OSLOO by FOS [dk Copenhagen]

KØS: Museum of Art in Public Spaces presents: OSLOO by FOS :: until August 29, 2010 :: Strandgade 27, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Live Stage: Crash 2.0 – Robert B. Lisek [pl Poznań]

Crash 2.0: Robert B. Lisek :: September 10 – October 18, 2010 :: Opening: September 10; 7:00 pm (with an audio performance, SUNUS) :: Galeria NT

The exhibition of Robert B. Lisek analyzes the context of a “security” idea based on an example of the Smolensk crash. Lisek analyzes the social processes which, through increasing public insecurity, contribute to the legitimacy of violence, deprivation of freedom and civil liberties and the consolidation of the authority as well as its credibility. At the outset, the artist raises questions about the nature of security: What is the basis of security? What ensures it?

He asks about the state of security absence – permanently sustained uncertainty and constant raising of fears to maintain the services and structures responsible for security. Continue reading

The most influential “Tricksters” are the ones in the highest echelons of power who influence political and technological machinations to make their world. Using the subtle methodologies of different media formats, from the news to advertisements to entertainment, they execute their soft powers to achieve their personal goals. Continue reading

David Rokeby, Very Nervous System (1983-)

David Rokeby, Very Nervous System (1983-) Documentary Collection — From the Introduction by Caitlin Jones and Lizzie Muller: […] “This artwork is a particularly interesting case study for the Indeterminate Archive for two reasons. Firstly, it offers an unmatched demonstration of the importance of experience in media art. Very Nervous System is, as many audience members pointed out in our interviews with them, essentially an empty room until someone walks in and activates it. It is a work that is brought into being very literally through experience.

Secondly, it is a seminal work in the history of media art, with a lifespan of more than 28 years. Its celebrity and longevity pose some particularly interesting questions about documentation and contextualisation of media artworks over time and through change. Continue reading
