The fluorescent skin of an octopus, a learning algorithm, a lost plane in the East China Sea, an archaeological laboratory - temporal frames and contexts are currently mixed and new hybrid beings, intersections between science, technology, myth and fiction, emerge both in physical and virtual spaces. How does fiction, with the help of its collaborators - invention, simulation and emotion - shape today's (hyper)reality?

The exhibition "f(r)iction in between" deals with contemporary manifestations of fiction in artistic practice, media world and political contexts. The invited artists are united in their interest in articulating the mixture and involvements of this present fictionalisation in their artistic language. In doing so they make use of the staging of fiction from the genre of sci-fi literature, film and media history, national myths and collective narratives. With video installations and photography, object art and performance, the exhibition questions the impact of fiction on the worlds of bodies and emotions and presents surreal and strange scenarios for discussion.

Artists: Rebecca Agnes, Adam S. Fischer & Inga Martel, Wu Chi-Yu, Ya-Wen Fu, Yun-Ting Hung, Kristina Jurotschkin, Marie-Eve Levasseur, Robert Sieg, Wu Pohan

Curators: Kristina Semenova, Ya-Wen Fu

Sedimente - LIA Anniversary Exhibition Celebrating 10 Years LIA

Opening & tour through the exhibition in conversation with cultural protagonists of the city of Leipzig on Thursday, 8 March 2018 at 7pm in the Spinnerei Werkschau.
 
tl_files/spinnerei/News_und_Termine/LIA 10 Jahre.jpg
 
Many artists work intermittently outside of cultures familiar to them. The LIA residency - Leipzig International Art Programme, has supported this form of artistic nomadism for now ten years. Over 200 artists from more than 40 nations have been through this program, enabling them a working stay of three or six months in the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei, the former cotton mill - now cultural hub of international renown. For some artists, this opportunity marked a new chapter of their professional life. The change of location, a studio, as well as the supportive benefit of visits from guest critics.

The exhibition, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the LIA residency, focuses on that which the artists, as cultural ambassadors, have taken with them on their journey, and from which they make visible fragmentarily in their Leipzig work - like sediments, deposits of substances; traces that remain after departing elsewhere. In their trans-cultural context, the artists' works become indicators of political, economic or ecological processes, operating as aesthetic speculations of further developments. The exhibition covers all mediums of contemporary art, and shows a selection of works from over 50 international awardees of the LIA programme.

Aufführung in der Residenz vom Schauspiel Leipzig

The Hairs Of Your Head Are Numbered
Leipzig-Premiere am 28.1. in der Residenz
 
In ihrer neuen Performance macht die Berliner Multimedia-/DigitalArts-Gruppe doublelucky productions den Körper zum Schauplatz: Mittels komplexer Technologien werden die Bedürfnisse und Defizite des Körpers in der digitalen Verstärkung spürbar.

Der menschliche Körper begegnet uns zunehmend als Datenkörper. Bewegungen, Emotionen und Zustände werden vermessen, quantifiziert und in Daten verwandelt. Gleichzeitig sind quantifizierte Daten der Spiegel, in dem wir unsere Körper sehen. Während eine wachsende Anzahl von Menschen Vergnügen daran hat, mittels Life Tracking den eigenen Körper auf Schritt und Tritt zu überwachen, zu analysieren und in soziale Netzwerke zu kommunizieren, steht Smartphone-Usern eine App zur Verfügung, die anhand von Gesichtszügen die Gefühle anderer akkurat einschätzen kann. Auf der Cebit 2016 ließen sich Hunderte Menschen einen Chip unter die Haut pflanzen, über den sie mit ihrem SmartHome oder dem Bankautomaten kommunizieren können. War der Mensch bis vor Kurzem die analoge Lücke in der digitalen Welt, schließt sich diese Lücke mit unserer tatkräftigen Hilfe zusehends. Wir sind infiziert. Unsere Körper werden zunehmend zu Fremdkörpern. Und sind doch das Einzige, was wir haben. Aber wer sind wir? In ihrer neuen Performance „The Hairs Of Your Head Are Numbered“ macht die Berliner DigitalArts-Gruppe doublelucky productions den Körper zum Schauplatz: Mittels komplexer Technologien, die sie für die Theatersituation umprogrammieren, werden die Bedürfnisse und Defizite des Körpers in der digitalen Verstärkung spürbar. Gleichzeitig zielt die Arbeit darauf ab, das enorme Manipulationspotential solcher Technologien aufzuzeigen.

Pictures for Donald

Photography students of the HGB Leipzig and the AdbK Nurmberg

What role does the photographic image of human beings play in contemporary society? To what extent do (self-)staged images taken via Instagram, Facebook, etc. (and the constant circulation of those images) affect the way we engage with the portrait as a traditional genre in the visual arts? These were just some of the questions taking centre stage in early summer 2017 when students of the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and the Academy of Fine Arts Nuemberg got together with Professors Torsten Hattenkerl and Jürgen Teller in the secluded setting of the prefab buildings of the Libken artists’ residence in the Uckermark region of north-eastern Germany. This rather unusual constellation for everyday academic life gave rise to some very different concepts of study and teaching aimed at examining a specific location, oneself, and the Other. The findings of this particular experiment constitutes the first section of the Pictures for Donald exhibition.

Anniversary exhibition - 10 Years Karin Abt-Straubinger Foundation

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of her endowment for the arts, Karin Abt-Straubinger has arranged an exhibit titled „Kunst ist schön und macht Freude” (Art is Beautiful and Creates Pleasure). This exhibit was created in cooperation with artist and curator Jurgen Knubben. Works from selected artists, supported by abt-S over the past ten years, will be displayed. 
The exhibit will first be shown in Galerie ABTART in Stuttgart and then in Forum Kunst Rottweil, an innovative art association. Together with Kristina Semenova, it will be displayed at the Baumwollspinnerei. The exhibit is a very personal selection - the founder’s subjective look on her engagement in the arts. It is a walk through ten years of Karins support of the arts, which will also be documented in the accompanying exhibition catalogue.
 
Participating artists
Suzana Brborovic (Leipzig/Ljubljana), Lucia Dellefant (München), Peter Granser (Stuttgart), Monika Goetz (Berlin), Johannes Jensen (Stuttgart/Berlin), Fabian Kühfuß (Stuttgart), Pia Maria Martin (Stuttgart/ Nizza), Gabriela Oberkofler (Stuttgart), Renée & Thomas Rapedius (Berlin), Nadja Schöllhammer (Berlin), Tuguldur Yondonjamts (New York/ Ulaanbataar), Daniel Wagenblast (Stuttgart).
