Prototypen und andere seltsame Dinge

1. December 2023 – 28. January 2024
Gruppenausstellung, Kunstverein Arnsberg, Arnsberg

Wenn Künstler*innen nach neuen Ideen suchen, erforschen sie Formen und Gestalten, um ihre Gedanken auszudrücken. Oft lassen sie sich von bestehenden Dingen inspirieren und bringen sie in unerwartete Konstellationen. Neue Bedeutungen und Verständnisse der Welt, in der wir leben, kommen so zum Ausdruck. Kunst entwickelt sich zur Formbehauptung. Das Erstellen eines künstlerischen Prototyps oder ein Prozess, den wir Materialisierung nennen, ist dafür ein Schritt zwischen der Formalisierung und der Bewertung einer Idee. Sie ermöglichen die Projektion und Imagination in etwas, das viel größer ist als die Dinge selbst. Für die diesjährigen Jahresgaben 2023/2024 hab en wir eine Auswahl von Arbeiten getroffen, die sich mit dieser Materialisierung künstlerischer Alternativideen befassen und sowohl nach innen als auch nach außen schauen. Sie sind Gedankenkörper und Schritte, um Ideen neue Formen zu geben, die wiederum neue Anfänge und Orientierung in einer Welt erm ö glichen, in der wir uns in zu vielen Bedeutungen verloren haben.

8. July 2023 – 25. February 2024
Einzelausstellung, 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.

Enigma

25. February 2023 – 25. 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.

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“.

Decoding the Black Box

27. January – 2. June 2024
Gruppenausstellung, 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.

Es gibt Teilchenbeschleuniger, die die Ursprünge des Universums erforschen. In den kaputten Fernsehern gibt es kollidierende Elektronen. In diesem Workshop nutzen wir sie, um in Experimenten Licht und Töne zu erzeugen. Der Workshop wird von Künstlerin Darsha Hewitt veranstaltet.

Perspektiven von Kunst im öffentlichen Raum

21. October 2023
Talk, Fachtagung der Kunstkommission Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf

Kunst im öffentlichen Raum – Wirken in der Stadtgesellschaft

5 Jahre Kunstkommission Düsseldorf
Fachtagung zu Perspektiven von Kunst im öffentlichen Raum der Stadt
Zur Sicherung künstlerischer Qualität und um eine neue Planungskultur sowie eine aktive Teilhabe an der Diskussion um die Kunst im öffentlichen Raum zu ermöglichen, hat der Rat der Stadt Düsseldorf die Kunstkommission Düsseldorf etabliert. Diese hat vor fünf Jahren ihre Arbeit aufgenommen und bereits diverse Projekte im öffentlichen Raum realisiert. Aus diesem Anlass lädt die Kommission am Samstag, 21. Oktober 2023, herzlich ein zur Fachtagung zum Thema

Perspektiven von Kunst im öffentlichen Raum.

In Podiumsgesprächen mit Impulsvorträgen sollen die verschiedenen Facetten von Kunst im öffentlichen Raum erörtert werden. Welche Bedeutung hat Kunst für die Stadtgesellschaft? Wie kommt Kunst in den öffentlichen Raum? Oder wie gehen wir mit Bestandskunst um? Das sind nur einige Fragen, die in diesem Zusammenhang diskutiert werden sollen.

Die Veranstaltung ist in zwei Blöcken gegliedert: vormittags werden Strukturen zur Organisation und Realisierung von Kunst für den öffentlichen Raum betrachtet werden, nachmittags liegt der Fokus auf “best practice” mit der Beleuchtung von Herausforderungen an beispielhaften Projekten.

Die Fachtagung findet statt von 10:00 – 18:00 Uhr im Palais Wittgenstein, Bilker Str. 7-9, 40213 Düsseldorf.

