. The exhibition combines and unfolds collected original materials from the two research projects. In extension to the subjects of these, the exhibition features (new) works contributed by:
Federico Antonini & Alessio D’Ellena (IT), Studio Atlant (DK), Bart de Baets (NL), Giandomenico Carpentieri (IT), Prill Vieceli Cremers (CH), Dallas (IT), Emilie Ferrat (FR), Moonsick Gang (KR/US), Ben Ganz (CH/US), Till Gathmann (DE), Rudy Guedj (FR/NL), Studio Hato (GB), Will Holder (GB), Experimental Jetset (NL), Pauline Kerleroux & Adéla Svobodová (CZ), Maziyar Pahlevan (IR/US), Clemens Piontek (DE/CH), Regular Practice (DK/UK), Shared-Space (BG/KR), Dexter Sinister (US/GB), Batia Suter (CH/NL), Wrong Studio (DK).
SPORTIFICATION. Eurovisions, Performativity and Playgrounds
is a long term research and a set of cultural actions based on several archives about “historical” European TV casts or Eurovisions (Games without frontiers/Jeux Sans Frontieres/Spiel Onhe Grenzen). Sportification is an interdisciplinary research focused on analyzing the subject of sport, of agon and of game nowadays. The basis of the work is a critical-comparative and sociological analysis dictated by a wide archive of images and videos of the famous tv-show Giochi Senza Frontiere / Jeux Sans Frontieres / Spiel Onhe Grenzen / It’s a Knockout, which constitues a master guide and a “true” archeology of the competitive action from the times of picturesque villages, to Eurovision, passing through the postpolitical era of European Community. The project deals both with the utopia of a playful society and with the social musculature leading to “sportification” of the collective body and to politicization of sport.
Yes Yes Yes Alternative Press/1966–1977 from Provo to Punk
is an evocative display of original materials selected from a long research on alternative European and American press. Starting from Dutch Provo publications and their influence in Europe, to the British scene and to the wide American scenario of east and west coast, the research especially focuses on aspects of graphic design of a wide hidden publishing scene which has been mainly analyzed, until now, from the political and countercultural point of view.Copublished by a+mbookstore.

It is our pleasure to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Be Right Back
by Felix Salut
at Annual Reportt. Be Right Back
is an exhibition by Felix Salut. Central to the exhibition is a game called Galapagos
with which visitors are invited to play, while Felix went elsewhere.
On the occasion of the opening Felix will give a talk about his work at 5pm.
The exhibition is centered around the Galapagos
game invented by Felix Salut. The game was used as a prop for his 2014 short film Shut Up I’m Counting of which the script turned book, published by Spector Books
, was awarded the Walter Tiemann Prize the same year. The game consists of 45 stones (100% Polyester, each 7,5cm x 7,5cm x 1,5 cm). It features 9 basic graphic elements to be combined in numerous ways, pointing towards both basic graphical composition and typographical constructions, conjuring associations to a gamified language. Visitors are invited to interact and play with the game during the period of the exhibition. These interactions will be documented and subsequently turned into a new format/edition as a collaboration between Felix Salut and Annual Reportt.
Frothing, Foaming and Teeming
Opening and booklaunch: Friday 01.09.2017, 5pm
the dead ecologies of economy are haunted. their geographies and bodies are looming over and shining out, as malign agents of a hyperobject wraith that looms over and shines out through all and everywhere.
a seething bioform is cannibalizing the company building in which it has been grown. the very architecture of the company is blossoming into abject life, and sprouting ghosts that haunts the occupants, as they still seek to capitalize on the infested commercial enterprise.
three mercenaries and an alchemist roams through the headquarters of the european central bank, in search of a fabled magic mushroom reputed to grow within the semi-deserted building. what they find will illuminate something festering in both the building and themselves.
an a nameless container-port, a shipping company is loading a mythic cargo onto a freighter. but in the metal cubicles of the port, forgotten things have lingered and grown, and from the sea, things rise and sink and rise again.
Frothing, Foaming and Teeming is both an exhibition and a graphic novel. The exhibition serves as a temporary physical index for the publication; the borders between the two porous, as their narratives and figures infiltrate and betray each other. Their story unfolds as fragments of ontological disaster-sites discharged by capitalism in a climate-chaotic age, where uncanny fictions infest geography and sprout visceral monsters, and radical otherness may be a way to resist inside the catastrophe.

Meanwhile, in Time
Opening: Friday 16.06.2017, 5pm
Three actors perform peculiar activities like having sex—while one, along with a dog, is seen in real-time, each frame of the other two is archived so that they are perceived through time, and the images of their bodies create an architecture of their actions. A camera is circulating on the inside of a round building structure, reaching back to its starting point in exactly one minute—pointing out the inevitable repetition of our cyclical perception of time.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the opening of Meanwhile, in Time at Annual Reportt, opening June 16th at 5pm. Drinks will be served, all are welcome.
Meanwhile, in Time is a group exhibition featuring works by a series of international artists and designers from USA, The Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey, France and Denmark. Despite their differing origins, varying observations and intentions, the presented works are bound together by a relation to the concept of time and its possible mediations. Through different perspectives, we are confronted with the consequences of the conception of time: parts of what we experience as the passing of time and its impact on our orientation within it.
Through June 16th–17th all seven video works appear inside Annual Reportt simultaneously. Subsequently they will alternately tone in on different screens in the window next to the street. The exhibition unfolds over time and is only complete once the last video has finished. The exhibition will run night and day, all the time.
Featured artists: Ronja Andersen (DK/NL), Tim Enthoven (US/NL), Joshua Graver (US), Ayşe Köklü (TR/UK), Olof Olsson (DK), Sasha Portis (US), Clément Rouzaud (FR/CH), Maria Trenkel (CH), Olya Troitskaya (RU/UK).
