About The Event
by Marianne Heier
A tale of the movement of resources through time and space, draining people’s lives, and ending up on the hands of the new. As Europe erodes under advanced capitalism, the value of time and competence change and the class divide grows. The artist and her family’s experiences are crossed with the libretto for Stravinsky’sThe Rake Progress by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman and Marie Antoinette’s rise and fall. The Performance follows the flow of resources from the former East to the West, through the South and towards the priviledged North with it’s self image as fair, democratic and just. Where will this lead? Has the dice been cast, or is it possible to imagine another outcome than the obviously, disastrous one?
The performance will be discussed in a dialog between Marianne Heier and Agnieszka Wolodzko.

Regarding collaborative practice, work conditions and internalized logics. The talk is based on Shukaitis’ ongoing research and correspondence with artists, musicians and theorist, among others. Questions regarding sociality, collectivity and the practices that creates, animates and embody these, are the starting point.

The text/article revolves around living together and how grassroot art projects and community-based initiatives counteract growing right wing and populist movements with cultural production and creative and artistic forms of expression. It delves into specific art and cultural projects and how they create new types of spaces and forms of community that enable new understanding and transgress traditional binaries such as citizens/refugees and insider/outsider.
