Guests

Julie Andrée T.

(*1973 Montreal, Canada) lives and works in Québec. Body and space are at the center of her installations and performances. In the interplay of everyday objects, ritual, poetry, and a defiant corporality, she creates a place in which personal identity begins to dissolve. While this may seem like a utopia, the artist is committed to arriving at a shared understanding beyond personal and cultural boundaries. Her works were part of the Biennals in Havana, Liverpool such as the Festival d’Avignon, among others. She has taught at the School of Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, USA and until today at the University of Chicoutimi, Canada.

Morgan O’Hara

(*1941 Los Angeles, USA) lives and works in New York / Venice. In her performative practice of LIVE TRANSMISSIONS, the artist responds with drawings, created in real time, to people’s gestures – during work in factories, dance performances up to speeches of US presidents. Since 2016, she invites people worldwide to handwrite fundamental documents of human rights in her project HANDWRITING THE CONSTITUTION, an act of shared awareness. Her works are represented in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the British Museum, London or Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. In Germany, the artist is represented by Galerie Brigitte March International Contemporary Art, Stuttgart.

Rocío Boliver

also known as La Congelada de Uva, (*1956 Mexico City, Mexico) lives and works worldwide. Since 1992, her performances formulate a sharp critique of the oppression of women. In physically challenging performances, she confronts those present with topics invoking sexuality, excretion, pain, age, and sickness. By examining her body in an existential way, she renders visible stereotypical beliefs in society.

Tokio Maruyama

(*1956 Tokyo, Japan) lives and works in Tokyo. Since 1979, his performances are based on field work in urban environments. Drawing on global material excesses, he investigates the relation between nature, human beings, and the artificial. His performance (‘install-actions‘) is characterized by a fragile state between sustainment and collapse. In this balance, Maruyama locates the human body and a civilization threatened by disappearance.
