Die siebte Ausstellung der Reihe KUNST GEGEN RECHTS nimmt den 30. Jahrestag der Pogrome von Rostock-Lichtenhagen als Anlass, um kritisch auf aktuelle, gesellschaftliche Konflikte einzugehen.

Deutschland ist eine postmigrantische Gesellschaft der Vielen. Immer noch wird diese Tatsache viel zu wenig zur Kenntnis genommen. Der Wiedervereinigung am 3. Oktober 1990 folgten rassistische Ausschreitungen und Mordanschläge in Rostock, Mannheim, Hoyerswerda, Mölln und Solingen bis zur Terrorserie des NSU. Es folgten Anschläge auf jüdische Friedhöfe und emanzipatorische Projekte. Eine wiedererwachte deutsche Volksgemeinschaft kroch aus den Löchern hervor.

Der rechte Populismus, der die Kultureinrichtungen als Akteure einer gesellschaftlichen demokratischen Vision angreift, steht der Kunst der Vielen feindselig gegenüber. Die Neue Rechte hat die Kulturpolitik als Kampffeld entdeckt, um ihre völkischen Vorstellungen umzusetzen. Rechte Gruppierungen und Parteien stören Veranstaltungen, verhindern Ausstellungen, greifen in Theater-Spielpläne ein, polemisieren gegen die Freiheit der Kunst, gegen Dekoloniale Erinnerungsprojekte und arbeiten an einer Renationalisierung der Kultur. Es wird einFeldzug gegen zeitgenössische, „undeutsche“ Kunst geführt, die als „neumodische Extravaganzen“ und „exzentrische Randgruppenkunst“ bezeichnet wird, wie aktuell gegen den Kunstverein in Zwickau.

Seit dem Ausbruch der Pandemie, stehen viele Dinge auf dem Prüfstand. Es zeigte sich, wer ein solidarisches Miteinander praktiziert und wer als Pandemiegewinnler oder Coronaleugner die Krise für eigene Interessen nutzt. Bei den sogenannten Querdenken-Demonstrationen kommt es zu einer fatalen Zusammenarbeit verschiedener Akteure. Rechte Gruppierungen und Parteien gewinnen immer mehr an Einfluss. Antisemitismus ist in der neuen Bewegung stark vertreten, wie auch eine Verharmlosung der Shoa und der Gleichsetzung der NS-Zeit mit der aktuellen Situation.

Playmode

26. October 2022 – 16. January 2023
Gruppenausstellung, CCBB – Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Sao Paulo

Since very early on, artists have understood the power of transformation of play, integrating it into their works with distinct purposes -evasion of reality, social construction and transformation, subversion or criticism of the very mechanisms of play and games. The exhibition Playmode proposes a reflection on these aspects and on the period of ludification that contemporary societies are going through, bringing together the work of several artists who adopt the theme and explore new ways of seeing, participating in, and transforming the world, using play in a critical manner.

Enigma

23. February 2023 – 23. February 2024
Gruppenausstellung, 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.

Behind the screens. 50 Jahre Komputerkunst.

Safe Mode: Amplified Realities

8. October 2022 – 8. November 2022
Gruppenausstellung, TILT Platform, The Project Gallery, MISC, BHD Hub Athens, Athens

The current mutated “epidemiological” societies within which we exist reveal that any previous indication we had about the term “safety” is now in limbo. TILT Platform has started exploring and developing the concept “Safe Mode” likening it to the indication safe mode appearing on our computers and smart devices, when they stop functioning properly after a major technical crisis. The process of safe mode emerges as the only possible solution. Comparing this state of technological malfunction to the processes of contemporary life, psychology and human behaviour, the term safe mode acquires an anthropological character.

Participating Artists
Nikos Arvanitis (GR), Aram Bartholl (DE), Browser Based (Zsolt Mesterhazy & Alex Zakkas) (NLD / GR), Sofia Caesar (BR), Paolo Cirio (IT), Manja Ebert (DE), Adrianos Efthymiadis (GR) & Iria Vrettou (GR), For Cancel (Makis Faros, Zoi Pirini, Takis Zerdevas) (GR), Elisa Giardina Papa (IT), Basim Magdy (EGY), Theophanis Melas (GR), Simon Menner (DE), Yorgos Papafigos (GR), Michalis Zacharias (GR), Apostolos Zerdevas (GR)

