Has something fundamental changed in the art world in the last few years?
Or, let's say: since the '70s, since the outset of western capitalism's ongoing crisis? Have mechanisms set in that narrow the range of what artists/critics/curators
can do?

«target: autonopop» answers yes to all these questions and takes aim at the commercial art gallery circuit, its products, and the somewhat less (overtly) market-oriented art-institutional context. Safe generalizations that spare people's feelings and preserve confortable arrangements are not on the agenda; instead:
a regularly updated process in which art is 'consumed' in a different way.

«target: autonopop» examines the articulation between the market/gallery and institutional spheres, their cooptational and coercive instances, their aversion to any critique which has real consequences.

Visual, social, and historical investigations supplement a project which is not merely theoretical: to retrace and critique the art-circuit's tacit dogma of ambivalence and non-oppositionality. On the curatorial and production level, «target: autonopop» has been fostering and generating activity which avails itself to exactly those 'unartistic', unambiguous and frontal means when necessary, be it in an art or
a non-art context.

Andy Hayleck at Instrument-Builder Pinazola Laboratory // Workshop for Music and Acoustics



'Basically, I found myself repeatedly drawn to the large window in the room where Pinazola is installed; the view of the destruction outside while inside it is a hive of creativity. I decided to extend a long, tensioned wire from inside the room to a place in the courtyard, towards the disturbed earth outside. Each end of the wire is attached to an amplifier that passes the alternating current of an audio signal. The current generates a varying magnetic field, which interacts with an external, fixed magnet to cause the wire to vibrate. The wire vibrates without being touched, causing the harmonics of the wire to rise into our range of hearing. Inspired by the input signal, they vibrate as each feels appropriate.'

In addition, guests will be able to strum and otherwise activate the fifteen wires already strung between the walls of the room. Outside the window bees buzzed is an experiment that makes use of the sound-laboratory in keeping with the Pinazola concept: a test set-up wich interacts with the spatial context and its sound characterisitcs. The sound-laboratory is thereby expanded in its potential for play and sound.
