PREMISE
 

In the wake of the successful ENTARTAINER (2011) and ARTE NOAH (2012), Vienna’s avant-garde art fair PARKFAIR will present TERMINARTOR this year.

The opening will be staged in September 26 at a new, memorable place: At the Hall of Honor (Ehrenhalle) inside the Outer Castle Gate (Äußeres Burgtor) at Vienna’s Heldenplatz.

With TERMINARTOR, PARKFAIR is again creating a theme-based special exhibition setting that moves beyond conventional exhibition and art fair formats. It focuses on the World War I centennial as well as ongoing international crises and political tensions that could well end in a new nightmare breakdown of civilization. The show will let concept, setting, venue, artistic positions, and the viewers’ presence fuse into one piece of art.

This year, Matthias Makowsky commissioned the artist duo XXXXismTC(*2012 Iv Toshain / Anna Ceeh), whose logo expresses their critical stance towards ideologies, to develop together a radical concept that is tailored to this specific exhibition space.

All of the participating national and international artists have been invited from PARKFAIR and guest curators to formulate one slogan, message or thought on the subject. Only by using military night-vision equipment, which is part of the installation, viewers will be able to see the works become clearly discernible.

On the occasion of the World War I centennial, PARKFAIR is launching TERMINARTOR to send a message of peace to the world.
