Qit Qat Qlub

Slavs and Tatars’ participation in the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2015, Qit Qat Qlub looks at philology, the manna of 19th century scholarship, and how it shaped Germany’s relationship with the East and Orientalism, from esoteric theological exegeses to political instrumentalisation.

Dschinn and Dschuice

Dschinn and Dschuice continues Slavs and Tatars’ investigation into the numinous potential of language, euphoria, pitfalls, seductive slippages and all. The collective’s latest research stems from an interest in a non-rational, non-hermeneutic, theological impulse to studying language. The Kulturprotestantismus that characterized early German philologists and orientalists–from Herder to Hamann, Creuzer to Wilhelm–witnessed a return to the book, the source of scriptures, to decode the mystery of the Old Testament. Slavs and Tatars identify in this holism an antidote to the specialization and secular rage that has otherwise plagued Modernity.

Made in Germany

When we think of foreign powers in the Middle East, we often think of France, England or the United States. For their second exhibition at The Third Line, Made in Germany, Slavs and Tatars look to the unlikely story of German Orientalism and what it can tell us about Europe’s contemporary relationship to Islam.
