WILD TIMES, PLANETARY MOTIONS
EXHIBITION BY NATASHA GINWALA, JEROEN VERSTEELE, FESTIVAL DIRECTORS OF BERLINER FESTSTPIELE AND THILO FISCHER
GROPIUS BAU, BERLIN
10.-14.03.2021 (CANCELED DUE TO COVID)
International visual artists, musicians and performers will present installations, concerts and performances. The programme unites jazz and contemporary music, theatre works about plant intelligence, suites by J.S.Bach in the dark, humanoid robots in dialogue, a performative landscape scenography, historical films, conversations and archive material on the Festspiele’s history.
These works deal with moments of metamorphosis, of intimacy and vulnerability. How can our dealings with an uncertain present be turned into an act of healing and creativity? “Wild Times, Planetary Motions” wants to oppose our fissured status quo with a spark of ferocity and rebellion, creating a circuitry of renewal. The idea was to populate the entire basement, the atrium and the balconies of the Gropius Bau with time-based art in parallel. Thilo Fischer would have curated six rooms, each with a new video installation.
