QUEER ENCOUNTERS ‐ VIENNA TRANS L. A. 

As part of an exchange project between the CalArts School of Art and students of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, the exhibition QUEER ENCOUNTERS ‐ VIENNA TRANS L. A. presents around twenty‐five international artists mainly working in a queer‐feminist, anti‐discriminatory and decolonial context.

Curated by Zoe Dewitt

Most of the artists have been studying at the contextual painting class of Ashley Hans Scheirl (experimental filmmaker and painter, artist of documenta14 in Kassel and Athens) which is known for its focus on identity/gender topics and the trans‐aspect in art (as in the transposition between artistic media, the transition between sexual categories, the transgression of borders limiting the exploration of new libidinous economies etc.).

The positions united in this exhibition reflect this transitive aspect in various ways: the encounter of different cultural backgrounds with contemporary western subcultures and socio‐political discourses, the shifting of set pieces of myth, folklore, high and low culture, trash and glamour, the exploration of alternate identities as a means of self‐empowerment, the use of the body as a translator of various languages and codes as well as the prima materia of artistic expression from which further alchemical transmutations of desire emanate.

Intergalactic matriarchy, queer utopia, decolonisation of the body, LGBT‐activism, postporn, non‐binary club culture and freesytle rap with white‐cube institutional criticism are just a few keywords which describe the artistic field presented in this exhibition. As such QUEER ENCOUNTERS ‐ VIENNA TRANS L. A. covers a variety of artistic fields such as painting, photography, video, installation and performance with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary methods and collaborations between artists

SubDocumenta

photo by NEGROMA

The subDocumenta’s project is an evening with performances, exhibition, and presentation with a focus on queer feminist artists based in Vienna, occupying the AMOQA – Athens Museum of Queer Arts, on 07th of May.

The event is organized by Pêdra Costa, Ruby Sircar and AMOQA and it presents the multiplicities of techniques, languages and thoughts trough 31 artists. It is an ephemeral and transitional exhibition, a counterpoint to the durational event – the Documenta 14.

The term “sub” from Latin means in this context under the Documenta, in an underground and queer way. According to Judith Butler, queer people do not reach the status of the human being for the Western societies, and expanding this quote we would say that immigrants in EU too.

Queer is a creative and subversive way to co-exist in the world, under the capitalist/colonial cis-tem. At last, what is the sub? The sub is the trick to subvert the status quo making part of it.

Artists:

Adelaida AE, Alexandru Cosarca, Alfred Morina, Mirabella Dziruni, Ben, Danielle Pamp, Eva Hettmer, Florian Aschka, Gin Müller, Hyeji Nam, Jasmin Hagendorfer, Jonathan Hoehl, Julia Fuchs, Julia Goodman, Larissa Kopp, Leon Höllhumer, Lora Sophie, Louise Deininger, Lukas Ponyboy, Michal Rutz, Moritz Gottschalk, Pêdra Costa, Rini Mitra, Sir Meisi (Ruby Sircar and Wolfgang Meisinger), Sophie Utikal, Stefan-Manuel Eggenweber, Tomash Schoiswohl, Wilhelm Binder, Zoe Dewitt, with the the illustrious presence of the Artist Ashley Scheirl.

HEDONISMO CRÍTICO

Equipo Palomar

13/3/2016 – 18h-1h – Sala Hiroshima

Carrer de Vila i Vilà, 67 – Barcelona – Accesible local – Free entry

Equipo Palomar is pleased to celebrate HEDONISMO CRÍTICO -reinvención y reivindicación- a festive marathon with performances and music. For 7 hours, HEDONISMO CRÍTICO takes the Hiroshima bar and theater as a space for queer claim.

We are forced to think about the potential of the party as a space-time bastion to share and generate new ways of affection without exclusions.  For these reasons, we want to create our own party. As it couldn’t be otherwise, we have invited a number of artists to orchestrate this intensity:

Agnès Pe, Andrés Senra, Arabesca, Christina Ratas, Francisco Godoy Vega, Florian Aschka + Georg Klüver, Georges Jacotey, Klau Kinki + Martín Rico, María Perkances + Jordi Flekos, Miguel Benlloch, Negroma, Paquito Nogales, Raisa Maudit, Ramón Guimaraes, Regina Fiz, Solange tô aberta, ¥€$Si.

HEDONISMO CRÍTICO -reinvención y reivindicación- is formulated as a critical reflection on El Palomar as an artistic project and a community itself. It starts from the invitation of Martí Manen inside ‘Quan les línies són temps’ cycle for Espai 13 of the Fundació Joan Miró and carried out in collaboration with the  Sala Hiroshima.

In cooperation with the Paintings Gallery and the Graphic Collection of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna
The exhibition and performance project With Eyes Aghast: Transmannerist Reactions focuses on contemporary queer mannerisms in a critically playful way. The curatorial team’s invitation is aimed at an imaginatively grotesque distortion of the xhibit space and other parts of the Schillerplatz: surprising decorative fine art and architecture forms meet with burlesque and drag formats. Historical mannerism, which marks a rupture in every expression, finds a contemporary mirror in this transdisciplinary project, which pursues what Gustav René Hocke described as “the alchemy of language” in his work Die Welt als Labyrinth (1957, The World as a Labyrinth). Epigrammatically, as it were, the artists’ works counter socioeconomic constraints visible in emerging autocratic forms of power with a queer and decolonizing thrust.
The title of the project refers to the mannerist garden Sacro Bosco in Bomarzo where a sphinx welcomes the visitors entering the site with the following words: “Whoever does not wander through this place with raised brows and lips pressed tightly together would not even admire the Seven Wonders of the World.” The world of wonders that manifests itself in an overall mannerist concept challenges its vis-à-vis to creatively and actively intervene in the circumstances given and engage in their highest form, artistic expression and understanding.
The garden as a site of the manifestation of – and the debate on – artificiality, the disintegration of existing systems, and the reassessment of given hierarchies will be defined and discussed in a contemporary vein: (trans)mannerism may be understood as absolute empowerment on the basis of breaking away from the prevailing conditions and the creation of a physique of one’s own. Flamboyant: being a cyborg and rooted in creole is what the manifesto amounts to.

What is queer today is not queer tomorrow
Exhibition at NGBK Berlin 
14th June – 10th August 2014

The exhibition What is Queer Today is Not Queer Tomorrow explores the theme of queer temporality. The project responds to debates within queer milieus (lesbian, gay, trans*, intersex-, etc.) and to the increasing integration of queer ways of life into the political mainstream. The nGbK becomes an explicit venue of experience, confrontation, reflection, lingering, exchange and departure.
