Curated by Jurgen Ostarhild

Freely adapted from Marcus Steinweg's philosophy of
precipitancy, Samples (Überstürztes Hängen*) proves
the possibility of a concurrence of precision and excess.
The works haven't emerged from unique technical skills
but from sampling found photos, found video footage,
motorbike parts and computer code and are solely
chosen by the artists. Not having seen one of the
artworks previous to the exhibition, Jurgen Ostarhild
intentionally exposes himself to a loss of control thus
during the process of hanging, the communication
between the artists, the speculative he experiences as
outsider who is only documenting, he creates a
precision that demands art instead of aesthetics.

*precipitous hanging

open : Sat November 22nd, 2014 (one day only)

Samples (Überstürztes Hängen) erprobt frei nach
Marcus Steinwegs Philosophie der Überstürzung die
Möglichkeit einer Gleichzeitigkeit von Präzision und
Exzess. Die Arbeiten gehen auf keine einzigartigen
handwerklichen Fähigkeiten zurück, vielmehr sind sie
aus gefundenen Fotografien , found video footage,
Motoradteilen und Computercode zusammengesamplet
und wurden allein von den KünstlerInnen ausgewählt.
Indem er keine der Arbeiten vor Beginn der Ausstellung
gesehen hat, setzt sich Jurgen Ostarhild gezielt einem
Kontrollverlust aus und erzeugt im Prozess des
Hängens, der Kommunikation der KünstlerInnen
untereinander, dem Spekulativen, den er als
Aussenstehender erlebt und dokumentiert, eine
Präzision, die Kunst statt Ästhetik einfordert.

in progress: the Hoorn constellations

Andreas Templin and Andreas L. Hofbauer currently conduct a research-project at HMK Hoorn

'Systemic constellation' or simple 'constellation' labels a process related tool, which is used both in a therapeutic field and as a decision model for several areas of application such as script writing or management agendas. Noninvolved proxies or agents re-enact in a special environment (unconscious and unknown) relations of influence, power, dependency, domination and so on in certain time and space frames. 
„The Hoorn constellations“ pays no interest on such benchmarks, ideological or therapeutic, to optimize whatsoever. In fact it is an operational system. Communications as operations generate social systems. Elements (institutions, complex positions like „artist“, „museum“, „artwork“ etc.) communicate here and generate / mirror in doing so the homeostasis of the artworld which transforms itself in a sort of homeodynamics of the conditions of production, representation and economics of art (the state of contemporary art).

In a neutral space (white cube) a kind of dance is staged. The choreography follows the dynamic questionnaire of the public enquirers, who ask their questions in advance. The questions shall be a public reflection on the production, representation and economy conditions of art in all areas. From the fabrication of an art piece, its public representation to its marketing and branding at present and in the future. Variable arrangements of systemic constellation and interaction are staged as a field of vision, which become a contemporary critical tool of understanding. 

The constellations of these questions have been filmed with two hd-cameras, which will develop (with interviews of the agents) to single-channel videoworks.
