Dialogues/Tanzquartier Wien

gorelim ogrenelim performans meselesinin kendi performativity'si nasil arastirilir...

A project by Tim Etchells and Adrian Heathfield

Thur. 22 – Sat. 24 Nov. 2007
The Dialogues series, curated by Tim Etchells, the creative head of the legendary British performance group Forced Entertainment, and Adrian Heathfield, the internationally renowned scientist and curator, is the continuation of their intensive analysis of the ambivalent tension between creativity and critical analysis. In Dialogues they explore the importance of the lecture performance for knowledge production in performance art. Paradigmatically, they not only present two lecture performances, but in a ten-hour marathon they also create direct encounters between artists, thinkers and curators, which is at the same time intended to be serious and playful, organised yet uncontrolled. Variants of public discourse are rehearsed around art and performance, with games and rules of relationships being explored on the basis of the most penetrating and productive questions. Dialogues produces the emotions of a live encounter within the boundaries of experience and thought.

The Frequently Asked

Concept: Tim Etchells (UK) und Adrian Heathfield (UK) video: Hugo Glendinning (UK) with Jonathan Burrows (UK), Matthew Goulish (USA), Lin Hixson (USA), Janez Janša (SLO), Joe Kelleher (UK), Bojana Kunst (SLO), Alastair MacLennan (UK), La Ribot (E/CH), Boyan Manchev (BG/F), William Pope.L (USA), Goran Sergej Pristaš (HR), Alan Read (UK), Irit Rogoff (UK), Rebecca Schneider (USA)

What has performance got to do with survival? What place do feelings have in art? Sixteen frequently asked experts from performance and other branches pose frequently asked questions on contemporary art. The spectrum of these questions includes the experimental and metaphysical, the practical and the hypothetical, the mundane and the absurd. The total playing time of The Frequently Asked lasts ten hours – a marathon in the formation of dialogue pairs each followed by discussion. The audience can join in the discussion and come and go at any time.
Etchell’s and Heathfield’s play of questions makes good what Vilém Flusser already noted 20 years ago: “And no longer discourse but dialogue will structure future culture; that is, no longer ‘progress’ but mutual encounter.”
