Superflex
http://www.superflex.dk/
The Danish artists' group Superflex (Rasmus Nielsen, Jakob Fenger and Bjornstjerne Christiansen) has been working together since 1993 on a series of projects related to economic forces, democratic production conditions and self-organisation. The artists have examined alternative energy and commodity production in Brazil, Thailand and Europe in their projects, which both expose and question the existing economic structures. These artistic activities as, for example, the on-going project Guarana power, in which the artists developed a drink together with local farmers who cultivate the caffeine-rich berries of the guarana plant are not necessarily opposed to commercialism and globalisation, but try instead to render economic structures visible and to establish a new balance between producers and consumers. They describe their projects as tools. Assisted by experts who bring in their respective special interest, which can then be further utilized and modified by their users.

Taller Popular de Serigrafia (no website in English at least-Maybe in Spanish?) The legendary Taller de Gráfica Popular (Popular Printmaking Workshop) is represented in the exhibition with an engraving by Leopoldo Méndez (1902–1969), one of its leading members. This post-Revolutionary collective produced politically motivated work that has continued to inspire activist art, including Argentina's present-day Taller Popular de Serigrafía (Popular Silkscreen Workshop). In both cases the nature of this activism has been centered on the conditions of laborers.

Taring Padi collective. When Taring Padi first formed in December 1998, the collective could have been mistaken for the cultural wing of the defunct Indonesian Communist Party. At the time, Taring Padi went by the title Institute of People-Oriented Culture, and released a cultural manifesto that outlined a platform it dubbed `The Five Cultural Evils': a rap on anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism, anti-militarism, anti-feudalism and anti-elitism. Taring Padi was planned along the lines of a mock politburo and numerous other bureaus that tackled matters of pedagogy, dissemination, agitation, propaganda, ethical conduct, and housekeeping. They even appointed a Taring Padi `President', who was divested of any real power, and thus performed as a plesetan or parody of the long-standing Indonesian President Suharto who by popular demand had finally relinquished grip of his thirty-two year military reign in May 1998.

Tercerunquinto (meaning in English something like ‘a third of a fifth’) is the collective project of Mexican artists Julio Castro Carreón, Gabriel Cázares Salas and Rolando Flores Tovar. Formed in 1996, the collective is responsible for dozens of actions designed, in their words, ‘to question the boundaries between private and public space, examining the organized frontiers around the constitution of such definitions’. In the past Tercerunquinto’s projects have taken the form of architectural or infrastructural interventions that aim to create or ‘amplify’ freedoms still present in an administrated and compromised reality.

Time's Up - http://www.timesup.org

Laboratory for the construction of experimental situations.

Founded in 1996, Time's Up has its principal locus in the Linz harbour of Austria.

".... it takes all the running you can do, just to stay in place." - ´The Red Queen effect´

Time's Up believe that pop science will never satisfactorily explain the reactions of the individual to their dependence upon biomechanics, control, perception and their resulting chain reactions. Together with international specialists (artists, researchers, biomechanics, etc.) Time's Up produces situations that investigate the impact of these three factors upon the individual. They choose a form of situationist research, the re-appropriated term pseudo/science is carried as a tocsin to those who expect dullard institutionalization or foundationless fantasy.


TNWK’s work focusses on conversation and participation, to produce ‘portraits of value’ (exploring tensions between the societal, the communal and the political), using a diversity rather than a singularity of modes and media.

TNWK is a collaborative authorship of poetic and visual practices. Kirsten Lavers and cris cheek bring specialist histories in poetry, site-specific installation and situated cultural practice; their common grounds include performance, bookworks, photography, video and curatorial intervention.

TNWK refresh conventions around portraiture, in works that nod towards the eighteenth century conversation piece; small-scale group portraits of people sharing common activities. TNWK (an acronym drawn from early work made as Things Not Worth Keeping) re-locate the portrait as documenting neighborhoods of the everyday, the intersections between people, things, places and specific moments in time.

TNWK produce ‘objects’ that spark conversation about value.

