Dont Call it Space: Das Weiss Haus Publication


‘do not call it off-space!’

 

Program announcement 10 year celebration, jubilee exhibition and book presentation 'do not call it off-space!’

It was lodged in a butcher’s shop, a business floor, the public office of a tax office, and is currently at home in a school. Across the city the white house has shown exhibitions in six stations. With “studio das weisse haus” an artist in residence program as well as studios for local artists reared and as one of the first institutions of Vienna the exchange of curators and cultural journalists into the program took. It has the Erste Bank More established VALUE art prize in collaboration with the ACF New York and the First Group and cooperation with national and international universities and cultural institutions.

In ten years of work for art, a lot of floors were scrubbed in the “white houses”, roofs polished, walls were torn, entire facades were dismantled artistically and positions of about 550 national and international artists were shown. The white house and the team around Alexandra Grausam has seen a lot, opened a lot, got to know the limits and developed into one of the most dynamic locations in the city - a platform for mostly young artists who have not yet got a gallery behind them ,

And now? The Decade Review is openly declared as a constructive future prospect and invites you to public brainstorming: “What do I want from the white house?” Is the question. Anyone who has something to say about this, should look ahead to the pre-celebration and the further thinking!

Trashxploitation Festival



Trashxploitation festival was initiated in June 2017 in Paris as self-organized independent platform for networking and presenting worldwide production of self-made, low-fi/no-fi film and video art that is emanciapted from imperatives of big productions, market requirements and sometimes even academic knowledge. After successful premiere in Paris, Trasxhplo monster spilled itself abroad and in October 2017 we had successful Romanian edition in the city of Cluj-Napoca. As we are constantly in search for new contributors and collaborators, feel free to get in touch with us if your work or inspiration relates to any of the following keywords:

Homemade, irony, absurd, low fi/no fi, free expression, kitsch aesthetic, science fiction, mocumentary, experimental, music videos, art videos, amateur, diletant, guerilla film, short documentary, art porn, body, sincere stupidness vs. fake smartness, antifilm, animated art flm, dance, music video, gore, WTF, future, horror.




From 25th to 29th October we will be represented at TRANSEUROPA FESTIVAL in Madrid, Spain. On this occasion, Trashxploitation will have one room with a selection of films in a loop – having on mind the activistic nature of Transeuropa festival, we selected a number of films that loosely relate to the questions of social justice, tolerance, activism, etc..check the playlist on the cover photo of this event!




This time, Trashxplo selection is accompanying our exhibition The Voice OF_______, which is a collection of fictional election materials designed by the artists who have no right to vote in their country of residence, and on top of that we will display a humble collection of Elektrika zines :) more info at the following links:

A Collection of electoral materials designed by the artists who have no right to vote. Exhibition curated by Vladimir Palibrk, in collaboration with European Alternatives

Today, a significant number of artists are living and moving all over Europe. Multiple travel, education and working opportunities have allowed for relatively networked artist communities to grow, sometimes without interactions with local political realities or spaces. However, these artists still have limited or no set of rights to participation and collective decision-making locally, which can impact identities, sense of belonging and perceptions of/by local cultural contexts. The minds and sensibilities of artists are regularly exposed to transnational, national and local political messages, especially at the occasion of electoral elections, to which they often cannot participate, no matter that they actively participate in the economies and cultural life of the countries they live in.

The exhibition wants to explore how artists, who have no voting rights in their country of residence, would react if they imagine themselves being in charge of formulating and designing election campaigns. How would they use their democratic right of free aesthetic expression, in an hostile context regarding their rights? How would they react, which message would they send when invited to comment on these circumstances through an aesthetic form? This exhibition draws the public attention to the paradoxes that are surrounding this issue.



The exhibition is accompanied with a selection of movies from the project Trashxploitation Festival, a grassroots video initiative dedicated to collecting and promoting up to 3 minutes long films that are homemade, self-produced, free expression narratives. The festival was initiated in Paris in June 2017, gathered so far seven hours of movies from all over the world and networked around 150 authors. A special selection was made for Transeuropa, of those that are dealing with social issues, made by homeless people, LGBT activists, women’s rights activists, etc.

