‘Ding Dong Weltfrieden’ von Rene Berghold im Rahmen von ‘Zu Gast am Schlossberg’ Mai – Juni 2017

Am Freitag, 05. Mai 2017 um 16:00 Uhr eröffnet die Ausstellung ‘‘Ding Dong Weltfrieden’ des  jungen Steirischen Künstlers Rene Berghold im Rahmen von  ‘Zu Gast am Schlossberg’ im Glockenturm am Grazer Schlossberg. Der Grazer Glockenturm am Schlossberg wird in eine Klanginstallation verwandelt, die den Klang der Glocke, im Volksmund ‘Liesl’ genannt, aufgreift und mit Veränderungen der Höhen und Tiefen des Glockenklangs zur Melodie der Europäischen Hymne, ‘Ode an die Freude’ (Freude Schöner Götterfunken) von Ludwig van Beethoven, im gesamten Turm als Klangwolke hörbar macht.

Soundinstallation ‘Ding Dong Weltfrieden’ Dokumentationsvideo: ‘Ding Dong Weltfrieden’, 2017

Eine weitere neu entstehende Installation wird das in den Turm einfallende Tageslicht in den Innenraum verstärkt fortsetzen und erlaubt Besucher_innen sich im Spiegel betitelt mit ‘Freigeist/ Geistfrei‘ selbst zu fotografieren, eine Persiflage unserer selbst, die uns herausfordert Stellung zu beziehen, uns selbst zu hinterfragen. Ist der Freigeist den die Europäische Hymne ausdrückt noch Realität und stehen wir mit allen Konsequenzen dazu oder suchen wir uns die Leckerbissen heraus und ‘leave the rest’, wie man im Britischen so schön sagt, berauben dadurch die ‘Freiheit’ ihres inhaltlichen Gedankenguts.


Wichtige Ansatzpunkte kommen bei Berghold aus den Titeln seiner Werke, welche den Visuellen Elementen eine weitere Bedeutungsebene hinzufügt. Ausgewählte Kurzfilme des Künstlers Berghold werden auf der zweiten Etage des Glockenturms einen Einblick in sein meist auch humoristisches Werk geben, bei dem beispielsweise eine Arbeit den Werdegang einer künstlerischen Karriere darstellt. Zu sehen ist der Künstler, der ein Loch in einen Holzsessel schlägt und sich anschließend auf diese Lücke setzt. Betitelt ist das Werk mit ‘Der Künstler schlägt sich durch’/ ‘Der Künstler setzt sich durch‘, 2015. Mit Witz trifft er den Ernst der Lage, wie den Nagel auf den Kopf und lässt uns Schmunzelnd zurück.

Bestehende grafische Zeichnungen und fotografische Arbeiten werden in den Nischen und Ecken des Glockenturms, durch ein kuratorisches Konzept so platziert, dass der Besucher sich auf einer Entdeckungsreise durch die drei Ebenen des Glockenturms befindet, auf den Spuren des künstlerischen Werkes Berghold’s, der wie in der Klanginstallation zu sehen aus dem musikalischen Bereich kommt und seine künstlerischen Werke zuletzt in Wien im Ausstellungsraum ‘Brick 5’ gemeinsam mit zwei weiteren jungen Steirern präsentiert hat.

Im Rahmen der Ausstellungseröffnung am Freitag, 05. Mai um 15:00 Uhr gibt es eine Führung durch mich in meiner Rolle als Kuratorin und den Künstler Rene Berghold, welche auch für Pressefragen genutzt werden kann. Die Ansprache findet um 16:00 Uhr mit einem Vertreter des Bürgermeisters statt.

Die Ausstellung ist ein Projekt der AØH Art Consultancy Haberz unter der Leitung von Daniela Haberz, M.A. gefördert durch die Stadt Graz und das Bürgermeisteramt der Stadt Graz.

Wir freuen uns auf ihren Besuch und Berichterstattung, nachstehend alle Daten im Überblick.

On Friday, 5th of May 2017 at 4.00 p.m. the exhibition ‘Ding Dong World Peace’ by emerging Austrian artist Rene Berghold in the framework of ‘YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) – Visiting Schlossberg Mountain’ opens in the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Mountain in Graz, Austria.

The Bell Tower, a former prison and landmark situated on Schlossberg Mountain in the midst and overlooking Graz, Austria will be transformed into a sound cloud reverberating the sound of the nearly five tonne bell and transforming the sound into the melody of the European Hymn ‘Ode to Joy’ by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Sound installation ‘Ding Dong World Peace‘, 2017 Documentation video:  ‘Ding Dong World Peace’, 2017

The mirror installation ‘Freigeist/ Geistfrei’ in English ‘Libertine/ Empty Minded’, 2017 questions our mirrored-se

lf on our position between this counter-positioning word-pair. We are driven to decide if the ‘Free Spirit’ that the European hymn expresses is still reality for today’s Europe and if we live up to it with all the consequences or are we simply choosing bits and peaces and leave the rest as we please, therewith rob the ‘Libertine’ approach of its immanent content.

