57TH BIENNALE DI VENEZIA -“МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE” Guerilla Performance

On the occasion of the:

 57TH INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION


LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA 2017

 

VIVA ARTE VIVA

 

IMG_4222-768x506

MOTA – MUSEUM ON TOUR AUSTRIA, developed as a hybrid between museum and artwork, presents “МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE” in cooperation with the art label XXXXismTOSHAIN/ MAKOWSKY/ CEEH (Sofia – Vienna – St. Petersburg).

The collective has set themselves the goal of sending out a message of peace to the world and has invited a number of international artists to create a slogan – among them Lawrence Weiner, Olaf Nicolai, Parastou Forouhar and Kendell Geers.

The messages are written on protective vests coated with a special black military-infrared colour. They are worn by soldiers standing in line like a guard of honor and can only be seen with a night-vision device. Using the night-vision telescope, one becomes part of the installation and the hidden artist statements can clearly be read in white writing on the black protective vests.

One woman and nine men take part in the Performance. They come from Germany, Austria, Switzerland as well as refugees from Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan. All performers live in Austria.

This performative artwork, made of people, was to be seen in public spaces in the city of Vienna in 2016 (Stephansdom, Karlsplatz, Main Railway Station, MuseumsQuartier) and confronts it’s audience – passers-by, tourists and art-fans, unexpectedly in the middle of the city. A new, non-material art space is formed. The messages of peace leave the rigid form of an exhibition area and take up positions right at the cutting edge – they pulse on the human bodies of the performers – the body as a blackboard, projection screen and placard, all at once.

“МИР МИРУ FRIEDE“ – PERFORMANCE INFRONT OF THE ITALIAN PAVILION (12.5.2017)

 

SHORT STATEMENT

MOTA – Museum On Tour Austria and XXXXi̶s̶m̶TMC are taking the best-known art exhibition in the world – La Biennale di Venezia – „VIVA ARTE VIVA“ as an opportunity for the anti-war performance “МИР МИРУ FRIEDE“, an artistic message of peace to the world!

Since 2012 we have been acting internationally by means of guerilla performances liberated from the conventional practices of art and exhibitions.

When avant-garde is integrated into the official program of conventional galleries and museums, it is transformed into a spectacle.

For this reason our performance on 10-12 May 2017 is deliberately unorthodox, both in the grounds of the Biennale and also in the city itself, for all of us.

КОРОТКОЕ ЗАЯВЛЕНИЕ

Museum On Tour Austria (MOTA) и XXXXi̶s̶m̶TMC используют самую известную арт-выставку в мире — Венецианскую биеннале, (тема которой будет VIVA ARTE VIVA — “Да здравствует живое искусство!”) как повод проведения своего антивоенного перформанса “МИР МИРУ FRIEDE“.

С 2012 арт-лейбл XXXXi̶s̶m̶TMC осознанно агирует по миру в формате партизанских акций — по ту сторону обыденных арт- и выставочных форматов.

Авандгард, взятый в официальные программы музеев, становится театральным представлением, теряeт свой смысл и силу действия. С 10 по 12 мая перформанс “МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE” будет проходить как и на территории Биеннале, так и в центре города для всех!

KURZSTATEMENT

MOTA – Museum On Tour Austria und XXXXi̶s̶m̶TMC nehmen die bekannteste Kunstausstellung der Welt – La Biennale di Venezia – „VIVA ARTE VIVA“ zum Anlass für die anti-war Performance “МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE“, eine künstlerische Friedensbotschaft an die Welt!

Seit 2012 agieren wir international mittels Guerilla – Aktionen losgelöst von gängiger Kunst-  und Ausstellungspraxis.

Avantgarde, im offiziellen Programm herkömmlicher Galerien und Museen aufgenommen verwandelt sich in ein Spektakel.

In diesem Sinne performen wir von 10.-12. Mai 2017 bewusst unorthodox, sowohl auf dem Areal der Biennale, als auch mitten in der Stadt, für uns Alle.

FUCKi̶s̶m̶ Toshain/ Ceeh

Curator Oxana Polyakova

The project “Transparent Borders” includes the works by eight artists from different countries with different cultural and social background, united by one important feature – the ability to make the borders that we usually deliberately overlook visible and tangible. Seemingly invisible due to the modern technologies, the increasing speed of communication, social networks and the constant flow of images, these barriers and constraints have a significant influence over the daily life of a society, an individual and his interaction with the surrounding physical reality.

(…) The radical representation of this conflict is enhanced in the “FUCKi̶s̶m̶” manifesto by Anna Ceeh and Iv Toshain – a sincere call to reject all the different brands, tags, and autonyms and to initiate independent artistic activities outside the existing institutional rules and procedures.

Despite the apparent differences in individual artistic practices, the participants of this project are united by the desire to study the limits of the chosen formats and media. To make up for the constraints of the format of an exhibition itself, which no longer corresponds to a specific spatial experience, a temporary website will be launched to make the exhibition available to a wider audience.
