On January 14, the topic of our monthly meeting was the body.
As a guest we were happy to have André Armin Hegner, rent activist at Deutsche Wohnen and Co Enteignen from the Kiezteam Tempelhof-Schöneberg (Berlin). Among other things, we talked with him about his practice of going from door to door and talking to strangers in person as a 1-to-1 performance.
We also had Cali Kobel as a guest, a performer with whom we did several exercises in body-work. (light and heavy body / swarm exercise / exercise to take personal space).
ASJA and Jonathan presented several approaches to working with your body in art and protest, using among others examples from the YES MEN, 1960s sit-ins and “El vialodor eres tu”. Different artistic approaches such as acting, working with scores and gestures were discussed and reflected.