An important part in Berghold’s works are the titles, adding a further twist to the visual imagery that, often with a humorous approach on plain sight, faces us with an underlying critique on society and ourselves on closer examination. The way to success for an artist becomes apparent in a video installation whereby the artist hammers his way through a wooden chair and afterwards sits down on the empty space. ‘Der Künstler schlägt sich durch/ Der Künstler setzt sich durch‘, 2015 ‘The artist ekes out a living/ The artist asserts himself‘, 2015, wittily portraying the seriousness of an artist’s way to success.

A guided tour by myself in my role as the curator of the exhibition series and the artist Rene Berghold will take place on the opening day at 3.00 p.m

The exhibition is a project by the AØH Art Consultancy Haberz headed by Daniela Haberz, M.A. funded by the City of Graz and the Mayor of the City of Graz.

We look forward to your visit and reviews, following all data on one sight.

Olafur Eliasson at TBA21 Augarten

Olafur Eliasson – Green Light An artistic workshop

The current exhibition by Olafur Eliasson in the Viennese art space TBA21 at Augarten is on view until 5th June 2016 and includes a programme with lectures and workshops mainly for the group that has been chosen amongst fugitives and foreign people living in Vienna however, visitors are welcome. On 7th of April Olafur Eliasson himself will be at the exhibition and a performance by the group involved directed by artist and curator Johannes Porsch will take place starting from 12.00 p.m. again visitors are welcome.

The main task the foreign Viennese residents build a lamp designed by Olafur Eliasson including a green light which symbolizes the green light Olafur Eliasson wants to give to the open applications for asylum for a permanent stay for the people involved and also those staying in the three charitable partner organisations of TBA21 where the participants have been chosen from.

The exhibition and its programme is definitely worth a visit and it is a joy to watch the participants building the lamps who are attending German classes and are eating their lunch every day at TBA21.

The green light lamps can be bought from TBA21 and the further programme can be viewed under the following link: TBA21 Green Light

Vienna Gallery Days 2015

The Gallery Days Tour No. #1 for the friends of Albertina was an interesting and informing talk.

The curatorial Conversation with the artist Marko Lulic at the Galerie Senn started the tour and a performance at Galerie Christine König was the following exhibition we visited. Christine König’s Gallery was well staged like always  the works were installed in a perfect setup completed by the artist’s song a hymn to prepaid phone bills which we now know are better paid unless you want your quiet out of reach island mentality.

Looking forward to further gallery visits next time I’m around in Vienna and as Christine König put it well into words, better don’t spoil your relationship with the gallerist unless you plan to retire early.

Definitely worth visiting Schleifmühlgasse when you are in Vienna.

All my best,

Michael Schuster im Landtag Graz, Landhaushof Passage towards Herrengasse, Graz (AUT)

Michael Schuster in der Landhaushof Passage

Michael Schuster in der Landhaushof Passage, May 2015  

“The mirror that shows what you’re lacking” is one of the largest interface art works I have seen so far.

Austrian new media artist Michael Schuster and his studio have created a new interactive device, which passer-bys and people from and around Graz can interact with.
My first encounter with the art work, located  in a passage from Herrengasse towards the Sterirische Landhaushof about a month ago, made me pose the question towards the art work, What does the art work lack, was my counter-question to the question posed on the art work, that translates the German phrase into: “There are as well mirrors, that show what you are lacking.” The exact German phrase is: “Es gibt auch Spiegel, in denen man erkennen kann was einem fehlt.”
Upon my first encounter with the installation in the Landhaushof Passage it lacked depths and colour-proofing, as the writing did not spread towards the entire screen. The next day the guard lacked “health” as he turned up at work sick and had to go home. The art work was fine-tuned soon later as the technicians arrived and adjusted the depths to 5 pixle evenly spread as to appear three-dimensional. At that point in time, a few people engaged with the work into a discussion, after a week or two I felt the need of better adjusting of my spectacles and also my sunglasses needed optical lenses.
I started a co-operation with Optik Fauland, who is my optrician since almost 30 years. We chose Zeiss glasses for my Chanel Sunglasses with plastic glass for security purposes. This smaller scale project was bringing me down to earth after working for two or three weeks on adjusting the work.
My answer to the question posed by Michael Schuster’s art work was: “Time to think in order to develope visionary works.” which also relates to the sculpture in the Landhaushof according to greek mythology a half-god, half-human Faun, who according to the art work’s title is visionary and gazes directly into the direction into the centre of Schuster’s work. Be it accidentally or by precise calculation the result is perfection.
