SHARING AND RESPONDING
Symposium
Even if hardly ever described in such terms anymore, cybernetic feedback systems and their logic are ubiquitous today. The idea that, alongside flight paths and temperatures, social interactions and all kinds of decision-making processes can be regulated by now stands beyond question. With a program structured by the horizontal interconnectedness of various keywords, the symposium Sharing and Responding is dedicated to this condition, while simultaneously reflecting the inevitability of cybernetic reciprocity and interference.

The exhibition in two phases presents, develops and picks up strategical inventions and dispositives, that are able to override distances - in a conceptual field, but as well in very concrete forms of translocality as a spacial/temporary dimension. As a start, constellations of artworks have presented that form up around such concrete fields of activities and methodological approaches - device, displacement, lair and journey, activism, flight. They have been generated in a dialogical process with the involved artists, who thus expose themselves to personal experience, and include agents from external networks.

In the temporary Project Space Gumpendorferstrasse, a disused and radically skeletonized groundfloor space, the works are located in analogous spacial constellations, however, communicate comprehensively via the immanent topic of translation - between contexts of provenance, class, and gender, between languages, imaginaries, and forms of action.


The exhibition setting of "Translocal Manoeuvres" is activated by a series of dialogical guided tours and community-building events. This productive element of the presentation inform the second phase of the project, the "Translocal Archives", which will focus on film and media, urban narratives, mediation, and archives.

WHAT IS LEFT TO STEAL
Research Lab
Participants of the artistic and academic Master in Critical Studies programme at the
Academy of Fine Arts Vienna raise the question of what remains after appropriation and
expropriation, colonialism and capitalism. Which positions can the Left assume on the
various ideas of property, appropriation, legitimacy, and theft, which have emerged in recent
public discoursediscussions? How can colonial and capitalist exploitation and extraction be
prevented, or even redressed, even reversed?


Serena Abbondanza, Cristóbal Adam, Ana de Almeida, Lara Bellon, Diedrich Diederichsen,
Ava Binta Giallo, Steph Holl-Trieu, ὑφή, Dila Kaplan, Hanna Kučcera, Helena McFadzean,
Mona Rizaj, and Sophia Rohwetter will install interruptions, passages, landscapes, and paths
in and around Forum Frohner – in an effort to counter the confinement of stealing to mere
metaphor.

with Ana de Almeida, Caroline Garcia, Rami George, Na Mira, Rebeca Romero and agustine zegers


An ordinary turn of phrase, “and so on”, borrowed from David L. Eng’s interpretation of Freud’s writing on melancholia and loss, acts as the title and center of a constellation of artists. The artists provide guidance towards ways of moving through personal and cultural bereavement rooted in the loss of relationships and knowledge that is inevitable. “and so on” considers sites of loss as a space for creation, immeasurable to producing living archives.

By engaging with personal and collective loss, these artists utilize melancholia as a site for generating new perspectives and meanings. Their respective areas of research are driven by personal sensibilities and an urge to understand, redefine, and reinterpret their experience of loss — whether it’s the loss of life, knowledge, or cultural memory. Ranging from performance, video, writing, sculpture, and scent, the works navigate our relationship to memory and the porousness of living archives, questioning: who is empowered to be the authority of shared histories? How do we cope with intergenerational loss of knowledge and affect that is passed down? In response, the artists of “and so on” consider how one can be reshaped in speculative, non-linear, and embodied ways by both profound and ordinary loss.

On the opening day there will be a unique performance by Caroline Garcia.

As an Artist in Residence at das weisse haus in November 2022, Caroline Garcia will develop and present a new performance, that utilizes live digital 3D scanning to archive forgotten choreographies, referencing Indigenous Filipino practices of headhunting and martial arts as an approach to explore personal matriarchal grief. In the re-rendering of gestures from analog (body) to digital (live 3D scanning), Garcia flirts on the spectrum of translatability and untranslatability that occurs in the migratory process.

A digital iteration of Garcia's performance will be captured and available as part of the and so on exhibition, and online at dwhX. Visitors are welcome to come and go throughout the duration of the performance.
