Quasikunst shows: blown coordinates from art-agens to body-movens.
Windlines – Movement A – 48 Hours of Drifting - Disappearing (50.000)
Quasikunst is systemic-performative research. Depending on the project, it calls out coordinates, increases and performs contradictions in the materiality of objects and contexts. In 2018, immateriality will be pushed forward. The focus is on the medium wind, on air, transparency, intangibility and the increase of distance.
Air is blown or better swirled through the house with a wind machine or several wind machines. Windlines ask questions about the organization of thinking and feeling, and we say: Better faded than networked. A living reference to Walter Benjamin's angel wanders backwards across the square: Movement A as a trace of memory in structured oblivion. An almost transparent flag flies 48 hours for a country of drifting entities - and for great inner and outer space. The visibility of the 50,000: wanting to end.
