Rosa Stern Space presents the third edition of HEIMSPIEL: a group show which marks the foundation of Rosa Stern Space e.V. (a non-profit association for contemporary art) and features all seven co-founders. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of performances at secret locations and a DEEP TALK conversation at Favorit Bar Munich.
APOCALYPTIC HEDONISM brings together the heterogeneous influences and settings which form ROSA STERN SPACE as a material-discursive construct. Themes such as pornographic archeology, club culture, noise terrorism, erotic role play and the arcology of down unfold a common thinking and acting that involves the perforation of existing formats as well as a joint shifting of boundaries.
OPENING dialogues between diverse positions, rhythms and rhetorics. A critical cartography as an artificial counterweave for special times…
Radiant escapes, not from this world... Like moths to a flame, the scent of burnt illusions in our nose, intuitively following a mysterious rhythm – frantic, out of mind, melancholic, doomed – get lost, either in transcendental vastness or life-real depths *** Fine lines on which we dance, dampening the frustration of gloomy prospects… En masse, isolated, never alone. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE
"If I can't dance I don't want to be in your revolution" – Emma Goldman
In the exchange of energy, cathartic moments unfold dissident potentials – committed escapisms become resistant movements capable of defying hopeless abysses at the edge of individual, collective and planetary breaking points… TRY TO FORGET YOURSELF
Apocalyptic Hedonism as cultural practice or guilty pleasure, feat. sonic border crossings as triggers of euphoric visions or rapturous speculations, enlightening laconic tones and nuanced resonances, brightly united shadows and vague future memories – endless possibilities between After Hour and Safe Space... NEVER FORGET TO GO HOME
Rosa Stern Space on display – autonomous project and collective subject, independent platform and multi-layered network – an art run space whose entanglements reach far beyond its concrete dimensions and local interventions: WE have joined forces to equip ourselves as space and sphere players over the past years with a wide range of capabilities in rocket launch, satellite technologies, space sciences, applications and user services. This is an impressive achievement! Off to new shores… The space-ASSOCIATION-shift produces additional playing surfaces, fields of action and experimentation, virtualities, simultaneous worlds and interspaces.
More layers to be experienced soon…
