Opening, November 15, 2022, 7 pm
Exhibition, November 16 – December 23, 2022

What is the relationship today between the formerly colonized countries of Africa and the so-called Western World? How do economic, political, and last but not least cultural exchanges work, and how are these different levels entangled with one another? Which logics and mechanisms underlie such an interplay? The brand Dead White Men’s Clothes (DWMC) founded by Jojo Gronostay is both...

Riccardo Giacconi

Opening, September 27, 2022
Exhibition, September 28 – November 4, 2022

In his artistic practice anchored in long-term research, Riccardo Giacconi reveals relationships between different temporal and/or spatial momentums. He employs techniques of narration and rhetoric to trace the fracture lines of human coexistence and the history of the twentieth century: What do the disappearance of a cow, possession by a puppet, a paradox in quantum physics, and a bus falling...

Simona Koch

Opening, May 10, 2022, 7 pm
Exhibition, May 11 – June 15, 2022

Natural sciences, like physics, genetics, or biology, as the study of living material, count among the multitude of departure points for Simona Koch. In experimental research setups, which range from expansive installations to artist books, she traces the living in all of its facets, while continuously generating new working methods and procedures. Like a scientist, she works systematically, always reflecting...

Birgit Knoechl

Opening, March 15, 2022, 7 pm
Exhibition, March 16 – April 22, 2022

Like how a line separates two planes from one another, it connects them as well—the line is a constitutive element of the space it traverses: be it on a flat piece of paper or as three-dimensional architecture. Impelled by intrinsic artistic discourses on the drawn line and its relationship to space, Birgit Knoechl’s artworks address topics with social relevance: hybridization...

Statement #18 | Eva Engelbert — Keep moving, also while standing

Performance, January 27, 2022

Historiography is an important departure point for Eva Engelbert’s artistic investigations into the material and spatial conditions of our society. Her sculptures, installations, and architectural interventions incite questions about whose history is being written and which alternative histories are passed on. She links the explicit political implications of her approach with topics centered around the intrinsic formal and aesthetic prerequisites...

Statement #17 | Marie-Andrée Pellerin — Speculative Keys

Performance, January 18, 2022

My favorite key is…
(Finger pushes the letter A.)
You will suddenly understand a completely alien language,
spoken by a foreign species.
Vor langer Zeit machte diese Spezies auf ihrer Reise durch den Weltraum eine Picknickpause auf eurem Planeten.
In ihrer Sprache gab es kein Wort für ‘Müll’, also ließen sie ihren zurück und gingen.

Statement #16 | Eva Seiler & Johanna Tinzl — Beyond Future

Film Screening and Discussion, November 30, 2021, 6 – 8 pm
Exhibition, December 1 – 23, 2021

So hold me, Mom, in your long arms
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms
In your automatic arms
Your electronic arms
In your arms
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms
Your petrochemical arms
Your military arms
In your electronic arms
Laurie Anderson, O Superman, 1982

Statement #14 | Guilherme Maggessi & Rafał Morusiewicz — Duration Trouble (In the Meantime of a Wormhole #1)

Performances, November 16, 2021, 6 and 7 pm
Open space, from 4 pm

“Thinking of a future,” say Guilherme Maggessi and Rafał Morusiewicz, “always implies a horizon.” In their performance at Kunstraum Lakeside, the duo conducts a transmedial experiment dedicated to fabulating a future by employing various theorizations of futures, from José Esteban Muñoz’s queer utopia to Wendy Hui Kyong Chun’s “future as (a) memory.” While the former employs the adjective “future” as...

Statement #12 | Verlag für Handbücher — Safe Operations

Performative setting, July 1, 2021, 4–8 pm

Be it operating instructions or user manuals, technical documentation or service instructions, package leaflets or total solutions … these and other pragmatic, efficiency-oriented printed matter comprise the collections of the Verlag für Handbücher [Publishing House for Handbooks], founded by Anna Schiefer, Björn Kühn, and Oliver Kraft in Stuttgart in 2014. Their stated aim is to “investigate mechanisms of change” through...
