Studio 13 - The Drifting Pleasure

Performative Begegnung & Talk around the Table with Julian Weber, Jeremy Wade

Drifting occurs whenever I do not respect the whole, and whenever, by dint of seeming driven about by language's illusions, seductions, and intimidations, like a cork on the waves, I remain motionless, pivoting on the intractable bliss that binds me to the text (to the world).
Roland Barthes, The Pleasure of the Text.

Roland Barthes‘ quote inspires this year‘s Studio 13 series of talks. Starting from Barthes‘ drifting pleasure, we move into the vastness of the Performing Arts. Several talks about topics such as technology, money and corporality will let us explore unexpected and unusual shores and develop visions to open up possible new paths.
Using means ranging from a brief performative encounter to a discussion about their individual and collaborative artistic practices, Julian Weber and Jeremy Wade, Berlin-based performers and performance makers, will reflect on different strategies of improvisation and how these can be used in contemporary artistic creation.
Another talk of the series »Studio 13 - The Drifting Pleasure« in the frame of OPEN SPACES! takes place on 11th of February.

Studio 13 was initiated by curators Silke Bake and Jacopo Lanteri in 2015 with the aim to offer a space for exchange about working methods and interests in the field of performing arts. Concept 2018/19: Jacopo Lanteri, Curator/Dramaturg | Production: Jacopo Lanteri.

 Julian Weber is a choreographer/dancer and visual artist. He studied at HBK Brunswick and Academy of Arts Vienna. In 2013 he graduated in dance and choreography at HZT, Berlin.

In the last years he took part in several group-exhibitions, had different residences abroad and developed performances and exhibitions. He works with artists like Meg Stuart, Boris Charmatz and Tino Segahl. Weber develops his own works at the interface between choreography and visual art, in which he shifts the formats of exhibition and stage space into one another. In 2015 he won the Berlin Art Prize with his work the tourist.
