tinyMONDAY # 05: Mutations in Urban Development: Fungi as a Societal Agents and Generators of Ideas

in cooperation with KfW Stiftung

location: Online via Zoom

time: 19.00 h – 21.00 h

The potential of fungi is widely underestimated – as uncontrollable collaborators, they provide highly developed structures and thus open up practical and theoretical spaces for new conceptions. In fungal biotechnology, they have become research objects for sustainable building materials and at the same time help shape artistic experiments. What is the significance of fungi as a source of ideas for a sustainable and at the same time innovative future? And what perspectives do artistic impulses offer on scientific questions?

A conversation on the multifaceted significance of fungi, in which experts from art, architecture, biodiversity and science meet.

tinyMONDAY # 06: Busy Sculptures – wieviel Funktion verträgt die Skulptur?

In Kooperation mit Kulturmanagement & Wirtschaftsförderung der Stadt Offenbach am Main

Ort: Sommerbau des Mousonturms, Brüsseler Platz 3, 63067 Offenbach am Main

Zeit: 20.00 h - 21.30 h

Kunstgeschichtlich wurde die Grenze zwischen Kunst und angewandter Gestaltung immer wieder verhandelt. Sowohl Künstler:innen als auch Gestalter:innen und Architekt:innen definieren die Schnittstelle heute oft individuell und überschreiten scheinbare Grenzen spielerisch. Ob Wohnskulptur, aktivistische Kunstaktion oder soziale Plastik, es gibt zahlreiche Hybridformen und Positionen, die den klassischen Kunstbegriff hinterfragen, ausdehnen oder sogar auflösen.

Der tinyMONDAY im temporären „Sommerbau“ des Mousonturms im Offenbacher Kaiserleiviertel beschäftigt sich mit der Frage nach der Schnittstelle von Kunst und konkreter Anwendung. Wie funktional sind zeitgenössische künstlerische Positionen? Wie viel Funktion verträgt eine Skulptur? Über diese und ähnliche Fragen diskutieren Expert:innen, deren Praxis sich in der Grauzone zwischen Kunst und Funktionalität bewegt.

tinyMONDAY # 07: At the boundaries of growth, a new game begins.

Location: Metzlerpark of Museum Angewandte Kunst

Time 19.00 h – 21.00 h

German Language

Many of us have experienced new limitations over the past year. They point to an end and a new beginning. They awaken in us an appreciation of the small, the simple, the minimalised. In a social environment where populations and property prices continue to rise, we’re also increasingly seeing an inner desire for minimalism and renunciation. What does the increasing relevance of 'Tiny Living' tell us about the old game where there were no limits? What is the motivation behind people's decision to live in small spaces? And what sort of free spaces do we need for a meaningful life? tinyBE invites you to a lively discussion between experts from art and architecture, science and entrepreneurship.

tinyMONDAY # 08: circumSPACES – Reactions of organisms to the evolving living space

In cooperation with Museum Angewandte Kunst

Location: Metzlerpark of Museum Angewandte Kunst / vista 3,5°

Time: 19.00 h – 20.30 h

(German Language)

It is invisible climatic threats that are causing visible and tangible alterations to the living space that surrounds us. The term 'Anthropocene', introduced by Paul J. Crutzen, makes tangible the reciprocal relation between impacts and consequences of human recourse to terrestrial resources: none other than humans cause such cuts in the cycle of nature. But how does anthropogenic environmental impact change the appearance and understanding of the living space? What responses of organisms to rapid change are already apparent? What is 'living space' when this space is threatened, threatened to disappear, and survive in it becomes almost impossible in the future?

tinyMONDAY # 09: The cave as a place where humanity take a leap

In cooperation with Earnest & Algernon

Location: Metzlerpark of Museum Angewandte Kunst / vista 3,5°

Time: 17.30 h – 20.30 h

(German Language)

There is something mysterious about caves. They are a place for hiding, an adventure or a surprise. In the moment of surprise and wonder, we take a leap. What does the history of the cave tell us? What social leaps can be initiated, or reinforced, in its depths? And which caves do we possibly need today? At the final edition of tinyMONDAYS we invite you to a discussion where artistic, architectural and philosophical perspectives all come together. Starting with the Lascaux Cave and ending with the Tiny House, we wander through cultural history and illuminate the relevance of places below the (Earth's) surface for social leaps.
