RHIZOM

RHIZOM is permanently established in Graz and conceives itself as a non-hierarchically organized collective. RHIZOM features the infracultural background for individual and collective artistic autonomy.

Our work focuses on international projects of cultural exchange on the one hand and on local conditions and ongoing events on the other. RHIZOM pursues intuitive, transdisciplinary and participatory context-art. The objective is to make our own cultural concepts more transparent, to perceive the “very different beast”, to find new points of contact and to connect what has not been connected in that specific way before. The artistic approach follows a process-oriented, open conceptual design, in which medial possibilities are being tested allowing for on-site reaction. In the end it is content which determines the medium.

Issues of form, conditions and value of non-commercial art-work are integral parts of RHIZOM-art.

c. Circumambulation of the form.
Floor language clay
Space installation

In the course of a stamping & dance performance, the clay applied around a formwork mould is processed. The different types of movement reproduce the pattern and structure of the encircling. They become the text for questioning the material – a floor language. This can be used to construct a thought building.

d. Getting down to the nitty gritty –
Practices of self-determined living

A book project (analogue & digital)

In this discourse, which is conducted by practitioners of various forms of self-organization in Austria on a highly self-reflexive level, (thought-) spaces are opened up in order to make accessible and also shareable the complex structural situations that these projects plough through in reality: the individual and the communal, self-determined living and housing, communal economies, dealing with our resources and much more. Other reactions to precarious living conditions, such as squatting, will also be addressed.

Involved: Representatives from the habiTAT network (A) such as SchloR (Vienna), Willy*Fred (Linz) and Cambium - Leben in Gemeinschaft (Fehring), as well as Mira Palmisano, former part of the Hofkollektiv Wieserhoisl (Deutschlandsberg), Tina T., experiences from various squats and in the RHIZOM context Flo Sorgo, Milo Strauss, Bettina Landl, Sanela Pansinger, H.J. Schubert, Leo Kreisel-Strausz.
