The Marienbad Sessions: Jens Hoffmann

Curator and writer Jens Hoffmann talks about the influence of 1950s and 60s French Cinema and the work of directors such as Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Melville, Agnes Varda, and Eric Rohmer on the practice of exhibition making. He investigates in particular how the theory of the director as author, as developed by François Truffaut in his seminal essay “A Certain Tendency in French Cinema,” published in Cahiers du Cinema in 1954 and a manifesto of the Nouvelle Vague, translates to the idea of the exhibition author and creative curator.

Jens Hoffmann is currently Deputy Director of The Jewish Museum, New York, where he oversees exhibitions, public programs and collections. He has curated over 50 exhibitions internationally and written over 200 texts on art and exhibition making. He is the founding editor of The Exhibitionist: Journal for Exhibition Making. His most recent book 10 Fundamental Questions of Curating was published by Mousse Publications in 2013. His exhibition More American Photographs is on view at the California Museum of Photography in Riverside till January 11th and The Past is Present will run till January 5th at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

The Marienbad Sessions is an integrated public program that seeks to transform the exhibition site of Last Year at Marienbad redux into a learning site where real-time engagement with the public intersects visually and conceptually among works of art on exhibit.

The Marienbad Sessions: Jessamyn Fiore

Blast from the Past: a staged reading of a theatrical work by Jessamyn Fiore

Conceived and produced in response to the exhibition Last Year at Marienbad redux, the performance reading Blast from the Past theatricalizes found texts about the work of Gordon Matta-Clark and Robert Smithson, combining their words with contemporaneous interviews and articles to propose the genesis of two artworks Blast from the Past (1972–73) and Reality Properties: Fakes Estates (1974) by Matta-Clark featured in the exhibition.

In this one evening performance Fiore hauls the past to a present moment, time travelling through art and writing, to explore broader notions of place, memory and time, topics important for both Matta-Clark and Smithson, giving their words embodied voice, action and immediate presence.

Drinks and refreshments provided.

Made possible with the participation of Frank Castanien, Angela Conant, Dylan Gauthier, Maedhbh McCullagh, Kendra Sullivan and James Voorhies

The Marienbad Sessions: Dan Fox

Last Year at Marienbad Listening Session
The listening session was developed by Dan Fox in collaboration with Junior Aspirin Records and Dexter Sinister / The Serving Library in 2011. Designed to encourage thinking away from the printed word, each hour-long session, conducted in a darkened room, is comprised of commentary woven into a playlist of songs. For Last Year at Marienbad redux the commentary creates two parallel narratives, sometimes intertwining, and sometimes contradicting.

Dan Fox is a writer, musician, and co-editor of frieze, who lives in New York City. His writing has appeared in numerous exhibition catalogues and publications. He has co-run the music label Junior Aspirin Records, with Nathaniel Mellors and Andy Cooke, since 2002.

The Marienbad Sessions is an integrated public program that seeks to transform the exhibition site of Last Year at Marienbad redux into a learning site where real-time engagement with the public intersects visually and conceptually among works of art on exhibit.

Coming Soon
CCAD Junior Seminar in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Coming Soon is a collaboration between Junior Seminar students at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Learning Site Audible Dwelling. Coming Soon brings together personal reflections of Columbus residents and civic leaders on the ecological possibilities for their city. In response to a series of questions about what it means to build, maintain and live an environmentally conscious urban life, residents voice their opinions about the increasingly uneasy relationship between city and nature. Interweaved throughout these questions and answers are samples of sounds of Ohio’s greener pastures, aural meditations on the long history of agriculture in this state and the noises that once filled the very parking lot site where Audible Dwelling sits today.

Conceived, researched and recorded by students, Coming Soon is in conversation with Audible Dwelling about visions for a sustainable future.

CCAD Professor Tim Rietenbach with students Ken Aschliman, Jeremiah Caudill, Silver Corbin, Josh Culberson, Annica Damico, Quinn Kellogg, Lisa Kozlosky, Taylor Leaman, Bailey Ruhlen, Michelle Ross, Amanda Scharf, Mike Smith, Carli Sombat, Tosha Stimage, Ryan Walters and Joe Wyman

Chine-collé
Ross Caliendo, Todd Pleasants, Alex Ross, Brian Sharrock

Immediately following the Emergency Alert Siren, the sound performance Chine-collé will layer consistent tones with the aim to extend the spectacle of the siren. The EAS is a symbol of imminent threat and represents a culture and economy of fear that emerged in the 1950s and continues today. When sounded the siren raises the public’s awareness to the exact time and “it was only a test” regiment. The area will be blanketed with a drone that recalls the effect of the nearly 120 decibel test alarm blast. By matching the intensity of the siren, people in hearing distance to Audible Dwelling will re-experience the redundancy of the weekly siren as a new drone continues for 2 hours 40 minutes, the total number of minutes the siren blasts in one full year (the EAS sounds for 3 minutes every week).

Numerous EAS sirens are located around Columbus. The mechanical horn and distress signal have become ubiquitous in our environment. By utilizing the location of Audible Dwelling in downtown Columbus, listeners enter into dialogue with an infrastructure of defense and distress and the impact it has on public consciousness. Chine-collé explores the relevance of city ordinance and alters the audible layers that comprise the sound-scape of Columbus.

Aluminum Foil Mountain and Worm Man
Aimee Sones and Ryan Agnew in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Made of an everyday household material, Aimee Sones’s Aluminum Foil Mountain is a sculpture and day-long action that questions notions of planned obsolescence, consumption of natural resources and conflicted intersections of mining and agriculture. Sones collaborates with the physical qualities of the Learning Site Audible Dwelling to create a large, temporary sculpture of aluminum foil over one speaker house. Ryan Agnew’s Worm Man consists of sound recordings of the usually unheard and out-of-sight labors of worms churning and fortifying the earth. The sounds are amplified from both speaker houses. Agnew’s evening performance across the asphalt parking lot draws on concepts of displacement and habitation in Audible Dwelling.

Globalization = Americanization?
CCAD Honors Seminar in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Globalization = Americanization? is a collaboration between honor students at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Learning Site Audible Dwelling. It unfolds in the form a public debate with two opposing arguments about whether or not globalization is quite simply the Americanization of the world. Addressing issues related to mainstream media, national identities, new kinds of locality, public and private space and technologies, each speaker house of Audible Dwelling vocalizes a pro or con opinion about prescient topics related to America’s role in world affairs. Globalization = Americanization? is researched, written and recorded by students.

playing practice
Organized by Sönke Hallmann, Magda Tyzlik-Carver and Paul Gangloff, playing practice is part of the ongoing collaborative practice-led research project Virtual Networks Social Fabrics. In irregular intervals the Department of Reading invites its participating readers to discuss and comment through a chat on Skype given texts, which are displayed on a Wikipage. As a continuation of the series playing practice the session on November 1 departs from seven textual fragments, assembled on the Wiki of the Department of Reading in numbered sections. By means of simple commands placed in the chat on Skype, they can be quoted, edited, moved, exchanged, reworked, replaced and rewritten. This session invites a discussion on playing that like the tangram allows for different figures to appear through entering into new combinations.
