Ein gemachter Mensch – Künstlerische Fragen an Identitäten

26. Mai bis 16. September 2018

With: Selma Alaçam, Aram Bartholl, Martin Brand, James Bridle, Harun Farocki, Sandra Filic, Iwajla Klinke, Alicja Kwade, Sali Muller, Timea Anita Oravecz, Daniela Risch, Nasan Tur, Anna Witt, Veronika Witte, Naneci Yurdagül

Wer bin ich eigentlich? Und warum bin ich so, wie ich bin? Im 21. Jahrhundert scheint die Antwort auf diese Frage zunehmend komplex geworden zu sein. Herkömmliche Identitäten lösen sich auf oder werden neu interpretiert, zugleich gibt es gänzlich neue Möglichkeiten der Herausbildung von Identitäten. Dabei stellt sich die Frage, wie weit die menschliche Identität ›gemacht‹, also durch eigene Entscheidungen und Handlungen bestimmt wird, und wie sehr Aspekte eine Rolle spielen, auf die man als Einzelner keinen Einfluss hat. Die internationale Gruppenausstellung im Kallmann-Museum geht diesen Fragen aus künstlerischer Perspektive nach.

Unterschiedlichste Aspekte spielen bei der Bestimmung der eigenen Identität eine Rolle. Beginnend bei der Feststellung, überhaupt ein Mensch zu sein, der sich seiner selbst gewahr wird, über die Nationalität, den eigenen Körper, über Riten und Traditionen bis hin zur Sprache oder der gewöhnlichen alltäglichen Umgebung. Dabei hat man zahllose Möglichkeiten, Zugehörigkeiten festzulegen oder auch nur vorübergehend eine andere Identität anzunehmen, etwa im Spiel. Gleichzeitig werden einem fortlaufend Merkmale zugeschrieben, die Identität ausdrücken sollen und mit denen man sich auseinandersetzen muss. Identität ist demnach das Ergebnis eines fortlaufenden Prozesses zwischen Selbst- und Fremdbestimmung und immer veränderlich. Dieser Prozess kann nie in seiner Gesamtheit abgebildet werden. Einige zentrale Aspekte aber werden in Ismaning künstlerisch betrachtet und auf ihre identitätsstiftende Bedeutung hin befragt.

Statement

The city of Melle is unique because of the presence of its mines and its minting which placed it in the heart of Europe for centuries. Quickly, this specificity of the city seemed to us a quite contemporary angle which allowed us to approach subjects such as money, exchange, circulation, value and quite simply stone and ore.

With “Le Grand Monnayage” we had this desire to tell stories and share experiences and as such Melle is a considerable source of inspiration. Here, no white cubes, but a multitude of heritage places open to artists and visitors: three Romanesque churches, one of which was a prison, an ancient court that inspired Jean de La Fontaine, and the silver mines, forgotten for several centuries, which remind us that Melle was the city whose production of silver and coins was the most important in all Western Europe at the time of Carolingians and until the tenth century.

Melle and its many curiosities are a reality that one contemplates only by staying there. Carried by the stories specific to each place, the artists’ investment in this adventure has been total. Fascinated by the Mines, walking the streets of Melle, taking advantage of this unique framework of creation and exchanges, they have made the city a place of projects and production, a territory of art.

Otra visita a la escultura

Otra visita a la escultura

Laboratorio ArteAlameda, Mexico city
29.6. – 2.9.2018
Inauguracion: 28 de junio 19:30 h

curated by: Violeta Horcasitas

with:
Aram Bartholl, Detanicolain, Gino de Dominicis, Roberto Garcia Hernandez, VerOnica Gerber Bicecci, Julieta Gil, Lindsay Lawson, Sara Ludy, Lina Mazenett & David Quiroga, Lorna Mills, Sabrina Ratte, Jason Ronallo, Miguel Angel Salazar, Rick Silva

From the Earth, it seems that it is the Sun that revolves around the planet, it is a so-called apparent movement that gives rise to another concept which is solar time. Two categories have been created to measure this time: true solar time and average solar time. The first one, is based on direct observation, i.e. what we could see thanks to a sundial; the second is based on a so-called fictitious sun, which would be a sun “moving” at a constant speed around the earth all year round.

Another visit to the sculpture is an exhibition that talks about error and success and brings together the work of artists from different generations, but above all, that work from different artistic practices: contemporary artists, visual artists, visual artists or post-internet dialog about repetition, attempts and processes. The pieces move between the dichotomy of the exact and the vague while blurring that dividing line when generating, almost like a sculptural act, a discovery. Some of the pieces can be stated as philosophical, scientific or mathematical axioms as they build and mold matter, whether it’s digital or analog.

Another visit to the sculpture subverts the title of one of the pieces included in the exhibition, which in turn, is based on and modifies the title of one of the pieces. Don Martin’s comic strip: Another visit with the sculptor. It is the story of an artist who after finishing what he considers his masterpiece, shares his work with a collector. For a brief moment, he is recognized by the magnificence of his work. Seconds The sculptor is then surprised to realize that what the collector sees is a residue of marble on the floor and not the sculpture. that he considers his greatest work of art.

We are the internet! Our world is changing. We are witnessing a revolution that for the last thirty years has been changing how we think, communicate, work, and spend our free time. The internet has become a tool and instrument of daily life. It has created a world that we plumb and simultaneously run away from. This process is irreversible and has permanently changed how our society works. This is one of the reasons why it is important to reflect on our situation and our position within it: we aren’t only witnesses to the digital transformation, we are all a part of it, passive or active.

Welcome to the data world! The #DATAMAZE project presents an “extended exhibition”. It combines the concept of an exhibition that is a work in progress with a workspace and library intended for activities and developing collaboration across areas and topics related to a critical reflection on our existence environment, with a lecture space.

Statement:

While Facebook apologizes to the world from high up on its mountain of data, 1.4 billion user passwords party naked on the Internet. Research has shown that the ’123456′ is used for 17% of all passwords. There is so much free WiFi in the air to catch you, it is almost impossible to get online. But there is coffee, so you stay for the deep pocket packet inspection of your traffic. Is this you in the video? Don’t click the link I sent you!

Like the pigeons’ best friend, CCTV cams squat in every high corner of the city protecting us from the future. Will they fall off or be released from their stoical non-presence? A total of 750 info screens have been removed from the still closed / never opened BER airport in Berlin because the technology is outdated. The screens had been running for six years straight without anybody ever having looked at them. Yes, I saw this already.

Please place all your bags on the left tray. Mirrored self-checkout in an uberficial life without cueing is on autoplay. 24 likes. Thank you for being our customer today.
