Anwendung und Zuwendung, oder: nützliche Kunst? / Der Performance-Effekt vol.2

01/10/2017 00:15

Our colleague Joy Kristin Kalu is going to be part of a series of talks hosted by Gessnerallee Zurich, Switzerland. The talks focus on the dissolution and merging of borders between theatre, choreography, performance and the visual arts.


Together with artist and lecturer Daniel Hauser she will to talk about "Anwendung und Zuwendung, oder nützliche Kunst?", navigating the ambivalences of profitable aesthetics, of 'give-and-take' in the realm of contemporary art practices. The aesthetic is increasingly linked to demands for measurable impact. How can its usefulness be conceptualized, and who profits from it?
