Anyone who wants to play needs rules. We know this far too well. But, after more than a year of endless forms, hygiene concepts, new standard operating procedures and revision of regulation after revision of regulation, we really would like to be able to dedicate ourselves once again to the possibilities that we cannot even see any more thanks to all of the bureaucracy. How do we want to structure ourselves? What principles of order result in freedom? Which produce violence or exclusion? Again and again, we return to the issues of power relationships and structural changes. This year, we will turn our attention to adjustments that can be in terms of administration, art and form.

Bookmarked by two weekends of workshops, the programming focus Discourse and Networking provides daily impulses and points of contact as a digital live stream and virtual café on Gather.Town. Our once, twice, three times RENDEVOUS and AU REVOIR at Berliner Ringtheater is a finale on three levels and missing out is not an option! In addition, we are really looking forward to two radio salons in the middle and at the end of the Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts Community.

Now for the ninth time, the Industry Get-Together of the Berlin Performing Arts Program is offering a central platform for exchanges and networking. This time around, we are particularly indebted to and thankful for the strong sense of solidarity shown by Acker Stadt Palast, Vierte Welt, Berliner Ringtheater as well as Schaubude Berlin. Together, we are putting on a hybrid networking conference for nine whole days in the widest variety of forms.

Workshop
In English
The workshop is held twice.

Fatigue and precarity are constantly present in the increasingly unsocial working conditions of a hyper-capitalized world of art. The workshop by the artists Kallia Kefala and  Nefeli Gioti seeks to create a space for reflection and collective learning upon the conditions that make us tired and upon the ways we can creatively resist them. Together we will navigate the complex field of fatigue through discussion, games and performative practices.

This workshop is based on materials and working methods of the performance MÜDE, which takes place from October 28th to November 5th at Vierte Welt.

Workshop

In her lecture followed by an in-depth workshop, dramaturge and performer Lisa Schettel addresses conditions that do not sound like rebellion, but hide potential: cluelessness and shame. She first shares her many years of research and artistic approaches to these topics, before inviting the audience to actively process them in self- and collective questioning – without a clue and with shame, of course.

Discourse

The questions and demands regarding structural solutions and radical systematic changes are getting louder and louder. At the same time, a desire for rules and regulations persists, as well as the utopian belief in bureaucracy. But how do we, in fact, achieve a fluid, diverse and socially just society with established, fixed rules? We will stream our discourse programming from Acker Stadt Palast every day from October 25 to October 28 as a primary programming focus, using it to thoroughly examine this apparent paradox both in terms of cultural policy as well as conceptually. It will begin every day with a cultural policy panel discussion that will be followed by a keynote speech at lunchtime and close at the end of the afternoon with a dialogue focusing on specific daily topics.

Radicalism

Initially, radicalism and rules seem like opposing forces. Whoever follows the rules can’t be radical and vice versa. Is this really true? To begin our exploration, we have asked ourselves what areas we would like to be radical in and whether rethinking things absolutely has to mean making a break with the existing conditions.

11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Panel discussion with, amongst others, Antigone Akgün (performer / writer / dramaturg), Sebastian Brünger (Kulturstiftung des Bundes, the German Federal Cultural Foundation) and Gerhild Steinbuch (author), moderated by Mirjam Schaub (philosopher, journalist)

Normality

So where is it, this much-touted and so-called “new normal”? At the moment it seems to have shifted terribly out of place and fallen into the wrong hands. Rules shape the ways in which we live together, work together and are connected to us each other. This is reason enough to dedicate ourselves to the supposed norm during our investigation and examine it.

Functionality

Rules have the function of avoiding chaos or at least keeping things under control. But does art want to be control and to control? Or is the image of chaotic art in times shaken by catastrophes one that must be urgently questioned? The time has come to ask the crucial question - what is all of this for?

