How is art linked to science and scholarship? How are they distinct? In this series, fellows of the Graduiertenschule für die Künste und die Wissenschaften will invite guests to discuss their work. Depending on the participants involved, each evening will take on a different shape, with conversations, experimentation, interventions, music making, or speculation.

The artist Judith Raum (UdK Berlin), the historian Suzanne Marchand (author of “German Orientalism”) and the art historian Susanne Leeb discuss the colonial modernity of German-language archeology and orientalism: German orientalism – between colonial history and anti-bourgeois thinking.
