Annual exhibition 2021: Prof. Dr. Anja Steidinger
Porträt einer Frage
The group Klasse_Grund_Schule has recorded portraits of people with the question "Are you happy?". This question moved filmmakers Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin as early as 1961 to capture society's state of mind on film.
To the question "Are you happy?" all the interviewees find very different and very personal answers, despite the current pandemic. At the same time, a sensitive web of relationships emerges between the people involved and the concept of happiness.

Was animiert uns?
Based on the question in the title, we explored the Wartenau 15 building and auditorium where our meetings were held at the beginning of the semester before moving to digital space. Four archive boxes from the Hamburg School Museum relating to the private girls' school at Wartenau 15 will be interrogated and discussed by the group. Who collected what, how, and why in these boxes? What do the boxes not show? Which voices do we want to give space to?

As performers in digital space, we follow the self-defined stage directions for the role as teacher and artist. The polyphonic performance plays humorously with the means of representation, which presents us with stereotypes and deconstructs them at the same time.
