“Real Estate”, Performative Intervention, Kunstraum Noe, Vienna
http://www.theoriesinmind.net/socialglitch/english/GeraldStraub.html

REAL ESTATE conjectures a potential real estate crisis and investigates social disparities – in particular, the development of housing values, their background in the market economy, and the corresponding consequences. As opposed to cards with “Do you want to sell your car?,” cards with lines like “Do you want to sell your apartment/penthouse/tenement house? Trusted real estate provider pays unbureaucratically and promptly” are attached to luxury cars in prime class areas. A performative tour with property visits (e.g. through “golden quarters”, oligarch suites, etc.)

Einladung Kunstgastgeber 012_Page_2

KÖR Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Wien (Art in Public Space, Vienna) and wohnpartner – Das Nachbarschafts-Service im Wiener Gemeindebau (Residential Partners – The Vienna Municipal Tenement Neighborhood Services) approached tenants from a chosen public housing site and asked them whether they would like to accommodate works of art in their homes as part of the art project Art Host: Municipal Tenements.
Eleven tenants from four different buildings in Vienna’s fifth district were selected, each of whom was brought together with one of eleven designated artists. In October 2012, the flats were made accessible for guided tours over ten days, which offered a possibility to get to know the hosts and the artists and to gain an insight into the process of their collaboration. A wide range of artistic engagements had emerged, influenced and inspired by the cooperative and associative spirit of the project. The living quarters turned into zones of transition between private and public space and offered insights into a wide range of individual passions.

How does instancy / immediacy work in politics and what are the consequences of these momentary actualisations – acting as a creator of immediate emotions rather than building relevant tracks for a not so close future? – a life performative intervention.

SUPERGLUE
is an artistic research project by Gerald Nestler and Gerald Straub
Science works on surpassing its respective limits, researching where there is still no exact cartography. Nestler and Straub are interested in “the impossible”, the “terra incognita” beyond the prevailing scientific horizon that can only be grasped intuitively or prognostically and is hence on the far side of actual scientific claims.
Nestler and Straub are collecting material on the impossible and are appropriating it to trace moments of irrationality, impossibility, inspiration, the working together of heterogenic moments and intuitive approaches. By re-calibrating the fluid notions of scientific knowledge at the frontier of what reaches beyond them, they ask: Is there a production of knowledge, which develops out of the impossible? Which enactments are generated by the impossible?
In SUPERGLUE, Straub und Nestler generate an artistic research focus in progress – between informal and formal references.
