LONGING FOR… Symposium and Exhibition [at Graz]

LONGING FOR… Symposium and Exhibition in MotionAn Interdisciplinary Spatial Research Lab curated by Charlotte Pöchhacker :: December 13-16, 2010 :: Grazer Kunstverein, Burggasse 4, A 8010 Graz, Austria.

Explorative motion is the leitmotif for LONGING FOR…, an interdisciplinary spatial research lab, that focuses on bodies, spaces and motion. The lab inspires innovative approaches through trans-genre questions and examines interfaces between architecture, composition and choreography.

The LONGING FOR… performance installation was created during the project’s first phase. Taking as its point of departure the GSarchitects’ mp09 building, LONGING FOR… #Score 1 examined the extent to which actual features from architecture can be presented, in response developing a hybrid performance installation.

The symposium and the exhibition mark the start of the second phase of LONGING FOR… This focuses on 3 central issues: exploring innovative notation systems for ever-increasing sound, form and motion presentations, the question of the potential of transposition, of transdisciplinary readability and the translation of artistic systems as well as a comprehensive look at new spatial and performative dispositives and hybrid formats.

From December 13-16, 2010, LONGING FOR… hopes to stimulate the curiosity of participants and visitors by animating the rooms of the Graz art association in an unconventional manner. The rooms will feature subtle gestures, installations and performances that provide insight into the research process of the artists involved in the symposium. The motion that characterizes the event will be carried over to visitors who will be invited to set themselves into motion—both intellectually and physically.

After the two-day symposium, the exhibition will remain and will be extended through the special MOVE AND MOVIES. is dedicated to one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century, Merce Cunningham and his amazing artistic staff including Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, John Cage, David Tudor, Charles Atlas, Elliot Caplan and many others, who in a singular manner already anticipated many of the issues that are topical today.
