Title PUPPET PANEL
Location Schmela Haus / VHS / M29
Cooperation with Rita McBride Klasse, Kunstakademie Düsseldorf
“Responsibility” (Schmela Haus, K 20 Düsseldorf), “Education” (VHS Düsseldorf), “Knowledge” (M29 Cologne) and “Art” (Art Academy Düsseldorf) are the topics of a total of four panel discussions that are held in cooperation with students from the Art Academy Düsseldorf. The panels are performative and function themselves as a kind of installation in which objects, acting puppets appear together with the invited guests. They are staged as well as improvised, and move playfully between discussion and action, theory and art. The entire series of events is based on the topic of "cooperation" in the field of the arts, but also social and political aspects of artistic activity. The format of a "panel discussion" as a discursive choreography gets reinvented over and over again. The group designs all elements of a panel discussion: the conversation, the panel itself and the associated furniture.
