Welcome to the LAB!
With the advent of the post industrial service and knowledge economy current working conditions have changed. This development has brought people into the different places as a workspace. The LAB is something very spontaneous when work has to be shown and discussed. LAB is not fixed to a specific place or location. It is a ‘get together’ to present current research in an informal setting like in the studio, at home, or in the public space.
Daniela Brugger focuses on structures of society, investigating its forms and contents. She provokes moments of change by repeating and transforming supposedly familiar patterns. Fascinated by simultaneous states of being, she is captivated by alterability as a continuous condition. Her practice involves different media such as installation, video, writing, drawing, performance and collaborative projects. Daniela Brugger lives in Basel where she graduated in 2015 from Art Institute, HGK. She studied at Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, Moholy Nagy University in Budapest and holds a BA in Art Education from ZHdK, Zurich. She is founder and organiser of Who writes his_tory? a collaborative project in cooperation with Wikimedia and Art+Feminism to question structural discrimination on the internet and mainly on Wikipedia.
Nickel van Duijvenboden is an interdisciplinary artist from Amsterdam. His work comprises spatial installations, printed matter, photography, performative readings and sound works. While initially working as a writer, his work has since 2012 become more manifestly visual and aural, intensified by a two-year research period at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. During this period, written correspondences became a primary focus within his practice.
His most recent series of works, called «Echolocation», engage with improvisation, field recording and acoustic layering, marking a disinvestment in writing and opening up the question of composing. While in Berlin, Nickel hopes to address the musicality of his practice, in connection to the music of the Interbellum and the early post-war years, notably that of Hanns Eisler (who became the pre-eminent East-German composer) and the electronic pioneers.
