 “Súbete el Cierre -arte y acción-“ - Masculinities -commands and diversities-

This project is an initiative of The Master's degreeon Managment and Cultural Development at Universidad de Guadalajara (Mexico) with the participation of the magazine Memorias de Nómada (Mérida,Yuc.) and the virtual gallery Historias a través de tus ojos of the magazine Fotografía en Movimiento (Cdmx),

Masculinities: Commands and diversities

The objective is to recognize and foster the work and art pieces, that through the glass invite to reflect around the creation of masculinities, the truths, and myths.

To believe in the power of the images to state an inquiry to the toxic masculinity, its places of domain and violence to others, female and male, thus, we look for the images that can show its understandings, its alternatives, its dynamics, and its possible transformations.

The exhibition will have two categories:

Virtual method: All the pieces will appear on the social media of the project “Súbete el Cierre -arte y acción-“,

on the virtual magazine Memorias de Nómada and on the virtual gallery "Historia a través de tus ojos" of the

magazine Fotografía en Movimiento. The virtual opening is on the 21st of November via ZOOM platform at 17.00 h Mexico City time (only in Spanish)

On-site method: The art work will be part of an exhibition to be presented in Spring 2021 in Guadalajara and Mexico City

Even the theme was launched before the pandemic, the challenge was the words to be broken up and readjusted, for to be come a source of inspiration. Reflections on the world, among the that frees us and condemns us, is a kind of motto foreboding of what our lives go through. And we say not only of our lives in the collective, but also from the perspective of personal struggle within the world that is presented. In this exhibition, in addition it celebrates the return of some artists present throughout the other editions of the festival and in others contexts.

“Ablösen” was conducted in collaboration with Tanja Wilking (Rodinmuse), Munich and is a revised version of my live and video performance "peel off"

The work deals with a couple and one onion. A metaphor about relationships, communication and internal strife

“Isoliert” (isolate) is a solo performance and deals with the subjects of distance, isolation, body. In the context of our environments that we create or in which we live.

Aktionsraum 2 (action space2), Ebersberger Kunstverein

 Ebersberger Kunstverein 
 25th of September (opening) - 4th of October 2020
Galerie “Alte Brennerei” im Klosterbauhof 6,  85560 Ebersberg (near Munich) Bavaria, Germany
At the opening evening on 25th September there will be video programm in which three video work of mine will be screened “ Whither goest thou “, “koud slova” and “conecta – no conecta”
On the 2nd and 3rd of October 2020 I will conduct two live performances “peel off (Ablösen) in collaboration with Tanja Wilking (Munich) and the solo performance Isolate (Isolation)
In 1969, Eva Madelung (patron), Peter Nemetschek (artist / photographer) and Alfred Gulden (writer / filmmaker) established the legendary Aktionsraum 1 (action space 1) as an avant-garde collective in Munich, in which conventional work and presentation forms in the art industry should be avoided. The aim was to enable the new performative, institutional and societal-critical efforts in arts to make a public appearance. This action space 1 also functioned as an experimental field, in which the audience was included and art was conveyed in the form of lectures and discussions.
In memory of that ground breaking campaign, curator Peter Kees invented  Aktionsraum 2 (action space 2)
Whether digitization, a changing world of work, rapidly growing capitalism or increasing social problems, the economic, social and societal consequences of the pandemic also have to be negotiated and much more.
There is space for action, discourse, art, lecture, discussion, performance, film. That is why action space 2 sees itself as a field of experimentation in which current topics can be negotiated artistically or not artistically.

More from Kodekü (Collision of the the Arts)

Kodekü - (Kollision der Künste) - Collision of the Arts, Bischofswerda, Germany , 03.09.-13.09.20

I was taking part in this 10-day art project in which artists from various disciplines and international origins come together, live and work in

There is currently a lot of discussion about how it is possible to revitalize rural regions. An important point here is the question of how the creative scene can be drawn into the small town and networked with one another. In order to counteract the politically precarious situation in the east of Saxony, Germany the cultural revitalization of small cities is an essential concern. This is exactly where our project starts. Between 03.09.2020 and 13.09.2020 I created two side specific installations . >Dialogue< which is a in room installation at the KAS, Altes Kino and >Tor< a Land Art installations in the Schillerpark.

Furthermore I gave a variation of performance isolate on 06.09.20 and a performance workshop on 10.09.20 at KAS for school children. Finally followed by the connected-not connected" performance at Schillerpark. This performance was in collaboration with Ulrich Thiem who escorted the performance with his cello. The Land Art installation >Tor< was integrated in the performance
