Each One, Teach One
Theory Tuesdays
Philip Matesic
 

Theory Tuesdays is a participatory reading group organized in the spirit of "each one, teach one." Philip Matesic will launch the weekly reading group with the organization and coordination of the first six weeks under the theme "Participation in Art." The required texts will be read by each member in advance and then discussed together as a group.

At the conclusion of the fifth week, the reading schedule will be open to the individual members of the group, to decide what to read and discuss in the following weeks. Active participation by all members is essential as Theory Tuesdays sets out to be a collaborative, ongoing discussion, where everyone will contribute, teach and learn from one another.

The first two Tuesdays will address the historical lineage of participation in art as well as a detailed glimpse into Happenings in New York in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The first session will be held on Tuesday, Oktober 6 at 7 p.m. All subsequent sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. (schedule below). A nominal CHF 20.- tuition fee for participating members will include copies of required readings and help fund a small travel budget for the visiting artist.

Simple Mathematics


"Auf Nic Hess’ Wegen bleiben die Insignien der globalisierten Welt an den Bändern und Folien kleben. Insbesondere Logos und Markenzeichen, Signets und Embleme gehen ihm auf den Leim, von Finanzinstituten und Hilfswerken, von Sportartikelherstellern und Lebensmittelketten. Mit dieser Entourage in den Museen, Galerien, Kulturinstituten, aber auch Privathäusern und Industriekomplexen angekommen, verklebt Nic Hess seine Bänder und Folien zu grossen Erzählungen, wie andere Künstler Linien zeichnen und Flächen malen. Wand- und deckenfüllend, treppenhausdurchwandernd, die Fenster kreuzend, bis in die Schornsteine kriechend. Die unterwegs eingefangenen Logos und anderen Zeichen finden sich, miteinander versöhnt und verbrüdert, an allen Ecken und Enden. Daher hat Nic Hess weltweit nicht nur den Ruf, Meister der Klebebänder zu sein, sondern auch Meister der Logos."

Visiting Artist Series: Jana Stepanova

Philip Matesic
 


Capture from the “United We Stay / Family map” series, 2007


Jana Stepanova, a Prague-based visual artist and designer, participated in a three-month residency in Zurich by a Swiss foundation ProHelvetia (June–August 2010). In her work, Jana often subverts social reality, control and system as well as commonly accepted values by releasing fake websites, magazines or creating fake identities. Recently, the Czech ministry of Labour and Social Affairs had filed criminal charges against her for internet project “rent-a-baby”.

The residency enabled Jana to expand her community-based long-term project United We Stay/Family Map with Swiss families. By engaging local families she explores the Norms and Normatives regulating the society. She started the project in the USA in 2004 and continued than in Germany, Belgium and Czech Republic.

In October 2010, she will present her project in the “Storytelling” show, curated by Dimitrina Sevova in the White Space/Zurich (Opening October 1st, 2010)
