Blickwinkel II – by Sophia Vecchini

For her exhibition “Blickwinkel”, Sophia Vecchini let people without shelter become artists, as they were allowed to capture their everyday lives with a disposable camera. Sophia Vecchini conceived an exhibition from the resulting material. “It’s a nice feeling to give people the chance to be seen: with their perspectives, their courage and look at the world.” The exhibition can be summed up as unique, human and inspiring. Why? Read the interview and learn more about the special project “Blickwinkel”. If you haven’t read the first “Blickwinkel” interview with Sophia yet, you can find it here.

We conducted our first interview during the planning phase of your project “Blickwinkel”. Now, a few months later, the time has come and “Blickwinkel” is on display in the Wilmersdorfer Arcaden, a shopping mall since 24 March 2021.

Yes, I am very pleased that the exhibition now also has a second venue, namely the Wilmersdorfer Arcaden. Due to the current Corona measures, the exhibition at the Zentrum am Zoo has been postponed indefinitely for the time being. In the Arcaden, the exhibition is presented in a glass box. That’s great, because despite Corona, the shops are open for everyday needs. That’s why the arcades still have more than 10,000 visitors a day. This is, of course, a great opportunity for “Blickwinkel” to be seen (despite current Corona measures). The artworks are also offered for sale at the YourArtBeat Market. This is very important to me as I want the artists to get a financial reward too. Because they have taken the time and reflected things.

In the last interview you said that you wanted the artists to get money. But you also said that there were voices that said: Yes, but if you give money to people without shelter, they will probably spend it on drugs or alcohol.

That people without shelter always spend their money on drugs or alcohol is a prejudice, and in my project I want every artist to be seen as a human being and not as a person without shelter. Because for me, it is essential to emphasise that one should not approach people without shelter with such generalised prejudices. Moreover, for me and Katrin Lück, who is the patron of “Blickwinkel” and the Equal Opportunities Commissioner for the Wilmersdorf-Charlottenburg district, self-determination is very important. Equality means equal rights for all. We don’t tell anyone else how to deal with their money.

How many artists were you ultimately able to recruit for your project?

There are now four artists left. I distributed 14 disposable cameras. From the beginning, 20 pictures were planned for the exhibition. I achieved this goal, but it was planned that there would be one or two pictures per artist. The problem is that, on the one hand, some were not interested in taking part in such a project. Many women were not interested and I could hear a little bit from the social workers on site that women are a bit more ashamed. It is definitely riskier to live as a woman on the street and there are also many more men among the poor people without shelter. In the end, only six of the 14 cameras came back, but I also expected this because people without shelter are not always found in the same places. And if they were not there at the time the cameras were collected – yes, then that’s it. Others didn’t know how to use the cameras and had given up, which is understandable. I could not use the pictures of two of the cameras. But it is clear that disposable cameras simply do not have one hundred per cent performance as a product. I now have four male artists left and of course I am very happy about that. I have also had real contact with two of them. That means we discussed the pictures together. The two of them are simply great people and I sincerely hope that they will get something out of it financially. Both are very grateful to all the institutions that support them.

Do you know how old the artists are?

The two I have had contact with are 60 and 62 years old. Of the other two I don’t know more than their names.

If you were to describe your exhibition with three adjectives, what would they be?

Unique. Human. Inspiring. Well, I hope that others feel the same way, but I have been very inspired by this project. At least that had been one of my goals. The aim of “Blickwinkel” is to inspire people to think about certain social issues. Especially about urban poverty and homelessness; to open up a bit more, that homelessness is not just a stigma that is stuck in our heads.

The exhibition “Blickwinkel” can be seen until 30 April 2021 at the Wilmersdorfer Arcaden “WILMA” . Please pay attention to the Corona protection measures in force.

