join miss.gunst on the playground and enjoy a set of games playing with the rules of art!
ad sanctos, apud ecclesiam
"ad sanctos, apud ecclesiam. eine predigt zur kunst" ("ad sanctos, apud eccesiam. a sermon on art") was released in 2000 as a lecture/performance and later transformed into a hypertext format.
the subject of the sermon are the parallels between the perception (and production) of "the saint" and the perception (and production) of "the artist" in society.
encyclopedia of stolen ideas
Who owns ideas? Can ideas be owned – just like material things? Obviously, the notion of "ownership" is quite problematic in this context.
The "encyclopedia of stolen ideas" is an online platform to reflect upon these issues.
"panem@circenses" (or in short: p@c) deals with the operating system(s) of art in the society. it is conceived as an online infobase and learning platform. the basic structure delivers a set of terms stemming from the roman circus (as a site created for the amusement of the plebs), each of which is set in parallel to one part of the system of contemporary art.
with [homepage] miss.gunst followed an invitation by haegue yang to participate in her exhibition project "triviality. dilettantism as artistic competence" ("trivialität; dilettantismus als künstlerische kompetenz"), a show situated in te meso studios for which the artist had asked colleagues and friends from different fields of profession for contributions on the issue of "self-display".
ART IS BEAUTIFUL!
ART IS BEAUTIFUL! was a leaflet released in occasion of the Old Boys Networking Workshop, part of the programme "suck my code. Performing cyberfeminism" curated in course of the 8th International Performance Conference "networking / meeting", Frankfurt am Main, 13.05.- 16.05.1999.
Wie man den Kindern die Kunst erklärt | Help your child to understand art
"Wie man den Kindern die Kunst erklärt" is a small brochure. As its (sub-)title, "helfen sie ihrem kind, die kunst zu verstehen" ("Help your child to understand art"), might already suggest, the text itself is conceived as a kind of advice for parents who are themselves artists, critics, curators, collectors or otherwise involved in the field of arts. Maybe it is even useful for those planning to visit art exhibitions together with their children, or find themselves by accident in a situtation confronted with a work of art, while their children start to ask "mom… dad, can you tell me…".
