Daniel Stubenvoll – Guest-Posts

KFAK,K – Kunstfenster für aktuelle Kunst, Kassel

is a micro-outdoors-exhibition gallery with an international program run by four people who came to Kassel to study at Kunsthochschule Kassel or to work for documenta 13. Since 2013 we are showing site-specific works. The size of the Gallery room is 30x40x8cm but we also like to use the space surrounding the window for more performative ideas. The Fenster is located at Track 1 of an old train station and open 24 hours a day. We don’t have a power source except for batteries.

For every exhibition, we are trying to come up with a special piece of advertising (eg.: screenprinted pieces of wood, stitched fabric, etc). It serves as an edition and can be collected at local bars and institutions.

Of course, we are open to ideas for exhibitions or collaborations with other off-locations.

Illness as metaphor

September 26th, 2014Author: Daniel Stubenvoll

Today, I would like to make you aware about a project that is going on in Hamburg at the moment.

“The international project ILLNESS AS METAPHOR. MADNESS IN THE GARDEN OF THE SPECIES is devoted to questions of normativity and deviation. With formats such as a symposium, a film series, exhibitions, performances and various works in public spaces, the project explores the ever-increasing internal and external pressure to keep one’s psyche, body (“Be full of energy!”) and soul (“Be creative!”) in constant optimal working order. Worshiped with virtually religious reverence, health is stylized as a social fetish, while on the other hand everything that departs from the path of – seemingly autonomous – ceaseless creativity is pathologized.

Neues Europa und Halit Yozgat

September 26th, 2014Author: Daniel Stubenvoll

Dear People,

I am happy to have a chance to present some content this week as a guest blogger for der greif. The first post will be about two good friends and their projects.

‘New Europe (Neues Europa)’ by Christina Werner is a self-published book with 100 pages about right-winged tendencies in european politics and society. There are parts of speeches of politicians in the book, mostly crossed out. She is showing faces, gestures and mimics of public figures that are associated with right wing politics. Additionally pictures are presented of crime scenes where right wing attacks have taken place. The book is assembled together from different media (newspapers, TV, Internet and her own photos).
