Stories of Work and Coercion: Scientific Contributions Depicted in Illustrations

Campus of the University of Vienna, 30 August – 3 September 2021

exhibition display: wood, reinforcement fabric, bast thread, cotton weight bags, 260 x 100 x 120 cm, 2021

The exhibition ‘Stories of Work and Coercion: Scientific Contributions Depicted in Illustrations’ intends to specifically point out the potential of the text-image relation for a multimedia historiography by introducing the illustrations of Dariia Kuzmych, Monika Lang and Tim Robinson. The visuals follow the scenarios developed by Anamarija Batista and Corinna Peres, based on academic texts by anthropologists and historians that were presented at the conference “Reconceptualising Wage Labour” 2020 in Budapest. The exhibition display, a rotating wooden drum, was developed by Anna Hofbauer.

Drink tea! Eat more fruit! Wash your hands!

Helping each other, discussing ideas, maybe developing a collective practice or working individually as well as preparing food and maintaining everyday life in the quarry are common ground.

Analogous to what they are aiming for in their course in the Untersberg quarry within the International Summeracademy Salzburg, Cäcilia Brown, Anna Hofbauer and Mikkel Holm Torp will approach the exhibition at Stadtgalerie Lehen in a “surf and turf” way of collaboration and combination – of rocks and waves.

Press Release

“Transfers” shows works that mark different forms of displacement.

These include the transfer of material to film (Hannes Böck) or the moment of transferring production into an institutional framework (Philipp Fleischmann). Anna Hofbauer shifts the built architectural space into relief-like structures and thus negotiates the shift from three-dimensional to two-dimensional space. Miae Son, in turn, characterizes the process of taking over space through the body, while Dorit Margreiter’s work deals with the return of digital recordings into analog objects. Dóra Maurer’s work shows an abstract geometric drawing that transfers the medium into the material, thus making visible the shift from design to execution and documentation (of space).
