Al Bird Gore (AUT) ///

quitch, Untere Donaulände 10, Linz ///

For the sec­ond time the quitch wel­comes “Salon Wiesen­grund”, a dis­cus­sion for­mat between art and phi­los­o­phy run by There­sa Luise Gindl­strass­er and Stephan Blu­men­schein since Decem­ber 2010.

The guest this time is Al Bird Gore, who stud­ies at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Vien­na, loves fakes of all kinds and also makes music (The Hap­py Kids, Gore Gore Boys). He talks about “hyp­o­crit­i­cal art school scum”, con­formism and the mangy superla­tives. Talk to us!

KOMMUNIQUÉ #09 — DEMENTED SMUT-ART MANIFESTO (COPENHAGEN 1976)”, a plea­sur­able com­mit­ment to more rad­i­cal­ism in Al Bird Gore’s con­tem­po­rary art, will serve as a start­ing point for a dis­cus­sion about con­formism, the art uni­ver­si­ty as a mar­ket breed­ing ground, and last but not least the ques­tion “How can crit­i­cism be prac­ticed these days?
