Program Angels - experiments in media
Since 2000 the program angels have been the inspirational
force behind the "lothringer13/laden". the five headed
team of artists, theorists and new media specialists consider
themselves "business angels" providing friendly support
to young, up-and-coming artists with high potential. after opening
the "laden" the program angels forged a cross regional
platform for contemporary interdisciplinary activities in art
The program angels support media art and place emphasis on
installations, interaction, experimentation, and teamwork. people
from different scenes and varying disciplines come together and
participate in some six exhibitions and 30 performances annually.
high potentials in art could be encountered at "laden"
on their way to the top: woon tien wei, transnationale republik,
vreni spieser, reinigungsgesellschaft, issemittebankleer and
monochrom, to name a few. the program angels will introduce you
to the "erfinderfamilie" ("the inventor family"),
learn the art of hula and baroque dance, participate in motivational
training or stock exchange karate, apply for a transnational
republic passport, or, allow yourself to be locked up for a week,
kidnapped by a bus driver and find a burning satellite dropped
in the woods, or pay a visit to the self-help group, "schner
scheitern" ("fail more beautifully").
Maintaining an international and local community while keeping
a sense of Munich's humor is part of the program: the first of
every month the progam angels present "jetztredi" (translated
from local Bavarian dialect "now i speak"), which is
a platform for open discussions and art projects from both near
and far. among others, past guests include: reinhold grether,
nancy adajania, konrad becker, harm lux, shu lea chang, florian
schneider, maria lind, r¸diger suchsland, and elisabeth
bronfen. in addition to the many exhibitions, there are also
events, workshops, excursions and unexpected encounters.
