Title IT TAKES TIME, IT’S RISKY, IT MIGHT LAST FOREVER
Location Arp Museum Rolandseck, Forum Alte Post Pirmasens
Guests Soya Arakawa, Hans Arp, Hugo Ball, Nora Hansen, Elmar Hermann, Anne Louise Hoffmann, Taisiya Ivanova, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Olga Vostretsova
The work deals with the museum conservation of the phenomenon Dada and changes continuously in exchange with artists, visitors and guests. In front of the Arp Museum Rolandseck, an empty plinth becomes the stage for a performance program. The durability of the sculpture “Bewegtes Tanzgeschmeide” (1960/70) by Hans Arp is contrasted with the temporal limitation of the various contributions. A pedestal from earlier exhibitions is also used inside the museum. A video by the invited artist Taisiya Ivanova transmits the dialogue between the individual artist contributions and the museum context into the exhibition space.
