INTERFERENCE - SOLO EXHIBITIONS BY CARLOS KATASTROFSKY
http://cont3xt.net/blog/?p=875

----- ----- -----

The focal point of the solo exhibition INTERFERENCE by the
Vienna-based Media Artist carlos katastrofsky is not the disturbance
the concept of 'interferences' is normally bound to, but that space of
transition, where these interferences appear and which they constitute
themselves at the same time. Interferences not only describe defects,
they also designate a global phenomenon: these are the natural
processes of transformation, which language systems are subjected to
in the course of time. INTERFERENCE is a multipart exhibition shown
from December 2008 to March 2009 in Copenhagen, Aarhus (Denmark) and
online.

Opening: 05 December 2008
Duration: 06 December 2008 - 09 March 2009
Venue Copenhagen: mikrogalleriet, http://www.mikrogalleriet.net
Venue Aarhus: Spanien 19C, http://www.spanien19c.dk
Online venue: netfilmmakers, http://netfilmmakers.dk

DISCUSSION FORUM - CURATING, COMMUNICATION + OPEN SOURCE
http://cont3xt.net/interference/discuss

----- ----- -----

The preparations for the exhibition INTERFERENCE were accompanied by a
temporarily run discussion forum, set up by the curators before the
opening of the exhibition. This can be seen as an attempt to make the
structuring of the project open source. The discussions where about
the shifting borders between the work of an Internet Artist and the
one done by a curator who wants to show the work in a physical
exhibition. The conversations where about the focus on cultural
contexts more than on the technical parts of the work, the mixing of
art forms in regard of (un)stable media, and finally the dropping of
the notions of avant-garde and the shiny late-nineties "we are on the
edge of it all"-attitude. The forum is now readable as an archive.
