Fleisch und Stein - "Entscheidungen" in Munich

WhiteBOX München
(Atelierstraße 18, D-81671 Munich)

Opening: Sep 15
Exhibition: Sep 16 - Oct 22

How do women and men move about within the city, what do they see, what do they hear and smell, what do they eat, what do they wear and how do they love. Richard Sennett's »Fleisch und Stein« (Flesh and Stone) acted as an inspiration for this exploration of the bodily experiences of people in the post-modern urban environment.
The urban dynamic originates from the interaction of human bodies within a space; creative potential from the confrontation in social, religious or ideological conflicts. The sensory experience of competitive diversity, of living and symbolised bodies is a basic prerequisite for our sense of human togetherness.
The »Fleisch und Stein« exhibition questions artists from Turkey, Spain and Germany about their views on the transformation of the city, and the appropriation of urban spaces, based on the concepts of: decision, movement and traces, identity and clothing, appropriation of spaces and collective memory.
Artists: Wermke/Leinkauf, Mehtap Baydu, Aline Brugel, Democracia, Diana Artus and Larissa Fassler

 

Performing the Border

Performing the Border
Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Herrengasse 13, Vienna

Jun 1 - 7pm - Opening
on view till Jul 22
Jun 2 - 5pm - Talk with Jana J. Haeckel, Petra Poelzl and artists of the exhibition

The exhibition Performing the Border presents artistic works which are not satisfied with the obvious and evident and choose to focus their attention beyond to the outside. In a present time, where large parts of the globe are marked by racism, isolation, restricted freedom of the press, and “post-factual” debates, the artists plot scenarios in which the dubious categories of the “own” and the “foreign” can become tangible for the viewer. They conceive the complex field of national, ethnic, social, digital, and sexual identity as a realm for experiment.
With: Monira Al Qadiri, Halil Altindere, Francis Alÿs, Ursula Biemann, Tiffany Chung, Julien Creuzet, Khaled Jarrar, Leon Kahane, Martin Krenn/Oliver Ressler, Eva Leitolf, Hana Miletić, Anahita Razmi, Christoph Schlingensief, Hito Steyerl, Wermke/Leinkauf, Clara Wildberger, Miao Ying
