“MISPLACED WOMEN?” Installation is on the exhibit at the “What Makes Another World Possible?” Curated by Corina Apostol, at the Tallinn Art Hall, September 18—December 5, 2021.

In Exhibitions, News on October 30, 2021 at 1:52 pm

What Makes Another World Possible?” (18.09–05.12.2021) curated by Corina Apostol looks at socially engaged art in the last decade and the role of art in social and political struggles. The exhibited works provide an overview of how art has been used as a tool for shaping society in the last decade.

The exhibition includes works by: Alina Bliumis, Zach Blas, Chto Delat?, Vala T. Foltyn, Núria Güell, Sandra Kosorotova, Kristina Norman, Daniela Ortiz, Tanja Ostojić, Lia Perjovschi, Dan Perjovschi, Dushko Petrovich, Urmas Viik and Ala Younis.

Corina L. Apostol, the curator of the exhibition, remarks that when compiling the exhibition she was guided by the belief that artists contribute to some of the most crucial debates of our times and that their voices are significant in shaping society and imagining how it could be different. “The work of the artists in this exhibition brings together the various facets of art, activism and global politics,” she says. 

Corina L. Apostol is the co-author of Making Another World Possible (Routledge, Creative Time), which was published in 2019. Both the book and the exhibition examine ten global issues through the prism of socially engaged art projects, including: the militarisation of society, the proliferation of surveillance, entrenched economic inequalities, rising social movements, the displacement of peoples, cosmopolitics, anti-racism struggles, creative education in crisis, queerness and political expression, and new devices enabling political action.

“The global pandemic has only amplified many of these urgent issues, and interest in socially engaged art has grown: it has moved from the margins of the art world to being a central part of the discussion on contemporary art and politics,” Corina L. Apostol says.

On Wednesday, 27 October 6pm a panel discussion with the artists Dmitry Vilensky, Núria Güell and Tanja Ostojić in the exhibition “What Makes Another World Possible?” was organised, moderated by the exhibition curator Corina Apostol.

________________________________________________

Mis(s)placed Women? is an ongoing collaborative art project started in 2009, consisting of performances and performance art workshops, including contributions by over 170 individuals. Many of them are artists, mainly identifying themselves as women from diverse backgrounds. Within this project, we embody and enact some of everyday-life’s activities that thematize displacement, known to migrants, refugees, and the itinerant artists traveling the world to earn their living. Those performances deal with migration issues, power relations and vulnerability, particularly concerning the female and transgender bodies, an aspect that figured prominently in my art practice. With this project, on one side, we are investigating privilege by making a distinction between working mobility, forced or desired migration, and how arbitrary laws may apply, and on the other side, exploring diverse public spaces and the invisibility of certain groups within them. In the frame of this project, in which I apply feminist emancipatory methodologies of artistic and community practices, I conducted numerous workshops globally where the participants are selected by open call. Individual and group artworks and interventions are developed and produced in this frame. The development of collaboration within the group and forming of a community are very precious processes as well as the further communication with a wide audience that we meet on the streets, and targeted audiences in the venues where presentations, exhibitions and discussions take place.  (T. Ostojić)

Tanja Ostojić is exhibiting photos, stories, videos, signs and performance scores from the very rich “MIS(S)PLACED WOMEN?” participatory art project archives in the form of a multimedia installation.

I am grateful to all the participants of the Misplaced Women? project (2009-21) for generous contributions to the project and very pleased that all texts and videos have been translated and are exhibited in three languages: English, Russian and Estonian, and that the Misplaced Women? Installation has been set up so well. Huge thanks to Corina Apostol for her non compromising curation and to the fantastic stuff of the Tallin Art Hall (TAH). – Tanja Ostojić

Bu performanslar, Ostojić’in geçmiş birçok çalışmasında öne çıkan nitelikteki, hareket hâlinde olma ve özellikle de kadın bedeni üzerinden göç temaları ile güç ve kırılganlık ilişkilerini incelemeyi sürdürüyor.

