CHRONIK DER VORBEILAUFENDEN EREIGNISSE

“chronicle of events passing by” is the second book out of three dealing with plays by “zweite liga für kunst und kultur”

At “chronicle of events passing by” in the summer of 2013 I journaled all of the performances.
The setting was on the one hand on a street, the Annenstrasse in Graz, on the other hand in a store, where the audience was sitting, and a second layer of the play was happening. Aspects of “passing by”, literally and, lets say biolgically, was the essence of the play.

The book, 40 pages, is a D.I.Y. production, printed at Risograd (Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz).
Amongst other books, also this one was finished at studio Leitnergasse, Graz. Helmut Kaplan, Michael Jordan, me and the spirit of Tonto were in the production line.

der druckauftrag

“the print job – fragmented protocol of the play” is the first book out of three dealing with plays by “zweite liga für kunst und kultur”

In autumn of the year 2013 “the print job” was performed at the Volkshaus, Graz. It was about the difficulties of an office stuff writing an e-mail together with the concern: “It is over” an with the content of closing down the office. Topics like refusal and self empowerment were treated.
I journalized three of the performances.

The book, 20 pages, is a D.I.Y. production, printed at Risograd (Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus), finished at studio Leitnergasse, Graz.
Big thanks to Helmut Kaplan and Tonto for helping finishing the book!!!

PROTOKOLLE PRODUZIEREN – PRODUCING PROTOCOLS
drawing at following pieces of theatre by zweite liga of kunst und kultur

2012 I was invited to draw at at a three days staging/happening “Tagung der Kommune” (something like “Conference of the Commune”) in the function of one of the recorders. The happening was about writing a play in the moment of acting, which means discussing the ideals of a community, political action and about “the true (right) life in the wrong film”  – and recording this. Every participant, every visitor and passer-by was instantly part of the play. Happened at Forum Stadtpark, Graz.

At the play “chronik der vorbeilaufenden ereignisse” (“chronicle of events passing by”) in the summer of 2013 I protocolled all of performances. The setting was on the one hand on a street, the Annenstrasse in Graz, on the other hand in a store, where the audience was sitting, and a second layer of the play was happening. Aspects of “passing by”, literally and in the sense of extinction, was the essence of the play.

In autumn of the same year the play “der druckauftrag” (“the print job”) was performed at the Volkshaus, Graz. It was about the difficulties of an office stuff writing an e-mail together with the concern: “It is over” an with the content of closing down the office. Topics like refusal and self empowerment were treated.

REDUCE – ESCAPE – FORGET

contribution to the exhibition “Ohne Start kein Ziel” (without start no goal) at “kunsthaus muerz”, Mürzzuschlag, 2016, curated by Sabina Hörtner. The exhibition deals with different aspects of travelling.

Reduce – Escape – Forget is an 8 page comic, on sheets of 70 x 100 cm, about crossing the border from Mexico to Guatemala in 1991. Civil war was going on in Guatemala, but the protagonists had other problems…

Within the exhibition I did the workshop “The box and a secret” with gifted young people from the region.
