dOCUMENTA(13) Fiona Hall

Fiona Hall, Nº76 Karlsaue, has turned a wooden house in the Karlsaue Park into a  ” hunter´s  den” where she is adorning the walls with creatures  placed on the IUCN Red List – categorized as vulnerable and endangered species. A metaphor for the embattled state and marginalization of these creatures,  the shredded camouflage garment also hints at the irony that these military disguises  are derived from  animal camouflage – one of nature´s inventions commandeered by modern warfare (text:  The Guidebook).

dOCUMENTA(13) Jérôme Bel

Jérôme Bel, Disabled Theater,  Nº26 Kaskade Cinema

In this project he works with the mentally disabled actors of the  Theater Hora, based in Zurich.
Intellectual  declension – i.e., mental disability – is generally thought of in terms of complete otherness to the condition of the intellectually keen and cultivated public of contemporary art. Jerome Bel chooses to  put  this handicap at the center of exactly this public´s attention, adopting it as a key to the reading of what enables us to think of a common dimension. He sheds light  on the dynamics of exclusion that leads to the marginalization of  those considered unabled to produce, exposing how, on the contrary , they are able to question the very mechanisms of representation, and to hint at existence as a non partitioned mode of presence ( text: The Guidebook).

dOCUMENTA(13) Pedro Reyes

Pedro Reyes, Karlsaue  Nº 147

SANATORIUM is an ongoing performative project that involves eight types of therapy sessions offered to visitors of dOCUMENTA (13) “to treat urban ills.” The content and procedures for these sessions are prepared by the artist and carried out by art students who are trained by Reyes as therapists, analysts, and tutors to the visitors. Sanatorium aims to recover  the idea of Sociatry – a term coined in the 1930s by Jacob Levy Moreno, rather than aims to criticize  current institutional settings.

stelarc@Nime congress Sydney

June  2010 @ Nime ( new interfaces for musical expression) congress in Sydney; I got the chance to meet  stelarc before he had to catch the plane to his homebase melbourne. After hearing his one hour lecture (showing some impressive videos of his ear on arm surgery ) the other day, it was great to talk in a more laid back atmosphere; I have to admit he  can hook you into  his passion and brings along an infectious (to stay with terms!)  enthusiasm for the future visions of cyborg art and a lot more… For  the project ear on arm he won the golden nica hybrid art 2010 at ars electronica.
