  • the curator lifting running competition 2003 /part1 THE CURATOR LIFTING-RUNNING COMPETITION Process story by Colonel THE CURATOR LIFTING-RUNNING COMPETITION portrays the 'system' of art biennials in general - not only the Venice Biennial per se. All big art events appear open and accessible to the public, but biennials and festivals follow a number of hidden - but strict - mechanisms in the battle to strengthen ones network. There is a sharp contrast between the cultural events promoting visibility and all the hidden exchanges of information between the people involved. The starting point for the film project is a competition during the opening of the Venice Biennial 2003 on Friday June 14th at 5pm, where the artists formed a pair with their favourite curators and ran with them on their back. It is a race! The artists are tied to the hierarchy - both symbolically and literally - they are the arms and legs of the organizers (n*** positus super humeros gigantis). At the same time, the difference between superstars and underdogs are emphasized. Of course a large cultural event is about culture, but a primary motivation is also to create a club for the players. Anyone can buy a ticket, but coincidently there are secret, closed parties and people are truth stretching to hold on to their privileges. Colonel's film shows the underlying activities that let people be snobby or humble. In the process of promoting the curator lifting-running competition, a number of internationally recognized cultural players are portrayed. The ...

  • John Bock: Surrogat The Netherlands Media Art Institute presented a solo show by the German artist John Bock. The artist was present at the opening on May 12. The exhibition presented a series of earlier and more recent videos and film installations that both condense and enlarge Bock's performance pieces into an endless tour de force of narratives and permanent digressions. John Bock is one of the most influential and relevant artists of his generation. His installations, videos and performances have been exhibited in some of the most prestigious group exhibitions and biennials world wide, including documenta 11 in Kassel, the Venice and Moscow Biennials and Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian. He has had solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2000) and the ICA Institute of Contemporary Arts in London (2005), among other venues. John Bock was born 1965 in Gribbohm, Germany, and lives and works in Berlin. John Bock is first and foremost a performance artist who creates entire universes animated by a kaleidoscopic profusion of objects, materials, fabrics and bizarre prostheses. His films and videos take their primary inspiration from reality, altering it through magnification or deformation. Through his installations, performances and videos Bock has built a playful world, where he mixes art references with theatre, economics and fashion. Everything seems to be connected and dispersed at the same time, in a universe founded on a dramatically personal (dis)order. A dizzying mix of the ...

LC von Sukmeister, PhD Candidate researcher of VU University Amsterdam, collected and sorted over 30 visual art interventions with the idea that their distinct aesthetics reveal the narratives of prevailing political conflicts, whilst providing insights into modern visual culture. This Friendly Video Graffiti Project also examines how local in- and exclusion mechanisms characterize museum and biennial discourses and their iconography. The project provides a multilayered chronology of the art conflict showing video art as sites, or host spaces, of a complex digital and ***ogue hybrid space for new art.

  • Sow Biennials We are now enjoying the wonderful displays provided by biennial plants in our gardens. These include sweet Williams, wallflowers, Canterbury bells, forget-me-nots and honesty. These old fashioned, cottage garden favourites need a little planning but they are worth that bit f extra effort because you do not need any special facilities like a greenhouse to grow them and you can save a fortune on buying them in the autumn from a garden centre. Wallflowers are slightly different to the rest because they are best sown in rows in the garden -- they do not thrive in multipurpose compost. Make shallow drills (furrows) water them well, sow the seeds thinly and cover lightly with soil. As the plants grow they are thinned and the tips pinched out so you have good plants to set out in October, where they will flower. The rest can be sown in seed trays or pots now. You can leave them in a coldframe or outside -- they do not need extra heat. As they germinate, transplant the seedlings into trays or cell trays and make sure you give them liquid feed through the summer so they grow strongly. Plant them out in September or October. Top tip -- lupins and hollyhocks can be grown very successfully this way too.

Awards: He has obtained numerous awards granted by important international competitions dedicated to figurative painting such as Honorary Mention in New York, even thought it is in Italy where the artist reaches the peak of his career in 1979 when he became a finalist for the scholarship in painting granted by the Spanish Academy in Rome where he lives and exhibits his portraits obtaining the Award "Villa Alessandra" in 1981.

  • Moshekwa Langa: In An Other Time at Kunsthalle Bern www.vernissage.tv | For his solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern, South African artist Moshekwa Langa created a body of work specifically for the Kunsthalle. The project Moshekwa Langa developed for Kunsthalle Bern deals with loss. It features reworked drawings, gouaches and collages originally created in South Africa, as well as the installation "Pac Man's Homes", photography, and several videos. More info vernissage.tv "The works on exhibition are suffused with memories of Langa's loved ones and they index the experience and subsequent coming to terms with an accident -- they are manifestations of 'Trauerarbeit', to use Freud's term. They can be described as poetic and sentimental, but above all vulnerable, because they suggest a deep engagement of the artist with his personal life, and, at the same time, serve as a reminder that meaning is slippery." (Excerpt from the press release). Moshekwa Langa was born in 1975 in Bakenberg, South Africa. He participated in the latest Sao Paulo Biennial and the 2009 and 2003 Venice Biennials. Moshekwa Langa held solo-exhibitions at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, the Centre d'Art Contemporain in Geneva, the South African National Gallery in Cape Town, the Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Modern Art Oxford, and many others. Recently his work was included in exhibitions at the Museum Of Modern Art Oslo, The Studio Museum Harlem New York, Wiels Contemporary Art Centre Brussels, Mori Art Museum Tokyo, and the International ...
  • "Where are the artists?" Part 1 RijkskademieLIVE #2, April 26, 2011 "Where are the artists?" A debate with Elena Filipovic, Rossella Biscotti, Tania Bruguera, Moshekwa Langa, and Pavel Büchler, moderated by Philippe Pirotte at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam "Where are the artists?" Why do artists withdraw from large-scale exhibitions or biennials? Why are exhibitions curated by artists so interesting? RijksakademieLIVE #2 will address these questions in a public conversation, taking as a starting point two texts by Daniel Buren: "Exhibitions of an exhibition" and "Where are the artists?". Buren's first text dates from 1972 in a reaction on Documenta V, curated by Harald Szeemann, from which some artists of the likes of Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Donald Judd and Fred Sandback withdrew. The second text was written by Buren thirty years later, as a reflection on his earlier text, for an e-flux project called "The next Documenta should be curated by an artist". He addresses the issue of the curator as creator, the exhibition becoming 'the work' of the curator, and the art works just sole elements within the bigger narrative the exhibition or biennial often puts forward. At the same time Buren emphasises the importance of the artist as curator, addressing issues of contemporary artists in a more interesting way. RijksakademieLIVE #2 will consist of conversations with curator Elena Filipovic, advisor Rijksakademie, three artists who are more or less frequent biennial participants: Rossella ...
