Incredible – it’s printed!!! Thank you for working with me. It’s been a true pleasure to engage with these texts, 10 years of REMOTEWORDS knowledge and images and to support with editing, proof-reading, producing this worthwhile publication.

This publication documents the thirty-five unique actions of the REMOTEWORDS project and contextualizes them in a compre­­­­hen­sive way with highly diverse statements and essays from the perspective of cultural studies, art and media history, literature and media psychology.
It is published in the edition KHM, a cooperation project between the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and the Herbert von Halem Verlag. You can get your copy here or directly there. Or thumb through it.

Overwhelming Imagination

My second stay in Beijing is about to come – I’m very pleased! Together with 17 other spekars from (almost) all over the world, I’m invited to take part in the Think-Tank Conference ‚Overwheming Imagination‘ at Si Shang Art Museum. I’ll contribute to the conference with a talk about Biennials in the first panel about ‚Global Politics of Art‘. Thanks to I: Projectspace for the enourmous effort in bringing us together. See you in a bit!

MOFF 13 – Interview

The 13th Edition of Moff Magazine arrived! ‚MOFF – Cologne Artists in Conversation‘ is a voluntary mammal project by Stefanie Klingemann, who asks Cologne artist to talk. This is my most favourite magazine in Cologne, so I was very happy to participate:

From page 7 onwards, I talk with Achim Mohné about his relation to apparatuses, performances, lasers, world travels and the Cologne music scene.

Ghetto Biennale

..back from China, off to Port au Prince to participate in the 4th Ghetto Biennale – KREYÒL, VODOU and the LAKOU : Forms of Resistance together with REMOTEWORDS! Looking forward to write down some experiences afterwards.



It was quite a challenge to support Achim Mohné and Uta Kopp with their gobal project ONE EARTH UNIES MANY WORLDS.

And it was absolutely worth it.

Not only that I could join them to Johannesburg and Port au Prince, I also gained so  many impressions and experiences that it’s hard to believe it took less than a year to realize their inscription. The sentence is spread via five roofs on five continents and was authored by Peter Weibel for the ZKM GLOBALE.


installed in Taipei at Taipei Artist Village, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, with Ghetto Biennale, in Kliptown, Johannesburg at SKY – Soweto Kliptown Youth, in Auckland at MIT, Manukau Institute of Technology and ZKM – Center for Arts and Media Karlsruhe.

Unglaublich! I’ll be part of HuTan Cultural Managers Exchange Programme by Goethe-Institut and Stiftung Mercator!

For this I’ll be matched with a Chinese tandem partner, joining me at all the ’stuff‘ I’m doing in Cologne and will be sent to China in reverse for getting to know about everything s/he’s doing there. The Programme starts with intensive theory courses in Germany at the end of August and finishes after a break at the beginning of December in China.

Six weeks in Shanghai and Beijing here we come! Can’t wait to go.

Tinted Flakes – Annette Wesseling

Have a look at the solo-exhibition of Annette Wesseling at Kunstverein Unna. I wrote a text about her light-inspired interdisciplinary approach to painting and held an introduction at the opening. Please find the text and more images on her website.