Sanatçı ve Atölye Yürütücüsü Hakkında:

Tanja Ostojić 1972 yılında Yugoslavya’da dünyaya geldi. Disiplinlerarası çalışan performans sanatçısı. Uluslararası platformda kurumsal cinsiyet eleştirisi alanının öncülerinden olan sanatçı, toplumsal ve siyasal katılım temelli feminist sanat ve kamusal alanda sanat çalışmalarıyla tanınmaktadır. Sanatsal çalışmaları üst düzey teorik referanslar içermekte olup, çok sayıda kitap, dergi ve antolojide incelendi. The Guardian tarafından yakın zamanda Looking for a Husband with EU Passport (2000-05) çalışması ile 21. yüzyılın en iyi 25 sanatçısı arasına seçildi.

Ostojić, Sırbistan’da Belgrad Sanat Üniversitesi’nde Heykel, Fransa’da École Régionale des Beaux-Arts Nantes’ta Serbest Sanat öğrenimi gördü, Universität der Künste Berlin’de disiplinlerarası araştırmalar alanında Albert Einstein araştırma bursu kapsamında çalışmalarını sürdürdü (2012-14). Çeşitli bağışlar ve ödüller aldı; 1994’ten beri performansları ve sanat eserleri dünya çapında birçok önemli sanat mekanına ve festivale ulaştı. Eserleri önemli müze koleksiyonlarının bir parçasıdır, Avrupa ve Amerika çevresindeki akademik konferanslarda ve sanat üniversitelerinde konuşmalar, konferanslar, seminerler ve atölyeler vermiştir.

Atölye Hakkında:

Mis(s)placed Women? projesi, kamusal bir alanda bavul, poşet, el çantası ya da benzeri bir nesnenin içinin açılarak boşaltılmasını içerirken bu nesneler yoluyla geçici ve süreli göçmenlerin, evsizlerin, savaş ve doğal afet mültecilerinin günlük deneyimlerinde yaygın bir tema olan yerinden edilme hâlini temsil ediyor. Atölye, katılımcıları bu konularla ilişki kurdurarak, onları tartışmaya açmaya ve çeşitli kamusal alanlarda müdahalelerde bulunmaya teşvik etmeyi amaçlıyor.

Atölyenin ilk bölümü, bir araya gelme, bilgilendirme ve iletişim kurmayı içeriyor; bu sayede katılımcılar bireysel deneyimleri ile projenin amaçları hakkında birbirleriyle fikir alışverişinde bulunabiliyor.

İkinci bölüm sürecinde katılımcılar, İstanbul’un sokak, park ve istasyonlarında canlı performanslar ile müdahaleler gerçekleştirmeye teşvik edilip destekleniyor. Halka açık olan performanslarla  atölye süreci, profesyonel fotoğraf ve video ekibi tarafından belgelenecek.

Atölyenin dördüncü gününde, Beykoz Kundura’nın Sinema’sında atölye çalışmalarından kesitler izleyicilere sunulacak. Atölyenin tüm katılımcıları sunuma ve sonrasında gerçekleşecek olan söyleşiye etkin olarak katılmaya davetlidir.

Über die Künstlerin und Workshopleiterin:

Tanja Ostojić (*1972) ist eine renommierte, in Berlin lebende, in Jugoslawien geborene Performance- und interdisziplinäre Künstlerin, die auch in den Bereichen Forschung und Bildung tätig ist. Sie ist international bekannt als Pionierin der institutionellen Geschlechterkritik und der sozial und politisch engagierten feministischen Kunst im öffentlichen Raum, insbesondere im Kontext von Migrations- und Genderfragen. Ihre Kunstwerke haben einen hohen theoretischen Referenzgrad und wurden in zahlreichen Büchern, Zeitschriften und Anthologien besprochen und veröffentlicht. Der British Guardian bezeichnete Ostojić kürzlich als eine der 25 besten Künstler des 21. Jahrhunderts und würdigte damit ihr Projekt “Looking for a Husband with EU Passport” (2000-05).

