* PASproject | Cosmonaut 100
We are happy to introduce you to our new PASproject series called Cosmonaut.
22nd - 26th of November 2012, Madrid [es]
in cooperation with Accion!MAD (curated by Nieces Correá)
Invited artists are Kirsten Heshusius [es], Björn Neukom [ch], Ida Grimsgaard [no], BBB Johannes Deimling [de/no] and Marcel Sparmann [de]
We are questioning the contemporary language of Performance Art, like Marco Polo and Yuri Gagarin questioned philosophical and physical principals in their times. Why nowadays Performance Art is using only techniques to extend the form instead of an honest search for an adequate language which points into the future? How can we create a dialogue which suits to the human relations even in the next century? From where comes our blind trust in Performance Art history and why don’t we start to be radical in questioning the profound basic of time, space and body?
Cosmonaut is a new project series created by PAS| Performance Art Studies. An attempt to connect an experimental and intuitive approach in articulation with the international Performance Art scene. Therefore Cosmonaut could be understood as a search for a shared thinking what is not immediately visible, but navigates in the space of possibilities. Based on contemporary approaches situated in stage design, referring to cinematic elements, based on light and sound or researching in alternative narratives, this project series aims to progressively and holistically shape the complex object of nowadays Performance Art.
Cosmonaut could be an aesthetic and cultural exploratory direction. It should be open to every form of creative articulation connected to the idea that Performance Art is the most relevant and innovative form of the arts to transmit life in an artistic process.
