How to inhabit the cæsura 

Development of pandemic-conform live art workshop methodologies

STRATA

2021, Performance-based film

Exploring memory layers and Deep Time in human history and the geological. In caves of human prehistory at the caves of the Swabian Alb, the project brings together artists and researchers from the humanities, social and geologic sciences to investigate the human body as a place that exists in continuity with the geological. Body artists illuminate concepts of time, past and modern human cultures through performances for camera in caves. These poetic body images are nourished by documentary elements in the form of conversations with specialists from the fields of archaeology, palaeontology, geology, speleology, art history, philosophy, and time psychology.

1 9 Monologue

2020, Letters from isolation

 

While many in Europe consider it to be long since eradicated, it still presents the deadliest pandemic worldwide. In the Romantic period, it was epitome of muse and poetry and a popular motif in painting, literature and music. The talk is of tuberculosis. In July 2019, atypically, the young German artist Verena Stenke was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. Her own experience of being as a body home to pathogens, flows into this autobiographical performance text, while building a bridge between precise self-observation and a global, historical and literary outside.
