Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts

O proxecto focaliza o traballo das mulleres creadoras que tematizan, transgreden e critican as fronteiras xenéricas entre a danza, a performance e os medios visuais dende a década de 1960. Velaquí a sinopse e o programa do ciclo:

“Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts” is an international live exhibition on the history of art performance in dance and fine art. As an exhibition ‘in progress’, the project shows and develops new formats of museal presentation of live acts. The exhibition begins in an empty exhibition space. During the eight week duration of the exhibition project a scenic act of around ten central stages of dance and performance history unfolded − as witnessed by a group of students invited to accompany and observe for the entire period − before a public. One of the key focal points is the performances and works by women who have consciously been thematizing, transgressing and critiquing the genre boundaries between dance, performance, and visual media since the 1960s. Here, they likewise reflect on the implicit male constructions of the gaze and the gestural logic of their colleagues.

Among others, the artists represented in the exhibition will be Marina Abramović, Graciela Carnevale, Simone Forti, Anna Halprin, Reinhild Hoffmann, Channa Horwitz, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sanja Iveković, Adrian Piper and Yvonne Rainer. The artists themselves partly document their historical performances in exhibition spaces. Boris Charmatz, in collaboration with colleagues from art and theory, approaches the documented works scenically and develops on-site a live act in a laboratory situation around this central moment of performance history. The artists Ruti Sela will be documenting this artistic approach to the work of their predecessors by way of film documentaries and will produce a film in the actual exhibition context itself. Furthermore new performative methods and actions of art education regarding historical performances will be developed.

The starting point is the interest in the processes of coming to terms with history in so-called enactments of historic performances, but which also comes to expression in the recently erupted controversy surrounding the museal presentability of performances by Joseph Beuys in photographic documentation. This is also reflected in the practice of a younger generation of performers and choreographs, such as in numerous historical appropriations and re-enactments. At the center of this is the “heroic” period of the 1960s to the 1980s in which a radical (new) definition of the genres took place in the more intimate dialog between performance movements of fine art and dance.

The exhibition “Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts” is composed of four phases, in each of which other actors occupy the exhibition space.

1. Act − Stage and Display (March 8−March 17, 2012)
“Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts” breaks with the routines of museal institutions.The exhibition begins with an empty display of ten artistic approaches. The artists of the “heroic” performance generation of the 1960s and 1970s will themselves be installing the exhibition before the public. Public discussions, panel discussions and reenactments will be held alongside the installation. The first phase closes with the actual opening of the exhibition on March 17. The performance “Practice Makes a Master” by Sanja Iveković is reenacted by Sonja Pregrad as part of the opening events and on March 18, at 4 p.m.

2. Re-Act − Interpretative Acquisition in the Art Laboratory (March 18−March 30, 2012)
In a two-week art laboratory of French choreographer Boris Charmatz and some of his selected colleagues of art and science, set up within the exhibition space, they will discuss and develop the strategies and methods of acquisition, and re-interpret the historical performances documented in the exhibition. At the Open Lab on March 30 the results will be presented. The performance evening MOMENTS will be given in the theater’s studio as part of the cooperation with the Baden Staatstheater on March 31.

workshop with Adrian Piper “The connection between Truth and Goodness: exploring Kant’s Metaethics”, Wed−Fri March 28−30, 2012, 3−4 p.m., ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, registration required at hartmann@zkm.de

3. Post-Production − Film Editing (March 31−April 14, 2012)
The artist Ruti Sela will produce a documentary on the Art Laboratory. During the third phase of the exhibition, the display will become the production studio of a performance art film. The film venue is the exhibition itself; its theme is the multiple interaction of the performance history within it. The visitors can follow the film production within the exhibition as it develops. The end of this project phase marks the premiere of the film on April 14.

4. Remembering the Act − Performative Mediation of the Exhibition Process by Artistic Witnesses (April 15−April 29, 2012)
The so-called “witnesses” (students from various international universities) will accompany the exhibition from the beginning. They represent the active mediators of the total process, and themselves become the main actors of the exhibition during the last phase. Their presence weaves and consolidates the chain of presences in this exhibition, which follows a dramaturgy of act, trace, recollection, interpretation, re-act, trace, memory, interpretation, re-re-act. The finnisage on April 28, concludes the fourth phase and also the exhibition itself.

Marina Abramovic convertida en meme: a performance na (nova) cultura popular

Coa súa performance The Artist is Present, que realizou o ano pasado no MOMA de Nova York, Marina Abramovic converteuse na primeira artista de performance que, rozando o mainstream, consegue facerse un sitio na cultura popular do século XXI. Isto é, a dos blogs, a dos videoxogos, a dos memes de internet.

Lorena Lozano. Danza infinita

Biografía del cuerpo clínico y del cuerpo humano; un homenaje a
Henrietta Lacks
Programa: Exposiciones
Obra seleccionada en la convocatoria de Ayudas a la Producción de la
Oficina de Proyectos 2011, Danza infinita explora las formas en las que
las ciencias biológicas persiguen un afán de inmortalidad y
transcendencia a la muerte, que se ponen de manifiesto en una
instalación que incluye la puesta en escena del ensayo clínico y del
ensayo de la danza. Este trabajo pretende abrir una reflexión en torno a
las políticas, derecho y propiedad del cuerpo y los avances de la
investigación médica y biológica, al mismo tiempo que rendir homenaje
a Henrietta Lacks, una mujer afro americana nacida en Estados Unidos a
quien, antes de su muerte en 1951, le fueron extraídas células de su
cuerpo sin su consentimiento para investigaciones biomédicas.

Cristina Busto. Generadores de Sombras

Programa: Exposiciones
Proyecto ganador del Premio LABjoven_Experimenta en su edición de
2012, Generadores de sombras supone, en palabras de la propia artista,
el inicio de una línea de trabajo que fusiona las artes plásticas y el vídeo,
componiendo vídeo-instalaciones, cuyo último estadio es una
performance audiovisual. En LABoral, Cristina Busto creará un set de
rodaje, dentro de la sala de exposiciones, con el fin de realizar una pieza
de vídeo en vivo, un plano secuencia en directo. Posteriormente, tras el
pase de visuales, este escenario permanece en el espacio.
Colabora: Consejería de Bienestar Social e Igualdad del Principado de
Asturias

Ebru Kurbak & Ricardo Nascimento. Feather Tales II

Programa: Exposiciones
Proyecto seleccionado a través de la convocatoria Oficina de Proyectos
2011. Feather Tales II es un work in progress de dos artistas que utilizan
las prendas de vestir como una forma de comunicación y de protección,
situándolas en el núcleo de unas investigaciones que vinculan el diseño y
la moda. A partir del estudio de las diferentes posibilidades técnicas,
estéticas y materiales, el dúo artístico brasileño-turco desarrolla una
serie de superficies textiles dinámicas que hacen tangibles los reflejos de
los campos electromagnéticos. En LABoral proseguirán el trabajo que
han desarrollado durante una residencia artística en La Gaîté Lyrique,
París, en marzo de este año, para desarrollar una gran instalación
interactiva en la que 180 plumas, que cubrirán la Sala de Columnas,
reaccionan al detectar las ondas electromagnéticas de un teléfono móvil.
