sonata dawn radia #239 morsonata + radia #40 dead by dawn
a sonata in two movements.
both rather dark.
however, the first one is take from live and about the living:
"Morsonata is the radia edit of a hour long live radio show produced by Mobile Radio for the FON festival in Barrow-in-Furness, England. With Barrow being home to Europe's biggest submarine shed and neighbouring Lake District having hosted Kurt Schwitters for the last years of his life we decided to combine these two influences. Schwitters' Ursonate performed in morse code by one of Barrow's retired submariners is the underlying thread to the show that includes live music and field recordings by FON artists in residence Haco, Susan Matthews, Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann."
the second one, composed by tom wallace, deals with the dead, with
"clinical reports of people (mainly young drug abusers) who die whilst in hospital. The reading of their unfortunate medical histories is underscored with an electronic music composition made from hospital noises. The piece has been played once on Resonance fm, but was hidden in a larger programme due to the sensitiity of the theme." [T.W.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
haco, susan matthews, and mobile radio (knut aufermann and sarah washington) for their dark soata from barrow-in-furness;
tom wallace and resonance fm london for taking us on a trip with the dead;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
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.
VIATICO (viatico arte per i bambini)
VIATICO (viatico arte per i bambini | viatico arte for children) was my contribution to the third part of the exhibition project "VIATICO DI ARTE E CRITICA", that opened wednesday, the 1st of march 2000 at the CHANGE studio d'arte contemporanea / associazione culturale project room at Rome, Italy.
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".
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…".
