been held in the Kunstarkaden every two years.
This year everything revolves around the theme of the European Union.
In the municipal art space „Kunstarkaden“, Sparkassenstraße 3, Munich
As a forum for artistic experimentation, as a platform for contemporary art, and as a place for dialogically conceived projects the Kunstarkaden support young Munich-based artists with different cultural backgrounds in group exhibitions. The artworks are staged and presented in interaction with the spatial conditions of the Kunstarkaden.
The Kunstarkaden additionally promote the artists with publications about the exhibitions and thus ensure a lasting impression.
Got something to say about Europe?
According to Greek legend, Zeus, who had transformed himself into a bull, abducted a Phoenician princess to the island of Crete. There she gave birth to three children and the continent where they lived got her name: Europe.
Often, when people talk about "Europe", they are actually talking about the "European Union”. This fact alone suggests that this subject area is highly complex. Political and economic interests give rise to an entity that is not exactly easy to comprehend.
After World War II, several states formed an alliance that has expanded over the years. The primary goals were the preservation of peace and the promotion of the economy. With the Maastricht Treaty in 1992, the foundation of the European Union was signed. Today, the EU has 27 member states. Human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights are values on which the EU is founded.
But what is the EU to you? From your artistic perspective?
For the exhibition 27 artists are invited to the Kunstarkaden to artistically express their thoughts and ideas on this topic. Each artist will be represented with one artwork.
Opening: October 5, 2021
Duration: until December 18, 2021

Finding Your Creative Voice Masterclass
For artists of all levels, this session will help you to identify and strengthen your creative voice (incl. distinct artistic style, niche, voice, authenticity and story). Your creative voice allows people to connect and find value in your work to purchase it or to make more of it. The stronger your creative voice the more likely you are to get opportunities including sales, licencing agreements, exhibitions, shows and gallery representation. It is vitally important that Artists communicate in a consistent manner across their business – from the website, to statement, to social media to live events. This practical session will fall into two parts:
This session will last for 1hr 30 minutes and will include an opportunity for Rosalind to answer any questions that members may have.

Each year, the Academy invites international artists, curators, collectives, educators, scholars and writers to serve as instructors for its course-programme. In 2021, we are pleased to offer courses under the instructorship of Rossella Biscotti (Italy/Belgium), Cäcilia Brown (France/Austria) / Anna Hofbauer (Switzerland/Austria) / Mikkel Holm Torp (Denmark/Italy), Cosmin Costinaş (Romania/Hong Kong) / Inti Guerrero (Colombia/Hong Kong), Anna Daučiková (Slovakia/Czech Republic), Shezad Dawood (United Kingdom), Christina Dimitriadis (Greece/Germany), Louisa Elderton (United Kingdom/Germany) / Klaus Speidel (Germany/Austria), Léuli Eshrãghi (Australia/Canada), Flaka Haliti (Kosovo/Germany), Ho Tzu Nyen (Singapore) with Jan Gerber / Sebastian Lütgert (Germany), Nadira Husain (France/Germany) / Flora Klein (Switzerland/Germany), Leon Kahane (Germany), Wasif Munem (Bangladesh), Christian Nyampeta (Ruanda/USA), Shubigi Rao (Singapore), ruangrupa (Indonesia/Germany), Francis Ruyter (USA/Austria).
At the Academy, instructors translate their practice and research into a pedagogical relationship with
participants, in order to explore contemporary art practices in mutually interrogative, personal and
persistent ways. Conversations are undertaken with a view toward materializing art-related ideas or
transmit them into research and life. The programme reflects current trends in contemporary art such as
performance and poetics (Eshrãghi, Nyampeta), VR/AR animation/algorithms (Dawood, Ho),
archiving (Kahane, Munem, Ruyter) and collective/community-oriented practices (ruangrupa) as well
as methodological approaches to decoloniality (Costinaş/Guerrero, Husain/Klein, Rao), eco-criticism
(Biscotti, Haliti) and (queer-) feminism (Daučiková, Dimitriadis) in art.
