Art is a process, not a product
My short #TakeCareResidencies interim report on the success of artistic research.
Now, halfway through the residency period, it becomes clear that this is precisely what seems to be the special challenge: to free oneself from the idea of having to “deliver” something, but to be allowed to fail, to allow oneself to follow the traces that become visible in the process without immediately thinking, in an act of self-censorship, about whether this will lead anywhere and whether one will ever reach a goal and result in this way.
Who is the choir today? Who gets to speak? Who is the narrator? Who is writing history? What changes of perspective are necessary? And how does the ancient crisis fan out anew for us against the current and global crisis?
A curious and creative character awakens. Developed inside a computer, it longs to learn…
How do we want our art form and our continent to be reshaped in the future?
Here you can get the summary of the meeting!
RELOAD. THE FURIES

GIVE US TIME – TAKE US TIME
In other words, to step out of the mill: to ask, doubt, reject, start anew, ideas, perspectives, experiments, self-understanding – to give space and time to solidary discussions.

MLure.art functions as a hub for the testing and research of machine learning (“artificial intelligence”) in music and theatre. Participants of the research projects: Mathis Nitschke (initiator), Elsa Büsing, Klasien van de Zandschulp, Luciano Pinna, Patrick van der Smagt, Djalel Benbouzid and Boton Cseke.
The essay has now been published in “ACT – Zeitschrift für Musik und Performance” (www.act.uni-bayreuth.de). In it I deal with the dialogicity of the production “ACCATTONE” (J. Simons, Ruhrtriennale 2015). The essay is available for download on demand.
Thanks to the team of “Beethoven with us” and especially to the many artists and hosts for a wunderful, intimate, individual and divers start to the Beethoven year 2020!
Guest post for Mathis Nitschke on my experiences with the production “Isolde”.
