Artificial Hells

Chapter 2

Artificial Hells: The Historic Avant-garde

 

12.07.2022 – 12.09.2022

 

*See buttons below for all up to date episodes*

 

To reflect on the current state of so-called ‘immaterial practices’, Galerie (an immaterial art gallery) proposes to start with remembering a book––Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells. Back in 2012, this essay proposed a historical and theoretical critique of ‘participatory art’, also known as “social practice”, by challenging the emancipatory claims proposed by these projects.

 

Over 11 episodes, each corresponding to a chapter, Galerie will read aloud Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells (with the kind agreement of the author). So, lean back out there in the summer country. Every week we will share a new chapter, and whether you are at the seaside, in the mountains or working for the money to keep up with the inflation––we’ve got you covered with last year’s critique.

Shedhalle is currently under construction for the new Protozone, so we’re opening the back door for a video screening of “Hardbreakes”:

 

All humans know it: wishing for something that in the end does not bring happiness at all. Be it in love, with plans for the future or in the search for solutions to problems – longing can also bring pain.

 

Inspired by Lauren Berlant’s book “Cruel Optimisim”, people in Wollishofen were asked about their unfulfilled wishes and how they deal with heartbreak. The conversations can be discovered in the video, which is published here.

In short

Long Night of the Museums, Performance by Byungseo Yoo & Video-Screening by Dominique Koch

Please buy your tickets online via https://langenacht-zuerich.ch/ or register for free to participate in the cooking via mail@shedhalle.ch

 

The effects of climate change as well as of war are impacting not only the worldwide supply with fossil fuels but also very basic food supply, especially in the global south. Proto-Club3 responds to the current crisis by bringing together two artistic perspectives on the complex question of how to treat and preserve food as our basic resource of survival.

Queer
Trust
Protozone8

In short

QUEER TRUST is an attitude that draws from and relies on the in-between. It has shaped the work at Shedhalle as a space for process-based art since 2020 and is also the basis of Protozone8. The exhibition shows artistic works and ways of working that trust in relationships and processes beyond fixed attributions. The participating artists share intimate, vulnerable, open, and courageous artwork. In doing so, they question (gender) identities as well as artistic, scientific, and social traditions and classifications.

Opening times:

Tarek Lakhrissi
BEAST!

In short

This performance

“…explores bestiality as a philosophical and political concept by drawing on the stigma that historically frames queers and PoC as monstrous. Through read- ings of my recent romantic/radical poems accompanied by the lyrical vocals
of Makeda Monet and the electronic music of Victor da Silva. BEAST! explores utopian queer passions, rituals for lost ones, dark corners to protect oneself in, erotic dreams, and… you’ll see. All the poems are from my last poetry book LE SANG! (BLOOD!) published by Lafayette Anticipations.”

The Institute for embodied creative practices

In short

‘The Institute for embodied creative practices’ was hosted at Shedhalle by Isabelle Lewis from 3-6 of November during Protozone8 – Queer Trust.
We are grateful for the collaboration with Joseph Baan, Nina Emge, Izidora I LETHE, Juliette Uzor, Tyra Wigg, HGB Leipzig, HSLU Luzern, ZHdK Zurich and many more international art schools.
The Institute for Embodied Creative Practices is an ambulatory corpus of particular concerns and the sensorial methodologies for addressing them founded by artist and choreographer Isabel Lewis.

Lewis (*1981, Santo Domingo) is a US artist with Dominican roots. She studied literature, dance and philosophy and is now active in theater, dance and music. Her work expanded the field of contemporary art to include the format of Occasions. With persistent experimentation and research methods that emerge from bodily experiences, Lewis creates alternative forms of sociality between human and non-human actors. The artist’s body of work to date includes the formats Occurrences, Arrangements, Activations, Expanded Viewings, Sensory Parcours, as well as workshops, listening sessions, and lecture performances. The focus of her fundamentally collaborative practice is on affective bodily experiences that engage all the senses.

Becoming Justin Bieber

In short

Sunny Pfalzer was hosting their ‘Becoming Justin Bieber’ Workshop, a somatic dance karaoke gathering, during Zurich Art Weekend at Shedhalle!
Thank you for everybody who joined. Together we discovered how the choreographic gestures of pop cultural music videos felt in our bodies. Resisting through slow-motion awkwardness, we all became our own versions of Justin Bieber & Co. ♪

Protozone9 WEAK•END•OPERA

In short

with Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak und Nicholas Grafia

 

Shedhalle brings together three artists for their first major institutional collaboration in Switzerland. Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak, and Nicholas Grafia, friends who come from very different backgrounds, will spend a two-week-residency-period at Shedhalle. Together they will develop a spatial installation with their drawings, paintings, sculptural and video works.

 

And they will work on a new performance that will be presented on 16th and 17th of December, exploring the possibilities of experimental and political theatre. With references to absurdist performance and humorous play, they focus on social reality. They draw on narratives that are derived from socially stigmatized individuals and their bodily histories, but also their resilience and resistance.
