Whiteness as Property

Curated by Ana Hoffner ex-Prvulovic*
After the text of the same name by Cheryl I. Harris

The exhibition project Whiteness as Property attempts to question property relations that are saturated with racism from an economic, materialist perspective.
It shows instruments for addressing possessive individualism and investigates whether the art field can serve as a source of alternative models of possessive
subject/object relationships that are critical of racism.

The focus of the exhibition is on aesthetic practices developed in relation to property and possession. It shows artistic positions which challenge the taken-for-
granted nature of the historical and contemporary ownership of always already racialized subjects and objects through specific examinations of things and materials.
On the one hand, artistic practice has an investigative function through its examination of racialized property relations; on the other hand, techniques developed in
the exhibition demonstrate how subjects lose their sovereignty through the handling of objects, how they acquire a life of their own and cannot be transformed into things.
Crucial to these works is that they focus on the affective implications of possession, without romanticizing the lack of it. Rather, artistic practice acts as a field of
experimentation in which the multi-layered character of possession becomes visible first: we are often inevitably not in possession of ourselves and at the same time
possessive of others. Nevertheless, is it possible to find an ethical dimension of property and possession? Can a form of subjectification be developed that is not based
on the right to own, but is aware of the importance of collectivity for the formation of property relations and thus has the potential to combat racism from an economic direction?

In her text “Whiteness as Property,” published in 1993, legal scholar Cheryl I. Harris writes about the formation of property relations along racial categories. Racism not only
dispossessed Black people, it also defined ownership itself as a right reserved for white identity. What Harris addresses in the context of the United States has a prehistory in
older conceptions of the liberal subject. As the owner of itself, the liberal subject is not only involved in the production of race, it is also significantly shaped by the urge to possess.
It is against the background of the so-called “possessive individualism” that today’s racist relations as well as the process of reification must be thought of. For the making of
objects cannot be detached from racialized questions of ownership – things only become what they are through the possibility of their capitalist appropriation and their circulation
as a commodity.

9th Bucharest Biennale: Farewell to Research

BB9 program
The curatorial project “Farewell to Research” has originally been developed for the 9th edition of the Bucharest Biennale. The proposed program consisted
of a series of experimental, process-based trajectories including keynote statements, research labs, performative events, research screenings, research seminars,
and publications, all pointing to artistic research as a practice that could designate creative propositions for thought in action. These activities were planned
for the spring of 2020, but due to the COVID-19 situation, only the discursive program (online) organized at the Goethe-Institut Bucharest could take place:
a curatorial workshop Handful thrown into air and scattered over earth (in collaboration with HDK Valand, Gothenburg University: Mick Wilson); and a curatorial
symposium Contemporary Art Biennials—our hegemonic machines in states of emergency (in collaboration with OnCurating, Zurich University of the Arts:
Dorothee Richter and Ronald Kolb).

7 March-10 April 2021


In Stephanie Misa’s (PHL / USA) most recent solo exhibition, MAGA MEETS MARIE, a visually compelling assemblage of banners, hats and chandeliers
create references to QAnon, Proud Boys and Marie Antoinette.

These objects in the gallery space enable a critical engagement with multiracial whiteness as recently played out in a cosplay turned violent riot at the
US Capitol, a cartoonish parody of the storming of the Bastille. As Karl Marx writes in "The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte", people ‘anxiously
conjure up the spirits of the past to their service, borrowing from them names, battle slogans, and costumes in order to present this new scene in world
history in time-honored disguise and borrowed language’, a séance of revolutions past and present.

K/HAUS Round Table

Frauen* und Frauen*Netzwerke sind im permanenten Dauermodus des sich Re-, Neu- und Auto-Organisierens. Es ist ein täglich fortsetzender und wiederholender Zyklus,
welcher bereits selbst als ein Archiv von Handlungs- und Arbeitsweisen darstellt.

Doch wie kann ein „kollektives Miteinander“ organisiert werden? Können in einem generationenübergreifenden Umgang miteinander neue Spielräume und transparente
Zugänge innerhalb Organisationen geschaffen werden? Was passiert morgen, nachdem die Kreisläufe „durchbrochen“ wurden?

