DOWN FALL ART
(updating the downfall)

Performances by AIKO/Kurosaki, Doris Uhlich, Hooman Sharifi, Iris Julian, Lena Wicke, TANZ*BABY u.v.a und Diskussion mit ExpertInnen von ATTAC bis Microfinance
Moderation: Thomas J. Jelinek

What (and who) is actually going down / under, when we nowadays talk about the downfall? Are the limits of growth also the limits of our world? And how are we approaching the downfall, how do we speak our way towards it?
How does the stance, the dance change at the outermost edge of the speech? In a time of media hysteria about the crisis, of anonymous natural forces and financial catastrophes, Thomas Jelinek and his guests – prominent end time analysts, downfall-focused art-researchers, as well as common-or-garden losers from next door – invite you to participate in the downfall and take part in the endgame. Not without being aware of the certain pathos in the negotiation of the psychotic liturgy of the present, between congress-, passion- and demonstrationdances, driven by the call to selfempowerment, they open up a public, transdisciplinary space for discussion and artistic experimentation. A performative laboratory as discourse- space in the constantly recurring downfall and reconstruction game. A space for action, in order not to remain mute; an artistic suggestion against the perhaps greatest danger – namely that in the end everything remains unchanged.
