Die Ahnengalerie is a series of portraits of Swiss performers by Eliane Rutishauser. The aim is to make the current scene visible in its diversity. Eliane Rutishauser has been photographing performance for many years, from different angles and on different occasions: As an artist who performs herself, as a photographer who documents performance events and as an interested image-maker for her own projects. In the portrait series, Die Ahnengalerie, she is interested in making the performance scene visible and in the pose between representation and "showing oneself".

On registration until 12 pm the day before by email: assistant@elianerutishauser.com

Meeting and introduction for all interested visitors in the Aktionshalle

Let's reflect together! 

Interested visitors are invited to experience the performances together, to record them and to document them in various media. Texts, sculptures, drawings, photos or products of a medium that you have brought with you will be created. The aim is to reflect on the events in the group. What have we seen, experienced, perceived?
Based on the performances, things are created that go into discussion, production and media distribution as raw products. These works will become part of the existing exhibition as a work in progress.

Please register by email by 12 pm the day before: cr@existenzundprodukt.ch

Performance

Darren Roshier

How can this performance [really] defeat capitalism ?

Location: Museum, Aktionshalle
Theme: 4 – The Fleeting Act

roshier

This performance explores the political significance of contemporary art and in particular that of performance. Through the interweaving of live moments, theoretical discourses and videos, Darren Roshier will examine the political efficacy of his project.

Can one calculate the political significance of a performance? How can it be strengthened?  Does contemporary art - through its pursuit of autonomy - neutralise all possibilities of a political reach anchored in a social reality other than that of contemporary art.

The last european Happening

with Bambazú - Carmenza Rojas Potes, Paula Andrea Orozco
Location: Museum, Aktionshalle
Theme: 4 – The Fleeting Act

Andereggen

An update of the first European happening of 1960.
Museum Tinguely is currently showing an exhibition about an artist, writer and organiser of more than 70 artistic manifestations called Jean-Jaques Lebel. He belongs to the European generation of 68, within which he was also concerned with anti-fascism, anarchism and colonialism in Algeria. He is received as the first inventor of the happening in Europe. The performance is an attempt to update this reception in relation to Eurocentrism and white feminism together with art activists from a Black feminist context from Latin America.

03-ABJ-Faggots-Friends

She Performs Everyday is a feature-length documentary film directed by British-Polish filmmaker Alex Baczyński-Jenkins. Composed of intimate moments in the lives of four artists and friends living in Warsaw, the film is a poetic account of queer life, friendship, performance and love, thriving despite and in resistance to the hostile state.

This film is part documentary, part fiction without a plot or narrative, instead, there is a plotting of an affective field in which friendship, intimacy, being-together are traced as ways of queer homemaking in hostile environments. The protagonists are Warsaw-based queer performers and the film follows their friendships and brings together moments that evoke experiences of home and home making, made manifest as queer pleasure, longing, belonging and  resistance.

Sarina Scheidegger

Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration

In the workshop «Teewebe (tea web)» with Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration – with Laura Endtner, Meta Hammel and Sarina Scheidegger – herbs and peels of citrus fruits are woven into tea bags.
Location: Museum, Exhibition Space

2022-07-06_Workshop_Sarina_Tee_G_1

The workshops «Teewebe (tea web)» by Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration, become part of the performative project Collaborating Waters by Sarina Scheidegger. Weaving together on the small looms developed by Loom combines Scheidegger's artistic interests of fabric as a gathering of different strands with Loom's textile experiments. In various formats, the Loom association creates an unconventional approach to a unique craft and thereby opens the space for a sensitised textile practice. The two workshops in the BANG BANG programme are dedicated to weaving tea, together fresh herbs and peels of citrus fruits are woven. Small fabrics are created, which through their transience are also reminiscent of the ephemeral moments of performance. Drinking tea as a ceremonial moment, ingesting and excreting liquids as well as making together are related to the themes of Collaborating Waters.

Cost: 50 CHF

The workshop will take place with a minimum of 8 registrations. 
Registration until 12 noon the day before by email to: info@loom-basel.ch

It is questions about the general fields of "action" as "human-communicative" being that led Boris Nieslony to contextualise doing.
Using the diagram "Context in Performance Art" developed with Gerhard Dirmoser, many stories in the history of performance art can be told. From the most abstruse fairy tales to highly philosophical reflections.

