Live Transmission
(Situation, Reception)
12 until 14 August 2022

The question explored here is that of perception and the unmediated experience of a work of art that is made possible by the simultaneous presence of artists and spectators at a single performance. Audience and performers share the same time and the same space, which is charged and transposed by the breathing, animate presence of all those occupying it. This co-presence assigns the audience a special role: To what extent is its gaze of constitutive importance to the work being watched? This initial set-up of transmission and identification then spawns translations, communications, and responses of all kinds. Sharing and talking about what was shown will henceforth be crucial to its continued existence.
