Im Kunstraum - the Podcast of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich

Habemus Podcast! Our podcast “Im Kunstraum” responds to the interest of our audience in background information on our exhibitions, in in-depth features about the topics we work on and a peek behind the scenes of our work. Since April 2019 our podcast presents audio-tours through our shows, interviews with curators and artists as well as recordings of our public program – following our mantra: experimental – performative – discursive.
You can find our podcast "Im Kunstraum" on your favourite audio-platform: Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Deezer - so you can follow us wherever you usually listen to podcasts!

 

 

Wake Words audio publication

The departure point for the exhibition Wake Words by and with The Golden Pixel Cooperative is the term “voice recognition”: It refers, on the one hand, to technological systems for language assistance and detection, which are silently creeping into many parts of our everyday lives. On the other, the second part of the formulation – recognition – indicates that this phenomenon already assumes a certain concept of a voice that is to be recognised. What is the basis of this (re)cognition? Which voices are heard, and which not? And isn’t there a potential advantage in remaining incognito?

 

The accompanying audio publication gathers artistic-scientific contributions in the form of audio pieces and is available online at the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich podcast channels. Additionally, there is a listening station in the exhibition space. In collaboration with 3sechzig/360, an edition of ceramic objects, which contain the audio publication, was designed.

With contributions by: AM Kanngieser & Lucreccia Quintanilla, Constanze Ruhm, Jessica Feldman, Eleni Ikoniadou & Viki Steiri

 

Here you can find the accompanying booklet to the exhibition.

Sweet Sixteen 

Happy Birthday!
Aside with anti-aging recipes and rhetoric about "aging with grace": we celebrate our birthdays in the best of moods! On the occasion of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich's 16th birthday, we'll have a special edition of our podcast, with everything you need for a pandemic birthday party: friends (but not too many) and good spirits (unlimited!). Together with founding director Christiane Krejs, who led Kunstraum from 2005-2018, and artist Claudia Lomoschitz, who just showed her performance project Partus Gyno Bitch Tits at Kunstraum, our artistic director Katharina Brandl plays a game of Taboo on our past and present. A listening recommendation for all those who always wanted to know how the Kunstraum made it into inquiries of the Lower Austrian Landtag, what witch's milk is and how the Kunstraum had its canteen flair exorcised - enjoy!

The podcast ist recorded in German.

Taken over by the action

In April we planned to start the performance series Sweet Sixteen, in celebration of Kunstraum’s 16th birthday, with Fanni Futterknecht's project Power to the Unspoken_Echoes of Resistance. The renewed lockdown forced us to replan - Fanni Futterknecht transformed the performance into a video, which is now in post-production. In this episode of "Im Kunstraum" Fanni Futterknecht and her collaborator Miwa Negoro talk about all the things you couldn't see (yet): the transformation of the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich into an image carrier, the role of the unspoken in times of isolation, and the feat of constant artistic rescheduling. Have fun!

Throwback: Stormy Weather

In the April edition of our podcast we dedicate ourselves to a well-known format: The Throwback! We discuss past exhibition projects to ask: What was it all about? Why was the exhibition relevant at the time? And: what did we learn from it?

This time we don't go far back into the history of the Kunstraum and look at Stormy Weather. The exhibition Stormy Weather explored the political and meteorological climate, focused on all sorts of human-made clouds and our agency over cloud infrastructures. The show was on view at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich in the fall of 2020 and was conceived in cooperation with Centre culturel suisse, Paris, where the exhibition was on view until April 18, 2021. Co-curators Claire Hoffmann and Katharina Brandl talk about some of the works on view, share their thoughts on translating a show from one exhibition space to another, and discuss how they encountered exhibition making during the pandemic. Enjoy!

The conversation is recorded in German.

Life constantly escapes

In the first episode of the new year, Katharina Brandl, artistic director of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, talks to guest curator Andrea Popelka about our most recent exhibition "Life constantly escapes". Andrea Popelka elaborates on theories of the black radical tradition that were important to her in the course of conceiving the project, and what it means to create an exhibition based on a togetherness of the senses in the era of Covid-19. The episode is accompanied by a harp piece by Ahya Simone. We hope you enjoy listening! (The conversation is recorded in German)

Forever Young
A cycle of poems by Ötzi - presented by Ariane Koch

 

Ötzi is the oldest human mummy ever found. He is known as a piece of frozen history that provides us with information about the Stone Age and evolution itself. With Forever Young, Ötzi addresses the public as a poet for the first time and not only evokes his life in the Stone Age, but also describes his present, unfulfilled love for another exhibit - the primeval horse. But did you know that Ötzi also had enemies, not only those responsible for his death? And that he secretly pursued his second career as a DJ?

With the radio play "Forever Young" and an accompanying edition, artist and playwright Ariane Koch focuses on the human ability to appropriate the millennia-old history of mankind through fiction. Even if we cannot fully comprehend the rift between Ötzi and Yeti. Drama!

Vampirische Prozesse

 

In the summer edition of our podcast, Katharina Brandl, artistic director of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich and Alice Wilke, guest curator of the exhibition DURST, which can be seen at Kunstraum from 01.07.2020 - 14.08.2020, talk about vampires as metaphors of our present: "The figure of the vampire is a mirror of social processes," summarizes Alice Wilke. What does it mean for contemporary art projects when the present itself suddenly intervenes and the context changes? In addition to a short guided tour throuth the exhibition, the similarities between virus and vampire will be addressed, as well as the planning of an exhibition during the COVID 19 pandemic. Enjoy !

Episode 5 - Throwback: The Enforced Dress

 

In episode 5 of our podcast "Im Kunstraum" Markus Pires Mata (Designer) chats with Susanne Neuburger (Head of Collection, mumok) and  Milica Tomic (Artist) about the exhibition “The Enforced Dress”, which was shown at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich in 2007 and curated by Susanne Neuburger. The exhibition "The Enforced Dress" (2007) gathered artistic works that worked with fashion and textiles. The proximity of fashion to the body, its social dimensions and its narrative potential were the focus of the project. In this episode, the panelists talk about Dior shows, the memory-political potential of fashion, Jörg Haider & Wolfgang Schüssel in Porsche and fashion as a social seismograph.

The discussion took place within the framework of the discourse series "Throwback", which is dedicated to past exhibition projects in the history of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich and renegotiates the set topics.

The discussion was recorded on November 21, 2019 and conducted in German and English.

Episode 3: Über Emotionsmaschinen und einen Planeten auf der Intensivstation: Care Matters (German)

The third episode of our podcast "Im Kunstraum" is the recording of the panel discussion Care Matters, which took place on May 10 at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich as part of the exhibition TechnoCare. The artist Marlies Pöschl, the artistic-artificial intelligence Aurore and Elke Krasny, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and co-curator of the exhibition Critical Care at the Architekturzentrum Wien (April 25 – September 09, 2019), will investigate Care as a curatorial and artistic practice in art and architecture. They will talk about emotion machines, about a planet in intensive care and why life with algorithms will not free us from the question of who should take away garbage after the revolution.

Before the discussion, which was moderated by Katharina Brandl and Friederike Zenker, the lecture performance Main, tenant / Hand, Holding of Les Maintenants & Marlies Poeschl took place. Enjoy!
