[Nettime-ro] INVITATION TO "ARE YOU CRAZY?"


Title: INVITATION TO "ARE YOU CRAZY?"



INVITATION TO THE ARTIST TALK
ARE YOU CRAZY?

 

WITH MICHAEL SAILSTORFER

AT BÜROFRIEDRICH

THURSDAY, JUNE 5th 2003 

7:00 P.M.

 

ARE YOU CRAZY? is the title of a series of artist talks which raise the issue of "irrationality" and open this important element in the works of young artists for discussion. Everyday situations are normally judged according to logical criteria. In contrast, artistic actions create the possibility of pushing the limits of the given social standards or even going beyond the established narrow confines of rational behaviour; for an artistic act does not require the legitimisation of a predetermined goal.
Is it the main purpose and intent of the artist to question the accustomed strategies of daily routine by incorporating breaks and disruptions into ordinary logical structures?
What role does the artist play within the framework of "rational" social constructs, when his or her actions cannot be measured by such criteria?
Is it the artist's purpose to play the fool - much like court jesters or children - by inverting and thus reflecting habitual patterns of behaviour?
These are just a few of the questions that will be discussed with the invited artists in conjunction with their individual artistic positions.

With his series of photographs "3 Ster mit Ausblick" Michael Seilstorfer documents the destruction of a wooden cabin, which was burned piece-by-piece in its own oven. In the last photograph only the oven remains - an isolated object in an empty landscape.
Michael Sailstorfer (born 1979) lives and works in Munich. His recent solo exhibitions include Galerie Markus Richter (Berlin), Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus (München) and Akademiegalerie(München).



ARE YOU CRAZY? will take place on various Thursdays in June and July at 7 p.m.

Next talk: June 26th Elena Kovylina