Sophia Vecchini wants to thank: Katrin Lück, Equal Opportunities Commissioner in the Wilmersdorf-Charlottenburg district & patron of Blickwinkel; Petra Schönberger; the management and team of the Bahnhofsmission am Zoo and the ZaZ, as well as all the individual case workers and social workers of the Berliner Stadtmission who have supported me; the sponsors of the tax consultancy Freiberger & Collegen; the YOUR ART BEAT Team!

Behind Your Art Beat – An Interview with Johanna Griebert

Maybe you can think of [Your Art Beat] as a kind of virtual museum

It is the year 2016. In the beginning it is just an idea, but soon Your Art Beat e. V. grew out of it. Johanna Griebert has been involved from the beginning, and today we will introduce her. Johanna is the chairperson of the board of Your Art Beat, along with Matthias Welker. In the interview, we talk about the history of the association and what Your Art Beat stands for. The aim of the association is “to take a holistic view on the art, culture and creative scene and [to] dedicate itself to the protection, preservation, wide-ranging and multimedia presentation of the most diverse arts”, as Johanna says. The mission: cultural education. The main motif here is the combination of modern media technologies and interfaces of the analogue and digital world. ” Maybe you can think of [Your Art Beat] as a kind of virtual museum,” she pursues. Artists who are selected through open calls are exhibited. Their works can be bought on the Your Art Beat Market. What exactly the YAB Market is all about? What the future of YAB will look like? You can find out in the following interview. Johanna also explains why experimenting with digital media in particular is so exciting and which features should not be missing from a good exhibition.

How did the association Your Art Beat start and what are your tasks there?

I have been involved in Your Art Beat from the very beginning. In 2016, after the presentation of my final project, back then my professor, now good friend and colleague Matthias Welker approached me and described his initial ideas for a project. From the first moment, I was enthusiastic and quickly convinced that I wanted to get involved in the project. That was practically the birth of a project that later developed into Your Art Beat. My tasks were of a conceptual, curatorial, editorial and organisational nature. At the end of 2016, the project was online and half a year later, in the summer of 2017, we founded the YAB association, which I run together with Matthias as chairperson of the board.

How would you describe the association in a few sentences?

Your Art Beat e.V. is a non-profit association that takes a holistic view on the artistic, cultural and creative scene and is dedicated to the protection, preservation and wide-ranging, multimedia presentation of a wide variety of arts. We see our mission in cultural education and in this respect call for participatory events and “creative activism”. We want to conduct discourses at eye level and dissolve static role assignments of knowledge instructor, recipient and producer. “Isn’t everybody a creator and curator?” Furthermore, Your Art Beat explores the potentials of modern media technologies and the intersections of the analogue and the digital. This is a motif that can be found in various facets of Your Art Beat.

What goals have you set yourselves as an association? What does Your Art Beat stand for?

We see our function primarily in promoting artists and supporting them in their activities. To this end, we offer various services, which we put together according to orientation and objectives, in order to be able to respond to individual circumstances and requirements.
Our goal or vision is to develop a new tool (Your Art Beat Gallery), which is to be understood as a kind of immersive and multimedia knowledge repository, in which collectively generated knowledge, artistic experiences or creative processes are saved and designed as multimedia contributions. Perhaps one can imagine it as a kind of virtual museum, composed of content from society and intended to offer participation, information and pleasure at the same time. Like a museum, this collective art and creative memory should be accessible to the public.

What exactly is the Your Art Beat Market?

The YAB Market is a digital trading place dedicated exclusively to the buying and selling of artworks, with a focus on digital and media art. Here we also find “the typical YAB motif” that I spoke of earlier: The intersection of the analogue and the digital.
So the question is: how can you produce a digital work haptically or transfer it into a physical medium?
This primarily goes hand in hand with the challenge that for each work a suitable physical medium has to be found that reflects both the visual dimensional depth and the content component (“the soul” of the work). To this end, we have experimented with different materials, such as mirror glass, (normal) glass and aluminium. This allows us to offer individual products in different design and price variants.
Furthermore, we offer additional services that can be used individually. We offer clients our knowledge and professional background, roughly speaking: content-related, legal, financial, as well as logistical matters concerning private art objects.

