biennale 2007

Show is on...

we (julia staudach, peter scharmüller) arrived at biennale ’07. we are glad to work here, at the press room, where they provide us with free wifi and room to work, with desks and worksphere…

it is the first day of press previews, cameras everywhere. got a little video from youtube in german, where you can see the situation, which is interesting because one seldom sees a press

as journalistic n00bs we are excited to be let into the holy places, and prepare for the following day(s). julia staudach is studying the cataloge we got for a great discount of 50€.

welcome to the tagr coverage of biennale 07, stay tunded, get into arts together with us..

smile machines / unsmile machines – February 2nd

yesterday was the opening of transmediale.

it seems very common (at last it was the same @ ars electronica), that these kind of openings are just for lovely vips. but tada – we are lucky to be one of them (read: got an invatation).

sounds gread? hmm, the unlucky point was the timing… we were about 1o minutes late in the building and had to find out where to go – grabbing up the accreditation costs us another 10 min – then finaly: the entrance door! i tried to open the door, but there were some security guys, telling us that we are to late (…!) and there is a performance going on inside, so it’s not possible to get in… “oh no come on, we came all the way from vienna!”
but somehow he seemed to be an friendly person and after a bit of a mix of begging, wondering and argueing (like: please… what… come on!), he told us that it’s possible to get in when the performance is finished and the introduction lecture is starting.

at this time we where on a – well – but better then nothing level, so we went to the exhipition, to get a litte impression meanwhile.

here are some pics i was taking there:

after that and meeting some people, we went back to hear the introduction from anne-marie duguet (curator). we want to get in… but the securitys guys were stopping us again.

“no, no its forbidden u can’t get in”

“no problem, look here here is oure invitation”

he didn’t look at it, but he got this very offical security-face and then he told us that it’s totally crowded inside and this is why we can’t go in…
just in this very second about 8 people were coming out…

“ok, good when all this people are leaving, there’s more space and we can go inside smile!”

“nonono, it will make to much brouhaha when people are going in…”

“u mean its making more razzmatazz when somebody’s going in, then when sombody is going out ?”

(what the hell?)

this was giving me a head hurly-burly
