Alexander Gerner, Marie Nerland, Lígia Soares: Zapiski o utopiji

 

Zapiski o utopiji je performans, ki na podlagi določene situacije ponudi refleksijo sodobne utopije, javnega prostora in utopičnih premislekov v umetnosti in življenju. V prehajanju med vzpenjanjem po stopnicah, gledanju v strop in srečevanju s publiko, ki sedi za mizo, se performans približuje utopiji prek različnih načinov soočanja z imaginarnimi prostori in časi.

Gostovanje predstave v Mariboru je podprl Svet za umetnost Norveške. Predstava je prejela podporo Centra za elektronsko umetnost v Bergnu, Sveta za umetnost Norveška in mesta Bergen. Raziskovalni projekt Alexandra Gernerja prejema podporo fundacije FCT (SFRH/BPD/90360/2012).

Alexander Gerner, Marie Nerland, Lígia Soares: Notes on Utopia

 

Notes on Utopia is a performance which builds a situation for reflecting on contemporary utopia, on public space, and on utopian thoughts in art and life. Passing from climbing stairs, to looking at the ceiling, or meeting the audience seated at a table, this performance approaches utopia through various modes of dealing with imaginary spaces and times. 

The presentation of the performance in Maribor is funded by Arts Council Norway. Notes on Utopia was made with support from Bergen Center for Electronic Art, Arts Council Norway, and City of Bergen. Alexander Gerner’s (CFCUL) research is supported by a FCT grant SFRH/BPD/90360/2012.
