COAPPARATION (Teil 3) Atelierstipendien: 2021 - 2022

"If critical deconstructivist approaches emphasize the importance of language, text, discourse, and structure, performative arts feature works with the present body that simultaneously refers to more and exclusively to itself," writes Anngret Schultze with pointed contradiction. In her thealit project, text and body are to come into contact with each other and be exhibited in poetic form.

COAPPARATION* takes a new turn in November with fellow Hannah Wolf and her project on delivery services and the people who deliver goods. It's all about bodies that perform delivery services in the centers of cities.

To this end, she interprets the components of the art word COAPPARATION as a whole negatively, insofar as one "[ends up] in neoliberalism. The cooperation, participation in an enterprise for the purpose of increasing capital. [T]hen I think of flows of goods and those who move them. [...] On the assembly lines, the ports, trucks, transporters, and then just the bicycles. These bodies, the mediators, move through the urban space carrying the loads that become joy at the door of others. [...] [O]f course, one is not supposed to see the burden that goes into this activity. What goes is moved to the outside of the cities.

Alexandra Tatar has been following traces of her grandfather's work in Germany some 50 years ago and brings back new experiences, artistic analyses and results. Guided by the family interviews, she allows her paths to overlap with those of her grandfather, forming the contours of uncertain crossings. The shifts and gaps as found in her grandfather's recollections meet their critical and poetic reconstruction by the granddaughter's video work.

This interview is the first part of the project, Sorrow, at the Traffic Year by YeLa An.

Four Korean artists share their racist experiences and their thought of the double oppression as Asian women in Austria and Germany before and after COVID-19. Indeed, they narrate why they thematize Asian female identities and Asian bodies in their artistic works.

This project is supported by thealit Frauen.Kultur.Labor., BMKÖS, and Bildrecht.

YeLa An currently based in Vienna, Austria. She studied post-conceptual art with professor Marina Grzinic at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

_For many years, she has been creating artwork concerning the mass media's former images of women and how they reflect the current state of gender (in)equality. Besides, her interest lies in analyzing the present representation of Asian women within Asia in relation to the occidental gaze.
