Die Stadtgalerie Mannheim zeigt vom 24. Oktober bis 30. November 2014 in S 4, 17 die Gruppenausstellung „Subversive Systeme. Poetische Transfiguration des Digitalen“ mit Kunstwerken von Annie Abrahams, [epidemiC], Volker Hartmann-Langenfelder, plan b und Igor Štromajer. Die Ausstellungseröffnung findet am 24. Juli um 19 Uhr statt.

Die aktuelle Gruppenschau der Stadtgalerie Mannheim widmet sich der Netz-Kunst und ihren Pionieren. Das Internet ist als Medium immer noch sehr neu. Seine Entwicklung verläuft aber so rasant, dass selbst vergleichsweise junge Internetphänomene technisch bereits längst überholt sind und kurios anmuten. Dasselbe gilt für die Mobiltelefonie und ihre Entwicklung. Umso erstaunlicher ist die Ausstellung in der Stadtgalerie Mannheim, die zeigt, wie souverän Künstlerinnen und Künstler das Medium nutzen und nutzten – und wie früh sie sein ästhetisches Potenzial erkannten.

sys23

Die Übersetzung von Digitalem in Analoges ist ein Prinzip, mit dem Künstlerinnen und Künstler versuchen, die Wahrnehmbarkeit von abstrakten Phänomenen zu erweitern und für Menschen direkter erfahrbar zu machen. In der Performance „loveLetter.vbs reading“ lässt die italienische Netzkunstgruppe [epidemiC] den Philosophen Franco Berardi den Quellcode des Viruses vorlesen, der sich ab dem 4. Mai 2000 explosionsartig verbreitetet und einen geschätzten Schaden in Höhe von 10 Milliarden US Dollar anrichtete.

Das Künstlerpaar plan b druckt ihren gesamten privaten SMS-Verkehr eines Jahres während der Laufzeit der Ausstellung auf Endlospapier aus. In einer Performance während der Ausstellung lesen sie sich diese Nachrichten vor.

Das gegenteilige Prinzip wenden Annie Abrahams und Igor Štromajer in ihren Arbeiten an. Sowohl Štromajers und Zormans „Ballettikka Internettikka“ als auch Annie Abrahams „The Big Kiss“ verwenden die Digitalisierung, um klassische Performances zu verändern und zu komplettieren. Štromajers und Zormans „Ballettikka Internettikka“, eine Serie von Performances, die er zwischen 2001 und 2011 durchführte, arbeitete bereits zu Beginn mit dem mobilen Internet – und kam dadurch besonders in den ersten Jahren sehr schnell an seine technischen Grenzen, die in die Arbeit integriert wurden.

Volker Harmann-Langenfelders Arbeit „Beep! For an unspecified number of mobile devices in an unspecified room.“ bewegt sich im Zwischenbereich. Der Künstler übersetzt experimentelle, aleatorische Musik in eine digitale Form. Die Arbeit besteht jedoch aus einem QR-Code, der mit Smartphones bzw. Tablets und den entsprechenden Anwendungen ausgelesen werden kann und den Systemton des Geräts wiedergibt.

“When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it.” 

e-flux

1-1_logo

Not interested in showcasing art, 1:1 would be better called a stopover for art than an exhibition, since 1:1 art can never be wholly contained in the time frame of an event.

The focus of the 1:1 stopover is the relationship between art and life, and art and institution. When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it. This relation can be disrupted by the institution, which is often thought to divorce art from life. Not so, however, when the institution itself tries to establish a similar one-to-one relationship with art by no longer merely representing it, but instead treating it as a partner.

“Le Slovène Igor Stromajer va plus loin avec Expunction, où il a mis en scène, de mai à juin, la suppression de ses œuvres en ligne devenues inactives, qu’il démonte en expliquant leur création et leur environnement technique. Elles sont ensuite mises à disposition dans une archive téléchargeable. La création est là conservée mais tronquée, isolée du monde virtuel auquel elle répondait.”

To Be Continued / Expunction in Paris

“À suivre”: capturer le temps dans la performance contemporaine
Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers

The dance theorist Bojana Kunst is spending weeks with a choreographer, artist, or other cultural producer (Danae Theodoridou, performer and researcher, Boyan Manchev, philosopher and theorist, Ivana Müller, choreographer, Igor Štromajer, internet artist), exploring the different aspects of work processes within contemporary art, their relationship to time and the political, economic and performative implications of such experimentation. These “full-time” meetings are being shared with the public, either during conversations, performance, or by individual appointment. These occasions offer to the public the opportunity to engage themselves with the ways Bojana Kunst and her partners address their relationships to time. The material produced during these meetings and public situations provides the basis for a publication, to appear in 2012.

On May 2011 Igor Štromajer started to delete his net art projects, created from 1996 to 2007 (Expunction, 2011). The process of deletion opened many questions about temporal fragility of contemporary artistic practice, especially when we talk about new media art works. You are invited to join us at the encounter, where we would like to talk about the disappearance of projects and their temporal traces, about the attempts to keep the projects going on or to delete them, transfer them or archive them, to keep them or to leave them going.

24 Nov 2011 at 16:15 | Igor Štromajer presenting: Expunction (Deleting http://www.intima.org Net Art Works, May – June 2011)

Artists who create digital artworks face the problem of preservation much sooner than artists who work with more traditional materials. Artists who wish their work to endure always ready for exhibition, must give some thought to preservation strategies from the moment the artwork is created. The choices of standard tools, documentation and modes of distribution are all part of this process.

An interest in the historical value of digital artworks also encourages the institutions that exhibit them to make this particular value visible, in addition to the appropriate conservation of the work. This leads us to reconsider the conservation strategies which advocate the systematic and continuous updating of non-functioning or obsolete devices.

This symposium aims to give an overview of certain strategies that have been implemented over the past few years by presenting the intertwined approaches and practices of theorists, artists, programmers and preservation specialists.
