Open Space

performance - exhibition 

Projekt Curator: Gülsen Bal

participating artists:

Libia Castro und Ólafur Ólafsson
Ana Hoffner
Şener Özmen und Cengiz Tekin

The exhibition the truth is worth to risk... brings the works that engage an evolving process of producing a pluralistic approaches in its multiplicity provoking an encounter together on a visual and discursive level.

  Coinciding with remaining and current political situations in various corners of the world that propagate the actual fact of “changing places, losing the way and the expectations of return”, this inter-disciplinary project appears to aim to create a dynamic structure against/beyond representation by introducing an incomplete open system to static structures. In addressing these matters of concern, however, a far broader issue emerges. Key to this is the processes of “existential territories”, and this requires going beyond the boundaries of dichotomies in search of “possible futures”; allowing for undefined constraints and their far reaching consequences to be transcended.

Ana Hoffner

„Wissensdramatisierung  –  Sprechstück“ 

  In this performance piece Ana Hofner investigates post-dramatic theatricality and the associated dissolution of the structure of theatre as part of present processes of subjectivication. By questioning theatricality and drama, knowledge of acting and actors and their learned roles, is created. Through that, positions of speaking are being formed, for these subjects, who own knowledge about drama and its occurrences. With the help of this knowledge, the speakers of post-dramatic theatricality create post-dramatic situations, which, located between reality and theatrical fiction, cannot withdraw from being involved in power-relations. This drama tries to dramatize once more the role of the speaker and his forms of knowledge.  

Ana Hoffner is a performance artist and works in the realms of queer- and migrant- (post) colonial politics. Her performative practice investigates elements of re-enactment and intervention, in order to articulate an artistic and politica form for the present. At the moment she is working on questions of homo-normative and queer politics within the discourse of the european union.

Mythopoetic Performance on the Emergence of Collective Intelligence


Concept: Katherina Zakravsky

Performance: Katherina Zakravsky, Thomas Edlinger

Text: Katherina Zakravsky, Thomas Edlinger

Sound: Andreas Wiesbauer

Where do you go with all the knowledge in your head ?


Virtually, there is a collective intelligence – where is its forum, its format, its form? So many others, alive and dead, familiar and strange, are permanently thinking with my mind. How to honor this multitude? Why claim old dead authorship when moving through the city is like swimming in intelligence?


And if we have to found a city of refuge, if we have to retreat to a new Atlantis, what will be the books, the films, the sciences, the arts, the myths we will take to this island? (By the way, I have not watched it, but why has “Lost” been such a cult?)


The darkness, that would be virtually the completeness of knowledge, the white page completely covered with scripture. The amazing freedom, – and task – , to re-organize it all, anew.


Its like in this Cronenberg movie, when Allegra Geller says “I am going to download “eXisTenz” into each one of you.” What if you would wake up in the game and it would be – total darkness?


And always another city within the city.” (Gilles Deleuze: Logics of Sense)

speeding up downwards: doing underground


The usurpation of subcultures by the mainstream makes their differentiation redundand. By now, the mainstream has even been orienting itself towards the minorites and is  significally responsible for the creation of the commodity of "minority". This raises the question if at all or on which basis we can distinguish between a product of affirmation from a product of resistance.
In the lecture-performance the performer will use music subcultures, especially the Riot Grrrls movement, as a springboard to her world of contemporary dance and theatre. “doing underground” means also doing your own thing by making anti-bourgeois gestures, poses of resistance and behaving in dissident ways.


Brigitte Wilfing's artistic work as a choreographer, music-/performer and contemporary dancer is marked by the collaboration with artists of different media and theorists. Her inter- and transdisciplinary projects focus on popcultural topics, on the combination of conceptual art with street art and the connection of theory and practice.

In her music-project demimondaine she adopts both masculine and feminine behaviour patterns/movement codes to create a nontrivial physicality. Thus sexual identities become a pleasurable playground for performative practices and bodypolitics. Her work can take the form of performances, lecture-performances, installations and concerts.
