Exhibition: The Bring In Take Out – Living Archive (LA)
The Bring In Take Out – Living Archive (LA) continously takes and uses artistic, creative and research means to create an interactive space that consists of a contemporary art exhibition, laboratory and public archive.
The concept – referring to the (post)Yugoslav space and beyond – is motivated by the feminist strategies of creating and processing a public and transformative archive through art, theory and practice. All LA-editions are produced by an exhibition laboratory (with “work stations” such as Audio/Video booths, where live artist talks, discussions and interviews are documented and presented; Perpetuum Mobile – a continously growing video art compilation as well as documentation of works of other art media; Readingroom, where the LA-questionnaire on feminism and art is filled out and discussed) through an interactive contemporary art exhibition conceptualized around emerging societal subjects.
The Viennese edition now focuses on the ossified concept of the center and periphery and its questioning. The aim is to challenge the representational and actual politics of the “cultural difference(s)”, which through the colonizing scope of universalistic/particular binary values generates Othering: other languages, other nations, other cultures etc. produced and (ab)used by the neoliberal society.
