Youth & Art
15. Juni – 7. October 2012
The exhibition at Künstlerhaus k/haus highlights the life worlds and creative productions of various youth cultures as reflected in international contemporary art.
“MEGACOOL 4.0 – Youth and Art” presents photographs, interactive installations, video art, paintings, street art and sculptures made by visual artists (incl. Erwin Olaf (Vermeer award laureate 2011), Charlie White, Rinneke Dijkstra and Slinkachu) from across Europe, Russia, China and the USA. The exhibition is supplemented by objects and everyday items from Jugendkulturarchiv Frankfurt and a focus on young art from Vienna (incl. an installation developed by wienxtra-medienzentrum in collaboration with youngsters).
“MEGACOOL 4.0” presents fundamentally different types of youths: normal ones, assimilated hipsters, altar servers, drag kings, fat ones, thin ones, twins, celebrities, goths, hiphops, metalheads, ravers, cosplayers, avatars, aggressive girls. From installations such as “Mindless living” by LA Raeven and “Pitbull” by Martin Brand, Cao Fei’s “Cosplayer”, Andreas Gursky’s “Mayday I”, Michael Schmellings Serie “Atlanta HipHop” to Nan Goldin’s “Jimmy Paulette after the Parade”. The exhibits takes visitors on a visual foray through young people’s picturescapes and theme areas such as online cultures, light / dark, body and gender performances as well as their choreographies, fashion, games, sport and party. In addition to the fundamental questions in young people’s identity search, the creative minds of a generation are invited to take centre stage, those who use Web 2.0 platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, flickr, deviantart or animexx as a source of inspiration for aesthetic-creative experiments, explore creative freedom and produce new forms of art. “MEGACOOL 4.0” shows fundamentally different takes on “youth”, their movements, their poses, their objects and their fashion.

Magnotta Speedshow – A vanity surf performance at
Internetcafe Helin, Karl-Marx-Straße 156, Berlin g-maps
8-10 pm, Tuesday 12th of June, 2012
Killing is bad, mailing bodyparts is worse, vanity surfing (while getting caught) is cool!
One week after Magnotta got caught we present a vanity surf performance at the exact same Internetcafe in Berlin where Magnotta was arrested while vanity surfing! Be invited to join and vanity surf yourself!
“Internet cafes are not just vaguely unglamorous places for ethnic minorities and communications challenged, they do have a genuinely bad reputation.” [Olia Lialina – ‘Still There‘] Where else a social network killer can be caught? Of course in the Internet cafe!
by Constant Dullaart, CuratingYoutube, Olia Lialina & Aram Bartholl
While Sjoerd (THX!!) was killing the pool we still could share files through the battery powered wifi Piratebox attached on his board!! No board sides please!!… 😉
This was one of a series of experiments we, David Darts and I, did during a 3 day Offline Filesharing Workshop at Baltanlabs Eindhoven, Netherlands last week. The box below was donated to the skatepart ‘Area 51‘. Go there and check it out! Had a great time!! Thx to Baltan, MU and David!! More docu to come…

copy&paste from http://www.berlinartlink.com/2012/06/02/time-and-openness/
Bartholl moved to Berlin in 1995 to earn a degree in the architecture department of the UdK. After his initial two years of study he found himself more excited by the T1 connection in the computer lab than the plotters in the architecture studios. Unlike many of the programmers who were discussing the newfound wealth of information and visual possibilities of writing code to develop art, Bartholl was primarily interested in the front end of the Internet; the user experience with, and the presentation of, the aesthetic of the web. Instead of designing websites and becoming a student of online presentation, Bartholl started to observe the visual trends of the web and to interpret these tropes into handmade art works.
The openness of the Internet is integral to the physicality as well as the philosophy of Bartholl’s work. He posts detailed instructions for the recreation of his works online, and some of his works are the instructional videos themselves. While many of Aram’s works question where the inherent value of an artworks lies, that is not the primary intention of his creations. Posting the intricacies of the work to the Internet is “obvious” to Bartholl; the fact that his work exists in three dimensions and in space, does not preclude it from also having the interactive and open elements that are intrinsic to the web. Just as an artwork posted on YouTube is viewed thousands of times, a physical work of Bartholl’s also has the same accessibility. It is this well-established openness along with the content that sets him apart as such a unique web artist.
The ubiquitous conversation of how the Internet decreases our attention spans and thoughtfulness is universally accepted and derided, while at the same time we all participate in this perceived decline. Bartholl sees this haste as opportunity, creating Speed Projects — time restricted art events, self-monitored and self-approved — that are assigned their artistic merit by their completion and often uploading to the web. Bartholl calls these small works “freeing”, as he also considers the brevity of online media. Often he will work months on a work that is only appreciated for a second on the web before it is clicked through, and steadily decreases in viral significance because it is no longer new. The response is Speed Projects, some of which pick up Internet steam and find themselves trending on various forms of social and real media, and others that fall away as quickly as they were made.
Aram Bartholl is showing his work Online Gallery Playset at the group show, 404 Not Found, opening on Friday, June 8 at Berlin project space, Sur la Montagne.