Who hasn't been in this situation before? We are still searching urgently for a dramaturg or stage designer for the next project, we are keen to take part in a performance project and have the time or we want to join up with a collective project. Unfortunately, neither posts nor mass mails have been able to bring anyone to the table. Over the course of the Salon – Lost and Found, projects can be presented, partners can be looked for and projects can be found. When registering for the event, please also briefly tell us: what kind of project or profession and/or position are you looking for? We look forward to a friendly event with you!

The Berlin Ringtheater, including its forest garden, are putting together a three-part celebration this year so that as many people as possible can take part in accordance with the hygiene conditions. At 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm and at 7:00 pm, respectively, we are putting on an event that combines the opening, half-way point celebration, gathering and closing party with sparkling wine as a duration RENDEZVOUS and AU REVOIR. What’s more, we get to look forward to words of welcome and keynote speeches from the highest levels of the cultural administration. What we are looking forward to even more, however, is seeing all of you and having the option, at a sufficient and safe physical distance, of cutting down the emotional distance between us and asking all of you how you are doing.

Including the time for entering and exiting the premises, a little show and the get-together (possible indoors as well as outdoors!), we’ll have you out the door again after exactly two hours. Before or after, you can hear about what you’ve missed or what you can especially look forward to on the Radio Salon.

Green Open Food Evolution — Hybridization Processes in Human and Non-Human Ingestion, or, How Bacteria Have Sex
With Maya Minder

Probiotics to improve the immune system, vegans live healthier and longer, algae are being hyped as a new superfood. According to a scientific article, the Japanese microbiome has adapted itself over centuries to its environment in order to be able to better digest algae. The evolutionary epigenetics of the human microbiome express themselves in Japanese food culture. The improvement of our digestive system is underlined just as much by the newest trend toward raw fermented kombucha. The human being and their microbial complexity with their environment scream for changes in habits. A possible life after the ruin of capitalism? Can veganism actually lead to us becoming plant-based? As a food artist, Maya Minder uses a hands-on workshop in order to try and answer the questions of how norms, contingents and disciplining of foodstuff and beyond can be undone by using unlearning processes. A workshop on the topic of hybridization processes between cuisine, biohacking and evolution theory.

Based in Zurich, the artist Maya Minder uses cooking as a processual negotiation of the symbiotic coexistence of human and non-human living creatures. In doing so, she creates interrelations between everyday objects and animistic natural materials. She has created work for Ars Electronica, the Piksel Festival in Bergen as well as for Kunsthalle Zürich and is part of BadLab Zürich and the International Hackteria Society.

Working through Conflict and the Possibility of Inter-community Solidarity?
With Kathy-Ann Tan

In this experimental and participatory workshop, we will discuss and brainstorm some strategies and techniques of how to deal with, and work through, conflict within queer, BIPoC* and otherwise marginalised communities in the arts scene(s) in Berlin. While "diversity", "integration" and "accessibility" have become buzzwords in Berlin's arts and cultural scene in the last decade, many attempts to "decolonise" institutions or practice anti-racist methodologies continue to be undermined by acts of tokenism, extractivism and instrumentalisation. These are perpetrated by both white- and BIPoC-led institutions, and is a reflection of a larger "divide-and-rule" mechanism at work in white-dominant, western societies. How can we as artists and cultural practitioners work through our own internal divisions, tensions and conflicts while still understanding that the larger goal must be to support the work of underrepresented and minority artists who are faced with the challenges of navigating and surviving institutional whiteness? How can we be aware of, and challenge, abelist attitudes? Are trans-community forms of solidarity possible? How can we practice forms of care, calling in (as opposed to calling out), and conversation that continue to create and hold space for a multiplicity of dissenting voices while working toward a larger goal of dismantling cis-white-heteropatriarchy?

Kathy-Ann Tan is a Berlin-based curator, writer and independent scholar of the visual arts and performance, postcolonial and decolonial theory, critical diversity studies and gender/queer studies. She is interested in alternative models of art dissemination, exhibition-making and institution-building that are attuned to issues of social- and transformative justice. Her ongoing project www.decolonialartarchives.com aims to collaboratively build an online and offline forum for artists and curators to develop ways of interrogating colonial narratives and countering neo-colonial forms of domination and control.
