Talk at Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg

Symposium The Creative Blur. Between Design Practice and Design in the Museum on the occasion of the retirement of Sabine Schulze, curated by Tulga Beyerle.
Why do we collect and for whom? How can we have an impact on society with our work? In recent years we have systematically reactivated our historical holdings by juxtaposing selected items with contemporary positions, as well as responding to current social issues in special exhibitions that take a critical look at today’s consumer society. On the occasion of the pending change of directors, we want to discuss with experts from the field of design the issues they face in their daily practice. The goal is to determine what an institution like our museum can contribute to their work, both by going “back to the roots” and by asking questions about the future. We are looking forward to inspirational discussions with, among others, Cecilia León de la Barra, Jan Boelen, Daniel Charny, Aric Chen, Konstantin Grcic, Mathias Hahn, Ineke Hans, Fons Hickmann, Axel Kufus, Julia Lohman, Angelika Nollert, Robert Stadler and Judith Seng.

Dates: 18.10. – 19.10. 2018
At: Symposium – The Creative Blur
Location: Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg

ACTING THINGS VII at 4th Istanbul Design Biennial

School of fluid measures. Learning should be less about knowing or memorising what something is than understanding how it continuously changes in relation to something else. At the School of Fluid Measures objects, numbers and values that have become fixed by universal standards are dissolved through scored interactions that leave traces in coloured sand. The patterns that emerge are an exploratory measure of the fluidity of meanings, and the colours represent exemplary values as resources to debate, distribute, and fuse into new colours and values. Through an embodied process that surfaces situative intentions and relations, 18 measuring sessions invite participants to negotiate new colours and values. Viewed as a series, the 18 sessions intend to explore ways of mediating, materializing and notating the making of meanings and results, in a manner that embraces the fluidity of the constant socio-material becoming. Visit for details on how to participate.

Dates: 22.09. – 04.11.1018
At: 4th Istanbul Design Biennial – „A School of Schools“
Location: Pera Museum, Istanbul

ACTING THINGS at Politics of Design at Z33

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the 15th edition of the international Participatory Design Conference and is about participation and political engagement in current design practices. This 'first act’ is the first exhibition in a longer trajectory that aims to start new collaborations in a local, regional and international context, and will result in a 'final act' in 2020: The Politics of Design Festival. The exhibition presents three thematic events that make tangible the politics of ways in which participation is given form. These 'ways to participate' are: BODY (participating as an individual and as a physical body through the practices of care and work), COMMUNITY (participating through and towards creating a collective through the practices of commonality and representation) and CITY (participating as a stranger in larger scale networks, through practices of data production and collection, and contributions to complex challenges, such as sustainability). The Politics of Design: Act 1 starts the conversation on the complexities of our engagement by activating different design and research practices in the space of Z33’s beguinage houses.

Opening: Wednesday 22.08.2018, 7.30 pm
Open: 22th September – 16th December 2018
Location: Z33 – House for Contemporary Art, Zuivelmarkt 33, 3500 Hasselt (BE)

This exhibition The Point In Front Is Not The Point In Front Is Not at Kyoto Art Center features works of Judith Seng and Yusuke Taninaka, both currently based in Berlin, and reflects on the relationship between performance and sculpture. Both Seng and Taninaka create structures in which space, material, and the body interact. Sculpture, installations, and movements of the body are not separate, but, as a whole, indicate a process or a relationship, which makes possible compositions in which they can be seen as performative. Seng is inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony she experienced in Kyoto, seeing its ceremonial nature as choreography, while Taninaka, always moving between the domains of sculpture and performance, intends to make relationships occur as "duration." This exhibition shows two approaches by two artists with different cultural backgrounds and experiences, aiming to open a space of dialogue and reflection.

13th of July till 13th of August 2017 at North and South Gallery at Kyoto Art Center, Japan.
Organizer: Kyoto Art Center
Curatorial organization: HAPS (Higashiyama Artist Placement Service)
Supported by Goethe-Institut Villa Kamogawa and Kvadrat

An artistic-scientific cooperation between professor Kirsten Winderlich (grund_schule der künste) and Judith Seng.

