.Dive and Run at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL/MuseumsQuartier Wien. Curated by Matthias Deumlich.
OPENING of the exhibition: March 6th, 19:00
Location: freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL/MuseumsQuartier Wien
Date: Mar 7 to Apr 24, Tue to Sun, 13:00-19:00
"Dive and Run" is the paradoxical title of a multimedia art exhibition conceived by German artist and curator Matthias Deumlich. The contradictory image of diving and running is meant to express the need to slow down and reflect in the midst of all the fast-paced world surrounding us.
Featuring works by eleven artists, including Ingeborg Lüscher, Alexandra Ranner, Costantino Ciervo, Edgar Leciejewski, and Ingolf Keiner, the show take a critical, poetical, humorous, and ironic look at existential questions and problems of our time.
Works on view include the video "Meta-Atem: Über Inspiration und Exspiration" by Timm Ulrichs, in which the artist finds a poignant image for the tragic fact that life always means successively working on its dissipation and disappearance.
In the video "Let's make it compact," Vassiliea Stylianidou ironizes the usual approach of branding and applies it to a place and its landscape, condensing them to a logo and an object that she promotes as an expression of perfect commercial aestheticism. The subtext inspires us to think about the form of existence and quality of life.
As part of the quartier21/MQ Artist-in-Residence program, Una Szeemann and Bohdan Stehlik produced a work specially conceived for the exhibition on the topic "Terra Nullius - no man's land."
Robert Jacobsen's "drum-cymbal-mobile" rotates above it all, floating almost. A sound object with a little fan, it represents the concept of delay in a very direct way. A gentle tapping on the cymbal and big drum communicates across the space with another sound video object by Jacobsen.
The program accompanying the exhibition includes a reading with actor and director Lore Stefanek, who is currently producing a play at the Stadttheater Klagenfurt, and a workshop for children led by Matthias Deumlich.
.FUGITIVE VOICES. ALWAYS FROM SCRATCH. QUEST WITH TEMPORARY VALUE. Collective Lecture Performance.
berlinerpool invites Vassiliea Stylianidou, a Greek artist based in Berlin, to present her newest projects, which implement a method of personal archiving and collecting through collaboration with artists, curators and theoreticians. For Vassiliea Stylianidou the artistic process involves a constant renegotiation of public and private history as well as public and private spaces. Stylianidou´s work deals with the limits inherent in systems of order and discipline such as architecture, nature, family, power, language and collectivity.
During her presentation Vassiliea Stylianidou will introduce her three recent projects:
FROM SCRATCH_a collective text_always from scratch, STUDIOvisits and HOLIDAYS IN GREECE.
After the presentation, a discussion with the audience will be opened up around the notions of collectivity, temporality and emergency. Possibilities of collaborations among cultural workers in Berlin and in Greece will also be explored. Greek participants of the projects FROM SCRATCH and HOLIDAYS IN GREECE will be present.
FROM SCRATCH_a collective text_always from scratch is a collaborative project initiated by Vassiliea Stylianidou. An initial text consisting of beginnings of scenarios for collectivity written by Vassiliea Stylianidou have been distributed by email to nine artists and theoreticians with the invitation to continue from whatever point in the text interests them, free to use any style they wish. When their individual contributions to the text are completed, they are invited to send all the texts to three people of their choice, inviting them to participate in the project on the basis of the above instructions.
STUDIOvisits means STUDIO(to the power of)visits, the artist´s studio –both physical and conceptual- that visits… STUDIOvisits is a project of encounters taken in random intervals between artists, theorists, architects and the public. STUDIOvisits´ vehicles are concepts, texts, objects, ideas and processes moving/migrating/translating around in reciprocal directions. STUDIOvisits´ itineraries are translocal. STUDIOvisits' desire is to transfer, postpone and prolong the processes of reflection upon concepts and objects that surround and construct the so-called artwork. STUDIOvisits is a thought- and praxis-based artistic enterprise that aims to overcome the reduction of the artwork to a mere commodity that follows the laws of the (art) market.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE
The frame of HOLIDAYS IN GREECE is two-folded:
_ an installation was set up with works that create multiple narrations; a network of associations and interconnections
_within the installation, artists, theorists, poets and the general public are invited to send and/or perform a statement: an extended notion of a performative text that is related to the greek/european debt crisis.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE´s starting point is the wish to understand what we cannot so far understand. HOLIDAYS IN GREECE builds up a stage for multiple voices to be heard, so that impossible liaisons, associations and alliances may be discovered or created, within the condition of the current debt crisis.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE explores the meaning of a possible symbolic profit of the debt.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE_a performative installation conceived and realised by STUDIOvisits with the support of LoandBehold.

