Kunsthalle Exnergasse presents 'No need for references', with the participation of, among others, Yota Ioannidou (DAI,2009 & currently pursuing a PhD in Leiden/The Hague).
No need for references
It is neither a statement nor a command, but investigates the relations between the production of art and knowledge through different incursions into the collective discussion about the concept of artistic research.
The exhibition deals with research per se as an independent gesture. The concept will be put into question by presenting artworks that claim – or not – to be research-based projects. Notions such as knowledge production and power relations as well as various borrowings from traditional research-related imagery also feed the discussion.
Ana de Almeida, Catalina Ravessoud, and Mariel Rodríguez invite Andréas Hochuli, Yota Ioannidou, Nuno da Luz, Perla Montelongo, Sandra Monterroso, Berenice Olmedo, and Alicja Rogalska to perform this exhibition together as a successive collaborative gesture. The programme unfolds in three weekly modules elaborated by one host and two or three guests.
Opening: June 10, 2015, 7:00 pm
Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna
