should I stay or should I go

Comments Off on should I stay or should I go

===========================
Some remnants:
In an effort to add some fragments from previous
meetings. We are adding short descriptions that
were sent out as emails. Before March 2001, the meetings
were shared mainly through a mailing list we maintained.
Eventhough the remnants of correspondences
from 1999-2001 are fragmentary and incomplete,
they give an idea of the kinds of meetings which
were taking place and the different questions
and modes involved.

should I stay or should I go

strategies and goals of cultural politics in Austria
Monday, March 6, 2000 at 7 pm
panel discussion
presented by 16 Beaver Group and re:austria
@ Tanja Grunert and Klemens Gasser, Inc. 524 West 19th Street, btw. 10th
and 11 (212) 807 9494

With the recent political developments in Austria, artists and citizens
in many parts of the globe have grappled with the issue of response. How
does one respond to such an event? How does the international community
voice its reaction? The panel “should I stay or should I ago” will try
to investigate and discuss the strategies and goals of cultural politics
in Austria on Monday, the 6th of March, 7 pm at the Tanja Grunert and
Klemens Gasser Gallery, in Chelsea. Klemens and Tanja are generously
giving us their space.

“should I stay or should I go” is initiated by two collaboratives,
16Beaver Group and re:austria, both working to increase cultural and
political debate and to further the exchange of ideas and art in New
York (see note below). By organizing this panel we hope to raise
awareness of the gravity of the situation concerning Austria and to
foster a discussion about the range and efficacy of responses to these
recent political changes.

The following have agreed to participate:
Renee Green (artist US), Carola Dertnig (artist Austria/US), Robert
Fleck (critic and curator Austria/France), Christoph Thun Hohenstein
(ACI, NY) and Raimund Abraham (architect Austria/US). Moderator: Rene
Gabri