Ostojić studierte an der Universität der Künste Belgrad und der École Régionale des Beaux-Arts Nantes, während sie 2012-14 Stipendiatin an der Graduiertenschule für die Künste und Wissenschaften an der Universität der Künste Berlin war. Sie hat etliche Stipendien und Preise erhalten; ihre Performances und Ausstellungskunstwerke haben sie seit 1994 zu zahlreichen wichtigen Kunststätten und Festivals weltweit geführt. Ihre Werke sind Teil bedeutender Museumssammlungen, sie hat Vorträge, Vorlesungen, Seminare und Workshops auf wissenschaftlichen Konferenzen und an Kunsthochschulen in Europa sowie in Nord- und Südamerika gehalten. 

Ostojić ist derzeit Stipendiatin der Kulturakademie Tarabya in Istanbul (Juni-September 2021).

Über den Workshop:

Das Projekt Mis(s)placed Women?  beinhaltet das Auspacken eines Koffers, einer Plastiktüte, einer Handtasche oder eines ähnlichen Objekts im öffentlichen Raum, wobei diese Objekte für das Thema Vertreibung stehen, das in den alltäglichen Erfahrungen von Transitreisenden, Migrant:innen, Obdachlosen, Kriegs- und Katastrophenflüchtigen vorkommt. Der Workshop zielt darauf ab, die Teilnehmenden mit den Themen vertraut zu machen und Diskussionen und Interventionen in der Vielfalt des öffentlichen Raums anzuregen.

Der erste Teil des Workshops umfasst ein Kennenlernen, Informieren und Kommunizieren, wobei sich die Teilnehmenden über individuelle Erfahrungen und die Ziele des Projekts austauschen sollen.

Während des zweiten Teils werden die Teilnehmenden ermutigt und dabei unterstützt, Live-Performances und Interventionen in den Straßen, Parks und Bahnhöfen Istanbuls zu verwirklichen.

In Istanbul, News, Workshops on August 10, 2021 at 12:59 pm

(Click and follow the link for Türk/ Turkish / German /Deutsch )

This is the Open Call for the participants in the Mis(s)placed Women? 4-days-long, free of charge, performance art workshop in the variety of public spaces in Istanbul, with Tanja Ostojić, September 7–9, 2021, organised by international performance art platform Performistanbul in collaboration with Tarabya Cultural Academy, followed by a public presentation in the Beykoz Kundura Cinema on Saturday, September 25. The workshop is taking place during Ostojić’s residency in Tarabya and is exploring Live Art practices and methodologies in relation to the individual experiences of displacement in the the broader sense. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, August 31, 2021.

Mis(s)placed Women? is an art project by Tanja Ostojić that consists of performances, performance series, workshops and delegated performances, ongoing since 2009, including contributions by international artists and people from diverse backgrounds. Within this project we embody and enact some of everyday life’s activities that thematize displacement, as it is known to transients, migrants, war and disaster refugees, as well as gender queer, homeless, victims of family violence… and to the itinerant artists travelling the world to earn their living. Those performances continue themes of migration, and relations of power and vulnerability with regard to the mobile and in particular the female body, an aspect that figured prominently in numerous previous works of Ostojić.

Participants of all backgrounds, ages, genders and levels of experience that can commit to participate for the entire duration of the workshop are welcome. We particularly encourage those who are interested in issues of migration, performance art, conditions related to the ones identifying as women, representations of gender and art in the public realm. Participants are invited and encouraged to share and exchange experiences and issues of migration, marginalisation, displacement, exposure and privilege and to enact some of the Misplaced Women? Performance Scores… The workshop is free of charge, refreshments and a light meal will be provided, professional photo and video documentation of participants’ work will be provided as well, and due to limited numbers of places we ask you kindly to apply. Workshop will be held in English language; let us know in case you need translation or have any special needs so that we try to provide translation, for example, for visually impaired persons, or sign language for hearing impaired participants, etc…

During the workshop and the presentation all hygienic measures against the spread of  Coronavirus will be respected. All participants will have an opportunity to perform in the public spaces, to write and exchange about it, and outcomes will be presented to the public in the form of a public talk along with visuals, and included on the Misplaced Women? project blog and the project’s archive.

