Italia Happening, Wien

Italia Happening
130 Künstlerbücher

Eröffnung: 18. Februar 2015, 19:00 Uhr

In 130 Exponaten versammelt sich ein aktueller Blick auf die Kunstproduktion Italiens, dessen Beitrag zur neueren Kunstgeschichte sich nicht in der Nennung von Arte Povera oder Maurizio Cattelan erschöpfen kann.
Seit drei Jahren befindet sich das Land in der Ära Post-Berlusconi. Nicht weniger als zwei Jahrzehnte wurde das kulturelle Leben von einer politischen Figur geprägt, die für drastische Kürzungen im Kunst- und Kulturbereich genauso wie für eine privatisierte Medienlandschaft und die bewusste Torpedierung des kritischen Diskurses steht.
Was lässt sich anhand von Publikationen aus der Kunst über die aktuelle Situation Italiens ablesen? Was passiert, was interessiert im Einzelnen? Wer hat das Land unter diesen Bedingungen nicht verlassen, welche Themen und Diskurse werden derzeit verhandelt? Zur Eröffnung: Bernhard Cella im Gespräch mit Gabrielle Cram (Leitung Dramaturgie, Tanzquartier Wien).

Begleitend zur Ausstellung:
Italia Reenactment – Szenische Lesung von Dialogen der niederländischen Künstler Fucking Good Art mit Protagonisten der italienischen Kunstszenen (2012) sowie Beiträgen der Kuratoren Luca Lo Pinto (NERO Magazine, Rom; Kunsthalle Wien) und Andreas Hapkemeyer (Museion, Bozen).
Ausstellungsdauer: 19. Februar bis 30. April 2015.

«Certo, l’animale uomo gode del pensiero, e Malevič senza tentennamenti lo definisce una forma di lavoro, in quanto azione destinata a modificare la descrizione del mondo e il mondo stesso (…)
“Ho sempre pensato che dovrebbe essere esattamente al contrario: il lavoro dovrebbe essere maledetto, come ci insegnano le leggende sul paradiso, mentre il non fare dovrebbe essere lo scopo essenziale dell’uomo. Ma è il contrario che si è prodotto.”
(…) ozio è libertà di vagare, di pensare, di immaginare. Ozio è libertà di essere, è essere.
Il suo opposto non è labor (fatica), in cui piuttosto matura un frutto del vagare, ma negotium, il luogo, il tempo, l’azione di scambiare. Ove avviene una attribuzione di valore, attraverso una relazione di potere.
Ecco ristabilita la concatenazione occultata: (…) ozio – lavoro – negozio – ozio.»

Maurizio Costantino, nota introduttiva a Kazimir S. Malevič, L’inattività come verità effettiva dell’uomo, Asterios, 2012.

Fiction Critique, Rennes

Collection. Un rêve d’éternité
Frac Bretagne, Rennes, FR
Dec 12, 2014–Apr 26, 2015

Victor Burgin, Jocelyn Cottencin, Bruno Di Rosa, Tatjana Doll, & IL TOPO, Robert Filliou, Hreinn Fridfinnsson, Rebecca Horn, Julije Knifer, Bertrand Lavier, Lucas L’Hermitte, Helen Mirra, Gabriel Orozco, Michel Parmentier, Anne et Patrick Poirier, Étienne Pressager, André Raffray, Sarkis, Sturtevant, Rémy Zaugg.

Fiction Critique is an artwork by & IL TOPO produced by FRAC Bretagne (2014) which refers exclusively to the exhibition Collection. Un rêve d’éternité.

The Topist idea of Fiction Critique puts the accent on the first part of the term: FICTION. It ranges from poetic blindness to deliberate satirical falsehood, in an attempt to disorient and distort the experience of the visitor to the exhibition, or the observer of the images the exhibition contains.

While making use of valid historical research, ficTOPOcritique makes no effort whatsoever to provide the public with necessarily reliable documentation or insightful commentary. It enhances or compromises the experience of the artworks of others through a disarmingly dishonest and parasitical approach.

Each selected work from the exhibition/collection is “explained” and narrated by one person, through complete invention and fantasy, and always from a Topist perspective. The “ficto-critics” can be artists, writers, philosophers, scientists, historians, celebrities, as long as they are involved in or associated with the TOPISM movement.

Materials: sound files for personal devices (smartphones, mp3 players, tablets) and illustrated or simply printed texts.
Each “fiction-critic” can use music, sounds, noises, stories, diagrams, hypnotic suggestion or any other technique that can survive encoding in audio files or on the printed page.

& IL TOPO movement is: Armando della Vittoria, Mattia Barbieri, Iain Baxter&, Marco Bazzini, Caspar is Caspar, Rugiada Cadoni, Guillaume Clermont, Gabriele Di Matteo, Francesco Fossati, Stefania Galegati Shines, Piero Gatto, Martín Giménez ex Larralde, Debora Hirsch, David Liver, Fréderic Liver, Francesco Locatelli, Monica Mazzone, Pietro Montone, Giancarlo Norese, Steve Piccolo, Fabien Pinaroli, Luca Pozzi, Gak Sato, Franco Silvestro, Aldo Spoldi, vedovamazzei.
