Ying Colosseum Vol. 11: Inter-Material-Subject, Oct 2

30 September 2016

Ying Colosseum is presenting its latest ‘volume’, called Inter-Material-Subject at an underground carpark in Berlin (Paul-Heyse-straße 29, 10407 Berlin) on October 2.

The Sunday evening event is the eleventh in a series of one-night-only pop-up exhibitions and happenings organised by Penny Rafferty that have surfaced across the German city. Previous locations include Moritzplatz Roundabout in Kreuzberg, as well as a bakery near Kottbusser Tor and a heavy metal bar called Blackland in Prenzlauer Berg that aqnb reviewed here.

Typical to the nomadic event announcements, there is little information on the themes of the show, other than a reference to its”spectacle”, a title that points to possibly some kind of object-oriented engagement and a list of artists involved, including Milos Trakilovic, Jack Randol, Anya Enot, Tine Günther, Jacob Eriksen, Cleo Kempe Towers, Felix Amerbacher, and Xs=Codien, among others.

See the FB event page for details.**

OnCurating Issue 31 launch @ Motto Berlin, Jul 23

20 July 2016

OnCurating Issue 31: Spheres of Estrangement: Art, Politics and Curating is launching with a party at Motto Berlin on July 23.

The evening includes presentations and introductions by publisher Dorothee Richter  and editor Paul Stewart (on behalf of the editorial team). Penny Rafferty will read from ‘Vampires: Aesthetics to Ethics 1922-to the present day and there will be a performance lecture by Milos Trakilovic.

The issue includes contributions from Joesphine Baker-Heaslip, Jonas Becker, Franco ‘Bifo’ Beradi, Carson Chan, Anke Hennig, and others. It was born out of the Saas-fee summer institute of art and focuses on “estrangement the five editors have applied the thematic approaches from the school back into their own worlds”.

The issue asks “what artistic, architectural and curatorial approaches to estrangement offer current discourse in organisation, aesthetics and activism. The articles unpack estrangement for the political, social and cultural sprint of our time”.

See the FB event page for more details.**

Therapy Session @ TENT, Mar 24

23 March 2016

TENT in Rotterdam hosts event Therapy Session with contributions by artists Amy Suo Wu and Anna Zett on March 24.

The evening comes as part of the group exhibition currently on show, Spending Quality Time With My Quantified Self featuring Wu and Zett amongst others, which looks at how we visualise and ‘install’ the data of our performances and ourselves —from alone voiceovers to underwater works that avoid making trace in favour of immersion in the sensory.

In Therapy Session Amy Suo Wu will talk about her work ‘TLTRNW’ and the origin and effects of text fragmentation and text reduction as influenced by digitisation.

There will also be a screening of Anna Zett’s work ‘Circuit Training’, a video that shares the same name as Zett’s show at Banner Repeater earlier this year, which examines the alternation between rest and action, as well as a ‘water concert’ by Tomoko Sauvage and a performance-lecture on installed work ‘Nothing Really Matters’, by Miloš Trakilović.

The curators of the show will ‘moderate’ the evening, so the press release adds —an apt phrase for an evening of therapy.

See the TENT Rotterdam website for more details.**
