b: ATELIER is located in the small regional town of Batlow near the southern Australian Alps. Batlow was severely impacted by the Black Summer Fires of 2020 & this ARI is one artist’s response to help her disaster affected town recover and renew itself in new and creative ways. Artist Robyn Veneer Sweeney is committed to encouraging locals and tourists to visit and support the output of the local arts community, through showing curated contemporary artworks and facilitating locals to engage with the arts through workshops both in-studio and through outreach. b: ATELIER running costs and improvements have been entirely funded by one artist with small donations of equipment by the local arts community.

The Union is a newly created Oslo-based organization (2020), an artist-run mediation platform consisting of Slovakian Martinka Bobrikova, Peruvian-Palestinian Rodrigo Ghattas-Pérez, and Spanish Oscar de Carmen. One of the core missions of The Union is to explore new socio-political realities through digital and physical activism and creative-citizen movements: the impact of Covid-19 – for artists, activists, thinkers, and creative minds – and its aftermath, being one of the most urgent ones. The Union´s laid-back projects target power structures in institutions, triggering loosen-up critical reflections through the use of unconventional, domestic, and experiential practices. We work to create other valorization structures for art, life, and culture, and to reshape the publics’ interaction; to actively participate in the collective design of new forms of care, participation, and empowerment through the arts. Whilst we cultivate countercultures and creative-civil community engagement.

FFTN is an independent space in St. Petersburg, Russia. FFTN is located in 4,5 meters of the former buffet in a building belonging to the local Artists’ Union. The project was launched in 2016 as a result of frustration from the local art-scene and became an attempt to overcome the prevailing “white cube” discourse. Today it is one of the key exhibition spots in the city as well as the meeting point and hub – a hybrid place, that would slip away from any rigid definitions and appropriations. FFTN widely collaborates with local independent art spaces as well as institutions (i.e. National Center for Contemporary Art). The projects were supported by The Foundation of Vladimir Smirnov and Konstantin Sorokin, Austrian Cultural Forum, Pro Helvetia Moscow.

We are a creative and political collective that has grown out of the solidarity and sister*hood – and the difficulties – we have experienced in the industry. We want to destigmatise stripping and sex work as a whole, to start a dialogue about sex work in which people can learn about our work and lives, and, last but not least, to share the art of stripping. The sex industry presents many problems. Our collective want to provide a space where strippers’ voices can be heard and where we can share our love for sensual movement without being at the mercy of strip club rules and discrimination. We are advocates of the decriminalization of sex work globally. We condemn gender and racial discrimination in the sex industry. We want to challenge oppressive structures. We, the BSC, bring you original performance, pole skills, and sheer sexuality on a silver platter, with a political edge. Forget everything you thought you knew about strippers.

BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS
BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS is an on-going collective enunciation initiated in Autumn 2019 which exhibition will be hosted in two mirroring spaces: ERGO Collective and Space 52, Athens. This collective practice deals with the historical trope of the individualisation of an author and architectonic forms of authorship engaging in creating modes of practice that reverse this traditional status. To develop into anonymity of a murmur, BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS attempts to re-codes and reverses these architectonic forms of authorship, where power play, proliferation of meaning and the ideological figure of a ‘present author’ shapeshift into nameless entities. This suggested new state of equilibrium, no longer refers to a singular subject but is rather designated to the subject’s cumulative space of vocation. B.W as a host, is a hybridised figure, scripted under the form of an inhabited dwelling where authorship is delegated into chains of commands and mechanical processes. Setting forward the blueprint of a show, B.W as a narrator – now evacuated by the author – is hosted throughout a constellation of ready-mades, performance, a radio station, an internet portal and photographic slides. It is no longer a manipulation of the real but a simulated situation, a potential/hypothetical scenario. Dealing with the phantom of wording, […]
Peter Kogler / EYES ONLY
The influential Viennese media artist Peter Kogler shows the installation EYES ONLY, for which he also uses a 3D LED fan for the first time. The artist, who participated in the documenta IX in Kassel in 1992, is internationally renowned for his computer animations, video projections, and illusionistic as well as real spatial labyrinths that animate and redefine architecture. Using computer-set, digitally printed paper webs and a projection generated by a 3D LED fan, Peter Kogler transforms the whole gallery space into a showcase of so much attraction. Curved lines along the walls, ceiling and floor strive towards a hologram-like, free-floating eye, which, like the human one, is constantly in slight motion. The overall picture appears like a modern icon, which triggers a wide range of associations in the viewer, ranging from the illusion of the private sphere, through the public Big Brother level to the meta-level of the divine eye.
The Quarantine Exhibition
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
