The focus is on the dance performance blank memory of absence the Düsseldorf choreographer Daniela Georgieva (*1979) The four international dancers Hugo Le Brigand, Mihyun Ko, David Kummer and Josephine Luke Simonsen explore the art space in an on-site choreography by using walking as a means of aesthetic expression and thereby evoking ephemeral images and impressions, that linger as memories.

Approaching each other, searching, by crossing paths, showing traces and courses, the dancers will feel their own field of action and thus relate the body and the self to the immediate environment and to the others. Proximity and distance can be felt and experienced in this way, everyday actions and experiences are renegotiated, life paths are taken and playing with absence and emptiness is shaped in our consciousness.

During the rehearsal week from October 17-21.10, 2022, sporadic insights into the rehearsal process will be possible. The audience is invited to observe short sequences in the making, before "step by step" with the performance BLANK MEMORY OF ABSENCE on October 21.10. is opened. Following the opening weekend performances, the footage Nathan Ishar will make during rehearsals will be shown in the art space.

The pictures of the Dortmund artist Anett Frontzek (*1965) take up the theme conceptually in that the artist removes the surrounding space from hiking maps with the help of a scalpel and leaves only selected paths, resulting in a fine network of accessible lines. Hiking trails remain visible where they otherwise only serve as paths to reach scenic destinations, and thus mark lines of movement full of curves, bends or curves, through which being on the move happens, which enables discoveries and broadens the horizon.

Walking step by step, as becomes clear both in the performance and in the images, always means access to the world. In order to offer this access to the public in a participatory manner, there is an invitation to walk during the performance and exhibition project, an appeal to rediscover everyday space, as can be found in numerous artistic practices since the 1960s, be it dance, performance, Land Art or Walking Art. Various instructions that are available in the art space lead to a step-by-step exploration of the surroundings, which allows the search for personal traces and paths amid the speed of accelerated mobility of our efficiency-conscious reality of life.
