Popakademie Talks
© Martina Sander-Blanck
The Popakademie Talks start on Tuesday, 16.04.2024. At 7 p.m. Marina Fischer will talk about the abuse of power at universities. She is a psychologist and systemic consultant. Fischer conducts research on working conditions in the arts and cultural sector as part of the doctoral program "Good Work in a Transformative World" at the Social Science Research Center Berlin and the Institute Gender in Medicine at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Here she investigates young artists' experiences of abuse of power and violence in the context of their university education and early career phases. Fischer is particularly interested in the perspectives of (multiply) marginalized artists, in the connections between experiences of power abuse and mental health, and in power-sensitive prevention approaches for artistic teaching and learning contexts. In addition to her research, she is part of Themis Vertrauensstelle e.V., the independent nationwide counselling organization against sexualized violence in the cultural and media industry. Here, victims, witnesses and employers receive free legal and psychological support.

She is the leader of the research project Gendering Music Matter (2022-2024), which investigates gender inequalities in the Danish popular music industry. A particular focus is on how the infrastructure of the popular music industry influences the experiences and navigation of women and gender minoritized music makers in pursuing their careers in the field.

How and with what innovations are streaming and video platforms reacting to the latest developments in the field of artificial intelligence? Which new technologies can (DIY) artists use to reach their fans and communities? And last but not least, how are collecting societies dealing with this issue, what challenges exist and what projects are being initiated to address them?

The FMC invites you to discuss these questions together, debate innovative solutions and set the course for the future of the music industry.
