Introduction: Dr. Ina Annette Hünnekens, The vernissage will take place outdoors.
The exhibition project:
GEDOK shows itself in a state of cultural emergency, which means above all: keep your distance. The gallery space remains closed and is, as it were, turned inside out. A camouflage screen with peepholes, so-called “viewing chambers,” prevents the viewer from entering the gallery and only allows glimpses of interior projections and art videos that arouse curiosity about the artistic potential. The role of the usual viewer is changed: instead of an exhibition audience, we are now dealing with an audience of flaneurs and voyeurs. Thus we refer not only to the changed role of the viewer and the exhibition, but also to the object of the exhibition.
Chambers of vision
In four viewing chambers, the arts – with image, video and text materials from GEDOK Karlsruhe art projects – are presented in their four dimensions using digital means.
Two further chambers of vision reflect aspects and conditions for art and its reception using analog means of observation:
One chamber focuses on the dialectical multidimensionality of the arts – with image, video, and text materials from GEDOK Karlsruhe’s art project “Six New Ones” – while the other chamber focuses on the transcendental conditions for art using analog techniques of observation.
