Part 1

Discourse on Storming

Performance by SOÑXSEED (aka Soñ Gweha)

Taking inspiration from the essay Discourse on Colonialism (1950) by the Martinican co-founder of the Négritude movement Aimé Césaire, SOÑXSEED (aka Soñ Gweha) presents the poetic participatory performance The Source Part 1 - Discourse on Storming. A Supernova figure, not quite different from the protagonist in Soñ Gweha’s video in their exhibition at Kunstraum – the healing figure Nyum Supernova – will perform some of their poems by blowing them into lightening multitudes… See for yourselves!
