  ACADEMY REMIX at Portikus

Städelschule, Frankfurt/Main, meets Missing Identity, Kosovo

Exhibition / Symposium

A year of intense artistic exchange between the 
cities of Prishtina and Frankfurt am Main now 
culminates in the project ACADEMY REMIX at 
Kunsthalle Portikus. The key issue: What is the 
future of the art academy? The artists involved 
will show new works and numerous international 
guest will contribute to the discussion about the 
future of art teaching. The speakers are:

Joseph Backstein, Ute Meta Bauer, Mehmet Behluli, 
Sokol Beqiri, Daniel Birnbaum, Saskia Bos, 
Ekaterina Degot, Branko Dimitrijevic, Okwui 
Enwezor, Bruce Ferguson, Teresa Gleadowe, 
Isabelle Graw, Maria Hlavajova, Ronald Jones, 
Katrin Klingan, Steven Henry Madoff, Joanna 
Mytkowska, Christa Näher, Dan Perjovschi,

Vidokle, Borut Vogelnik, Sislej Xhafa.

Students from the Missing Identity alternative 
art academy, the Contemporary Art Institute EXIT 
in Prishtina, and the Frankfurt Städelschule came 
together to develop individual art projects, 
which were then realized in Prishtina and 
Frankfurt/Main. After the presentation at the 
Museum of Kosovo, Prishtina earlier this fall, 
the final presentation of the project now takes 
place in Portikus im Leinwandhaus, Frankfurt/Main.

The presentation in Portikus brings both aspects 
of the ACADEMY REMIX together: The Kunsthalle is 
not only an exhibition space for the artists’ 
projects, but also the venue for the ACADEMY 

The symposium, which is held in English, deals 
with the methods, models and possibilities for 
art academies today and tomorrow. The discussion 
is divided into four main sections.

1) Paradigms in art teaching
2) The artist teacher and the art student
3) The art academy between international exchange and the local
4) What is artistic competence and how is it mediated
