Cirkulacija 2 u Zagrebu, 7. junij 2012 – 14. junij 2012
Mesto: galerija Močvara
Koprodukcija: Cirkulacija 2 &  Kontejner & Močvara

Po zaključenem projektu smo izjemno zadovoljni z rezultati (in procesi) in bi se tudi želeli vsem sodelujočim zahvaliti!

So-far, this was our most fruitful experience – also on the level of the gallery space, the help and trust provided/ given by the gallery Pogon Jedinstvo, Močvara and the coproducer Kontejner.

Kontejner women (Tereza, Ivana and Ena) provided exemplary support  before and during the project.

The Jedinstvo gallery is huge but not overstuffed with cranes and equipment. The basic equipment was superb for our needs. We could comfortably organize the space with objects, projections and working situation. The working situation was symbolically composed as circle in the middle of the space – with various additions to it for extra projects (Azot, IMM, ueber V.K.).

Again it was proved that one needs the support of local scene – if one deals with any kind of social structures. The IMM Media Lab people and Azot group added to the project with their participation. While the sacred wish was to include the local artists as constituent part of the project, this did not happen. Mostly on account of time economy of the people from Zagreb (home is always the “normalized” situation – everyday life demands).

The workshops as part of communication activities mostly remained a potentiality – except on Sunday. However, the potentialities are possibilities that can – but do not have to – pop-up.

Another such potentiality was the discoursive event on Sunday, which was supposed to shed some light on the conceptual reasons for such a project (the personal historical flashbacks and the potential different views). A decision to force the event to realisation was not made – not enough visitors at the time to provide the event with some basic social economy.

Azot performance on Monday was totally regular on aesthetic level. But it was quite clear that it was a performance of a group/ a band. In the descriptive words of horizontal / vertical coordinate system – it was a vertical addition. Vertical and horizontal are not qualitative definitions but descriptive ones.

IMM Media Lab participation on tuesday was different, since they brought a number of objects that were scattered over the gallery. Their participation was much bolder – claiming the space. In my view (Borut) this was a horizontal addition to the project.

Neven Korda had a performance just before the tuesday IMM intervention.  It was half-way over until visitors registered it. As a tipically vertical intervention by one-man-band it would need the necessary introductory flow to bring it to the ritual level of artistic performance. But this at the time was impossible – the forcing of it would kill all the lively activities around the place.

ueber V.K. (300.000 V.K. and two people from C2) on wednesday was predictably a very vertical cut. A concert with dramaturgy and all the (classic) rituals associated with it. As such it stood out and this was very clear to both participants and visitors who experienced also some of the other days.

Borut’s conclusion would be that horizontal approaches bring in some very satisfactory communal feelings – also for the visitors. The aestethic output is not that important. There is a clear distinction between the vertical cuts and the horizontal approaches. Vertical cuts are made to force the gaze (and ear), the horizontal are less demanding – the gaze (and ear) can be fragmented. There is a difference also on the level of participants’ and visitors’ evaluation. Evaluation (the piece was good, the band played ok,… etc.) also to a large extent belongs to vertical interventions. In horizontal interventions it can be variously good or bad – not at all necessary for individual to evaluate immediately. In horizontal situations thing can happen (but do not have to) – in vertical they are set to happen (and they must). The dictate of conventional is heavy.

There is also the big question of where is art. While it is clear that vertical interventions play the “art game” conventionally – this is not the case with horizontal interventions. The tools and expressions can be the same but the concept is totally different. The most simple answer can be that art is the horizontal platform itself. This of course was envisioned years ago – that’s why the title  Total art platform.

Tematika: NOISE (najšire: kao metafora; i konkretno – u estetskom izrazu)

U praksi to znači bazični pristup na nivou ZVUKA, što bi trebalo biti dovoljno komunikativno, da se može računati na sudjelovanje zainteresiranih zagrebačkih umjetnika. Ali širina koncepta bi trebala omogučiti razne intervencije, jer inače se bez potrebe lokaliziramo na goloj estetskoj formi, a to smanjuje potencijal sudjelovanja. U biti je druženje i izmenjivanje i upoznavanje preko estetskih praksi i na nivoju izrazivanja osobnih motiva prava želja projekta.

Može se naravno i šire razmišljati o metafori “open source code”-a kao načina kreiranja dogovorene realnosti (što preko nekog vremena dobija ime “konvencija”). Ali mi bi te definicije trebali tek početi usvajati, što znači da još skoro ništa nije dogovoreno i da nova konvencija još i ne postoji. Što i nije baš istina, jer se konvencije slagaju jedna na drugu – i prekrivaju, a važeča konvencija što se tiče NOISE-a uredjena je na način, da je vrednost veoma mala ili čak ne postoji – odmahuje se rukom; nula.

Što se ZVUKA tiče, stanje razumjevanja je malo bolje, zbog toga polazimo iz te točke.

Cirkuacija 2 je u posljedne vrijeme imala neke dogadjaje formulirane kao SOCIAL NOISE SESSION, a to znači kombinirani koncept ljudskog druženja, organiziranja na nivoju tekučeg dogovaranja, što bi trebalo prevaziči pasivnu izložbu i uvesti aktivnu socijalnu/ ljudsku trenutačnu platformu. U toj platformi sve što se postigne putem dogovora se smatra kao stvar intelekta, ljudske inteligencije, a ono što se ne može dogovoriti smatra se suprotno tome.

U takvoj aktivnoj situaciji najviše trpi sinhronizacija vanjskih participanata – publike, jer ne postoji diktat programa (program je diktat za aktivne participante, a za pasivne to je bitna mogučnost uključivanja…). To bi znači trebali uključiti i donekle početi sa kreiranjem programa “pre nego što bude prekasno”, ali istotako omogučiti tekuče improvizacije/ adaptacije jer one znači “život”, živi moment.

Bazična programacija bi znači trebala biti dogovorena prije početka, da se bez problema može informirati publikum i medije.

Znači to bi mogli biti elementi:
– koncert, performens
– prezentacija, debata
– radionica
– večera (prva i posljednja?)

A u praksi se kasnije tome može dodati još živih elemenata.

Estetski izrazi i tehnologije

Veliki prostor galerije Močvara bi jasno trebali napuniti. To če se na vizualnom polju najviše raditi sa svetlostnim izvorima (različiti projektori, laseri i različiti pristupi u maniri NOISE koncepta – što su i biti kibernetski pristupi). Neki vezani na kompjutere kao generatore, a neki više analogno. Ono što žele članovi Cirkulacije 2 pripremiti prije dolaska jesu zvučne mobilne platforme (avtonomno mobilni zvučnici), što bi predstavljalo interakciju sa statičnim rezonantnim prostorom galerije i mobilizaciju zvuka (zvuk se pomiče…). Nešto od toga se može napraviti i pomoču projekcijskih zvučnika. Sve to če biti prototipski sistemi i rad na njima če biti i deo izložbe. Ali ne prevalentni – sve to mora biti spremno.

Tehnika:

Osnovni zvučni sistem donosimo sa sobom. On zadovoljava naše kriterije ali možda ne i kriterije zagrebačkih participanata.

Trebali bi nekoliko video projektora. Mi donosimo tri ili četiri.

Mize, stolovi, stolice. Nekakva mogučnost stolica za javne debate. Stolovi za pripremu hrane, itd.
