Performance: The Gigantic Jelly-Blob

6th February

Our alumna Valentina Karga presents the participatory performance “The Gigantic Jelly-Blob” during the transmediale on 6th February 2016. “The Gigantic Jelly-Blob” is part of a larger investigation into the creation, validation, and dissemination of art in the immaterial economy. The uncontrollable, diffuse monsters of financialization and precarity invade not only our work ethics but also the most personal corners of our lives. What is the role of the artist in a financialized (art) world? The viewer is invited to participate in a lecture-performance with Karga in which they will shape an immaterial sculpture, creating thus a space for communication, togetherness, and embodiment of ideas. Using fiction and metaphors, we will be looking across a capitalist horizon and share our findings, reflections, and ideas. No particular knowledge or skills are required. The event includes a sound intervention by Dimitris Papadatos. Please note: You have to register! Participants will be admitted at 7.30 or 9pm, and places are limited. Please choose your slot. more information When? 6th February, 7.30-10.30pm Where? Haus der Kulturen der Welt – K1 John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10 10557 Berlin

Everywhere? Not exactly! In the small village called Berlin is a stage exclusively for funny women. They developed their very own technique: a bunch of crisis paired with ego and environment. Encouraged by the famous Vanessa Stern, who stakes her good name on the event, so no seat stays empty. The rest is almost unrehearsed surprise, buttered bread and, of course, cult. What shall we do? The motto for February: and what not… Made by and with: Sofija Cikron, Marie- Thérèse Fontheim, //:HAL<3, Bettina Hoppe, Valerie Oberhof, Stephanie Petrowitz, Vanessa Stern u.a.
