Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale | Tirana/AL | 4. – 9.5.2017

For the very first time, Albania will be the hosting country of the Biennale of young artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, a multidisciplinary event, promoted by BJCEM, that takes place once in two years in a different location in Europe, with young artists aged from 18 to 34 presenting their contemporary works and performances based on the general theme proposed by the Artistic Director.
The Ministry of Culture of Albania, in collaboration with BJCEM, will host 230 artists from Europe and the Mediterranean region. The public will have a different experience of contemporary art thanks to the interesting formula of Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale, the proposed theme and unusual exhibition spaces in Albania.
The Ministry of Culture of Albania, together with BJCEM’s Board approved the appointment of
Driant Zeneli as the Artistic Director of Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale, with the responsibility for conceptualizing the theme of the Biennale and setting up the curatorial team, each of the curators curating one of the following six disciplines: applied arts, visual art, performance, literary creation, music and film.
Driant Zeneli is a renowned Albanian artist working between Milan and Tirana, who represented Albania at the 54th International Art Exhibition-Venice Biennale.

He has exhibited at: MuCEM, Marseille, (2016), Centre Pompidou, Paris, (2016); MSFAU Tophane-i Aime, Istanbul, (2016); Prometeogallery di Ida Pisani, Milan (2015; 2010); GAM, Museum of Modern and Contemporaryart Turin (2013); ZKM, Karlsruhe (2012); MUSAC, Castiglia León. Spain, (2012); Prague Biennale 5, Prague (2011); National Gallery of Kosove, Prishtine (2010); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Genoa (2009); National Gallery of Tirana, (2008).

Driant Zeneli conceptualized the theme of Mediterranea 18, having considered the following:

  • The main aim of BJCEM association, which is the use of art as a tool to promote diversity and intercultural dialogue;
  • the growing complexities of political, social and economic structures in the world and finally Albania, the hosting country of the Biennale that is defined by its isolated and communist past.

The theme is History + Conflict + Dream + Failure = HOME, and much more than a simple equation, Zeneli’s curatorial concept describes why HOME is grounded on these four elements:

‘’… History, intending the archive of the unaccountable number of individual stories, recorded or forgotten. Conflict, to consider the way we share homes. Dream as the project of home, as the fundamental human right to be free to choose and desire our real or imaginary home. Failure as the inner resistance of the various attempts, transformed along the way in search for the dream home’’.

The Curatorial Team comes from various countries and backgrounds, and bring with them valuable experience for curating their respective discipline:

Curator of Applied Arts: Jonida Turani
Curator of Visual Art: Maja Ciric
Curator of Performance: Ema Andrea
Curator of Literary Creation: ALA Group / Maria Rosa Sossai
Curator of Music: Alban Nimani&Rubin Beqo / Tulla Center
Curator of Film: Eroll Bilibani

Multiple exhibition spaces
The 230 selected artists will exhibit in some unusual and though-provoking spaces around Tirana and Durrës. The exhibition spaces include former communist sights, museums, buildings, installations, etc. The selected artists will be hosted in Tirana and Durres from May 4 to 9, 2017. In those days they will have the opportunity to show their works and will perform in the spaces provided in the two cities. The exhibitions will be open to the public until May 28, 2017.

RHYTHM AND DECAY | Kunsthalle Linz | 22.11.2016

“RHYTHM AND DECAY” // Sebastian Six

“You went out with your best sweater on
With every intention of dancing till dawn
But when the DJ played that song …”

You are standing in front of the door with a dull memory of alcohol and flickering light. Your slow-drying sweat sucks the cold deep under your skin and the reverberation of too-loud beats fades into an eternal hum in the ears. “What is now, are you coming?”

Acoustic experiments in connection with items of everyday life, sculptural assemblages and the physical element of sound are the main aspects of Sebastian Six’s musical and visual compositions. The works deal with moments where noise becomes music and the difference between hearing and active listening is explored.

"NOTES ON TOMORROW " CURATED BY LUISA SANTOS

If we think of contemporary art as a social system – an idea coined by Niklas Luhmann (1992) putting the arts in the realm of perception -, we locate art in what it does at its best: showing possible realities, through a critical observation, of the world we live in, at social, economical and political levels.

It is precisely in this idea that the history of the collective exhibition Notes on Tomorrow unfolds.  The characters (the works) of this story come together in a series of dichotomies. Firstly, the large in conflict with the small; on the other hand, the visual formalisation of the contrasts between History, fiction and memories; the relationship between the observer and the observed; contemplation and creation; networks of information, stories and seemingly random events; and, finally, the contradiction between known and unknown, translated by the desire to discover, to change to something beyond the horizon and, paradoxically, the need for familiar refuges.

