In recent debates around contemporary art's social and asocial presence, a scene that thinks of itself as liberal, if not critical, was met with an adversary that is by no means new but that today has reached a new and actualized significance: an artist figure whose self-image is based on (and limited to) the perpetual acting out of social privilege. With the recent ends of liberal society, the replacement of tales of emancipation by those of defensive aggression by the likes of right wing parties and alt right culture, the critical art world appears to lack the means not only to rid itself of artists falling into that line of social brutalization, but also even to identify what they label as "jokes", "fun" and "freedom of speech" as new guises of renowned modes of cultural fascistication. Ana Texeira Pinto and Kerstin Stakemeier will discuss such questions of form, not just as that of artworks and cultural debates, but also as one of a post-liberal subjectivity among us.
Kerstin Stakemeier, a writer and educator based in Berlin, is a professor of art theory and mediation at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Nürnberg.
Ana Teixeira Pinto is a writer and cultural theorist based in Berlin. She is a lecturer at the DAI (Dutch Art Institute) and at Leuphana University, Lüneburg.

Since the 1990s the artist Thomas Eggerer, who was born in Munich and lives in New York, has created subjects in his figurative paintings that are dedicated to the individual in the field of tension between community and isolation, as well as between the general public and individuality. The irony of his depictions of everyday scenes and gestures direct the gaze to their philosophical quality. InGo to the event
Jana Euler in Conversation with Monika Bayer-Wermuth
A scared white shark, a portrait of Ed Sheeran, or a female depiction of Christ: Jana Euler’s striking motifs are always only the entry to a larger debate about painting. For the last decade the Friedberg-born artist has used styles and expressive forms of painting eclectically in order to question the medium using its own means. In the process she opens the discourse on socially relevant issuesGo to the event
