15.02.2013 – 20Uhr – Les Reines Prochaines – Festsaal Kreuzberg Berlin –

Les Reines Prochaines – Syrup Of Life
– das neue Live-Programm zum neuen Album BLUT –

Sie sind inkognito hier und verwandeln den süssen Saft des Lebens in Klänge und Gesten. Michèle Fuchs, Fränzi Madörin, Muda Mathis und Sus Zwick wissen um die Verwandlung, Verhüllung und Entblössung – und sind ganz sich selbst.Sie spielen mit Worten und werfen Bilder von Suffragetten, Witwen, von grauen Eminenzen und bunten Emanzen. Ja – aber keine Angst, das ist der historische Teil der Funny Feminists All Star Show. Ansonsten kommt ein frecher Geist zu Besuch und selbstverständlich auch Frau Professor Doktor Doktor aus der Universität von Massachusetts. Les Reines Prochaines singen Lieder, blasen, zupfen, schlagen auf ihren Instrumenten: Bass, Klarinette Trompete, Saxophon, Tasten und Glockenspiel. Sie stehen auf minimalistischen, ungehobelten Sound und bedienen sich ungeniert aus allem was ihr Herz berührt. So klingen stilistische Färbungen aus Tango, Cabaret, Balkan, Mariachi, Piano Lounge, Klezmer und Brecht/Weil in ihren Darbietungen an.Les Reines Prochaines besingen die grossen Stränge des Lebens: Schlaf, Liebe, Sex, die Windungen so mancher Biografie und fragen sich: Wo ist der Hund? Warum ist der Kreisel rund? Warum ist es nur so warm im Bett? Ist die Farbe Grau ein Synonym für rauschende Schönheit? Wo hin fliesst all das Monatsblut? Aus welchen Teilen besteht der Mensch? Verwöhnt du mich-  so verwöhn ich dich.LRP glauben an die Poesie, an den magischen Realismus und das Phantastische im Kleinen.

Als Benefizaktion für bildwechsel hamburg und zu unserem und eurem Amusement präsentieren bildwechsel, Galerie Broll und Evi, Nic & C. Performance-Miniaturen mit
Glanz und Feuer, einen dichten und fulminanten Nummernabend.
In alter Frische kultivieren wir die Gastfreundschaft, laden Künstler*_Innen
zu Kurzauftritten ein und komponieren daraus eine rauschende Performance-Nacht.
Den Ausdrucksmitteln sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Dabei interessiert uns weniger 
„die Brillanz des Virtuosen“ als vielmehr „der Glanz der eigenwilligen Autorenschatf“.
 
Wir zeigen zeitlose Formate für freie Menschen. Ein Treffpunkt der älteren Jugend
und blutjunger Transvestiten, wo wirkliche Freund*_Innen sich treffen, mit Anregungen
und überlieferten Attraktionen für alle Geschlechter. Das bietet viel Anlass zu Maskerade
und schwülen Gefühlen.
Kurz gesagt ein Abend für ein Publikum, das starken Tubak verträgt.

Mit dabei Cat with Hat /// LiLo /// Barbara Loreck /// Janine Eisenächer ///

DINGS
Ein kriminal-philosophisches-cinemathographisches Singspiel
Eine Leiche ohne Oberschenkel. Ein verdächtiges Wurstbrot. Eine
ungewöhnlich zerfetzte Krawatte. Drei Verdächtige: die Witwe, die
Köchin, der Gärtner. Die Witwe verschwindet, der Gärtner auch, dafür
taucht Dings auf: Ein Fall für Les Reines Prochaines!

Michèle Fuchs, Fränzi Madörin, Muda Mathis und Sus Zwick, verstärkt
durch die ehemaligen Reines-Mitglieder Barbara Naegelin und Sibylle
Hauert und den Schlagzeuger David Kerman, bringen zusammen mit
Nathalie Percillier ein Kriminalstück mit musikalischen, filmischen
und performativen Mittel auf die Bühne.

Dem Film liegt eine stringente Geschichte, ein klassischer
Kriminalplot zu Grunde. Die Erzählung wird auf ihre reine Mechanik
reduziert und dient als (Knochen-)Gerüst für die opulente Lyrik und
Musik der Performance. Die Songs, Rezitate, Sprachimprovisationen,
Körper/Gestengedichte und Tänze sind das Fleisch der Aufführung. Die
Lieder bewegen sich auf einer Metaebene und werfen philosophische
Fragen auf zu: Identität, Liebe und Hass, Geld, Arbeit, Gedächtnis,
Schweigen, Protokoll, Wahnsinn, Sünde und Schuld und dem Nichts.

Und wer ist Dings?

