Ausstellung in der Galerie der Komischen Künste
Ort: Komische Künste – Shop & Galerie
70 Jahre Frieden und dann dauernd dieser Krieg! 27 Zeichner haben die Patronen gefüllt, ihre Stifte entsichert und sind in den Kampf gegen das weiße Blatt gezogen. Denn es ist höchste Zeit, endlich sämtliche Fragen rund um das Thema „Krieg“ – immerhin die Lieblingsbeschäftigung des Menschen – zu beantworten:
Wer gewinnt eigentlich eine Tortenschlacht? Was tun, wenn Cartoonisten durch Deadlines radikalisiert werden? Und warum treffen Bomben immer genau die Bösen?
Mit erbarmungslosen Bildern von Ari Plikat, Bruno Haberzettl, Daniel Jokesch, Dorthe Landschulz, Elisabeth Semrad, Harm Bengen, HUSE, Miriam Wurster, Oliver Ottitsch, Schilling & Blum, Stephan Rürup, Til Mette und vielen mehr.

Patrícia J. Reis: Penetrating the black box
Installation @ ARTISTIC BOKEH
Opening: Tue, May 24, 19:00
Venue: ARTISTIC BOKEH, Electric Avenue
As part of Coded Cultures 2016, Portuguese artist Patrícia J. Reis presents 'Penetrating the black box'. The installation proposes the photographic apparatus as a "black box" and as a metaphor to reflect upon the relation between the private and public space of the image. Inspired by Vilém Flusser's writings on photography, the artist employs his concepts of faith and magic, event and happening, towards the "coded cameras", questioning the existence of the political space of the digital image. In the installation Penetrating the black box, Reis creates a "scene" consisting of a mechanical apparatus that is programmed in order to automatically trigger two photo digital cameras (at different moments) inside a black box. The output image from the cameras is transmitted in real-time onto two monitors.
The mechanical apparatus with two long arms penetrates the black box in a slowly programed gesture, accomplishing the artist's politically based decision to trigger the cameras or take photographs. On the other hand, the cameras that happen to be inside the black box in a specific position receive this command by chance, turning the previous event into a happening or a digital image. By displacing the camera's point of view from the private and occult space of the black box to the private but visible space of the monitors, the viewer becomes a photographer, incorporating the camera's point of view and completing the closed-circuit installation.
Patrícia J. Reis’ artist practice pursues new ways of interaction and sensorial engagement with the public in the interdisciplinary field of art, science and technology by employing aesthetic strategies of demystification and deconstruction. Reis is currently researching on interactive haptic visuality in the field of Media Art with a fellowship from the National Science Technology Foundation of Portugal. Since 2012, Reis has been based in Vienna and is a member of Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory – a feminist hackerspace.
Artistic Bokeh is an initiative of the Research Institute for Arts & Technology (RIAT). In its exhibition program, Artistic Bokeh qualitatively explores, maps and extends the electrosphere through the parameters of emerging artistic research and development.

VIS Vienna Independent Shorts 2016: FEAR IS NOT AN OPTION
13th Festival for short film, animation & music video
Opening: Wed, May 25, 19:30 @ Gartenbaukino
Orte: Stadtkino im Künstlerhaus, METRO Kinokulturhaus, Filmmuseum, Gartenbaukino
At the end of May, the city of Vienna will be much influenced by international films with a length of no more than 30 minutes. More than 300 short films, animations and music videos are going to be screened at Stadtkino im Künstlerhaus, METRO Kinokulturhaus,the Austrian Film Museum and at Gartenbaukino, when VIS Vienna Independent Shorts declares the festival a fear-free zone.
“Fear is not an Option” is the 13th edition’s focus, that couldn’t be more relevant considering the latest attacks in Brussels. VIS 2016 takes the current social and political conditions as its starting point and discusses systemic crises, man-made catastrophies, the pursuit of freedom and hope for a better life in seven curated programmes.
“Triangle programme” in collaboration with the Netherlands and Canada
Fear acts as a bad adviser in times of enclosure and delineation, loss of trust and refusal of solidarity. Together with two partner festivals from the Netherlands and Canada, VIS takes this mood as a starting point for an international discussion in the so-called “triangle programme”, which will screen in all three countries.
The Go Short festival in Nijmegen, one of Europe’s emerging short film festivals, holds its ground facing the political crises and compiles scenarios under the title “Keep your head up”, that tell of a positive debate with conflicts.
The prestigious Festival du nouveau cinéma in Montreal on the other hand takes on lost Utopias of mankind under the title “Utopia and how to get there (or not)”.
Spotlight on Anouk de Clerq in collaboration with sixpackfilm
One of the two spotlights of the festival is dedicated to the Belgian artist Anouk de Clerq. The award-winning filmmaker’s oeuvre is presented and discussed within a special at METRO Kinokulturhaus together with sixpackfilm. Anouk de Clerq explores the audiovisual potential of computer language, in order to create new worlds focusing on their architectural characteristics. This year’s festival sujet features a still from de Clerq’s film “Building”.

Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber: Trophäen ihrer Exzellenz
Exhibition in the SCHAURAUM Angewandte
Opening: Wed, May 25, 19:00
Venue: SCHAURAUM Angewandte
Exemplary objects speak about the complicity between architecture and changing power relations in the transformation of Johann Wolfgang Goethe-university in Frankfurt: the university changed from a castle-like citizens' university of the German Empire to a modernist mass university, including the Frankfurt School, to neoliberal “Clusters of Excellence”.
Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber, based in Vancouver and Vienna, have worked on projects addressing cities, architecture, and the politics of representation and of space since 1994.
