Special Presentations

ZONE1 2019 sees itself as an international creative discourse platform, where young artists and their gallerists – each individually and together – can engage, discuss, and envision with the visitors.

The section Exploration is curated by Harald Krejci and gathers various galleries from Europe presenting artistic positions of the 60s and 70s in a concentrated presentation of works. The section shows very different artistic attitudes, all of which, in their specific way, indirectly link or refer to the intellectual heritage of post-war surrealism.

This year’s Focus section will not revolve around the invited guest country, but will rather concentrate on the question: What is the experience of a state that is not based on territory, but on time? Based on the phenomenon “NSK State in Time”, the presentation tries to challenge the idea that art has to be represented in the realm of a nation-state.

In a selection of moving images considering the various modes of examining the contemporary condition – sleepless, aware, in constant tension between technological development, individuality, loss, desire, and mediatic presence – artists recount voyeurism and intimacy as forms of resistance revealing social anxieties along with deeper economic and power structures. Falling Awake envisions the condition of falling as a fundamental state, disrupting traditional modes of seeing and feeling to understand the perpetual mutability of things.
