"Must or not"
Panch, Kaskadenkondensator, Basel 2016. The second edition of Performance Events: something we always wanted to do and have never dared: Frightening, preferences, classic and never shown in performances. In past Panch meetings the desire came to have a practical dealing with questions. Hence the idea in Kaskadenkondensator was to have a meeting and a performance whereby it goes on the types of performance that particularly impress - both in a positive as well as a negative way. The event „Must or not“ wants to take these suggestions seriously and go to discussion performatively. Therefore this weekend in March there’s the opportunity to develop and try something. Mit: Andrea Saemann, Chris Regn, Claudia Grimm, Gisela Hochuli, Glynis Ackermann, Joelle Valreio, Markus Goessi, Mirzlekid, Nara Pfister, Pascale Grau und Rolf Schulz.


" Six without material" (6 h)
The 6 performers work for 6 hours at 6 different locations in Basel, Zurich and the Canton of Bern in a public space, without material. It is every man/woman for him/ herself and at the same time a collaboration. It is a process of letting in, of beco- ming empty, of recharging, of exhaustion, of repetition, of development and much more. Those watching have the opportunity to pass by, to remain standing, to watch or to integrate themselves into the situation, but they are also presented with the possibility of discovery, of wonder and of being irritated. For example, who is in fact the “performer”, who the passer-by, what is “performative” activity and what is everyday activity? Boedi S. Otong, Glynis Ackermann, Markus Goessi, Gisela Hochuli, Monica Klinger und Thomas Zollinger. 2011.


„Art of Encountering“
The project idea for „art of encounter“ was developed by Boris Nieslony (Cologne) and launched. Art of the encounter takes place every two years with the following idea: Seven artists from Asia encounter seven local, artistic positions in an encoun- ter with the aim to bring into view, methods, models and artistic strategies. The subject of contemplation of the presentation is: Similarity, friction and differences of the models, methods and strategies in different publics to make „implicitly the public space“ . In a series of performance events in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc., the performance artists perform in urban areas in the form of a ‚City Walk‘ - as well as performing in conference rooms.