Vladimir Palibrk is writer and curator working mostly in fields of graphic art, street art and film. After graduation at the Comparative studies of world literature Department at the Philological Faculty of Belgrade, he got engaged for some years in various turbulent projects on the self-organised art scene in the wider region of the Balkans and beyond. Recently, he initiated an independent short film platform “Trashxploitation Festival”, that is dedicated to homemade, self-produced and low-fi film production. Palibrk is currently living and working in Paris.




TRANSEUROPA is a transnational artistic, cultural and political festival organised by European Alternatives since 2007. In the past decade, TRANSEUROPA has attracted thousands of attendees and active participants through a decentralised event structure in over a dozen European cities and a high profile moment in one city. For the 2017 edition, Convergent Spaces, the main city for TRANSEUROPA is Madrid

London Group Open 2017


Part One: 8 - 17 November 2017

Part Two: 22 November - 1 December 2017

The Cello Factory 33-34 Cornwall Road, London SE1 8TJ



“We are very excited to have had a send-in that is truly international with artists from 27 countries. The Selection Committee had a very rewarding time viewing all the works and they are proud that the resulting exhibition will present an enticing breadth of work, including a good number of videos, in all, promising to be thoroughly lively and challenging.” Susan Haire, President

In recognition of today’s increasingly diversified art scene, the exhibition will feature works in a large range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, digital, mixed media, installation, video and an audio artwork. From a wide range of submissions, The London Group Selection Committee – which consists of existing members – carefully selected 79 artists to each exhibit a work across two exhibitions at The Cello Factory, London from 8 – 17 November 2017 and 22 November – 1 December 2017.

Video works by the following artists will be shown in both exhibitions: Sandra Crisp Annie Cunningham Samantha Heydt Emma Liebeskind Gloria Merritt Dominic Negus Micheál O'Connell aka MOCKSIM Nikita Russi Katy Shepherd



“A vital strand of artistic diversity and free-thinking in an art-world increasingly dominated by market forces and curatorial conformity.”  Galleries Magazine

The London Group was formed in 1913 by thirty-two artists from The Camden Town Group and English Vorticists, including Jacob Epstein, Wyndham Lewis, and Walter Sickert, with the aim of creating an independent artist-led exhibiting body to counterbalance the power of institutions such as the Royal Academy. Since its foundation, the organisation has been an integral force in the growing and supporting of diverse and emerging artistic talent across Britain. The group’s mentoring and exhibiting programme has gone on to support the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists. Frank Auerbach, Frank Bowling, Mary Fedden, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, L.S. Lowry, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland are among those who have benefitted from membership to The London Group throughout their careers. http://ift.tt/10vsQoI



The London Group Today

The London Group is a thriving democratic artists’ collective practicing in all disciplines, from painting and sculpture to moving image, digital and performance, with a full annual events programme in London and beyond.

The Group’s written constitution requires it “to advance public awareness of contemporary visual art by holding exhibitions annually.” Operating in the interstices between existing art institutions, the Group’s focus today is on self-generated exhibitions. Curated and managed by its artist members, these events aim to offer a serious and alternative perspective to contemporary visual arts in Britain.

“What The London Group seeks to show is that art’s inner strength (and thus its outer weakness) lies in the co-operative multiplication of differences.”     Mike Phillipson, The London Group

The London Group holds a prestigious biennial Open Exhibition where artists, at all stages of their careers, are invited to submit work to exhibit alongside members’, with at least half the exhibitors being non-members.




Membership

Membership currently stands at just under ninety and criteria for membership are the quality of a maker’s emerging vision and commitment to the Group’s activities. As a co-operative the Group finds its strength in its encouragement of diversity. Indeed the Group’s very identity and long-term viability is vested in its embrace of the differences of vision displayed in its members’ work.

Existing members are eligible to nominate new members for election based on submission of their current work. The membership selection committee sits once a year.

The London Group currently holds many of its events at The Cello Factory, Waterloo, London.
