Bogomir DoringerCA/QCNxT Museum
Bogomir Doringer is an artist, researcher, curator and guest lecturer at universities internationally. He is currently doing an Artistic Research PhD at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with an ongoing research project I Dance Alone that observes clubbing from a birds-eye-view as a reflection of and reaction to social and political change. In collaboration with frei_raum Q21’s Artist-in-Residence programme and exhibition space at MuseumsQuartier Wien, he curated the exhibition Dance of Urgency, establishing a definition of dance that aims to empower individuals and crowds in times of personal and collective crises.
Between 2012-2015, he curated an international series of exhibitions and events tackling the social meaning of the personal image under the title FACELESS. The project was inspired by his interest in the recurring presence of hidden faces and the ritual of masking in contemporary society after September 11th. After this project, Doringer started a yearly collaboration and production of exhibitions and symposiums with the CPDP-Computer Privacy and Data Protection Conferences in Brussels. This phenomenon is documented in a special edition of the University for Applied Arts Vienna, under the title FACELESS: Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies. He is co-curator of Frei(T)räume – Envisioning Free Spaces, the public day of Stadt Nach Acht conference since 2014, which has been contributing to various international music festivals, club programs and institutions.
