In her project WE WILL NOT LET YOU GO, artist Fanni Futterknecht stages tableau-like situations and performative visual moments together with a group of performers in the Nordbahn-Halle. These sequences and pictures are based primarily on media images of protests, demonstrations and manifestations. By using graphic text fragments and minimalist performative actions, Futterknecht and her performers abstract these ideological moments and transfer them into choreographed poetic scenes, formed by moving, standing or lying bodies in the space.

WE WILL NOT LET YOU GO explores the subject constructions within our European society and depicts both moments of perceived commonality and the isolation of the individual. The focal questions of the project are the visualisation of intralingual and group hierarchical power structures, dynamics and modes of expression as well as symbolic appropriation of space and social control. Holding up plates and signs, the performers repeatedly form new groups of “soundless speakers”, inviting the observers to listen to their own voices and thereby become readers.

Fanni Futterknecht studied fine arts and video at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and scenic arts in the Essai programme of the CNDC at Angers in France. In her work, she uses various media, including video, performance and installations.
