Experience Experiment 2005
@ Hangar 1018
Hangar 1018, Baseline Project, & SCReW Present:
Experiment 2005 brings together virtuoso experimentalists from Los Angeles and

imagination worldwide. Vienna is a city of music and L.A. the capital of the
moving image, but what happens when Vienna's leading experimental video artists
meet some of L.A.'s most progressive DJs and producers. Show up to find out,
sample traditional warm mulled wine or "Gluehwein" and make yourself
part of the celebration.

REDESTRUKT is an Austrian based visuals crew consisting

animation into a truly unique style. REDESTRUKT is part of the strukt visual
network and provides visual concepts for music festivals, media installations,
musical performances and club environments.
Vidok Collective (www.vidok.org)
Vidok was founded in 2000 in Vienna and the connecting element of the collective is the interest in experimental, reduced-abstract approaches, which in their visual aesthetics - either in a video, a webpage, CD-Rom or DVD - stand out as characteristic criterion of the approach. The collective's intense co-operation with musicians and music labels have entailed numerous projects such as music videos, record covers, internet sites, live-acts with projections, and thus is typical for the nonhierarchical crossover-works as group between the different areas of the electronic culture.
The manifold media embraced by the collective's work
enlarges the presentation modes and creates the possibility to act within
various contexts and question the narrow borders between the singular genres and
to redefine them always anew. The individual fields cover such different formats
as print, film, web design, programming, live-performances, installations, video
or DVD and build a bridge between art & design, fine arts & new media,
and entailed for the studio collective diverse projects with Vienna-based art
& culture institutions, such as Sixpackfilm, Museumsquartier, Kunsthalle, Künstlerhaus,
Medienwerkstatt, Diagonale or the magazine Springerin.
Monochrom is an art-technology-philosophy group of basket
weaving enthusiasts and theory do-it-yourselfers having its seat in Vienna and
Zeta Draconis. Monochrom is the super-affirmation of the globalization trap.
monochrom has existed in this (and every other) form since 1993.
monochrom is an open field of experimentation:
international art scene, panel discussion event
technology, souls bought and sold, game and shame shows, readings of the
dreariest sort, theory cocooning, film short processing, website squatters'
consultancy, alternative space travel projects, do-it-yourself surveillance
courses, riddle rallyes, ecumenical field services, overhead projector comics,
circumstantiation, Power Point fairytales, layouting and decomposition,
propagandistic summer camps, monumental puppet theater, aesthetic pregnancy
counseling, producing, promoting and destroying music, party service,
expressional dance, Biennial brawls, GDR rock, DJ events and lots more...
monochrom's mission, its passion and quasi-ontological
vocation, is primarily the collection, grouping, registration and querying
(liberation?) of the scar tissue represented by everyday cultural artifacts.
This mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost in
culture-archeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and
monochrom is: Johannes Grenzfurthner, Evelyn Fürlinger,
Frank Apunkt Schneider, Franky Ablinger, Anika Kronberger, Harald Homolka List,
Daniel Fabry and a whole lot of satellites.
"PRESERVING CULTURAL TRADITIONS IN A PERIOD OF INSTABILITY"
John & Henry Ford, alias Thomas Draschan & Sebastian Brameshuber
Austria, 2004 | 3 min | 35 mm | Color
Produktion: Amour Fou
Preserving Cultural Traditions in a Period of Instability
is a computer-generated video based on artifacts occurring during compression
procedures. A short hypnotic and monotonous sound-loop underlines the structural
character of the video footage, whilst a commentary by Stan Brakhage on the rise
of digital technologies and new media forms the second sound layer. (Thomas
Fordbrothers explode the visual field as a strangely
familiar, but unidentified, voice rails against computer technology and modern
society. (Mark Webber)
