Nicole Biermaier and Julia Sheppard host:
PARLIAMENT IMPROV. N° 1 "THE BABEL SESSIONS"
While discussing the complex writings of Bruno Latour, a group of international artists will spend 7 days in a confined space in Zürich, building something a kin to the tower of Babel. This pperformative experiment will be carried out in the hopes of creating a common language through artistic practice.
Using clay - the second common building block/ the common thread, and additional support materials brought in by each participant, they will jam together, discuss, argue most likely, but will try to find within this "art parliament" a common ground in the form of a final tactile construction or piece of art and aesthetic system of some unpredictable kind.
Inspired by the myth of the Tower of Babel, they will be delving into the demands of discourse, dialog and exchange, bravely toiling to overcome the barriers between cultures, languages and artistic disciplines. Throughout the week, visitors and guests will be invited into this laboratory to join in the debate and sometimes contribute to the work in progress.
This Babel session takes place in Neugasse 41 in Zürich
