Regime Live from General Public project space in Berlin at

The two-year project Migrating Art Academies (MigAA), granted by the
European Commission starts on November 22 with the first seminar –
Laboratory I. The seminar consists of three parts: the residential
Régime supplemented by a number of workshops, lectures, presentations, a
follow-up exhibition and a conference.

The first MigAA laboratory is organized in cooperation with Migrating
Reality project, General Public gallery and Academy of Arts (Akademie
der Künste) in Berlin. This particular introductory research phase is
being dedicated to migration, art and education topics from various
perspectives. Other target activities: socializing, discussions,
presentations and creation of art pieces.

During the Régime, fourteen art students from European School of Visual
Arts, Academy of Media Arts and Vilnius Academy of Arts will be
“embedded” in the 84 square meters space in the General Public gallery
for one week. The students will live together, create pieces of art and
follow the extensive programme of workshops, lectures and presentations
led by acknowledged artists and professors. Régime is the project for
analysis of borders between intimate, personal and public.

Régime is organized in cooperation with Migrating Reality project, the
first conference and exhibition, which took place in April 2008 in
Berlin. Collected material on migration was published in a Migrating
Reality book, which will be presented at the conference
Migration-Art-Education during the last day of the Laboratory I at the
Academy of Arts. The first Migrating Art Academies conference focuses on
three topics - migration, art, and education. Theoreticians, artists,
and professors will overview migration concepts in art and science.

Entrance to the conference events, series of workshops and lectures is
free for all visitors. Art works created by the students during the
Régime will be presented at the exhibition on November 28 in the General
Public gallery.
