1. Art Rules TBA


    from Chicks on Speed Added

    This is an edit of material filmed at Gartenbau Kino, Vienna. Art Rules was a one hour performance consisting on nonlinear sections of lecture, music, rants, dark noise, naked interventions, performance kunst references glues together by Chicks on Speed songs & ending in a paint pile up. The critique of art market is prevalent throughout, although the cast includes Douglas Gordon, a daring golden calf of the art market. In 2007 this cheekiness of performing critique while being funded by a great art institute/ collection, namely TBA-21 was confusing to believers in the market. A few years later the shallowness that the art world has been leveled to by speculation and the crafty crafting of markets by coalitions of journalists, institutes, collectors and art consultants is common knowledge. Art Rules is, in no particular order: Kathi Glas, Anat Ben-David, Douglas Gordon, Alex Murray-Leslie, Melissa Logan, A.L. Steiner & in this case special collaborations with Christopher Just, Laurence Weiner, Florian Hecker and a special appearance of Francesca Hapsburg. A special thanks to her & her team at TBA-21 ( Eva Ebersberger in particular) for daring to produce this project at the time of the Viennese Art Week, which is known for being just commerce, no art. Edited by Kathrin Krothenthaler.

            • Project 3: MoMA Exhibition (Soundings: A Contemporary Score)


              from Haruka Aoki Added 136 0 0

              I chose to animate Florian Hecker's sound piece, "Chimerization," which is on display at the MoMA as a part of the museum's first sound art exhibit. Chus Martinez, the Department Head of dOCUMENTA, writes, "'Chimerization' is a term Florian Hecker uses to allude to [a] complex operation: the artificial attribution of the properties of one voice to another." The artist produced the text for this audio with philosopher and writer Reza Negarestani. In the full version, the text is read aloud in English, German and Persian. According to Martinez, if we "[consider] every movement in the reading, every vocal gesture, every decision dictated by intention or experience, we can begin an infinite choreography of transmutations. An encyclopaedia of properties, of vocal traces, presented and then activated in a piece that combines and recombines the fabulous possibilities of a profuse identity - unsustainable, unintelligible and rich with possibility." Audio: Florian Hecker, "Chimerization."