Zum Gespräch sind die folgenden Institutionen und Frauen*Netzwerke eingeladen: VBKÖ – Vereinigung Bildender Künstlerinnen* Österreichs, Saloon Vienna und Künstlerhaus
Vereinigung mit:

Tanja Prušnik (Künstlerhaus Vereinigung),
Neda Hosseinyar (VBKÖ-Vorstand seit 2020),
Mika Maruyama (VBKÖ-Vorstand seit 2020),
Stephanie Misa (VBKÖ),
Julia Hartmann (Saloon Vienna),
Doris Richter (Saloon Vienna) und
Aline Rezende (Saloon Vienna)

Die eingeladenen Frauen*Netzwerke geben Einblick in vergangene und gegenwärtige Praxen und diskutieren Ausblicke auf zukünftige Handlungsspielräume.

Durch das Gespräch führt die freie Kuratorin und Redakteurin Georgia Holz gemeinsam mit den Künstlerinnen* der Ausstellung, die u.a. Mitglieder* der Vereinigungen sind bzw.
zu den Frauen*Netzwerken in Beziehung stehen.

Tue - Thu, Sat 11:00-18:00 / Fri 11:00-20:00

Curated by Mika Maruyama

Yuka Tsuruno Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of the Summer Project “Body Electric”
from Saturday, August 19 to Saturday, August 26.

Taking its title from the Walt Whitman poem "I Sing the Body Electric," the exhibition sees the
interrelationship between mind -body , that the body is a conduit to the outside world.

While focusing on the figure of the body within Asia, the works in the exhibition are rooted in
everyday life and the sensory experiences re/constructed by an influence of nature, geography,
culture, and politics. The exhibition explores various dimensions from the state of sexuality and
gender, to embodiment and subjectivity, and political discourses.

Archipelago Mountain

FÜNFZIGZWANZIG, Residenzplatz 10, 2.OG, 5020 Salzburg,
ÖFFNUNGSZEITEN Di – Sa 13–17h / Do bis 20h

Curated by Ana de Almeida & Stephanie Misa

This is a project about landscape as formal and informal disposition of elements. Coordinates.
An arrangement, a hierarchy: borders and de-limitations, transpositions and transgressions,
frames and their inside-outside, margins, and of course landscape—of the geographical, political,
personal, and emotional nature.

Edouard Glissant’s Traité du Tout-Monde. (Poétique IV), calls it archipelagic thinking,
a group of islands that lends its topography to an alternative imaginary:
a reassessment of the insularity of bound cultures, of nation-states, and the heaviness
of “continental thought”. The archipelago is an alternative imaginary, one that posits that
identity could be as a conglomeration of islands (composed of many, yet is one).

Oh these little earthquakes, here we go again, these little earthquakes.
Doesn’t take much to rip us into pieces
(Tori Amos' Little Earthquakes)

Identity formation, embodiment, complex colonial histories, evolution, interconnectedness,
diaspora and change— Oh to dispell the oppressive idea of nationalistic wholeness!

This is a project about landscape.

NIGHT SCHOOL part of the Wiener Festwochen, Akademie des Verlernens

Volkskundemuseum Wien, Laudongasse 15-19, 1080

The Night School is an evening school where thinking, teaching, and learning are done from
minoritarian, marginalised, rebellious, and vulnerable positions. This "little" school opens its doors
every week at the Volkskundemuseum in Vienna to interfere with hegemonic knowledge regimes. On
the curriculum are forms, bodies, methods, points of view, geographies, and fantasies that can
contribute to what can be called decolonizing knowledge. Not only will participants study together,
they will also eat together.

The Night School is a course in which educators, collectives, artists, activists, initiatives, theorists
teach – in the sense of a political and critical education that asks: What is recognised as knowledge?
Who decides what knowledge is? What are other conceivable forms of knowledge?

The Night School sees school critically, and above all politically, dealing with urgent contemporary
questions in its courses. It combines learning, unlearning and demanding. It won’t stop talking about
standardisation, marginalisation, and discrimination. It sees through dominant thinking and action.
And it won‘t forget that school is as much a place of perpetuation as of social change.

