Opening EX MÊKH: The Act
Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 2-5 PM
EX-MÊKH came together as a collective that wants to think about the nature and process of making exhibitions. For this occasion the opening of the exhibition will be a theatrical performance about their practice. They will start a process in front of the public culminating in an exhibition.
A WEEKEND OF PERFORMANCES
16:00 Forbes Morlock and Marian Wijnvoord: Writing on Art
17:00 Kees Koomen and Yorgos Dimitriadis: Tssssss K-BAM
In the context of writing The Diaries and writing down what enters his senses Kees Koomen will now try to visualize the sounds that he hears. Working together with musician Yorgos Dimitriades who will improvise on percussion and electronics, he will try to translate this sound into images.
17:30 Ellen Rodenberg and Yorgos Dimitriadis: Feed
In this “In between time”- space of the Haus der Statistiek Ellen Rodenberg wants to do a performance in which she will show a working attitude. It originates from a barrel full of experiences in her studio, daily life and education which she feels to be socially and constructively useful in her functioning as a human being.
18:00 Maarten Schepers and Yorgos Dimitriadis: Stelle
Can we live in any place on Earth and call it Home? What is home? Is it the stuff that keeps us warm? Is it our past we recognize in our surroundings? Is it in the place we act to keep on living? Maarten Schepers will try to elaborate on this question in the performance he proposes.
18:30 Yorgos Dimitriadis DUO: Das Sahnehäubchen
14:00 – 17:00 EX MÊKH: The Act (Opening)
