Seismographics and other shakes and tremors


An installation by an.thon
28. May - 17. June 2020

On March 22, 2020, several international rock plates shifted. In Zagreb, an earthquake shook the city. That much is certain.
 Elsewhere in Graz, E. felt these tremors without being able to assign them – she lives on the fourth floor of a residential building in the east of the city.

1. January 2011 - ongoing

Collective beauty expresses itself in every nook and corner. Productions from the collective unconscious appear in manifold rituals of order and marking. Phrasings – embedded in functional, trivial context – and proceedings of layering, accumulation and condensation turn out to be pure poetry.

At Schengen’s Edge

23. May 2019, 19:00

Interferences – Episode 22


A Notebook | Beležnica
7. - 10. November 2019, 19:00

Personal recordings of what is important, of everything that must not be forgotten, on that day or over a longer period of time. As a mnemonic, a storage or an evidence to be able to give proof or to assure oneself. While the occurrance is ending, the memory fading, the narration being dismissed as fictional, everything committed to paper in the notebook serves as verification. The perceived moment in fragments outlined, to not leave it to oblivion. The notebook as the situatedness of particular moments in changing hierarchical priorities as a list of references of today’s being.

Interferences – Episode 21

15. June 2019, 14:00 - 18:00

The family has been living at the house in Loibltal/Brodi 1 for four years when Paul is born as Neža and Miha’s sixth child into a century that has just begun.
 For more than seven decades, the house on the road has remained his home where each of his paths through life has started. It is also the home he returns to, the place he shapes with his doings and fills with his life: through a time of disruption and uncertain realignments on all levels, up until today.

DECLARATION OF THE MANY 
IN THE REPUBLIC OF AUSTRIA


WE ARE MANY
1. January 2019 - ongoing

Our society is a plural gathering where many interests clash. Our co-operation in a democracy is subject to constant re-negotiation: This is about everybody, since every single one of us is a being of many possibilities.
We believe that art, culture and the institutions promoting the same are open spaces-spaces that allow us to experience diversity and ambiguity.
There has been a time when art was defamed as degenerate in Austria. Art and culture were put to ill uses of inhumane propaganda. People were debased, robbed of their means of existence, persecuted, exiled, murdered. As creators of art and culture in Austria we are well aware of the responsibility that arises from history. In the Republic of Austria, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms enjoys constitutional status. Whoever attempts to abrogate the European Human Rights Convention and the rule of law is compromising the cornerstones of our democratic commonwealth.

Living Environments in Permeable Space
5. - 26. September 2019, 18:00

Our place at Annenstrasse 52 is opened up into the backyard by a staircase. A bridge, creating permeability. From urban space into “idyllic backyard ambiance" with AC sound and dumpster ensembles. Here and there, roses, shrubs, too. Every opening extends the range of perception and of possibilities, also entails uncertainty. That’s normal and harbours the chance to engage – on an artistic as well as a social level.

An "information sculpture" on the current situation in Nicaragua and satelite-projects in Costa Rica und Honduras
1. January 2018 - ongoing

The current situation in Nicaragua and the modus operandi the autocratic acting president Daniel Ortega and his clans display in dealing with the opposition, with students, journalists and activists calls for first-hand information for one thing and, for another, for the necessity to "pin" this information in the form of an "information sculpture", keep it evident and further feed it.

An artistic research into the Nazi’s getaway route to Argentina
18. - 25. July 2019, 19:00

An artistic research into the Nazi’s getaway route to Argentina leads to rambling, proliferating, spacing out.
 Diagrams, pictures, metaphors, all knotting together within the protagonist of the research.
 Narrations, fringing at the margins and resisting concluding representations.
 Junctions and conjunctions everywhere, disturbing the orientation yet allowing to move forward.
 What remains are fragments, their excess amassments and intricate alignments.

Mirko Maric

Retroperspective
2. - 18. May 2019, 19:00

What is the art what are the humans? The exhibition shows a fragmentary retrospective and present works. Mirko Maric strolls through different worlds: real and virtual, analogue and digital, as well as banal. His works arise from the contact points and intersections of personhood and the world of art—nature, life, death. A disturbing „intoxication with questions“, „silent talks“ made visible in the public as well as the intimate space. Consequently, everything ends in an invisible fluxus edition. Subject to changes.
