Artist Talk
When Science Meets Art
Elizabeth Laplace & Mark Von Rosenstiel

25.06.2016 17:00 @ GlogauAIR

Science and art. Truth, logics, order, objectivity. Emotion, creativity, chaos, subjectivity. Two different worlds in strict opposition to each other. Any intersection between them seems at first sight to be impossible.

As C.P. Snow once wrote, they are two cultures separated by 'mutual incomprehension'. Such is the common view on the matter, mainly inherited from the 19th century.
However philosophers, artists and scientists have been showing since long ago this conception to be misleading. In fact, this widespread idea is only based on caricatural views and not on a deep, well-informed knowledge of both fields.

To dive deeper into this topic, the present GlogauAIR’s Artists' Talk will feature our resident artists Elizabeth Laplace and Mark von Rosenstiel. Both currently resident artists at GlogauAIR, with a background in science and both incorporating science into their current artistic practice, they will be discussing the fruitful dialogue between both subjects.

Elizabeth Laplace – Born in 1990 in the US Virgin Islands, holds a BA in Studio Art and Biology and an MFA in Ceramics. Elizabeth’s work explores spaces and experiments with objects; using the senses to reach an understanding of their function and relationship to myself and others. Through a variety of materials and technology she creates sculptures or installations that attempt to question how we perceive, understand, and engage with our surroundings.

Mark von Rosenstiel – Born in 1982, Mark has studied Complex Physical, Biological and Social Systems, Sculpture, and also holds a BA in Mathematics. Mark is a multi-disciplinary artist using mathematical algorithms that interact with and explore human relationships and emotions. Through feedback loops and technology he strives to reveal the middle ground people occupy - the undeniably human place where truth is agonizingly close, but never touched. Mark’s site specific installations create internalized representations of the human experience that explore the boundary between observation and participation.

Taller sobre emprendimiento cultural
Cultural Enterpreneurship Workshop
La Red

Cultural Enterpreneurship Workshop

Cómo ejercer tu profesión artística y cultural aquí fuera

La Red, en colaboración con el Instituto Cervantes de Berlín y GlogauAir, organiza un taller específico de tres días de duración para artistas, creativos/as, creadores/as y demás trabajadores/as de la cultura – plásticos/as, visuales, escénicos/as, agentes culturales, comisarios/as, músicos, artistas sonoros, diseñadores/as, escritores/as, periodistas, críticos/as culturales… – Todo Gratuito.

El Taller sobre emprendimiento cultural en Alemania dotará a los participantes de herramientas prácticas para introducirse en el tejido cultural -local, nacional, europeo e internacional- ; también servirá para conocer el mercado en Alemania y saber cómo interactuar dentro de él; por útimo se potenciará el trabajo en red como mecanismo de supervivencia y expansión.

La Red dedica en este ejercicio 2016 una parte importante de su programación al sector cultural. Con diferentes encuentros y actividades de networking organizadas para cada mes, el „Taller sobre emprendimiento cultural en Alemania“ es el buque insignia del proyecto. Hay 30 plazas, realiza tu inscripción* cuanto antes aquí.



SOBRE EL SEMINARIO

Con la intención de acercar al participante a su perfeccionamiento profesional, el seminario dirigido a profesionales de la cultura en Alemania divide su temario en 5 grandes grupos:

presentación personal
gestión de proyectos
perfeccionamiento de portafolio
redes sociales
y trabajo en equipo.

Esta segunda edición presenta la NOVEDAD de ir enfocada a realizar un ejercicio expositivo práctico real como proyecto final. Este trabajo conclusivo estará coordinado y asesorado por tres veteranas profesionales y activas en el arte, asentadas en Berlín: Marisa Maza, Anna Talens e Irene Cruz.

