Symposium zur Rolle der Künstler, Theatermacher, Musiker, Filmemacher im Kolumbianischen Konflikt.
„Über die Notwendigkeiten und Möglichkeiten künstlerischer Interventionen“
Mittwoch, 7. Februar 2018
in der Zeit von 10:00-23:00 Uhr
in der AULA der KHM, Filzengraben 2a/b
Die KHM veranstaltet in Zusammenarbeit mit der UNAL, Partneruniversität in Bogota, Kolumbien, ein Symposium zur Rolle der Künstler und Filmemacher, mit Fragen nach deren gesellschaftlicher Verantwortung und den Möglichkeiten von Interventionen in einem komplexen gesellschaftlichen Drama vor dem Hintergrund imperialistischer Geschichte, Globalisierung, Narration und aktueller nationaler und internationaler Politik.
Wie steht es um den bewaffneten Konflikt in Kolumbien?
Kann der heutige Umgang miteinander der am jahrzehntelangen Konflikt Beteiligten als Blaupause für zahlreiche andere große bewaffnete Konflikte weltweit herhalten?
Das Symposium POST-KONFLIKT soll Vorträge, Screenings, Performances und Installationen zusammenbringen, um einen Raum zur Diskussion zu schaffen.
Mit Gästen aus der Kunstfakultät der Universidad Nacional de Colombia / Bogotá und weiteren Referent*Innen wird somit die Komplexität dieser spannenden und schwierigen Zeit vor und nach den ersten erfolgreichen Friedensverhandlungen durchleuchtet.
10.00 – 19.00 Symposium

VERDE is an documentary project in the tradition of expanded cinema focused on three natural landscapes of Colombia: the Sasardí nature reserve located in the Darien, Sumapaz and San José del Guaviare. All three places have special environmental conditions, and different natural characteristics and ecosystems.
They are distant from each other in the colombian geography, they are different from the biological perspective but also have elements in common: they are lungs of the planet, water factories with incalculable potential, and all are places of great fragility that have been contaminated by the socio-political conflict that has taken place in the country.
GREEN project is also the result of an audiovisual and inter-medial creation laboratory – with a strong emphasis on improvisation – of a group of artists from different institutions and disciplines. With the participation of: Nelson Vergara, Roberto Garcia Piedrahita, Javier Olarte, Ricardo Arias, Rodrigo Restrepo and Luis Negron van Grieken

Giordano Bruno marks with his work „The shadow of the Ideas“ a key work in the tradition of the art of the memory. He proposes a philosophy that unites the combinatorial of knowledge (attached to the ideas of Ramon Lull of the twelfth century) with the force of the imaginary, thus combining determinism with the unknown and unpredictable of the cosmos, the soul and its relation to knowledge. Citing Eduardo Vinatea’s introduction of the 2009 edition of Umbris Idearum, as a discursive architecture of the soul.
For this installation the bunker K101 of Cologne, Ehrenfeld is transformed into a theater of memory, operating the spaces as if of the imaginary palace
of Giordano Bruno was treated, where each ray of light, each color and each stone was placed by the same Giordano Bruno. The accumulated wisdom of Umbris Idearum grows as an autonomous organism, transforms, interferes, modulates and makes each see more difficult to decipher.
The relationship between place, literature, thought is where on stage, creating a texture that reflects the complexity of woven reality.
The sound is composed by Ali Chakav and during one night a sound performance of 6 hours was performed with the participation of Ali Chakav (electronics), Rahel Pötsch (Cello) and Axel Pulgar (electronic) at the Bunker K101 at the Körnerstr. in Cologne.

Founded in 2004 by Susanna Schoenberg at the Cologne Academy of Media Arts, Re-active platform is also the name of an artistic production formula for letting different conceptual, material-specific and technical design approaches work together free from a hierarchical model.
In this case the installation at the Contemporary Art Fair reacts on sound from space, by vibrating the foil and the laser drawing in a feedback circuit of observation and monitoring acoustical and optical signals.
Computer vision custom software, camera, microphone, motors, structure, reflecting foil, custom software for laser drawings, laser-beam.

In Collaboration with Susanna Schönberg and JiHyun Park.
COMPUTER AIDED INSTALLATION
re-active platform is about the logic and aesthetics of systems; circuits, signals and displays are represented as objects, images and sites, while the phenomena of the real seem to be nothing more than just mere coincidence.
Re-Active Platform, initiated by Susanna Schoenberg in 2004, embodies concepts, works, tests and exchange between students and other art and technology competencies that temporarily and repeatedly turned into site and condition themselves.

This Concept consists in 5 site specific installations conceived for the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei MOCA Studio in Taipei.
Coincidence Setup is dedicated to the idea of coincidence — and the question of how to understand what is coincidence and what not. The fact that two events can take place exactly in the same time is sometimes translated into the belief that there is no reason for such contemporaneity, If not some kind of chance.
A so-called coincidence circuit is made of 2 Geiger counters, which is supposed to detect particles from cosmic showers — so-called muons. The experimental set-up of a coincidence circuit is connected to a modular display made by 2 groups of vertical louvers, reaching from ceiling to floor.
A computer controlled motor is mounted to each louver to rotate it around its axis. The regular kinetic choreography will be disturbed by events supposed to be related to cosmic showers detected by the coincidence circuit. The movements of the louvers are visible also as shadows — a kind of circuit of 2nd degree, where the physical is dematerialized into the shape of a projection.
One of the main aims of this part of the installation complex is to focus the tension between the representation of pre-set events, and the possibility
of interruptions in their representation— so that observers can suddenly imagine to have misunderstood or misallocated the object of their observation.
