Project direction: theater & kunst: das Schaufenster

In Europe since the early 1990s a dynamic field of artistic body work has
established itself, whose protagonists have engaged themselves in redefining
dance and performance art. In many western and also eastern European cities
young scenes and independent projects have emerged. What they share is an
interest in conceptual art formats and a scepticism regarding the established
institutions in the dance and theatre field.
With over 40 speakers the inventory: dance and performance congress for the
first time brings together leading figures from theory and practice in these new
movements to an analysis and presentation of their work. Performances and art
interventions by Jérôme Bel (F), Július Koller (SK), Maja Bajevi_ (BIH/F) and
Cezary Bodzianowski (PL) accompany the panel programme.

Nom donné par l’auteur

Concept: Jérôme Bel
Performance: Jérôme Bel, Frédéric Seguette

A stool, a vacuum cleaner, a flashing light, a pack of salt, a French
dictionary, a bank note, a pair of roller-skates, a plastic ball, a rug and a
hairdryer: 10 objects become the material for the cult performance by the French
choreographer Jérôme Bel. In this "theatre of things" or "ballet of the 10
objects" Bel, together with Frédéric Seguette, moves the objects according to a
fixed plan. Amusingly and with a wink, the approaches of the historical
avant-garde are deconstructed.

[Utopian Futuristic Operation]

Concept: Július Koller
Performance: Július Koller

Since the beginning of the 1960s the Slovak Július Koller (*1939) has been
working on an oeuvre that in its stringency, obsession and uniqueness should be
regarded as one of the most uncompromising settings of European contemporary
art. Koller produces performative balancing acts, which he calls
"anti-happenings". He unmasks the imperative that art is there to decode a deep
truth about us, our bodies and our culture, and replaces it with a performative
act: engagement rather than arrangement . . .

Maja Bajevi_(BIH/F)
Avanti Popolo

Concept: Maja Bajevi_
Performance: Maja Bajevi_

Maja Bajevi_lives and works in Paris and Sarajevo as a performer and visual
artist. Alongside works in which Bajevi_works on her own specific identity,
there are always projects reflecting the situation in her homeland in former
Yugoslavia. In her recent performances – such as Avanti Popolo (2002) –
Bajevi_has expanded this perspective to the context of a globalised world – she
finds her material in the "warehouses" of many different cultures and
ideologies. "With Avanti Popolo she began to cross the border: Twenty patriotic
songs sung together, side by side, show that in the end the only thing they
produce is aggression." (Dunja Bla_evi_).


Concept: Cezary Bodzianowski
Performance: Cezary Bodzianowski

The performance artist Cezary Bodzianowski, born in Poland in 1968, comes from
the creative arts collective of the Warsaw Foksal Gallery and has created a stir
with his unusual and unexpected interventions and actions in various forms
(objets trouvés, tableaux vivants or happenings). This time, in homage to the
Dadaist Kurt Schwitters, Bodzianowski is attempting to "get rid" of the pain in
various places in the city. The length of the performance in the TQW / Halle G
will depend on the intensity of the stimulus the artist and the recipient feel .
