Mladen Stilinović: MONOCULTURE | A Recent History

Mladen Stilinović, An Artist Who Cannot Speak English Is No Artist, 1992

The exhibition MONOCULTURE – A Recent History begins from the principle that any understanding of ‘multiculture’, should necessitate an investigation of ‘monoculture’. The societal understanding of monoculture can be defined as the homogeneous expression of the culture of a single social or ethnic group. The project seeks to approach the notion of monoculture with an open mind. It will thus aim for an analysis of, rather than an antithesis to, monoculture, approaching it not only from historical, social, cultural and ideological perspectives, but also philosophical, linguistic and agricultural ones. MONOCULTURE will provide a tentative mapping, allowing for a comparative analysis of different manifestations of monoculture, as well as their reflections in art and propaganda, seeking to draw some conclusions that might be relevant for society and culture at large.

Gego * Versatorium

(An exercise follows)

Gego * Versatorium

Gego (Gertrude Goldschmidt). Reticulárea. 1969. Installation of steel and metal. Dimensions variable. Museo de Bellas Artes, Caracas.

Saturday 19th September, 12 – 6pm

Collectively, Versatorium will spend an afternoon at the Galerie Martin Janda to translate, read in and with Gego’s posthumously published lines and writings Sabiduras (Wesheiten). The translators will be present and establish various participatory models (maybe spanning above the distance of a Baby-Elephant but below that of three grown-up Elderfants perfectly aligned trunk to tail). Versatorium * Gego will concern itself with exploring, reading, transmitting and transletting lines (Leinen los) in Gego's Sabiduras. Everybody is welcome to tune in and out at trunk-to-tail range.

I want to explain my ideas by presenting [...]

Adrien Tirtiaux: OEVERwerk, Graz

Adrien Tirtiaux, Bauchnabel, 2020

OEVERwerk erweckt die Rösselmühle wieder zum Leben und lädt ein, den Diskurs um die Bedeutung von Arbeit als gesellschaftspolitischem Prozess von unterschiedlichen Seiten zu betreten. Der Raum ist für OEVERwerk das Ausgangsmaterial. Vor Ort zu leben und zu arbeiten bezieht den Kontext des Raumes als inhaltliche Grundlage in die künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit ein. Somit stellt sich nicht die Frage, ob wir Teil der Veränderungen von Arbeit sein wollen, sondern wie und wo wir uns in diesem Prozess positionieren wollen.

Nilbar Güres: CHASING FLOWERS

COUP DE VILLE 2020, Belgium, 11.09.–11.10.2020

Nilbar Güres: CHASING FLOWERS

Nilbar Güres, On my way to my Identity, 2016

The fourth edition of Coup de Ville in 2020 – ‘Chasing Flowers’ – will be a quest for flowers. For the first time since its launch WARP has given the artists a specific theme. The flower is a unique symbol connecting nature and culture. A question is, how we can – through art – create space where not only economical, but also ecological and social values are at stake.

Coup de Ville 2020 combines new site-specific creations, with already existing historical art pieces or oeuvres of sometimes underestimated artists. From the concept of beauty, to economics and migration, and reproduction – all the artists choose their own angle to add to a concept that takes over the city. Visitors discover both public and private spaces, historical landmarks, hidden gardens or undefined space with its own potential.

Participating artists:
Grace Ellen Barkey (BE), Boris Beja (SLO), Stefan [...]

Nilbar Güres, Roman Ondak: Keeping the Balance – Works from the Art Collection Telekom

Ludwig Museum Budapest, 04.09.2020–22.11.2020

Nilbar Güres, Roman Ondak: Keeping the Balance – Works from the Art Collection Telekom

Nilbar Güres, Lovers, 20062011  

Keeping the Balance is a temporary exhibition presenting about sixty works from the Art Collection Telekom. Most of the works are by artists of Eastern European roots.

How can we find and keep the balance in a complex, contradictory and often conflict-laden reality? The question in the focus of the exhibition at once implies hope and formulates a statement that artistic discourse and confrontation can provoke thoughts and convey experiences which are specifically helpful in finding this balance.

To keep the balance, it is important to distinguish contradictions in urging issues, truth from lies, important things from insignificant ones to make smart and well-founded decisions. Art can and does make this possible.

The concept of the exhibition was developed by the curators back in 2019. Since then the world has lost its [...]
