Taswir Projects

Taswir Projects House of Taswir, a.k.a. Taswir projects is an international platform for artistic research and diasporic thinking founded by Shulamit Bruckstein.
(1)

Taswir promotes free association of artifacts and positions across disciplines and across geographies. TASWIR projects is a platform for artistic research and diasporic thinking. It works with a loosely associated faculty, creates its own topography, and develops the TASWIR atlas, an atlas of varying indefinite relations between artifacts and things, positioned through poetic documentation and artistic research.

Mission: Through the invention of TASWIR specific methods of research, thinking, curating, documentation and interaction we create unexpected epistemic ways of connecting and interweaving positions, artifacts, and things. We offer thinkers, artists, curators, and other creative individuals, as well as cultural institutions time to think with us together about non-territorial and a-linear paths of knowledge and how to display them publically.

Walid Raad: "Sweet Talks"
Sfeir-Semler Gallery Hamburg

Another letter to the reader, 2015

"Sometime in late 1914, Young Turk Minister of War Enver Pasha ordered the storage of hundreds of Iznik motifs to protect them from war-time damage. The motifs were crated, boxed and stored in various banks’ vaults in Istanbul. Little did anyone suspect that the motifs somehow managed to sneak out during the war, leaving behind the safety of their shields. While most government officials accused the motifs of treason and subversion, and sought to bring them before the Turkish courts-martial of 1919-1920, few realized that the motifs had actually left their containers looking for the blue, green, and red colors that had long abandoned them."

The show Walid Raad: "Sweet Talks" is extended until February 19th. We hope that the gallery can re-open after the end of the lockdown on January 30th.

ANNA M. SCHAFROTH (1961-2021)

unsere große Freundin, Gelehrte, Mitbegründerin vom House of Taswir, langjährige Weggefährtin unserer künstlerischen Forschung, Beraterin unserer internationalen Ausstellungen, Kunsthistorikerin, Autorin, Kuratorin, internationale Klee Spezialistin und Expertin der europäischen Modernen, die mit ihren tief recherchierten Ausstellungen und zahlreichen Büchern so viele Nachlässe von Künstlern dem Vergessen entzogen hat, Anna Schafroth, die mich 2003 im Berner Kunstmuseum durch ihre poetische Präzision ein Denken in der Kunst gelehrt hat – Anna Schafroth ist vorgestern Abend, am 10. Januar, in Bern nach schwerer Krankheit verstorben.

*

Meine liebe Freundin, Du hast so fein, so unerschrocken, so überaus mutig das Prekäre mit Geist und Stoff versehen, so kraftvoll, konzentriert, immer weiter, offen, längst nicht fertig.

*

Rest in Power, Anna M. Schafroth.  Du und Deine Werke haben hier noch Zukunft. Wir lassen sie nicht los. Möge Deine Seele glücklich sein.

TISCH University ready for its next session. Can't wait for it to continue. 💥💥 Next table with Prof. Elad Lapidot on the "talmudic way of thinking and "Jews out of the Question." (Waiting)

@house_of_taswir @eladlapidot #talmud #tisch #diasporic #thinking #university #analogue #smallissexy #privateisthenewpublic #community #lehrhaus #houseofstudy

The TISCH University is a collective research experiment, a self-authorized house of learning in the environment of a salon, an analogue, spontaneous, private, continuous place of higher learning, trans-disciplinary to begin with, a crossover of fields, tracing knowledge from outside in, margins to the center, associative, with no beginning nor end,  yet producing materials with the precision of an architect: artistic, psychoanalytic, poetic, textual, and more.

The TISCH University is an active response to the disappearing university, to the arbitrary totality of digital knowledge, to its dissipating clouds, its distanced zoomed seminars, its eroding eroticism, to the boredom of preconceived curricula. It allows for intelligence, resistance, critique, and brilliance, it celebrates its own kind of jouissance, and shares its sense of freedom between scholars, artists, students, guests.

The TISCH University is founded by Shulamit Bruckstein with members of House of Taswir. It gathers a quorum of scholars and students around a private table in Berlin Charlottenburg  otherwise used for family affairs and for Shabbat feasts. The TISCH overlaps four “fields of knowledge”: Art Theory, Talmud, Ethnology, Psychoanalysis, fields which are themselves standing up for interrogation, as they might not exist to begin with.

Venue:  House of Taswir, Schillerstraße
Berlin Charlottenburg.

Waiting for the table to resume.

Raziye Kubat's Story of Yussuf consists of a series of about 55 single works and an artist book.

Six works of the series are part of Meine Kleine Mnemosyne in Berlin since 2015.

"Im Faschismus werden die Madonnen mit Netzen überworfen. Mit Fangnetzen, die sie ans Geld binden, mit Guillochen, die sie an einen bestimmten Blick binden, an den ökonomisierenden Blick, den Entrechtungsblick, den expropriierenden, annektierenden Blick.

Den Abstand inszenieren – den Raum vorstellbar machen – zwischen den Skulpturen des Mittelalters, dem Einmarsch in Polen 1938 und der kunsthistorischen Ostforschung als imperialistische Inszenierung einer imaginierten deutschen kulturellen Überlegenheit.”

Joseph Sasson Semah at Kunstmuseum Den Haag 🤩

Lang geleden was Bagdad een stad van vrede en verdraagzaamheid. In de Projectenzaal van het Kunstmuseum bracht Joseph Sassoon Semah (1948, Bagdad) voor het eerst in één ruimte 36 architecturale modellen bijeen die samen een beeld geven van deze verloren stad; Bagdad in de jaren 20 en 30 van de vorige eeuw. “Het was een fantastische plek om te zijn”, aldus de kunstenaar. “Joden, christenen, moslims en ook seculaire mensen leefden er in harmonie.” Niet voor niets heet zijn tentoonstelling ‘Over Vriendschap…’.

Studio Roodenburch interviewde in opdracht van het Kunstmuseum Joseph Sassoon Semah en conservator Marek Wieczorek in deze stad.

Sherif El-Azma, last remaining member of the Cairo Psycho-Geography of Loose Associations. What is it all about? The future of Oh Father of Youths. Photo: Di Mackey. Courtesy Taswir projects.

Sherif El-Azma’s work questions the ready inscription of tradition upon and through #media language, particularly its Egyptian variants, and is keen to understand how history is layered through representations of #city space. For the past few years, Sherif El Azma has been contributing to an evolving and collaborative project entitled The Psycho-Geography of Loose Associations which weaves its way through text, #photography, #diary entries, diagrams, #fiction, #video footage and the informational #lecture format. Of central concern within this work are the social dynamics, modes of cultural integration and organisational systems operating within #cosmopolitan environments, particularly those of Cairo s new quarters.

El Azma’s work has been shown at institutions and events as varied as: the Venice Biennial (Egypt Pavilion), the Camden Arts Centre, Ashkal Alwan and the Zico House, Beirut, HAU Berlin, Witte De Witte Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, Townhouse Gallery, Cairo, Meeting Points Festival, Brussels, Bethanien, Berlin, the Alexandria Library, the Modern Art Museum, Kiel and the Contemporary Image Collective, Cairo. El Azma worked with Nermine El-Ansari on a contribution to the Transit 1 show at the Museo Madre, Naples and his work was part of the Taswir exhibition at Gropius-Bau, Berlin and the  Sharjah Biennial 9, Something Else - Off Biennial Cairo, a.o.
