This summer’s cooperation between the festival and the 21er Haus aims at a new dimension of exchange between the visual and the performative arts.
The early avant-gardists wanted to dispense with museums altogether. The second avantgarde from the 1950s onwards took over the spaces of this institution, which was undergoing a radical change at the time. These days, it’s all about comparing notes, as it were. About testing the interactions between the contents displayed in museums and those examined by the performative arts. Now, museums increasingly open up from inside. And the choreographers and performers turn towards the museums’ “material”, which is waiting to be put in contemporary artistic perspectives. The determination with which we try to do this at ImPulsTanz 2015 signifies a new, radical step.
The current exhibition by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno, Becoming Airosolar, provides the space for a dialogue between floating sculptures and moving bodies, between gestures, language and contemporary music, initiated by the choreographers Anne Juren, Philipp Gehmacher and Christine Gaigg together with composer Klaus Schedl and netzzeit – and, of course, the audience.
