geteilte zuversicht

In 2011 a site-specific art project was organised for the fourth time in the community of Reinsberg. Iris Andraschek and Hubert Lobnig invited six artists, or teams of artists, to participate who reacted very differently to the local situation. The village was at the artists' disposal together with its residents, its history and stories, its celebrations, institutions, forms of organisation, farming and firms, the kindergarten, the school, the outdoor bathing facility, the voluntary fire brigade, the local associations, clubs and societies, the cultural events held in the castle ruins, and the production and marketing of organic produce. The artists had specific focuses to their work and had been specially selected for the Reinsberg project. The project was based in the former Gruber department store in the centre of Reinsberg, and presented interventions in public space from 27 August.
Geteilte Zuversicht (Divided confidence) is an ambiguous title, and alludes to a special feeling of viewing the present accompanied by expectations for the future, to widespread suspicion of and great scepticism towards a constantly changing world. However the title also asks whether confidence can be shared.
Since the early 1990s Reinsberg has been deeply and repeatedly involved in the setting-up and realisation of culture projects and an improvement and re-evaluation of the village driven by the invention of new images (Eisenstrasse, Ötscherland, Kulturdorf — Iron Ore Road, Ötscher land, Cultural Village). Nevertheless in recent years a number of local residents have been lobbying to return Reinsberg to the status of a 'normal' village.

Iris Andraschek & Hubert Lobnig: WAS SOLL ICH TUN?
(schnapps bar during the Reinsberger Nächte; Inverse White Cube in the centre of Reinsberg; interior and outdoor space)
Iris Andraschek and Hubert Lobnig developed a schnapps bar for village ethics under the Kantian motto "What should I do?" — as part of a Dorffest (village fête), a walk-in cube was erected in the centre of the village. The outer walls served as a surface to display the results of a questionnaire about the rules of social life — providing a starting point for discussions about the 'operating instructions' behind village life. What pre-existing rules do the residents of a community follow? What rules do they create themselves at a time when church and state influence are continually dwindling? The interior conceals the constructivist schnapps bar where clear spirits (reiner Geist — pure spirit/spirits) from Reinsberg were served during the fest. At the end of the Reinsberger Nächte (Reinsberg nights), the cube detached itself from the Dorffest architecture.
