Event on the occasion of the exhibition
16.07.2008 (6:30 pm)
The space of the Gallery will be transformed in a contemporary cabinet; like in a magic box, charcoal drawings and tempera paintings will float. Tirelli conceived his project as a selfportrait in which real and mental forms get mixed like it used to happen in the cabinets at the time of Humanism, where among the exhibited objects and the owner, that usually lived this space, occured a sort of transfert.
The geometrical forms of Tirelli are meant as instruments to start, with the use of imagery, an acknowledgement of realty.

Krüger & Pardeller, Leander Schwazer, Karl Unterfrauner
curated by Sabine Gamper
Opening: 11.07.08 (7 pm)
Different artistic positions will be demonstrated, that deal with external, spatial and constructive parameters. This gives rise to questions of the forms and structures that define our organic as well as constructed cultural surroundings.
Which strategies can we use to heighten our perception? Which forms determine our natural and as well as socialised environment? How can we peer behind the curtain of the ordinary? And which processes help us to define internal and external positions and to situate proximity and distance? And what kind of dynamic is set in motion by which forms?
Realistic Landscapes – Space Image Movement in the Sign of Arts Without Borders
24.7.2008, 7 pm
Relation with Franck Hofmann, art critic, Berlin, and presentation of videos by Werner Gasser, artist, Merano/Berlin
How can realism as strategy contribute to a characterization of the landscape after the concept of Nature – in both senses of the word? And on the other hand, what does it mean for our conception of realism if we restructure it in regard to an urbanised and humanized landscape?

curated by Sabine Gamper
Opening: 12.09.08 (7 pm)
This different artistic situations are dealing with psychic and deeply human parameters. This gives rise to questions regarding the social integration of the individual in the realities of contemporary life.Who are we? How do we move as individuals within a society? What processes make up our daily lives? How do we interact with other members of society? Which conflicts characterise our lives? What allows us to make sense of our surroundings?

Also, during the course of the exhibition, viewers will be able to consult the artist’s parasite editorial project “THE UNREADy,” and its latest intrusion into other magazines.

Two hit-men, Ben and Gus are waiting in a basement room for their assignment. Ben is the senior member of the team and is reading a newspaper when the action begins. Gus asks many questions about their job. Gus leaves the room to get a drink of water in the bathroom, and the dumbwaiter’s speaking tube whistles. Ben listens carefully – we gather from his replies that their victim has arrived and is on his way to the room…

Alles in Butter, exhibition of Design
You should not play with your food! Or should you?
We each have our very own eating habits. By living in a community, we have, in the main, adapted ourselves to certain standards and rules that we call gastronomic culture, or more simply our eating habits. Students of the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, supervised by designer and lecturer Steffen Kaz, will be discussing the topic of eating and drinking, linked to our habits and standards, in order to analyse and unravel them in their work in an expert manner.
This is an exhibition of photographs on the topic of archives that have been produced in a workshop with Paolo Riolzi, photographer and lecturer at the faculty, together with a group of students. Words, pictures and sounds shape our archives and memory. By a process of cross-breeding, texts and pictures increase the opportunity of access to all kinds of information and make it difficult for us to determine the places where traces of our past and present have been recorded. Books, CDs, mobile phones, the Internet, films, sensors, cassettes, and video cameras record and store this history.

c/o MMM Firmian
Via Castel Firmiano 53, BOZEN/BOLZANO
Coreography: Hofesh Shechter Dance Company
Cult was commissioned by The Place Prize 2004, where it went on to win the ‘Audience award’ prize. An implosive, electric piece that combines virtuose physicality with aesthetic finesse. Fragments is Shechter’s debut work, an elegant duet that flows between delicate and intense moments. The evening also includes Uprising, described as “pure pleasure”. Seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with their edgy energy, bonding and sparring, making up and falling out. A highly charged short work with a propulsive, percussive score, Uprising leaves audiences buzzing.

Robert Pan – solo show
25.09. – 25.10.2008
Opening: 25.09.2008 (6 pm)
Robert Pan’s works find their expressive form through the light, the transparency and above all the colours. His works are born out of a complex proceeding of additions. The paintings are made up of various layers of resin, comprising different pigments of colour, that melt to a chromatic whole through a careful work of finishing. The manifold stratifications of coloured resin give rise to a shining whole, to enormously intense paintings, like visual fireworks that remind of the power of life, the strength and the cosmic energy.

21.06. – 25.07.2008
Respira – Daniela Chinellato
Performance: 16.07.2008 (7:45 pm)
RESPIRA (Breathing) is born from “crash test”, a performance that took place at the gallery in 2007, consisting of the creation of a great clay head and then its necessary violent destruction.
The present exhibition consists of a kind of archaeological dig where on the floor the broken clay pieces form the word RESPIRA. With time the word undergoes changes made by both the public that can buy the pieces and the performance featuring the collaboration of the students of the Bolzano Artistic High School who will intervene in this “dig” and transform it into something else.
Lost and found – Hubert Kostner
Opening: 19.09.2008 (7 pm)
In his mostly small sculptures and paintings, Hubert Kostner proceeds from the landscapes of his immediate environment and deviates from them in many different ways. The artist often takes photographs of found pieces of wood and combines them with en miniature architectonic elements to give the impression of mountain scenes with a hotel or a belvedere. Only a second glance reveals contrasts and ruptures. This ironic dimension may then induce the spectator o indulge in a critical dilemma.

