  2. WE SHOULD TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED – ON THE BUILDING OF AN ALERT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CITIZENRY is an audio-visual installation and performance set of works that address current positions and politics of privacy, surveillance and safety of the global citizenry and their relationship to the military industrial complex. The title is based on a quote of US President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s famous Farewell Address of 1961 wherein he warns of the dangers of an unchecked military industrial complex1, government funding substituting for creative free thinking within higher education, and the extraction of the earth’s natural resources without consideration for the future. Clearly, the address is extremely relevant today in light of the Snowden2 and Klein3 massive surveillance revelations, creative thinking vs directed research as well as the continued resource extraction on a massive global scale. However, the speech is not a dark forecast for the future, but instead states that ‘…an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals…’ The project uses Eisenhower’s speech as the foundation for a set of works which address the central issue of the creating conditions for the development of an ‘alert and knowledgeable citizenry’.

    Aljosa Abrahamsberg, Matthew Biederman, Marko Peljhan and Brian Springer have been involved in activities dealing with the art and science of radio and telecommunications through the prism of radio art, technical culture, television, film, conceptual art, electronic music, media arts and tactical media since the 1980's and 1990's, in projects such as Ladomir-faktura, Makrolab, and Wardenclyffe. They are currently working on 'Systemic tactical environments' implementing the meshing of software defined radios, data aggregation, analysis and display.

  5. Katharina Grosse - Inside the Speaker
    Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf
    30.9.2014 - 1.2.2015

    Die in Berlin lebende und an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie lehrende, international renommierte Künstlerin Katharina Grosse (*1961) ist als Vertreterin einer neuen Herangehensweise an die Malerei berühmt geworden. Ihre Kunst entsteht seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten in einem Prozess der Reflexion über die Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten des Mediums.

    Für das Museum Kunstpalast konzipiert und bildet die Malerin in einem der Ausstellungssäle mit Unmengen von Erde, Farbe und Stoff eine eindrucksvolle, fast 800 qm große, begehbare Installation. In einem zweiten Saal liegt der Fokus auf ihren Gemälden: Mit teilweise bis zu 36 qm großen Leinwänden, nehmen diese, wie ihre Raumarbeiten, beachtliche Ausmaße an und sprengen den Bildraum mittels farblicher Expansion.

    Wir trafen die Künstlerin während des Aufbaus Ihrer Ausstellung zum Interview. Danke!
