Interview mit Mette Ingvartsen im Missy Magazine

Was hat dich zu ›Moving In Concert‹ inspiriert? Mein Interesse galt der Verbindung von Technologie und Abstraktion. Die Idee, mit technologischen Erweiterungen zu arbeiten, hat den Körper automatisch in ein Netzwerk von nicht-menschlichen Beziehungen eingeführt.

Second letter from Sophie De Somere & Barbara Raes

In the light of human finitude and the universal need to search for solace, with the interactive performance ›I listen‹ Sophie De Sommere and Barbara Raes are trying to bring the most modest form of consolation into the city. In their second letter, they are giving an insight into the idea behind the performance.

A letter by Protektorama toxica (cared for by J.P. Raether) 

Dear particles of Protektox 5.4.9, it was wonderful to encounter you-as-us in the Impossible Forest on September 13th. I-as-us hope the relation to me-as-an artificial witch still resonates with you-as-you. It certainly does for me-as-witch because the moment of my-as-our becoming a formation is how I-as-us exist in the real.

100 Advertisements
Eng Kai Er

›100 Advertisements‹ is an ongoing project where I create advertisements for imaginary products or services that people - honestly, myself - might wish for. The project started in March 2020. (Well, you know what happened in Germany in March 2020, I guess!) The project is a personal documentation of the times - part Corona-diary, part wishful thinking.

Abstrakte Architektur
Wiebke Meischner

Some of the geometric shapes in ›Abstrakte Architektur‹ (2019) call to mind a spaceship that has landed in a lonely desert. Building facades and elements have been photographed in such a way as to create monumental appearances that move between reality and sculpture. The reduction of references to scale blurs the boundaries to reality and viewers are invited to form their own associations.

Landing Day
Stefania Smolkina

The video installation ›Landing Day‹ deals with the symbolic meaning of planting trees. This ritual act is often seen as a symbol of peace and beauty and is therefore remarkably often used as an element of political representation. During the last decades the idea of large-scale planting of trees became widely accepted as a simple, relatively inexpensive and effective method of combating global warming.

Mother of All Fictions
Interview with Walter Solon

The short film ›Mother of All Fictions‹ is the story of a failed film project. 2016: South American filmmaker Walter Solon travels to Los Angeles. His goal is to write a script based on the biography and mythology around his great aunt Lina Mosebach. Lina had migrated to Los Angeles from Germany after surviving the Holocaust and spending her teenage years with Walter’s great grandparents in South America.

›‹ is a digital performance in which we experiment with the codes of social media platforms to create the narrative of a choreography, exploring new possibilities of presenting work during these challenging times.

The project investigates the question of how dance portraits can be used to deal choreographically with queer concepts of identity. The classical portrait familiar to art historians is representation-oriented. What would a moving portrait be that does not define individuals within the rigid framework of the social norm?