Money eat soul
18.07.2008, 8 pm
Performance by Arnold Dall’O at Prati del Talvera – Bolzano
Money eat soul. It explains the value of money. Money that defines the value of the person. Money that decides the politic and the social statue. Money that develops the government and makes the government’s critics dumb. Money that decides our everyday life, money made of metal and that can not calm any hunger.

curated by Angelika Burtscher & Daniele Lupo
Opening: 16.05.2008 (7 pm)
The project “translating tradition” looks at the customs and traditions of the South Tyrol region. These are taken as the point of departure for investigating tradition as a vehicle for nonverbal communication tied to the here and now. “translating tradition” reflects on the customs and traditions of South Tyrol through a variety of creative forms of expression and positions, analyzes the symbolism and handing down of certain signs, and interprets them anew. South Tyrol with its unique history is the springboard for the project, international designers are its “interpreters,” casting their gaze from the outside onto the societal and social connections colouring the history of this region.

Summer Drafts is a series of workshops and events guided by international artists and theorists that, in collaboration with intercultural associations of Bolzano, develop organizational and participative formats. Common thread of the meetings is the constitution of informal spaces of aggregation: using a creative approach developed through non-representational art practices, Summer Drafts experiments forms of sociality which operates transversally to the different cultural identities of a specific territory.

Three days of performance at Lungomare Gallery: Performance, workshops, lectures
with Ana Borraho & João Galante, Yingmei Duan, Luigi Coppola & Loss Group
The performance weekend at the Lungomare Gallery proposes territories of observation and analysis of the contemporary performing language. “Participants, connected and in dependent” presents performances which have the shared interest in working on the “aesthetics of relations” and on audience participation, at times subtle and ironic, at times explicit and provocative. During the three days there will also be a meeting gathering experts, critics and artists to discuss and present different approaches to the performing arts and a training workshop led by Yingmei Duan and Luigi Coppola, aimed at the realization of a performance which will be presented as the closing event.
Peripheral Vision and collective Body
24. 05. – 21. 09. 2008
‘Peripheral vision and collective body’ discusses the question of the collective bodies in contemporary visual art considering the tight relationship with architecture and performance (dance in particular). Looking at how recent artistic proposals have been informed by the American avant-gardes from the post WW II period which themselves had activated some experimentation from the German, Polish and Russian milieu of the early XX Century.
The exhibition will bring together a selection of works, including film, performance, documents and texts from Meyerhold to contemporary art, which will explore the creation and the use of ‘the collective body’ as a critical strategy to question the legacy of our recent history.

Sanliurfa, i.e. Urfa, a town in the South-east of Anatolia, is the central theme of the artist Matti Braun’s installation (Berlin, 1968, lives and works in Cologne). Some archeologists consider Sanliurfa the cradle of civilization: Muslims and Jews venerate it as a holy city in which reputedly Abraham was born. The ‘Özurfa’ exhibition is dedicated to the sceneries and people connected to these myths without wanting to verify facts or create casual connections. The exhibition is organized by the Ludwig Museum of Köln in collaboration with Museion.

Words in place of images, diffused in public advertising spaces where they find themselves coexisting with the plethora of messages (advertising/informative, etc) that invade the visual horizon of the city. The intent is to distract the reader from his or her habitual urban landscape, structured as conceptual in its spatial organization. The purpose is to provoke an interruption, capture one’s attention, and divert the normal course of one’s perception of the everyday, introducing a creative and active environment.

The 160 m² exhibition space of the Galerie Prisma will become a suite for guests.
curated by Lisa Trockner
The artist Hubert Kostner has designed an art project specifically for the Manifesta-Tourism: the 160 m² exhibition area of the Galerie Prisma will become a suite for guests. Art tourists can book the suite, whose interior decoration will be designed and constructed by the artist, like a hotel room. It is an experiment in the interaction between art and patron, exhibition space and overnight accommodation, in which the art consumer is not just an observer, but also becomes an art product himself.
SYMBIOSIS – sculpture exhibition
07.07. – 31.10.2008
c/o Chamber of Commerce, Via Alto Adige 60, BOZEN/BOLZANO
curated by Helga von Aufschnaiter, Markus Gasser
Opening: 04.07.2008 (6 pm)
Contemporary art has found a temporary home in the new Chamber of Commerce HQ in Bolzano, a purist architectural skin in metal and glass: consciously positioned objects by regional artists occupy the generously-proportioned empty spaces. Thanks to this parasitic manner of staging the art the discrete interior decoration of the building envelope is interrupted, while compressed materiality and circumscribed vacant spaces are exposed to a new interrelationship.

