HOW TO PERFORM A CLOSED CITY?

Presently the public space of this city is closed as of many others seen from a global point of view –due to restrictions in the course oft he Covid 19 pandemia.

What happens to freedom of speech under the sharpened conditions of a state of emergency? Austria as many other states has tried to counter the crisis with a reflex aiming at a national vocabualry – and is still doing so. What chances are to be found in an extension of the national to transnational approaches- choosing terms based on solidarity with all persons concerned including the ones beyond the boundaries of ones country. Isn´t it clear that the virus and it´s spreading don´t bother with boundaries either and proceed along global routes of commerce and tourism. In the same way economic and ecologic themes and topics are situated beyond national braces. Which possibilities for transformation are being offered by this crisis? What kind of approaches to performatively explore the present conditions of public and private life do we find? And which exciting translations from analogue to digital and vice versa are we coming up with?

The seminar is dedicated to happen in the context oft he urban festival „SOHO in Ottakring“ and related tot he festival topic of „ What to think ? on freedom of speech and the struggle about it“. The outcome oft he seminar, Solo and collective performances will be curated and presented in the frame of the festival.
