Projektinfo

On the residency Hodošček will continue with her research that looks at historical formation of neoliberal subjectivity and its relation to the notion of visibility. She is interested in how the awareness of being observed effects the self.  Hodošček will explore key historical examples of how business organizations collaborated with the field of psychology in order to change the mindset of workers, and working environments and how this investment led to the current production model that is dependent on performance and display of the self.  She will finalize the montage of her latest experimental video series, where she connects the invention of the self as a tool of production with image-based practice.

Dokumentation

In her residency at the Museum Quartier Vienna, Hodoscek got acquainted with the cultural scene of the city by visiting museums, galleries, open air film (Kaleidoskop, etc.) and performance festivals (ImPulsTanz). She has met with other residential artists and curators, as well as the local art community. She visited exhibition openings and guided tours, visited museums from other fields, such as The Narrenturm museum, etc. 
She explored the city with a bicycle, riding across neighborhoods, discovering markets, streets, and parks. She spend a lot of her time at the Yppenmarkt, meeting people with who she engaged in conversations, and soon the market was her favorite place in the city and her daily ritual. Her other favorite almost daily ritual was swimming in the Danube river, and the space by the river was her place for reading and writing.

While on the residency she also prepared a workshop for high school pupils on the topic of dream incubation. She was interested in how dreams can be directed and if we can use dreams to create community ties and design new disobedience strategies. The workshop was realized in October at the City of Women Festival in Ljubljana.
