Wie geht's? - Kultur in Zeiten von Corona

Wenn etwas nicht mehr da ist, bemerkt man es oft erst richtig: Wegen des Corona Virus hatten die Kultureinrichtungen in Deutschland geschlossen. Doch was macht die Krise mit der Kulturlandschaft in Deutschland und international? Im Podcast "Wie geht's" fragt Gastgeber Martin Zierold pro Fole je eine*n Kulturmanager*in, Künstler*in, Wissenschaftler*in oder Kulturpolitiker*in genau das. Worüber denken sie nach, seit sie erlebt haben, wie schnell sich vermeintliche Gewissheiten ändern können? Woran arbeiten sie? Was fehlt, wenn die Kultur in der Krise steckt? Was wird möglich, wenn man auf einmal über alles neu nachdenken kann und muss? Und nicht zuletzt auch: wie steht es mit der digitalen Transformation? Ein Podcast für alle, die gern hinter die Kulissen von Kunst und Kultur schauen. While the podcast is usually in German, we produce international episodes in English now and then. These can be found on the website: http://covid-culture.com/



episode 48: Thiago Jesus - People's Palace Projects

In conversation with Martin Zierold

Thiago Jesus is Senior Project Manager at People’s Palace Projects (PPP), an arts research centre based at Queen Mary University of London. PPP leads a research programme of cultural exchange with the Kuikuro Indigenous people from Xingu Territory, exploring ways in which arts and technology can support the preservation of fragile communities from the Amazon region. Among the many projects PPP has developed and supported is the theatre production „The Encounter“ of Simon McBurney and his performance group Complicité. Thiago holds a MA in Visual Culture from the University of Westminster, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He has a vast range of experience as a creative producer, researcher, and curator with a focus on cross-cultural initiatives fostering knowledge exchange, innovation, cultural heritage, social and environmental justice.
