This Civil Wilderness refers as much to a defined geo-location as it is dedicated to concepts, loosely linked with an academic institute of the Carl-von-Ossietzky-University in Oldenburg, the “Institut für Kunst und visuelle Kultur”, by means of an example and within a network of cooperations. https://uol.de/kunst, https://uol.de/en/school3/institute-of-art-and-visual-culture

This Civil Wilderness #23 has been conceived on the occasion of “QUE(E)RULIERT! Praktiken des Störens in Kunst / Medien / Wissenschaft”, online conference July 2-3, 2021, curated by Oliver Klaassen and Lena Radtke from the aforementioned institute: “Die Tagung lädt dazu ein, das Que(e)rulieren als künstlerische sowie kunst- und medienwissenschaftliche Praxis und (Forschungs-)Haltung positiv um- und neuzubesetzen.” / “The conference invites to positively reassign and recast que(e)rulation as an artistic as well as art- and media-studies practice and (research-)attitude.”

The reputed past of the institute as a hotspot of Geschlechterforschung – gender and queer studies and art – its potential future too, is subject of this Civil Wilderness. What happens under current and upcoming changes of political ‘climate’, turning against so called ‘genderism’ today? Is it possible to document changes with on-site observations, oral history, statistics or else? The non-permanent panel “Civil Wilderness, Hier gelten keine Verbote.” (No prohibitions apply here.) has been placed for the time being in a garden, surrounded by teaching and working facilities.
