13 artists –œin transit– from Canada, the USA, Greece, Chile, Mexico, P.R. China and Germany from the postgraduate program Public Arts and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus University will exhibit work based on the idea of memory and the dissolution of the White Cube. The White Cube can be considered a monumentalized term from a globalized Eurocentric perspective on contemporary art. As public artists, the participants have explored the elasticity of the term's edges, testing for abstract potential, flexibility, and mobility.

In this project these non categorized elements of the public space will be signified as –œRaumprothesen– (space protheses) and hereby declared worthy to design.

Nowadays people are expected to be far more flexible and mobile in their day-to-day activities than in earlier generations. Prompted by changing social structures and working conditions in a globalized economy, increasingly often humans are on the move. Their relationship to their own space or home, which traditionally offered a possibility for retreat, is no longer secure. So how can places of retreat be created in a meaningful form which reflects the circumstances and demands of our time? For the 'places of retreat' project, ADAPTER invited senior citizens and zoologists to collaborate...

Who needs orientation will become a draughtsman. The orientation will be fulfilled by a drawing, which could be real or virtual. As a map it must be retrievable, so that the own standpoint face to face a concrete foreign terrain becomes apparent. Whether the drawing is real or virtual is not essential. In both cases one can speak of a mental cartography. more

Finite Repetition_Nicole Degenhardt/Stine Gonsholt/Berit Hummel


Publication of the exhibition of the same title (19.1. - 16.2.2008)

Text: Nicole Degenhardt

engl., col., 16 pages, 5 €

Repetition is the common artistic approach which runs through the artistic profiles of all three artists. Repetition involves channeling the observer's gaze, reducing the importance of the individual, the formation of a structure, as  well as the possibility of an analysis in which deviations are also conceivable. We can treat 'Finite Repetition' as a series of linear processes, as a temporal repetition bridging the gap between past and present, as a spatial repetition and choreography; or as reproduction, as in naturalist drawing with its deviations from reality or in in the reproduction of the same motif over and over again in digital reproduction. more

Arts and natural science are often seen as opposites. While the precise sciences function as source of measurable truths beyond doubt, the arts are seen as an emotional/moral counterpoint. Essays and interviews deal with the public understanding of art and sciences, focus on existing or missing links and interfaces and reflect the production of images by artists and scientists. more

Das Projekt "Irgendwann ist Schluß mit lustig!" antwortet auf (hetero)sexistische, xenophobe und andere diskrimierende Tendenzen in aktuellen Werbebildern. Neben der Präsentation altbekannter herabsetzender Klischees sind die visuelle Ausbeutung und Vermarktung des vermeintlich normal gewordenen "Anderen" alltäglich geworden. Ausgangspunkt der Gruppenausstellung war eine Kampagne, die 2006 öffentlich als rassistisch und sexistisch kritisiert worden war. ... mehr
