DURATION & DIALOGUE II
PERFORMANCE ART FESTIVAL/SYMPOSIUM
Duration & Dialogue aims to create an inviting environment for people to experience curated performance art pieces, and then offer facilitated forums for audience members to talk with the artists and experts in the field about their experiences.
As a pale comparison to the live event, portions of D&D II will be live streamed on the KC YouTube Channel and the Duration & Dialogue website.
APAB member Anna Berndtson performs via live stream to Toronto on Saturday the 28th January 17:00 – 20:00 CET
This performance explores the notion of a live collage performance.
As we celebrate 100 years of the DADA art movement and its exploration of the boundaries of art, we also commemorate the tragic First World War Centenary. At present, however, it doesn’t feel that far away as it did when I grew up in the 1970s and 1980s. War, terror, and political and religious extremism have become a part of our daily lives; if not down our own streets, then just a click away and very close in the constant news flow and media coverage.
Since DADA emerged amid the Great War, I am eager to explore the impact our current horrifying situation can have on art today. Fascinated by the photomontage of Hannah Höch, a prominent member of the Berlin DADA movement, I am exploring what collage work can mean to me as a performance artist.
