The GoetheonMain project space becomes a satellite venue for hosting exhibitions, stagings and interventions related to JWTC, conceptualised by Zen Marie. Participants of the workshop are invited to extend their theoretical work space, through visual, audial, performed and spatial dimensions.
Friday 28 June at 18H30. Performance by El Warsha Troupe (Cairo) at 19H00.
The JWTC Project Space at Goethe on Main, will be an experimental contemporary art space, a vehicle for curating theory. Somewhere between exhibition and symposium, the project space at the 2013 JWTC aims to explore the correspondence and discontinuities between theory and practice, in ways that interrogate the categories of form and content. The Life of Forms, the theme of the 2013 JWTC will mobilize a framework: The space will be modular and multifunctional, operating simultaneously as work space, discussion/presentation environment, while at the same time restituting ideas generated from JWTC workshops, past and present. As a result, some of the interventions and collaborations in the space will be developed in a real-time relationship to the workshops in 2013 JWTC, while others will take a retroactive view of how theory manifests in art documentation by working through archival material from past JWTC’s. While participants and speakers at 2013 JWTC will be invited to collaborate with this project, there are artists who are conceptualizing a range of interventions and perspectives in advance. These include: Talya Lubinsky Raimi Gbadamosi Frances Burger Naadira Patel Michelle Monareng Georgia Munnik Lungelo Pule Tolo Pule Zak Blas Marie Ange Bordas Karin Tan Antonia Brown Georges Pfruender Mwenya Kabwe Tshego Khutsoane Kutjo Green Cynthia Kros Soundmind Lab The project space becomes a platform for theoretical/aesthetic model building, a laboratory for practice-based theory or a stage for concepts to be performed.
