BEHIND THE SCENES | POINTS OF RESISTANCE 3 | THE UNVEILING OF STEFAN RINCK'S 'HOW I BEAR'!
_____

Behind the scenes at Points of Resistance 3!

Join us on the 9th November for the unveiling of 'How I Bear', a piece by Stefan Rinck as well as lectures, film screenings, and a concert by renowned composer Sven Helbig.

Also included in the program is our symposium, 'Birds & Bicycles: Paradoxes of Freedom' in which the panellists, both artists and curators, will talk concretely about how they think art and culture express and reflect the truths of our time.

This program is prompted by two recent exhibitions: Points of Resistance, shown earlier this year at the Zionskirche (4-26 April 2021), and Taking Flight: Birds & Bicycles Berlin, currently at MOMENTUM in the Kunstquartier Bethanien (4 September – 14 November 2021), brought together by their moral imperative and political and social need to preserve and promote difference as a fountainhead of creativity.

FROM THE MOMENTUM COLLECTION ARCHIVE | @qiuanxiong ‘Cake’, 2014.
______

Qiu Anxiong’s Cake combines painting, drawing and claymation with a discordant soundtrack of mechanical noises to offer an exquisitely crafted contemplation on the past, the present, and the relationship between the two. At once timeless and prescient, this work made six years before the viral pandemic of Corona, already evokes a mounting sense of emergency. With heart-rate monitors, sirens, and police radio scanners running throughout the soundtrack, and images of wrestlers rendered in a variety of media, this work can be read as particularly emblematic of our struggles in the age of Corona.

Qiu Anxiong (b. 1972, Chengdu) is one of China’s most prominent contemporary artists. Brought up in the capital of Sichuan province in the southwest of China. There, he studied at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute under the progressive artistic practice of Ye Yongqing and Zhang Xiaogang. In 2003 he graduated from the University of Kassel College of Art in Germany after six years of studying both contemporary international art and traditional Chinese culture.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT |
TAKING FLIGHT: BIRDS & BICYCLES

Interview with Inna Artemova for our #artistspotlight
_____

This week we asked Inna about the significance of her Utopia’s as well as the process behind her works.

Inna Artemova studied architecture at the Moscow Architectural Institute (MArchI). For her diploma project, she received the 2nd prize of the Russian Federation. Her experience of the failure of the Communist utopia with the fall of the Soviet Union, has led Artemova to explore, through her constructivist painting style, the ideas of architectural utopias from the 1960s up to her own futuristic visions. In creating utopian landscapes and spaces, Artemova interrogates the future of living spaces and their impact upon human relationships.

Inna’s work is currently being shown tour space in Kunstquartier Bethanien!

________

Birds & Bicycles is conceived as a ‘factory of metaphors’, taking as its premise the ideas of freedom and the notion of borders, forever shifting and perpetually being crossed, where bicycles symbolise physical freedom, and birds metaphysical freedom; birds become the philosophy of freedom, and bicycles the technology of freedom. The overall manifestation of Birds & Bicycles is an international cooperation between 9 partners in Russia, Poland, and Germany, each hosting their own exhibitions and discussions focused around common values symbolized by the topics of freedom and crossing of borders. Based on social activism, historical reflections, and contemporary art, the project develops an expanding framework of participatory culture, with the contributions of each international partner brought together in a single online platform sharing the social, educational, and communicative results of the Birds & Bicycles initiative.