About the workshop:

The Mis(s)placed Women? project involves, for example, the unpacking of a suitcase, a plastic bag, a handbag or a similar object in a public sphere, whereby these objects come to stand for a displacement, as a theme that is common in everyday experiences of transients, migrants, homeless, war and disaster refugees and persons escaping home because of domestic violence. The workshop aims to familiarise the participants with the topics and to stimulate discussion and interventions in the variety of public spaces.

The first part of the workshop includes getting together, informing and communicating, whereby the participants shall exchange with each other about individual experiences and the aims of the project.

During the second part, the participants are encouraged and supported to enact live performances and interventions in the streets, parks and stations of Istanbul. Public performances and the workshop process will be documented by a professional photograph and video team.

The outcomes of the workshop will be presented to the public, two weeks later in the Beykoz Kundura Cinema. All participants of the workshop are invited to take active part in this presentation and the following discussion.

The documentation, notes, written texts and reflections from the workshop will be gathered by Performistanbul, and later edited, translated and published on the Mis(s)placed Women? project website, Misplaced Women?

O projektu:  

“Misplaced Women?”je umjetnički projekt Tanje Ostojić koji se sastoji od performansa, serija performansa, radionica i delegiranih performansa, a koji traje od 2009. godine, uključujući doprinose međunarodnih umjetnica i ljudi različitih profila. Unutar ovog projekta utjelovljujemo i izvodimo neke od svakodnevnih životnih aktivnosti koje tematiziraju raseljavanje, kao temu koja je poznata osobama s privremenim boravištem, migrantima, izbjeglicama iz područja pogođenima ratovima i prirodnim katastrofama, kao i queer osobama, beskućnicima… i umjetnicima nomadima koji putuju svijetom kako bi zaradili za život. Performansi se bave kontinuiranim temama migracija i odnosima moći i ranjivosti s obzirom na pokretno, posebice žensko tijelo, aspekt koji je istaknut u brojnim prethodnim radovima Tanje Ostojić.

O voditeljici radionice:

Tanja Ostojić (* 1972) je priznata umjetnica performansa i interdisciplinarna umjetnica rođena u Jugoslaviji, bazirana u Berlinu i Beogradu, s angažiranim umjetničkim djelima u feminizmu i migracijskoj politici. Uključuje se kao lik u performansima i koristi se raznim medijima u svojim umjetničkim istraživanjima, istražujući tako društvene konfiguracije i odnose moći. Djeluje pretežno iz perspektive žene migrantice, unutar specifičnog društvenog konteksta. Pristupi njenom radu definirani su političkim pozicioniranjem i integracijom recipijenta. Od 1994. godine predstavlja svoj rad na brojnim izložbama, festivalima i mjestima širom svijeta. Držala je predavanja, razgovore, seminare i radionice na akademskim konferencijama i na umjetničkim sveučilištima širom Europe i u Americi.

O radionici

Projekt “Misplaced Women?” uključuje raspakiranje kofera, plastične vrećice, torbice ili sličnog predmeta u javnoj sferi, pri čemu ovi predmeti predstavljaju raseljavanje, kao temu koja je česta u svakodnevnim iskustvima osoba s privremenim boravištem, migranata, beskućnika i izbjeglica iz područja pogođenih ratovima i katastrofama. Cilj radionice je upoznati sudionice/ke s temama i potaknuti raspravu i intervencije u raznim javnim prostorima.

Prvi dio radionice uključuje upoznavanje, informiranje i razgovor, pri čemu će sudionice/i međusobno razmjenjivati pojedinačna iskustva i definirati ciljeve projekta.

Tijekom drugog dijela, sudionice/i se potiču i podržavaju u izvođenju samostalnih i grupnih performansa i intervencija uživo na splitskim ulicama i u parkovima. Javne nastupe dokumentirat će profesionalni fotograf.

