Wild Talks at Interior Architecture Department

Ühiskonna pintslilöök Berliinis, Rosenthaler Platzil Iepe Rubinghi korraldusel./Brushstroke of the society at Rosenthaler Platz, BerlinLähemalt/See more http://www.wooloo.org/exhibition/entry/157557

This Friday, we kick off WILD TALKs, the new public lecture series of our department. The speakers of the series could be characterised by two main threads of action. Some of them have created as much havoc as an elk would, wandering into a city, just by ignoring general customs and habits. Others have unearthed things about life by closely studying the periphery. Summing this up, we believe that these speakers have the potential to spark inspiration in not only interior architecture students, but anyone with any relationship to space around them.
First on the WILD TALKs stage will be Berlin-based Dutch guerilla artist IEPE RUBINGH who dumped 500 litres of paint on Rosenthaler Platz, turning the intersection into a huge canvas and making Berliners guess for months whether this was a ‘Guerrilla Advertising Campaign’ or an artwork. Additionally, he is the inventor of the hybrid sport ‘Chess Boxing’ and is the director of the World Chess Boxing Organisation, with clubs in Siberia, London, Los Angeles and Berlin.
In addition to being the opening speaker for WILD TALKs, Rubingh will also run a workshop for the MA course Wild Studio at the interior architecture department.
WILD TALKs is supported by Astelpajunaps and Valmiermuiža. All talks will be in English.

Kilometre of Sculpture, Rakvere 2016 OPEN CALL

KMS

Selection panel: Andreas Nilsson (SE), Anna Virtanen (FI), Teet Suur (EE) and Siim Preiman (EE)
The organisers of Kilometre of Sculpture (kmS) are pleased to extend a warm invitation to all artists working in any field or genre to submit applications to participate in our open call exhibition, which will be held in the public space of the town of Rakvere in July 2016.
Applications close 23 January 2016
Artists applying to the open call for 2016 will be expected to respond to the specific context of the township of Rakvere, selecting from the multitude of sites and situations that exist across this varied urbanscape, as well as the conceptual considerations presented below by our guest curator, Anna Virtanen. A site map, which can be viewed on our website, shows a circle approximately 1 kilometre across indicating a suggested area within which artists can explore potential sites for their work. As this area is only meant as a guide, sites outside the circle will also be considered if the reasoning behind the choice of site is clear.
The following reflects the initial curatorial impulse:
“How to approach a city unfamiliar to you, in an unfamiliar country? How to work in the public space, with a manner sensitive to the context at hand, when you’re not familiar with the stories, memories or meanings attached to it? As a way of approaching these questions, in our initial theme for the 2016 edition of Kilometre of Sculpture, we take a look at monuments. Considering monuments as manifestations of the invisible, of values, agendas, ideologies or histories. Or looking at them in relation to the notions of permanence and temporality – of the material aspects, of the invisible linked to them. Looking at monuments as representing something that is hoped to be static, emphasizing this even with their material qualities, holding onto something temporary.”
Anna Virtanen
Kilometre of Sculpture
Kilometre of Sculpture is an international outdoor art exhibition held every year in the public space of a regional city in Estonia. The town of Rakvere in northern Estonia hosts the exhibition every two years in conjunction with the Baltoscandal theatre festival, while different regional Estonian towns host the exhibition in the intervening years. KmS adopts a mixed model involving a curated section and an open call to deliver a single cohesive exhibition under the guiding vision of our curator. In addition, kmS also has a side program of exhibitions and events known as kmX that is largely sourced via connections with regional towns in neighbouring countries (often involving the twin town network).

Beatrice von Bismarck open lecture

bismarck

On Thursday, December 17th 6PM we are pleased to host curator and professor of Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig Beatrice von Bismarck who will hold an open lecture „Valorisation Machines or The Exhibition as (Re-)Staging: “When Attitudes Become Form – Bern 1969/ Venice 2013”, Venice Biennial 2013“. The lecture will take place at the main hall of Estonian Academy of Sciences, Kohtu 6.

Exhibitions are in general performative. They bring their exhibits on stage by making them public. Furthermore they involve them in a process of meaning production through embedding them into new constellations. Over the course of processes of shifts and transpositions, additions and commentaries they create different relations between the exhibits and other objects on show as well as display devices, sites and spaces, people and discourses. Exhibitions are thus always temporally defined and this through the temporary structure of their exhibits as much as through their own rhythms, processes and duration.
With the exhibition “When Attitudes Become Form” (Bern, 1969) process and ephemerality have been inscribed not only into the history of art but also into the rather younger history of exhibitions. While a number of other curatorial initiatives around the late 1960s and early 1970s offered similarly oriented contributions to the discourse, the Swiss show and its curator Harald Szeemann acquired a particularly outstanding, almost legendary reputation. The re-staging of this show in 2013 in Venice at the Prada Foundation under the title of “When Attitudes Become Form -Bern 1969/ Venice 2013” implied a de-contextualisation and a resulting shift of meaning not only in aesthetic terms. Hand in hand with the alterations of the temporal and material conditions of the exhibits went a number of re-valorisations and capitalizations, which affected the artistic works, but also the participating artists, the curators and the exhibition itself. The Venice exhibition can thus be treated as a paradigm not only with regards to the theatrical nature of exhibiting but also to the meaning and value production of its performative capacities.

Beatrice von Bismarck (Leipzig/ Berlin), professor at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig for Art History, Visual Culture and Cultures of the Curatorial. 1989 – 1993 Städel Museum, Frankfurt/Main curator 20th Century art. 1993 – 1999 Lüneburg University, co-founder and -director of the project-space „Kunstraum der Universität Lüneburg“. 2000 co-founder of the project-space „/D/O/C/K-Projektbereich“. 2009 initiator of the MA-program “Cultures of the Curatorial“. Research areas: The curatorial; effects of neo-liberalism and globalization on the cultural field; postmodern concepts of the „artist“.
Currently on research leave for a book on “The Curatorial” financed by the “Opus magnum”-program of the VWStiftung.

Publications include: – Games Fights Collaborations. Art and Cultural Studies in the 90s, Ostfildern-Ruit 1996. (ed. with Diethelm Stoller, Ulf Wuggenig); – Interarchive. Archival Practices and Sites in the Contemporary Art Field, Cologne 2002. (ed. with Hans-Peter Feldmann, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Diethelm Stoller, Ulf Wuggenig); – Grenzbespielungen.

Kulturelle Dominanzen in Kunst und Kunstgeschichte (Globalization/ Hierarchization. Cultural Dominances in Art and Art History), Marburg 2005 (ed. with Irene Below); – beyond education. Kunst, Ausbildung, Arbeit und Ökonomie, (beyond education. Art, Education, Work and Economy), Frankfurt a. M. 2005 (ed. with Alexander Koch); – Nach Bourdieu: Visualität, Kunst, Politik (After Bourdieu. Visuality, Art, Politics), Vienna 2008 (ed. with Therese Kaufmann, Ulf Wuggenig); – Auftritt als Künstler (Performance as Artist), Cologne 2010; – Cultures of the Curatorial (ed. With Jörn Schaffaf and Thomas Weski), Berlin 2012; – Timing – On the Temporal Dimension of Exhibiting (ed. with Rike Frank, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, Jörn Schafaff, and Thomas Weski), Berlin 2014; – Hospitality – Hosting Relations in Exhibitions, (ed. with Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer), Berlin (about to come out in January 2016).
