The Big Kiss reperformed

Happy that my piece The Big Kiss from 2008 will be reperformed by Thomas Geiger in the 4th Festival of Minimal Actions on the 25th of July at 18h.
Kunsthalle Wien, Reumannplatz, July 15–August 2, 2020

Concept: Thomas Geiger
Realisation: Kunsthalle Wien as part of KISS
Curated by: Laura Amann, Anne Faucheret, Aziza Harmel, WHW

As part of KISS, Thomas Geiger will realize a new edition of his Festival of Minimal Actions (previously staged in Brussels, 2014; Paris, 2015 and San José, 2018). In what could be considered a reawakening of performative works, Geiger creates situations that deal with the possibilities and impossibilities of physical interaction, affection, intimacy, and romance in public space during periods of pandemic…

…The festival – the main premise of which is a belief in the independence of performative works from their authors – brings together a concise selection of works by other artists that Geiger will reperform at Reumannplatz. Through the changed social, political, and temporal contexts between their original performance and this one, the works gain additional facets and shed some of their original aspects.
