NATASCHA SADR HAGHGHIAN (Berlin) entitles her work with a play on words, based on a Henry Kissinger quotation. The exhibition is a new project by NATASCHA SADR HAGHGHIAN, in which the artist has literally converted the main exhibition space of Kunstverein MÃ¼nchen into a car-less street. Taking the phenomenon of the Car Free Sunday during the 70s oil crisis as an example, the artist addresses the peculiar relationship between the global economical-political situation and everyday life.
WAS IST Ã–FFENTLICHKEIT?
DISPOSITIVE WORKSHOP, Part 3
WAS IST Ã–FFENTLICHKEIT? (What is a Public Sphere?) is a new video installation at Kunstverein MÃ¼nchen by Katya Sander (Copenhagen / Berlin). The work takes as its starting point the Olympic Village and especially the small bungalows that today house students. In 1972 when the Olympic Village was designed for the Olympic Games in Munich, live television broadcast became possible, and consequently, the games were one of the first larger events being broadcasted live and globally.
The video is produced in collaboration with current inhabitants of the Olympic Village, amongst others. WAS IST Ã–FFENTLICHKEIT? is the third part of the project series DISPOSITIVE WORKSHOP, where artists are invited to realise projects in collaboration with a group of people from Munich.
Opening: Thursday 15 July 2004, 7 pm
Artist talk: Saturday 17 July, 4 pm
