From Goethe Institut:

Come to the lecture “Performative Formats and their Potential as Critical Practice in Contemporary Art” by Prof. Ute Meta Bauer, art scholar and curator, Berlin-Singapur.

“Theatrical Fields” discusses the use of theatricality and performative formats and their potential as critical practice in contemporary art. The lecture will draw attention to time-based art and its producers: artists of different generations and backgrounds, navigating between art, film, theater, and dance. “Theatrical Fields” will relate to feminism as a political methodology and practice to deconstruct linear histories and ascriptions. Introduced artists will include the African–American artist Lorna Simpson, American artist and writer Judith Barry, Austrian filmmaker and artist Constanze Ruhm, and last but not least the video and performance pioneer Joan Jonas.
