Institutions as a way of life

Lecture by Bernhard Garnicnig
Paulusplatz 5, Seminarraum 2.Stock
1030 Wien

Institutions are an ambiguous subject. Some despise them for abuse of power or dominance over free will and choice, others rely on them to save us from corporate harm or social demise. In the worlds of art I got to know, the relations between artists and institutions are just as varied. I’ve seen short affairs or serious engagements, refusal by principle and embrace of the moment. In the few hours we have together, let us talk about the relationships we want and don’t want, should and should not, can and cannot have with institutions, and how we can work with, for or around them to create the things we would like to live among.

Curating in a State of Crisis

Why hold a Biennial in Kyiv in times of a warfare (with Russia), economic crisis, social insecurity, amidst all the complicated geopolitical constellations Ukrainian citizens find themselves trapped in, a moment that seemingly has other priorities? How could or should, in the given context, art propose its own strategy deriving from its own logic? Shouldn’t art be, in this case, subjugated to the political struggle?

Copying has become ubiquitous yet invisible, both in the digital realm and in the analog world. In the arts-based research project “originalcopy” we develop a working model that subjects the dichotomy of original and copy to a re-evaluation from a post-digital perspective and sheds light on this contradictory phenomenon.

The debate on climate change is highly complex and goes far beyond our imagination, even though we continually invent new words, images, figures and graphs to grasp its complexity. But how do these images and metaphors work? And what imagery lingers?

Hermann Painitz

Studio Visit Hermann Painitz, Thursday May 21st, 12h

Painitz’ Planierung der Alpen (1968-1971) questions the relation of culture and nature and suggests the pouring of concrete and the leveling of the alps in order to emphasize the artificial and the human-made against the naturally grown. His interest in logic and systematic image shaping processes led to this clear demand that nature should not have any impact anymore, as art and nature are contraries and furthermore, nature, especially mountains, is preventing from movement and flexibility.

Johanna Kirsch lives and works in Vienna. Her work deals with the search for freedom: exploring the extent existing ties, norms, regulations and borders are directly relevant or real to individuals and social needs, and how these realms of desires, and their phantoms are defined. Kirsch tests both concrete needs and the corresponding regulations, often physically. http://www.schrik.info