Ishodi radionice bit će diskutirani i predstavljeni javnosti trećeg dana u Amfiteatru Doma mladih (Ulica slobode 28). Sve/i sudionice/i radionice pozvane/i su da aktivno sudjeluju u ovoj prezentaciji i razgovoru koji će uslijediti.

Dokumentaciju, bilješke i razmišljanja s radionice prikupit će i urediti Culture Hub Croatia te objaviti na web stranici projekta “Misplaced Women?”.

Datumi radionice: utorak, srijeda i četvrtak (6. – 8. travnja 2021.) 

Rok za prijavu za sudjelovanje na radionici: srijeda, 24. ožujka 2021.

Misplaced in Europe?

In Berlin, News on September 11, 2019 at 6:38 pm

Performance Announcement, Berlin:

“Misplaced in Europe?”, on precarity, intimidation and illegality

Luciana Damiani came from Uruguay in order to contribute to the “Misplaced Women?” Project in Berlin. We are calling spontaneously for Berlin Misplaced Women? international community, and beyond to join us for exchange & performance(es) this Friday, September 13, at noon at the Park am Nordbahnhof. We are meeting at 12h at the main entrance of the Park, from Julie-Wolfthorn-Straße, 10115 Berlin.

I would like to use this opportunity to share Luciana’s performance announcement:

My name is Luciana Damiani, I am a visual artist and I come from Uruguay. As a Latin American migrant woman I know the fear of borders, fear of rejection and expulsion. Walking across that border is already part of my life and my artistic work. Why should I ask for a permission to exist? Being a migrant is a human condition that places us in a place of great vulnerability, so we must share it, to resist and to know that we are not alone.  I am grateful for this opportunity to collaborate on the “Misplaced Woman?” project with Tanja Ostojić.

You are welcome to find out more about my work on my website.

Mi nombre es Luciana Damiani, soy artista visual y vengo desde Uruguay para colaborar en el proyecto “Misplaced Woman?” de Tanja Ostojić. Como mujer migrante latinamericana conozco el miedo a las fronteras, miedo al rechazo y a la expulsón. Caminar a través de esa frontera ya es parte de mi vida y de mi trabajo artístico. Por qué debo pedir permiso para ser?  Ser migrante es una condición humanda que nos coloca en un lugar de mucha vulnerabilidad, por eso debemos compartirlo, para resistir y para saber que no estamos solxs. 

Están invitadxs a conocer más sobre mi trabajo en mi sitio web

About the exhibition:

The protest movements of over the last ten years have brought the importance of the body as a means of political articulation back into our attention. Thereby, the vulnerability and fragility of the protesting bodies have often become disturbingly clear. The exhibition presents works by artists who reflect on the significance of physical presence of the body in public space, on the possibilities (and limitations) of art as a space to negotiate the social and the political and the role of activism and protest in the contemporary world with its neo-liberal understanding of globalisation. It offers a new perspective on the articulation of the political in contemporary art and reflects on the possibilities of art to express dissenting voices. 

The exhibition Beautiful Trouble. Rethinking Art-ivism is organised in the frame of the Arrival City project, which seeks to investigate questions pertaining to artistic relocation and offer a forum for international and newly arrived artists in Berlin. The term “arrival city” was coined by the journalist and writer Doug Saunders in his book Arrival City (2011). Saunders described cities and areas which had been shaped by migration, processes of relocation and the stories of their inhabitants. Although he did not deny challenges, his conclusion was overall positive as he highlighted the vitality that the newcomers brought to their new homes. With this project we would like to take up this idea and reflect on the city as a form of “cultural laboratory” as a space of co-existence of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. The project will take the form of four exhibitions and two panel discussions, organised throughout 2018.  Curated by Charlotte Bank and Salah Saouli

ENGLISH VERSION 

Über das Projekt:

