Das Auslandsprojekt 2005 des Kunstvereins Via113 richtet sich wieder in Richtung europäische Gemeinschaft. Dabei gilt es, den Gedanken der erweiterten Kunstproduktion umzusetzen, der sowohl die Produkte als auch das Umfeld (Rede, Kritik, Vermittlungsmodell, Grenzbereiche, Finanzierung) umreisst.

Der Ausgangsort ist eine im Zentrum befindliche Wohnung in einem renovierten Haus mit grossem Garten. Wichtig sind dabei sowohl die Mitstreiter Segnior Zé & Segniora Mafalda als auch ein im Garten befindliches altes Haus.

Sie werden in der nächsten Zeit über die Projekte auf dieser Seite weitere Informationen finden. Falls Sie Interesse haben, Informationen über die Veranstaltungen zu bekommen, schicken Sie uns Ihre email: dschuerer@hotmail.com

The foreign project 2005 of Kunstverein Via 113 aimes again towards European Community. We want to work on the idea of extended artproductions that cover the products as well as their environment (speech, review, model of arrangement, border limits, financing).

The place is an appartment in a renovated house in the city center with a huge garden. Of importance are the participating Segnior Zé & Sengiora Mafalda as well as an old house in the garden.

You will find more informations on these projects in the near future on this page. If you are interested to receive information about the events, please send an eMail to: dschuerer@hotmail.com

Juli 2005 - Gallery 1

There are wristwatches. 124 wristwatches. Some you can buy in a shop for 2 500,- Euros.

For others you have to have more money in your pocket or on your account. The most expensive is

143 000,- Euro. The purpose of the wristwatches-union is an exhibition in the gallery street Rua Migi Bombi, a project of the CLAP/clube de arte Porto.

Gold, silver, platinic are the prefered material they are made of but here they are in a paper version, cut out of a publicity, without face, without dial, only the noble metal-, the fine skin bracelets and the frame of the face. Inside it is nothing or white. The white wall. It´s not nothing. It´s time without hurry, it´s calm, peaceful, silent still, powerful.

Tribunal Judicial de....”
trabalho de CLAP / via113

Há pinturas que contam histórias sobre as nossas vidas e suas circunstâncias. Por vezes são inventadas, por outras transformadas, às vezes nem uma coisa nem a outra. Há fotografias que contam histórias muito próximas de realidades muito apartadas das nossas experiências rotineiras.

Aqui existem estas instalações, de especificidade local, texto pintado sob o título “Tribunal Judicial de....” que nos oferecem um respiro, um murmúrio localizado que nos refere e acorda para o eco de tragédias a acontecer nas nossas cercanias. Elas podem ser vistas sob a luz sóbria do corpo ostensivo do direito; só as cores nos permitem optimismo.

There are paintings which are telling stories. About our lives and their circumstances. Sometimes they are invented, sometimes transformed, sometimes neither nor. There are fotos which are telling stories quite close to a reality which can be far away of our daily routine.

There is this site specific installation of painted text with the title “Tribunal Judicial de...” which gives us a brief outline of tragic events in our neighbourhood. They can be seen in a sober light of ostensible right. Only the coulors are talking of better prospects.
