Beauty, Power and Alienation

Performance and Video installation 

by Arthur Jafa and Peppermint Patty

Sunday, July 26th


A brutal and magnificent rendering of what it’s like to face the cold shoulder of Western cultural ideals. The feverish rituals of juxtaposed video installation and performance turn on the fragility of self-conception with an unsparing lens. A shattering reflection on the violent mechanisms that shove the marginalized towards invisibility. 


Peppermint Patty is a fiery character from the classic comic series “Peanuts”. She fights gender stereotypes with an allergy to bullshit. 


Arthur Jafa is an African American artist, director, and filmmaker known for giving black cinema and black art a visual lexicon. He inspires the stars of pop culture and has infiltrated the white walls of art institutions with his visceral truth-telling art. 


The event is organized by Shuaitong Zong

Mad Mad Mad Summer Program will take place from July 23rd to 26th 2020. The weekend is dedicated to several exciting encounters of thinkers, artists and role models, curated by students of HfG Karlsruhe. Coming from different practices and backgrounds, each of the guests raises topical questions relevant to the context of the HfG.

MAD MAD MAD SUMMER PROGRAM #5: What's left of us?

July 23rd-26th

What’s left of us?, an installation of traces and footprints with Hilma af Klint and Sakine Cansız


What if Hilma af Klint and Sakine Cansız had met and we wouldn’t know about it? What if we would only see the traces they left? The encounter’s result is the clash of these two people, and all we see is footprints and a cloud of dust. Were both of them still alive when they met? Were they already dead? Only one of them? What would they tell each other, and did they even talk to each other?


What would Sakine tell us about her death? Murdered for political reasons in unresolved circumstances, a victim of a plot, a victim of (in)human brutality? Would she even want us to talk about her death? She had been living a whole life fighting for the right to live as a kurdish person in Turkey, as a person with ideas and ideals, as a revolutionary, as a woman in a patriarchal system. Now we’re talking about her death, and maybe she hopes that it was not worth nothing.


What would Hilma tell us about her death? Living a life in creating, imagining worlds through her paintings. Canvas after canvas, not knowing anymore which world is the real one and which one the imagined. Would she invite us in her universe? After her death in 1944, people would not be allowed to see her paintings for 20 long years. Are we in the year 2020 the people she hoped to see staring at her art?

MAD MAD MAD SUMMER PROGRAM #4: Between matter and spirit – Two ways to create a symbol

Between matter and spirit – Two ways to create a symbol, a documentary about Hilma af Klint and Susan Kare
July 25th

Analog meets digital, organic meets rational and spirit meets matter. Hilma af Klint, an abstract painter who was born in 19th century Sweden and Susan Kare, a graphic designer from USA, Ithaca come together to share their individual working practices with each other. 

Hilma af Klint developed her abstract visual language as a mediumistic artist. She created a complex vocabulary of two dimensional forms and symbols, which she documented in over 125 notebooks. 

According to Susan Kare, good icons should be efficient and easily comprehended like road signs. There should be an understandable statement behind one symbol so that the user can follow a clear instruction. She takes inspiration from various art forms like mosaic and embroidery to create her grid-based symbols.

A camera team accompanied the two pioneering women and documented their joint work and the mutual insights into each other's world. Hilma af Klint takes Susan Kare to one of the meetings of the Group “The Five”, of which Hilma af Klint is a member. There Susan Kare learns how to work more freely, experimentally and intuitively. In return Susan Kare teaches Hilma af Klint how to transfer her symbols into a digital and uniform writing system.


  1. Susan Kare is a US-American graphic designer best known for her pioneering work on digital iconography and typography for the Apple Macintosh. Her works show a rather mathematical approach. 

  1. Hilma af Klint was an abstract painter inspired by spirituality. During her lifetime, her paintings did not find any appeal in a male-dominated world, so she decreed that her works should not be shown until twenty years after her death.
