COAPPARATION (Teil 2)

Artist residency in Arbeitszimmer from thealit Frauen.Kultur.Labor. Bremen

October 2021

COAPPARATION? Cooperation is a process or behavior that can be regarded as essential for many things, ranging from culture and cultural politics to evolution, and vice-versa. Like an engine, it enables the stop and go of functional relationships, whose complex rhythms and intervals can in turn appear instrumental. In an apparition—another word for manifestation—perhaps? In that case COAPPARATION would be a little bit of COAPPARITION, because each instance of cooperation or each instance of its rejection comes down to common understanding, agreement, inquiry, hesitation, and action.

I will be working on the topic of Coapparition*, by recuperating a family history of ‘temporary’ migration to Germany. A portrait of a socialist good working man, and his adventures in the west. The specific social class infrastructure of migration: passport was taken upon arrival! Freedom was experienced elsewhere. The body. His stories of glory, and the things that were left unsaid.

kültüř gemma! Arbeitsstipendium 

01.07-31.12.2021

Basierend auf der Erfahrung als Saisonarbeiterin in der Pandemie, überlagert mit der einer Daueraufenthalterin in Österreich, arbeitet Alexandra Tatar an einem Videoessay, der die Ausbeutung von Körpern, die durch die Kolonialität der Macht ermöglicht wird, mit der Weinkultur verbindet, wobei sie die multiplen Perspektiven nutzt, die ihre komplizierte Positionalität ihr erlaubt. Einerseits konzeptualisiert sie das visuelle Material durch ihren Körper, der zur Maschine wird, andererseits löst sie den Körper heraus, überlagert ihn mit der Landschaft und verknüpft die Geografien, zeigt seine Widerstandsmechanismen und wie all das mit der in Österreich vorherrschenden Weinkultur zusammenhängt.
