On Thursday 9th June 2022 at 10.00h photographer and author Steven Solbrig will give a zoom lecture for the seminar ‘Landscapes of Migration’ within the program of the Mehrdimensionale Strategien Klasse at Kunsthochschule Kassel.
Steven Solbrig (they/them) is a German artist with a specific interest in the underrepresentation of disabled people. Steven’s practice combines photography, performances, and lectures to address the social dimension of disability and the often overlooked aspects linked to ableism [relating a person's supposed physical-mental impairment to a general standard of physical-mental ability].
Solbrig is the author of several essays on disability justice and is also regularly invited as a speaker in current debates on the inclusion of people with disabilities. The meaningful contribution Solbrig’s work and practice add to the discussions on inclusion is also supported by their involvement at the Foundation University of Hildesheim where Steven teaches art and disability from the perspective of disability studies, among other topics.
The zoom-lecture, this time, will be in German and it can be accessed from 10.00h via this link: uni-kassel.zoom.us/j/9386281796
This event is open to art students and scholars of the Kunsthochschule Kassel as well as to other young art practitioners interested in this approach to art-making.
