Studio 13

Let‘s talk about work (and life). How to work - now and in the future. by Siegmar Zacharias, Florian Feigl, Jörg Laue, Mattef Kuhlmey

A series of talks with guests and their guests.

Studio 13 offers people in Berlin who are working in and around the area of contemporary performing arts a space to exchange ideas and opinions on artistic methods and major working areas. The working approach of an artist is illuminated and contextualised by his conversation partner in four successive conversations.
The curators Silke Bake and Jacopo Lanteri invite one artist to enter into a conversation with a person of his choice. This person then invites a third person, who in turn finds a guest to continue the thread of conversations. The first conversation starts from an artist’s own current area of working interest: this might take the form of an interview. After roughly half an hour the second person turns to the third guest and the dialogue develops further – all the way to a dialogue between the third and fourth person. The circle closes when the final person takes up the conversation thread once more with the first guest.

Siegmar Zacharias

Siegmar Zacharias studied philosophy, comparative literature & performance art. She now works in theory and practice in the field of performance. She works in situations of embodied thinking together through matters and matter. This practice collides approaches from philosophy, with pop culture, science and parascience, observing and realising the entanglement of the relations of human and non-human actors in different constellations into an ecology of performance.  Her works develop formats of performances, lectures, installations, discursive formats and sharing, dealing with questions of  agency, the contract of the willful suspension of disbelief and the critical substance it produces.They are situated between labour and humour, do-it-yourself low tech and high tech. They have been presented nationally and internationally at festivals, in theatres, galleries, green houses, clubs, the woods, and up in the sky.  She is the co-founder of the transdisciplinary group SXS Enterprise and initiator of Women On Work- WOW We work here, a platform  of exchange of Berlin based artists. www.siegmarzacharias.com
