Joseph De Lappe: In Drones We Trust! (2014-)

Skupinska intervencija
Artefakt: serija 3 štampiljk

Skupinska intervencija In Drones We Trust! Josepha DeLappa, ki poteka od leta 2014 v ZDA in v Evropi, z minimalnim posegom na bankovcih vabi obiskovalce k tiskanju političnih motivov na svoj denar. Na voljo so trije motivi: ‘In Drones We Trust’ je štampiljka MQ1 Predator drona. Sprva je bil opremljen s kamerami, kasneje pa nadgrajen s strelnim orožjem. Letalo je bilo v uporabi v Afganistanu, Pakistanu, Siriji, Libiji, Somaliji, v Jemnu, Iraku, Srbiji in Bosni. ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’ je navdihnila podoba dvignjenih rok, ki spremlja demonstracije in nemire povezane z različnimi oblikami nasilja nad afroameriškimi moškimi iz strani ameriške policije. ‘Sea Level Rising’ pa z motivom morja opozarja na klimatske spremembe in naraščajočo morsko gladino.

Joseph DeLappe deluje v prostoru novih medijev in elektronike od leta 1983, njegovi kipi, elektromehanične instalacije in performansi v spletnih igricah so bile obširno razstavljene v ZDA in po svetu. Leta 2006 je začel s projektom ‘dead-in-iraq’ z namenom zapisa vseh imen ameriških vojaških žrtev v Iraški vojni v spletno igrico ameriške vojske, narejene z namenom rekrutiranja novincev v svoje vrste. Nedavno je s škotskim kolektivom Biome razvil interaktivno računalniško igrico ‘Killbox’ o vojskovanju z brezpilotnimi letali, ki je bila nominirana s strani Bafte za najboljšo video igrico.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