PANCH Social Elegance presents:

The Roma Jam Session art Kollektiv is an artist and activist collective from the context of the contemporary Roma community or with a Roma background. In their public performances and activist actions, the artists work to liquefy the fossilised image of Roma in our societies. The publication Morphing The Roma Label provides insights into their artistic work. Morphing The Roma Label is published online by oncurating.org and can be purchased there as a book-on-demand.

The book presentation Morphing The Roma Label is a panel with performative inserts and audience participation - a hybrid format as public performance and conversation-repeated narrative. The participants of the panel are invited to a multi-voiced social sculpture. Statements by accomplices and text excerpts from the publication are projected, moved and narrated. The conversation that follows will focus on the practice of performance, the process of making work, motivation and networking. We will include media in our presentation (sound, text, video).

PANCH Social Elegance presents:

When art remains mostly shrouded in (neo)colonial structures and thoughts, can performance art escape that? Can a banana escape colonialism and the market that controls the plantation?

This performative/interactive presentation emerges from the experience of a residency with Live Art Development Agency, London during which Parvez networked with many UK based art practitioners who work with similar questions and had even struggled against racism. Excerpts from the residency report will also be shared. Everyone is invited to participate and bring along their thoughts, no matter of which color.

Ana Lazarevska

The participatory performance Hybrid Forms - Hybrid Practices in Performance Art will challenge the senses and place an emphasis on self-reflexive experience.
Location: Solitude Park
Theme: 5 – Social Elegance

2022-07-14_Ana Lazarevska 02

Ana Lazarevska explores themes of perception by using participatory practices within interactive installations and performance art. Through generated open stimulation and by challenging the senses, she will put an accent on the self-reflexive experience.

Placing the body-mind construct as an observer, she will introduce activities that are challenging, imaginative, and creative. The main questions she will explore in this work are closely connected to the principles of nature and the natural state of being.

Hybrid Forms - Hybrid Practices in Performance Art

Late to the Party: Macedonian Performance on Video since 1991 is a video programme of thirteen works that explore the intersections between performance and video in the Macedonian context since the country's independence in September 1991.

Bringing together little-shown footage from the 1990s and contemporary works by emerging artists, the video programme illustrates some of the themes underlying video performance over the last thirty years - nostalgia and memory, struggles against authoritarian politics, gender, queerness, the digital double and the post-digital body.

Followed by a conversation with John Blackwood in the Pavilion in the Park.

Hybrid Forms - Hybrid Practices in Performance Art

Natasha Nedelkova’s work is often collaborative and audio-visual. She prefers for her work to be available online and easy to follow. Her work is often repetitive and melodic, using sound and voice to question the repositioning of figures and discourse. Nedelkova aims to grasp and reconfigure social and political transitions. She often uses narration as a tool to reframe ideas.

Nedelkova’s projects contrast the digital allure of realism, resemblance, immateriality, totality and converge with the pleasures and complexities of computational, algorithmic and ludic digital culture.

Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration

In the workshop «Teewebe (tea web)» with Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration – with Laura Endtner, Meta Hammel and Sarina Scheidegger –  herbs and peels of citrus fruits are woven into tea bags.
Location: Museum, Exhibition Space

2022-07-17_Workshop_Sarina_Tee_G_4

The workshops «Teewebe (tea web)» by Loom – Space for Fabric and textile Exploration, become part of the performative project Collaborating Waters by Sarina Scheidegger. Weaving together on the small looms developed by Loom combines Scheidegger's artistic interests of fabric as a gathering of different strands with Loom's textile experiments. In various formats, the Loom association creates an unconventional approach to a unique craft and thereby opens the space for a sensitised textile practice. The two workshops in the BANG BANG programme are dedicated to weaving tea, together fresh herbs and peels of citrus fruits are woven. Small fabrics are created, which through their transience are also reminiscent of the ephemeral moments of performance. Drinking tea as a ceremonial moment, ingesting and excreting liquids as well as making together are related to the themes of Collaborating Waters.

Cost: 50 CHF

The workshop will take place with a minimum of 8 registrations. 
Registration until 12 noon the day before by email to: info@loom-basel.ch

Hybrid Forms - Hybrid Practices in Performance Art

Round Table - North Macedonia with Jonathan Blackwood, Ana Lazarevska, Natasha Nedelkova, curated by Verica Kovacevska and Maricruz Peñaloza
Location: Solitude Park
Theme: 5 – Social Elegance

2022-07-17_Blackwood_Inbetween States_Square

«Performance is dead! Long live performance!»[1]

By looking at performance art from Northern Macedonia (a relatively unknown and underrepresented art scene in Switzerland), we will focus on hybrid artistic practices. By this we mean works that employ participatory, performative, process-oriented and conceptual strategies. In this way, we will question our current understanding of performance art and re-examine its relationship to documentation and other disciplines.

