Ruth Anderwald: Der Taumel – eine Ressource?, lecture in German at Forum 20:17, Zukunftslabor der Jugendarbeit.9–10 October, 2017Merano, Italy
For my graduation work at Ruhr-University Bochum I try to visualize how an invisible, chaotic and disturbing phenomenon like dizziness may become visible for an audience.
The project for Haus der Geschichte Österreich (House of Austrian History) encompasses a photo series and a series of videos. Following the construction process for the new museums’ space in the historical backdrop of Neue Burg, the former Emperor’s quarters.
It is fear – not anxiety – that makes me dizzy these days.
Five arts-based research projcets taking place at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna will be presented and discussed. Kerstin Mey from University of Westminster and member of the Austria Science Board will give the keynote at the end of the day.
Ruth Anderwald and Leonhard Grond have accompanied the construction site of the museum for over a year and a half and have developed a photo and video series that addressed the transformation process.
The workshop will shed new light on disorientation and on how film artists throughout history use (optical) disorientation and confusion as a paradigm in their work. What can be gained by losing one’s grip, by simply letting go? What pictures arise with dizziness?
