Digging into the Archive. An Exemplary Evocation of a Performance in the Digital Sphere

FRI, 20 11 2020, 3:00 - 7:00 pm (ONLINE)


Performance workshop
Concept: Performatorium (Olivia Jaques and Marlies Surtmann)


Digging into the Archive is investigating the archive of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich and is a cooperation of the institution and Performatorium (Olivia Jaques and Marlies Surtmann).

For the second part of Digging into the Archive we have invited the artist Malu Blume and together we continue the investigation of her past Performance But they don't seem to go away (Performancereihe 2017, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich). Because of the current circumstances we will come together for a digital experiment. With Digging into the Archive II we take an occurrence from the archive, embark on a mental journey with bodily exercises and reconstruct the performance in our imagination. The (now digital) project demands the end of observation: not a re-enactment, but a forensic composition of traces, a physical recreation of a past event.


A participation in the preceding workshop in July 2020 would be an advantage, but is not required.The participation in the online workshop is free of charge. 


The workshop will take place online due to the COVID-19 protection measures, so please Register (max. 15 persons) via e-mail: , Subject: Wühlen im Archiv II. After registration, the participants will receive a link to the digital workspace.


Digging into the Archive  is a collaboration project between Performatorium Vienna and Kunstraum Niederoesterreich.
