Tischgesellschaft “Vom Hörensagen”, 14.09.2024, Kampnagel Hamburg

Under the label “Tischgesellschaften”, Antje Pfundtner, Anne Kersting and Hannah Melder founded an artistic gathering initiative in 2018 to share ideas, knowledge and resources and invited both artists and audiences across Germany to discuss the increasingly urgent question that affects far more than just art: How do we share ideas, money and stage? Since then, the Tischgesellschaften have served as a nationwide exchange of artistic, structural and economic ideas on sharing practices, with the aim of promoting the sustainable positioning and involvement of artists in cultural policy and discussing best-practice models of resource sharing with and for the public.

We never tire of the question of sharing and are organizing our last (publicly funded) Tischgesellschaft on Saturday, September 14.

How does sharing inspire us when we look at it from the perspective of generosity? What is needed, where are the burning issues, what ideas can we pool in order to spread them further at the same time? Our Tischgesellschaft “Vom Hörensagen” accepts rumors, divinations, speculations, experiments, theories and magic tricks on the subject of generosity and hopefully plenty of them. Whether generous, vehement or redundant, why not solemnly shoot and scatter your pooled powder!

Long-time companions in resource issues, Kampnagel visitors, colleagues, all those people who are interested in practices of generous utilization, sharing, redistribution and waste will be there.

We will inform you about the exact program in the course of the summer, but this much is clear: We will open the doors at noon and have time until late in the evening to generously decorate and fill the space with ideas, people, resources and the desire to share.
