Speculative Curating with Johanna Bruckner
Real Time Auction as Utopia
Friday 13th of January 2017, 4pm-10pm
The game play in Real Time Auction as Utopia establishes movement scores which tap into the algorithmic architectures that govern (real-time) civic movement, while simultaneously rearranging the logistics of relationality into one of social agency. A physically staged video game is based on situational references, data circulation in port cities, surveillance scandals and the role of organized labour. Collective in-depth research with the performers shapes form and direction.
Johanna Bruckner (born in Vienna in 1984) lives in Hamburg and Zurich. Her works could recently be seen at the Kunsthaus Hamburg and at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Ville Croce, Genoa. Bruckner was a scholarship holder for the artist studio program at the Banff Center for Visual Arts in Canada. She works at the ZHdK.
The Postgraduate Programme in Curating, www.curating.org has invited artists for a series of interventions in the spaces of Migros Museum fuer Gegenwartskunst, its collection and its depots. The artists intervention promise to provide us new ways of access, new ways of seeing and interacting, new ways of institutional critique. The Students of the Postgraduate Programme in Curating and an interested public engage with the artist and within the workshop to re-view or re-envision the Museum and its „products“, questioning spaces, behaviour patterns, formats and to review the politics of display and collecting.
