Fabrics in Space

Fabrics in Space

Due to the extended lockdown regulations the exhibition can't be opened as planned. More info soon.
 
Textile as an artistic medium can only be thought of in the interweaving of textiles with a cultural and social history, with the development of textile production processes in craft and industrial manufacture, with the global distribution of labour and resources.
This exhibition begins with small, textile pieces, from which the complex systems of the fabric, its materiality, the conditions of its manufacturing and the context of its use can be read. On the basis of these small samples, the textiles could be analysed, enlarged and reproduced, and thus become visible and ready for use once again.

Der Angriff der Gegenwart

Aussichten im Postwachstum

Due to the extended lockdown regulations the exhibition can't reopen as planned. 

Die immer neu entfachte Lust auf nie zufriedenstellenden Konsum, der nach wie vor routinierte Zugriff auf längst begrenzte Ressourcen, Städte in einem nahezu selbstverständlichen Ausverkauf, ungeschützte Arbeit ohne Aussicht auf Sicherheit und Entwicklung, ein aus der Zeit gefallener Automobilismus, gesellschaftlicher Zusammenhalt, der an den Exponentialkurven einer Pandemie bemessen wird, die Suspension von Öffentlichkeit – die Liste wäre weiter fortzusetzen, um doch nur Fragmente einer Realität festzuhalten, die nicht innehält und dabei nie über das Jetzt und den immer entscheidenden Moment hinauskommt.

Another world – base Carousel


https://base.uni-ak.ac.at

The new exhibition format “base Carousel” presents six works of art dealing with the topic “Another World”. In times of lockdown and social distancing, the exhibition asks about the possibilities to think critically about art, culture, society, politics, economy and science. How do policies manifest themselves, whether acute or long foreseeable in their longue durée, i.a. in public, private and digital space or in the form of architecture and technology? Which possibilities open up, which forms of criticism can be transferred to digital and which materials are available for artistic creation?
