THE LOTTERY TICKET: VALUE, DROP-OUTS AND THE ART OF NEGATIVE SPECULATION
1646 is proud to present an evening with Maria Guggenbichler:
A dinner conversation about value, drop-outs and the art of negative speculation, with Marina Vishmidt and Eva Weinmayr.
For an artist to declare that they have failed, means that they are already in a position of power – power in relation to the frame of failure. The dropout as a character must touch on this power dynamic. If failure is a normal condition that people are subjected to, the dropout becomes an owned failure. (Dropouts: Slackers, sociopaths and social workers, A conversation between Marina Vishmidt and Melissa Gordon, PERSONA magazine, 2013)
The evening is hosted by Maria Guggenbichler, with Marina Vishmidt and Eva Weinmayr, a screening of Kasia Fudakowski’s “Female Pessimists” video and a lottery scratch ticket for everyone.
Dinner will be provided by chef Helena Sanders.
The event is free, but places are limited. Please make a reservation, with: email@example.com, thank you!
