{Craigslist-y} {private politics} {reservations}

Willhaben is basically an Austrian equivalent of Craigslist. Imagine you meet someone you want to buy a blanket from that you found on Willhaben, and then imagine this highly intimate object becoming fraught with political significance. In her performance Soft Skills, Claudia Lomoschitz takes the purchase of a used blanket as a basis for a quite physical analysis somewhere between intimacy and ideology. From exchanging products to exchanging views. From soft bedding to soft skills.

Claudia Lomoschitz – Soft Skills

How does the body react when it starts to feel reservations? What is it with the so-called soft skills? And who is going to be your next online seller? Claudia Lomoschitz analyses the tension that arises when an impersonal digital encounter turns into a highly personal physical experience and analyses the ways of dealing with right-wing radicalism in a private environment. What forms of radicality surface in the dialogue with the object? What kinds of extremes get to suddenly touch? And where does intimacy disappear under the blanket of ideology? Soft Skills adresses political feelings like shame, anger, worry, fear, and softness.

Claudia Lomoschitz is active as a choreographer, performer and artist. In her work, she likes to explore the relationship between digitality, objectophilia, sociality and body perception. 2018 she graduated in Hamburg with a master’s degree in Performance Studies and was awardes with the danceWeb scholarship at ImPulsTanz Vienna. Her pieces have been presented at such venues as Kampnagel, Lichthof Theater (both Hamburg), Szene Salzburg and Kunstraum Niederösterreich.
