7 artists' projects in Etsdorf-Haitzendorf

The Etsdorf Kultur und Wirtschaft Kunstverein (Culture and Commerce Arts Society) launched a series of projects drawing from the specific situation of the nine Etsdorf-Haitzendorf communities in collaboration with the Lower Austrian culture department, Kunst im öffentlichen Raum. The concept envisaged providing the invited artists with region-wide possibilities to react to the different communities within the area as a historic, social or other constellation. The participating artists engaged with the many layers of the local structures in different ways, whereby the challenge in the situation for them lay in finding their work in another context, i.e. to see it exposed, as in a clearly defined art space (Daschner, Jermolaewa, Gangl). Some of the artworks, though, could only be the result of the specific situation (Theuretzbacher, Deutschbauer, Baumüller/Hofmann). The artists found approaches and forms to realise their projects that showed almost the full spectrum of what is today seen as a progressive strategy for art in public space.

"Ohne Titel" (Untitled)
Katrina Daschner stages narratives in the complex compositions of her images that go beyond role-playing and gender identification. She imagined a world of beauty and irritation, one also of nightmarish associations with crime and sexual violation. In the images of roles the artist showed the construction of identities and cultural attribution. Katrina Daschner searched with relish for boundaries, the place of paucity, to recreate herself repeatedly as subject.
