INTRA-ACTIONS at the Venice Biennial 2022

Venice Biennial 2022

Giving you a quick update on the spatial installation "Intra-Actions: Existence is not an Individual Matter" at Palazzo Mora, Room #18 at the Academic Venice Biennial 2022, curated by the European Cultural Center.

As mentioned in my previous Blog Post the installation is this year's contribution of our Center for Didactics of Art and Interdisciplinary Education at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

It is on display until 27th of November and you are cordially invited to visit and contribute to the artwork, as with pieces of coal provided for drawing on the walls, you can become involved too!

The installation is already growing - compare for yourself below:

PERFORMANCE: insitu ani·motion

Saturday June 11th and Sunday 12th, 2022 | Palazzo Mora, Palazzo Bembo, Marinaressa Gardens
By: Ivan Pantelic & Bernd Rohrauer

How can we use media as a participatory tool to simultaneously create impact on space and people? This project aims to answer this question. Understanding space as an outcome of social processes, insitu ani·motion is developed as a method that enables participatory performative public space interventions by collective video-making.

How is this achieved? By creating conditions for real-time video-making onsite collaboration: a technical tool provides a platform which entices passers-by to change their routines, get together and create a collective stop motion-based animated film on site, screen it on the surrounding surface and thus contribute to placemaking by changing its use and appeal. This challenges the conventions of mediamaking by blending its different phases which, conventionally, would be separated in time: the production, post-production and screening coincide. Neither the outcome itself is fixed, nor are the roles of partakers, simultaneous filmmakers, editors and spectators.

CONCERT: The touch of a heartbeat

Sunday 12th, 2022 | 4pm-5pm | Palazzo Mora
Agnes Haider - keys Andreas Broger - reeds Dietmar Flosdorf - strings Raphael Vorraber - drums

Visit Palazzo Mora to hear the beautiful melodies from musicians from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Four musicians from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna have come together and play their own compositions and improvisations for piano, saxophone, viola and drums. The unusual cast triggers emotions, comes from the soul and arises spontaneously in interaction.
