Spannungsübungen


The ICI-Series Spannungsübungen

In sports, “dream match“ refers to an encounter of two opponents in which a rare combination of competitiveness and difference promises a tantalizing game. With its series Spannungsübungen, the ICI aims at enabling such dream matches in the cultural and intellectual fields. The objective of this round table series is to address basic tensions of the present within a relaxed setting. The name “Spannungsübungen” refers to the inaugural core project “Tension/Spannung” of the Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry. It also aims at marking a divergence from mass media's stagings of tensions. Fundamental differences are to be displayed without dramatizing them, exploring ways of productively and playfully dealing with tensions. Last but not least, the name “Spannungsübungen” underlines the experimental character to which the ICI is committed.
