Salon für Ästhetische Experimente #17 - „Presents“ – Veranstaltungsreihe
A screening of performative video works on sickness, disability and connection – with Romily Alice Walden (UdK Graduate School Fellow) and Frances Breden (independent curator and member of COVEN collective)
Presents is an exhibition of short video works that don’t require an abled or physically present body in order to be performative. Ten sick and disabled artists come together to expand the idea of ‘performance’, presenting work that is embodied, immediate, and present without forcing bodies to conform to ableist norms of art-making. The show is curated by Romily Alice Walden (Graduate School Fellow) and Frances Breden (independent curator and member of COVEN collective) who will present the works and a short Q and A with some of the artists.
The series of events is a cooperation between the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Graduate School at the Berlin Centre for Advanced Studies in Arts and Sciences (BAS) of UdK Berlin. The exhibitions at HKW are free of charge on Mondays and open until 7pm.
Due to hygiene protection measures, the number of participants is limited. Please arrive in time and register at the information counter.
