The Centre for Cybernetic Culture Circulation believes in the present (and future) and does not see itself as a mere rendering of past events, nonetheless its program is following a given line of historical milestones upon which it refers.
In the frame of CCCC´s residency the second week: SWAMP can be correlated with the historical milestone of 1938. The second Stage is represented as a SWAMP as it was 1938 when the autonomies of both, Austria and Czech republic were stagnated by the an authoritarian occupation. This marked for both countries an end to any effective and liberated flow of cultural, social and even economical exchange between the neighboring countries.
A phenomena that can be described as liquid and solid is therefore a good metaphor for an annexation of sovereign countries that was accomplished without official resistance but was still accompanied by a gigantic wave of structural and physical violence.
It is no wonder that in nature, swamps are home of mostly amphibian creatures that evolved in a way that allows them to live both, on land and under water.
The CCCC curated an exhibition where the main topic is the transgression of borders in the contemporary art context of Austria and Czech republic. For this, the CCCC invited artists that try to reinterpret the boundaries given by mediality and materiality thus opening a space where boundaries can be reinterpreted leaving geographical attachment behind.
Open until 8.5.2018
