251113 : Galerie im Taxispalais - Foreign & Familiar

Galerie im Taxispalais - Foreign & Familiar 29.09.2013 – 01.12.2013 Ethnology, right next door By Daniela Gregori You've experienced this yourself. You've hardly got everything arranged to suit your own ways, perceptions or views when something turns up which appears not to fit into the cosy scheme of things. Whether it is ethnicities, attitudes towards life or other generations, the reactions swing between unease and curious interest. In the Innsbrucker Galerie im Taxipalais, the exhibition "Foreign & Familiar" addresses this phenomenon of that which is unfamiliar in one's own cultural and environmental world, respectively, how methods from ethnology or sociology are applied in artistic practice. What sounds somewhat theoretical has turned out to be a wonderfully clever and entertaining exhibition, impeccable – including the catalogue. The two curators, Lotte Dinser and Jürgen Tabor have chosen 14 positions – ranging from unfamiliarity in one's own neighbourhood, such as Peter Piller's “Tatort” (TV crime series) houses, the codes of sub-cultural appearances of the fan and youth culture, such as Anna Witt's notably buoyant juxtaposition of rappers and rapping sociologists, from consumer products which, in the case of Mark Dion's "Sea Life" are presented as completely alien in other connections or the approach to ethnicities with all their prejudices. Coco Fusco, together with Guillermo Gómez-Peña let themselves be showcased in a cage in exotic costumes and the artist graphically captures the reaction of the audience. With his women's handbag series, Hans Peter Feldmann fulfilled his childhood dream. He was never allowed to look into his mother's handbag and now he's bought eleven handbags, together with their contents, for 500 euros from women unknown to him - arranged the contents neatly and spread them out. Nothing reveals so much about a woman as the contents of her handbag, it's well-nigh a highly intimate terrain.
