In the Centre of one’s own Periphery

Five Performances 2021

At the centre of its own periphery 2021 will come to an end on Thursday 18 November 2021 at 6 pm with a review of the past years.

After four years and 18 performances the series “In the center of one’s own periphery” ends. The studio im HOCHHAUS was entered as space-time and moved centerly as a fringe. The curators Anja Ibsch and Teena Lange invite to a performative reflection. Together with performers and various documentation materials, memories will be exchanged and diagnoses ventured, in short: there will be a celebration.

Since 2018 the artist Anja Ibsch and the curator Teena Lange have curated and realised a series of 13 performances, specifically developed for the communal gallery studio im HOCHHAUS.

The series will be continued in 2021 with five further extraordinary artists.

When you move in the centre of your own periphery you focus on the distance to your own self. Thus, not every act, not every (performative) gesture has to focus on the self. The invited artists are asked to deal with this perspective in performance-as-art, taking into account the specific location, topicality and history of the studio im HOCHHAUS.

A discourse evolves about (not) happening, (not) seen acts.

What is at core, what is in_adequate and where does the periphery actually begin?

As in 2018, 2019 and 2020 the subsequent joint reflection, the Artist Talk, will be an essential component of the program. The gallery space could and will always be left peripherally.
