Project Space Gumpendorferstrasse 6, Vienna. The exhibition in two phases presents, develops and picks up strategical inventions and dispositives, that are able to override distances - in a conceptual field, but as well in very concrete forms of translocality as a spacial/temporary dimension.
The exhibition in two phases presents, develops and picks up strategical inventions and dispositives, that are able to override distances - in a conceptual field, but as well in very concrete forms of translocality as a spacial/temporary dimension. As a start, constellations of artworks have presented that form up around such concrete fields of activities and methodological approaches - device, displacement, lair and journey, activism, flight. They have been generated in a dialogical process with the involved artists, who thus expose themselves to personal experience, and include agents from external networks.
In the temporary Project Space Gumpendorferstrasse, a disused and radically skeletonized groundfloor space, the works are located in analogous spacial constellations, however, communicate comprehensively via the immanent topic of translation - between contexts of provenance, class, and gender, between languages, imaginaries, and forms of action.
The exhibition setting of "Translocal Manoeuvres" is activated by a series of dialogical guided tours and community-building events. This productive element of the presentation inform the second phase of the project, the "Translocal Archives", which will focus on film and media, urban narratives, mediation, and archives.