How do you select the artists?

Every year we launch an open call in which we look for new and special talents. The 5-10 artists who convinced us the most will be presented at the YAB Market. In addition, a selection of their works is offered for sale. Within 3-4 weeks, artists and creative professionals from all over the world have the opportunity to apply with their portfolio. At the last Open Calls we got great feedback from different countries. The decisions are usually very difficult but the result is always a very meticulous and fine selection of new talents’ works. As I said before, there is a focus on media and digital art. However, in recent years, we have also been able to convince artists from more “classical” disciplines, which means that the Market can offer a refreshing diversity for sale.

Digital media – are they more a part of the independent cultural scene or have they already entered the realm of state institutions?

Digital media have also arrived in institutional exhibition venues, but in practice they are not as mature as one would expect, or wish. Nevertheless, it’s nice to see that the use of digital media is also becoming established in “traditional” or “conservative” institutions. – Of course, it always depends on how the respective exhibition house is set up and oriented. For many exhibitions, media stations etc. are not even necessary, e.g. pure art exhibitions. Either way, anyone who wants to use media in exhibitions should choose them sensibly, plan them carefully and implement them in an overall functional way.
A big challenge that I personally perceive in my job at the moment is the topic of accessibility. Especially when it comes to electronic media, there are a lot of things to consider when implementing digital applications – be it of a design, content or physical nature. It is not easy to reconcile all of these and achieve a beautiful, functional end product. I am very pleased that more attention is being paid to the topic of accessibility in the exhibition context and that it is establishing itself as an elementary component in the exhibition business – yet there is still a lot to learn on all sides.

What makes it so exciting to experiment with digital media?

What is exciting about digital media is that digital formats give us the possibilities to present and convey content in the most diverse ways. In other words, for every content you want to convey, there are different ways of preparing and presenting it. Digital media expand this spectrum and offer us further options for presenting and ultimately conveying content in its own individual and ideal way.

What is planned for Art Karlsruhe, how will YourArtBeat present itself?

We are very pleased that Your Art Beat will be present at Art Karlsruhe this year, one of the largest art fairs in Germany, and that we will be able to showcase all its facets there. On this occasion, we have also come up with something special. In addition to the booth on the Museumsmeile in Karlsruhe, there will also be a -virtual- booth online. At the moment, Your Art Beat is still working on the development of a first prototype – so I don’t want to anticipate anything at this point.

What does the future of YourArtBeat look like? – What can we expect?

The next big Your Art Beat event will be, as already mentioned, Art Karlsruhe (21 – 24 May 2021) and in parallel – as a “digital event” – the virtual exhibition booth online. This will also be the kick-off for our next Open Call, in which we are looking for the “third generation” of YAB artists whose works we will exhibit and sell at the YAB Market. Another project I am very excited about is “Blickwinkel” by Sophia Vecchini [link from Blickwinkel post]. As part of this social project, Sophia has turned homeless people into artists and let them shoot their own motifs with disposable cameras during the winter. We will soon be exhibiting a selection of these at the YAB Market and will be able to offer them exclusively. The proceeds will go in full to the artists.

What do you think are the characteristics of a good exhibition?

A good exhibition must “seduce” and “incite” me, it must have the potential to carry me away, even if the subject does not interest me at all. A good exhibition teaches me something without the feeling of learning. It shows me new perspectives and perspectives that make me reflect and question my opinion. In the best case, I not only take away factual knowledge from an exhibition, but also become more “emotionally intelligent” and learn something about the society I live in and about myself. Not every type of exhibition or exhibition theme offers the opportunity to fully exploit these possibilities, but it should have this claim. Small things can have a big impact.

…where the digital becomes physical. Artists of the YOUR ART BEAT MARKET

-EXHIBITION – GROUP SHOW-

…where the digital becomes physical

is not only the moving motive behind the YOUR ART BEAT MARKET, now it also becomes an active program in a non-virtual form! For the first time, YOURARTBEAT is presenting its artists offline and exhibits the works that were previously only available for viewing and buying in the online shop.

