DIE OHNMACHT [THE UNCONSCIOUSNESS]:

[using the complexity of global events as an occasion to gain more insight]

the impenetrable complexity of current global events often eludes an objective assessment. the attempt to gain a rational, factual insight into the interrelationships of world politics often leaves us in a state of exhaustion, confronting us with more and more questions the closer we examine them until we are often left with a complete loss of an overview as a result.

global events and global conflicts are carried out locally with their origins also often based in local events. on this basis, we seek to firstly explore the understanding of global contexts from a local perspective. we have invited five politically focused artists from different parts of the world to open conversation with us by using their work as a starting point. each artist has a local, source-based concentration in their work from which global contexts will be developed and examined. in five consecutive, individual presentations, we will get closer to each respective culture’s formative background and current conflicts with the help of each subject’s work as well as using excerpts from the respective body of work as a whole. conversations and public talks with the artists are the second step toward deepening and discovering the origins of local conflicts on global contexts.

addressing these approaches, kathryn gohmert (* 1983 / texas / usa) opens dialogue about both the perspectives and origins of american people regarding their relationship toward violence and weapons and the resulting position of the USA in world events with the mixed media installation, STATE[S] of PANIC, specifically created for this concept. david ashley kerr (* 1986 / victoria / aus) examines the effects of colonialism on modern australia using photography and video works. yang ming (* 1962 / fujian / chn) gives us insight into the current situation in china through a developed conversation. sandra monterroso (* 1974 / gtm) let us participate in her research about the influences of colonialism in the progressive decline of indigenous, south american cultures and till ansgar baumhauer (* 1972 / de) explains excerpts from historical contexts in the conflict between the west and the middle east in his work COLLATERAL DAMAGE (30+).

[program:]

15.11 – 18.11:  yang ming [* 1962 / fujian / china]

the artist, yang ming, is a guest in weimar from the 15th until the 18th of nov, and will hold an interview with konstantin bayer, giving us an insight into the current situation in china on 17th of nov.

21.11 – 26.11  kathryn gohmert [* 1983 / texas / usa]

the artist, kathryn gohmert, will be presenting a mixed media installation, STATE[S] OF PANIC, opening on the 21st of nov at 7pm, as well involving us in an interactive game (11/23/2015, 7 pm), and a public discussion (11.25.2015, 7 pm).

27.11 – 03.12  till ansgar baumhauer [* 1972 / de] 

till ansgar baumhauer shows video, spacial and object works, which deal with historical and current topics about the correlation between the west and the middle east. giving us a chance to delve deeper into his topic, we will be holding a public artist talk on the 1st of dec.

04.12 – 11.12  david ashley kerr [* 1986 / victoria / aus]

david ashley kerr explored in his phd thesis the colonial influences on australian culture and will be escorting us into a public artist talk (date to be announced) to report on the current situation in australia.

12.12 – 19.12  sandra monterroso [* 1974 / gtm]

thank you so much to everyone that made it to the opening night of THE STROKE OF A PEN this past weekend at ifa gallery and joined to help kick off this show in style.

this group exhibition is a collection of multi-disciplinary work and will be running from 21 february – 15 march at ifa gallery, brussels. each work is a separate response to events surrounding the recent charlie hebdo attacks and explores the theme of illustration: it’s power, it’s purposes and it’s limits.

images from the installation and vernissage are just below.
