In our changed worldview the understanding of art to human is changing as well - or was it the other way round!?
View: offspace | galerie panoptikum. - Unscharp #04

The offspace | gallery panoptikum. is an austrian gallery for contemporary photography & art. 2017 we saw the light of the art world. We made it our task to explore or even redefine the myth of 'beauty" in contemporary art photography.

> Beauty...
Was könnte nun dieses "Schöne" sein? Schon in der Antike, vor allem bei Platon ist das Schöne als metaphysisches Prinzip, als Faktor der universellen Ordnung zu finden. Mit Descartes und der Zugrundelegung des Subjekts als Ausgangspunkt jeder Erkenntnis, verfällt der ursprüngliche Anspruch des Schönen, unabhängig vom Betrachter zu exisiteren. Auch Humes' Definition, die Schönheit liege im Auge des Betrachters, hat es dem Schönen erschwert, sich formal und inhaltlich selbstständig weiterzuentwickeln. Die Darstellung bzw. der Versuch einer Darstellung des Schönen verlor als wesentliches Merkmal der Kunst an Boden. Unser Ziel: Eine Annäherung an diesen Schönheitsbegriff. Dieser wahnwitzige Versuch - mitunter auch einen Kriterienkatalog zu schaffen - kann doch nur scheitern, oder?!

We are working with national and international artists who have their own personal and aesthetic access to contemporary art photography. The approach as well as their subjective image language are very important to us. Contemporary art photography is more than a simple idea, a documentation or the illustration (image) of digital media images. Our focus is on the materiality, the technique as well as on the modern and authentic interpretation of selected aspects in our society (culture) we are all living in - without thinking in categories. We are only working with unique photography artworks or very low editions.

Our 'offSpace | galerie panoptikum.' tries to push cooperations and (collective) art projects. As a place of encounters we want to engage actively in the development of contemporary art photography.

Project: "Art makes school"

2018: A transdisciplinary educational approach!

I: Project: "art makes school " 2018
VS Moosdorf, 4th class & offspace|galerie panoptikum.

We plunge into the transdisciplinary art culture and ecucational offensive! We are starting our transdisciplinary educational approach "art makes school" with the elementary school in Moosdorf (Upper Austria). Based on the idea from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research "Kunst macht Schule" (Art makes school) we would like to pick up this transdisciplinary approach to emphasize art & culture in education. We would like to perform our role as an art and cultural mediator in society and follow alternative pathways in culture and education policy.

We are supported by mayor Manfred Emersberger, the local business community, artists and motivated art lovers. The project takes place in autumn 2018 with the classes 1-4 of the elementary school Moosdorf.

We are on a good way! Many thanks to all people involved in this educational project "Art makes School" 2018!
