Berlin–Porto Alegre 2019
»Techne« refers to both art and technology. Two exhibitions focus on the fusion of both disciplines and take place in an artistic exchange with Brazil. The exhibition catalog »Techne« with 26 artists from the Laboratorio de Imagem e Tecnologia Departamento de Artes Visuais / UFRGS and the Association of Berlin Artists, curated and edited by Sandra Becker and Elaine Tedesco, the representatives of the institutions, accompanies the exhibitions in Porto Alegre and in Berlin.
From the beginnings of philosophical reflection to Plato, the Greek word techne is mostly synonymous with knowledge (episteme) and means to be familiar with one thing and to be able to handle it. Works of art can not be created without a certain technique. No matter which material artists use, it always has to be worked with a certain technique. The technique, in turn, has developed a variety of materials that the artists use to create for processing and image production. The interrelations between art and technology can be viewed in very different ways.
