Dirk Fleischmann at 98B


Since 1997 Dirk Flesichmann has been creating a business conglomerate.

Dirk Fleischmann's art inhabits economic forms and sneaks into given capitalist structures. The art projects intend to create financial profit, which are continuously and completely re-invested. The projects themselves create the budget for the next artistic investment. Thus every project is a transformation of the earlier ones. In other words, the complete profit of all former enterprises is embodied in all the existing projects now. It all started with some chocolate bars for sale in his studio at Städelschule Academy in Frankfurt in 1998. Six years later the subsequent operations merged into a solar power plant. Currently, the sales of mysolarpowerplant and the shirts from myfashionindustries project finance myforestfarm project in the Philippines.

Dirk Fleischmann's talk at 98B in Cubao, Quezon City, February 10, 2012. 
Presented in cooperation with Green Papaya Art Projects.

Marta Moreno Muñoz


Marta Moreno Muñoz “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self”

February 10, 2013

Marta Moreno Muñoz talked about her practice, The Unifiedfield and her ongoing project in the Philippines Lost Paradise. The Unifiedfield is an independent art space and artist-run organization focusing on the experimental aspects of sound, video and performance art. It previously occupied a traditional complex amongst rice fields in Yogyakarta (Indonesia), subsequently moving into a cave in Granada (Spain) before settling in an antique building nestled in Granada’s historic Moorish quarters, the Albayzín, where it currently runs its Artist-In-Residence (AIR) programme. Lost Pradise deals with the theme of the regression towards our animal condition, approached from a perspective close to pantheism and with a feeling of oneness with nature. The main idea of this project is “becoming buffalo”, intended as a journey, an expansion of Being through the dissolution of the self, an attempt of ontological transformation establishing a co-existence with the buffaloes by bathing daily with them in the water and remaining completely silent in a meditative state for the duration of one month. The whole process will be documented with video and this material will lead to a video-performance and to a film installation.

Marta Moreno Muñoz (Spain, 1978) is a performance and video artist with a background in experimental theatre and other time based arts. Graduating in 2002 with a M.A in Fine Arts, her work has focused predominantly on “feminine” subjectivity, dissolution of the ego and the notion of pre-oedipal nostalgia in response to a patriarchal and undesirable reality. She is at present in a transitional stage, shifting towards the conceptualization of larger-scale projects exploring the complex interchange between performance art and cinematic language.

Currently nomadic, she is working on personal artistic projects, researching for her PhD Thesis “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self” and co-directing The Unifiedfield with Marc Chia; Marta Moreno has lived, produced and engaged in artistic works in Spain, UK, Turkey, India, The Netherlands, Indonesia and exhibited worldwide.

Mary Mattingly


Mary Mattingly: Artist Talk

Mary Mattingly, whose artistic practice addresses nomadic themes with current and future global environmental and political conditions, is in the Philippines on a fellowship through smARTpower. Mattingly's Artist Talk will expound on her general practice and interests as an art practitioner. This will take place at 3:00pm on Saturday, 29 September in 98B Art Collaboratory, First United Building, 413 Escolta Street, Manila. Mattingly’s work addresses nomadic themes within current and future global environmental and political conditions, focusing on the interdependence of communities facing challenging political and climatic conditions. She has been exhibiting since 2000, and is the recipient of several awards. During the summer of 2009, she led a group of artists, builders, civic activists, scientists, and marine engineers in the creation of the Waterpod Project, a mobile, sculptural, autonomous habitat and public space built on a 3,000-square-foot barge. The Waterpod Project was designed to be an experimental platform for assessing the efficacy of onboard living systems, as well as to provide a public space for conversation and questioning the status quo concerning energy, water, food, and shelter. Over 200,000 people visited the Waterpod and participated in programs ranging from tours to classes, tutorials, music, and meet-ups.
