New Art on Air – The brut Wien Podcast

We love performance dance and theater and we love conversation. The podcast “New Art on Air” introduces artists from the independent performance, dance and theater scene and asks questions about artistic creation and the art of life, about what inspires, motivates and moves. We are Kira Kirsch and the team from brut Wien, the theater for New Art on Stage.

Gesellschaftsspiele. The Art of Assembly IX – REASSEMBLING INSTITUTIONS (Ahmed Al-Nawas, Nora Sternfeld, Sarah Waterfeld / Staub zu Glitzer & Florian Malzacher)

Can institutions be driving forces of change? Or are they doomed to be bastions of the status quo, capable of slow reforms at best? Arguments about institutions, instituting and institutionalizing are at the core of many progressive movements. But what would it actually mean to imagine institutions in a radical democratic way? How can we understand museums, theatres, galleries, festivals, biennales as assemblies – not only symbolically but by consequently re-negotiating their organizational structures?

Gesellschaftsspiele. The Art of Assembly – ARCHITECTURES OF HOSPITALITY

Hospitality – with all its seeming generosity – is a complex concept: Who is invited into our societies, our assemblies? What are the relationships between guests and hosts? Is unconditional hospitality possible? The architecture of public space, the infrastructures of coming together, the borders and thresholds around them inform how we come together, what is prevented from happening, what is possible.
