Out Of Bounds

1. February – 2. March 2024
Gruppenausstellung, 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
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.

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“.

Digital Playground „Hack the City“

Juli 14, 2008


Nathalie Boseul SHIN curator at Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea invited me to run the WoW workshop/performance for this exhibition. „Digital Playground“ is an annual media art exhibition started in 2005 at Eujeongbu International Media Art Festival. I am quite exited to run WoW in korean hangul letter system.

22.7.2008 – 24.8.2008

Digital Playground 2008 “Hack the City!”

Recently, the outlook of Seoul is rapidly changing. It means we are surrounded by ‘under construction’ sign boards. Seoul is under-construction. One day, we have the artificial river, Cheonggae-cheon” at the down town, huge buildings, parks. What is changing is not only outlook, but our daily life is also changed. It is no longer surprise thing or imagination to watch TV or talk with friends face to face.
Last year, Seoul city government announced big plan ‘Seoul city gallery project’ which is for making Seoul as the art city. Many art works are installed on the street, overpasses. People can enjoy art in the park. However, take the different perspective, and ask to ourselves. for what we need art installations in public spaces? Furthermore, what is purpose of art in that sense? There are many kinds of arts, but if we can say about contemporary ‘media’ art, it should be more clear about that question. As I quoted above, “artists alone can’t change the world”, but I believe “artists can make people see or think the other side of what is actually happening with artworks or projects”

It is time to “Hack the city!”
The word of ‘hack’ ing does not mean the specific media oriented act in the computer science. It is not used in negative way which is stealing personal information without permission, either. Rather it is right to say that this word is chosen in the metaphorical context: critical thinking, reconsider of our social system and technology. If people think the place/space where they live, reconsider about the technologies which they use everyday like mobile phone, become unfamiliar with familiar things, then we can say that we are close to make the world what we dream.

This project is consists of two parts. First part is related with actual data which artists get from Seoul city such as traffic flow, sound capture and transfer, some official statistic data. For this TMCA collaborated with media lab in universities. EWHA Womans University and Chungang University join with . Through regular meetings and discussions, they are developing new projects for “Hack the City.” The second part is closed to media activism and performance. Like Balettikka Internettikka from Slovenia and Graffitti Research Lab from USA, they go into the society in order to re-thinking about social system by the intervention and physical hacking. Nanna from Korea is doing performance of asking people to buy or sell their time in the public space. She gets into people, and gives them a chance to think their busy life, or time in philosophical sense. Aram Bartholl (from Germany) make workshop which connected with computer game, but in a very analogical way. The results of performance from the workshop, for sure, bring fresh air to the people who will meet them on the street. Also they have a chance to think about computer game or virtuality.
