Moving with the artist in APPARAT at Kunstverein Braunschweig, Jun 3 – Aug 13

30 May 2017

The APPARAT group exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig opens June 3 and is running to August 13. 

Curated by Christina Lehnert, the show will explore “shift of perspectives and the alliance of humans and machines” and includes work by Aleksandra Domanović, Andreas Fischer, Pakui Hardware, Alexander Kluge, Daria Martin, Sandra Mujinga, Wyatt Nihaus, Margaret Raspé, Raphaela Vogel and Jan Vorisek.

 Inspired by Margaret Raspé (*1933), a filmmaker from the 1970’s who mounted the camera on her head to record her daily activities, the artists respond on what it means to ‘move’ with the artist. Focusing on a younger generations relationship to this idea and our relationship to recording now, the exhibition examines the apparatus as a way to approach the subject of “producing art, expanding human capabilities in the sense of a posthuman man-machine, and as an independent system, that creates its own narratives and immersive spaces.”

Lena Henke, Lisa Holzer, + Margaret Raspé @ Galerie Emanuel Layr, Sep 8 – Nov 11

7 September 2016

Lena HenkeLisa Holzer, and Margaret Raspé are presenting joint exhibition Fever at Vienna’s Galerie Emanuel Layr, opening September 8 and running to November 11.

Curated by _Vienna 2016 and Kari Rittenbach, the exhibition includes new works by the three artists. The exhibition text refers to Prometheus’ “reckless gift to mankind”, one that ensured “never-ending torment, and the invention of civilization as we know it”. It also looks at the ancient Greek root of economics, ‘oikos’ — or “hearth and home”, in relation to the “concept of social reproduction as women’s work in particular (within the patriarchy of Western capitalism)”.

The text further states there are still “plenty of (weak) metaphors for tending to the home fires, an expression which is sometimes taken to mean sustained passion – or maybe: sex”.  It alludes to physical ailments and shame, being other reasons that might cause passion or “the body to burn” enough to lead to —a fever.
