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 AT GLOGAUAIR
March 9-10, 2012 at 19:00
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.
Friday, 09.03.12 / ab 19.00- ca. 23.00 h
Saturday, 10.03.12 / 19.00- 24.00 h

Chaconne – Die Stadt im Klavier IV
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.
