KABK: The Artist as Dog

Eye on Art's Research Labs provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. Students from different art academies and universities are asked to put together a programme featuring their own work and films (including remixes) from Eye’s collection. Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms. Today: The artist as Dog by KABK.

The focus of this year’s research lab of the KABK is on Diogenes, the infamous Greek philosopher born in the Black Sea coastal city of Sinope in 412 BCE. Diogenes was called the Dog (from the Greek word Kyôn) because of his shameless doglike behaviour. The philosophical school that he and his followers developed is called Cynicism. It is a loosely based, slightly anarchistic and meandering way of thought characterised by notions like living in the moment, true independence (autarky), free speech, voluntary poverty, austerity and cosmopolitism.

The Lab’s theme gravitates around the research question how an artist can achieve a state of independence within the tightly woven fabric of today’s society. Where society’s complex social, economic and technological character forces the individual to adapt to it with a fair chance of losing the possibility of creating a genuine autonomous voice. 

The KABK 2020 lab is producing six projects:

  • Underground refuge of deviation, by Sarah Hoogman and Max Olffen.
  • The chimaera like metamorphosis of a woman as she develops into a phenomenon of an ‘unidentity', by Chloe Snoeks and Menghua Wu.
  • Sandcastles, by Anca Barjovanu is a short movie that reveals to the viewer the universe that can be found on a duck’s body. By zooming in, the audience peaks into the ecosystem of a living micro-universe. The emphasis of the movie lies on the multiple ecosystems of our world and aims to shine light on their correlations and interrelations between the visible and invisible; between the human species and all other sentient creatures.
  • Inaccurate Gaze (Rhizomatic, Macrocosm-Microcosm, Desynchronisation, Undead, Psychedelia, Hollow Marrow, De-Anthropocentric, Lichen, Moss, Zombie, Shift, Leaf-Cutter, Silverfish, Ophiocordyceps Sinensis, Soil, Extension, Exception, Exit, Dark Ecology, Microscope, Magic Rock, Liquid, Hierarchy, Coherency, Nutrino, String, Leaves, Trees, Mycelium, Spikehead, Cosmic Ray, Cloud, Lens, Air, Vibrating, Decomposing, Resonating), by Lui Wolstencroft, Yujia Wu, Mischa Lind and A.Zhaishylyk.
  • La Senda (a young traveller searches within himself whilst wandering through a foreign range of mountains), by Ed Chilton.
  • What happens when you stumble upon a fish in the woods, by Marysia Swietlicka and Szymon Hernik.

the mad dog

The program is presented by Besan Pas (the mad dog), a popular talkshow host from the former Yugoslavian State Television. After his downfall prompted by his involvement in the Ljubostinja nuns convent scandal, he is now making a weekly YouTube vlog from his native village of Trstenik.

The best curated programme and the best work will be awarded by a student jury and an Eye jury.
