Are You Alive Or Not?


Kunst – Konferenz und Festival mit dem Blickwinkel Theater in Amsterdam
18. – 22. März 2015 Vernissage
19. – 22. März 2015 Workshop
Gerrit Rietveld Academie

This project takes its inspiration from Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells, Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship: „It is hoped that these chapters might give momentum to rethinking the history of twentieth-century art through the lens of theatre rather than painting or the ready-made,“ offering students to familiarize themselves with Artaud, Brecht, Badiou, Bakhtin, Boal, Rancière a.o. through theoretical infusions and artistic research. Around 35 works will be displayed in a theatre, intersecting with a symposium convened and moderated by guest curators.
