Scriptings#42: Elske Rosenfeld -
A Vocabulary of Revolutionary Gestures

Eröffnung: Mittwoch 3. September 2014, 19 Uhr

Performance: 20 Uhr 

A Vocabulary of Revolutionary Gestures combines different modes of interaction with and intervention into three historical documents: a short scene from the first meeting of the Round Table of the GDR in East Berlin, December 1989, a film sequence from the end of a strike in Paris, May 1968, a clip made while circling Tahrir Square in Cairo, February 2012. The two parts of the exhibition foreground different formats and aspects of reworking the material. Scriptings’ program is official partner of this year’ s edition of Berlin Art Week.

At Scriptings, the performance “She turns her head, she lifts the pen”  abstracts a series of terms and gestures from the documents: repeating, interrupting, stopping, slowing down, speeding up, circling/revolving are concepts and, at the same time, physical movements that manifest a particular relationship between body and the Political. In the performance they also become a choreographic script for a set of on-screen and performative interventions into the material. A text/poster (Scriptings #42) functions as an additional commentary on the material around these gestures/concepts. The Poster is laid out and placed in such a way that it itself invites a small choreography of bending down, reading, circling.

Discussion (21. September, 19 Uhr) at Scriptings:
A conversation with Elske Rosenfeld, Mareike Bernien und Sandra Schäfer on issues of the montage and rescreening of historical film and video footage and its legibility in historical narratives.

PRESENTING WALK THE TALK

Arianne Hoffmann

Donnerstag 4. September 2014, Doors 20 Uhr, Beginn 20:30 Uhr

Alles, was an „Volkstanz“ erinnert, hat es schwierig in der zeitgenössischen Kunst. Nicht nur, weil der erste Wortteil in Deutschland zwiespältige Assoziationen hervorruft, sondern auch, weil sich das Zeitgenössische gern im Widerspruch zu dem Populärem definiert. Volkstänze haben etwas Altes, Weltfremdes: wirbelnder Lokalpatriotismus, in die Jahre gekommener Freizeitsport, trunkener Dorffestreigen, und nicht zuletzt – das El Dorado.

Eine Lecture-Performance, die sich anhand der populären Tanzform des „Line Dance“ mit dem Thema Fernweh beschäftigt. Arianne Hoffmann bzw. ihr Alter Ego Cindy bewegt sich zwischen kulturwissenschaftlicher Analyse und emphatischer Improvisation. Sie analysiert, kontextualisiert, argumentiert. Sie bringt Leute nicht nur zum Zuhören, sondern auch zum Einreihen. Gemeinsames lernen, proben, testen. (….) Es geht um einen Prozess der Verhandelns, nicht um eine pädagogische Vermittlung ästhetischer Vorstellungen. Es entsteht ein neuer Volkstanz aus dem Moment heraus, mit Alltagsbewegungen, leichten Schrittfolgen und natürlich populärer Musik.

BRAIN STORM BODY

Moss Beynon Juckes

Mittwoch 3. September 2014, 19 Uhr

“Welcome to Lick my Book. The vagus nerve. The network. A pathway of connections. Knowledge as a total body experience. How to learn, how to remember, how to remain awake and indivinate? I open my voice and movement research to the audience for feedback and support.”

“My research & development sessions will be investigating symbolic in ac- tion, ritual in performance, the internal & intimate as well as the external & displayed journeys, vocal & gestural extended techniques and self-in- duced emotional & chemical states. Chaos & hypocrisy may appear.”

“Questions of interest are : What is a political body?
How can I modify or create mood? How can I be affective? How can the “journey” of performance be reciprocal?”

“I sing, I move, I play for many years now. My practice has led me from Ballet, Shakespeare and Balkan song to Holotropic Breathwork and Visual Art practices.” (Quelle: grüntaler9)

Ungovernable Bodies:
Biopolitics and geographies of US-led wars in Iraq

 A talk with Dr. Omar Dewachi

Montag 1. September 2014, 19 Uhr

As part of her ongoing research and residency at Archive, Caitlin Berrigan invites Dr. Omar Dewachi to discuss the geographies of biopolitics and timescales of war and medicine:

Omar Dewachi is an assistant professor of anthropology and global health at the American University of Beirut (AUB). He trained as a medical doctor in Iraq during the 1990s and received his PhD in Social Anthropology from Harvard University in 2008. He conducts research and teaches on social medicine, global health and medical anthropology. He recently co-authored “Changing therapeutic geographies of the Iraqi and Syrian wars” published in the Lancet, January 2014. His book, Ungovernable Life: War and Mandatory Medicine in Iraq, is forthcoming from the Stanford University Press. The book is based on archival and (auto)ethnographic research that chronicle the story of medicine and statecraft in Iraq. Dewachi is currently conducting an ethnography on the politics of wounds and wounding in Iraq and Syria. He leads the War and Global Health Working Group at AUB and is one of the contributors to the Costs of War Project at Brown University.         (Quelle: Archive Kabinett)