En la semana posterior al seminario tendrá lugar, en la residencia para artistas internacionales GlogauAIR, la inauguración/ejecución del proyecto diseñado. Puesto que el espacio elegido para albergar el resultado de nuestro proyecto es un refugio de artistas – es un lugar dispuesto para mostrar trabajos artísticos, pero también es hogar y taller de varios creadores instalados temporalmente en Berlín- , queda la parte expositiva del proyecto abierta a la interacción y la intervención mutúa. Fruto de esta convivencia esperamos crear sinergias y lugares comunes entre los/as artistas residentes y vosotros/as.



METODOLOGÍA.

El taller tendrá lugar durante tres jornadas consecutivas – jueves, viernes y sábado –. Las jornadas de trabajo durante los tres días serán de 10hs a 19hs – aproximadamente -; excepto la segunda mitad de la última jornada, que tendrá lugar en GlogauAIR, el resto del tiempo estaremos en las instalaciones del Instituto Cervantes de Berlín.

La primera jornada centrará su contenido en las formas y herramientas para presentarse uno/a en el entorno profesional artístico, y también en el cómo desarrollar un concepto y presentar un proyecto (project management); el segundo día tratará principalmente sobre el portafolio online/web, online marketing y redes para artistas; el sábado, último día, el equipo de trabajo empleará toda la jornada en el disenyo y desarrollo del proyecto expositivo. Para la realización del ejercicio práctico se formarán grupos en los que se repartirán diversos roles. Conocer la forma de funcionar de las diferentes personas que trabajan conjuntamente para llevar a cabo un proyecto así, es una fortaleza fundamental para enfrentarte al mercado.

El carácter del taller es completamente práctico y participativo, siempre hay lugar para intervenir y en muchos casos también habrá tiempo para recibir asistencia personalizada. Es importante que los participantes aporten entusiasmo y compromiso en todas las materias.

Al final de la primera jornada y de la tercera (última) habrá tiempo y piscolabis para fomentar el networking entre todos los participantes, organizadores, ponentes, anfitriones y demás invitados. Las/los participantes recibiréis información más detallada al respecto cuando se acerque la fecha. Para cualquier duda o sugerencia, podéis escribir a seminario@la-red.eu.



Requisitos para la inscripción:

Enviar carta de motivación (quién soy, qué hago, por qué quiero participar, etc.)
Registrarse en el Consulado de España y enviar copia (imprescindible)
Ser menor de 35 años

Puedes realizar la inscripción enviando un correo a seminario@la-red.eu

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Albert Einstein, 1879-1955

When you look at a wave, it can seem quite mysterious. Lying between air and water, it whispers a simple question; where does the wave exist?
It is a form that doesn't have substance. Vague, the uncertain image is always surging in between imagination and information. Perception is like a wave. And if the perception is a form, our existence would be a form as well. It might be able to say that the existences are continuous of reactions.

When the nominees for the renown Turner Prize 2015 were announced, murmurs of surprise could be heard coming not only from inside, as well as from outside the art world. The reason for this agitation was that, among famous contemporary artists such as Nicole Wermers, Janice Kerbel and Bonnie Camplin, there was Assemble, a collective that merges design, architecture and art in order to develop projects with communities, focused on helping them satisfying some of their real-life needs.


In the end, the 2015th Turner Prize was in fact awarded to Assemble. This time, though, it was not only a matter of recognition, not even a simple matter of winning; it was a matter of shaking and reshaping the concept of art itself, especially when considering that this decision came from within of one of the most highly regarded official institutions of the art world, the Tate gallery.
Socially engaged art is not new. It has its roots in the sixties when this kind of art started to speak up in the art community. However, in a time when the art market is as fierce as ever before, turning the spotlight to a kind of “art that matters and makes a real difference”, that can hardly be bought and sold, requires from us some reflection on the matter.

The artist ceases to be by itself, being the sole master of its own work, creating using inanimate materials that can be easily manipulated. In this case, the artist becomes a real change-maker, the seed planter leader of what will be largely unpredictable, lasting outcomes which will affect real people’s lives and were created through a collective process.

Due to the reemergence of socially engaged art, its importance and intricacy, this month’s GlogauAIR Artist Talk invites you to explore the practical, conceptual and ethical inherent complexities of the challenge of setting up a project that deals with non-art related communities, defies the traditional role of the artist, the role of the art and ultimately of how art is presented to the public.

