(Friendships, Scenes, Networks)
in collaboration with PANCH – Performance Art Netzwerk CH
8 July until 7 August 2022 in Solitude Park
Artists work with what drives them and what they want. What is lacking locally, they organise themselves. And so they become artist-curators and artist-teachers, doing everything that ‘putting-art-in-the-world’ entails from curating to publicity work to administration to cleaning to hosting to documentation to writing about it and archiving. In doing so they run the risk that official institutions and the market will shirk their responsibility for a healthy climate and flow between mainstream culture and subcultures. Reciprocal invitations, whether translocal or intercontinental, are a matter of course, because without friendship, nothing happens at all.
