2ND THURSDAYS #4
TELLERVO KALLEINEN (FIN) & OLIVER KOCHTA - KALLEINEN (FIN/GER)
Supported by the Finland Institute in Germany
December 15, 2016, 8pm at WTKB Studio;
This artist couple is well known for their “complaints choir”, a project they ran in 2005 in Helsinki. Even though a ´signature work´ might help to gain public recognition, it isn’t necessarily an advantage when it comes to expectations which follow. Needless to say that for an artist couple the complexity of desire, labour and art production can turn out rather crispy in everyday life. Let´s see how they deal with it. Juren / Rauschmeier know what they talk about. Any family counsellor amongst you?
2ND THURSDAYS #3
VIKTOR SCHLOSSER (GER)
December 1, 2016, 8pm at WTKB Studio.
Berlin based German photographer Viktor Schlosser is a typical representative of an outsider artist. Even though his work has never been exhibited broadly, his artistic practice addresses basic questions about art production like, for instance, the motivation or formal and contextual extrusion into reality or the meaning of the act itself. Not unlikely American photographer Vivian Maier (1926 – 2009) his works are enigmatic and sensual at the same time and make use of historical documentation. Don’t bother to complain should you miss this evening.
2ND THURSDAYS #2
ELIZABETH WARD (AUT/USA)
November 17, 2016, 8pm at WTKB Studio.
The choreographer and dancer Elizabeth Ward works at the intersection of ballet and improvisation. She cooperated with DD Dorvillier, Miguel Gutierrez, Mårten Spångberg, Heather Kravas, Antonija Livingstone, Jennifer Lacey and Anne Juren, amongst others. We recently spoke about her roots in the United States of America and came up with the idea to speak about home and placelessness. The performance will link Georgia’s (USA) cultural heritage to urgent issues which reappear in the choreographer’s work.
2ND THURSDAYS #1
