FIELDS OF VISION
International Art and Performance-Art Festival 18.-23. April 2017
Meeting, realizing, learning, performing
A collaboration of European and south east Asian artists. In April 2017 an art and performance art festival will be staged in Reutlingen/Tuebingen.
This international project will be curated and organized by Andreas Hoffmann. Andreas Hoffmann has for decades worked as an artist, performance artist and educator.
Performance art continues to gain ever-increasing importance in South East Asian art and has developed into an immediate form of political expression. This is found in the work of the Le Brothers from Vietnam, who continue to highlight the impact of the American war, especially in rural Vietnam, in a stylized highly politicized form of expression.
Their performances use the metaphoric permeability of the body and symbolic gestures, as well as incorporating conceptual elements and video art. We encounter similar forms of symbolic action in the works of Arjan Toi of Chiang Mai , Thailand and Myanmar artist Aye Ko.
The artists employ performance art to make statements, which at times can be politically sensitive.
The aim of this festival is to present and exchange different points of view using dance, theater, fine arts and performance art. The question to be pursued is the immediate need to question socio political and contemporary art in the context of this exchange.
Visiting artists will hold public workshops to introduce and share their art and their understanding of it. Each workshop will result in a public performance.
It is envisioned to present an exhibition of works by the visiting artists at the Gallery of the Kuenstlerbund in Tuebingen.
• Getting to know and understand the different political positions through performance and talks
• Workshops by participating artists.
• Each workshop will conclude in a public performance by workshop participants.
Central component of the festival should be the mutual learning. Therefore we want to bring together with the symposium professional artists laymen and multipliers.
