Working on the imaginary object

PerformanceKunsthalle MannheimKonstruktionen der Welt2019

A group of people is working on something that is apparently invisible. The object is characterized by what happens between people in the imagination of observers and actors. How the people got into this situation is not communicated. The group got into this situation and has to deal with the given means in these circumstances. Working together is a condition. Structures become visible in action and continue to develop.

And yet everyone has their own idea of ​​the circumstances, everyone has their own questions. Complete. We have to do it together now. Approaching the complexity of the situation in order to loosen, secure and transfer individual aspects in flowing role movements. Situational approach to social conditions. Don’t be afraid of abstract problems! We are working on it together.

Wie wird Arbeit sich in Zukunft gestalten und welche Rolle spielt dabei was zwischen den Menschen passiert? Wie mit abstrakt erscheinenden Thematiken und Konflikten umgehen? Können wir handlungsfähige Gemeinschaften bilden, die in der Lage sind flexibel und beweglich auf Situationen zu reagieren und diese durch ihr Handeln zu formen?

The work was created as part of Constructions of the World, Kunsthalle Mannheim and the association of various artists as a VolumeV working group.

Volume V is an open working group that was located from September 2018 to March 2019 in the Volume V MASH Center (MASH: Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) in front of the Kunsthalle in Mannheim.

We research how art and economy can be rethought in public space - through interactive work, with local situations and in contact with people.
