A project on the subject rhythm in visual arts.

Not to be confined by the greatest, yet to be contained within the smallest is a definition, which declared the enterprise of the artists group Rhythm Section.

The substantive trait, which linked the artists of the group Rhythm Section in their works is the commitment to a hyper reflexivity in dealing with the rhythm, not as a compulsion, but as an original constant.

The clear handling of the rhythm allows an endless variety of individual variations.

Rhythm Section is a platform for artists, who are interested in an exchange on the subject rhythm in the visual arts.

RHYTHM SECTION AMBIGUOUS UNAMBIGUOUS

Grauzone, Veronika Wenger 2020, 60 x 45 cm, tape on paper

The rhythm of the movement over time has to be in the line, by itself. Rhythm interrupts, distinguishes and determines the line and the drawing.

The drawing represents the visible and uncovers imagination, ideas, reflections and intuitions. Drawing can come in many forms; it can be documentation, information or art. But it is always communication.

An omnipresence and invisibility of a phenomenon of our time is the digital – not the information age per se, but its novelty and revolutionary power in all areas of life up to art and art production. Like air and water, the digital is now noticed by its absence rather than its presence. Computers are a comprehensive but invisible part of our everyday life.

In our exhibition Ambiguous Unambiguous we wanted to presents both analogue and digital works by the artists and juxtaposes the respective positions. Not to be confined by the greatest, yet to be contained within the smallest is a definition, which declared the enterprise of the artists group Rhythm Section. The substantive trait, which linked the artists of the group Rhythm Section in their works is the commitment to a hyper reflexivity in dealing with the rhythm, not as a compulsion, but as an original constant. The clear handling of the rhythm allows an endless variety of individual variations.
Thereby the exhibition deals with the topic of new, analogue-digital combinations.

The exhibition is curated by
DR. EZGI BAKÇAY (Istanbul)
DR. KARIN WIMMER (Munich)

Digital exhibition in public space:
Munich and Istanbul

Funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts; Munich Department of Culture; Ströer; MVG and Münchner Fenster; Istanbul municipality.
A digital exhibition project initiated by the Istanbul municipality, the Karşi Sanat Çalişmalari Art Center, the artist group Rhythm Section, and the Digital Art Space in Munich.
Due to the pandemic, exhibition venues are not allowed to hold openings and even have to remain closed. Exhibitions can not be presented and communicated. The distance between artists and viewers is more than ever. How can artists bring works closer to the public during the period of lockdown, when museums and exhibition halls are closed?
Digitization influences and changes daily life, relationships, works and even elections. Urban development is taking the form of a megamedium.
Smart city stands for intelligent networking within a city. Moving images are a trendy topic for media in public spaces. Moving images on public video screens offer the opportunity for effective communication with mobile audiences in passing. In istanbul, the metropolitan municipality currently operates more than 11000 public video systems. On Munich’s public transport system, a mix of editorial content and advertising is shown on 137 large screens at stations and directly in the subway and streetcar vehicles on more than 1,700 screens. The infotainment program Münchner Fenster shown in the vehicles alone reaches hundreds of thousands of passengers every week. The Münchner Fenster is produced by mcrud GmbH, the large screens are operated by Ströer.
In view of numerous requests from artists in Munich and Istanbul, the curators Dr. Karin Wimmer (Digital Art Space, Munich), Dr. Ezgi Bakçay (Karşi Sanat Çalişmalari Art Center, Istanbul) and the artist group Rhythm Section decided to establish a digital gallery.
RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR is a digital gallery in public space that gives artists the opportunity to be seen and invites viewers to participate in the development of digital art. Art opens itself to the public and even to the public that does not come to the museum.
RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR is a sustainable project, because no resources are consumed, the project uses the existing screens of the public urban space.
The digital gallery RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR will make art visible to visitors by displaying digitally created works by the artists on screens in the public urban space of Munich and Istanbul over a period of one month.

PASSAGE: A GATHERING OF COLLECTIVES 


Merkezkaç Art Collective is organizing a meeting of collectives after the “Encounters” exhibition that it co-operated with Space for Culture. With the principle of “unity is strength”, it brings together the art collectives and initiatives operating in various cities in Turkey and abroad. The collectives that come together in the project discuss the social issues such as identity, power, ecology, alienation, migration together with the current problems of contemporary art and try to make suggestions for possible solutions.

The exhibition aims to work on and determine the changes that collectives create through their own art practices in the centre and periphery (off-center) and aims to revive the dialogue environment by discussing the problems of the collectives together. It is among the goals of the project to shed light on the problems of the new collectives and to provide new perspectives to the young artist candidates.

An omnipresence and invisibility of a phenomenon of our time is the digital – not the information age per se, but its novelty and revolutionary power in all areas of life up to art and art production. Like air and water, the digital is now noticed by its absence rather than its presence. Computers are a comprehensive but invisible part of our everyday life.

In our exhibition ‚ambiguous unambiguous‘ we wanted to presents both analogue and digital works by the artists and juxtaposes the respective positions. Not to be confined by the greatest, yet to be contained within the smallest is a definition, which declared the enterprise of the artists group Rhythm Section. The substantive trait, which linked the artists of the group Rhythm Section in their works is the commitment to a hyper reflexivity in dealing with the rhythm, not as a compulsion, but as an original constant. The clear handling of the rhythm allows an endless variety of individual variations.
Thereby the exhibition deals with the topic of new, analogue-digital combinations.

What does the advent of digital mean for art production? What does it mean when “new media”, which were celebrated for several decades in special festivals and institutions, have lost innovation? Is this a sustainable effect whose potential cannot yet be assessed? Which genre-spanning methods can be extracted from the field of “new media” and transferred into thinking figures that reach beyond it?

Due to the current situation and the circumstances of these times, we have decided to show one digital work of each artist in the digital show of the fair 2020 and have renounced the analog counterpart in form of a digital image. Art is always an expression of its time and the environment in which it is created. Instead of the planned juxtaposition of the two types of work, we invite you now more than ever to explore the very different digital means, materials, forms and formats used by the artists. We hope to be able to present the juxtaposition of both analogue and digital at the fair in 2021.

Now in its eighth consecutive year, Platforms Project is the international show that indicatively charts the art currently produced through collective initiatives by young artists on the international scene as they join forces to seek answers to contemporary artistic questions.

Platforms Project establishes a new approach to art viewing via Platforms Project Net, a web-based art fair.

We stay at home but we continue to create and bring together the voices of the independent art scene, demonstrating the power of art and technology.

The Platforms Project Net will enable the art-loving public to access the artists’ groups and their works via a digital exhibition. Viewers can try a new experience by visiting the Platforms Project website for 15 days, from 14 to 31 May 2020 at www.platformsproject.com
