Coffee from Helvécia

29 August 2017 - 28 January 2018
Johann Jacobs Museum, Seefeldquai 17, 8034 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

African Brazil, St. Galler embroidery and a modernist utopia One of the largest coffee plants of the 19th century, located in the Brazilian north-east, was firmly established in Swiss hands. However, what exactly took place there is largely unknown. Today's state of Helvécia hardly reveals the voluntary and involuntary forms of work and life that have developed between European immigrants and African slaves and their free offspring. A century later, another coffee plantation will be the scene of a social…

Yael Wicki – Dead Reckoning

14 September - 29 September
Mikro, Sihlquai 125, Zürich, 8005 Switzerland + Google Map

Dead-Reckoning As A Methodology Of Emancipation Through Navigation In Times Of Struggle Inspired by Johanna Hedva’s ‘Sick Woman Theory’ I take a big breath, slowly and steady. I breath in and out, deep into every fiber of my body. I take another breath, only focusing on the air that travels through me, from my head to my toes. Than slowly I lift my foot and place it carefully in front of me, thoughtfully searching for my balance, before letting my…

Komplizen

22 September - 14 October
Tart, Gotthardstrasse 54, Zürich, 8002 Switzerland + Google Map

22 September to 14 October The accomplice. A partner through thick and thin. A confidant, a victim, an accomplice. The complicitness makes her shadowy past from the past visibly. Over the past decades, more and more legitimate complications have been observed - networking is building visible and invisible bridges between places, people and potentials. Is this networking a never-ending time-spirit, an indispensable attitude on the way to successful projects? Or is it simply the lived realization that cooperation creates the…

Performance 4 Evenings: «No Title No Work», premiere

3 October
Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Performance by Christian Falsnaes (DK), with Søren Berner (DK) Curated by Søren Berner (DK) What happens when people have to give up control and simply give in to instructions and orders? Christian Falsnaes addresses a highly current topic as he wants to make visible the mechanisms of following authoritarian orders that organize society but that we normally don’t recognize. His works are based upon the interaction between audience and artist and deal with rituals, social dynamics and group behaviour in…

Performance 4 Evenings: untitled, premiere

31 October
Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Performance by Kristoffer Akselbo (DK), with Søren Berner (DK) Curated by Søren Berner (DK) «In my artistic work, I have a special interest in hyperrealism and everyday objects, performative mechanisms and interaction with the viewer. The work is expressed in aesthetic meetings and time-based experiences. The content of my production is about a negotiation and exchange between views and work and how it reacts in the given context. My works ask questions about who we are, where we are and…

Theatre of Sound: «I am not a Joke», 2017

7 November
Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Performance by Olivia Hyunsin Kim (KR/DE), Magda Drozd (PL) and Co. aka The Kill Joys Curated by Philipp Cron (CH) The Kill Joys (Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Magda Drozd and Co.) examine feminist concerns, which they express through concert performances. In a DIY style and a dilettantish attitude, they scream about what is infuriating them. Through self-written lyrics they sing about current feminist and political topics and aptly give themselves a voice which is understood by others. For more about the…

Word Up!: «Weird Séance», premiere

14 November
Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Dyspraxic participatory performance by Daniel Oliver (UK) The performance project «Weird Séance» by Daniel Oliver is a series of raucous, deconstructionist, and roughly layered participatory performances about participatory performance. Each performance is haphazardly crowbarred into its site and context − rejigged, added to, undone and perverted. We are in the future looking back on the traumatic incident that occurred right here, in this space, during Daniel’s show. Returning to the site to partially reconstruct the tragic performance, to discuss blame,…

Thus I Spoke: «Dying On Stage», 2015

21 November
Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Performance by Christodoulos Panayiotou (CY), performed by dancer Jean Capeille (FR), Duration: 2 h 15 min Curated by Michelangelo Miccolis (IT) Christodoulos Panayiotou’s lecture-performance Dying On Stage is a meditation on the impossible theatrical representation of death. Taking as its starting point Rudolf Nureyev’s 1991 staging of the classical ballet «La Bayadère», which was choreographed whilst Nureyev’s health was critically deteriorating, Dying On Stage explores various literal, metaphorical, and symbolic deaths by examining the vicious relationship between the spectator, the…

The stratifications of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

30 November 2017 - 30 November 2018
Johann Jacobs Museum, Seefeldquai 17, 8034 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Using archaeological, ethnographic and cartographic methods, Tiffany Chung examines changes caused by war, human destruction, or natural catastrophes. Their deceptively beautiful maps and accumulations of finds unleash the experiences that extend under destroyed topographies like Saigon or Aleppo. (What can not be reconstructed in reality can bring art to light).
