 inter/act 1: Szuper Gallery
31. March – 9.
April / 28. April – 24. June 2012

What is the impact of the permanent state of crisis? What do mountain gorillas have in common with 21st century city dwellers? What are the connections between the utterings of a recovering stroke patient and a group of children lounging in a gallery? These are some of the elements—physical and conceptual— that make up Szuper Gallery’s new project. Economic crisis, global warming, nuclear winter, we are permanently reminded that we are imminently facing a catastrophe. Considering these changing states and the surprising emergence of the normal as crisis, Szuper Gallery presents a multi-layered project in order to explore the notion of performance as social practice. The project includes an installation in the Projektraum enter and a new live performance produced in collaboration with Canadian actor Michele Sereda, featuring Prof. Klaus Zuberbühler, primotologist, University of St Andrews, and Colonal General Hans-Ulrich Haldimann, Kommandant Waffenplatz Thun as well as a group of 30 school children.
