The bone man is central in the medieval death dances, he brings the living into the realm of the dead. In our contemporary dance of death, the figure transforms, can take on many forms and wears different faces. It is not only seen as a representative of death, but also stands for the problems of our time. Climate catastrophes, disappearing glacier ice and perpetual fires, the spreading diseases, wars, reintroduced abortion laws and evocations of the end of the world. In the face of crises that seem almost biblical, there is a need for a memento mori. One that shows that without awareness of finitude, no future life is possible. Our dance of death is multi-perspective and interdisciplinary: a dance performance with live, pulsating sounds from analog feedbacks and a book that gathers literary voices.

Helmi Vent im Gespräch

Helmi Vent im Gespräch

18 Uhr

Vexer Verlag Büro Berlin
Gneisenaustrasse 54
10961 Berlin

Helmi Vent, die Protagonistin des Buchs Lab Inter Arts. Einblicke in das Performance-Labor »Hätte Hätte Fahrradkette« wird im Vexer Verlag Büro Berlin zu Gast sein.

Die emeritierte Universitätsprofessorin an der Universität Mozarteum Salzburg, wird Einblicke geben in ihre Laborarbeit und ihre Arbeitsweise. Dabei wird sie auch Menschen vorstellen, die in Lab Inter Arts-Projekten, besonders in »Hätte Hätte Fahrradkette«, mitexploriert, mitentdeckt, mitdiskutiert, mitkonzipiert haben.

Vents Laborarbeit zeichnet sich durch experimentelle, interdisziplinäre und performative Facetten aus, die sich in Mairitschs Buchkapiteln widerspiegeln wie beispielsweise der Körper, das Stimmen, das Zuhören, das Unvorhersehbare.

Die Veranstaltung wird begleitet von Ausschnitten aus der filmischen Projektdokumentation »Hätte Hätte Fahrradkette«, die auch dem Buch von Karin Mairitsch zugrunde liegt.

Buchpremiere Burgbergstrasse mit Wolfram Hahn

7 pm

Torbogengebäude im Fliegerhorst
Burgbergstraße 36
74564 Crailsheim

In the work Burgbergstrasse the photoprapher Wolfram Hahn deals with the history of the buildings and inhabitants of Burgbergstrasse in Crailsheim. The road passes through a former air base built for the Wehrmacht in 1936. Since then, the area has been used for various military and civilian purposes: the US Armed Forces built barracks, which served as their base until 1994, and the German Federal Armed Forces set up an equipment depot. Shortly after the war, a camp for displaced persons was set up and there is still refugee accommodation and affordable housing for people in need to this day.


Exhibition Autotomy David Edward Allen

Ausstellung David Edward Allen

Exhibition opening 28. June, 6 – 9 pm

Vexer Verlag Berlin Office
Gneisenaustrasse 54
10961 Berlin

We are opening an exhibition of paintings by David Edward Allen at the Vexer Verlag office in Berlin, which will be on view during the summer months. We look forward to seeing you there!

Were there to be a genre called Nature Painting, it could very well be the one to which David Edward Allen—whose latest series of paintings—would belong. Allen, however, is concerned less with depicting the landscape and more with the relationship between nature and humanity. In covering the landscape with darkness and turning it into something threatening and vital, he reverses the traditional painterly gesture of inhibiting and thus controlling nature. The nature depicted becomes restive. As do his images, which challenge the viewer by oscillating between abstraction and figuration and by way of the diffuse energy they emit. They seek to be both looked at up-close and viewed from afar.
