WORK OUT #1–3: Exhibition Openings

Art & Science' first years students

A presentation of three group-shows on three different evenings by the first-year students of the Art & Science department of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

WORK OUT, an analogy to both physical activity as well as the process of problem solving, is the culmination of our first year of studies. Much like a science-oriented laboratory, the studios of the Art & Science department are a place where different narratives and visualization strategies are explored. Impacted by diverse discourses reaching from astronomy to medicine, critical studies to logic, the shows feature the diverse artistic practices of painting, drawing, building and performing in relationship to scientific inquiry.
The series starts with the subjective gaze inside, continues with experiments about the objective true–false dichotomy, and ends with practices negotiating and building intersubjective truths. We invite those outside of our subjective circle to join us, as we put our work out.


WORK OUT #1: Inside Out

15th May 2018 | 6:00 pm
Art & Science studios on the top floor at Annex Hohenstaufengasse 9, 1010 Vienna
The exhibition shows works which are elaborated at the interface of artistic practice and scientific research, as these works deal with the mutual relationship of inner worlds and outer worlds. Inspired by and connected to discourses within psychological, medical, philosophical and art historical theories, questions concerning the different layers of self-designing and the mechanics of outside-world constructions are addressed in dependency to a specific focus on contemporary information societies and the boosted impact of digital data on personal living circumstances.
Works by Johannes Frauenschuh, Jasmina Grudnik, Mauricio Suarez Ramos
Cooperation partner: Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Franz Kainberger and Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Andrea Maier (Medical University of Vienna)

WORK OUT #2: True/False: The Path in Between

29th May 2018 | 6:00 pm
Art & Science studios on the top floor at Annex Hohenstaufengasse 9, 1010 Vienna
A line connecting five different approaches to the conception of truth, from its binary behavior in logic, to an unrecognizable interwoven construction of it. This exhibition displays the outcomes of examining the blurred borders of truthfulness and the hazy area around its possible values.
How much room is given for self-interpretation?
Works by Ivonne Gracia Murillo, Jasjote Grewal, Nora Lengyel, Marthin Rozo, Marc Schuran
Cooperation partner: Martin Reinhart (Principal investigator PEEK/FWF, Data Loam, University of Applied Arts Vienna)


WORK OUT #3: Interference Practice

5th June 2018 | 6:00 pm
Seminarraum 23 on Zwischengeschoss (ZG) at Annex Vordere Zollamtsstraße 3, 1030 Vienna
What is an entity? In the tradition of Aristotelian classification systems, it is mainly defined by its characteristics: a star system by its extent and parts, a muscle by its shape and function, a personality by its substructure. Monica LoCascio, Zsuzsa Rózsavölgyi, and Laura Stoll approach the question of entity differently: through interrelatedness, repetition, and process they explore the continuity that emerges from the interference of different practices instead of the increasingly hollow claim of object ontology.
