“Nothing will have taken place but the place except perhaps a constellation.” Mallarmé
By entering the exhibition KURS at Atelierhaus Klingental you find yourself in a new situation of navigation. It’s the process of orientation by finding your position within space and time, as well as controlling your movements from one place to another, keeping track of a variety of artistic ideas and concept which tell us about the time and society we are living in – or how we can imagine ways to future times and societies. The landscape you are moving in at this point is shaped by the works of sixteen young artists from different art schools in Vienna, Prague and Basel. There is obviously no direct path from origin to destination, neither in the space itself nor in the way the exhibition is put together because the nature of its constellation is deeply experimental and embraces both the unknown and the temporary. The title KURS refers to direction, movement, behavior, to ideas one can observe, pursue, enact. Taking course means taking action, it implies the intention to develop and proceed. In this sense all participating artists are using their own techniques of navigation, using their individual artistic practices and the variety of materials and media as a compass and as goods, since this project may be perceived also as a field where themes and values of different forms of art education are being negotiated. - Alice Wilke
The project is curated by Martin Chramosta (artist, member of Atelierhaus Klingental / Raum 103, Basel), Jakub Jansa (artist, lecturer FAMU, Prague), Peter Fritzenwallner (artist, assistant Klasse Transmediale Kunst, Vienna), Alice Wilke (curator, assistant Institut Kunst HGK FHNW, Basel).

Everybody knows the LIMBUS-dance: Only those who bend the most can get to the other side. LIMBUS is the edge, the gap. It’s where for ever dwell those ex- cluded from heaven and from hell. It’s a foyer, a waiting room, a Beckett- loop. LIMBUS wants to explore institutional gaps as a curatorial practice: Foyers and Entrées of Kunsthalles and museums. Timeslots in houses neighboring Fairs and Biennales. Semiotic gaps, hierarchic gaps, etc.....
