Stefanie Trojan – CONTACT

Picture lecture and artist talk

with subsequent interaction

Saturday, March 25.03.2023, 19 at XNUMX p.m

In a short lecture with pictures, the performance artist Stefanie Trojan gives insights into her more than 20 years of work. In the center of the work that is in the current double exhibition "Nobody is nobody" can be seen are interpersonal encounters and shared experiences. By unexpectedly intervening in everyday situations, the artist questions common patterns of behavior and breaks with the usual habits and expectations of the viewer.

After the slide show, the audience is invited to discuss various questions with Stefanie Trojan and the curator Friederike Fast: How do people in different cultures and contexts react to the works? As an artist, how do you prepare for these actions? And how do you present performance art in an exhibition where the artist herself is absent?

Entry is free!

Donations to support the work of the association are very welcome.
