Artist and editor Achim Lengerer / Scriptings works on political questions of speech and language that he thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and his publication series Scriptings. He is also the co-founder of various other collaborative projects such as freitagsküche in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with artist colleague Dani Gal.
Since 2009 Achim runs the showroom and publishing house Scriptings, based in the Berlin borough of Wedding. Artists, writers, graphic-designers, performers as well as publishers are invited – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of production.
Scriptings – the word itself a hybrid combining “script” and “writings” – functions both as a container for materials and as a module in the process of creation: record, imprint, transcript, memo, logbook, and image archive of research activities. Lengerer is currently researching at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK, on the format of the collective rehearsal as an artistic and political model for spaces of social negotiation.
Scriptings is Partner of Berlin Art Week.
