Coming together over their common interest in the politics of aesthetic practices, the two art spaces will present themselves in a common event. The presentation includes among others, the second publication by Gitte Bohr Surface and Superficiality on the ideology of the surface, as well as site-specific interventions curated by Liebig12 under the title: Rekursionen der Macht – on how to exit the loop.
The publication Oberfläche und Oberflächlichkeit is the material result of a series of talks and discussions held at Gitte Bohr – Club für Kunst und politisches Denken during the last three years. It contains contributions by all the participants in those events and a couple more. The aim of the project is to analyse the relationship between surfaces and superficiality in our contemporary society. To the events upon which this publication is based, Gitte Bohr invited many dear guests; artists, curators, theorists, activists. We, and the always changing, illustrious audience, listened to them excidedly and discussed with them cheerfully and heatedly.
