On Thursday, November 24, 7 pm, there will be another discussion and exchange of ideas with guests on the occasion of the anniversary year of the Sitterwerk Foundation, as well as within the framework of the current exhibition Werkstoffperspektiven (Material Perspectives). Following the events “Between Pixel and Print” and “Between Cabinet of Curiosities and Storage Site,” this is now a third occasion on which the themes of the Material Archive are the focus. 

The guests for the evening are Christoph Flury, executive manager of the MATERIAL ARCHIV network, Michaela Reichel, Director of the Textilmuseum St. Gallen, Lutz Dickmann, head of the MaterialSTUDIO project at the Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart and his associate Denise Madsack.

They will start the evening with presentations of their ongoing collection projects for mediating knowledge about materials. This will then be followed by a discussion of questions about these activities and the various forms of organization in exchange with the audience. 

The exhibition as well as the Material Archive, Art Library, and the Kesselhaus Josephsohn will remain open until the beginning of the event. After the conclusion of the discussion, there will be aperitifs and time for a further exchange of ideas.

All speeches will be held in German.
