[Manoeuvres] brings together works that resulted from procedures the participating artists did not fully control. Against the grain of a romantic and subjective tradition that is still influential today, the artists consciously chose for a ‘mechanic’ mode of production that, to a certain extent, generates itself.

Instead of starting from a personal style or insights, the works apply all sorts of automatisms and compulsive strategies — ‘manoeuvres’ that work autonomously and engender a certain degree of objectivity. By partly distancing themselves from whatever the final result could be, the artists ask questions about the laws inherent to the medium they work in, the way a work is received and the unconscious mechanisms that play a role in any production process.

The mechanical starting point of [Manoeuvres] thus takes on many different forms, but what connects the works presented, is that they proceed from random parameters that were decided on beforehand and weren’t abandoned afterwards. Drawings that were literally produced by a machine, copies of thoughtlessly drawn doodles, an installation that builds itself through breaking down, interventions in public space that are defined by the context in which they take place, or performative actions that are limited by what you can do with a body: cut loose from the artist’s subjective standpoint, all these works involuntarily explore their own limits in their own ways.
