Kerstin Stakemeier
An Intrinsic Reality:
On Artistic Work vis-ā-vis Cultural History

In her lecture, Kerstin Stakemeier cites the works of Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz in exploring a political understanding of artistic work as exhumation. Completely eschewing nostalgia, she questions how figures of construction may be circumvented while simultaneously prevailing cultural histories are undermined. It is precisely within the ongoing crisis of capitalism since 2008, wherein its progress-centered order has stagnated, that cultural history has also emerged in an increasingly fragmented light.
Boudry/Lorenz place the focus of their "queer archaeology" on areas where the compulsions of dominant orders have been influential, yet without gaining the upper hand. Based on the artists' exhumation of an ever-varying historiography, the present day is traced as catastrophe and coercion against the backdrop of contemporary art.

Kerstin Stakemeier (b. 1975) studied political science and art history in Berlin and London. In 2009-2010 she was a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, and since 2012 she has been a junior professor at the cx centrum for interdisciplinary studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. She authors texts for various art publications, including Afterall, Springerin, and Artforum. In 2007/2008 Stakemeier initiated "Aktualisierungsraum" in Hamburg (together with Nina Köller), as well as exhibition projects at basso Berlin and Kunsthaus Bregenz (with Eva Birkenstock and Nina Köller), Staatsgalerie Stuttgart (with Anja Kirschner and David Panos), and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (with Sophie Goltz).
Her dissertation titled "Entkunstung - artistic models for the end of art" will be published in 2013 by PoLYpeN, b_books (Berlin).
