On 22 March, the MaerzMusik Library will head to the Academy of Arts on Hanseatenweg to exhibit “Contemplations into the Radical Others”, the research project on Lucia Dlugoszewski. In addition to this transfer of knowledge, the new book “Composing While Black” will be presented in a discussion, with authors George Lewis and Harald Kisiedu.

Knowledge isn’t static – in fact, it has to keep moving in order to survive. The MaerzMusik Library will make a guest appearance at the Akademie der Künste, deepening the collaboration between the institutions, contextualising the media exhibited during the festival in a different location and expanding on central issues. In addition to a book stand and an exhibition of multimedia content from the research project “Contemplations into the Radical Others” on the life and work of Lucia Dlugoszewski, the literal transfer of knowledge will be deepened in a round of talks. Members of the Akademie der Künste, including George Lewis, who co-edited the anthology “Composing While Black” with Harald Kisiedu this year, will meet with an audience for a discussion.
