Ann-Kathrin Eickhoff und Elisa R. Linn
Elisa R. Linn (Elisa Linn Roguszczak) is a writer, exhibition maker, and educator from Prenzlauer Berg based in Berlin. In her practice, she is concerned with politics of self-organization, representation and collectivity. She studied sociology, art history, visual culture and film studies as well as curatorial studies and is a graduate of the Whitney Independent Study Curatorial Program. Linn is doing her PhD in philosophy with Marina Gržinić at AdbK Vienna and has held the interim professorship of the chair of Art Theory and Mediation (Prof. Dr. Kerstin Stakemeier) at the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg for the summer semester 2022. In her research, she examines the impact of borders and “border thinking” on marginalized groups and how strategies of self-organization from below can dismantle them. Since August 2022 she is the Co-Director of the Halle für Kunst Lüneburg e.V. and teaches at the Leuphana University.
Linn has worked with The Kitchen, South London Gallery, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the National Gallery Prague among others.

Lecture by Chris Kraus
at 7:00 pm
Kelly Lake Store and Other Stories is an exploration Mexi- cali border culture, “participant” art, the romance of region- alism, and the relationship between art and real estate. As a writer and co-editor of the highly influential independent press Semiotext(e), Kraus continues to seamlessly blend the role of author, critic, and editor. Even before she wrote about border culture openly her writing occupied what Helen Stuhr-Rommereim called the ‘rare space where art, politics, theory and feelings are all tied up together be- cause, as she continually makes clear, they are always all tied up together.’
