In collaboration with “House of Open Gates”, Austrian and international artists set out to investigate the conditions that characterise Graz as a city of immigration.
The Annenviertel district – where the city’s new residents, migrants and asylum seekers find a host of networks that help them find their way around and settle in Graz. Numerous shops, run by migrants, political and cultural associations, sports clubs, religious gathering places as well as educational and social facilities, allow them to keep up their native cultural and language traditions.
“New Graz” brings together a number of artistic initiatives curated and designed in a collective process and aimed at investigating the conditions met by new arrivals in districts such as Annenviertel and cities such as Graz. Artist Jun Yang, for example, explores the experiences and motives of Chinese migrants, while artist Moira Zoitl deals with the question of how West African [...]
APAP 5 will present over twenty artists and collectives based in Korea and internationally, as well as artists working in Anyang and the region.
Anyang is located just over twenty kilometers south of Seoul. The fifteenth largest city in South Korea, it takes its name from a historic temple founded during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392), Anyang-sa, named for the Buddhist concept of heaven, or the utopia where people wish to be reborn. Surrounded by the Gwanak, Samseong, Suri, Cheongye, and Morak Mountains, as well as eight rivers and streams, today the city retains a strong spiritual significance.
First developed as a recreation area during the Japanese occupation and an official satellite city during the expansion of Seoul, Anyang suffered massive devastation during the Korean War, industrial pollution from the now defunct textile and paper manufacturing industries, and land displacement from flooding in the 1970s. Its rebirth has split the city in two: the wealthy [...]
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Roman Signer. Films and Installation, hosted at the MAN (Nuoro, Italy, April – July, 2016), A Step Towards the Sea is not only a catalogue, but a book to all effects and purposes, which tells the relationship between one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists and Italy. Signer’s relationship with the country is a special one, bearing in mind some of his most renown works, produced on the Stromboli volcano, or the numerous actions and sculptures that revolve around an Italian iconic subject such as the Ape Piaggio. The central section of the book is dedicated to Sardinia, with a conversation between Lorenzo Giusti and the artist and a photographic essay by Barbara Signer. A text by Barbara Casavecchia contextualizes Signer’s Italian dimension by introducing the viewing of Reisen Italien, the unreleased film included in the enclosed DVD: a personal collection of filmic notes produced by [...]
Centered around gesture in painting and inspired by a recent donation to the Belvedere – the informal work Rougesdifférents sur noir - Liechtenstein (1956/57) by Markus Prachensky – the exhibition explores aspects revolving brushwork by way of juxtaposition.
Prachensky’s work has ostensibly to do with the gestural impulse and the energy transmitted to the canvas. Generally, the brush stroke itself stands as a metaphor for art and refers critically to the closely associated myth of the artist, the question of individual authorship, and artistic authenticity, especially within a contemporary context. This exhibition tries to find answers to these questions and also observes how the reception of the painterly gesture evolved during the ages of mechanical reproduction and medialisation.With works by Thomas Bayrle, Andy Boot, Christian Falsnaes, Roy Lichtenstein, Klaus Mosettig, Laura Owens, Markus Prachensky und Roman [...]