Antoni Abad – Born in Lérida, Spain in 1956, is currently based in Barcelona. Abad holds a degree in Art History (1979), having studied in Barcelona, Cuenca, London and Perugia. Inicially a sculptor, he later evolved towards video art, net.art and different forms of new media, usually engaging communities. His last project, BlindWiki, is an experimental citizen network where participants who are blind or visually impaired use smartphones to share their findings by posting geolocated audio recordings. This project will also be presented in Berlin Biennale 2016.

Liron Shimoni – Born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1976 is currently based in Barcelona. Shimoni is a photojournalist and a visual anthropologist specialized in social conflicts. He is a regular contributor for Geo magazine, Asia Geographic, Lonely Planet and National Geographic Travel. White Shadows exhibition has been touring around the world since 2010, having been shown in places such as Sidney, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Israel, Granada, Belfast, Georgia (USA) and now Berlin, at GlogauAIR.

Albinism is an inherited disease caused by a genetic defect that reduces the amount of melanin pigment formed in the skin, hair and eyes. Albinism occurs in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world. In the western countries, albinism ration in the society is approximately 1:20,000
In Tanzania, albinism is much common due to tribal marriage and the albinos ration in the society is 1:3000 people.
Due to the albino's difference, myths and legends are attached to their name. 'Albinos have special power, they never die, they just disappear' told me an old man I met in the market of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.


Over the past several years, more than 80 albinos have been murdered in Tanzania and under the direction of witch doctors, have had their limbs stolen for use in black magic potions. Due to this situation, hundreds of albinos have fled their homes, some of them living in the city centres while others find refuge in emergency shelters constructed by Tanzania's government where they now live separated from their families, and in perpetual fear for their lives. However, the number one enemy of the albinos is the sun's intense radiation , which caims hundreds of victims every year. Many of the albinos succumb to skin cancer while others lose their eyesight.

White Shadows project
White Shadows is a benefit project established in Israel by photojournalist Liron Shimoni, in order to collect sunglasses and sunblock for Tanzania's albinos. Amongst the donors were Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University, Seminar Kibbutzim College, The Association for the Blind of Israel, various sunglasses shops along with private individuals from all over Israel that agreed to contribute their time and money to assist this impoverished community. During his journey to Tanzania, Liron Shimoni has distributed the contributions amongst the established emergency centres. The collection efforts still continue; currently the focus is on acquiring sunblock creams and wide-brimmed hats.

Buktapaktop in Berlin

During the Berlin Gallery Weekend the Performance-collective Buktapaktop from Brussels will be present with a small delegation from the group accompanied by some friends from Antwerp.

They will be presenting work at Grüntaler 9 on Friday evening the 29th of April during the ‘Süpperclub’ – intervening in the kitchen as well as in the space itself.

On Saturday afternoon they propose a tea-time (Kafeetisch) pop-up exhibition and various performance presentations at GlogauAIR from 16:00 - with evening presentations commencing at 19:00
These venues will be augmented by various interventions in the public space at various locations in the city, details of which, as well as the general program, will be available at said venues as well as on buktapaktopberlin16.blogspot.be

This activity is part of an exchange begun in 2015 with the visit by Irene Pascual and Patrick Morarescu to Buktapaktop, with a subsequent photo-performance evening in November... this can be seen as a return visit and perhaps the beginning of a wider interchange...


buktapaktop buktapaktop buktapaktop buktapaktop buktapaktop buktapaktop


Buktapaktop is a loose artistic ensemble operating a performance venue in Brussels, Belgium. Its core group consists of eight artists (one duo) that operate individually as well as in group, depending on the situation at hand. The name derives from the depression-era colloquial for reconstituted smokes: “Flor de Buktapaktop” – essentially a hand-picked selection of butts found in the street, used to make new cigarettes. This diverse group often operates & interacts in the public space, as well as in like-minded, alternative venues.