.FROM SCRATCH_a collective text_always for scratch in the exhibition The Symptom 3: To the limits of togetherness, Old Hospital, Amfisa, GR. Curated by Kostis Stafylakis. Production: The Symptom Projects. http://the-symptom-projects.blogspot.de
Participating artists: Omada Filopapou, Jannis Theodoropoulos, Vassiliea Stylianidou, Vassilis Vlastaras, Maria Glyka, Jannis Grigoriadis, Jannis Isidorou, Giorgos Gyparakis, Despina Meimaroglou, Mary Zygouri, Maria Paschalidou, Anna Lascari, Dimitris Dokatzis, Poka Yio, Jannis Skaltsas, Jannis Sinioroglou, Tasos Papatsoris, De-Regulators (Panos Kompatsiaris / Hypatia Vourloumis / Marios Chatziprokopiou / Mary Zygouri)
The work FROM SCRATCH_a collective text_always for scratch is twofold. One part of the work comprises an installation in the physical exhibition space in Amfissa, GR. The installation is made up of 5,000 photocopies of a text with beginnings of scenarios for collectivity, 5 black metal electric fans which are switched on, the air current generated by the fans, a video projection and imaginary sound.
The second aspect of the work is the collective process of continuing the elaboration/"construction" of this text.
The collective process of continuation/"construction" of this text takes place in the virtual space of a blog on the internet. It is an operation whose overall control does not rest with any single agent. The artist and theorists participating in the collaborative construction of the text are -so far: Hakan Topal, Susane Bosch, Hypatia Vourloumis, Sibylle Hofter, Panos Kompatsiaris, Hariklia Haris, Efrosini Protopapa, Berkay Tuncay, Tatjana Fell, Ilgin Seymen, Julie Miller, Alice Burns, Christine Woditschka, Marta Ferretti, Michalangelo Corsaro.
DESCRIPTION OF THE INSTALLATION IN THE EXHIBITION SPACE in Amfissa.
_a pile of about 5,000 sheets on which are printed the texts with the beginnings of possible scenarios of collectivity.
_five black metalic electric fans on stands, placed around the pile of the 5,000 sheets.
The air current swirls the pages-the texts.
The pages are scattered.
The viewers are invited to pick up the pages off the floor or grab them out of the air, read them and place them on the pile with the blank pages. Any viewer who wishes to, could intervene in the text.
Sound will work as a promise. http://from-scratch-a-collective-text.tumblr.com

.The Watched Field. Controlled Area - Berlin 23-30.7.2012
In 1945 the Argentinian writer Adolfo Bioy Casares published his Plan de evasión; a novel in which he presents the efforts of a group of scientists to create a place of confinement where the prisoners would not feel that they were imprisoned. On an island, a complex system of experiments is meant to control the impressions of the prisoners in order that they construct, each one for his own, a pre-determined fake vision, a systematic illusion in which everyone is enclosed: an impression of fake freedom. The KAM workshops 2012 of Berlin would elaborate on the subject of communities that already vulgarized and shared the “panopticon cultures” as the continuous conditions of social normality. Systems of freedom in this frame are examined as analogous to the Plan de evasión: Adolfo Bioy Casares’s system of detention in illusion forms one of the main thematic areas that the police workshop approached in Berlin. The first thematic area of 2012 KAM workshops is linked in an analogous way to the constitution of a mapped world as a first system of detention. On this map the physical part of the person is configured as always already included.
The participants design or describe with technical accuracy a system of auto surveillance through a series of drawings that will form the task of this first narrative workshop. How can we imagine today within the era of technology a police functioning without walls? How can we think again about punishment without isolation? The participants prescribe the strategy of a system. Presentations includes information about control rooms for a city’s surveilling methods. The program of the first workshop also includes theoretical investigations about the formation of a self recorded community. What a prison would offer to a society that already organizes for itself an intense system of watching for all the extend of its ground?
The preparation of a “book on demand” is a central target of the workshop. The volume will be prepared during the days that the workshop runs. Some visits in the city were also be connected to the workshop’s thematic field. Recordings of different types are added to the book. Some discussions via Internet were also programmed. The Workshop takes place with the partnership of the Graduate School of UdK in Einsteinuferstrasse 43, Berlin, room 203, second floor.

