ar/ge kunst Gallery Museum of Bolzano
The ar/ge kunst Gallery Museum of Bolzano is situated in the Via Museo near the South Tyrolean Archaeological Museum.
In 2015 ar/ge kunst celebrates thirty years since its foundation in 1985. To mark this anniversary the entire annual programme will serve as a critical reflection on the history of ar/ge kunst and on the Kunstverein as the institutional model that has characterized it since the beginning.
Through the various practices of the participating artists, this process of self-examination will centre on the exhibition as a mode of research, production, collaboration and restitution; a space and time conceived to facilitate reciprocity and mutual influence between the exhibitions and the accompanying program of public discussions, workshops and performances.
Spatial Dispositions - Aldo Giannotti
From February 7th to April 30th 2015
Opening, Saturday February 7th 2015 7 pm
The first exhibition project of 2015 is entitled "Spatial Dispositions" and has been devised by Italian artist Aldo Giannotti (b. 1977, lives and works in Vienna). As a progressive examination of ar/ge kunst itself, Spatial Dispositions will operate as the introduction to the anniversary program.
Beginning with a series of spatial observations on the planimetry and architecture of ar/ge kunst, Giannotti's research expands into the broad field of relations that have defined and continue to shape it as an institutional space.
The history and economics of ar/ge kunst, its mission statement and ambitions, its responsibilities towards members and visitors, its relationship to its cultural and political context are here translated into projects for potential installations and performances.
