Combined tour: ARTIFICIAL TEARS and Work it, feel it

Selected works from two exhibitions are the basis of this guided tour, where visitors will discover the challenge of “humanness” in times of artificial intelligence and learn how contemporary artists see notions of work now and in the future.

The starting point of the combined tour is a walkthrough of the exhibition ARTIFICIAL TEARS. Singularity & Humanness—A Speculation at the MAK. Quoting from a chapter of human history yet to be written, the exhibition is a plea for humanity, for the resilience and variability of the human condition, and the significance of remembering and forgetting.
Our guide will bring you to the second exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz. The exhibition Work it, feel it! revolves around notions of work and body— now and in the future. Learn how contemporary artists take a critical approach towards this topic. One that is informed by a profound examination of historical and current disciplinary mechanisms shaping society.

Cost: MAK Admission ticket + € 3,50

Admission ticket Kunsthalle Wien: € 3, tour free of charge

Meeting point: MAK, Stubenring 5, 1010 Vienna

Ergonomic Futures

Ergonomic Futures is a multi-part project that asks questions about contemporary "fitness" through the lens of speculative evolution. What are future scenarios for imagining new types of human bodies, and how might this thought experiment reframe conversations about body normativity in the present day?

What are future scenarios for imagining new types of human bodies, and how might this thought experiment reframe conversations about body normativity in the present day?

The lecture-performance comes out of Tyler Coburn's interviews with paleoanthropologists, ergonomists, evolutionary biologists, and genetic engineers. The event is held in English.

Urban Wilderness Workspace

Here in the urban wilderness there are a number of things to explore:...

A lot can be produced out of the materials found: wind wheels, an obstacle course, a yurt or a wilderness goddess. The program is open but offers suggestions and stimuli. The surroundings encourage you to think about the differences between designed space and wasteland. Is something lacking here? How many facilities do we need? And what kind of open space? At what point do we feel that design is giving instructions and imposing restrictions?

Over a period of two weeks an adventure garden will be built, which we will open at 1pm on 28.7. We will take what we have made with us and then leave the place to its own resources again. 

Cost: € 5,60 / € 4 with Ferienspiel-Pass
