Beauty and the Beast. Blast of the clean slate - a reading in the story of Sheikh Sanan

72h-Performance „Control Base“

Spatially divided from the performer, connected by two screens and a live stream, the visitor can observe the artist during a 72-hour timeframe, communicate with her and control her in particular. Susana Pilar becomes the instrument of implementation for secondary parties, which in absence and anonymity can influence all her actions. The performance starts at the Cultural Quarter and ends in the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn. Within the framework of the Museumsmeilenfest.

On the Marvels of the Solids
(Von der Seltsamkeit der Feststoffe)

Performativ und forschend nähert sich Sina Seifee dem Terminus „Hayula“ und erweitert seine Untersuchung durch fantasievolle Spekulationen, durch Tanz (Luísa Saraiva) und Sound (Ali Chakav). Der Begriff „Hayula“ verweist hier auf die Annahme, die Welt und das „präkosmologische Wesen“ könnte aus einem einzigen Urstoff entstanden sein. Ausgewählte Texte islamisch- iranischer Kultur zu „Hayula“ öffnen den Zugang zu anderen „Monstrositäten“.