Statement from Bildwechsel Glasgow on the censorship of work at Glasgow’s Museum of Modern Art

You may have heard that Culture and Sport Glasgow (the body responsible for art galleries, libraries and sports centres in Glasgow) and the Gallery of Modern Art have recently decided not to show a number of artworks that they had planned to exhibit as part of the sh[Out] LGBT arts programme. In particular, this has affected the work of Spanish artist Dani Marti and his residency with Gay Mens’ Health.

Three pieces of Dani’s work were withdrawn by CSG – effectively censored. These works were “talking heads” type documentaries where gay men revealed their HIV status and discussed issues around their lives and loves. They were to be shown on a few Thursday evenings after 5.30pm at GOMA. Other parts of the programme have been re-scheduled and doubt has been cast over whether other planned exhibits will be allowed to go ahead.

Culture and Sport Glasgow have stated that one of the reasons it decided to withdraw Dani’s work was to protect the artists, the sh[Out] programme and the LGBT community as a whole from negative press and attacks from other groups that would “negate both the artistic and societal endeavour” of the programme.

This completely misses the point that sh[Out], a “contemporary art and human rights” programme was supposed to address such issues, not shy away from them. The artists and organisations involved in the sh[Out] programme are fully entitled and much better qualified to make these kind of decisions for themselves. We are the ones who have been dealing with homophobia and negative and violent reactions all of our lives. These experiences inform our art/work and are what led some of us to become involved in the sh[Out] programme in the first place, either as exhibitors or as members of the sh[Out] Advisory Group.


My own organisation, Bildwechsel Glasgow, has been well supported by staff within GoMA and recognises that the staff there have been put in a very difficult position. However, it is has been made clear to the sh[Out] Advisory Board that some elected Glasgow councillors have reservations about sh[Out] which they have made clear to CSG staff. This, combined with recent Daily Mail outrage over the ”defaced Bible” work, has directly contributed to CSG’s decision to censor, re-schedule and put on hold vital works of art by LGBT artists.

We are deeply concerned that the on-going, in-depth and media-sensitive scrutiny of artworks planned for the sh[Out] exhibition may be inherently homophobic, as no other artists or exhibitions at GoMA have been treated in this way.

We demand that Culture and Sport Glasgow and the Gallery of Modern Art re-instate Dani Marti’s censored work immediately. They must also re-affirm their commitment to show all the works originally planned as part of the sh[Out] programme, without attempting to make them less visible by re-scheduling or re-locating them.

Culture and Sport Glasgow has a responsibility to promote, explore and celebrate the art and culture of the great diversity of peoples that live in Glasgow and beyond. If LGBT people have the courage to live their own lives out and proud in the face of hatred and homophobia and under threat of marginalisation and violence, surely we have the right to expect courage and vision from decision-makers and elected representatives.

I would like to ask you to e-mail, phone or write to your own Councillors to make them aware of the situation and let them know your views.

Everyone in Glasgow now has three or four councillors that cover the Ward they live in. You can find yours and their contact details by entering your postcode here:

glasgow.gov.uk/en/YourCouncil/Council_Committees/Councillors/

If you want to, you could also contact your Members of the Scottish Parliament, whose details are at http://www.writetothem.com/ or write to the Director, Mark O’Neill, Head of Arts and Museums, at the Gallery of Modern Art, Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow, G1 3AH (You can use the online form at glasgowmuseums.com/emailform.cfm?staffgroupid=24&staffid=72). GoMA has received many letters from organised right-wing groups in opposition to sh[Out] artworks. We think it is important that they begin to hear some other voices.

You can keep up to date on the campaign here shoutadvisorygroup.blogspot.com.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Best wishes,

Permanent Conference of Artistic Resources/ 17th – 25th September/ Glasgow

17th – 25th September/ Glasgow
Permanent Conference of Artistic Resources/
(aka Europe Supports Artists) 

This will be the fourth meeting of the Permanent Conference (Hamburg in 2007, Warsaw beginning of 2008, Basel October 2008) and this year our theme is

Experiments In Living – (Artist) Communities.
 
——————————————– 

1. Overview: The Permanent Conference of Artistic Resources
2. Experiments in Living: 17th – 25th September, Glasgow 2009

——————————————– 

1. Overview: The Permanent Conference of Artistic Resources

The overriding theme of the Permanent Conference is: how we survive as artists, and how and what we can share with one another to make a difference to our situations individually and collectively.

Aims of the Permanent Conference:
The ‘permanent conference of artistic resources’ seeks to explore the following questions:
* what is the situation for (women) artists in different countries
* what is the situation for visiting (women) artists
* what are the different possibilities (women) artists can take advantage of in their countries/cities etc
* what support systems are there
* what kind of things can you invent to help you
* what is the ‚idea’ of a (woman) artist
* how do we survive as artists
One of the central themes of the project concerns different and alternative social and economic systems, and we propose to reflect some of these in the organisation of the project itself.

