In the Centre of one’s own Periphery

Five Performances 2021

In the Centre of One’s Periphery 2021 continues on Thursday 26 August 2021 at 6pm with Jana Prepeluh.

In her performance, Jana Prepeluh examines local and global socio-political conditions through self-reflection and with a critical eye. She explores the relationships between brain and body, between somatics and psychology, and the relationship of the individual in relation to external systemic structures. She also seeks to visualise links between sovereignty and controlling power.

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.
