The HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES is a pop-up museum, a collective artwork, an experimental field and a venue in the heart of Augsburg. It takes place as part of the High Peace Festival – a special holiday that only exists in Augsburg. For this, 55 creative minds will occupy a vacant house at Bäckergasse 4. We will form creative living communities and thus lead through our visions, dreams and nightmares of the future with a thematic thread. In addition to exhibitions in the rooms, there will also be a café to linger in, as well as numerous accompanying events and workshops.

“We hope that the work of many groups and people will become visible and tangible in the HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES. We hope that visitors will walk through the pop-up museum with a smile because they are looking forward to this future. At the same time, we want to create creative structures for the development process so that the participants in the HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES can experience empowerment, visibility and networking.” House of New Realities by Bluespots Productions


I “live” in the flat-sharing community “Anima” with 7 other artists and activists. The aim is to have the courage to deal with unpleasant topics, including accepting death as part of life. In my room I show the site specific video installation Post Mortem @honr as a large projection on one wall, next to it Deep Vanitas. The installation can be experienced during the usual exhibition dates.

I invite visitors to take home their own portrait photo – a Polaroid I will take of them, of course – based on a baroque vanitas subject.

TransHumance – Toward the precipitation of Self

“Wearable high-tech, augmented reality, cybernetic prostheses, microchip implants, are the first steps of the transhumanism that herds human beings like cattle toward an alleged human-machine singularity. Does the human being desires to be free from the natural body’s caducity? What is the meaning of preserving the individual’s intellect in cyberspace? Which perspectives would immortality offer? Wouldn’t be more desirable to train our natural body and our innate potentialities relying on the resources and rebirth capability offered by nature?

The group art exhibition curated by Abramo Tepes Montini features digital and traditional painting, photography, graphics and video artworks by Iryna Calinicenco, Bobby Kim Ling Chen, Andrew Cheung, Martin Del Carpio, Elina, Ian Haig, Magdalena Hejzlarová, Erika Kassnel-Henneberg, Lucien.Art, Jeremy Pellington, Nina Sumarac, Shaharee Vyaas and Andrzej Wojciechowski.

In the previous group exhibition, entitled Escapism, we addressed the issue about the always more penetrating and totalitarian oppression and control exerted on the individual by the political and governmental system, which implements the old method of “carrot and stick” to forcedly push the masses. If the “stick” is oppression, TransHumance wants to investigate one of the brand new “carrots” that today the system of power tries to feed to peoples: the trivial benefits of a transition toward the digitalisation and the artificial sophistication of the person, as a prodrome of transhumanism, leading to epochal anthropological implications and prime philosophic and ethical dilemmas.

The transhumanism would be an ideology that, starting from the union between man and the robotic and/or computer machine into the so-called “singularity”, would shift mankind toward another phase, a goal: the post-humanism, that is an era where the natural human being will be outdated, extinct, evolved into something that will not be human any more, since the prefix post- itself always specify the end of an era, in this case of the human being.” Text: Tepes Montini

Utopia on the Horizon

StartExhibitionPage 2

In 2022, the Augsburg District Art Prize in the category of two-dimensional visual arts was awarded for the first time to two artists: Andrea Sandner, who uses colourful stripes to create multi-layered colour spaces in her paintings, and Erika Kassnel-Henneberg, who reflects on complex themes such as memory, identity and homeland in her overall multimedia work. The special exhibition at the Swabian Gallery is thus dedicated to two artists from the Augsburg district who could hardly be more different.

Am Horizont Utopia invites you to engage in the contemplative effect of Andrea Sandner’s Horizons and Poles, to follow the visual rhythm of the colour sounds. In the context of this important group of works, other series by the artist such as architectures and overpainted photographs are shown.

The large room on the upper floor offers an insight into Erika Kassnel-Henneberg’s diverse oeuvre. In video works, collages and objects, the Romanian-born artist deals not only with role models, but also with her own origins, the question of identity and the significance of memories.

L’Œil d’Oodaaq-Festival

StartExhibitionPage 2

11 to 20 Mai 2023, Capsule Gallery, Rennes / FR

“The Oodaaq Festival has existed since 2011. Every year, it offers an artistic journey through the city of Rennes. It brings together exhibitions, video art screenings, performances, installations in the public space, conferences and round tables around nomadic and poetic images.

Through its programming, L’Œil d’Oodaaq questions the place of the image in today’s society and the way in which artists take up contemporary problems and issues of society. L’Œil d’Oodaaq is interested in all the stages of existence of the image, from its construction to its reception and circulation, as well as its recent mutations in the digital age. The association has coined the expression “nomadic and poetic image”, reflecting the shifting, multiple and reflexive nature of the images it wishes to highlight.

The Oodaaq Festival aims to be a space for meetings and cross-fertilisation around these reflections on images and their media. For the 2023 edition, the festival will be mainly devoted to video art with a particular interest in works that question contemporary struggles (ecofeminism, feminism(s), social and ecological struggles…). At the heart of its programming, videos will be presented in the context of programme screenings containing several works, exhibitions, autonomous installations, showcases and salons.”
