Cultural Garden Chelsea Leventhal Psychoanalysis of Fire More info Foyer Festspielhaus situation productions experiencing time PASSING Every person experiences time differently. You could say that we carry different temporalities within us. Do I have time? Can one possess time at all? And when does time stand still? As a listening piece for a walk, experiencing time PASSING invites you to consider different forms of time perception. The participants themselves determine the route and speed of the walk, as well as when and where they stop. More info 1st floor west “Desertion” – from the cycle “The speaking body in the system” Nora Otte & David Le Thai On the traces of families from Dresden whose husbands, fathers, sons deserted in the second half of the 19th century. No house is left standing… Empty spaces. At that time there was still hope for return. Pleas for mercy to the emperor. Longing for the loved one who broke out of the system to live. Dalcroze Hall VISIT Isaac Spencer & Franz Ehrenberg Isaac Spencer and Franz Ehrenberg explored overlaps in their artistic practice, as Franz creates his paintings and Isaac his dances. With their similarities and differences, they created situations in space in collaboration with their partners from the Dresden State Art Collections and Volkssolidarität to test the viewer:s experience. 1st floor east Almost Nothing Maria Chiara de’Nobili Almost Nothing was developed in collaboration with Vigevo, the TU Dresden and the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden. The work focuses on the processes of forgetting, the loss of memories and with it the loss of everything that makes us who we are.
