Month of Performance Art Berlin: FAMILIAR BINARIES

16 May 2013, 8 pm
Month of Performance Art Berlin
Seda Yildiz

On the occasion of the Month of Performance Art Berlin and in the framework its ongoing series of exhibition experiments and performative exercise (Dis)playing paper, hours and constellations District presents the performance Familiar Binaries by Seda Yildiz. Grounded on the exploration of the contradictory potentials of what we refer to as "unknown", Yildiz' ongoing project Familiar Binaries takes an indirect and doubtful approach to unsettle epistemological narratives within pieces of history, theory and art. As a work in progress, the performance is a collage, a temporary archive or book in the making which questions ideas of authorship, representation and completeness.

17 May 2013, 7 pm
(Dis)playing paper, hours and constellations
Performances by Miss Machine, Achim Lengerer/ Scriptings, Fausto Majistral and Conversations with Susanne Husse (Curator District), Jana Sotzko and Theresa Stroetges (Musicologists, curators of VISUAL AID), Roman Schramm and Paul Sochacki (artists, SKULPI III).
Starting point for the series (Dis)playing paper, hours and constellations are different forms of art publication projects respectively artists' expanded drawing and writing practices. From January 31 to May 25, 2013, District Kunst und Kulturförderung Berlin presents four exhibition experiments and performative exercises under this title, which are developed by artists, theorists and curators from the edition and magazine formats Scriptings, VOLUME, SKULPI III and the research project on contemporary musical notation, VISUAL AID.
On May 17, the participants of the four different exhibition parts meet to reflect their contributions and to discuss the project (Dis)playing paper, hours and constellations in an open conversation. The conversation will be framed by the music performances of Miss Machine and Fausto Majistral as part of VISUAL AID and a lecture by Achim Lengerer/ Scriptings on his Rehearsing P.W.: documents and footnotes.
