The Many Lives of Tarek X
Installation · Time to Meet
In the frame of Open Spaces - Laughing & Loving
»The Many Lives of Tarek X« is an anticipation fable, a hybrid experience blending video-art, story-telling and electronic music in which Gérald Kurdian unfolds the objects of a research initiated together with an ensemble of practitioners, performers and activists who use sex and alternative intimacy to heal. Its main materials are photographies and films contextualised as the potential fragments of an anticipation movie: the chronicles of Tarek X, a bewildered anti-hero, on his way to meet a community of radical lovers trying to cure themselves from capitalism.
A manifesto for the sensorial revolutions to come.
This presentation will be accompanied by a choir of the village.berlin.
Afterwards at 22:00: Time to Meet the Artist
