Liquid Horizons at tranzit.sk

 

The exhibition entitled Liquid Horizons brings together works of six contemporary artists as well as archival material whose common denominator is the construction of large-scale dams over the last five decades. Throughout the twentieth century, dams functioned as facilitators of modernisation in terms of the electric energy they generated for newly developing industries as well as households with their modern appliances, and guarantors of a safe and stable supply of drinking water in the case of reservoirs. However, the exhibition focuses on the darker side of this modernisation, namely the price that had to be paid in terms of the displacement of various communities, the destruction of cultural heritage and damage to the natural environment.

Participating artists: Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan, Ali Cherri, Elle Márjá Eira & Mai-Lis Eira, Lucia Nimcová, documents on the Gabcíkovo–Nagymaros Waterworks from the archive of Mikuláš Huba, and The Archives of the Protest Movement against the Damming of the Alta-Kautokeino Water System (Alta Museum, Norway)

Rado Ištok is a Slovak curator, researcher and editor based in Stockholm. He is a curator of residencies and an exhibition at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (2018-2020) in the framework of 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, and a leader of Spaces of Care, Disobedience and Desire (2018-2020), a research project in collaboration with Marie-Louise Richards and Natália Rebelo supported by the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm.

currently unavailable at the Július Koller Society

 

The Július Koller Society is opening its new space dedicated to contemporary art, critical culture and research in Bratislava at the self-organized culture centre called Nová Cvernovka. The first exhibition by the Austrian artist Johannes Porsch titled currently unavailable focuses on the topic of socializing archives. Johannes Porsch inspects the complex relations between archive and society from the perspective of the current conditions of semiocapitalism. In his works which refer to methods of Post-Minimalist and Post-Conceptual Art, more specifically Institutional Critique and performative concepts of subjectivity, he investigates specific features of the visual industry and symbolic economies.

The Július Koller Society is a non-profit association established 2008 in Bratislava. The purpose and objectives of the association is to promote the works, artistic and cultural achievements of Július Koller as well as to enhance exchanges in contemporary arts and strengthen local and international cultural dialogue. Nová Cvernovka houses independent cultural initiatives, artist's, architect's and designer's studios as well as publishers and film associations.

Curated by Daniel Grún

Opening: Wednesday, 10 April 2019, 7 pm
Venue: The Július Koller Society, Nová Cvernovka, Racianska 1575/78, Bratislava
