The different interventions try to raise questions of how to engage with time and the untimely in order to unfold the use of the temporal in memory, history and politics. Interventions into hegemonic time patterns are rehearsed through dislocating, shifting, metamorphosing, and re-framing. An asynchronous evening with a lipstick, medial references to the Omarska camp, 108 colored plastic bottles, a Sojourner Truth speech, and a fictive band, reconsiders past moments for a future use and to produce discontinuous temporalities.
A multi-video installation on the deconstruction of objects related to the spactio-temporal closet and the extent of the performatives surrounding them. * Photographs that capture the desire of the photographer as well as the position of village women who provide the central core of Chinese culture. * A performance lecture assembles bodily movements and gestures taken from footage of the end of a strike in 1968, the revolution in East Germany in 1989, and from Tahrir 2011/12, to configure the three different historical instances as a recurrent and physically constituted revolutionary outside to the political status quo. * A short performance works with the physical proximity between performer and audience in an enclosed space in relation to the postures of bodies in recent assemblies or occupations in streets and squares - an attempt to re-open a political space through physical shifts and mimesis. * From the context of a black box (stage) to the situation of a table, a performance will be restaged. The piece is a diptych composed by a choreographic proposal and a booklet. * Studying divergent transcriptions and witness reports of Sojourner Truth's speech “Ain’t I a woman”, delivered in 1851, the Read-in collective invites to experiment with techniques of (re/dis)locating text, learning by heart and listening intonationally. * An experiment of extending photography to challenge the archive as a solution for storing the visual memory of Burj al-Shamali refugee camp. This experiment is based on a long-term stay and research in the camp, southeast of Tyre, Lebanon. * A performance of artistic research principles crossing questions of the document, the subject-object relation, and transference in reflection on the historicity of the letterform V, the 8th of May, hence remembering loss and betrayal. * The video "After the Transformation" documents the voice coaching of a transgendered voice and unfolds questions of physical and political transformations through queer memory. * A short video is showing some sequences of a rehearsal situation. friendly musicians (from the groups "plaided", "bad weed" and "the golden sikhs") meet unprepaired in a rehearsing room. an experimental set up with different artefacts, posters, materials and an undefined outcome. * Three headphones placed on a sofa diffuse a narration on human meteorologies, a transparent miniature standing on the backside of a vinyl lays on a table. Videos are screened on four monitors. * Video fragments are engaged in questions that marked ex-yugoslav space. * A short video showing the Punta Carretas prison in Montevideo, Uruguay, which, in 1971, first gave rise to one of the biggest break outs in history, and then after the dictatorship, the prison was recycled as a shopping centre. Within an instance in history, this work attempts to tackle the indissoluble and conflictual fictions between a disciplined, absent-minded time and an over present past that resists to fade out.
