Ali Moini (FR/IR)
MY PARADOXICAL KNIVES
Ornament as a promise was the premise of the pattern-and-decoration movement. Committed feminist artists in the United States in the 1970s like Miriam Schapiro or Robert Kushner brought color, materials and variety of forms back into the art, integrated ornamental traditions – from Islamic to North American-Indigenous to Art Deco – opening up the view beyond the contemporary geographic and historical boundaries. The Iranian dancer, theater maker and choreographer Ali Moini presents his famous poetic solo My Paradoxical Knives in the exhibition: a flowing choreography to a poem by Persian poet Rumi.
Duration: 30 min
The ImPulsTanz box office at mumok will already be open two hours before the performance starts, when Ali Moini begins with the poetic preparation of his piece. You are more than welcome to join him in the process.
