This year the H13 2011 Art Prize for Performance announced by the Kunstraum Niederösterreich goes to the performance duo Dolce & Afghaner (Djana Covic, Fahim Amir).

Dolce & Afghaner, who are pleased to describe themselves as “irritainers”, claim to be the main representatives of the art trends of “errorism” and “dark pop”. Their performance, conceived for the Kunstraum, is entitled We came here all broken hearted, wanted to shit, but only arted.

The subject of the performance is questions of memory culture and whiteness, transculturality, migration and feminism. Important key words on this are provided by the Conference of Birds, an epic poem by the 12th century Persian poet Farīd ud-Dīn ’Attār, and Ingrid Strobl’s 1989 book Partisanas: Women in the Armed Resistance to Fascism and German Occupation.

Dolce & Afghaner design and present their “Monument to the Unknown Woman Revolutionary” in the Kunstraum Niederösterreich.