Misplaced Women? ist ein Kunstprojekt von Tanja Ostojić bestehend aus Performances, Performance-Serien, Werkstätten und delegierten Performances, das seit 2009 läuft und Beiträge internationaler Künstler_innen, Student_innen, und Menschen mit verschiedenen Hintergründen beinhaltet. Im Kontext des Projekts verkörpern und inszenieren wir einige der alltäglichen Aspekte, welche Formen der Vertreibung charakterisieren, die Durchreisenden, Migrant_innen, Kriegs- und Katastrophenflüchtlingen ebenso vertraut sind wie nomadischen Künstler_innen, die um die Welt reisen, um ihren Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Diese Performances behandeln bleibende Themen von Migrations- und Machtbeziehungen, wie sie den mobilen, vor allem den weiblichen Körper betreffen, ein Aspekt, der bereits in diversen früheren Arbeiten von mir behandelt wurde.

Über die Workshop-Leiterin: 

Tanja Ostojić (*1972) ist eine renommierte interdisziplinäre Performance-Künstlerin, die in Jugoslawien geboren wurde und seit 2003 in Berlin lebt. Ihre Werke beschäftigen sich vor allem mit Feminismus und Migrationspolitik.  Sie bezieht sich selbst als Figur in ihre Performances ein und benutzt diverse Medien in ihren künstlerischen Recherchen, um soziale Konfigurationen und Machtverhältnisse zu untersuchen. Sie arbeitet vor allem aus der Perspektive einer Migrantin – innerhalb spezifischer sozialer Kontexte –, wobei die politische Positionierung sowie die Inklusion der Betrachter_innen die Ansätze ihrer Arbeit definieren. Seit 1994 hat sie ihre Arbeiten in zahlreichen Ausstellungen, Festivals und Veranstaltungen in der ganzen Welt präsentiert. Sie hat Vorträge, Vorlesungen und Seminare gegeben sowie Workshops bei akademischen Konferenzen und in Kunstuniversitäten in Europa und Amerika abgehalten.

Über den Workshop:

Das Misplaced Women? Projekt beinhaltet das Auspacken des eigenen Koffers, einer Plastiktüte, Handtasche oder Ähnlichem im öffentlichen Raum, eine Handlung, welche für die Erfahrung der Vertreibung steht, die den Alltag von Migrant_innen, Durchreisenden, Obdachlosen sowie Kriegs- und Katastrophenflüchtlingen bestimmt. Die Werkstatt zielt darauf, die Teilnehmer_innen mit diesen Themen vertraut zu machen und zu Diskussionen und Interventionen in den unterschiedlichen öffentlichen Räumen anzuregen.

Der erste Teil der Werkstatt besteht aus einem Zusammenkommen, bei dem sich die Teilnehmer_innen über ihre individuellen Erfahrungen und die Ziele des Projekts austauschen und informieren können.

Während des zweiten Teils werden die Teilnehmer_innen dazu ermutigt und dabei unterstützt, Live-Performances und Interventionen in den Straßen und Parks von Innsbruck zu veranstalten. Die öffentlichen Performances werden professionell fotografisch dokumentiert.

Die Resultate des Workshops  werden am dritten Tag in Die Bäckerei, Kulturbackstube in Innsbruck der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert. Alle Teilnehmer_innen sind dazu eingeladen, aktiv an dieser Präsentation und der im Anschluss daran stattfindenden Diskussion teilzunehmen.

Die Dokumentation sowie die gesammelten Notizen und Reflexionen vom Workshop werden editiert und auf der Webseite des Misplaced Women? Projekts veröffentlicht.

Termine des Workshops:  Freitag, Samstag und Sonntag, 11. – 13 Mai, 2918

Wer kann sich bewerben?

Teilnehmer_innen unterschiedlichen Hintergrunds und Geschlechts, die sich für die gesamte Dauer der Werkstatt zur Teilnahme verpflichten können, sind herzlich willkommen. Besondere Sprachkenntnisse sind nicht erforderlich. Wir heißen alle Menschen mit „Behinderungen“ willkommen sowie all jene, die kein Englisch oder Deutsch sprechen. Wir bitten darum, besondere Anforderungen in der Bewerbung anzugeben.