These dichotomies are not about presenting definitive answers for contemporary society’s challenges but more about looking into a series of questions, observations and experimentations. In this way, these representations reflect the ambivalence of human relations. In other words, it is about visually translating small utopia's at local levels through inventions, desires and propositions.

Notes on Tomorrow comes in a series of twenty-one voices from different European cities (Arad, Aveiro, Genoa, Harghita County, Kaunas, Kristiansand, Lecce, Pardubice, Valladolid, Vilnius, and Zagreb) to dwell on possible perceptions about current social issues and includes installations, drawings, texts, diagrams, videos, photographs and different kinds of situations.  - Luísa Santos

Interacting Art | Raumschiff, Linz/AT | 7. – 12.9.2016

interacting-art

A play on artworks, works in process and working things out by doing – together.  Through negotiation, juxtaposition, and re-contextualization, various works and non-works will be woven into an interface for the audience, built through interactive, textual and performative processes.

The project is based on a collective process initiated by Sam Bunn, Davide Bevilacqua and Sebastian Six and hosted by Raumschiff the week before the opening of Ars Electronica.

There’s no excuse for our lethargy: since we already possess the ideas, tools and techniques to initiate a change of course. The collaborative display here exhibited turns non-functional works into functional un-works, reaching towards how art might work between artworks. The project uses the medium of interaction in a way that allows the pieces to leave the traditional space of artistic discourse and to occupy instead the space of dialogue.

With Stella Baraklianou, Yen Tzu Chang & Yoh Morishita, Maria Czernohorszky, Isidora Ficovic, Laura Jade Hindes, Mary Maggic, Francesco Nordio, Patrick Schabus, Henning Schulze, Julio Sosa, Federico Tasso.
A project by Davide Bevilacqua, Sam Bunn, and Sebastian Six.

OPENING:
7th Sepember 8 pm + performances from Yen Tzu Chang & Yoh Morishita and Sebastian Six

EXHIBITION:
Thu 9 September - Mon 12 September 2016, 11 AM - 7 PM

[H:UMMMM] - auditive.wellness.heterotopologies

Sat, April 9th 2016, 15:00 – 22:00
Wellnessoase Hummelhof, Ramsauerstraße 12, Linz

[H:UMMMM] examines, elaborates and processes the functionality of sounds in modern spa/wellness zones in manifold ways. Interrelations between sound and social, medical, architectonic and artistic contexts will be investigated, discussed and analysed. These contexts will be examined in relation to sound studies and Michel Foucault's concept of Human Geography.

[H:UMMMM] explores the ties and liaisons of artistic and academic approaches in a site-specific spa-centre heterotopia in Linz, Austria. This will take place on April 9th, 2016. By exchanging all audio sources of the bath, experiencing performances, installations and lectures the spa area of the wellness oasis Hummelhof is converted into an auditory spa/wellness heterotopia of a different kind.

The program consists of …

Deformation der Stille | galerie5020, Salzburg/AT | 11.12. – 14.02.2015

Ein Ausstellungsprojekt von Franz Bergmüller & Siegfried Zaworka

 

Mit:
Ioan Cernei & Tiina Sööt, FAXEN, Susanna Flock, Peter Fritzenwallner, Michael Gumhold, Stefan Klampfer, Ulrike Königshofer, Jakob Neulinger, Ivan Petkov, Christian Ruchnewitz

 

Die Form bedingt den Ton könnte eine Maxime des Instrumentenbaus sein. Wenn jedoch die Form eines Dinges zur Herstellung eines Tones mindestens gleichberechtigt zeichnet, führt uns diese Aussage direttissima zur »Deformation der Stille«.
Der Ton transformiert hierbei die Form, so möchte man rückwirkend hinzufügen – und zwar nicht nur in jenem bestimmten Kontext, in dem beide existieren, sondern bereits davor: denn die Form des Apparates zur Herstellung eines Tones unterliegt bereits einer Zweckgebundenheit. Der Begriff »Zweckgebundenheit« täuscht allerdings gerne über die damit gewonnenen Freiheiten bei der Suche nach einem geeigneten Formenvokabular, das eine tatsächliche Vertonung impliziert, hinweg.
Klangliche Installation, akustische Plastik, donnernde Performance, ächzende Grafik, murmelnde Malerei – einige in verschiedenen medialen Bereichen verankerte hybride Stützkonstruktionen geraten in den Fokus unserer Aufmerksamkeit: Wer einen Ausstellungsbeitrag übersehen möchte, braucht Ohrenstöpsel, um sich nicht die visuelle Ausprägung durch den in Dezibel messbaren Output vorstellen zu müssen.
(Franz Bergmüller, Siegfried Zaworka)

Listening Post 2 mit Maja Osojnik und Faxen von 23. Oktober bis 21. Februar 2016

Listening Post, Expedition Sonar und Arbeiten der Reihe Sound Passagen bilden die Basis für die weitere intensive Beschäftigung mit dem Themenfeld Soundart.
Die Arbeiten von Maja Osojnik (im LENTOS Leseraum) und der Künstlergruppe Faxen (im Zentralaufgang) siedeln sich am Schnittpunkt von Innen und Außen an und bieten eine auf die auditive Ebene konzentrierte Wahrnehmung.

