Paid translation job

19.03.21 • admin_asta

Dear fellow students,

The AStA is looking for a student with very good English skills for a paid translation job.
Specifically, we would like to have the statutes of the student body, the rules of procedure of the student parliament and the election rules for the student parliament elections translated into English in order to reduce language barriers in student university politics.
You can find the three texts here: http://asta-udk-berlin.de/de/udk-politik/rechtsgrundlagen/

The time frame for completion is around the beginning of May.

If you are interested in this task, please send us an informal email with details of your qualifications and your asking price to stupa@asta-udk-berlin.de.

Best regards,
the AStA and the StuPa of the UdK

International solidarity with the students in Turkey

17.03.21 • admin_asta

Since 2 January 2021, students, lecturers, graduates and employees of Boğaziçi University in Istanbul have been protesting against the police presence at the university and for the resignation of the rector who is loyal to the government. 

The demonstrators are subjected to police violence. Four students belonging to the LGBTQI+ community were arrested for an art action.

In solidarity with the protests in Turkey, students and lecturers of the Berlin University of the Arts organised a solidarity action last week.

"We stand on the side of the demonstrators and demand:

  • The resignation of the rector who is loyal to the government!
  • The restoration of the autonomy of Turkish universities!
  • The immediate release of the imprisoned students!
  • An immediate end to the blockade of the university grounds!
  • An immediate end to the (public) attacks and criminalisations of lecturers and the LGBTQI+ community!"

LGBTQIA+ Workshop

10.02.21 • admin_asta

I.D.A. is organising an online event on LGBTQIA+ empowerment on Friday 19.02.2021 at 18:00! The event will be led by Cornelia Fleck.

Please register via email to ida@asta-udk-berlin.de with your name and study programme.

When: Friday 19.02.21, 18:00 - 19:30

Where: Webex

Language: English/German

There are also many outing situations and challenges to manage in everyday life at the University of the Arts. Is the new teacher homophobic or not? Should I leave certain topics alone in my seminar group? Do I feel strong enough today to face astonishment, irritation and sometimes rejection? Uncertainties can also and especially arise in the artistic creative process. Do I / should I make queer art? Are these explicitly political works or is there something like queer aesthetics? Among other things, the workshop serves as a networking platform so that you don't feel alone with the above-mentioned stressors.

Exercises will also be used to experiment with one's own artistic voice and its relationship to queerness. We will track down internalised censorship systems and explore what should and should not belong to one's own artistic expression. Last but not least, there will be input on how microaggressions work and how to counter them.
