Talk with artists who participate in the SILENT WORKS exhibition.
20. November 2020
The SILENT WORKS exhibition will bring artistic approaches together that explore the imperceptibilization of labor processes as the basis for coding, controlling, and conditioning social reality. This inquiry will shed light on the ongoing restructuring of work and enable a recasting of what labor means in the context of art and media. On November 20 we will invite artists who participate in the SILENT WORKS exhibition to have a discussion with us.

Beschreibung der Veranstaltenden
The rapid increase of housing prices, its subsequent displacement of people and compaction of living spaces shapes the context for this salon. Instead of looking at the structural change of cities, we will leave the birds-eye perspective and, through different artists practises, look at how our personal bodies are interconnected with the urban environment they are situated in.
Through sharing experiences, public discussion and physical exercises, we will examine the spacial adjustability of the human body as a metaphor for the housing-crises we are facing today. We will look at the video works of Goeun Bae (South-Korea) and Ling-Yu He (Taiwan) a.o. who both use the means of the body to sketch out the boundaries of private and shared space. Furthermore we will talk with the artist Carsten Lisecki and architect Monika Konrad about their practises related to the topic.
The salon will take place at ABA’s temporary project space ABA/CADABRA situated inside the Haus der Statistik.
together with: Goeun Bae (Artist KR), Ling-Yu He (Artist, TW) , Monika Konrad (Architect, PL) , Carsten Lisecki (artist, DE) und Frank Fuchs (Hausmeister, DE).
