Resident #2: Azadeh Sharifi

Young, Critical Views of the “Institution”

Every school year lab.Bode invites experts from different disciplines to interrogate the collections of the Bode-Museum from different perspectives. Artists, researchers, and practitioners are commissioned with finding new topics and questions, which are then added to the catalogue of potential topics and contribute new perspectives to this pool. To conclude their residencies, participants formulate a commentary, which they leave behind in the museum. Whether an intervention that is visible in the museum, a text, or an artistic format, these serve as starting points for the development of new school projects.
