Two year anniversary

This Friday we celebrate two years anniversary. Is that a moment to look backwards? What happened and what will happen next?

We would be very glad to see you from 22.00 for an evening program.

Best presents are your friendship and partners: we will celebrate together with “JCDecaux prize 2018: Dignity” at CAC exhibition participants and nominees. More than that: a special set from creative collective “Pinigų uostas”.

Andrej Polukord “Pjauti grybą”/”To cut the mushroom”

“Today we were walking in the forest and found a lot of ‘šrotas’ (in Lithuanian slang, goes for scraps of metal parts) there was a some shooting range, someone was burning micro schemes… What would you say if we would make a mushroom sorting manufacture at yours? We announce an open call to collect and bring mushrooms, mushrooms that were found in the forest or in the city. I would go in the morning to fill the whole Golf (model of WV car), maybe I’ll invite friends to help me and then we bring everything to Autarkia.

Everyone brings the mushrooms before 22.00 we throw everything on the tables and start sorting out, clean them with some sort of swords. In two piles- mushrooms and metal pieces (bolts, hinges, tin cans, locks ant etc.) We sort and clean so to say. And we use knifes and swords from my collection” – from the conversation with Andrej Polukord

Young Boy Dancing Group “Aging Tour”

No future, no hope, nothing to loose. Young Boys Dance Group presents the enigmatic elegy of post-human dance in the candlelight.

best wishes,
Autarkia

The cataclysm of dance industry, apotheosis and catastrophe of digital culture, hypertonic institutional nightmare turning in to lethal pleasure. Fashion, body, sculpture and improvisations in the apocalyptic setting. Inhuman acrobatics and executed subconscious and spilled candles.

“The Guest”, a cabaret directed by Robertas Narkus and produced by Kim? and Autarkia.

“The Guest” is a cabaret directed by Robertas Narkus & produced by Autarkia with contributions by Rainyr Askher, Gints Gabrāns, Kipras Garla, Antanas Gerlikas, Laura Kaminskaitė, Žygimantas Kudirka, Nerijus Rimkus, Antanas Skučas, and others.

“The Guest” cabaret invites you to reimagining the near future as promised by sci-fi entrepreneurs. Since the artificial intelligence took over solving the problems of the economy, philosophy, scientific progress and politics, since the clash of classes is over, all secretes of the universe are solved, everything is for free, produced at automatic factories, grown in self-sustainable farms, and delivered by soft six fingered hands. One looks around – everyone is an artist, designer, DJ, model, philosopher, startupper, plumber or visionary.

Antanas Lučiūnas “Attempting to be conscious”

“Autarkia” invites for two performances. One of them happened in two thousand and nine, the other is created now. Nine years – it’s not ten, is that a significant period of time? What has changed?

In the never shown before video the artists band “Kionigsberg” performs, punkish version of Lithuanian anthem, breaks guitar, throws plastic bottles at crowd. Huge audience is not really engaged in energetic show, but rather passively observes situation unfolding. Duration 4min.

Nine years later in the same location, a recent graduate from Vilnius Academy of Arts, Antanas Lučiūnas presents his latest performance. Duration 6 min.

Exhibition includes drawings by self taught artist under pseudonym “Vienturtis” (Onlyborn).

With this opening “Autarkia” launches new season. First message is simple – “Autarkia” is not an address or certain square meters, or even a program. Important – the exhibition will happen in new space (same location).

The event is part of the Vilnius Gallery Weekend.

Fabrizio Terranova
Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival (2016)
10 June, Saturday, 19:00
+++
high tea
10 June, Saturday, 14:00

About the film:
Donna Haraway’s groundbreaking work in science, technology, gender and trans-species relationships over the last four decades is marked by her deep commitments to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans and animals and machines, she proposed new ways of understanding our world that challenge normative structures and boundaries. Her approach to writing is equally distinct, breaking with prevailing trends in theory by embracing narrative techniques in painting a rebellious and hopeful future. Recognizing her singular talent for storytelling, Fabrizio Terranova spent a few weeks filming Haraway and her dog Cayenne in their Southern California home, exploring their personal universe as well as the longer development of Haraway’s views on kinship and planetary welfare. Animated by green screen projections, archival materials and fabulation, Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival is an appropriately eccentric response to a truly original thinker.

Superstition/555

5’s mean that you are going through a positive change. The more times you see this number, the more this message is emphasized. Therefore, 555 is a triple number, so it’s 5 triply emphasized 555. When you add up the three 5’s, the sum is 15, which is 6 when you add the 1 to the 5.

May 5, Friday, a place in territory previously know as 555, means rap’sh (trep and lo-fi, slow-mo, hip-hop) evening, to mark the upcoming five news:

5.1 “Delta Mityba” – opens it’s outpost in Venice
