Lecture with discussion in German language in the frame of the TANZPAKT Dresden Academy
Duration: 1 h incl. Q&A
Between networks, funding, (art) market (constraints), applications, public relations, festivals and venue confirmations, but also, for example, voluntarism and political commitment, artists move and produce nowadays. Under the pressure of time for the next deadline, there is usually no time for reflecting on one’s own modes of production, for wishing for and imagining new structuring possibilities and working strategies.
On the other hand, the Sars-Cov-2 pandemic highlights many weaknesses of the system. Other solutions are more than necessary. Only, how can new solutions be designed that distance themselves from the primacy of technocracy, corporate ideology, quantity ideology, and neoliberal structures of leadership and organization? Is that even possible? And desired?
