Performance/Live Art


Nikolaus Gansterer , Böhler, Arno


  • 18 July 2023– Secession, Wien, Österreich




You are cordially invited to an evening together in the garden of the Vienna Secession with contributions by Hugo Canoilas as well as Nikolaus Gansterer & Arno Böhler, curated by Christian Lübbert. The event will be starting with the live translecture performance "Tasting-Sensing-Notating-Reflecting-TIME-SPACES" by Nikolaus Gansterer and Arno Boehler. By means of extended drawing, the artist Nikolaus Gansterer will explore the performative simultaneous translation of processes of thought and speech. The philosopher Arno Böhler will read Plato's Timaeus as a voice from the future, presenting us with a cosmogenesis that is still in the making: how many dawns have yet to shine? This question will be developed by Böhler on site in resonance with Gansterer's artistic practice, and will unfold between the two. Signs, gestures and objects become equal actors in a lively table choreography that is filmed live and transmitted directly to the exterior wall of the Secession building. In concordance with the evenings final act the screening of the film Treffen in Guincho Hugo Canoilas will begin with a culinary delight. Admission free!
