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.
We look forward to seeing you there and please forward to any interested parties.
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.
Dan is performing the part of ‘Hetero’ in She She Pop’s production 50 Grades of Shame. He will be replacing Jean Chaize for the upcoming dates at the Mousonturm in Frankfurt (17-19 November) and Kampnagel in Hamburg (3, 4 December).
We are delighted to be part of Conny Becker’s Linear Momentum group exhibition at the Galerie im Körnerpark in Neukölln, Berlin. The exhibition opens on Friday 4th November from 7pm and will continue until early 2017. We will perform a live version of Narrating our Lines in the gallery on Thursday 24th November at 7pm. Our engraved acrylic piece All Our Traces in Berlin 2011 and Dan’s Drawing Machine II will form part of the exhibition.
On Thursday 11th December we are taking part in General Public in Exile and Errant Bodies‘ event reality is a very strong move at KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Auguststraße 69, 10117 Berlin). Doors open at 7pm, 3 Euro admission (we are currently scheduled to be the first performance, at 7pm)
We will be performing an extract from our live durational performance Narrating Our Lines, where we set the database of our GPS traces running and use it as a prompt for our memories of where we were and what we were doing.
“Errant Bodies and General Public open the doors for an evening in exile, presenting performances and works that use performance as a term. Chosen kin plays an important role, as do relationships, expanded networks, political action, music, and silent interventions.
How are fractured, individual narratives and biographies related to cultural-geographic histories, and how do they come to play in a collective at large? There is only a fine line between (self)definition and questioning existence as such. You could take it with a smile, but you can just as easily fall apart completely at the confrontation with the foreign that exists inside ourself.
With Gilles Aubry, Fabienne Audeoud, Antonia Baehr, Serge Baghdassarians, Graw Böckler, Chat, Kane Do, Discoteca Flaming Star, Ernesto Estrella, Deli Gleba, Akın Kazuk, Eva Meyer Keller, Käthe Kruse, Edda Kruse-Rosset, Brandon LaBelle, Michael Laurent, Ligna, plan b, Kirsten Reese, Catarina Santos, Heidi Sill, Annette E.

We hope to see you there
This Sunday (9th), we will be presenting the result of our residency at Ausland in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin (Lychener Str. 60) at 5pm. It will be a performance lasting about an hour with a working title of The GPShow.
As some of you know, we have recorded every journey we make outside with a GPS since 2003 (Dan) and 2007 (Soph). For The GPShow, we will concentrate on the last five years, producing new drawings, visualizations and videos while we explore performatively, what it means to get to know the GPS system through a daily practice, what the consequences of this use might be as it is increasingly embedded into the technology we all carry and the systems we rely on and ask what agency we have over the equipment we seemingly own.
Entrance is 3 EUR on the door. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday afternoon.
