VALIE EXPORT, Hausfrau. Quelle


Der feministische Aspekt ist Bestandteil der Arbeiten von VALIE EXPORT, Elfriede Jelinek und Olga Neuwirth, die in vergleichbaren Ansätzen die Zusammenhänge von Körperlichkeit, Machtstrukturen und Medialisierung untersuchen. Sie bedienen sie sich der verschiedensten Mittel wie Literatur, bildender Kunst, Video, Film, Fotografie, Installation, Performance, Theater und Musik und immer spielt die Stimme eine wesentliche Rolle.
Noch bis zum 22.03.2012 findet in Wien das interdisziplinäre Symposium ach, Stimme! statt, dass die Stimme als performatives Phänomen in den Arbeiten der drei Künstlerinnen analysieren will. Untersucht wird das Subversions- und Transgressionspotential der Stimme anhand von Fragestellungen nach Selbstermächtigung und Selbstpräsentation der Frau, dem Zusammenhang von Sprechen, Macht und Gewalt, dem subversiven Potential des Lachens, intermedialen Transformationsprozessen sowie dem Stellenwert des künstlerischen Werks von Frauen in der Gesellschaft.

How can we understand the physical flows through this specific place and time in relation to constellations of urban thought? Can the bodily connection to these thoughts be mapped or choreographed or understood? Carolyn Deby (an artist and choreographer and currently artist in residence at UCL Urban Laboratory), who works internationally as sirencrossing, will be concerning these questions from an embodied perspective through movement, sound, text, place and video. Highlighting interactions with spaces, gazes and thoughts that lie beyond the boundaries of the institution and consider interleaved layers of an urban existence.
The site-specific choreography is limited to fourty visitors at a time who`ll be experiencing the performance by travelling together in and around the UCL`s Bedford Way building: In particular, flows between people, ideas, practices and territories within the Urban Laboratory, and between it and its surrounding ‘everyday’ contexts, will be explored as a series of simultaneous ‘cities’. “The movement of audiences through time and space is as important to the work and the experience as is the devised movement of ‘performers’ or the juxtaposition of events, images, words, sound and place that might occur during the course of a piece. The use of place centres on exploring and revealing the psychogeographic topography of specific urban environments”, Deby explains on her web-site, and furthermore: “I am interested in the collision between the built environment of cities and the forces of the natural world. It seems to me that the human body is itself the repository and the meeting point for all the conflicts, dreams and fragments that are generated on the border between concrete and green. I am most interested in the places where the city cracks open, or is forgotten: the places where decay and dereliction open up the possibility of seeing the city in an altered light.”

sex work – an excursion to vienna`s west


Some numbers as basic knowledge: In Vienna there`re 2,200 women officially registered as sex workers, but according to estimates there`re 2,000 – 2,500 non-registered prostitutes. 70-90% of the women are migrants. A number of appr. 100-200 women are working in the streets and on a daily basis about 15,000 men pay for sexual services. (source*)

Due to the big interest in the city walks to places of sex work, there`ll be another chance to join a feministic walk through the western area of Vienna in January 2012. Guided by Elisabeth Kofler, questions concerning the new law of prostitution, which came into effect on November 1, 2012, the places of prostitution, the economic and societal context and the effect of topographic structures of the city will be discussed.

Sex Work – An Excursion to Vienna`s West*
open to all genders
January 15, 2012 13:00 (2-3 hours)
 registration is required until January 5, 2012: frauenreferat@oeh.ac.at
*organized by the ÖH – Department for Human Rights and Social Policy

To get yourself ready, I recommend reading Löw, Martina; Ruhne, Renate (2011). Prostitution. Herstellungsweisen einer anderen Welt. Berlin: Suhrkamp Verlag.

Flyer: DAZ / Julika Gittner


For a period of two weeks London-based artist Julika Gittner has placed her sculptures VANDALS #2 and #3 in public areas of Berlin. Chained to lampposts these objects are both receptacles and provocateurs of aggression and mis-behaviour, but at the same time they are artworks and serve as barometers for the treatment and reception of culture that`s off a museum`s beaten track. Gittner has documented the sculptures throughout these two weeks in Berlin and will present the whole work in a lecture (English) on October 28, 2011, 8 p.m. at DAZ.

VANDALS #2 and #3
October 29 – November 1, 2011