(h)ear XL II | Heerlen/NL | 26.9 – 9.11.2014

(h)ear is a foundation which focusses on sound art and experimental music and makes effort to initiate dialogues with other art disciplines in order to create and stimulate. (h)ear organizes concerts, performances, workshops, lectures and curates exhibitions about sound art. Based in the Netherlands.

(h)ear is an art initiative located in Parkstad Limburg which in particular focuses on complementing existing cultural initiatives through sound art and experimental music. We promote sound art as an independent discipline initiating dialogue between other arts and existing initiatives. By providing (temporary) locations and platforms for live performances of (sound)artists we create the opportunity for various disciplines within the arts to connect and react. To achieve this we organise inovative performances, presentations, exhibitions and workshops by (sound)artists and curators, with the aim of stimulating the development and communication and debate within the arts. We don't have a presentation space or 'fixed' stage. Instead we use (temporary) sites, vacant buildings, project rooms at institutions and art centers, museums or public spaces, all clearly eligible for projects which (h)ear initiates.

Transposition.Change | NÖDOK, St. Pölten/AT | 21.3. – 27.4.2014

Hubert Lobnig kuratiert Arbeiten von Studierenden und AbsolventInnen der Experimentellen Gestaltung der Kunstuniversität Linz.

Der Terminus „Transposition“ und der Terminus „Change“ werden hier für die Arbeit von KünstlerInnen eingesetzt, die auf sehr ungewöhnliche Art mit Wirklichkeit umgehen. Es steht für einen Prozess von feiner Wahrnehmung und Übersetzung - vielleicht für eine Transportation und Transformation auf eine andere Ebene, die neue, differenzierte Sichtweisen ermöglicht.

Zugleich stehen die Begriffe für die Kunst von Hubert Lobnig, und seine kuratorische und vermittelnde Tätigkeit, die er seit nun fast 20 Jahren auch an der Experimentellen in Linz ausübt. Lehre, die immer in der Position der Transformation, des Austausches von Konzeptionen und Kompetenzen, des Wechsels und der Veränderung aufgebaut ist – ständig in Bewegung.


Foto © Josef Reitsberger, VA01_C03_Ma01_Ca03_E02, 2014

Die Ausstellung wird eine Vielzahl von hervorragenden Arbeiten von Studierenden und Absolventinnen der Experimentellen in Linz in unterschiedlichsten Medien zeigen. Neue Arbeiten, aber auch Werke und Projekte, die schon in Ausstellungen gezeigt und unterschiedlichen Öffentlichkeiten präsentiert wurden, Diplomarbeiten, Arbeiten, die außerhalb des universitären Zusammenhangs entstanden sind aber auch manche, die aktuell in der Experimentellen entstehen.

Zusätzlich befragt die Ausstellung die Position von KünstlerInnen, die eine Trans-Position in der Gellschaft einnehmen, also keine fixierte, sondern eine bewegte, die das Dazwischen als Chance für Wahrnehmung und Erkenntnis definiert.

Die Experimentelle Gestaltung wurde in den 1970 er Jahren von Laurids Ordner (Haus-Rucker-Co) gegründet, 1993 von dem Philosophen und Ausstellungskurator Herbert Lachmayer neu ausgerichtet an der Schnittstelle von Kulturwissenschaften und künstlerischer Forschungspraxis und wird seit 2002 von Andrea van der Straeten geleitet. Hubert Lobnig hält seit 1993 grundlegende Lehrveranstaltungen und hat seit 2003 den Schwerpunkt ortsbezogene Kunst und Kunst im öffentlichen Raum mit zahlreichen Lehrveranstaltungen und Projekten ausgebaut.

„Alle Worte sind aus!“ lautet das Jahresstatement des KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd. Es verweist auf das Bedürfnis, nicht alles erklären zu müssen und ist ein Versuch, einer allgemein wahrgenommenen Beliebigkeit das Wort zu entziehen. Kulturelles und künstlerisches Produzieren müssen einen Freiraum im Prozess beinhalten.

Für die Ausstellung ist es der Impuls, fünf internationale Positionen in den Raum zu bringen, in denen die Annäherungen, das Dazwischen und das Beziehungen herstellen, thematisiert werden.

Das Jahresstatement widerspiegelt das hohe Interesse des KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd an Formen des „in Erscheinung Tretens“ und des „in Beziehung Tretens“ und auf dem Erspüren von Dynamiken und Atmosphären.
