On January 31. District Kunst- und Kulturförderung opens a four-part series of exhibition experiments and performative exercises, the first is Achim Lengerer's Rehearsing P.W. / Documents and Footnotes. The point of departure for the series (Dis)playing paper, hours and constellations is artistic written and visual documentation in different media, including present forms of musical notations, documentations of political negotiation processes or publication projects like the French art magazine Volume, which specialises in sound art. The main focus lies on the notational character of the documents, i.e. their future capacity to be interpreted as scripts, sketches or scores for spatial experiments and motivation for actions.


Achim Lengerer works with questions concerning language, which are addressed in performances, installations and publications. Rehearsing P.W. is based on research about the aesthetics of political speech in different archives from the FRG and the former GDR. In the public rehearsal on January 31, 2013 the artist presents written documents and sound recordings about the controversial East and West German reception of a play that premièred in 1970 by the author P.W. Lengerer questions the topicality of P.W.'s assertion that "the establishment of an independent artistic region" is "no longer possible" and the historical symptomatology of a divided world emerging from correspondences, media articles, diary entries and surveillance reports

The materials of the Rehearsals of P.W. are published on the occasion of the exhibition as the 31. edition of the publication series Scriptings.
