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?
