Statement:
Our identities are formed, not only by our experiences growing up - a specific time, or place - but also through the friendships, relationships and knowledge gathered throughout adult life. As we make new connections, alternative associations with people and their ideologies accumulate, generating the rich codes and values that constitute the communities we choose to be part of.

Effort brings together a group of distinct artistic participants from recently established and deep-rooted friendships and communities across several countries. Each comes with an individual perspective on how to meaningfully contribute to lived experience in a world full of irresponsible over-production. Many of the artists re-use and re-purpose mass-produced materials to reveal new ideas, or gather remnants from neglected objects or imagery that instill a revitalised purpose or energy. The work brings forth mystical, practical, humorous, cynical, or empathic urges; each assiduously articulated by the artist who sees potential where there is none. The lo-fi aesthetic and seemingly spontaneous production results from a need to express something directly, whilst making do with the resources at hand.

Whether intentionally or not, making art is an inherently defiant action that shakes the uncompromising reality of the 21st century cultural disposition. Situations are constantly revisited and weighed up to see how much longer a studio can be held on to, a full-time job can be avoided, or whether there are enough opportunities in a town/city/country to maintain a practice. There are always tough decisions to make. At the heart of this exhibition, the first project by GIFT SET, is a group of individuals forging a network of shared enthusiasms and attitudes towards communication, making work and collaboration that will continue to develop into the future.

Effort is doing something to retain the things that are important, work with and against constraints, and change the things we can’t live with any more.

DADA POST Presents:


Current: On Going Project



Udo Wid: The Perun Project


Udo Wid has a background in Biophysics.

Wid’s projects are simultaneously Biophysics and Visual Art practice. His numerous projects are aimed at a synergy of disciplines: a confluence of Science, Art, Philosophy and Everyday Life.

He studied physics and worked for eight years in the field of Biophysics at
Reactor Research Centre Seibersdorf, and was a guest at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. He employs among other things Cultural Theory, Aesthetics, and Philosophy. His scientific specialty is Extreme Low Frequencies.

While exploring the intersections of art and science, The Perun Project collects data from trees, as they themselves interact, through their internal systems, with the environment to detect environmental conditions, such as the amount of sunlight, the various weather conditions, and the presence of toxic contamination, all of which have a direct impact on the life of the tree. By transposing the resulting scientific measurements into graphical notations, he thus transforms scientific research into artistic artifacts.

Udo Wid’s ambition is to make art and life become one. By living in his installation for extended lengths of time, during the exhibition, he will be available to visitors for conversation.

(Kunstraum) Dada Post has appropriated the Andy Warhol Factory concept, as a model of organization. We are not interested in cultural production per se, as much as we are interested in being an outlet for creative expression and artistic innovation.

As a contemporary art space, (Kunstraum) Dada Post is concerned primarily with the art that reflects the actual meaning of the term: Contemporary Art. We exhibit artists from all over the world, but we are keenly interested in the notion of a Berlin centric practice.

The Dada Post program is an “OPEN FOURM”.

The Dada Post “OPEN FOURM” structure allows for a kind of flexibility and improvisation for our programs.


PROPOSALS to the Dada Post “OPEN FOURM” MUST BE SUBMITTED IN PERSON.
