Muzeum Susch / Art Stations Foundation CH aims to contribute to the recognition and visibility of concepts, movements and ideas and in particular, though not exclusively, offering new readings and positions to female artists. Founded and chaired by Grażyna Kulczyk, Polish entrepreneur and long-term supporter of contemporary art, we are engaging in experimental approaches to cultural education, exhibitions and research, led by a clear vision dedicated to the re-definition of the canonical and the marginalized - not as a dominating force, silencing others but as an influential voice for making other voices heard. We need a chorus!
Up To And Including Limits
The first episode in the new series 'Stillness & Motion' features two conversations with artists participating in the exhibition ‘Up to and Including Limits: After Carolee Schneemann’ curated at Muzeum Susch by Sabine Breitwieser. Sabine Breitwieser speaks with Aura Rosenberg in New York and Katrina Daschner in Vienna.
Aura Rosenberg presented several works in the exhibition, notablyThe Dialectical Porn Rock (1990-1993) series, consisting of dozens of rocks wrapped in pages from porn magazines, as well as The Astrological Ways (2012), a series of 12 large-scale body prints representing 12 zodiac signs accompanied by The Afronomical Ways (2012), a video projection with sound by the Dirty Mirrors, a band in which Rosenberg performs on keyboard.
Katrina Daschner’s works in the exhibition in Susch include a selection of photographic collages from the series Zuhälter (Pimp, 1999-2002), 7 photographic prints from her series Vincent (2002) as well as a film Pferdebusen (Horse boobs, 2017), screened in a prepared space that includes a curtain running across the walls created by the artist.
An Index of Voices
Quinn Latimer is commenting on and listening to Mayra Rodríguez Castro, Anna/Anca Daučíková, Iris Touliatou and Neha Choksi. They are speaking from their specific locations, that is, rooms, from Los Angeles and Prague, Bogota and Athens, about how the terms 'stillness and movement' are currently affecting their thinking.
Performing Mourning. Laments in Contemporary Art
For episode 3 of ‘Stillness & Motion’, dramaturg and writer Guy Cools is sharing his thoughts on traditions that can help us to embody and experience the feelings of loss and grief.
Stillness is a Sound
French artist Mathilde Rosier is speaking about her experiences of stillness, questioning our obedience to time, and, finally, sharing her notion of stillness as a form of resilience, resistance, if not, rebellion.
There is no stillness
For this episode we have invited Jennifer Higgie, editor at large of frieze magazine and the writer and thinker behind Bow Down an Instagram account and a podcast dedicated to significant women artists. Jennifer is in conversation with Liliane Lijn, an American-born artist based in London, who has been working with kinetic texts as early as since 1962. For decades Liliane has been involving poetry and light - set into motions in objects in space. Her installations induce a physical sense of time, the elapsing of time becomes a gesture, a haptic notion at our hands.
Agency of Silence
In the 6th episode of the series, two choreographers for whom the voice is a crucial medium - Katarzyna Sitarz and Jule Flierl - contemplate silence, its physicality and its political agency. Dialoguing on and deeply listening to the current troubled times, they are examining silence as a physical practice, meticulously weaving polyphonic sensorial compositions of voices and thoughts of generations of artists, thinkers and activists. Questioning silence’s presence and absence, its non-obvious qualities as well as the political dimension of speaking up or abstaining from speech in the reality we live in, they unfold a multilayered spectrum of what silence can be or serve for.
