In the frame of ImPulsTanz at mumok - redefining action(ism)
The exhibition "My Body is the Event" at the mumok is packed with screens, CRT TV's and photo documents and virtually screams for a Live Performance as complementation. Exactly this will happen on the last day of this Field Project: a performative intervention at the museum.
Before the performance we will spend a certain amount of time at the exhibition and use the studio for our exchange. How do we – as sophisticated, refined, disciplined, reflective, civilised people of the 21st century – perceive the works of the Viennese Actionism or other Live Art Happenings of the 1960ies and 1970ies displayed in this exhibition? Are we in the position to still do that at all? Provocation has changed ever since - are lapses and taboos different today? Everything that wasn't allowed has been done. What happened to the rebellious momentum?
Together we will discuss, research and explore performative approaches, in order to reflect the documents in the exhibition: as complementation, as physical catalysers, as comment, as search for traces in the Now, as ironic twist, as culmination, as agent provocateurs, as interfaces of the bodies visiting the museum…
