Opening: November 23d 2018, 19.30 – 21.30 H
Duration of the exhibition: November 24th2018 – January 25th2019
Why is it important in times of economic and political crisis that visual artists are being paid for their work? No society can afford that precarious artistic positions drop out their work. The exhibition shows in the context of the campaign PAY THE ARTIST NOW! the works of two artists, who are in search of strategic solutions as well as answers to the following questions: how persons forced into precarity due to intersectional reasons can come to their proper payment? How do I negotiate an artist fee, which does not cover only the production costs, but also the time of the artistic research?
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication.
Concept: Carla Bobadilla and Jelena Jelena Micić
Art direction and cover: Jelena Micić (kültüř gemma! Fellow 2018)

The Project Presentation “Countryless and Queer: Rituals of Relatedness” by Masha Godovannaya /a grant of kültüř gemma! 2018
7th of December at 7pm in ChateauRouge/Schönbrunner Schloß Straße 17, 1120 Vienna
The project “Countryless and Queer: Rituals of Relatedness” by Masha Godovannaya traces and redefines margins of queer existence and their intimate arrangements practiced by local queers who had/have/are having experiences of migration and who are finding their ways of navigating “the city of Vienna”.
Conceived as a dialogical art-based research (from/for/together with the queer people) the project asks questions of queer relatedness/mutuality of being, practices of survival, solidarity and support, and tries to reconfigure concepts of “queerness” outside of Western (predominantly white and Anglo-Saxon) paradigms.
Our mutual interaction has been forming an affective archive of complex, ambivalent, vivid, and poetic life narratives of migration and labor, relations to the city and society, strategies of integration and escape, sense of belonging and isolation, feeling at peace and of despairs.
“Countryless and Queer: Rituals of Relatedness” presents traces of our collaborative research, its polyphonic nature and rhizomatic storytelling. The multiplicity of voices collectively welcomes narratives and experiences from migrant queers to be heard: (re)imagine queer his*her*their*-stories – in, by, and for queer people from the margins.
The project is part of the kulturgemma grant 2018 in collaboration with the space Château Rouge that is an off space for performances and visual arts.
The kültüř gemma!-community grew in 2018 with further 9 grantees. The four artists chosen by the jury are: Elijah* Osakwe, Masha Godovannaya, Mzamo Nondlwana and Naomi Afia Güneş-Schneider. The Fellows chosen by the instituions are: Andrea Palasti (Volkskundemuseum) Jelena Mimić (IG Bildenden Kunst Vienna), Lydia Nsiah (WE DEY x SPACE) and the duo Oksana Zmiyevska and Oleg Soulimenko (Schauspielhaus Vienna).
The artistic projects realized are going to be presented later this year.
We are looking forward to the events and curious visitors.
This year’s edition of the scholarship call has given the seven-member jury – Daniela Paredes Grijalva, Elisabeth Bernroitner, Katalin Erdődi, Nadia Prauhart, Persy Lowis Bulayumi, Theresa Luise Gindlstrasser and Vanessa Spanbauer – a lot of discussion and headaches. The hard task to choose among the numerous applications – 140!, only four, they have carried out with great dedication and responsibility. The juries of kültüř gemma! make the project possible and at this point we thank all jury members since 2012 until now for the commitment!
The scholarship work has already begun, and it is expected that in December 2018, they will present the results of their 6-month scholarship to the public.
We are very happy to welcome The Next Generation by kültüř gemma! grants!
