Hidden Choreography and The Last Hour in Freiburg

We are excited to present our latest new media work The Hidden Choreography of the Everyday in the cinema room (Schau-Raum) at the Museum für Neue Kunst in Freiburg as part of Depot Erbe, an exhibition and performance programme by Anne Kersting. The exhibition runs till 1st May and is open Tues – Sun 10am – 5pm.

On the opening night, Saturday 25th March, we have the added challenge and pleasure of performing The Last Hour on the main stage of the Theater Freiburg at 9.30pm

We look forward to seeing you there and please forward to any interested parties.

Hidden Choreography begins in Freiburg


We will be in Freiburg im Breisgau between 23 – 27 January beginning the handing out of GPSs to the public for our new project The Hidden Choreography of Everyday Life (German title: Die Verborgene Cheorgrafie des Alltags). For this Depot Erbe commission, culminating in March at the Museum für Neue Kunst, we are wondering; Are we really free to go where we want? Are our movements very predictable or do they surprise us? When we put them all together, what sort of a portrait do we make of our surroundings? Related to our previous works A Day in the Life – the Walkers of Birmingham and Crossing Paths, this time we will be making more of a cinematic, film outcome which will include other visual and sound material other than the GPS animation (thanks as always to Peter Vasil for his programming skills).

If you have friends, relatives and aquaintances in Freiburg who would be willing to have their daily journeys tracked for a day and see them become part of a film. We will be hanging round the foyer of Theater Freiburg when there are performances all that week or you can drop us an email to make an appointment. The GPSs can also be borrowed over the next month and we will return in February to interview participants.

We will give a performative artists’ talk on Thursday 24th November at 7pm as part of the Linear Momentum group exhibition at the Galerie im Körnerpark in Neukölln (Schierker Str. 8, 12051 Berlin), curated by Conny Becker

We will present our daily practice of recording everywhere we go with GPS and the outcome of this as trace and line. We will also perform an excerpt from Narrating Our Lines, in which we play an animation of journeys from previous years and try to remember the human events behind the abstracted traces. The animation was created for us as open source software by Peter Vasil.

Our engraved acrylic piece All Our Traces in Berlin 2011 and Dan’s Drawing Machine II are also on display as part of the exhibition which runs until January 22nd.
