>redirect organizes its last events series at Künstlerhaus. The project uses materials of the present context that has been developed at the beginning of the haus.0 program in 1999, and at the same time, it refrains from possible future shapes. >redirect suggests a separation of the lines between fiction and history to form a fragile room in which an identity for 21st century Künstlerhaus can be recreated.
The room in which >redirect takes place, constitutes of a theoretical force field of attraction and repulsion and houses an exhibition of works that were created at Künstlerhaus between 1999 and 2002. The force field is located within an arrangement of different practices that form constellations of various filmic, artistic, historical or theoretical discourses.
Selected film screenings, talks and performances extend these dynamics by introducing a specific interpretation of “mass media” and by contrasting identities of early cinematic forms to its nationalist contexts. By relocating time and space of ritual obsession, synthetic samples of voices and the production of discursive forms of resistance, a territorial stream comes to light.
Stimulated by sociopolitical and cultural dynamics, breaking ties within the development of identities become visible