Often departing from a brainstorming session around a (bukta)table, this project for Berlin also proposes a reference to dinnertime, table, round or square, “Kaffeetisch” (tea-time, coffee-table) as basic premise from where various presentations and activities emanate. It can be seen as a return visit from the recent intervention by Berlin based Patrick Morarescu at Buktapaktop Brussels during the terror-lockdown in November last year.


Buktapaktop was represented by
Julien Celdran (B) working often with social issues, operating in public spaces and in conjunction with neighbourhood projects, but also more intimate work using his own body...
Dialogist-Kantor (B/E) Patacyclical duo that have a long history of alternative spaces, festivals, moments of all sorts...
Lise Duclaux (F) also addresses social issues though on a more philosophical scale, as well as making use of as much natural references as possible, she often illustrates her position using wild plants and investigating the life of our fellow animals...
LL and Heinrich Obst (B/D) often collaborate loosely in various ways, often in a hidden, deflective sort of manner, under different guises and formats.

Accompanied by
Irene Pascual (ESP) with experimentation and challenge in the focus, she enjoys collaboration not only with other creators but mostly with audiences, public and visitors
Carina Gosselé & Michael Laird (B/NY) also collaborate but not exclusively, often referring to social and political issues of the day, often in conjunction with other groups, individuals, entities to form part of a greater effort...
Viviane Klagsbrun (B) has retreated somewhat from a background of performance, aktionismus and communality to concentrate on her essential medium of painting and drawing, mainly as an ongoing process of creation and destruction.

Artist Talk
The Epicenter of Everything
in Collaboration with Galleri Syster

15.04.2016
18:00 @ GlogauAIR



The periphery is a geographical location but also a state of mind. In geometry the periphery represents the circumference of the circle, a place that is considered to be surrounding some sort of center. Today's society puts its major focus consistently on the center. There is a sort of consensus around the idea of the center being the well of knowledge and thereby intelligentsia. The epicenter of creation, the condition for development. Perhaps the truth is the exact opposite?


If periphery and center are not defined in terms of geometry or geography, but in a mental and theoretical state, we arrive at a totally different conclusion. Periphery as a motor with a broad base of experience. A guarantor of democracy that includes all and extend everywhere. In this talk art is proposed as a tool to put focus on the periphery as a condition for the center, for the circle has no center if it is not surrounded by that which is all around it.

Gallery Syster is an artist run gallery; a space for contemporary art and a room for talks and discussion. It operates in the small town of Luleå in the north of Sweden since 2006 and relate daily to the periphery in different ways. During 2016 it is working under the title The Epicenter of Everything, where the concept of center and periphery is explored from a social, geographical and psychological perspective. The Epicenter of Everything includes different projects such as an international residency program and a major exhibition. This artist talk in collaboration with GlogauAIR is also a part of the project.

Junichiro Ishii. Based on a site-specific point of view, Ishii is extremely interested in observing the bare cultural aspects. To precisely pursue his pure impression of the site, he does not have a predetermined method, but adds a symbolic form to the cultural peculiarities he experiences and represents them as a site-specific art piece. It is similar to an unusual interpretation of a usual sensation, somewhat like a cultural sketch. Currently, Ishii is a resident artist at GlogauAIR.

Claudia Reinhardt lives and works in Berlin and Oslo. Her work "No place like home" realized in a book (2007 Verbrecher Verlag, Berlin) and a video work, deals with Reinhardt’s own growing - up in a small town in South Germany. It’s about fading memories of a childhood and the the struggle to leave home to find an own identity.

Janne Schäfer. Based between Berlin, Copenhagen and the island of Møn, Schäfer has been working as part of artist duo J&K together with Kristine Agergaard since 1999. Their artistic practice is both research-based and experimental. Althoug fundamentally performative in expression, it engages various ways of relating performance to other media. The duo work investigates the cultural production of identity and civilisation, ultimately exploring the condition and boundaries of human existence. In their explorations they often engage with marginal human phenomena, such as native communities, spiritual groups, ancient cultures or fictive utopias. J&K are also part of feminist collective ff
