"CON-NOTATIONS"

A workshop and lecture by Nikolaus Gansterer at Villa Arson, in Nice, France organized by artist Katrin Stroebl. In the last years Nikolaus Gansterer developed inter- and trans-subjective forms of notation between the lines of drawing, choreo-graphy and performance. The artist is interested how phenomena of perception could be notated along the categories of time and space, movement and imagination. At Villa Arson Nikolaus Gansterer gives an practical introduction into tactics of materialisation of processes of perception where in-scription and trans-scription is fusing with live-drawing and writing, staging the unfolding of embodied diagrams.

A permutational group exhibition in two parts (opening part 1 on 19 January and opening part 2 on 16 February 2017) by the Institute for Transmedia Arts at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich Vienna, Austria.

The term transmediality signifies that media can be viewed as diverse, incomplete, and interwoven. This openness of media implies that a multitude of possibilities can be called upon. Furthermore, transmediality rejects strict borders between different disciplines in the visual arts while encouraging transdisciplinary approaches – for example, overlaps and tangents with the sciences, technology, or philosophy.

Invited guests ao.  Nikolaus Gansterer, Andreas Spiegl, Helmut Ploebst. Initiated by Jack Hauser & Sabina Holzer. Admission free.

With regard to explore spatiality per se and to co-create new work, Gallery Crone, Vienna will transform in a week long process into an extension of the artists’ bodies based on their interpersonal articulation. The outcome of this experimental dialogue sets up a mutual relationscape between the art, the gallery space and the visitors of exhibition. The exhibition will be opened on the 20th of October, 19:00.

“ANTENNA FUTURA - FUTUROLOGICAL EXERCICES FOR THE UNKNOWN”
On 14 September 2016, at 7 pm opening of the group show Antenna Futura at KEX - Kunsthalle Exnergasse Vienna, Austria. The exhibition convenes contemporary artistic positions that explore a realistic-imminent or a phantastic-distant future. Scientific contributions and workshops on the topic will take place in the framework of the exhibition. In this way Antenna Futura responds to a highly complex and informationally baroque present whose future and potentials seem impervious. In the interplay between different positions and formats Antenna Futura unfolds a soothsaying, inquiring, and fabulating domain in the unknown. Inspired by the setting of a wunderkammer, the exhibition and laboratory are complemented by everyday curiosities and bizarre research objects. Antenna Futura is an exercise in thinking and phantasising about the future to focus on a present yet to be shaped.
With: Anna Artaker & Meike S. Gleim, Charlotte Bonjour, Fuchs Borst, Christian Diaz Orejarena, Marjolijn Dijkmann, Esel durch Wiederholung, Judith Fegerl, Thomas Feuerstein, Nikolaus Gansterer, Lola Göller, Julie Hayward, Martin Kohout, Linda Kuhn, Sara Lehn, Ralo Mayer, Björn Melhus, David Moises, Julian Röder, Till Ronacher, Betti Scholz & Caroline Ruijgrok, Yesenia Thibault-Picazo, Magda Tothova.
