DIZZINESS — A Resource


ruth+leoBorn in 1976 + 1977 in Graz, Austria, Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond began working as an artist duo in 1999. In January 2012 they began curating a monthly screening and discussion series, HASENHERZ, inspired by Arnold Schönberg’s Society for Private Musical Performances. In 2007 their book Notizen zu einer Küste (Notes on a Coast) was published. The book, a collaboration with Giora Rosen and Klaus Zeyringer, included an eponymous photo series and the first anthology of contemporary Hebrew lyric poetry ever translated into German. Currently they are working with the writer and essayist Anna Kim on a year and a half long project that follows the construction of a new district in Vienna and reflects on the process of converting utopian ideals in urban design into reality. Most recently they have developed a special interest in ‘dizziness’ as a source for new ideas and creative processes. Turning the world upside down does not necessarily make it a better place, but they think it’s a good start! Their numerous exhibitions and screenings include: What Would Seeing be Without Us? mumok cinema, Vienna; Trees are Companions, Whitechapel Gallery, London; Camera Solaris, CCA-Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv; Construction Site As Far As The Eye Can See, Institute for Art in Public Space Styria, Universalmuseum Joanneum, Graz; Shattered Horizon, Himalayas Art Museum (formerly Zendai MoMA), Shanghai; Film Centre Pompidou, Paris; Paradise Now! — French Essential Avant-Garde Cinema (1890-2008) Tate Modern, London.
