Keeping Distance – Keeping Presence: An online conversation, a digital meeting and performance works!
Culture is running slow during pandemic times, but not everything shuts down, people find new ways. In this event, we meet artists who carry out projects despite the prevailing state of emergency. What are the means and forms to continue working? What do performance art practices in times of social distancing, isolations and lockdowns look like? Where do we go to meet? – online? – outdoors? – to nature?
