Réservoirs – the guest_*talks series 2010/11
:
The guest_*talks series Réservoirs at the F+F School of Art and Media Design in Zurich offers short cuts to money, value and art and presents models for discussion that go beyond the production of classical values.
:
Without belief and trust neither financial management nor art would exist. Credit comes from credo and means 'I believe'. A financial system subject to a crisis of confidence is doomed to collapse. The classical artist—who since the Renaissance has, next to God, assumed the role of creator—does not live from his profession but, as always, from his higher calling. The Medici, a dynasty of bankers and patrons of the arts, had already set the example of a link between money, value and art and, by financing art, used the reverence for Christ as a lever for breaking the power of the Vatican. Political and symbolic power is as ever reinforced by capital reserves, which must first of all be generated. The European colonial empires since the 15th century as well as the world powers after World War II had assured an access, above all, to cheap labor and raw material. Taking such reservoirs into account is what, even today, enables the accumulation of added value.

RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co): Reservoir News
:
As a lead-in to the new guest_*talks series 2010/11, Marie-Antoinette Chiarenza and Daniel Hauser of RELAX will introduce their video work Reservoir News (29', HDV, 2010). It is the product of their performative installation hit the ground! at the Passengers Festival 'money for nothing' 2009 in the financial district of Warsaw. At its center stands the failed attempt to rescue the local financial industry from collapse via art. The video work traces the possible dimensions of wealth and the theological aspects of the banking system and the financial industry.
:
RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co), artist's group Zurich. Last represented at exhibitions at Cornerhouse Manchester (2010), Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende, Arte Contemporaneo, Santiago de Chile (2010), Kunstmuseum Bern (2011). www.relax-studios.ch