How would children construct their own places for reading and writing? How can we mount and realize these processes? The grund_schule der künste deals with these questions within the context of the experimental setting “ACTING THINGS” which was developed by designer Judith Seng as part of her fellowship in the Graduate School at the Berlin University of the Arts. On 18th November a research theater project took place with Judith Seng and 32 children from four Berlin-based schools. The students of the Charlie-Rivel-Grundschule, the Lemgo-Grundschule, the Hellmuth-James-von-Moltke-Grundschule and the Paula-Fürst-Gemeinschaftsschule had space and time for designing their own place for reading and writing. Students and teachers of grund_schule der Künste give advice and support to the research theater by means of visually qualified research methods to demonstrate the quality of headstrong education processes in the context of place, space and language.

ACTING THINGS - Material Flow has been commissioned for Design Miami/Basel as the fourth in a series of experiments which investigates the making of objects through the performing arts in order to unveil the aesthetic, energetic and social dimensions of production processes. By looking at production as a dance, a play, a social ritual, ACTING THINGS explores means of making beyond efficiency and result orientation.

Material Flow stages a poetic evolution of material, movement and objects over the course of Design Miami/ Basel - seven days, eight hours a day. Throughout the fair, dancers will engage in a free-flowing dialogue with material to create objects that express a unique process of making and a continuous cycle of fabrication and dissolution triggered by a continuous flow of material. A series of objects will be created each day to signify a complete cycle of production, only to be broken down the next day and translated into a different body of work, enabling new moments of creation again and again.

The dance part of the experiment is developed through an evolving cooperation between dancer Barbara Berti and Judith Seng. ACTING THINGS IV will be performed by Barbara Berti, Julian Weber and Team Studio Judith Seng.

dates: 11th - 16th of June 2013, 11 am -7 pm
preview day: 10th of June 2013 (By invitation only)

The book ACTING THINGS by Judith Seng, designed by Carsten Giese/Studio Regular and published by UDK Publishers, was released in January 2013. It documents the project and the existing experiments ACTING THINGS I - III. Besides detailing the physical works, the publication also presents a discussion between the choreographer Rhys Martin, the musician and improvisation theorist Christopher Dell and the curator Joshua Simon about "Objects and Processes," moderated by Judith Seng. A second text, written by art theorist Johannes Lang, discusses production as aesthetic experience using ecological design as an example; while Thomas Düllo, a cultural scientist, reflects on “Materiality and Interference Art” in regards to Seng’s work.

The exhibition TOTEM AND TABOO examines the relationship between art and design. It features works by contemporary designers and artists who work on the frontiers and crossovers of their respective disciplines. TOTEM AND TABOO views art as a relative of design. The eponymous collection of essays by Sigmund Freud defines totem as an object representing an absent relative. Taboo stands for the fear of incest, or excessive closeness among family members. The Curators referred to Freud’s text as a model to
describe the relationship between design and art.

Together with Alex Valder Judith Seng explored the high number of factory seconds (70%) as taboos within productions in cooperation with the vienna based glas manufactory Lobmeyr. In order to reveal a different quality which demands an independent evaluation 12 objects were reassembled out of high quality waste glasses.

Acting Things I is the opening event in a series of experiments into
the possibilities of production processes around objects. It rethinks
them by turning a theater stage into a temporary factory in which
guests produce tables themselves in order to dine on them together.
Entrance is free -the only payment is the physical labor the audience
contributes to the project.

The long-term research project Acting Things consists of a series of
experiments with integrating elements from the performative arts -
such as dance, music and theater - into the manufacture and use
of products. The aim is to challenge existing perspectives on
production processes, and to look at those methods holistically,
with all of their potential socio-political, physical, or aesthetic
dimensions unified into one larger system.
The project is funded by a research grant from the at
Graduate School for the Arts and Sciences the University of the Arts.
