Queering the Museum

On occasion of the Europride Vienna

In 2019, the Joint Ventures event series explores questions of good life and (co-) existence. What does community solidarity look like? How will we remain empowered to act even in troubled times? This program presents artistic projects and strategies around the topic of side income.

A forum was created for the purpose of these discussions, one in which artists and cultural workers, museum visitors and flaneurs, people interested and those committed, amateurs and professionals alike could exchange ideas and network. Four Saturdays this year will feature presentations, lectures, discussions, readings, and performances dedicated to current topics of community.

Each time, a local community project will be introduced or a local building group will present their project. In doing so, a specific format in which to experience the content and community will be created. A Friday evening program of selected films at the Blickle Kino will set the mood for topics subsequently presented throughout the day Saturday.

In her videos, which are only part of her practice as performer, musician, and theater maker, Sabine Marte tends to lead the viewer into unstable terrain. Her works are unsettling and uncanny because they tamper with the familiar and aesthetic conditions. The artist experiments with popular narratives, histories, and gender roles and appropriates clichés from horror films, science fiction, or melodrama and fractures them in a humorous and joyful manner. The institution of language as well is not short-changed in this queer practice, for with the help of fragmentation, repetition, and exaggeration, it too is broken down into its individual parts and properly questioned.

 

The screening at the Blickle Kino ranges from the I Would Like to Make a Horror Movie Sometime (1999), a reflection on media, to her latest work, No Beach Just Sand (2017), a brilliant production in which the capitalist motivational slogans of “to carry on” are met with exhausted opposition. Followed by a conversation with Sabine Marte.

Queering the Museum
 

Program at the Belvedere 21

Saturday, 8 June  2019 | 11 am to 6 pm

 

Event in English

The second program in the series Joint Ventures focuses on queer topics in museums. Que[e]rbau Vienna, a queer housing community, together with their groups Seestadt and Wildgarten present their joint building projects. The Viennese historian Andreas Brunner shows the queer side of Prince Eugene of Savoy. The London curator Clare Barlow talks about the exhibition Queer British Art 1861-1967, which she realized in 2017 for the Tate Britain in London. The Polish art historian and curator Paweł Leszkowicz presents his exhibition Ars Homo Erotica, which was shown at the Polish National Museum in Warsaw in 2010. Presentations of queer refugees and the re-staging of the performance Clever Gretel by artist Stefanie Seibold from 1999 conclude the program. During the lunch break, a guided tour of the exhibition Feuerstelle will offer a queer reading of Christian Ludwig Attersee's oeuvre.
