Labfactory, Vienna, Praterstrasse 42/1/3, (U1 Station: Nestroyplatz)
opening :: underground city >Kinematic Mysterium<
As announced to a circle of people LABfactory enacts the start of the project underground city 21 – from the very beginningThe real start was different … but what does real mean … as reality is a virtual construction of our minds.
A project not just taking up the topics of underground societies and social structures, but also practically establishing a platform under the surface of current mainstream society.
The platform is actually a fractal were the artistic and discursive particular projects are mirroring the over-all-project as total by, still independent and self-consistent, being a part of it.
Every physical space enacting and producing an artwork or other action in these terms becomes a (temporary) gate to UC21 – underground city 21. The artists becoming citizens by acting in the frame of UC21.
The first honorary citizens of UC21 entering the world of silence with their ideas, skills and action, entering through the gate of LABfactory are: Erik Alalooga and Mai Sööt (Tallinn / Estonia)

About “Manic.Fiction”: Curator Lucas Czjzek has put together a collection of videos* produced by artists connected via sonance.artistic.network in Vienna, Austria titled â€œManic.fiction â€“ re.sonance.dvd.007â€³. â€œI think people in wealthy parts of the world are living within a manic fiction, broadcasting that production is the only worthy thing to do. This will force people to forget about the value of inactivity and the opportunity of downtime. Manic.fiction approaches the need to reduce speed and rethink time,â€ says producer Simon B. Haefele.

As a follow up to the “Art Brunch series for Estonia” by Simon B. Haefele the Austrian artist invites you to a late brunch. You are invited to think on the following questions and bring your thoughts to the get-together.
What to you think is the power of the artist?
What effects, what impact and what kind of influence on society can one single person have?
How is art being used by the various protagonists in the field and by yourself?
What could or should be brought to people by the use of artistic methods?
Installation: â€œYour-Self-Researchâ€ by Simon B. Haefele
Starting point of research on â€œThe Effect of Art on Disputed Boundariesâ€ in Estonia.
Presented on the Festival â€œSeahankâ€ (Pigskin) in Haapsalu, Estonia.
Materials: 1 DV-Camera, 1 Flat-Screen, DV-Tapes; Copyright 2009 Simon HÃ¤fele
The installation â€œYour-Self-Researchâ€ was an integral part of the International Performance Art Festival â€œSeahankâ€ of the curators and Toomik Jaan Eerik Alalooga in Haapsalu, Estonia. On 31st of July 2009 Simon B. HÃ¤fele installed the â€œclosed-circuit-installationâ€ at the entrance of a former cabarets from the Soviet era, the major venue of the festival. The interactive work provided the opportunity to ask and answer the basic question â€œHOW DO YOU USE ART?â€. The artist invited the visitors (approx. 350) to place themselves in front of the running camera and thus in the monitor to effect an inner dialogue. Questions and answers were recorded during the entire presentation.
A presentation about ART IN PROCESS and its projects – A partnership formed eight years ago. Works dealing with and examining questions about humans in their relation to the environment, urban settings, socio-political and cultural contexts. The created projects aim to lead to positive social change.
Bello will present some recent projects like SUEX (2008), EXILe and CONCEPTONE (2009) but also the currently developing project in Salzburg, called INTERVENTION.

sonance.artistic.network presents Burn Your Ideas!
Watch out: beginnig at 8 pm and not 7:30 pm
Burn Your Ideas! is an emergent collection of unrealized ideas. We focus our attention on those ideas that have been lying around in peopleâ€™s heads, lost in the back of mental drawers, never spoken out aloud for fear of embarrassment, or held back for idea-kleptophobia. We provide a positive environment for the reanimation of nascent thoughts. Naturally, under Creative Commons.

The search for art criticism on the Internet soon leads to projects and initiatives which use this medium for representation as well as for more or less subversive interlinkings. The borders between artistic interventions, staging, net art and art criticism seem to blur. The search for conventional art criticism is in vain.
