120710: Tiroler Künstlerschaft / Kunstpavillon Matter of Negotiation

Tiroler Künstlerschaft / Kunstpavillon Matter of Negotiation 11.06.10 – 24.07.10 Building blocks of a new EUrope Current and former fellows of the International Fellowship Program for Art and Theory at the Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen negotiated concepts for a new EUrope. Not only since the Greek (financial) tragedy and definitely not only on account of this tragedy did new questions arise about the future and the organisation of the EU member states. In this respect, the negotiators rendered valuable memories about turbulent times: memories of Europe’s self-conception as a community of values and culture, of demarcation strategies here, and of attempts to curry a favour there, of social processes respectively regresses, failed revolutions, colonial heritage, nationalism, uniformity, difference. Ana Hoffner, born in former Yugoslavia and living in Vienna since 1989, examines the organisation of queer sexuality in Europe regarding its instrumentalization: she sees it, among others, as a model of legitimizing the colonization of a “backward” and still to be civilized East through an enlightened tolerant West. For curator Andrei Siciodi, Hoffner’s work is the heart of the “Matter of Negotiation” for a new Europe - constituted of intertwining building blocks. And here colonialism meets postcolonial studies. Brigitta Kuster, another Büchsenhausen- fellow, worked on a cinematic expedition into colonial archives focussing on notes made by the German officer Curt von Morgen on his travels to Cameron in 1892 – “A travers le Camerun du sud au nord”. In a whisper - similar to the fading dream of exotic countries - his expedition-report accompanies this semi-documentary search for traces in a colonized room. Longing for a new world? Mona Vatatmanus and Florin Tudor’s work “Il mondo nuovo”, in the style of the same-named fresco by Giandomenico Tiepolo, thwarts this longing by letting the audience glance absentmindedly at a construction site in Innsbruck. Madeleine Bernstorff’s research on the history of the suffragist movement encounters Ina Wudtke’s ironic work about the outsider roles of DJanes - titled “herspace” in reference to the music network “myspace. Dialogues in the new Europe are manifold – they only need to be held.
