Episode 32 / VOICES ON ART – The VAN HORN Gallery Podcast / Mareike Dittmer, Director of Public Engagement at TBA21-Academy, Zürich, Switzerland
Recorded April 15, 2021. 53 min. Language: english
My guest today is Mareike Dittmer, Director of Public Engagement at TBA21-Academy, Zürich, Switzerland. Mareike’s skill is communication and she takes us onto an elaborate journey through her life. In the first part of this Episode Mareike talks her upbringing in East Germany, why she first trained in banking before attending art school and her diving into the underground artworld of 90s Berlin, working in London, her years at Frieze Magazine and her engagement with the 9th Futurological Congress and the Museum Susch in Engadin, Switzerland. In the 2nd half of the Podcast she speaks in depth about TBA21 Art Foundation and Academy, the Ocean Uni, the past year under Corona measurements and her plans and wishes for the future. She mentions many people she cherishes and cooperated with and shares her belief in serendipity, that she keeps her doors open for luck to come in and how she’s very glad that there seems to be a new sense of togetherness.
