FEBRUARY 21 – MARCH 06

In Figured and Flush, Sheena McGrandles explores radical temporality. With great attention to detail, Figured exposes the absurdity and artificiality of everyday gestures. Flush, following Gertrude Stein, breaks down linear and traditional forms of storytelling-perhaps even evoking a new lesbian temporality and aesthetic.

          With Amazonas Claire Vivianne Sobottke created a platform through which she provides grants to female artists in Berlin with the support of a foundation. In Amazonas #2, the choreographer Maria F. Scaroni brings together a temporary collective of mostly female artists to present their performative interpretation of Marge Piercy's classic anarcha-feminist Sci-Fi novel, Woman on the Edge of Time (1976) – a one-of-a-kind instance of the genre: The novel is a sketch of a potentially egalitarian, environmentally sound and gender-fluid utopian society. It wants to enliven our passion and courage for something possible but not yet present. The performance is followed by a DJ-Set by S Ruston, and the process is witnessed and reflected upon by journalist Astrid Kaminski.
