Arbeit -1.0

performance & installation / collab with wassili widmer / 5h / 2018

Dynamo, Zurich, CH

An outdoor office as the setting of this performance is the absurd working environment, the goal is to try to 'improve' their business. Work meetings are being held, the audience gets included as they approach. Statistical analysis is being done, discussing business performance and efficiency of the firm. Results get presented on the walls and the desk, regulations and new strategies get negotiated. More and more the artists start to use office material in a different way. Putting things on top or next to other things shows a different dealing with the abstraction of capitalism. With time the performers are deconstructing their system and creating a new set of (artistic) values within the given context.