Three parts…
1. to get to know one another and to share what we know – through meetings, workshops, visits and exchanges, exploring the themes outlined above amongst ourselves and with other artists in our own communities, and on our travels.
2. to produce a booklet – „the (women) artists’ emergency tourism guide“: a special tourist guide: the booklet will describe what advantages (economic or otherwise) are available for women artists in each country e.g. if you make a scandal in poland you will become a well-known artist, if you live in Sweden for 5 years you can get financial support from the state, european artists can apply for social security money in the UK, in Bremen you can get „artist-money“ if you are registered there for three years.
3. to develop a website: to record and to build up our knowledge about each other’s situations, the situation of (women) artists in different countries, how easy it is for other women artists to visit / live / work in each country, what support there is, what alternatives exist, and also about the definitions and ideas of what it is to be an artist in those countries.

——————————————– 

2. Experiments in Living
17th – 25th September, Glasgow 2009

This is the fourth meeting of the Permanent Conference and we will invite women from various artist-run groups and projects to join us to explore ideas around “experiments in living”.  The aim of the meeting is to come up with different responses, ideas, imaginings, utopias, and solutions   around the topic of organisational structures: what can we learn from one another and what can we learn together.

The meeting will be hosted by Fourwalls Women’s Housing Cooperative, 35 Carnarvon Street, Glasgow.  This will be the main base for the meeting and for some of the events.

17th September

6pm Qunst.mag exhibition opening
Qunst.mag is an e-zine created by members of Bildwechsel and the contributing artists (www.qunst.net) The theme of the issue 4 will be ‘experiments in living’ and we have put a call out for work around realities, histories, utopias and imaginings, communities and groups, homes and buildings, networks and connections. The resulting magazine will be available online but will also form an exhibition in Fourwalls during the Permanent Conference.

 

The programme will also include:

Visits: to other artist-run projects / women artists working locally e.g. Caravan Residencies, Trongate 103, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow Women’s Library, individual women artists (to be confirmed)

Workshops:
Experiments with video (e.g. video interviews, explorations of the experiments in living theme, documention of the meeting);
Build it yourself! practical energy making workshop 
:-)
drawing and writing meetings

Meetings:
with other (women) artists – to network, build new structures, to archive work, discuss new projects, to make interviews around the main topic of the Permanent Conference i.e. how do we survive, what can we share.

Cafe Culture:
Transforming Fourwalls into an imagined bohemian space for meeting, eating, discussing, debating and showing work – the Permanent Conference will install itself throughout the building and use the space as an open public venue on evenings during the meeting dates.  Fourwalls tenants will be integrally involved in this transformation.  Exploring different economic structures will also be part of the production of these evenings e.g. each evening will take a different approach to producing food for others (bring and share, invite someone, get what you can for free)

3. Bildwechsel

Bildwechsel was set up in 1979 as an umbrella organisation for women in media, culture and art.  Based in Hamburg it acts as a platform and as an infrastructure which women/ lesbian/ transgender/ queer artists, filmmakers, theorists, cultural activists etc can tap into to support and develop their own work, projects and ideas, to find out about the work of others, make connections, develop new initiatives and build up archival collections that represent their work and that of others.

Bildwechsel aims to present a panoramic view of the work of women artists, especially of those working over the last 30 years.

We have ’agents’ in various cities collecting materials for the archives, reporting on what they see, making connections, organising projects.  The archives aim to be international in scope and dynamic in their content and the work of the agents is important in this respect.  Building on these connections with other artists and projects we often travel to other cities with the Archive Bus, putting on events, screenings, collecting materials for the archive.

We are concerned with the concept of authorship and this interest informs the ways in which we work with artists, for example by providing a space where questions of authorship, being an artist, showing work etc can be explored and critiqued e.g. within Gallery Helga Broll (a project hosted by Bildwechsel in Hamburg and Kasko in Basel – www.galerie-broll.com)

Some of our current projects:

– Developing new structures that can help us to fund our work – the spaces we need to house the archives, our umbrella organisation and some of our projects.

– Storing, digitising, copying and winding the videos to preserve them

– Presenting video programmes of the first generation (japan standard1, u matic)

– “Mediamovements” – looking at the ways that the contents, meanings, and contexts of media representations have changed e.g. “generation gap”, an interview and performance project with women performance artists from the first generation of performance artists who began their work in the 1970s and 80s; “still lives and living pictures”, a project looking at the relation between video and performance.

– Organising activities / projects with our agents in other countries / elsewhere in Germany

– “Europe supports artists” – currently at www.europesupportsartists.wordpress.com

Bildwechsel is always looking for new connections – for new agents to keep us in touch with what is happening in their cities / countries; for artists / filmmakers to send us information about their work; for women to work with us on projects and events in their own spaces / places or with us in ours.

You can get more information about us on our website at www.bildwechsel.org
