In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2018
This workshop focuses on the implications of "the social turn" for performative artistic research by exploring key artists, activists, social workers, healers, theorists and visionaries (past and present) whose work embraces feminism, social justice, institutional critique, community building, conflict resolution, and care. Drawing on dance, visual art, social movements, grassroots organizations, theatre, shamanism, sex work and bodywork, our reflections on our practices and strategies become new tools for navigating interdependence and activation in order to untangle the static social/political agendas of our time. However, in the face of institutionalizing, naturalizing, and normalizing care, which can be paradoxical, paternal and problematic, this workshop’s aim is to address care/support, not just as medical issue, but as a socio-political and artistic methodology.
