Project presentation: … material or immaterial, traditional as well as altogether new …Labour in a Single Shot
Moderation: Barbara Green
 
Haroun Farocki, Filmmaker, Participant of the 55th Biennal di Venezia, documenta 12, Professor of the Akademie der Künste in Vienna
 
Antje Ehrmann, autor and video artist
Labour in a Single Shot is a project that we – Antje Ehrmann and Haroun Farocki – have been working on since 2011.
“We have initiated Workshops in 15 cities worldwide in which videos have been produced.
The subject matter is “Work”: paid or unpaid, material or immaterial, traditional as well as altogether new. In certain African countries a whole family lives on what they manage to cultivate on divided …
In many countries in the EU farmers get paid for letting their fields lie idle, which is controlled by satellite photos.  

It takes a lot of courage to explain the attitude towards work in the cities/regions where the workshops take place. In each city, every single day, work processes can be ob- served: from shoemakers, cooks, waiters, window cleaners, nurses, tattoo artists or garbage men.
But the lion’s share of work takes place behind closed doors, and some of it is the kind of work that is not only invisible, but actually inconceivable. In order to change the status quo, this sort of labour has to be traced, researched and brought out into the open.
Where can it be seen? What controls it? What kind of labour takes place in the centre and what kind at the periphery? What is characteristic or unusual for different cities? Which work process could pose a cinematographic challenge?

You are sincerely welcome

* The public discourse program is a key element of the ARTS CLUB BERLIN, committed to investigating recent developments, concepts and forms of practice in discourses of contemporary art. At the Invitation of the VBK curators, artists and scientists are asked to organize a discursive
program that is internationally oriented yet at the same time retains a focus on the local context of Berlin.
The program has a particular focus on different forms of artistic practices and their conditions of production. What is artistic practice today and what are its contexts? Taking this question as a point of departure, the public discourse program seeks to contextualise contemporary concepts of
artistic practice within political, social and economic settings in open lectures and discussions with international artists, curators and representatives of non-artistic fields.

HÖHERE DICHTE  I  update14
Ausstellungsdauer: 01 . Mai - 08. Juni 201 4

ERÖFFNUNG
Mittwoch, 31 . April 201 4 1 9 Uhr

Begrüßung:
Sabine Schneider und Jutta Barth
im Dialog

Das Thema HÖHERE DICHTE zeichnet sich durch seine Komplexität aus, das einen weiten Raum für individuelle Interpretationen zulässt und vielfältige Umsetzungen in allen künstlerischen Sparten und Positionen ermöglicht. Dichte in der Kunst bezeichnet die kompositorische Geschlossenheit, die malerische Qualität vermittelt sich über verdichtete Pigmente, Grafik steht im Spannungsverhältnis von Verdichtung und Offenheit von Struktur und Spur, in der Fotografie ist Dichte eine Eigenschaft des Filmmaterials, in der Optik eine Erscheinung des Lichts, das Phänomen der Dichte findet man in Ökologie, Industrie, Verkehr, Kommunikation und Netzwerken.....
