In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2017
A group of PoC (persons of color) artists accepts an invitation for the collective use of a dance studio space for one week. It is a starting point for collaborations, conversations, and exchanging practices as they respond to the current conditions of producing dance and performance in Berlin.
On Thursday, the space opens for the audience to engage and join our on- going dialogue in the format of a salon. Here, we will host Black in Berlin as our special guest.
Black in Berlin #9 The Artist’s Role
Does the artist have a duty to reflect the times? Are black and brown artists’ work inherently political? How best do we go about the work of creating equity in art spaces and cultural institutions? As part of Tanfabrik’s Open Spaces Festival Black in Berlin celebrates one year of moving dialogue. In the February salon, we’ll discuss reflections, accountability and building longer tables.
Due to the intimate nature of the conversations, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to join the conversation.
On Sunday is a public showing of our artistic work and practices.
Kollektive Arbeit: Sarah Bouars, Zwoisy Mears-Clarke, Nasheeka Nedsreal, Martha Hincapié Charry, Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Baly Nguyen, Jessica Taylor (Black in Berlin), Idan Sagiv Richter, Enis Turan, and more
