    SKGAL richten in ihren künstlerischen Arbeiten die Aufmerksamkeit auf Orte, Dokumente und Gegenstände, die von den großen Erzählungen der Geschichtsschreibung wenig beachtet werden. Dazu recherchieren sie in unterschiedlichen Archiven: dem Archiv der Vereinigung bildender Künstlerinnen* Österreichs, dem Bildarchiv der Arbeiter-Zeitung und im STICHWORT – dem Archiv der Frauen- & Lesbenbewegung.

    In their artistic works, SKGAL focus on places, documents, and objects that have received little attention from the grand narratives of historiography. Their research has examined different archives including: the archive of the Austrian Association of Women* Artists (VBKÖ), the image archive of the Arbeiter-Zeitung, and STICHWORT – the Archives of the Women’s & Lesbian’s Movement.

    Lecture by Mai Ling
    Paulusplatz 5, Seminarraum 2. Stock
    1030 Wien

    2023 March 9 / 14:00

    The artist collective and association Mai Ling is a platform to share experiences, struggles, and practices of anti-racism, sexism, and homophobia especially against Asian FLINT*. “Mai Ling,” a fictional figure scripted by a German comedian in 1979, embodies a submissive hybrid stereotype of an Asian woman. Mai Ling re-narrates and reclaims “Mai Ling” with collective voices and multi-layered identities.

    Curating before, during (and after) war: Ukrainian case.

    Lecture by Lizaveta German
    Paulusplatz 5, Seminarraum 2. Stock
    1030 Wien

    2022 October 20 / 14:00

    Curating today can be many things, as proved by a good deal of literature on the subject.

    In her professional practice, Kyiv-based, temporary Vienna-relocated Lizaveta German has tested many of those “manies”. Curating is an adventure, Lizaveta believes. Especially if you dare to choose a free-lancer’s path in Ukraine. In her statement, Lizaveta will speak about her most recent experience of producing new exhibitions, including the Ukrainian pavilion at the 59th International Exhibition–La Biennale di Venezia, and of different ways to support Ukrainian artists in times of war. Curating comes from latin curare, which means to care. It seems like a good time to restore the true meaning of this word.

    Lange Momente, scheinbar beiläufig Entdecktes und Situationen zwischen Fakten und Fiktionen zu Alltag, geopolitischem Geschehen und Kunst sind oft Ausgangspunkt der künstlerischen wie kuratorischen Projekte von Klaus Schafler. Gleichzeitig arbeitet er in wechselnden Rollen, zwischen eigener künstlerischer Praxis, in temporären Kollektiven, und seit September 2022 auch als der Leiter einer Kunstinstitution, der Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Wien.

In simultaneity he works in changing roles, between his own artistic practice, in temporary collectives, and since September 2022 also as the director of an art institution, the Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna.