Intimate Transactions is inspired and directed by an examination of what Dr. Liz Baker calls ecological subjectivity; a sense of self that is intimately relational, embodied and embedded. Intimate Transactions is hence underpinned by ideas synthesized from theories of critical ecology, ecological subjectivities and the systemic flow of energy and matter within scientifically defined ecologies. It therefore questions how might principles of ecological science and philosophy lead to the evolution of new forms of process, practice and outcome in the media arts. These key ideas have long steered director Keith Armstrong's work.

To achieve this Intimate Transactions brings together, explores and dissects ideas and practices from the media arts, interactive design, performance, telematics, interactive sound-scape design, custom electronics, furniture design and alternate human-computer interfaces.

Tucuman Arde (Tucuman is burning) are a group of avant-garde artists, formed in 1967, who hold a legendary status in Argentina for their pioneering attempts to create a counter-discourse in art. They aimed to dissolve barriers between artistic and political action and went to the troubled province of Tucuman to create an archive of images, interviews and other material which documented the crisis unfolding there: they were rewarded for their efforts by sharp police repression. Tucuman Arde disbanded in 1969 and Ex Argentina marks one of their first forays back into the process of making art after years of exile, obscurity and repression under the dictatorship.

Over 30 years since the original archive was created de Bruijne went to Tucuman and took a new series of photographs of the people there, some of whom he had already worked with in a previous project with cartoneros in Buenos Aires. De Bruijne’s 2005 photographs have an eerily similar feel to those taken in the 1960s, both emanate a powerful sense of radical humanism. The social conditions which are clearly apparent in both sets of photos confirms the message in a stencil which has appeared on the streets of Buenos Aries ‘Tucuman sague ardaeno’ ( Tucuman is still burning).

Ultra-Red http://www.ultrared.org/directory.html
Activist art has come to signify a particular emphasis on appropriated aesthetic forms whose political content does the work of both cultural analysis and cultural action. The art collaboration Ultra-red propose a political-aesthetic project that reverses this model. If we understand organizing as the formal practices that build relationships out of which people compose an analysis and strategic actions, how might art contribute to and challenge those very processes? How might those processes already constitute aesthetic forms?

In the worlds of sound art and modern electronic music, Ultra-red pursue a fragile but dynamic exchange between art and political organizing. Founded in 1994 by two AIDS activists, Ultra-red have over the years expanded to include artists, researchers and organisers from different social movements including the struggles of migration, anti-racism, participatory community development, and the politics of HIV/AIDS.

Collectively, the group have produced radio broadcasts, performances, recordings, installations, texts and public space occupations (ps/o). Exploring acoustic space as enunciative of social relations, Ultra-red take up the acoustic mapping of contested spaces and histories utilising sound-based research (termed Militant Sound Investigations) that directly engage the organizing and analyses of political struggles.

Ultra-red's ten associates in North America and Europe work within a variety of ambiences conducting Militant Sound Investigations of the spaces of needle exchange (Soundtrax, 1992 - 1996), public sex (Second Nature, 1995 - 1998), public housing (Structural Adjustments, 1997 - 2003), resistance to global capital (Value System, 1998 - 2003), labor (Social Factory, 1997 - 2002), education (School of Echoes, 2001 - Present), anti-racism and migration struggles (Surveying The Future, 2001 - Present), and HIV/AIDS (SILENT|LISTEN, 2005 - Present). The group also runs the fair-use online record label, Public Record.

Union Media Servies
But Burn had an artistic career both before and after this period. Before, his work evolved from early traditional landscapes and self-portraits into increasingly abstract and, beginning in 1965, Minimalist paintings. These led to Conceptual art works and installations which then motivated his participation in the Art & Language group. After Art & Language disbanded, he seemed to disappear from the international scene. In fact he returned to Australia in 1977 to work for the Australian labor movement through a small company, Union Media Services. There he organized cultural programming for trade union members, curated exhibitions of their art work and wrote related essays and commentaries. He published articles on Anglo-Australian landscape painting and on Albert Namatjira, an Aboriginal artist of the Aranda (Arrernte) tribe. In addition, Ian was well known as a careful and demanding writer on and curator of contemporary art, and he served as unofficial advisor to several dissertations in esthetics and art history at Australian universities.
