Werner Feiersinger: Body / Building

Galeria Madragoa: 07.09.–03.11.2018

Werner Feiersinger: Body / Building

Werner Feiersinger, Untitled, 2010

MADRAGOA is delighted to present Body / Building, a group exhibition with works by Augusto Alves da Silva, Werner Feiersinger, Steffani Jemison, Ugo La Pietra and Ree Morton, that will take place in both gallery spaces.

The concept of urban space is not only that of a given space, physically defined; many factors contribute to its configuration, which is always the result of an act of interpretation, the object of a representation. The density of this non-neutral space, which returns a plurality of visions to those who approach it, is the starting point of Body / Building, in which the relationship between the human body and the urban landscape is not only the subject of the works gathered in the exhibition, but is also crucial in determining the artist’s observation point, and acts as a guide for an intimate approach to the environment.

At the base of Werner Feiersinger’s practice is a deep relationship with [...]

Adrien Tirtiaux: Pragmatism and Self-Organisation

IKOB, 01.08.–14.10.2018

Adrien Tirtiaux: Pragmatism and Self-Organisation

Adrien Tirtiaux, Eleventh work for IKOB - Heterogenise the Collection, 2014

Pragmatism and self-organisation are, in our opinion, modern strategies with which our democratic societies can best confront the authoritarian and anti-democratic forces. Art has a decisive role to play here.
All invited artists work on open and self-organizing strategies. It is important that the relationship of viewers to the art on display is freed from a hierarchical relationship and transformed into an equality of interaction.
On the weekend of October 6 and 7 a workshop curated by Linnea Semmerling with Jo Caimo, David Helbich and Edyta Jarząb will take place. Based on vocal strategies, the artist test aspects of group synchronization and the proverbial "raising of the voice" together with the visitors.
In cooperation with the music festival MEAKUSMA and the East Belgium Festival, IKOB will also host two concerts on 8 and 9 September. Participating musicians are Wolfgang Delnui, Tomoko Sauvage and Emmanuelle Parrenin.
At the same time as [...]

Jakob Kolding: 20 Propositions

Salzburger Kunstverein, 21.07.–23.09.2018

Jakob Kolding: 20 Propositions

Jakob Kolding, Untitled (Virginia Woolf), 2017

20 Propositions is a series of exhibitions, performances and screenings taking place over the summer in the Salzburger Kunstverein. Each project phase has its own opening event. The Sunset Kino, Austria’s only outdoor avant-garde cinema, includes seven screenings of contemporary video and film.

Curated by Séamus Kealy, 20 Propositions is produced in homage to the exhibition 40 Days 20 Exhibitions, held 20 years ago in the Salzburger Kunstverein, and curated by the director then, Hildegund Amanshauser. This new version takes a different format but arises out a spirit of flux and engagement as the earlier exhibition had. 20 Propositions is also in collaboration with the Salzburg International Summer Academy, which Hildegund Amanshauser currently directs. 20 Propositions includes solo exhibitions, screenings and performances by local, national and international artists, including four Summer Academy Artists, and [...]

Adriana Czernin: Pattern and Decoration. Ornament as Promise

Ludwig Forum Aachen, 21.09.2018–13.01.2019

Adriana Czernin: Pattern and Decoration. Ornament as Promise

Adriana Czernin, Selbstportrait II, 2018

Patchworks and decorative patterns on the one hand and a political-emancipatory claim on the other – the Pattern and Decoration movement combines apparent contradictions. In the mid-1970s, the movement developed in the USA as one of the last art movements of the 20th century, in which the participation of women was as prominent as never before. The movement was supported among others by feminist artists, such as Joyce Kozloff, Valerie Jaudon, Robert Kushner and Miriam Schapiro. In reclaiming fantasy, color, variations of forms as well as sensuality, they radically distinguished themselves from the predominant Minimal Art and Concept Art at that time. The movement questions not only traditional notions of art, but also addresses broader political and social issues like the position of women, of Native Americans, or ethnic minorities in the global art scene. Pattern and Decoration represents a counter project to a male-dominated understanding of art that is globally influenced [...]
