"De grote Verteller."
With Jan Charzinski.
What do a toothpaste tube, Bob Ross and we have in common? The phenomenal, the banal? The narrative, the smell of ideas or the taste of interpretation and their Perversions.
Can a lecture be non-perfomative and how is it linked to it's reenactment? This and that, authorship - as participators in a (volatile) theatre in ones head, on paper, in space, in action.
Just diggin' - to shovel tunnels or caves and to build bridges between the hard reality of single-family saddle roofs and dreamy fantastic ivorytowers. Fools work and quackery of the creative-shaped story, told by author and participators at the same time. Or is really serious?
A lecture about questions of the narratives of daily displays and (re)productions, about designing/shaping of narration and the narration of Designing/Shaping. Which you could have signed.

The program for Digital Media at the University of the Arts Bremen launched a regular series of salon-style gatherings titled “Spectacle: Reenactments in the Arts, Design, Science and Technology.” The events have an open format and provide a forum for experiments, presentations and performances from a range of different fields, but with a common focus on old and new media, as well as technologies. The salon thereby enables a practice of reenactment as a way to make things past and hidden visible, present and also questionable.
Contemporary new technologies and media seem to cover knowledge with complex layers of materials, code/sign systems and history/organization. Reenacting can translate obscured knowledge, ideas and theories into bodies and actions. At the heart of this conceptual approach is a desire to turn past events into present experiences—although the very nature of the past prohibits such an endeavor.
The salon pursues the primary goal of opening closed systems and constructions (black boxes). Global power structures, as well as complex processes in development and production—leading to hermetic constructs—have made it even harder to understand science, economy and contemporary media, as well as new technologies. Recipients therefore tend to mostly grasp only their superficial level. The spectacle is a way to condense actions and processes. Reenactment, on the other hand, builds on repetition and history. But the spectacle is a moment in the here and now where everything flows together and culminates.