The teachers include the indigenous activist Sônia Guajajara (Imperatriz); the political and educational
theorist María do Mar Castro Varela (Berlin); the philosopher Nikita Dhawan (Innsbruck); the
performer Michelle Mattiuzzi (São Paulo, Salvador da Bahia); the pioneers of self-organised, critical
migrant cultural and educational work, Maiz (Linz); the Class for Post-Conceptual Art Practice of the
Academy of Fine Arts (Vienna); the sociologist Zülfukar Çetin (Berlin); the We Are Here Academy,
organized by refugees (Amsterdam); the feminist theorist Neferti X.M. Tadiar, and activist Silvia Federici.

She took off like a bat out of hell.
Skid marks and dust left in her wake
swirling in a sudden vacuum.

They were sitting on the balcony, thinking of what causes what.
Air fresh, the hum of the machines suddenly still. She felt the breeze
on her naked legs, looking up at the sky with its reddish lilac blueish light.
A spot a black spot started to move and suddenly it flew
a bird that flew jerkily and interrupted her thoughts.

You stopped inhaling.

In Didto’s Amoa we invite diasporic artists to interrogate this state of imaginative
and ideological gesture of return. We seek to gather artists who occupy this state of “faraway-ness”
in its multiple forms. Through this exhibit, we seek to generate the kind of conversation that will be
critical and imaginative in its examination of possibilities (and perhaps) impossibilities of this attempt
to return. In this manner, we seek to extend our contemporary understanding of the diasporic
condition—taking into account the various ways in which we define and question our notions of home,
but also the many ways we respond to the need to define the places we call “home”, we consider our
own—didto sa amoa, there where we’re from.

Didto’s Amoa (Woher wir kommen) features works by Alyx Arumpac, Martha Atienza,
Enzo Camacho & Amy Lien, Jean Pierre Cueto, Eisa Jocson, Trinka Lat
and Jake Verzosa.

This exhibition is curated by Stephanie Misa and Lawrence Lacambra Ypil.

Artist Talk is in English, Moderation in English and German.
Die zeitgenössische philippinische Tänzerin und Künstlerin Eisa Jocson entwickelte Macho Dancer (2013), eine Solo Performance, die auf ihrer Studie männlicher Macho
Tänzer beruht, eine spezielle Gruppe von Performern, die Manilas Gay Bar Szene frequentieren. Jocson absolvierte eine Ausbildung als bildende Künstlerin mit einem
Hintergrund in Ballett und untersucht Repräsentationen des Körpers, Gendervoreingenommenheit, Politiken der Verführung und die Konstitution philippinischer Identität.
Macho Dancing wird von jungen Männern in Nachtclubs sowohl für männliche als auch für weibliche KlientInnen vorgeführt. Macho Dancing, mit seinem speziellen
Vokabular an Bewegung und Physikalität, ist auf den Philippinen ein einzigartiges Phänomen mit einer ökonomisch getriebenen Sprache der Verführung, die
Männlichkeit als körperliches Kapital benutzt.

details on esel

The tropics in winter, a pineapple in the snow, a here and there collapsed into each other and now mojitos are the principal drink of the Wiener Pinacotekerball 2016.
There is no irony in the swirling of cocktail glasses, others say the drink was invented by enslaved Africans working in cuban sugar cane fields.
The name mojito coming from African word mojo, which means to place a little spell.
Each mint stalk is gleaming in the twinkling light of a wonderland confection.

We can have this now, the exotic abundance of everything under the sun with a snap of our fingers.
But, Mein Gott, what of those people who brought the drink?
They are so awkward, and yet here they are. For heaven’s sake you, you there, learn some manners!
We do not do that around here. We do not laugh out loud, or show our teeth, or slurp our soup, or wear color.
We are gracious and cultured, so get in-step with your tutti-frutti tropicana hats and rolling Rrrrs.
It is a serious business we are doing, none of that funny stuff.
The mahogany veneer emanates with the heat of an equatorial forest as with leather hides glistening on the floor,
and the ananas madeleines (so trés lecker), says our fine gentleman collector, are “ the tropics in the snow ”.