Additivism Manifesto

Speed Show LA: Manifesto
http://speedshow.net/manifesto
7:00-10:00 PM, Thursday, February 18, 2016, fb-event

Statement:

A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. A manifesto usually accepts a previously published opinion or public consensus and/or promotes a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes the author believes should be made. It often is political or artistic in nature, but may present an individual’s life stance. [Wikipedia]

Manifestos have always played an important role in art movements. The tutorial for how to become a successful artist could be „Step 1: Write a manifesto!…“ Sometimes the manifesto itself becomes the art work, or in other cases the opposite happens. A kind of unwritten manifesto is in place, an art scene influencing and quoting each others‘ work with their own set of rules and aesthetic ideas. It also happens that an art work has strong manifesto qualities itself or that a single piece represents a whole generation of art. Computer code is by definition a manifesto, a set of rules which are interpreted by the machine. While we’ve been looking at screens and talking about the Internet, the physical manifestation of art work has played a particularly important role over the last ten years.
The very first Speed Show took place in Berlin in the summer of 2010. Six years later, after many Speed Shows world wide and a couple years break, I am very pleased to present the first Speed Show in Los Angeles. More than 20 artists, international and local, from LA, will present a wide range of art from classic works to brand new pieces. It is again an interesting moment (like in 2010) to take a look at the different generations of net artist, Internet artists, art under the influence of the Internet etc … A lot has happened since 2010. Different art scenes developed and moved on, the art world got closer to the Internet and Snowden drained our comfortable bath of naivety. LA 2016! Time for a new manifesto?

What is a Speed Show?
The SPEED SHOW exhibition series was conceived by the artist Aram Bartholl in June 2010. The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe / internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.
The SPEED SHOW exhibition format:
Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and live pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted. Any creative physical modification to the Internet cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their email.)
All shows at http://speedshow.net

The 3D Additivist Manifesto blurs the boundaries between art, engineering, science fiction, and digital aesthetics. We call for you –artists, activists, designers, and critical engineers – to accelerate the 3D printer and other Additivist technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. Morehshin Allahyari is a new media artist, art activist, educator, and occasional curator. She was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States in 2007. Her work extensively deals with the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face every day. Daniel Rourke is a writer/artist and academic based in London.

The Supreme Gentleman
2015
kate-durbin-surpreme-gentleman
The Supreme Gentleman is a performance of Isla Vista shooter Elliot Rodger’s final YouTube address, where he states that he will destroy all “you girls” who have ignored him and treated him “like a mouse.” He claims he will become “like a god.” Not long after filming the video and uploading it to the Internet, Rodger killed six people and injured fourteen others, before killing himself. Like the Oracle of Delphi, I wanted to channel “the god” and transmit/transmute his sick words through my body, the type he had objectified in life (blonde, white). Kate Durbin is a Los Angeles based artist and writer whose work deals with digital media, gender, and popular culture. Recently she was the Arts Queensland 2015 Poet in Residence.,

JODI

2016
kaoemoji-jodi
Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, collectively known as JODI, are rightfully venerated for their countless contributions to art and technology, working as an artistic duo since the mid-90’s. Generally referred to as pioneers of “net.art,” that oft-misunderstood “movement” combining the efforts of artists using the internet as a medium circa 1994, JODI is revered not only for their artistic meditations on the increasing presence of new technology in our daily lives, but also for their fuck-if-I-care attitude toward both the establishments of the technology and art worlds. JODI’s famous five-word “acceptance” speech—if you could call it that—for their 1999 Webby Award in art, simply read, “Ugly commercial sons of bitches.” (Rhizome)

Yung Jake
Both
2015
yung-jake
Yung Jake’s music video for “Both” recalls a night at the club through two interacting Snapchat stories. Each screen gives different perspectives as viewers follow Yung Jake through his night at the club. Viewers need to line up two phones to watch the video in full. The title “Both” refers to the fact that Jake wants to make both: art and hip hop. Jake, who got his BFA from CalArts, turned to the rap world due to frustrations with the art world’s inability to avoid talking about race. “Everytime I made a painting it was about being black all da sudden,” he explained to LA Weekly. “So I started making raps about pretty-hoe-bitches and suddenly blackness wasn’t an issue anymore.”

