Based on investigations on how to orientate oneself at the borderline of noise and signal (e.g. the installation "Navigating Noise") and on the just released interdisciplinary publication "Navigating Noise" (ed. Nathanja van Dijk, Kerstin Ergenzinger, Sebastian Schwesinger and Christian Kassung), the Salon "Acts of Orientation" questions as well the notion of rhythm as a middle force between regularity and chaos as the role of gaps and lines in orientation processes such as sensing, recording, reconstructing, translating and interpreting.

Starting with an experimental concert: "Listening to Spacetime Poetry", performed by custom-made thermal printers,  the evening tries to blend practical and theoretical thinking by offering a choreographed sequence of presented works in process that enter into dialogue with the different perspectives of the contributing guests.

    Navigating Noise" means getting off the beaten track in order to find, or rather, to create something new. This publication is the result of such unconventional navigations, which follow the track of noise on its path across art, science, and the humanities. The point of departure is the artwork Navigating Noise by artist Kerstin Ergenzinger and phyisist Thomas Laepple. This ephemeral, somewhat out-worldly sound installation provides the framework for a collection of academic and artistic contributions that address the need for alternative means of orientation to deal with noise and to understand and (re)establish our unstable position within a highly technologized, mediated, and globalized reality. These navigations cover a broad terrain of research: from the starry skies to the deep oceans, from the ice cores of Greenland to sonic navigation in the animal kingdom, from spatial acoustics in World War I to noise music. Through a multidisciplinary approach, Navigating Noise paves the way for unexpected connections between research domains located

    VOLTO ist eine neue Reihe mit Kunstinstallationen in der Heilig-Geist-Kirche in Rosenheim, die einmal jährlich stattfindet. VOLTO, im Italienischen das Antlitz, das Aussehen, nimmt Bezug auf das bedeutsame Fresko "Volto Santo" in der Heilig-Geist-Kirche und reflektiert das Bild des Menschen. Es werden aktuelle künstlerische Positionen gezeigt, die zur räumlichen wie spirituellen Dimension des Kirchenraumes in Bezug treten.

    Raumtaster von Kerstin Ergenzinger (Berlin) bestehen aus modifizierten Tageslichtprojektoren. Sie kreieren Lichtbalken und Lichtflächen, die Wände, Boden und Decke abtasten und durch gegenläufige Bewegungen den Raum in seiner architektonischen und inhaltlichen Ausdehnung neu erfahrbar machen. Die Reihe wird veranstaltet von der Erzdiözese München und Freising, Fachbereich Kunstpastoral in Zusammenarbeit mit der katholischen Kirchenstiftung St. Nikolaus, Rosenheim.

    Museum of Transformation is a contemporary art-project by Tessa Knapp in the frame of German-Georgian Year 2017 that transforms State Silk Museum into a museum of change. In reference to the museums' collection, artists follow the metaphor of the cocoon as a continuous process of transformation, creating an alternative vision of what a contemporary museum could be.

    Exhibition: 06.10.2017 – 18.10.2017

    Touch Me Festival 2017: The Invisible Around Us refers to hidden events and phenomena that cannot reach us at any degree of perceptual significance. What are the invisibles and the unknowns that construct our universe? How can the traces of hidden realities be guessed? What does science provide and how can non-systematic languages contribute to this search? How can we imagine something that is there but exists beyond our comprehension? And how can they be imagined and thought of as multiple identities and non-scientific forms?

    Myopian Survey

    Lecture @ Salon Digital HFK Bremen

    • 15.05.17 | 18:00h

      Myopian Survey started as a conceptual and physical exploration of the idea of nature, in particular of the North Amercian landscape and the ambivalent topos of the American 'wilderness'. During this Salon I will enfold and partly stage some of the tracks and bypasses I encountered and explored walking along a line of thoughts and analogies.

    We close our festival with a special selection of abstract films produced in the land where Absolute Cinema originated back in the early 1920s.

    Curated and introduced by artist and curator Robert Seidel, the programme offers a fascinating journey through German abstract cinema of the last 18 years.

    Fluctuating between fine art, pure experiments, music videos and material originally intended for video installations as well as live performances we are experiencing the diversity of the non-representational image in today's hybrid world.

    DE PLAYER and A Tale of a Tub present a live event with Lendl Barcelos (UK), Daniel Burkhardt (DE), Gonçalo F. Cardoso (PT) & Ruben Pater (NL) and Kerstin Ergenzinger (DE). Lendl Barcelos – theorist and musician – will give a reading based on his research in 'new sensitivities' in search of radicalized forms of listening leading towards alternative forms of orientation. Curator Nathanja van Dijk will speak with artists Kerstin Ergenzinger and Daniel Burkhardt about their work that will be on show throughout the evening. Gonçalo F. Cardoso & Ruben Pater will present their project 'A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics'': an electro-acoustic narrative of figurative connections between bird calls and streaking drone sonics, whilst also attempting to find the human element in these unmanned aircrafts.

    The exhibition is part of the interdisciplinary research project Acts of Orientation by artist Kerstin Ergenzinger, physicist Thomas Laepple, and curator Nathanja van Dijk. In collaboration with the Humboldt University and the Schering Stiftung (Berlin) they investigate forms of orientation in our technologized world from a spatial-physical as well as natural science and humanities perspective.

    A body, and so as well a space, is not consisting in heaviness, hardness, colour or similar, but solely in extension. (René Descartes)

    For ortsflüchtig the visual artist Kerstin Ergenzinger creates a kinetic-interactive room installation, which is stage set as well as performing counterpart. A new and constantly changing space within space for the dancer and choreographer Johanna Roggan, the live musician Daniel Williams and the audience at the same time, invites us to think up, to imagine, to affect our own different spaces.

    land use poetics

    international workshop on spatial practices, technologies and imaginaries - Museum of Sketches Lund 2009

    new work at land-use-poetics

    What is concealed behind the physical planning term ”land use”?
    This is the question in this cross-disciplinary project, engaging ten artist and researchers from around the world. In an intense, four day workshop, and through the use of arts-based “methods” or poetic practice, the group will examine how we humans affect the land we have at our disposal.
    The area of investigation is delimited to the intensely exploited and at the same time historically complex landscape between Malmö and Lund. Here, agriculture, shipping, and industry, already left non-erasable imprints. Today, however, also entirely different kinds of activities leave traces and dislocate meanings.
    Through different forms of spatial engagement – bus tours, walks, gathering of specimens, study visits and discussions – these traces and meanings will be explored, scrutinized and mapped out.
    The result – or the more or less sketchy findings – will be on show at the Museum of Sketches in Lund.

    Kerstin Ergenzinger, Nigel Green and Robin Wilson, Maria Hellström, Jane Philbrick, Gunnar Sadin, Meike Schalk and Apolonija Sustersic, Staffan Schmidt

    The show will open Sun March 22 at 2 pm, followed by an open panel discussion on landscape change and arts-based research at 3 pm.
