WORLD OF MATTER – On the Global Ecologies of Raw Material

Curated by Inke Arns
→ HMKV at the Dortmunder U, 01 March 2014 – 22 June 2014
more information at www.hmkv.de
www.worldofmatter.net

 

World of Matter is an international research, exhibition, and online project investigating primary materials and the complex ecologies of which they are a part. The exhibition presents aesthetic and ethical approaches to the handling of resources, while challenging the anthropocentric assumption that the planet’s materials are primarily a resource for human consumption. The newly produced works engage mining in Brazil, oil extraction from Canada’s tar sands, rice and cotton production in southeast Asia, land reclamation in Egypt, fishing in the North Sea, the sugar trade in Nigeria, and coal mining in the Ruhr.

 

Artists: Ursula Biemann (CH), Mabe Bethonico (BR), Elaine Gan (US), Uwe H. Martin & Frauke Huber (DE), Peter Mörtenböck (UK) & Helge Mooshammer (AT), Emily Eliza Scott (US), Paulo Tavares (BR), Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan (NL)


INDUSTRIAL (Research)

Curated by Inke Arns, Thibaut de Ruyter
→ HMKV at the Dortmunder U, 14 September 2013 – 26 January 2014.
as part of the New Industries Festival (Libération published a double-page spread on 20 September 2013: “Dortmund l’ouvrière fait sa renaissance”)
Website
Brochure with texts by Inke Arns, Thibaut de Ruyter (PDF, 664 KB)

 

INDUSTRIAL (Research) consists of a 22 m long table with more than 80 books, 30 records, 15 videos and many objects, by and about: Symphony of Sirens (Baku 1922), Metropolis (1927), Magnitogorsk (1929), Bernd & Hilla Becher, Kraftwerk, Ruhrgebiet, Joy Division, Throbbing Gristle, Einstürzende Neubauten, Laibach, Bhopal, Unionbrauerei, Socheaux, Japan, Eisenhüttenstadt, Leipzig, Bytom, Detroit, Ekatarinburg, China, etc.

 

INDUSTRIAL (Research) asks how the industry has affected people and how music, literature and art reacted to this violence described by Horkheimer and Adorno in 1944. “The might of industrial society is lodged in men’s minds”, they wrote – for good, we might add. One has to imagine this “might” as a disciplination of the body and the mind, a huge industrial machine that adapts the human body – through disciplination, standardisation and de-individualisation – to its needs and conditions until it functions as effectively as possible. Echoing this vision, Heiner Müller observed in The Hamlet Machine (1977): “I want to be a machine. Arms to grasp legs to walk no pain no thoughts”.