BOOKS UNFOLDED VOL. 1-3 is a series of collaborative installations based on Vassiliea
Stylianidou´s artist’s book “The Plotless Room_I Lie to History” that has been published
in 2011 by Revolver Publishing, Berlin, in collaboration with Futura, Athens. “The Plotless
Room_I Lie to History” deals with the limitations of language, family and architecture as
well as the relationship between text and viewer/reader, text and space. Starting out from
the installation BOOKS UNFOLDED VOL. 1-3 intents to continue the circulation of concepts
that surround the artist’s book.
Concept and realisation: STUDIOvisits, Berlin.

.HOLIDAYS IN GREECE_a performative installation conceived and realised by
With the supprt of LoandBehold.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE is a performative installation that will take place in May 2012 in Berlin.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE is conceived and realised by STUDIOvisits, Berlin, a project of encounters taken in random intervals between artists, theorists, architects and the public. STUDIOvisits is initiated by Vassiliea Stylianidou.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE is realised with the support of Lo and Behold, an artist-run non-profit organisation based in Athens whose aim is to produce and promote cultural activities, both in Greece and abroad.
How complex is the current debt crisis?
What kind of paradigm shift is taking place in Greece right now?
How does the rest of the world perceive Greece today?
What kind of action may one take ?
Sooner or later?
Starting out from those questions
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE opens up a performative mise-en-scène.
The frame of HOLIDAYS IN GREECE is two-folded:
_ an installation will be set up with works that create multiple narrations; a network of associations and interconnections,
_within the installation, artists, theorists, poets and the general public are invited to send and/or perform a statement: an extended notion of a performative text that is related to greek/european debt crisis.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE will not purport to either find the causes of the debt crisis or to point the finger at the bad guys and the good guys.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE´s starting point is the wish to understand what we cannot so far understand.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE’s intention is to translate the current crisis situation into a different experience of understanding, share and knowledge.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE builds up a stage for multiple voices to be heard, so that impossible liaisons, associations and alliances may be discovered or created, within the condition of the current debt crisis.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE explores the meaning of a possible symbolic „profit“ of the „debt“.
HOLIDAYS IN GREECE will be an one day performance-installation.
A documentation of the project will be on view for one week.
A blog will document the whole process of the performative installation.

The exhibition Forays. Systems of Self-Interest – Mechanisms of Looting deals with different methods of exploitation and its different modes of operation. Nine artists explore different systems of exploitation and its consequences. Within the dramatic occurrences of the last years, there was one obvious motif, forming the basis of the financial crisis as well as the basis of the riots in the countries of the Arabic-Spring: Exploitation and systems of self-interest are mechanisms of looting, which occurs as neoliberalism disguised as democracy or naked as dictatorial regime. The possibilities of exploitation are unlimited. Loss of reality characterizes the stakeholders of both systems. The loot-mechanisms of the financial systems are inscrutable in their abstract complexity and virtuality. In totalitarian governed countries like Egypt and Tunisia exploitation and suppression appeared as the everyday life struggle of survival of the population. Based on current occurrences, the exhibition investigates historical, colonial and ideological reference-systems of exploitation. Which illusions are pulled out of the hat, where do the different forms of exploitation coincide and how do they correlate? Who gets rich at the expense of whom?
