The archive as “transformation machine” thinking the new through looking back.
In their project "performing archive", which runs over several years, WILHELM GROENER engage in the topic of the archivistic, its methods, rhythms, connotations, extensions and (re-)orderings. What can a performative archive be? What can be the archiving of the performative?
Can bodies and their means be considered (performance-)archives? And can the body of work created so far serve as a kind of 'transformation machine' that constantly allows for new facets of the performative? After research phases in STUK/Leuven and Nomad Dance Academy/Ljubljana a first partial presentation as an installative-performative within OPEN SPACES will takes place.
Funded by basis funding through the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. With kind support by STUK/Leuven and Nomad Dance Academy/Ljubljana as part of the network Life Long Burning - Towards a sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe, funded by EU Creative Europe Programme.
