The first issue of originalcopy is embedded in the series of events In der Kubatur des Kabinetts [In the Cube of the Cabinet], which its operators create as time-based space “for artistic forms of practice beyond the economic imperative”. The performative presentation form of the works shown at the the Fluc at Praterstern in Vienna reflects the circumstances of existence of the club, music and art bar, whose premises are constantly shaped by situative reorganisation and changing users. For one evening, originalcopy | fluc am praterstern refers to the character of the art club In der Kubatur des Kabinets, with the various methods of repeating and copying being tested for their quality with regard to the appropriation of space. originalcopy | fluc am praterstern is the beginning of a research into the various models of original copies and their diverse possibilities in the context of contemporary artistic, media and social conditions.
