REFRACTED REALITIES at VIDEONALE.17

In optics, “refraction” refers to the bending of a beam of light, a change in direction which occurs at the moment when it passes from one medium to another. Through refraction, the light wave alters course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process. This optical deviation requires us to repeatedly correct our gaze, comparing the beginning and end points of our perception with reality, and bringing the object we see clearly into focus. In its figurative sense, refraction refers to a critical reflection on the means and channels of visualization, and by extension the possibility of a rearticulation of our view of things – how they are, were, or apparently always have been.

Expanding Bauhaus.
New Reflections on the Bauhaus Movement in Time-Based Media Art

Johan Grimonprez

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities.

Christoph Faulhaber: Revolution & Architecture

Kunsthalle Osnabrück / June 15 to October 2, 2018
With "Revolution & Architecture" Christoph Faulhaber (* 1972 in Osnabrück, lives in Hamburg) conceives, builds, designs and opens a whole series of very different rooms in the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. In order to discover the revolutionary aspect of these "architectures", one has to look at the social implications of interior design in general. In the forum the visitor then enters Faulhaber's cinematic autobiography "Every Picture is an Empty Picture" as in the eye of the cyclone: The work is split into 15 individual films and surrounds the visitor in a circle.

Breaking News
Von Kelterborn Collection

Over the past 20 years, the Frankfurt couple Mario and Julia von Kelterborn have put together a collection mostly of politically explosive, socially themed video art and photography by internationally known artists. It is their conviction that art can help us to understand the present day with all its complexity, contradictions and disturbing cruelty, but also its positive potential.

Works


Statement

Based on a composition from the Romantic period that celebrates art as the promise of a better world, already in their first solo show “Holde Kunst (Gracious Art)” at Esther Donatz Gallery Clea Stracke & Verena Seibt explored changes in the notion of art and its instrumentalization in a humorous but critical view. The artists now carry the question of culture’s worth and necessity even further: How important is art in a catastrophe or in a state of exception when the world is out of joint? Does it disappear or can it assert itself? May it even be a human lifeline? For their current show, ambiguously entitled ”Der Fall K.“, Clea Stracke & Verena Seibt have created different scenarios of collapsing and being thrown into turmoil. Besides an installation that violates the spatial structure of the gallery, in videos, photographs and works on paper they confront visitors with states of disbalance thereby offering new perspectives on the relation to art and artists through highly metaphoric connotations of failure, hope, and success.

Clea Stracke (*1982 in Berlin) & Verena Seibt (*1980 in Dachau) who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Munich have been collaborating since 2006. In addition to the Bayerische Kunstförderpreis 2012, they received the Hartware MedienKunstVerein Grant for Women Media Artists as well as the Schloss Ringenberg Grant in 2013. Works by Clea Stracke & Verena Seibt have been exhibited in various institutions, such as Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt/Main, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, and Simultanhalle, Cologne. This year, works in public and art-in-architecture projects will be realized in Munich, Paderborn and Warnemünde. Apart from that Clea Stracke & Verena Seibt participate in shows and screenings at Zeche Zollern, Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund, and Quadriennale Düsseldorf 2014. A monograph on the artists will be published soon.
