so urban! Art and city locations
September 21 - September 28, 2018
The invited artists visited the Osnabrück Neumarkt in the period from 21.9. Used as an experimental field until September 28.9.2018, XNUMX. This urban space, which at the moment presents itself as a construction site, was explored by the artists using various artistic means. Passers-by and residents were invited to interrupt their usual directions of movement and gaze and realign them.
You can find project documentation on tangency.
How can rooms, niches, entrances, lines of sight, materials and colors be made visible in a new way? How do things appear that are often overlooked in everyday life in new and interesting ways? Which interventions and interventions can change the perception of a familiar environment? A total of 8 artists invited with their works to take part in unusual actions and generate new attentions in the process. What do we like about urbanity, what do we perceive as disruptive, dangerous, critical?
While the actions and artistic interventions at Neumarkt / disappeared after a short time, the works of the participating artists could still be explored in hase29 - Society for Contemporary Art in Hasestraße 29/30 until November 17, 2018. The exhibition “so urban!” Offered the opportunity to reflect on questions about urbanity from different perspectives.

Linking the moment, performance
Four to six performers at a time sound out the physical, spatial and communicative aspects of land surveying. What are the limits of communication? How do interpersonal contacts work near and far? How long does it take for looks to find each other? How do social spaces relate to the big picture - the earth's body? In a choreographic measurement performance, the artist examines the emotional gaps between distant human measuring points.

Photographs of selected areas of a facade are alienated by the artist through digital manipulation. These image motifs are applied to the corresponding facades in the form of large-format prints and thus create an irritating effect. The apparent duplication of the photographic motif and facade results in optical shifts that strain the eye and tempt you to take a closer look. Diana Sirianni creates a spatial photo collage that looks like a stage on which she moves together with passers-by. Comes in two days Diana Sirianni talking to passers-by and inviting them to become part of their artistic intervention.
