dis:connected objects

On 15 June 2022, Nadia von Maltzahn took part in a workshop organised by the Käte Hamburger Research Centre global dis:connect in Munich to present a letter by the late, Tokyo-based Palestinian artist Vladimir Tamari to his friend in Normandy as a starting point to discuss questions of globalisation, colonisation, exile and friendship. Writing from a McDonald’s that Tamari dubbed ‘this dubious oasis of Western civilization’, the letter addresses these subjects explicitly. It serves as an example to explore what ephemera such as this correspondence can teach us about networks, relationships, motivations and distances in the frame of artistic production. It was also investigated how we should deal with such ephemera as objects, and who should be responsible for safeguarding them and making them accessible.
