is this darkness in you too” is a project by the Video Art & Performance seminar group of Phil Collins & Tobias Yves Zintel. Taking to the streets from Columbiadamm to Südstern and Mehringdamm the students from Cologne will engage with communities and individuals who live and work adjacent to the Floating University. “is this darkness in you too” brings together the neighbourhood with art students in pairs or duos which will explore everyday life in the area, and experience the highs and lows of collaborative practices as the project’s main aim. Protagonists ranging from policewomen and men, to graveyard gardeners, night club owners, long distance lorry drivers and the manager of a refugee-run gym, speak to the interconnected contradictions of coexistence in the vicinity of the former Airport Tempelhof, reflecting through encounters and exchanges on the purpose of the university itself.
