25th Movement: Final solution
long durational performance /11.00 to 19.00/
“The conflict between art and politics… cannot and must not be solved“Hannah Arendt
8 hours of humble work to defy the regime of ideological subjugation. The performer believes that through patience and perseverance, step by step, movement by movement, letter by letter, art will triumph. She is dangerously naive and determined to fight the domination of any regime other than the regime of art itself. No. Creativity is not intended to be useful, nor to contribute to ideological or economic prosperity. It is a monotonous, obsessive, compulsive, sluggish, tedious, stubborn, exhausting and persistent pursuit of something that is supposed to be called freedom.
Performed by Anita Wach.
26th Movement: Wrestling with ghosts
performance 30 min /19.30/
“Victims suggest innocence. And innocence (…) suggests guilt.“ Susan Sontag
The performance focuses on the skin as a carrier of a story. Through a single gesture, Anita will attempt to outline dozens of micro stories about intention and possible outcome of touch. Every single trace reconstructs evidence of pleasure, pain, and embodied fantasies. I am the perpetrator, I am the victim. Look at me, pity me, admire me.
