Laboratory Limitations at GlogauAIR

21-27 May 2012

GlogauAIR is participating in this great initiative with a Performance Art Laboratory based on LIMITATIONS


OUTLINE: GlogauAIR proposal for this week-long Art Laboratory is to work with physical and conceptual LIMITATIONS. By progressively limiting the tools and elements that Performance Art uses, the participants will have to develop and adapt new strenghts and strategies in the final presentation of their work. By utilising and working at the beginning of the workshop with objects, words, in groups, in a large space and with different body parts, the final performance will be stripped down of all these tools and taken back to an object-less, word-less, space-less and solo presentation.

THE SECOND Performance Art Festival at GlogauAIR

Last 9-10 of March 2012

The Second is the second Performance Art Festival that GlogauAIR organized in the frame of the ELAA (European Live Art Archive) in Berlin. Enduring the curatorial statement of the festival Home Sweet Home in 2010, our aim was to assemble the biggest range of possibilities that performance art can comprise, in order to question its boundaries and crossovers. The festival was very successful and we had a great time.

The Second is the second Performance Art Festival that GlogauAIR is organizing in the frame of the ELAA (European Live Art Archive) in Berlin. Enduring the curatorial statement of the festival Home Sweet Home in 2010, our aim is to assemble the biggest range of possibilities that performance art can comprise, in order to question its boundaries and crossovers.

Performance art was established as an artistic genre in the sixties in two different backgrounds: in one hand by the avant-garde theatre and contemporary dance experiments; basing their research in non-representative and non-narrative language. On the other hand, in the postmodernist visual and conceptual art experiments searching a fusion between artistic languages such as literature, theatre, music, fine arts, architecture and theoretical approaches on politics and anthropological issues.

This bilateral origin has left strong traces in our contemporary practice and, in a moment in which performance has become popular and broad in galleries, museums and universities, there is still certain confusion in what performance art is and what is not.

In our selection for The Second we are inviting performance art projects that come from diverse practices and contexts as well as from different understanding. We would like to offer to the public a rich palette of possibilities; from works based on body transformation, site-specific or durational interventions, to works based on philosophical argumentations.

In the perplexity we aim to shake the public with fresh influence and inspiration, to open minds and encourage freethinking, interaction and creativity.

Chaconne – Die Stadt im Klavier IV

Sophiensaele - Sophienstraße 18 – 10178 Berlin

March 1-2, 2012 -20h

March 3, 2012 -18h


The artist in Residence Kazue Taguchi is presenting a stage design in the frame of the show Chaconne - Die Stadt im Klavier IV-,  a staged concerd by Yui Kawaguchi (dance) and Aki Takase (piano).


The subtle grasp each performer has of her own form of artistic expression extends to that of her counterpart, allowing Yui Kawaguchi and Aki Takase to weave a spectacular web of sound and movement. Inspired by the sensual languidness of the chaconne, they will re-examine this old form with multilayered colour contrasts and time changes within an installation of Kazue Taguchi.

Liebe Freunde,

letzten Donnerstag (23.2.2012) haben wir zusammen einen gemÜtlichen Filmabend in GlogauAIR geteilt. Wir haben drei Werke von Kenneth Anger gezeigt, Fireworks, Scorpio Rising und Lucifer Rising.

Hollywood’s Sohn, Kenneth Anger, wusste wie niemand anders die Studio Vorteile auszunutzen um eine einzigartige Kinowelt zu schaffen. Sein Stil hat nicht nur das amerikanische underground Kino beeinflusst sondern auch mit Oscars ausgezeichnete Regisseure wie Martin Scorsese.

Wir freuen uns auf folgende Filmabende.

Vortrag und Filmkommentar: Alejandro Ruiz Luque

Organisation: Raquel Crespo Neumann



last Thursday (23.2.2012) we enjoyed all together three of the most celebrated works of Kenneth Anger: Fireworks, Scorpio Rising and Lucifer Rising.

Hollywood’s son, Kenneth Anger took the advantage of the Studios and developed a very unique cinema, a corpus that span over 4 decades with a tremendous influence not only in the most outsider american cinema but also in award-winning directors such as Martin Scorsese.

THE RESCUE OF THE EFFECTS - Notes for a Theory of the Reader

// Next thursday, January 19, 20:00.
// Aditional opening hours: January 20 – 22, 15:00 – 19:00.
// General Public, Schönhauser Allee 167c, 10435 Berlin

GlogauAIR is pleased to present the exhibition The Rescue of the effects - Notes for a Theory Reader curated by our former resident artist Lorenzo Sandoval in General Public Project Space.



In a landscape where reality has long ceased to be seen without the presence of auxiliary instruments, which constructs at the same time its registration and setting it up as an archive, the experience does not conform directly in contact with the world but as a mediated doppelgänger. In this type of situation we should not forget that each of the disseminating and accumulating structures that support the architecture of the information is itself a technology with a built-in ideological organisational criteria, of inclusion and exclusion.
This project is built from reflections on creative reading with an active attitude regarding materials from libraries, archives, collections or found-materials establishing with a critical fascination some series of narrative itineraries that discover hidden relationships from the intra-history, the creation of fictions and the infraordinary to practice a critical reading of their architecture, an anarcheology of the structures of knowledge and the everyday-life as well as an analysis of structures of consciousness formation.  

This research tries to present projects that blur the boundaries between the practice of curators, historians, researchers, cultural producers and artists. Thus, located in this area of indistinct borders, it essays a significant rearrangement of the cultural materials that restate the questions to be undertaken, as well as the focus of interest. In fact, all the participating artists are engaged to or from several disciplines: in addition to the context of art itself, speak of their work also located in editing, research, music creation, educational programmes, curating, organising events and reflecting on exhibition spaces.  
These are works that start at the same time questioning both the analysis of content as the actual means of implementation and presentation: devices, methodologies, materials selection, editing, exhibition strategies or building space.

With: Daniel G. AndÚjar, Sol Calero, Constant Dullaart, Embankment, Herzbeat hotel, Bettina Hutschek, Jeleton, Christopher Kline, Phanos Kyriacou, Regina de Miguel, Alexandra Navratil, Paloma Polo, Teresa Solar, Poderes Unidos and JODI.
