In 2017–18, the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory focuses on works that deal with loss of rationality and censorship as signifiers of our age, with strategies of escape from the visibility regime of contemporary societies, and with the libidinous economy of desire in capitalism.

The new fellows Marianna Christofides, belit sağ, Julie Sas and Jan Sieber presented their work and their plans for the coming months in the context of the Start Up Lectures 2017–18 on 6 October 2017.
