FEAT. FLORIAN MALZACHER (FESTIVAL MANAGER), ANGELA RICHTER (DIRECTOR, ACTIVIST), SOPHIA NEW AND DANIEL BELASCO ROGERS (PLAN B, ARTISTS), MODERATION: MARTIN ZEYN (BR) / in German with simultaneous translation into English
If art becomes political once more and leaves the forum of the theatre, then will it enter the sights of intelligence service interests? We ask director Angela Richter, who has held conversations with whistle-blowers around the world. Is it conceivable that we are leaving the comfort zone of observing art by working with socially sharper tools? We ask festival director Florian Malzacher who has published several books on the performing arts at the interface to activism. And how does one turn one’s own geographic digital traces into art, as the British performance group plan b does in Berlin?
