The second project in the KUB Arena’s new program engages with forms of agency and representation within artistic performative practices. Five international artists, Ruth Buchanan, Simon Fujiwara, Suchan Kinoshita, Falke Pisano, and Ian White, have been invited to open up the KUB Arena for process-orientated configurations in which performance is articulated as a practice that is both aesthetic and conceptual. The project seeks to follow a critical as much as formal approach to performance art and its relationship to objectbased exhibitions. Additional concerns are questions of authorship and the specific modalities essential to the production and reception of performance.
Over a period of three months the invited artists will be developing works which not only seek a dialogue with the public but equally establish overlaps and interconnections between the respective works. The Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik (Jesko Fezer, Andreas Müller, Anita Kaspar) from Berlin have designed a spatially adjustable setting for this event, which can be appropriated by the contributors as a shared and linking element.
