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.

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 of clashing political and social bubbles. The performer uses a blanket bought on the Austrian Craigslist version Willhaben to explore the internet’s echo chambers by means of choreography, words and music. 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? If a blanket is politically tinted, is it enough to wash it thoroughly and with a lot of fabric softener?

Claudia Lomoschitz is active as an artist and performer. In her work, she likes to explore the relationship between digitality, objectophilia, sociality and body perception. Her pieces have been presented at such venues as Kampnagel, Lichthof Theater (both Hamburg), Szene Salzburg and Kunstraum Niederösterreich.
