ARTIST’S TALK
Georgia Tech, G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons
266 Fourth St. NW, Room 152, Atlanta, GA
We are the ones we have been waiting for
Co-sponsored by Goethe Zentrum / German Cultural Center Atlanta

Over the past decade, Oliver Ressler has developed a body of work related to the alter-globalization movement. In 2001, he produced a film on the kettling of demonstrators by the police at a demonstration against the World Economic Forum in Salzburg, Austria. The following year, he collaborated with Dario Azzellini on a film on the Disobbedienti, a direct-action Italian radical extraparliamentary group that grew out of the Tute Bianche and formed after the events surrounding the G8 conference in Genoa in 2001. In 2008, he released What Would It Mean To Win?, which was co-directed by Zanny Begg and documented the June 2007 G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany. Ressler was also involved in the self-organized collaborative art project HOLY DAMN IT, which produced 50,000 posters to mobilize against the G8 summit in Heiligendamm.

Besides these direct artistic interventions in political movements, Ressler has been working on Alternative Economics, Alternative Societies. Started in 2003, this major ongoing exhibition project currently presents sixteen concepts and models for alternative economies and societies, premised on a rejection of the capitalist system.

His eight-channel video installation What Is Democracy?, 2009, presents the views of activists in eighteen cities across the world on the deep political crisis of the Western democratic model, proposing approaches to a more democratic system.

In his talk We are the ones we have been waiting for, Ressler will present these projects and put them up for discussion in relation to the latest social movements.

January 25, 2012, 6 pmGA Tech School of Architecture Presents: Danielle Roney | Site Immaterial
Danielle Roney is an artist working with hybridization, immersive environments and interactive media architecture in the context of global identity structures. Currently, her focus is on transnational spatial narratives and the migrant human condition through interactive architectural façade. Roney’s work stems from her study of sculpture and digital media at the University of Georgia and from holding studios in locations like Los Angeles and Beijing. Her project, Global Portals, presented concepts in transnational, networked public spaces at TEDGlobal 2005, with subsequent live interactions from Johannesburg, South Africa to Atlanta in 2007. Her recent project, Opposing Views, was presented at the International Symposium of Electronic Arts Istanbul 2011, in conjunction with the Istanbul 12th Biennale and explored the visualization of conflict through biofeedback sensors and the interactive media façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb.

Locally, Roney provides consultation in public art master planning and is currently on the design team for the Atlanta BeltLine. She is the media advisory for the John Weiland Contemporary Art Collection and was the exhibition and media designer for the U.S. Pavilion, Venice Biennale of Architecture 2010. She is currently a researcher of Salmon Rushdie’s “digital borne archive” at the Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library at Emory University.

“deus ex machina” by Martha Whittington

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia

“Recalling the moment when machines became gods and workers became machines, deus ex machina is a precisely constructed environment of obscurely comprehensible machines and devices. Dancers as workers react within the installation, performing tasks for reasons and results that can only be implied by the viewer. The audience is challenged to make perhaps uncomfortable decisions regarding the meaning and purpose of the devices and the actions.”
