Oliver Ressler
The Alter-Globalization Movement â Interventions with Art in Political Movements
Live conversation with Razvan Ion

Wednesday, June 17, 2009, 19.00 hours

Oliver Ressler will discuss the alter-globalization movement along the path of some of the projects he worked on in the last couple of years.
He produced a video on the hour-long encirclement of demonstrators by the police at a demonstration against the World Economic Forum in 2001 in Salzburg, and one on the âDisobbedientiâ (with Dario Azzellini). âWhat Would It Mean To Win?â (with Zanny Begg) was filmed on the blockades at the G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany in June 2007 and focuses on the current state of the alter-globalization movement. Ressler created banners for demonstrations (with David Thorne) and was involved in the self-organized collaborative art project Holy Damn It (www.holy-damn-it.org), that produced 50.000 posters to mobilize for the resistance movements against the G8 summit in Heiligendamm.
Through his work Ressler outlines different strategies to intervene with art in political movements.

Oliver Ressler (b. 1970, Austria) produces exhibitions, projects in the public space and videos which try to blur the boundaries between art and activism. His projects have been exhibited in solo-exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum; Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center, Istanbul; Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade; Kunstraum der UniversitÃt LÃneburg, D and Centro Cultural Conde Duque, Madrid.