Storyboard by: Ina Tartler
Opening: 26.09.2008 (8 pm)
The love-struck Count Almaviva ardently desires Susanne, the maid, who is about to marry a servant. The aim consists in managing to stop the dissolute count from achieving his goal using an astute plot in a succession of comic events. “Der tollste Tag”, written by the provocative Austrian playwright Peter Turrini, is the tragicomic revision of Beaumarchais’ “The Marriage of Figaro”. In this lively comedy, Peter Turrini reveals, through his unique and brilliant language, the action of the mechanisms of power within social and political life.
“Das Jahr magischen Denkens”, by Joan Didion
18.10.08 – 02.11.08 2008
Directed by: Carsten Bodinus,
Set designer: Nicolaus-Johannes Heyse,
Interpreted by: Cornelia Heyse
Storyboard by: Ina Tartler
Opening: 18.10.2008 (8 pm)
In “The year of magical thinking” the US writer Joan Didion, who has often dealt with social criticism, meditates on two unexpected turns of fate, by reprocessing in a very personal and yet objective and detached manner the death of two loved ones. The piece, written in 2005 as a biographical novel and later adapted for theatre in 2007, is a touching and at the same time philosophical narration about the power of love and the disruptive nature of death.

The artworks of Josef Rainer (photography and sculpture) and Wolfgang Stehle (video and installations) interact symbiotically, reinforcing each other, and picking up the thread of eachanother’s storyline. Developed independently of each other, the artwork seems at times to fill the convuted rooms of the gallery, at other times shrinking. They play with the room, trying to escare, before retreating – almost ashamedly – into a corner.

The Conductus Ensemble has been trying for years to achieve a new understanding of string music. Under the direction of Marcello Fera, and through his own compositions, it has developed a repertoire that cuts across different genres in a distinct and highly personal manner. The style examines, in strict dialectic, both past history and the present. With the Maninarco project the Conductus offers a synthesis of the new compositions for strings.

06.09.2008 – 4.10.2008
with Elettra Ranno
curated by Fabrizio Boggiano
Opening: 05.09.2008, 7 pm
A game that takes place in the dark, in silence. A breeze, hardly noticeable, catches fragments of light and freezes them onto the emulsion, forever. This, and much more too, is what comprises the photographic work of Elettra Rannos – an artist who uses this medium to create a unique and personal dream diary, and one that is latent with metamorphoses.
The Secrets of Geometry
11.10.2008 – 08.11.2008
with Barbara Deutschmann
Opening: 10.10.2008, (7 pm)
At first glance, the viewer sees constructivist pieces of concrete and natural stone: simple geometric shapes. Yet, upon closer observation, smooth casting surfaces appear within the rough materials. The varying depths and the different densities of the paraffin used create space and a surprising three-dimensional illusion. The dialogue that results from the combination of contrasting materials is not a provocative one; rather it is one of intimacy.

Discovering the special in the ordinary – this approach has been characterizing the extensive and complex works of Maik and Dirk Löbbert for roughly 25 years. With their place-specific interventions, they always react to the formal conditions of the respective exhibition site and its contents. For Merano arte, Maik and Dirk Löbbert will develop a multi-part, space-related work that abolishes the borders between art and reality, autonomous and space-related art, painting and sculpture.

“Nature Heals” is the subject of XONG 2008. The obviousness of an “intact” natural landscape makes it difficult for us to experience its qualities and to actively make use of them. By means of distance, irritation, and vision, the festival hopes to initiate a dialogue in which not only the mind, but also the soul and the spirit are inspired. The festival will provide the stage on which nature and its healing powers can be portrayed, reflected, and developed on different levels, in a variety of roles, in exciting scenes.
XONG 2008 offers: culture hikes, farm festivals, concerts, music in inns, celebrations in retirement homes, children’s workshops, and music workshops.

Art-and cultural creative individuals from Bruneck deal with the issues of social relevance roused by art and structural design. The settings of the performance are containers that will be used as studios, exhibition rooms and areas of reflection. Virtual as well as actual projects suggest the socio-cultural milieu. The containers do not only communicate with the local population but also with visitors from abroad. The containers show the outer and inner skin of creative and spiritual processes. They provide an experimental field acting as sandpit utopia, which allows changes of the reality.

The artist transforms the old railway bridge pier which was constructed in 1180 during the time of K&K, into a work of art by painting it with a special, glittery, golden colour. The “golden target” which was never stroke refers to the allied bomb attacks in 1944-1945. The culture is the conscience of the civilization. The industrial structure made of blocks of granite acts as the plastification of a chapter in our history and is therefore a “social plastic”.

Paul Albert Leitner is a detective of the abysses of folklore. Austria appears as a labyrinth of bounded and suppressed aggressions. The Austrian avoids all false optimism, his anthropology is sceptical, even deep black. It seems that his knowledge of mankind derives from introspection without illusion.

The metamorphosis happening during the firing, from soft clay to hard stone, becomes a process held in time, which has occurred in nature within millions of years, and can still be followed. The Anagama-Brennofen (oven) is the centre point of this project. This oven was built out of stone and clay in 1999 by the members of the Kunstverein “Kunstmyst”.
2 week symposium from 13th July. During the 25th – 30th August the actual work will be put into the oven. The burning of the products will take place in September.
