With Mischa Leinkauf (Berlin) Dana Linssen (Amsterdam), film clips and slam poetry.


In collaboration with Interdisciplinary Arts (iArts Maastricht), Story-Line (Maastricht) and EuregioKultur, SCHUNCK is organizing a SCHUNCK Talk Extra on 17 September:

Europe and interventions in public space: a conversation between artist and filmmaker Mischa Leinkauf (Berlin) and film critic and philosopher Dana Linssen (Amsterdam). And: slam poets on Europe.

Mischa Leinkauf is part of the Berlin artist duo Wermke/Leinkauf. Their latest installation, 4.Halbzeit (The Fourth Half), recently on show in Ludwig Forum Aachen, investigates the phenomenon of fanatic football fans called “ultras” in the context of political revolts. On two colossal video walls, the artists show rousing “ultras” and their increasing influence in public space. The installation creates a strong physical and emotional experience that shakes the visitor.

4.Halbzeit (The Fourth Half) will be the starting point for the conversation between Mischa Leinkauf and Dana Linssen about Europe and the role of art and activism in public spaces.  They show filmclips and discuss the artistic means with which stories are told. They will also interact with the audience, which will partly consist of international students from Interdisciplinary Arts Maastricht.

Two poetry slammers from the Euregion scrutinize Europe in their own way.

Mischa Leinkauf has been creating interventions in public space since the beginning of the millenium. He explores and climbs restricted places, such as bridges, towers and borders, and documents this in a unique way: a homage to the freedom and beauty of public space.

The artist duo Wermke/Leinkauf gained international recognition in 2014 when they swapped the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge for white American ones. Was it a joke or a serious breach of security? New York was confused, the New York City Police felt embarrassed. In their documentary Symbolic Threats, they showed how the media and the public responded to this “terrorist threat” in New York City.

Dana Linssen (Amsterdam) is a philosopher, film critic of NRC Handelsblad, film curator and teacher at ArtEZ School of Acting. She received the Louis Hartlooper Prize for film journalism and the Silver Rosebud because of her great value for the Dutch film world.

This event is made possible in part by the Province of Limburg (NL) and Literarischer Sommer (DE)
