Curating Valeska Gert: Ana Isabel Keilson in conversation with Wolfgang Muller and An Paenhuysen

“In 2010 I began my PhD in the History department at Columbia University, focusing on intellectual history and performance during Weimar Germany. While researching in Berlin, I met An Paenhuysen, a former visiting scholar at Columbia, who had just curated ‘Pause. Valeska Gert: Bewegte Fragmente’ at the Hamburger Banhof with Wolfgang Muller. In addition to co-curating the exhibition, Muller published Valeska Gert: Asthetik der Prasenzen (2010), which includes a reprint of Gert’s memoir, Mein Weg (1931). I was eager to talk with them about this important yet relatively obscure artist.”

What Sustains You Justine Lynch?

What Sustains You? is a new video project that asks dance artists about money and sustainability. The idea sprung from several events, discussions and proposals addressing in one way or another a necessity to rethink the presenting and creating models. Some of these projects were Charlotte Gibbons’ 4U, Daria Faïn/Prosodic Body’s think tank on the creation of a Commons (both an artistic performance and a civil/justice-building project) and Justine Lynch’s Somatic Alchemy classes. These artists, it seemed to us, challenged traditional exchange contracts of art giving and receiving and blurred definitions of art, production, collaboration, healing, authorship, and more.
