WorkLooking at crisis

Four artists from different corners of the world are WORKING on ‘Framing Crisis’: Janna Hartmann, Dominik Fleischmann, Berglind Hreiðarsdóttir and Joel Orozsco  have been working on-line with our guest philosopher Stefanie Baumann. All four artists have been invited to think about their practice in a free space, without any constraints or expectations in regards to their result.

AskA question for artists working with digital tools:

In order for a viewer to fully appreciate your work, do you think it is important that they know something about the digital method of production — e.g., something about the coding or something about the functionality of imaging software/hardware?


Bill D’Alessandro, a philosopher of mathematics, offers his insight on an image from Matthieu Gafsou’s series Vivants.

    Connections made by me

    Respectively it is targeted to philosophers and researchers, who are interested in conversing with artists, sharing knowledge and also learning from their artistic practice.It is a lab where visual artists mostly work with philosophers and not exclusively on philosophy. In that respect philosophical texts and wider topics may be in our areas of interest more as a means to explore seeing and thinking rather than the end on which we focus to extract information. It is lab which also aims at creating through experimentation and transfigurations of artefacts material which may raise philosophical questions and discussion.
