A performance script for the exhibitions Fomuška, by Micol Assaël, and Frühling, by Pawel Althamer and children living in Kassel, at Kunsthalle Fridericianum
Performtive interventions, as a format, are located at the intersection of gallery education – of talking about art – and performance – of staging and artistic expression. The ambition of the choreographed exhibition tour is to open new perspectives on contemporary art, its social conditions, its histories of production and its meanings. The performance script was produced with students at the School of Art and Design Kassel in a gallery education project in spring 2009. The performative activities were connected to a tour and presented to around 40 visitors during the Symposium KUNST [auf] FÜHREN (Performing/guiding art. Performativity as a mode and an art form in gallery education) on June 20, 2009.
