Artist Achim Lengerer researches questions of political language that he either thematizes in his performances, films, and radio-plays, or spatializes within his installations.
In the last decade Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche in Frankfurt/Berlin and voiceoverhead, a collaboration with artist colleague Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the travelling showroom and instant publishing house Scriptings, currently based in Berlin. Scriptings functions as a discursive platform parallel and additional to Lengerer’s projects. Artists, filmmakers, writers, graphic-designers, performers as well as publishers are invited – all of which are working with the formats of “script” and “text” within their (collaborative) processes of critical production. Lengerer is currently writing a Ph.D. on the ‘rehearsal’ as an artistic method as well as socio-political format at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.
