Production specifics
Koproduktion steirischer herbst & Camera Austria

“Unexpected Encounters”, building on questions posed in the 2012 project “Art is Concrete”, focuses on the moment after the uprising: its starting point is the occurrence of and return to a normal state of life following upheaval. The collective desire for normality gives rise to new myths of order, institutions, history and identity. A number of initiatives and groups from various countries that underwent revolutions and political / societal upheaval – in some instances dating back twenty years or more – are invited to collaborate with Camera Austria in creating contributions that reflect and explore these phenomena. How can the indiscernible nuances of these political transformations be transmitted into the realm of cultural spaces without reducing them? How can artistic practice serve as a means of translating the complex political, institutional and social resistances into material forms?