Curated by
Foteini Vergidou in collaboration with TILT Platform (Makis Faros, Zoi Pirini, Apostolos Zerdevas, Takis Zerdevas)

Gruppenausstellung, T3 Photo Festival Tokyo, Tokio

T3 PHOTO FESTIVAL TOKYO is a photo festival that develops three pillars: (1) photo exhibitions, (2) talks and events, and (3) student projects, with the vision of becoming „an Asian hub for nurturing the next generation of photography culture. After holding its predecessor „Tokyo International Photography Festival“ in Jonanjima, Ota-ku, Tokyo in 2015, the first festival was held in Ueno Park in 2017 as Tokyo’s first outdoor international photography festival. From 2020, the Tokyo International Photography Festival will be held as an urban outdoor photography festival using public open spaces in Tokyo Station and the east side area (Yaesu, Nihonbashi, Kyobashi). The festival will take the margins of the city as a medium to challenge new interpretations of urban space and the possibilities of photography by exhibiting works by photographers and developing events that will generate new human interaction.

I am not a Robot

16. September – 27. November 2022
Gruppenausstellung, Ludwig Múzeum, Budapest

I am not a Robot. On the Borders of the Singularity.

As a harbinger of the (supposedly) imminent arrival of the Singularity, the exhibition explores the powerful impact of technological development on our daily lives.

One of the defining global phenomena of our time is digitalisation, which has transformed human life in an evolutionary leap over the past decades, rewriting centuries of fixed habits, forms and behavioural patterns. The digital turn is still ongoing, with our lives moving from offline to online, and the digital presence growing rapidly. Digital technology in its current state is a new normativity that is part of work and life: not an enemy, not a friend, but a natural part of life…

hi jonathan,

thx for your detailed email and critisism.
i ve been in shangahi last october for 10 days and this was the most
interesting trip i did in the last years. i enjoyed it a lot. yes,
your people are very friendly. yes, you should be proud about the
accomplishments and yes the west has a lot of prejudice about china,
very true. there is a lot to learn about china and i recommended everybody to go there
https://arambartholl.com/blog/2008/10/take-trip-to-china.html

we a re not judging on the whole country and on everybody. there is
also cristisism on western companies on our page. it s not about
comparing who is better.

yes, germany has a dark history. we are quite aware of that and we are
not hiding that. but i hope we learned a lot from that history. and
exactly cause of that it is so important to take care of human rights,
freedom of speech and democracy. we are living in a globilized and
digitized era. its good to be interested in other countries affairs. it
s good to have constructive critisim on each other. because of the fact
that china does so well and is so big (and yes you guys definately doing
a good job in getting 1,4 billion people organized) it also gains a lot of
attention. when you are famous and well known a lot of people talk about
you and look very exactly at what you do. (same for USA). i think china
has to get used to that to some extend. critisism does not mean you are
bad! but i think there is also a big cultural difference in this
point and west is not quite aware of that.

on the other hand this whole project is an awareness campaign on how
important free internet is for the west. a lot of countries do censor the
internet (and china just became the best example). in europe
and especially in germany right now there are groups in politics
and currents who are trying to censor the internet, too. a free internet
is very crucial for getting things improved anywhere. the uncensored net is not
saving the world just by being there but it is a basic layer in the
digital age. we have to learn a lot on how to deal with the new
connectedness and there are fundamental changes going on in many fields.

maybe you wanna also take a look at the project i did in shanghai and
what my thoughts were then.
https://arambartholl.com/blog/labels/jumpnrun.html

i hope my response did made clear that we are not on a hostile mission
at all. i hope that western media becomes less snobish and prejudiced on
china. i hope the best for your country and all your people.

congrats! your english is much better than mine.

best regards
ARAM

Take a trip to China

Oktober 28, 2008

While I was still in Shanghai (eARTS festival) our Firefox add-on ChinaChannel went finally online. Being in China this tool is kind of useless because the web there is just like that. It feels kind of normal and sometimes slow but it is very hard to tell the difference between ‚real‘ or censored timeouts while you surf on political limits.
But after 10 days of Shanghai I recommend everybody not just to take a virtual but a real trip to China. It is kind of easy to sit in Europe/America and to discuss the problems of Asia/China without having experienced these countries. There is a lot to talk about. Go there and take a look.
The Firefox add-on China Channel offers internet users outside of China the ability to surf the web as if they were inside mainland China. Take an unforgetable virtual trip to China and experience the technical expertise of the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (supported by western companies). It’s open source, free and easy.
