Where the digital becomes physical: Galerie Salon Halit Art in Berlin-Kreuzberg presented artists of YOUR ART BEAT, February 14 through 28, 2019
The group exhibition displayed a selection of artworks of some of YOUR ART BEAT’s unique and versatile international artists. For the prints, different materials were used such as glass and aluminium, but also FineArt Paper.
The visual artist Lita Poliakova (Life Is Torturing Awesome) portrays mental and physical transfiguration and recycles paper agents in order to catalyse the novelty. Her digital collages were printed on glass. She also presented a video on the creation of her work.

Dryden Roesch is an artist and graphic designer from Edmonton, Canada. Most of his recent work depicts architectural environments in vibrant and surreal ways to create an imagined (and sometimes disorienting) sense of place.

Sonia Bensouda is exploring the notions of time and space. She is an Interior Architect and Collage artist. Through digital collage and photography, she intends to explore the notions of Time and Space in the Urban environment. Her digital collages with old photography are printed on FineArt Paper.

Natalia Poniatowska is swinging between the digital and analogue photography, still and moving image. Project White is her investigation into the notion of absence of colour. She wanted to investigate what happens when we take out the colour of food. She painted the fruits white and they became completely new objects that are no longer associated with food and taste. She wants to make others notice how beautiful our senses are.

The London-based photographer Imogen Davis believes that photography is used to capture moments of peoples’ lives, moments that would otherwise be lost in our memories forever. For MY BREATH she learnt how to blow her own glass, making physical recreations of her breath that now have memories of their own. The MY BREATH series I-X was printed on glass.

Christoph Kühl’s works are almost exclusively collages, i.e. they are made of painted paper by using various techniques. The viewer is taken on a journey through three-dimensional spaces. Christoph’s collages are the projection surface of these sensational sites. Found image pieces are put together to convey new impressions.

Renate Marschner (1953-1990) was an artist from Lower Saxony and worked as a painter and broadcasting author in Berlin, Karlsruhe, and Switzerland. She has displayed her works in Berlin, Heidelberg, and New York. Her works deal with the issue of getting used to understanding things we don’t see.

For Zsolt Gyarmati, Art is Confrontation. The objective of his art is some sort of status report. Art should make people conscious of unconscious things. He showed the video DIOXINDAUER in Berlin.

Selma Köran (video) and Jonathan Rosenberg (music) have created an audiovisual dialogue with Renate Marschner that was shown for the first time. It is based on Renate Marschner’s drawing SPERRUNG (BLOCKING), oil chalk on school board lacquer. Selma Köran made a stop motion film with knead and Jonathan set it to music.

Lita, Dryden, and Christoph attended the opening of the exhibition. Thank you for this.

…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

Akiko Nakayama is a Japanese painter. She felt that her past paintings were dead, so she started Alive Painting by combining the energy of movement and the vibrance of colours. She uses a multitude of kitchen basters loaded with paint and water to add, mix, tilt, blow and add all sorts of extraneous effects to her paints, recording and projecting it all onto a large screen. The result is a fascinating show of organic movements. In recent years, she has also added sound as another dimension to her work, and has collaborated with different musicians in live performances.

On November 4, 2018 she performed at THE KÜHLSPOT SOCIAL CLUB with Uproot, an electroacoustic music group (curator Kriton Beyer). The trio works with the use of both the natural sounds of the acoustic instruments as well as with preparation of these instruments, the use of objects and extended techniques.

It is always inspiring to visit the KÜHLSPOT SOCIAL CLUB. The ambience is very private, and performers and audience get in touch and discuss music, and art and life.

Virtual/Real – Digital/Analog – Intangible/Physical

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?

Memory and memories

———— Filed under: Allgemein

Author:

The pleasant experience or its opposite are the backbone of our memory, the connection of our episodic memory with our semantic memory.

Do I remember my first visit to a museum? It was in New York City in 1976, at the Museum of Modern Art. What do I remember? The impressive collection of modern and contemporary art in a fantastic building with a beautiful sculpture garden.

A painting by Mark Rothko, Magenta, Black, Green on Orange, painted in 1949. The painting shows his strict attention to detail, composition, depth, balance, color, and scale.

However, was I there or did I internalize stories of a friend who told me about his visit to the museum that made me think I was there myself?

How does the memory actually work?

Roughly, there are three sections of memory: perception memory, short-term memory and long-term memory. All information is initially stored in the perception memory and at the same time, the brain decides what to assign to the short-term memory and what to ignore. People are actually not able to store or process everything. They need to distinguish. The short-term memory is the working memory where all information is processed. Here, information remains for less than a minute. When people get older, their short-term memory becomes more susceptible. Short-term memory determines which information is fed into long-term memory. Whether the pieces of information are actually embedded there and retraceable depends on the codes they have been provided with. The long-term memory is dependent on information being sufficiently coded, either by adherent emotions or by special learning techniques. Nothing is lost from the long-term memory; forgetting is just a failure to retrieve content from memory. Therefore, stored data must be searched for, since it is usually not immediately available.

However, commemoration can be tricky. Because when we remember, we form fragments that we have experienced at different times and places into recollection or something that feels like recollection. Moreover, every time we remember something, when we dig out memory content, we modify it again. By the mood we’re in right then, by new information we didn’t have then. This is like a file that is modified repeatedly, and only the latest version is available. Therefore, we may have false memories, or there may be details in it that are not right. The memory is flexible and cannot objectively reflect the past, but adapts to the present identity of a contemporary witness.

So it becomes clear that a strong distinction has to be made between personal memories and reality, since our remembrance may be pure fiction, fantasy and perhaps a dream.

“In Search of Lost Time” is a novel about time, about forgetting and remembering.

How can one escape the incessant elapsing of time? Proust’s answer: Only by remembering the panorama of the past in special moments, for example by enjoying the famous Madeleine or the scent of lilac. These are moments of sheer beauty, great sensuality and pure happiness.

Back to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Rothko’s painting has burned itself into my memory as an image; in fact, I did see it there.

Jörg Gimmler (* 1963), Master student of Georg Baselitz, combines aspects of Concrete Art and Minimal Art into large-format compositions, which are at the same time analytically precise and ecstatical. They place the viewer in front of a structure that deals with the movement of painterly abstraction itself. The artist calls this process “multiple positioning”, in which similar formal elements in oil and acrylic paint form suggestive structures that, as visual architectures, disorient rather than shelter the viewer.
