Both paula roush/msdm
(mobile strategies of display & mediation)
and the Ultra-red group
(for EAR APPEAL, Dont Rhine and Manuela Bojadˇzijev) used the Kunsthalle as a meeting place
and discussion venue.
radio took on the role of postproduction
as well as that of publication and distribution.
After periods in London and Leipzig,
London artist paula roush localized her Protest Academy in the show in Vienna as a vital structure for cooperation, exchange, education, and information-gathering
about audio tactics that articulate social
or political resistance.
When does sound become information and protest?
As the setting for a workshop
and as an installation in the exhibition,
visitors had access to the protest archive
begun in London in 2005
containing newspaper articles,
CDs with songs of protest and peace,
an opera libretto,
theoretical text by Toni Negri and Gilles Deleuze,
and a variety of projects and documentation
by artists including Oliver Ressler,
Temporary Services, and Melanie Jackson.