In addition to a lovingly compiled and eclectic selection of original works, as well as specially produced art pieces, also a variety of materials are demonstrated with which we not only experiment and create alternative forms of artistic manifestation, but in particular transform the digital and media arts into physical shape.

Individual media contributions by the artists themselves not only open up new perspectives or give background information, they also enable a more personal encounter with the creators.

YOURARTBEAT look forward to an inspiring interplay of the polarizing textures of the digital-virtual and the analogue-physical, to the exploration of various materials and consistencies in combination with digital art and interactive media stations, creating personal approaches, highlighting and deepening specialized backgrounds.

During the two-week show, there will also be accompanying programs of virtual reality and audiovisual design.

 

Exhibition Opening: 14 Febuary 2019 – 7 PM

Duration: 15 to 28 Febuary 2019

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday: 4 to 8 PM // Saturday: 1 to 6 PM

KUN$TW€RK – Eine Fachtagung

EMPFEHLUNG: KUN$TW€RK. Das Werk? oder sein Wert? – Eine Fachtagung

Die Tagung thematisiert die zunehmende Verschmelzung der Begriffe des KunstWERKs und KunstWERTs und hinterfragt die zunehmende Maßlosigkeit im KunstMARKT.

 

Im Rahmen dreier Themenschwerpunkte wollen wir mit Beteiligten verschiedenster Disziplinen diskutieren und versuchen zu verstehen, was die reziproke Beziehung zwischen Kunstobjekten und ihren zugeschriebenen Werten beeinflusst. In einem zunehmend konzentrierter werdenden Fokus beschäftigt sich die Tagung mit der Kommerzialisierung von Kunst, dem speziellen Fall Berlins auf dem Kunstmarkt und der Rolle von Museen beim Kauf und Verkauf von Kunstobjekten.

Um differenzierte Einblicke zu erhalten und einen dynamischen Austausch zu generieren gliedert sich das Programm in drei Blöcke mit Impulsvorträgen, Podiumsdiskussionen und offenen Diskussionen mit dem Publikum. Ziel ist es, den Teilnehmenden einen Raum für eine Sensibilisierung und kritische Auseinandersetzung mit diesem polarisierendem Thema zu bieten.

 

Hierbei wird die Berlinische Galerie den idealen Ausgangspunkt bilden, da sie sowohl KunstWERKE als auch KunstWERTE vermittelt. Bei KUN$TW€RK handelt es sich um ein Projekt der Masterstudierenden (HTW Berlin) aus dem Bereich “Museumsmanagement und -kommunikation”.

Hier findet Ihr mehr zum Programm und denReferierenden:

Dear community,

After another successful year of YOUR ART BEAT we want to inform you about the latest news, activities and results.

In addition to the revision of our website, also the online shop of YOURARTBEAT went online: the YOUR ART BEAT MARKET.

Together with the artists we have put together a great selection that can be printed on qualitative and unique materials by aid of our new professional partner GLASTRIX.

But the YOUR ART BEAT assortment will not only be shown exclusively online – after all, we are planning an exhibition for the beginning of next year, in which we want to exhibit both the works and their unique effect due to the special materiality! – But more information will follow soon.

Until then, we are pleased to welcome you online to our market on www.your-art-beat-market.myshopify.com

Furthermore, this year we produced three short videos that give newcomers a good overview of our various tools and resources. The new videos for the blog, the association and the shop can be seen on both youtube and vimeo so just click through!

In addition, we would like to draw your attention to our Xmas contest, which runs until December 23rd. Find more information here or on Facebook.

We look forward to hearing from you about new ideas and projects and hope to come together again at the exhibition next year! Until then we wish you a nice winter time and a happy new year!

