Today, performance art creates a place of discourse and symbolizes, at the same time, linguistic and physical immediacy. Theory building, different approaches to authorship, feminist reading methods, and the taking up of artistic and existential questions as performances come together in the positions of Lilo Nein and Katharina Cibulka/Peek a Corner.
In ‘Siegerperformace — eine Appropriation,’ Lilo Nein expands her performative research methods. She analyzes and examines the relationship between text, performance, and authorship by using three different speaker positions for performances.
In Katharina Cibulka's performance project ‘Peek a Corner,’ the stage in the context of art becomes a platform for people to have their say, people who want to share their experiences with others because it affects everyone. The project sees itself as an infinitely continual and freely interchangeable series of performances.
Lilo Nein was born in 1980, Vienna. Lilo Nein studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the University of Fine Arts Hamburg.
