Cities: Ghent, Belgium
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 1986
The show placed art in 58 houses belonging to everyday townspeople, carrying the work outside the separate universe, the total institution, of the museum, to bring it within the private zone of the private home, an asocial place insofar as it is removed from the public arena. Not only –-as some sceptics might remark-– in the homes of extremely rich art collectors of people in the design trade nor in meeting-rooms of so-called ‘progressive’’ associations, nor in empty studios of obscure artists, but in all sorts of homes. The artists’ self-imposed task is to transform these spaces –-within the limits imposed by the owners or occupiers-– into something which can be dentified as ‘art’. (…)
minute/year by Kovács/O’Doherty
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 2016-2018
Minute/Year is an automated, multi-year durational work, in which sound is automatically layered in a resonant space, for one minute each day, and then published online, daily, as audio and accompanying spectrogram image. Every day, for one minute, Minute/Year adds a new layer. The daily process goes like this: the sound that is occurring in a single ordinary living room space, during a single minute, is recorded. But, simultaneously, the previous day’s recording – of the sound of the same space 24 hours before – is played back into the space. So, each recording includes its predecessor, which includes its predecessor in turn, and so on, in a potentially infinite regression. Each day’s minute-long recording is then converted into a spectrogram – an image of the frequencies of the audio — and the two parts are then published online. This entire process is automated – it happens without any human involvement, and runs daily at 20:18 (in 2018). The space in which the piece occurs alters each year (Currently it is in Ladenkino, Berlin. In 2016, it was a room in a private apartment; in 2017, it was in Lütticher 5, an shared artist project and living space in Berlin).

project unite by Curator: Yves Aupetitallot
Cities: Firminy, France
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 1993
Turn right at the drug rehabilitation centre, left at the unfinished church and go straight past the empty concrete sports stadium and you arrive at Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation in the small, post-industrial French town of Firminy. Symptomatic of most utopian housing projects, the North Wing of the apartment block was condemned and evacuated in 1983, since when it has remained unoccupied and shut off from the outside world. Earlier this year, as part of a campaign by the residents’ association to reopen the wing and gain official recognition of the importance of the site, Project Unité was organized to invite selected artists to exhibit in the dormant apartments of the North Wing.

In a Room by Artists: Beuteltier & Claudia Heinzler, Björn Kühn & Anna Romanenko, Nick McHarg, Signe Raunkjær Holm and Emily Wardill / Curators: Lukas Ludwig, Johanna Markert, Florian Model / Organisation: anorak
Cities: Karlsruhe, Germany
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 22.04.2017-13.05.2017
“The ceiling and the floor fell in love, but only the wall knew.”*
Is this the outcome of them being close? Does this even seem plausible to you?
Imagine a narrative as a straight line that goes astray. Imagine it becoming a haunted space, a cluster of possibilities that constantly re-institutes itself. Would you still be able to trace the edges?
If narratives are sense-making tools, what’s the relationship between plausibility and causality? How do you navigate through a story without closure … where events become loose ends dangling next to each other, waiting for the accidental touch.
“In a Room” is an exhibition that explores some of those questions and more in the intimate space of artist Claudia Heinzler’s private apartment.
__ *Adam Rex, “Wall of Essence”, Magic the Gathering (Stronghold Expansion Pack 1998)
The show is the second chapter of anorak’s series “Mixed Feelings” curated by Lukas Ludwig, Johanna Markert and Florian Model.
Mildred’s Lane by Morgan Puett, Mark Dion, Grey Rabbit Puett
Cities: Delaware River Valley, United States of America
Art genre: Multidisciplinary, 1998 - present
Mildred’s Lane is a rustic, 96-acre site deep in the woods of rural northeastern Pennsylvania. It is a home and an experiment in living. Mildred’s Lane attempts to coevolve a rigorous pedagogical strategy, where a working-living-researching environment has been developed to foster engagement with every aspect of life. The entire site has become a living museum, or rather – a new contemporary art complex(ity). It is now important to sidestep the debates around what is art ( or design, architecture and fashion) in order to activate these turbulent multiplicities. It is more a question of praxis and action, is it in an institution? Storefront? A gallery? Deep in the woods? At Home?
Letzte Wohnungen (Last apartments) by Theater Freiburg / Director Viola Hasselberg / Dramaturgy Jonas Görtz / Music Bernadette LaHengst / Costumes and set design Viva Schudt
Cities: Freiburg, Germany
Art genre: Theater, 2014-2016
The theater project “Letzte Wohnungen” (Last apartments) is a theatrical and discursive journey with very old and very young people in a home for senior-citizens: the Wohnstift Freiburg in south west Germany. A group of children and adolescents imagined a possible future in about 100 years’ time, when all problems regarding optimization of the human condition will have been solved: failed organs can be regrown instantly, life can be extended infinitely, sleep is abolished, natural birth no longer necessary. Realizing that something is missing in this world, they decide to travel back in time, to the year of 2016, where they will meet “old people”, something that no longer exists. The future’s “replicants” are all very old themselves, but since aging has been overcome as well, they all live in the everlasting bodies of youth. Back in time, our present, they engage with the elderly in their retirement home, where they meet and learn from a historical form of life: a life where experiences are made through the fundamental processes of growing, ageing and finally death.
The project was realised in a long-term commitment of about two years, during which weekly rehearsals with the inhabitants of the home – that averaged about 87 years of lifetime – took place. The performance itself was a course through several apartments where intimate scenes between the old and the young performers were presented in form of installation-style audio drama scenes. As a result, the spectators were able to not only be part of a theatrical performance, but could also experience a very private world of a generation with rather little contact to younger ones.

Sonntag by Adrian Schiesser + April Gertler
Cities: Berlin, Germany
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 2012 ongoing
We invite one artist to show their work within a domestic apartment context (the apartment is never that of the artist themselves) and we make that artist’s favorite cake – in our opinion the event in Joseph Beuy’s words is a social sculpture. The cake element references Kaffee und Kuchen German style but it is also another way for the viewing audience to understand and get a small insight into who the artist is.
Shifting Spaces by Sandra Gnjatović
Cities: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Art genre: Visual & performance art, 2014 - 2016
‘Shifting Spaces’ evokes physical and temporal awareness that arises when we allow ourselves to a slowed-down, sentient experience.

During 44 Days, various artists inhabit W139, giving in to a sense of community and compassion. The artworks range from daily performances to an enormous mural and from video screenings to a teahouse. ART = LIFE = WORK”, Louwrien Wijer