Our Story

MOMENTUM is a non-profit platform for time-based art, active worldwide since 2010, with headquarters in Berlin at the Kunstquartier Bethanien. MOMENTUM’s program is composed of local and international Exhibitions, Artist and Curator Residencies, Video Art in Public Space Initiatives, a Performance Archive, an Education Archive, and a growing Collection. By enabling Exhibition, Discussion, Research, Creation, Collection, and Exchange, MOMENTUM is a platform which challenges the notion of time-based art in the context of both historical and technological development. Visual languages continue to evolve in concert with the technologies which drive them, and it is the role of visual artists to push the limits of these languages. As the world speeds up, and time itself seems to flow faster, MOMENTUM provides a program focused on the growing diversity and relevance of time-based practices, exploring how time-based art reflects the digitization of our societies and the resulting cultural change. Positioned as both a local and global platform, MOMENTUM serves as a bridge joining professional art communities, irrespective of institutional and national borders. Working on a model of international partnerships and cooperations, MOMENTUM supports artists and artistic innovation, bringing to Berlin work by international artists that would not otherwise have been seen here, and ensuring an international audience for exceptional local artists. The key ideas driving MOMENTUM are: Cooperation, Exchange, Education, Innovation, and Inspiration. MOMENTUM continuously seeks innovative answers to the question ‘What is time-based art?’. Having been founded in Australia by Dr. Rachel Rits-Volloch as a parallel event to the 17 Biennale of Sydney in May 2010, MOMENTUM moved to Berlin to a permanent space in the thriving Art Center Kunstquartier Bethanien in January 2011. Since its inception, MOMENTUM has presented over 70 Exhibitions showing the work of over 500 artists, as well as nearly 60 Education Events filmed and archived on the website, in addition to an ongoing program of Artistic Research Residencies which has so far hosted over 30 international artists. MOMENTUM is also proud to feature the works of 69 artists in the MOMENTUM Performance Archive and Collection. MOMENTUM Exhibitions: Committed to supporting artists and artistic innovation, MOMENTUM works with both local and global artists, from students to superstars. With an ongoing exhibition program active both in Berlin and abroad, in collaboration with museums and institutions in our global network, MOMENTUM brings to Berlin work by international artists that would not otherwise have been seen here, and ensures an international audience for exceptional local artists. MOMENTUM plays an active role in the Berlin art community and works with exceptional Berlin-based artists to enable them to make new work for a global audience. MOMENTUM generates exchange, sharing resources, and broadening audiences by providing links and communications between international networks of artists and institutions. MOMENTUM’s major exhibitions include MOMENTUM Sydney (2010, Sydney Australia); A Wake: Still Lives and Moving Images (2011, MOMENTUM Berlin); the Works On Paper Performance Series (2013, 2014, 2015, MOMENTUM, Berlin); Thresholds (2013, Collegium Hungaricum, Berlin; 2014, TRAFO Center for Contemporary Art, Szczecin, Poland); PANDAMONIUM: Media Art from Shanghai (2014, MOMENTUM, Berlin); Fragments of Empires (2014-2015, MOMENTUM, Berlin); BALAGAN!!! Contemporary Art from the Former Soviet Union and Other Mythical Places (2015, MOMENTUM / Külhaus, / Stiftung Brandenburger Tor at Max Liebermann Haus, Berlin); Ganz Grosses Kino (2016, Kino Internationale, Berlin); HERO MOTHER: Contemporary Art by Post-Communist Women Rethinking Heroism (2016, MOMENTUM, Berlin), amongst many others. MOMENTUM AiR: MOMENTUM’s Artist-in-Residence program is designed to further the mission of MOMENTUM as a global platform for time-based art, focused on the growing diversity and relevance of time-based practices. The MOMENTUM Residency is dedicated to artistic research into time and temporality in visual language. Open to artists working in a variety of media and practices, MOMENTUM AiR is a process-based residency designed to facilitate research as much as production of new work, while providing a framework for building professional networks and cooperations within Berlin’s thriving art community. MOMENTUM AiR hosts up to 3 artists or curators at a time for a suggested period of 3 months. MOMENTUM InsideOut: With this initiative for video art in public space, MOMENTUM turns the museum and gallery inside out by bringing museum quality art onto the streets for all to see. MOMENTUM_InsideOut has taken place across multiple locations in Berlin, as well as internationally, making video art and performance widely accessible to new audiences and building curiosity and public interest in contemporary art. MOMENTUM Collection: The MOMENTUM Collection was established in 2010 through the generosity of a small group of artists who’s work was shown at MOMENTUM Sydney in May 2010. The donations of their works constituted their investment in MOMENTUM’s then-nascent model as a global and mobile platform for showing time-based art. Six years later, the MOMENTUM Collection has expanded from its original roster of 10 to 34 artists. The Collection represents a cross-section of over 120 outstanding artworks in a diversity of media: video, performance, photography, painting, collage, and text. It ranges from some of the most established to emerging artists representing 22 countries worldwide: Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Russia, Turkey, the UK, and the US. The growth of the Collection reflects the growth of MOMENTUM itself. While we develop and nurture our relationships with these artists, we continually endeavor to bring their work to new audiences worldwide through our online platform, as traveling exhibitions, and through educational initiatives such as the year-long initiative Time_Art_Impact Dialogues with Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai. MOMENTUM Performance Archive: MOMENTUM's focus on time-based generates an active performance program. MOMENTUM is committed to documenting and archiving all the performances we commission, produce, and host. This archive is made available to the public as an educational resource and on our online platform. The Performance Archive also forms a resource for international exhibitions of MOMENTUM's Collection and Education resources. MOMENTUM Education: Education and discussion are a key aspect of MOMENTUM's programming. Each Exhibition and Artist Residency at MOMENTUM is accompanied by a discursive program of Artist Talks, Symposia, Panel Discussions, Workshops or Kunst Salon events, which bring selected art professionals together with the general public to discuss the show and its broader implications. All discursive programming is documented on video and, along with the MOMENTUM Collection and Performance Archive, are archived and made available on our website and social media as an educational resource. MOMENTUM is committed to creating an educational exchange between the general public, cultural institutions, and the international art community by actively developing programming which shares its educational resources with the public in Berlin and beyond. MOMENTUM Press: MOMENTUM's independent publishing branch works hand in hand with our commitment to documentation, archiving, and education. MOMENTUM produces catalogues for each exhibition, published either in print or as E-catalogs. MOMENTUM also maintains catalogues of our growing Collection and Performance Archive.
