You are cordially invited to the presentation and reading of the new Scriptings issue #33:
"Seit ich die Sprache lerne, die ich spreche" by Christine Lemke
TIME Doors 8.00 pm / Reading 8.30 pm DATE Thursday 16th of January 2014 PLACE Scriptings / Kamerunerstr.47 / 13351 Berlin
The reading will be in German. In her literary essay “Seit ich die Sprache lerne, die ich spreche” Christine Lemke takes her job as a German teacher in so called "Integrationskurse/integration-courses" for immigrants as a starting point to reflect on the ideological implications and pedagogic procedures of learning a language within an overdetermined state controlled setting. Christine Lemke is an artist and writer living in Berlin. In her videos, publications and readings she works with various types of text/image constellations, using the occurring media gap to explore cultural and historical stereotypes as well as inherent personal and political narratives. Latest exhibitions of Lemke include: Mathew Gallery, Berlin; Heidelberger Kunstverein and DIVUS, Prague. Please see for further information:
