Experience Experiment 2005
@ Hangar 1018

If December is a month of celebration, what better than to celebrate the spirit of creative play?

Experience Experiment 2005 brings together virtuoso experimentalists from Los Angeles and Vienna. We turn the tables on what has burned the names of these cities into the imagination worldwide. Vienna is a city of music and L.A. the capital of the moving image, but what happens when Vienna's leading experimental video artists meet some of L.A.'s most progressive DJs and producers. Show up to find out, sample traditional warm mulled wine or "Gluehwein" and make yourself part of the celebration.

Vidok Collective (www.vidok.org)

Vidok was founded in 2000 in Vienna and the connecting element of the collective is the interest in experimental, reduced-abstract approaches, which in their visual aesthetics - either in a video, a webpage, CD-Rom or DVD - stand out as characteristic criterion of the approach. The collective's intense co-operation with musicians and music labels have entailed numerous projects such as music videos, record covers, internet sites, live-acts with projections, and thus is typical for the nonhierarchical crossover-works as group between the different areas of the electronic culture.

The manifold media embraced by the collective's work enlarges the presentation modes and creates the possibility to act within various contexts and question the narrow borders between the singular genres and to redefine them always anew. The individual fields cover such different formats as print, film, web design, programming, live-performances, installations, video or DVD and build a bridge between art & design, fine arts & new media, and entailed for the studio collective diverse projects with Vienna-based art & culture institutions, such as Sixpackfilm, Museumsquartier, Kunsthalle, Künstlerhaus, Medienwerkstatt, Diagonale or the magazine Springerin.

Monochrom (www.monochrom.at)

Monochrom is an art-technology-philosophy group of basket weaving enthusiasts and theory do-it-yourselfers having its seat in Vienna and Zeta Draconis. Monochrom is the super-affirmation of the globalization trap. monochrom has existed in this (and every other) form since 1993.

monochrom is an open field of experimentation:

international art scene, panel discussion event technology, souls bought and sold, game and shame shows, readings of the dreariest sort, theory cocooning, film short processing, website squatters' consultancy, alternative space travel projects, do-it-yourself surveillance courses, riddle rallyes, ecumenical field services, overhead projector comics, circumstantiation, Power Point fairytales, layouting and decomposition, propagandistic summer camps, monumental puppet theater, aesthetic pregnancy counseling, producing, promoting and destroying music, party service, expressional dance, Biennial brawls, GDR rock, DJ events and lots more...

monochrom's mission, its passion and quasi-ontological vocation, is primarily the collection, grouping, registration and querying (liberation?) of the scar tissue represented by everyday cultural artifacts. This mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost in culture-archeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and entertainment.

monochrom is: Johannes Grenzfurthner, Evelyn Fürlinger, Frank Apunkt Schneider, Franky Ablinger, Anika Kronberger, Harald Homolka List, Daniel Fabry and a whole lot of satellites.



John & Henry Ford, alias Thomas Draschan & Sebastian Brameshuber
Austria, 2004 | 3 min | 35 mm | Color
Produktion: Amour Fou

Preserving Cultural Traditions in a Period of Instability is a computer-generated video based on artifacts occurring during compression procedures. A short hypnotic and monotonous sound-loop underlines the structural character of the video footage, whilst a commentary by Stan Brakhage on the rise of digital technologies and new media forms the second sound layer. (Thomas Draschan)

Fordbrothers explode the visual field as a strangely familiar, but unidentified, voice rails against computer technology and modern society. (Mark Webber)
