Appropriation and Barthes's Punctum are the essential lines of inquiry of this curatorial essay. Starting from video work of the Franco-Mexican artist Marie Christine Camus, a drawing by the American, Mexico-based artist Carla Rippey, and an archive of found images from the Internet, the project “Happiness: An Appropriation” focuses on the selection of a Punctum: A smile in the middle of tragedy.The third exhibition will open on November 12, 2019 in Heumuehlgasse 2A, 1040, Vienna.
