Bank of No (Austerity Dance)

BANK OF NO is a “rebranding initiative” where art meets the banking crisis; a practice whose dimensions stretch into painted graphic installation, street art intervention, political direct action, and communal dance. At the core lies an international working group with DNA from the 2011 political movements, including core organizers of Occupy Museums, Gulf Labor, Free Artists Hungary, and Living Memorial. The initial crystal of a practice fused together at the 2012 Berlin Biennale-itself a clash point between the art world and politics. From the “muddy” navigation of urgent activism from inside an art institution, a network of artists formed to connect various crises between contexts which at اسماء بنات first glance seemed opposite: From authoritarianism in Hungary to domination of the public sphere by private interests in the US and occupation of Southern Europe by Northern: a new troubled panorama. This new practice utilizes traditional artistic tools and art world spaces while resisting the codified political gesture. This requires a continual crossing between interior and exterior of art institution; between the street and the museum; between yes and no. Rather than seeking an “outside”– entities from art institutions to banks are rebranded; passed through filters of hyper reality or absurdity. The group employs with equal weight the practice of painting, sculpture, manifesto writing, and anarchist organizing as needed, from case to case. BANK OF NO tests this method by proposing a panoramic view opening out from the specific political and economic conditions experienced in Cyprus. In research leading up to the work in Nicosia, a collection of key locations and symbols were discovered while proposing a new theory relating the political panorama to the body; the practice of dance.  Working Group: Noah Fischer Raúl Hott Nurtane Karagil Csaba Nemes Joulia Strauss Produced by A.
