COPS

Corporation of people's situations – COPS

Using a language of form characterised by the provisional, functionality and future promise, the Corporation of people’s situations (COPS) has installed a spatial situation at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof comprising materials and elements taken from construction sites, as well as equipment and components from the world of sport and leisure activities. Scaffolding, sheets of foil, belts and mats are deployed and adapted for different use in gymnastic exercises, as meeting places and as infrastructure for an open archive. In the sense of a mobile, modular multipurpose toolbox, which can be shifted around and reconfigured into various different parkours, the installation becomes the framework and starting point for several COPS-initiated situations.

RUTH BUCHANAN
Or, a camera Or, a building Or, a screen

Ruth Buchanan explores in performances, installations, sculptures, publications and films – which often include language as material – the conditions under which the processing of cultural production takes place, questioning the implicit agreements of the handling, organization, and presentation of such material and its respective formats. Or, a camera Or, a building Or, a screen focuses on the auditory and is made up of three sound works and an appendix combined with graphic, sculptural, and performative elements. Buchanan's linguistic operations are condensed text-based variations of the previously presented constituent parts of this cycle of work: a performance, an exhibition, and a film.

KASIA FUDAKOWSKI
Stoikerinnen (female stoics)

After "Enthusiastinnen" (Enthusiasts, 2012) and "Pessimistinnen" (Pessimists, 2013), Kasia Fudakowski continues her preoccupation with mind-sets between philosophy and everyday life. "Stoikerinnen" can be seen as 'comedy on dub' and is Fudakowski's fan-nod to the manifold audio-arts of hamburgian postpunk humourisms, as well as late 90's british radio-creations such as blue jam.

MELVIN MOTI
Hyperspace

In his project, the "Hyperspace“ Dutch artist Melvin Moti approaches the idea of multi-dimensional and reduced spaces. His 24-minute-long 35mm film "The eightfold dot" (2013) presents an abstract narrative that begins with the point, continues with the line then progresses to the square and the cube, all the way to the hypercube, which acts as form and symbol of the fourth dimension.
