Deserted Island with 15.000 Inhabitants

on Saturday, February 29, at 4 and 8 pm

Desert Island with 15,000 Inhabitants is a visual-movement performance connected with listening to music and reading from maps and fictional chronicles of Desert Island. It will take place at the Fotograf Gallery twice on the performance day, from 4pm and 8pm. The work’s authors organize a meeting on a Deserted Island. The island is part of the mainland; smaller than a continent and large than a rock, it rises from the water. Desert(ed) can mean: uninhabited, monotonous, gloomy, dreary, boring. Together with the audience, we would like imagine that we are living on this Island – an independent, isolated ecosystem guided by its own particular rules.

— Museum on Call — Contemporary Art in Georgia

on Wednesday, February 26, at 7 pm (FAMU, Smetanovo nábřeží 2, Prague 1)

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tbilisi is a museum on move, a museum “on call” that tells various stories with photographic and video documentation of the previously selected works of Georgian artists. The museum is an attempt to re-think and re-evaluates important works of Georgian contemporary art and topics from new history. The Museum of Contemporary Art – Tbilisi investigates a contemporary art in Georgia in a socio-political and historical context that in its turn reflects the country’s latest history.

— Event Horizon I.

The term event horizon, which refers to a point beyond which light cannot escape the attraction of the black hole, can equally well indicate a place beyond which the imagination of the future ends. It is known that the mechanism of presentation is anchored in the past, based on memories that predetermine what we can imagine or in the language of science – it is an interpolation of numerous statistical measurements. But the question is what is at the core of the speculation from which the imaginative image is constructed?

Lecture    

Stephanie Kiwitt
— Moving about a place. Taking pictures. Placing them next to.

on Tuesday, January 28, at 7 pm.

Stumbling across something.
With the eyes? With the mind? Through a motion?

To see someone or something.
To gaze at someone looking or touching.
Holding on.

Hands in pockets, a visual frisking or probing.
Intensive stare. 
Bending.
Bowing. Bending the other. 

Casting one’s glance at something.
From here across the room, underneath, on top of.

Until one is full with it.
Digesting, excreting.
