As a filmmaker, Jenna Bliss (*1984) embarks on long periods of research, culminating in films such as The People’s Detox (USA / 2018 / 56 MIN). The film is a contemplative look at how the history of a revolutionary drug clinic reverberates through to contemporary notions of health and care.
In her artistic practice, Bliss distills elements from her research and translates them into photographs, short videos, and sculptures. The two videos “5 Stock/Gangway (chat)” and “New Delivery/Gangway (chat)” (both 2017 & 2019) show Super8mm film frames which are stacked one on top of the other and combined with footage shot from life or rephotographed from a computer screen. A speculative conversation between human and AI overlays the moving image.
The series of light-boxes presented at Paris Internationale 2020 are commercial street signs appearing throughout the city of New York, advertising logos from corporations such as Starbucks, Ford or BP. Mimicking the process of double-exposure (a technique close to analog film making) she chooses various film stills from her archival material and prints them on top of the lightboxes. These image-led sculptures were made at the beginning stages of a new film project, the first chapter of which will be premiering at her solo exhibition at Stadtgalerie Bern in early 2021. Centered around Wall Street over the past two decades, Bliss observes the subsequent changes in the urban landscape and social system of the city of New York as a window onto broader shifts since 9/11, throughout the financial crisis in 2008 and the current health crisis. While her practice is driven by a sincere observation of her surroundings and that of others, the work engages with the critical history of spectacle to chart shifts, repetitions and ruptures in response to current trends in society.

V (Gallery), 2020
Installation view, FELIX GAUDLITZ, Vienna

Tanja Widmann (*1966) is an artist, writer and a professor of Art Pedagogy/New Genres at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Widmann’s artistic practice reflects her interest in material and in social realities connected to the complex relationship of artwork, artist and economic and symbolic value production. Co-production and delegation, appropriation and remix, deformation and gag are at the core of her work that extends to the format of publication. In an economic way of production Widmann often reconfigures her own work; she re-edits and reformats different elements so that - while being similar – the art work not only changes in form, size and display methods but also offers a different track of information. For the presentation at Paris Internationale 2020 Widmann produces a new series of works by using scans from V (Online), an installation recently shown at FELIX GAUDLITZ: The works are inkjet prints on cut-out catalog pages of Wade Guyton’s Black Paintings (2011). The reoccurring printed motif is a detail of a picture that Widmann took with her smartphone; a close up of graffitis that visitors of the 2019 Venice Biennale scratched into the soft surface of a sculpture by Nairy Baghramian. One of the tags - Vanessa - , an ephemeral and easily overlooked element in the bigger scale of the Biennale, now becomes the protagonist of the show; a series of prints and exhibitions. Through reproduction and the simple modification of scale Widmann probes aspects of information and distribution, value production and artistic agency. The works presented in Paris are conceived as an installation of four digital prints and a framed inkjet print in a perspex box. V (Paris Internationale) proposes a variable set of configurations: each digital print can be acquired alone, in combination, or as installation.

Accounts of the present suggest that we are living at a time marked by the threat of an impending ultimate catastrophe, whether it be on economic, ecological, or social grounds.The contributions in this publication offer different reflections on the relations of subject and world after their fictional, speculative, or factual ends to keep questioning the modes of engagement: In which forms and with what vocabulary shall we narrate ourselves as deconstructed yet active post-apocalyptic subjects? Published on occasion of the, Post-apocalyptic Realism: It’s After the End of the World. Don’t You Know That? events in 2017 at Museum Brandhorst, Munich.

Ein kritischer Modus? Die Form der Theorie und der Inhalt der Kunst
Co-edited Helmut Draxler and Tanja Widmann
14.7 x 19.8 cm (5.787 x 7.795 in)
German, 328 pages
Published by Schlebrügge Editor / Vienna, 2013

In three lectures - “What does political art want?”, “Painting as dispositive”, and “The design of critique” - Helmut Draxler continues his thoughts from “Gefährliche Substanzen”. Those events were accompanied by three exhibitions, which were organized by young artists at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna. The lectures, reading-based exhibitions and works in the publication were discussed between participants. Those discussions are also documented. Thus a reader was created, that can be seen as a suggestion for how theory and practice in the arts can be put in relation, without breaking up, and how this relation allows the opening up of the symbolic space of criticism.
