atelier:performance #extra - Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith

01.09.2017 // 4pm - 9pm

Durchgängige Performative Intervention - im Rahmen des 20. ZINNOBER. Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith graduated in London from the Royal College of Art in 2000 (MA) and from Goldsmiths' College in 1994 (BA). After her completion of a two year Picker Fellowship Award at Kingston University in 2003, she returned to Germany organizing international Performance Art Workshops and City site-specific 12-hour ‘Marathon’ Performance Art Workshops called 'Werktag'.

She has been organizing public events with Live Performances and exhibitions, founder of kunstwirkstoff, Jerxheim-Bahnhof in the countryside of Germany, developing the international performance event transitstation in London 2003, Berlin 2005, Edinburgh 2006 supported by IFA and Copenhagen in 2010, supported by Goethe Institute, supported by IFA in Copenhagen a collaboration with the Royal Danish Academy of Art.

For the atelier:performance #extra Glausnitzer-Smith will develope a new durational performance with the title 'will have had the scraped time'.

"Even when ‘trust’ is an idea concept beyond its existence, the process begins when I close my eyes. Trusting takes place when realities shift and the object relation endures by the dictated efforts of its own substances."

Special guest during this long durational performance will be Alexander Rues aka ERU. He will intervene in the situation. Eru’s sound experimentation is based on cosmic and molecular tunings of one singular tone.


At Sudio : Ilka Theurich it will be the first time to experiment with the idea of collaboration by way of re-directing the unity of a mutual presence of sound and Performance Action. This enables a much stronger sense of presence and entity, which so far has been common ground. The time aspect in the durational work of Glausnitzer-Smith enables unforeseeable entrances and exits for Eru’s presence of sound occurrences.

In several previous situations the Live Action of Eru and Seven of Eglise together intentionally bypass the visual competition of interactive, composed or pre-supposed concepts of ideas. The collaborative work stays explorative each time and consciously resides in the moment of unknown experience. The general concept and development over past years are devoid of genre definition and performance art categories.
