Saturday September 17, as a parallel event to the 12th Istanbul biennial, iaspis is organizing Disclosure – exhibition as discourse as disco, a four-hour exhibition ( 8pm – midnight) unfolding in the nightclub Dogzstar as evening turns into night. Setting out to simultaneously construct and deconstruct an exhibition situation, the site of the nightclub is used as an inverted mirror image of the white cube. The participating artists – Malin Arnell + KOEFF, Carl Palm, Hinrich Sachs, Studio SM and Oni Ayhun + Mar Ritt – contribute with work that address the question of the desire to make public through exhibiting, each using language, objects, movement, graphics or sound to interact with the choreography and politics of the situation. The dramaturgy of the evening moves from a reflection on the standardization of desire production through globalised formats for cultural expression such as international life-style magazines, nightclubs and contemporary art biennials, to more dissonant acts of exhibitionist disclosure.
Travelogue as Allegory: Artist’s Book as a Modern Form of the Production of Desire, a conclusion of a workshop organized by the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm will be exhibited at the Exhibition space of the Royal Institute of Art on the 4th floor of the Konstakademien building, entrance Jakobsgatan 27, Stockholm between 5-20 March 2011. Travelogue as Allegory reflects upon the connection between travelling and the artistic impulse of publishing and showing in the form of an exhibition. The choice of display is adressing both the issue of the freely circulating, ’travelling’ medium of the book, as well as its potential for use. Furthermore the connecting lines between the different publicly accessible, physical locations of books will be made visible: Two bookshops and two specialized libraries in Stockholm will display their book selections on the topic as an integral part of the exhibition. The exhibition features works by Ansel Adams, Lothar Baumgarten, Ulla von Brandenburg, Hussein Chalayan, Mariolijn Dijkman, Marie-Louise Ekman, Love Enqvist, Katja Eydel, Hamish Fulton, Goldin+Senneby, Martin Jacobsen, Gerry Johansson, Aglaia Konrad, Selma Lagerlöf, Carl von Linné, Rita McBride, Meriç Algün Ringborg, Shahrzad, Stephen Shore, Simon Starling, Jonathan Swift, Aby Warburg, Christopher Williams.