Best regards, YOUR ART BEAT TEAM

Virtual/Real – Digital/Analog – Intangible/Physical

———— Filed under: Allgemein ⁄⁄ analog ⁄⁄ Art ⁄⁄ Digital ⁄⁄ Market ⁄⁄ real ⁄⁄ Uncategorized ⁄⁄ Virtual Reality

Author:
Publ. 08.23.2018

THIS ARTICLE IS ABOUT THE JUXTAPOSITION

– of VIRTUAL and REAL – of DIGITAL and ANALOG – of INTANGIBLE and PHYSICAL –

Honestly, I am not sure if this is a confrontation or a steady transformation process – Maybe both… On the one hand, the growing technologization and the general digitalization is leading us to an ongoing abstraction of our world.

For example, money: Once upon a time, people were trading with items or gold. Gold became a bundle of money, the banknote became a paper check and finally, we use PayPal and pay with bitcoin – a currency that only exists on the screen. Books are replaced by a kindle, records are transformed into an mp3 file and friendship is only defined by the connection via facebook. How desirable is that?

 

Meanwhile, I mostly see in this a polarity that is increasing in radicalism and become more and more extremeand so often I am just thinking: Hello guys! Don’t you see that your property and ownership is an illusion .?

Augmented and virtual reality is just the beginning. It really gets creepy when you are on the phone and not sure if there is a human being or a computer software at the other end of the line. For example, the google assistant – this intelligence is not only reacting to you like Siri, it laughs, it changes mood and sound of the voice, it even makes human noises in its talking breaks like „mhh“ or „aha“…

X X X

I think the phenomenon of digitalization is especially interesting in the field of the arts.

Museums and cultural institutions digitalize their collections and thereby following two goals. On the one hand, they want to create new access to arts and culture and use diverse ways to catch people. In addition to the intention of education and mediation, digitalization of artifacts and cultural heritage allows better and more sustainable preservation – works are kept for eternity and „the problem“ of transcience seems to be solved.

But does transcience not also implicates the specialty of things, the individual nature of moments – might be even beautiful?…but that is another topic, so back to art and digitality!

Of course, technology brings benefits in terms of preservation, on the other side it can also devalue arts and offer a basis to disfigure something wonderful and valuable. I don’t know how you feel, but for me, every time I see a digital image of the Mona-Lisa with a distorted or exchanged face, something dies in me.

But then it is also said that just haptic works are „real“ works. Everything that is digital has no consistency – thus no value – thus it can not be sold in the big auction houses. But creating digital art pieces also emerges out of a craft, skill or talent.

Especially in the more traditional and conventional fields, this new and modern art form is not taken seriously and the digital and media arts are clearly undervalued, although they create new potential and promote artistic expressions of individual creativity.

YOURARTBEAT has recognized the aesthetics behind digital arts and even put a focus on it.

The new YOUR ART BEAT MARKET is a brand new online shop that especially gives the Digital Arts a haptic medium and transforms the Virtual into something real: A place where the digital becomes physical. It is about finding physical media that can reflect both the dimensional depth of the image and the inner depth, its “soul”

To ensure this, YOURARTBEAT experimented with a variety of materials and made a selection that is able to meet the just mentioned aspects. In addition, they serve solutions concerning different tastes and design variations but also can address different price categories without loosing on a qualitative level. Therefore, YOURARTBEAT  is offering the digital artworks in the following materials: Glass – Aluminium – Lightboxes – and of course usual Fine Art Paper… Especially glass is an awesome material – maybe because it can imitate a similar texture as a screen.

So we see: also digital things can be transformed into something real, something analog and physical. This whole topic is really strange and can be seen from many perspectives. There are positive as well as negative aspects.

X X X

Anyway, it feels like I’ll probably have to accept that we live in a world where your reputation depends on your virtual representation on the web, where you pay food with bitcoin and Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa has the face of Angela Merkel…

Digitization, Virtuality and, Intangibleness – Does it mean that you can’t lose things anymore Or is it implicating that you have never even owned them?

X X X

From the beginning, it was clear that this article will raise more questions than give answers…

So what do you think?