Nadine Seeger and Simon grossenbacher

Non-verbal tour - verbal tour of the exhibition

Location: Museum, exhibition space
Theme: 5 – Social Elegance

2022-07-19_NadineSeeger_B2©UtaGraff02

PANCH Social Elegance presents:

Nadine Seeger and Simon Grossenbacher interweave and connect information on the work of Sarina Scheidegger and the documents of the BANG BANG collection with means of improvisation, body performance and spatial actions. They thus open up the works in an unusual way, on an emotional, intellectual and physical level. In analogy to a classical guided tour, they lead us through the exhibits. 

Nadine Seeger considers herself as a recipient and literally engages with the works with body and soul. She transforms the resonance that arises in the contemplation of the works and is inspired to improvise: movement and the voice are her tools. 

Simon Grossenbacher is an actor and speaker and moves in a performative context on the edges of the performing and visual arts. He has regularly performed a guided tour entitled Tinguely Trip at the Museum Tinguely for several years.

6 hours Ritual Theatre

A water bearer connects the inside with the outside and sets the hourly rhythm.
Location: Solitude Park
Theme: 5 – Social Elegance

1995-ReneBründler01-

In ritual theatre, the restriction to body language communication results in a kind of energy play in the interactions and, because of the duration of 6 hours, also with oneself. The "empty space" with only the human bodies in it is open to the public. A water bearer (guardian of time) fills up the kettle in the river, brings the water into the room and empties it at a predetermined place on the hour. The sounds of water are always the sign to resume the phase with external movement after a phase of rest.

In Bern, St.Gallen, Geneva, Lausanne, Fribourg, Lucerne and Zurich, research meetings were held with local hosts. Protagonists from different scenes and generations gathered and remembered together. Large maps of the performance movements and activities in their abundance and diversity from the beginnings to the present day were drawn up in the form of regional maps. On the occasion of the project "Parla Palma: an exchange with artists from Ticino", PANCH Social Elegance invites a group of performers from Ticino. Together with them, a Ticino map will be created.

Location: Museum
Costs: museum admission

in cooperation with the bird's eye jazz club

Five passionate, experienced and congenial musicians create a fascinating, multi-layered sound.
Marilyn Mazur's quartet is in itself good for a whole new musical dimension. Here, however, the stunning, infinitely varied skills of one of today's best jazz vocalists are added to the mix. In Marilyn Mazur's aesthetically flawless, imaginative and wide-ranging compositions, the five voices unite to form a crystal-clear, filigree interwoven and yet extremely powerful and energetic musical universe that transports the listener to distant worlds and shines again and again with surprising changes that always flow seamlessly into one another.

FAIRart an der fAF21  in Gais_SG B2

PANCH Social Elegance:

In the pavilion in the park of the Museum Tinguely, we want to create further foundations for a FAIRart label by means of question and discussion rounds and invite important experts from art and culture.

A FAIRart label...
- to discuss the production and performance conditions for performance art with each other and to make them fairer.
- to have more transparency about the production and performance conditions for each other.
- to create more transparency in the production and performance conditions for the public.

Our criteria on fair production conditions in performance art with regard to a FAIRart - label:

1. distributive justice: distribution of funds (resources) equally to all participants.

2. discrimination: no differences in the distribution of funds and resources with regard to age, gender and skin colour, as well as status, education and level of experience.

3. democracy: democratic opinion and decision-making (everyone has a say).

Transparency: Effort, working time and distribution key are mutually disclosed. 5.

5. discussion about (un)necessary consumption of ecological resources (ecological footprint).

The gang is interested in the functions, gestures, and performance of audiences within art contexts. We explore the invisible, the unseen and collective moments in art spaces, the practice of viewing art as a form of mediation that is both mindful and absurd, playful and surrealist.

Anyone can be a part of the gang, and we do not know who is in charge, in fact perhaps you have already joined us. In any case, you can always meet us at our table, in the Tinguely Museum Park. The table is our socially elegant, shared studio space for developing our collective mind. It is not total anarchy, sometimes we make tea, with a special Bang Bang flavour. And there is always room for more (food, conversation, performance, art).

The table is our socially elegant, shared studio space for developing our collective mind. It is not total anarchy, sometimes we make tea, with a special Bang Bang flavour. And there is always room for more (food, conversation, performance, art).

