Aims and Objectives of the organization kunstwirkstoff

Creating spaces for projects as a platform and as a strategic element for the practical development of artistic and cultural exchange and networking.

Workshops focus on Performance Art and are called T.a.T. meaning action in art in action. They can be established as educational outposts to regional and European Art institutions (Kingston University London). In the context of research some of the debates will engage in the position of the artist as foreigner and the experience and function of cultural 'vehicles'. kunstwirkstoff is also a tool for the planning, realization and production of Performance Art, mixed inter-disciplinary actions, cooridinated and introduced through the international project 'transitstation' event and exhibition in European cities.


The founders are Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith
and Alexander Rues

Alexander Rues' focuses on music (Eru, Morphon, B.E.L.) / soundscapes and Photography.
He is independent web designer.

Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith is professional Artist, Senior Lecturer and international Project Manager at Kingston University London.
Her main task is research and implementation of Performance Art Workshops (T.a.T.) and the international site-specific City Performance Workshops (Werktag)which is a one-day marathon workshop (7 am - 7 pm) taking place in European cities. In relationship to these workshops is the realisation of the concept of transitstation, an International Art Exhibition as 'event'. In her work Glausnitzer-Smith concentrates on performance art, photography, installations, film and painting.

The aims and objectives of the founders are to establish in kunstwirkstoff, a new task field to offer a variety of workshops and seminars to regional and international artists and to attract interested people. kunstwirkstoff represents the planning process of transitstation as a production and archive basis for the European development. Each place can be a center of communication and networking, its practical and theoretical preparations, postproductions of documentation materials of various projects.
