ROUGH TRANSLATION. Language Arts between Exclusion and Solidarity


Contact: Monika Rinck
 
ROUGH TRANSLATION
Language Arts between Exclusion and Solidarity
 
The Intra-Project Rough Translation is a joint project by the Institutes of Language Arts and Transcultural Studies: Nanna Heidenreich, Viktoria Metschl, Monika Rinck, Gerhild Steinbuch.
 
This joint project by the Institutes of Language Arts and Transcultural Studies will explore the problematic issue of translation in relation to language as an artistic material and as a means of cognition in different academic and artistic discourses. At the same time, participative and performative settings will provide opportunities to experience the specific cognitive dimension of translation as an exercise in cheerful difference and as a path towards an ethics of listening, of unlearning, and of semantic smuggling.
 
The project is anchored at the Institute of Language Arts and at the Institute of Transcultural Studies. To do justice to our understanding of translation as something unfinished, a quality that allows it to make a political impact, we wish to develop a collective artistic and academic practice, also between teaching staff and students. An initial conference in April 2023 will feature contributions both from external scholars and artists and from students.
 
The main objective of this long-term project is to arrive at a shared practice that goes beyond the dream of complete, transparent translation to explore the fraught spaces between languages and speakers, and between language and its embodiment in space – artistically, politically, theoretically, performatively, incompletely, inventively.
 
More soon!