SgBK – Schweizerische gesellschaft Bildender Künstlerinnen

Film: 120 years SgBK

with Ewa Felippi Metelska, Regina Simon, Elfi Thoma
Location: Solitude Park
Theme: 5 – Social Elegance

2022-08-03_Bild_SGBK

PANCH SOCIAL ELEGANCE presents:
Based on the book "Die Kunst ist eine Künstlerin - Basler Künstlerinnen der Gegenwart" by Maria Becker, published in 2021, Regina Simon and Ewa Felippi Metelska's video production aims at a flowing looking. Through minimal changes in the sequence of images, the single image is set in motion by means of breath, text, language and song. In dialogue with the artists depicted, the two artists create film sequences independently of each other. Video is the appropriate medium to give a voice to the participants of the SGBK - Swiss Society of Women Artists (professional association founded in Lausanne in 1902).

Video contribution by Regina Simon and Ewa Felippi Metelska with an introduction by Elfi Thoma (President SBGK Section Basel)

FAIRart an der fAF21  in Gais_SG B2

PANCH Social Elegance:
In the pavilion in the park of the Museum Tinguely, we want to create further foundations for a FAIRart label by means of question and discussion rounds and invite important experts from art and culture.

A FAIRart label...
- to discuss the production and performance conditions for performance art with each other and to make them fairer.
- to have more transparency about the production and performance conditions for each other.
- to create more transparency in the production and performance conditions for the public.

Our criteria on fair production conditions in performance art with regard to a FAIRart - label:

1. distributive justice: distribution of funds (resources) equally to all participants.

2. discrimination: no differences in the distribution of funds and resources with regard to age, gender and skin colour, as well as status, education and level of experience.

3. democracy: democratic opinion and decision-making (everyone has a say).

Transparency: Effort, working time and distribution key are mutually disclosed. 5.

5. discussion about (un)necessary consumption of ecological resources (ecological footprint).

Opening: Living (in) the archives of radical feminism

Bild_zu_Ausstellung

Angela Marzullo aka Makita writes:

I am working on audio recordings from the period when the practice of self-consciousness was developed in the 1970s through documents entitled "Trying to Make the Personal Political: Feminism and Consciousness-Raising". 
To this end, I began to reinterpret the tapes from the archive of "Rivolta Femminile" (1971-1972). It seemed important to me to re-transcribe all the texts and voices so that none would be lost. Therefore, I engaged feminist "sisters" for recording and transcription sessions.
 
The staging of the installation Living (in) the Archives of Radical Feminism stays true to the original action and creates a connection between the works, their forms and this reactivation work. This creates a horizontality that is peculiar to feminist discussion. 

Museum Tinguely is the fifth station of Living (in) the Archives of Radical Feminism.

Let's reflect together! 

Interested visitors are invited to experience the performances together, to record them and to document them in various media. Texts, sculptures, drawings, photos or products of a medium that you have brought with you will be created. The aim is to reflect on the events in the group. What have we seen, experienced, perceived?
Based on the performances, things are created that go into discussion, production and media distribution as raw products. These works will become part of the existing exhibition as a work in progress.

A two-day workshop 6./7.8.22 together with the architects Noémie Zurbriggen, Morgane Hofstetter, Marion Fonjallaz, Louise Plassard, Ophélie Pinto

«Architecture in itself is social labor but also a form of labor to create commoning.» (Silvia Federici)

After 7 years of studying architecture, we share the growing sensation that what we work with invisibilises a whole history of women's practices. For this intervention, we would like to reinterpret this heritage, this knowledge that we miss. Working with textiles, weaving together, doing together. 

This engagement of bodies and know-how also allows us to engage in the transformation of our own environment. We would like to gather the conditions that would allow us to build new walls, within the walls of the museum. Walls that resemble rather than divide, translucent rather than opaque, moving, light, flexible.  

«La matière ne peut s’empêcher de se toucher dans une exploration infinie de son devenir impossible. Et en se touchant, elle déploie sa perversité aveugle afin de s’associer à l'altérité, dans un mouvement de déconstruction et de (re)configuration radicale d’elle-même. (...) Toujours vivante, jamais identique à elle-même, elle est multiple, mutable.  
La matière n’est pas un simple être, mais le mouvement par lequel cet être se fait et se défait.»

interviewed by Chris Regn, Dorothea Rust

Together we are responsible for the idea, concept and realisation of our projects. After intensive research on the chosen themes, we develop and create an idiosyncratic vocabulary of movement, music and sound, language, space, images and objects out of improvisation.

