Text

The catalog was published on the occasion of the two group exhibitions The only performances that make it all the way … (8.22.20139.5.2013) and Yes, but is it performable? Untersuchungen des performativen Paradoxes (9.25.201611.20.2016) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.

Both exhibitions are united by an activating dialogical confrontation of recent, performative practices and performances dealing with the main works of historical forerunners. Throughout the respective exhibition, two to three works were added, while also parts and objects of the performances remained in the exhibition space, thus the exhibition set-up presented itself as transparent and could be experienced by the audience.
