A Broadcast in collaboration with: David Rych, Kevin Dooley

The November-December broadcasts are dedicated to the new fellows of the International Fellowship Program for Art and Theory at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen for the winter and summer semester 2012-13. At the Start up Lectures 2012-13 (Oct 19, 2012) Kevin Dooley, Marcel Hiller, Dominique Hurth and David Rych presented their former work and gave a preview of their upcoming project for the following months.

Kevin Dooley’s study Art Workers Inquiry, part II: SPECTRES will analyse the figure of the ‘emerging artist’ and ‘emerging economy’, as forms of invisible or spectral labour. Where does the artist/economy emerge from? And what does it mean if they are only ever in a state of emergence, and never fully formed? And in which ways do the figures of the student or artist connect with the working-class more broadly and with the figures of the ‘emerging’ and disappearing worker and economy?

David Rych will be working on the film Border Act. A casting for this film project shall take place, looking for amateur actors to play illegal migrants. The practice of the british director Peter Watkins, of assigning real-life roles to the protagonists serves as a starting point for the film. The project is mainly about creating a set of conditions that offer the protagonists a space for exploring aspects of their personality and related social and political viewpoints, whereby the freely developing plot becomes integrated in the fictional framework of the project

David RYCH (*1975 in Innsbruck), lives in Berlin. He studied at the University of Innsbruck (1993-95), the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1995-2001) and the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem (1999/2000) and completed postgraduate study at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Marseille (2004/05).

Kevin DOOLEY (*1983 in Hastings/UK) lives and tries to work in Vienna. His work history includes six years in a supermarket, butchery, teaching, city tours and translating. He has an ever-increasing student debt of £12,500 (as of July 2013). Dooley spends a lot of time in the unemployment office. His work on the project Art Workers Inquiry, Part II: Spectres, part of his first-ever artist-in-residence program, felt like a holiday from unemployment with reduced wages. After visiting a political therapist and a relationship counselor, Dooley decided to be more polygamous and to focus on unionizing as a form of therapeutic empowerment.
