Performing for Dynamic Resistance by Jojo Ahlkvist and Hedda Bauer at Kristianstads Konsthall

 

20.05.2022

En av 10 performers i Jojo Ahlkvist och Hedda Bauers Dynamic Resistance.

En platsspecifik version av performanceverket, skapat 2018, där konstnärerna utforskar teman som osynlighet, inkluderande underhållning och exklusivt deltagande. Kostymerna som bärs av konstnärerna är gjorda för att spegla den plats och rum de refererar till, i det här fallet Kristianstad och utställningen i konsthallen. Det framförda performanceverket visar olika sätt att utföra makt, eller bristen på nämnda, i ett offentligt rum. Dränkta i små klockor rör sig kropparna genom utrymmet oupptäckta eller inte.

Performing for Dynamic Resistance by Jojo Ahlkvist and Hedda Bauer invited by Karolin Braegger at «Laube zur schiefen Lage» Das Cabaret Voltaire on Münsterhof, Zürich

27-28-08-2021

A collaboration between Cabaret Voltaire and Benedikt Bock. Invited artists and authors: Johan Ahlkvist & Hedda Bauer, Karolin Braegger, Anne Fellner, Kasia Fudakowski, Marius Goldhorn, Johanna Kotlaris, Miriam Stoney, Claudia Stöckli & Raphael Stucky

Programme


The installation «Laube zur schiefen Lage» will be on display in the Münsterhof from 27 August to 4 September. All works and traces by the participants can be seen daily between 17:00 and 22:00.

No registration necessary.

 

Somewhat out of place at Münsterhof stands the «Laube zur schiefen Lage» – a cobbled-together art object that serves both as an exhibition space and a stage. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Zunfthaus zur Waag, in whose large hall the first Dada soirée after the closure of Cabaret Voltaire took place on 16 July 1916. At that time, the Dadaists explained their drawings, recited manifestos or danced in masks. More than 100 years later, Cabaret Voltaire is engaging with the guildhall from a distance with its own stage. For a period of almost two weeks, the «Laube zur schiefen Lage» becomes a public place in the field of tension between anti-bourgeois gestures and bourgeois culture, world reference and world escapism, community and individuality, the small and the big.

The basic framework of the «Laube zur schiefen Lage» is made by the artist Benedikt Bock, who conceived the project together with Cabaret Voltaire. On three evenings (27.08., 28.08. und 04.09.), invited artists, authors and musicians will present short contributions. The result is a colourful mesh of contemporary narratives that reflect directly or subtly, critically or humorously on what it means to be human in these challenging times. Another point of foucus is the reflection on the «contemporary» as a narrow, normative aesthetic practice in contemporary art. The «Laube zur schiefen Lage» especially plays with the genre of «cabaret art», which the Dadaists already referred to by naming their artistic space «cabaret»: the cabaret as a socially critical (left-wing) place that goes beyond entertainment and thereby questions the boundaries of high art. Outside the White Cube, certain debates are shown in a different light and meet a wider audience. «Laube zur schiefen Lage» articulates itself in this shift and allows space for doubt. Art-making is always closely connected with vulnerability and the question of what is communicated and what remains hidden.

 

On the contributions and tracks of Friday, 27 August:

Amid guild houses and efficient busyness, Karolin Braegger asks what it means to «perform». In her artistic practice, she thinks from the concept of appropriation about what there (still) is to say: be it as a host or with paintings and fabric objects, for example the work Soso (2021) made of toile, a textile that is mostly used for fitting (clothing) or as a possible background (painting) and expresses itself in the arbour during opening hours. As host, Braegger invites positions that represent her interests and expand or extend her work, such as the queer power play Dynamic Resistance by Hedda Bauer and Johan Ahlkvist. In the work, the artists explore themes of invisibility, inclusive entertainment and exclusive participation with the help of performers Hilma Bäckström, Charlotta Öberg, Luca Büchler, Jessica Comis and Alexandra Paya. The costumes, one of which hangs in the «Laube», are designed to reflect the space they relate to, in this case Cabaret Voltaire and Münsterhof.

Organised with Martina Mächler and Anastasia McCammon the artists Karolin Braegger, Hedda Bauer, Johan Ahlkvist and Kasia Fudakowski have already been invited to Cabaret Voltaire as part of «Cracking Up and Staging Down» in April 2021. Due to the pandemic, the performances could not take place at that time.

Art Residency, Foundation #1 with In Each Others Company
 

16-21.08.2020

Took part in the first gathering and residency Foundation #1, within the project In Each Others Company.

Foundation #1 was arranged by Malin Arnell, Mar Fjell and Andrea Svensson with the support from / in collaboration with The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Saari Residency in Finland and Varvsarbetarhuset, Stockholm.

Text about the gathering:

 

"

In Each Other’s Company – A puddle for situated and dispersed embodied worlding.

We, Malin Arnell and Mar Fjell, understand In Each Other’s Company (IEOC) to be(come) something in-between a school, an artwork, an entanglements of kin, a punk band, a dance company for sustainable long-term queer engagements.

We feel a strong need for a company – as an unlearning and re-learning puddle – where we as queer identified intersectional feminist critters can intra-actively merge and become-with through new constellations. It is especially urgent in this timespace, when it has become clear that the transnationalist capitalist, anthropocentric and odd-phobic system only melt down the worlds resources, and limits our naturecultural queer potentials.

We imagine our “foundation”, the puddle, in all its muddiness to function as (a new) starting point which engage itself in the buildup of energy and the creation of new fault lines that disrupt, unsettle, and undermine even the most seemingly solid grounds.

Our experience of daily structures of embodied engagements through different task-like proposals, has made us understand our strong need for a sustainable long-term structure of being IEOC. We are developing this experience and IEOC’s becoming with the support from / in collaboration with The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Saari Residency in Finland and Varvsarbetarhuset, Stockholm.

Projects that has unfolded within this structure are: 6 scores for Entangling Matter and MeaningForest FormationsMapping the Pauses and our curatorship at Konsthall 

Foundation #1 is the first gathering within and through In Each Other’s Company. This workshop took place August 16-21, 2020 in Varvsarbetarhuset in the nature reserv at Sätravik. Altogether we were 11 persons including one chef. For further info read the Open Call.