Guthrie Lonergan
California License Plate Text Editor
2016
guthrie-lonergan
“The California state automobile license plate is arguably the sexiest form of unique alphanumerical government identification. I’ve created a simple text editor which places text typed via the user’s keyboard onto California state license plates, 7 characters at a time. …”Text editor” is probably too flattering a label for it, but it does have a blinking cursor and wraps words at the edge of the page. You can create sentences and paragraphs of license plates. The return key works, too.” Guthrie Lonergan’s work has been exhibited internationally, including the New Museum in New York and MOCA in Los Angeles and the first Internet Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. He is a co-founder of Nasty Nets Internet surfing club and is participating in the upcoming 2016 “Made In LA” biennial at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.

AMERICAN REFLEXXX
2016
signe -pierce
American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Director Alli Coates captured performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour. The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America. Directed by: Alli Coates. Signe Pierce (b.1988) is a photo, video, and performance artist uses who her body, her lens, and her surroundings to frame questions regarding the perception of actual reality within an increasingly digital society. She has notably exhibited and performed at the MoMA, the Metropolitan and the Palais De Tokyo among others. She is based between New York, Los Angeles, and the Internet.

Borna Sammak
Computers are gay
2016

“Been super busy moving out of LA and then in Puerto Rico (don’t ask- I don’t know why) I def won’t be able to swing making something for the speed show – which bums me out cuz I really wanted to. You can use the computers are gay thing if you’d like. But the way I see it – it’s an Aram Bartholl piece not a Borna Sammak piece 😉 Xoxo – we’ll get it right next time” (Borna) “Borna Sammak is a cutting edge contemporary artists I know but often struggles to deliver work on time. Therefore I show his strong quote above in lack of an actual piece.” (Aram)
Alexei Shulgin and Natalie Bookchin
Introduction to net.art
1997
intro-to-netart
Alexei Shulgin & Natalie Bookchin’s “Introduction to net.art” serves as a self aware, tongue-in-cheek manifesto for the net.art scene of the 90’s. The central component of the work is its text – a simplified beginners guide to net.art, followed by DIY instructions on how one can become a net artist. Steps are listed such as “Preparing Your Environment”, followed by potential modes of working and genres one might adhere to for the production of successful net.art. Other sections include “What You Should Know”, “Critical Tips and Tricks for the Successful Modern net.artist”, and “Utopian Appendix (After net.art)”. In 1999 this text was exhibited engraved in stone. This piece effectively embodies the transgressive, and humorously self-aware style of the 90’s net.art scene. (Rhizome)
Eddo Stern
Best Flamewar Ever
2007
eddo-stern

A two channel 3D computer animation diptych recreating an online flame war about degrees of expertise around the computer fantasy game Everquest. The specific points of contention may appear recondite at first glance, but gradually the unfolding narrative acquires an unexpected pathos and reveals a glimpse into the shifting codes of masculinity. Eddo Stern works on the disputed borderlands between fantasy and reality, exploring the uneasy and otherwise unconscious connections between physical existence and electronic simulation. His work explores new modes of narrative and documentary, experimental computer game design, fantasies of technology and history, and cross-cultural representation in computer games, film, and online media.
Merav Tzur,
Confidential Parent/Unborn Child Agreement
2015
merav-tzur
It is only natural that, without much reflection, humans continue to perform the functions which they were born to execute– producing new generations of children at a rate of 131.4 million births per year. But does anyone ever consider asking their children whether they want to be alive? Does anyone ever deliver a document stating terms and conditions, risks and benefits of being alive to their children? This Confidential Parent/Unborn Child Agreement will assure a fair disclosure of what is to be expected if one chooses to experience being alive. Born on a Kibbutz in Israel and immigrated to the US on her own when she was twenty-two, Merav Tzur received her MFA from UC Berkeley and BFA from California College of the Arts. Her work has been shown at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Kroswork Gallery, SOMArts Gallery, SFPAI, A Simple Collective, and Root Division and in Israel.
