Reality Crime SceneWorkshop: Wednesday, 26th till Saturday, 29th November, at Bryggeriet, Malmö/SE
Public spaces will be turned into private spaces
and private spaces will be protected by law.
Reality Crime Scene is an attempt to re-transform pseudo-public spaces into spaces for social interaction, statements and fantasies. Eisenächer/Harder CLAIMS work with artistic interview methods in public and art spaces since more than 2 years in different European cities. The aim of their method lies in transforming the interview as a means of evaluating and interpreting "real people" into an artistic dialogue between the artist/activist and the passer-by. That which comes
into being is a space that exists for a limited period of time and allows for creative statements of non-creative people - statements that challenge our perception of everyday life, are motivated by unknown truths and desires, and vanish into public consciousness.
In course of MIT-DEMO 08, a festival organised by INSTITUTET, Teatr Weimar and the Dramatic Writing Research Centre in Malmö/Sweden for investigating the issue of "real action" in contemporary scenic practice by combining art and theory, Eisenächer/Harder CLAIMS will tempt workshop participants to challenge the supposed to be-reality of Malmö. Together we will turn Triangeln into a crime scene and motivate the Swedish audience to commit the crimes they always wished for.
Participants are asked to send a short text on why they would like to participate, personal interests and experiences to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each participant may bring 2-3 personal objects related to the issue of "crime", a digital photo camera and warm clothes for interventions in public space.
Number of participants: 6
Deadline: 25th November 2008.
The workshop is free of charge.
