Out Of Bounds

1. February – 2. March 2024
Group Show, SEAGER gallery, London

The first in a four-part exhibition series exploring how artists make work with and about video games, Out of Bounds is an exhibition investigating the architecture of game spaces. The exhibition will reflect upon how artists use game development software within their practice to comment upon the video game landscape, alongside our collective fascination with seeing what’s beneath the surface of both the games we play and the spaces we encounter on a daily basis.

Each exhibition in the series will be accompanied by a reading list of books that inspired the ideas behind the exhibition, as well as a number of books selected by the exhibiting artists that inform their practice, available to read within the gallery space.

With artworks from Aram Bartholl, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Alice Bucknell, Mario Mu, Rosa-Maria Nuutinen, Everest Pipkin, Amba Sayal-Bennett and Mathew Zefeldt, curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight.

Decoding the Black Box

27. January – 2. June 2024
Group Show, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, Sindelfingen

Die Ausstellung Decoding the Black Box bringt Künstlerinnen und Künstler zusammen, die Licht in diesen dunklen Raum und die Prozesse werfen, die sich in ihm ereignen. Sie legen dabei nicht nur die Funktionsweisen digitaler Technologien wie beispielsweise von künstlicher Intelligenz offen, sondern visualisieren zugleich die Auswirkungen, die sie auf unsere Wahrnehmung von Realität und unser In-der-Welt-Sein haben. Während sie die ökonomischen und machtpolitischen Strukturen der digitalen Technologien und insbesondere des Internets transparent machen, zeigen sie Gegenentwürfe für eine dezentralisierte, humanere und demokratischere Nutzung ebendieser auf.

8. July 2023 – 25. February 2024
Solo Show, Kunsthalle Osnabrück, Osnabrück

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Kunsthalle Osnabrück is showing Aram Bartholl’s most comprehensive solo exhibition to date. Aram Bartholl is one of the pioneers in Germany who deals with socially relevant conflicts of digitality and automation through art. Originally coming from the field of architecture, he uses his performative interventions, sculptures and workshops to question our current media behaviour as well as the public economies that are linked to social networks, online platforms or digital distribution strategies. He puts socially relevant topics such as surveillance, data security or dependency on technology up for discussion by transferring the gaps, contradictions or absurdities of our digital everyday life into spatial settings.

For the Kunsthalle Osnabrück, Aram Bartholl transformed the Kunsthalle´s church space into a walk-in recycling yard for electronic waste. The scenery is illuminated by three sculptures hanging from the ceiling, reminiscent of chandeliers that are made from recycled televisions. The result is a sensual as well as functional installation of complementary exhibition parts that invite us to reflect on the cycles, consequences and future perspectives of our daily consumption of media and goods. The walk-through parcours made of piled up electronic waste makes the amount of recycled material of our belongings visible and creates a unique environment for a diverse art mediation programme  including workshops, plena by local climate activists, repair cafés, excursions, lectures and film screenings. Oversized QR codes on the church walls frame the setting and raise critical questions about our handling of energy resources, raw materials and labour rights in the digital society. Opposing the electronic waste, the exhibition contains a 30-metre-long DHL Packstation, which is put into operation during the exhibition period. Osnabrück citizens and visitors are able to pick up their parcels at the Kunsthalle Osnabrück and drop them off in the respective lockers.

Curators: Anna Jehle and Juliane Schickedanz

Enigma

25. February 2023 – 25. February 2024
Group Show, Museum of Communication, Kopenhagen

Communication pervades our lives more than ever before. With the digital channels, we are constantly accessible and can publish ourselves wherever and whenever we want. But despite the many great opportunities, the tide of information may often appear confusing, polarizing or hateful, and our public conversation is challenged.

On November 19, 2022, ENIGMA will open new exhibition areas and a large children’s area, in which we look forward to welcoming everyone.

Der Kunstturm
4 Etagen – 122 Stufen – 24 m

Eigentlich sollte der nicht mehr benötigte Schlauchturm der Feuerwehr Mitte der 90er Jahre abgerissen werden, um Parkraum für das Erlebnisbad “Ronolulu” zu schaffen. Aber Peter Möhl, damaliger Geschäftsführer der Stadtwerke und damit Eigentümer des Turms, schwebte eine sinnvolle Nachnutzung vor. Zusammen mit dem 2. Vorsitzenden des Kunstvereins, dem Architekten Jürgen Lohmann, wurde die Idee geboren, den Turm zu einer Galerie umzubauen.
Lohmann entwarf einen modernen Anbau als Entree, ließ vier Ebenen in den Turm einbauen und führte die erforderlichen Sanierungsmaßnahmen mit viel Rücksicht auf die vorhandene Bausubstanz durch. Seit 1996 ist der “Kunstturm” Domizil des Kunstvereins Rotenburg e.V. und, wie es der Kulturminister des Bundes (Beauftragter der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien), Bernd Neumann, anlässlich eines Besuchs seinerzeit formulierte, “ein Leuchtturm der Kunst in Niedersachsen”.

“Tree” during Ars Electronica, documentation & movie

September 21, 2007


A forest, half virtual, half real, on Marienstraße, Second City, Ars Electronica 2007. As in most computer games and 3D worlds, objects from the real world are “copied” or simulated in simplified form and in accordance with programming constraints. Textures are applied to 3D structures and, depending on lighting conditions, the images making up the virtual scenery are computed in real time during the game. Most trees are constructed out of two interlocking surfaces, each of which is covered with the same tree-view texture. The transparency of the gaps between the leaves and branches is provided by a so-called alpha channel in the graphics file. From a certain distance and the corresponding perspective, this abstracted form of a tree in virtual space doesn’t stand out as a simplification.