We have been developing together associative experimental projects since 1997. All three of the team also work in different constellations, contexts and groups in the fields of music, art, performance and theatre and are also part of the group PARK (together with musician and artist Mario Marchisella).

As Carla Lonzi teaches us, art and feminism are love stories to be woven with oneself and with others. Between thought, desire and the historical realities that constitute us, how can all this work and not work? With a writing style based on biographies and singular journeys, this writer has made us aware of the multiple dimensions and issues of being together.

elefant lecture concert. Exercises. Imagine the colour of your elefant. Did we say transitional object? So what is the biggest elephant in the room? Bang Bang the elephant knocks on the door. Direct transmission, of course. Of course, the transition object is also in our way. We don't do the Trojan elephant thing. Although that would be a nice build on four wheels and a super performance, so all the many elephants with the sword act out. Mission accomplished. We'd have our finger right in the story of the story. Do we serve the stuff in thimbles?

The forum brings together approaches to the continuation of the ephemeral. At the same time, the forum asks about different documentation strategies that keep performance art alive "after the act", capture it, make it durable, collect it, archive it, buy it, re-perform it, re-actualise it and re-narrate it. Translations, mediation and resonances in any form will be presented and discussed.

Ancestral portrait gallery

In the studio, the photographer meets with Swiss performers for portrait sessions. By appointment!
Location: Museum, Studio

Ariane_Lugeon_Foto_Eliane_Rutishauser_DSC2239

Die Ahnengalerie is a series of portraits of Swiss performers by Eliane Rutishauser. The aim is to make the current scene visible in its diversity. Eliane Rutishauser has been photographing performance for many years, from different angles and on different occasions: As an artist who performs herself, as a photographer who documents performance events and as an interested image-maker for her own projects. In the portrait series, Die Ahnengalerie, she is interested in making the performance scene visible and in the pose between representation and "showing oneself".

On registration until 12 pm the day before by email: assistant@elianerutishauser.com

ANgELA MARZULLO ALIAS MAKITA

MAKITA FICA DE BARBARIA

Performance culinaire with Carlotta Storelli, Gracia Texidor 
Location: Solitude Park
Theme: 7 – Freckly Night

Bild_zu_PerfoCulinaire

The food prepared in a subtle way is the prickly pear, Opuntia ficus-indica or Nopal, native to Mexico and a survival plant that Angela Marzullo uses in a symbolic way. The artist cultivates knowledge of this species, the prickly pear cactus - fica in popular Latin - which expresses both the fig tree and the female gender. In the past, this plant served to demarcate territorial plots. Today, the prickly pear is rather an invasive plant and a symbol of fertile feminism.

Concept - Bar: Angelo Marzullo alias Makita
Performers: Carlotta Storelli, Gracia Texidor

Carlotta Storelli lives in Locarno and specialises in the pedagogy of physical expression. She is also passionate about performative and gastronomic themes. 

Gracia Texidor lives in Madrid and is an actress, singer and singer/songwriter specialising in feminist revolutionary songs.

Drawing, writing, formulating and ceramic formations

Meeting and introduction for all interested visitors in the Aktionshalle
Location: Museum, Aktionshalle

Let's reflect together! 

Interested visitors are invited to experience the performances together, to record them and to document them in various media. Texts, sculptures, drawings, photos or products of a medium that you have brought with you will be created. The aim is to reflect on the events in the group. What have we seen, experienced, perceived?
Based on the performances, things are created that go into discussion, production and media distribution as raw products. These works will become part of the existing exhibition as a work in progress.

Please register by email by 12 pm the day before:

Theme: 7 – Freckly Night

Les Reines Prochaines; Photo: Heiner Vogelsanger

Les Reines Prochaines present a first part of their new concert programme, new songs and performative contributions - an interwoven story a journey through the fears, worries and hopes of our time. What does everyday racism have to do with nature, the edaphone with sex, the global economy with bodies?

"And the refugee crisis with museums, particulate matter with cultural justice and meat and flies with infernal lifestyles?"

Look forward to a dazzling stage programme with numbers, songs and moderation! The "Must or not's" or "Dos or Don'ts" of performance art and the events of the last three months are available for inspiration. Great moments - inhaled, pulled through the nose, swirled in the air - reviewed.

«It could be full, it could be great; it could be big, there could be something going on.»
