On January 18th the exhibition Queer Spaces Vienna 2023 at Kunsthalle Exnergasse opend. Our work WILDES FLEISCH is part of it!
With Em Schwarzwald.
Installation with film (36:48 min), text collage and audio interviews.
How to live together? is the initial question we asked each other and different LGBTQI+ people with whom we have lived together in ways or have moved through their spaces with them. For Queer Art Spaces 2023 we want to share with the visitors: different stories spanning generations, backgrounds, and countries that materialize in the form of a silent film, audio recordings and a text collage. Some of the queer spaces that are part of our work still exist, others are already queerfeminist history that we fathom. All participants have realized queer forms of living together. For example at "Qu[e]erbau Wien", at the "Verein für die Barrierefreiheit in der Kunst, im Alltag und im Denken", the "Raumstation 001" or "VN Jaeger & Schwarzwald - Autopoietischer Raum der Garten". The film itself is placed in a unique environment on the countryside - in a place that many years ago was taken in possession by a group of feminists/lesbians/queers - also to create art. Animals and plants are seen as life companions. Images, texts and events refer to people, experiences, times and places that are formative for the protagonists. The film offers the viewer: glimpses into their ideorythmic coexistence. 2016/2023
