Founded in 1980, the Fellbach Triennial for Small Sculpture is one of the most longstanding art exhibitions in Germany and attracts ample public attention. The curator of the 14th edition is Brigitte Franzen. Her concept connects art that is 40,000 years old with contemporary positions. Since its founding in 1980, the Fellbach Triennial has been living up to its name and traced the current impact and significance of small sculpture in contemporary art. With its 14th edition the Triennial drills deep into history for the first time and goes back 40,000 years: some of the oldest works of art in human history were found close to Fellbach, in the Swabian Jura. Small sculptures from the Ice Age which might have been created there but might just as well be relics of early migration.

This edition’s curator Brigitte Franzen takes this heritage as a starting point for a profound exploration into the relationship of art and anthropology as well as into the phenomenon of proportion and scale. Small things are portable, they can easily be carried, and yet at the same time have the ability to render palpable something too large or abstract to grasp. Talismans, totems, fetishes, toys, charms or attributes: small sculptures were—and still are—used frequently close to the human body or in its immediate environment. To this day, artworks have their autonomous place in the history of humankind. Constituting an independent source of knowledge and information they are inextricably linked to other fields of human existence and experience, such as religion, society, science, economy, and the otherworldly, to name just a few. About 150 objects selected with this perspective in mind will be shown, including works by more than 60 artists from over 40 nations. Some works will be newly created, others will reflect the premise and its thematic significance and yet move beyond the given dimension—for example in video works.

The exhibition is thus the first to venture on this balancing act between contemporary art and the origins of art 40,000 years ago, seeking to reveal their shared essence: the interest driving humans, our inherent curiosity to make an image of the world through art objects, grasping them as a means to understand and configure the world—and to survive in it. As the curator puts it, “the idea of art as a reflection and expression of curiosity and a thirst for knowledge is to be the leitmotif of the Triennial 2019—emphasized by the subtitle of the project: ‘The Museum of Curiosity.’” To give the concept the proper architectural frame in the historical space of the Alter Kelter, Brigitte Franzen joins forces with the landscape architects of atelier le balto.

TALK Populism vs Democracy and Social Media… and other Disasters Talk with Gregor H. Lersch and Mischa Kuball

MIT - Media in Transition 10 conference: Democracy and Digital Media Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wiesner Building 20 Ames Street, Cambridge, MA 02142 /US
May 18, 2019 // 3.15 – 4.45 pm
In this conversation, Mischa Kuball and Gregor H. Lersch analyze the contemporary artistic and curatorial definitions of public space, democracy, and art. Recently, these three definitions have taken center stage in history and have undergone a substantial change from the interpretations and attributions they had in the 1970s. The current conversation will serve as a platform to discuss, via the project series public preposition and the exhibition and public art project res.o.nant by Mischa Kuball, the latter presented in the Jewish Museum Berlin from 2017 to 2019. Curator and artist examine the aesthetic and curatorial implications of addressing these topics within an extended socio-cultural context.

Nieves de la Fuente: "No habrá servicio los domingos..." im National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts

Im Rahmen der Ausstellung "Post-Digital Anthropocene" zeigt Nieves de la Fuente ihre Arbeit "No habrá servicio los domingos ni en el cumpleaños de la Reina Victoria" ein interaktives VR-Installation.

09.März-16.Juni 2019

“Post-digital Anthropocene - International Techno Art Exhibition” attempts to combine two significant contemporary thoughts, in which the term “post-digital” as art forms resulting from the rapidly changing relationship between mankind and digital technology, and how art, not the digital technology applied, is more tightly connected to human’s realistic conditions of survival; and, the “Anthropocene” lies in the fact that it is an epoch with massive accumulation of entropy, a world where anthropisation is prevalent. This theoretical discourse reveals concerns for blind optimism towards technology and rejects it as the only certainty.

The invited 12 artists depart from their own individual perspectives to discuss their own everyday conditions, to explore the many different issues surrounding themselves and the external environment. On the other hand, as viewers partake in the artworks, they are also forming relationships with the corporeal and perceptual world. The experience is not only a way to get to know the world, but distinctive comprehensions for the world are also unveiled. In conclusion, this exhibition proposes a picture on the contemporary time, and through the somewhat interrelated evolution of natural objects, digital media, and virtual technology. It offers the audience an impression of a multifaceted secondary space that allows the experiences of seeing, participating, and manipulating to be compared and contrasted, with images, robotic installations, and hypertext simulated actions converted and differentiated. Installations, media, and technologies are applied by the contributing artists to create a place of art that is filled with elements of mediation. Through artificial installations that represent natural objects, image installations that integrate the perceptual senses, and virtual technology that highlights the embodiment relation, a post-digital Anthropocene worldview is presented.
