The Magic Thing // Objects of Desire
The Replica platform again calls for workshop participants for their new workshop series “The Magic Thing // Objects of Desire,” taking place Sunday, July 15th 2018, between noon and 5pm.
The “The Magic Thing // Objects of Desire” workshop aims to foster one-to-one collaborations between performers and technologists (creative coders, interaction designers, makers and tinkerers), and to co-devise both future work sessions and an augmented performance.
Participation is free but curated — please contact email@example.com well ahead of the workshop date to tell the organizers about your skills and interests.

NEW RESIDENT ARTISTS
Angela Flury, associate professor in the English department at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, USA, is a writer, scholar, speaker and educator interested in the history of the novel, genre fiction, world literature, translation studies, visual studies and cinematic narratives. Summer 2018, she returns to SomoS as part of its Visiting Researchers Program, devoting her time and energy to the preparation of her academic courses and to her novel-in-progress “Berlin Cards & Crimes.”
SomoS is pleased to introduce Lara Salmon to its Artist-in-Residence program. She will spend June-August 2018 in Berlin to expand on her performance work focusing on the relationship between longstanding communities and recent migrants to Berlin and how this relates to a global context of human movement.
Chicago-based French-Canadian painter Magalie Guérin (1973) joins SomoS May-July 2018 in Berlin, where she will conduct visual and intellectual research for the development of her abstractions. After absolving a residency at the Marfa Texas Chinati Foundation, Guérin is curious to see how the difference in landscape and cultural context will affect her work.
Curator Anastasia Leonova comes to Berlin from Ukraine for for a curatorial residency of intensive networking and research, leading towards a final exhibition project that will explore what it means to be a local artist operating in a globalized and interconnected culture.
