Public International & Interdisciplinary Workshop: “Landscape & Largesse”

More information: Poster

Our interdisciplinary workshop aspires cross-disciplinary interaction with the aim of examining fundamental notions of socio-territorial belonging and inspiring novel forms of its imagination. What emancipatory/ liberating/ democratic potential may be found in the way the concept of landscape is treated? How does the notion of landscape allow us to include perspectives which overcome the monolithic (monocultural, monolingual) national ideal of community, and/or perspectives that include ideas like the common good and natural, non-human environments? How does the notion of landscape help us transform the notion of borders, particularly in the European context? How can we elaborate on the emerging notion of “landscape citizenship”? How does notion of landscape allow us to think new possibilities of (social and political) inclusivity and to think the issue of migration and immigration in more socially salient and relevant terms?


Organized by Dr. Anne-Christine Habbard (Lille University) and Prof. Dr. Britta Schneider (EUV)

The Desert as a screen to project on. Artistic research in illusionary landscapes. 

Installation, screening and public reading by Michael Disqué and Roman Ehrlich 

Michael Disqué and Roman Ehrlich set out to explore the landscape of the Andalusian movie set desert Tabernas in 2021. With their means of photography and literature, they are trying to bring forth both the underlying truths beneath the illusions created by all the movies (mainly Western) that have been shot there, as well as the underlying illusions beneath the self-images of the inhabitants of the place and those who are still operating an infrastructure that gives tourists of the region the opportunity to visit "authentic" Western villages, as they come to expect them from the movies. Disqué and Ehrlich will interview each other on the process of their respective approach to the gathered material and will give the audience insight into the current state of their work in a mixed-media installation, screening and public reading.
