All summer long, Museum Tinguely will be celebrating performance art with BANG BANG translocal hi:stories of performance art. At the heart of this process-oriented exhibition is the Swiss performance scene, its players, and its networks, accompagnied by a vibrant and ambitious international programme. The incredibly rich history of the medium will be presented in a unique kaleidoscope of video installations, performances, photos, and texts. BANG BANG will chart the development of performance art and redraw the contours of this constantly changing discipline. As a festival of performance art, BANG BANG is subdivided into seven thematic chapters, which on seven weekends will combine live performances, discussions, and presentations involving audiences, artists, scholars, and the museum. Ranging from the dazzling to the almost imperceptible, BANG BANG promises to be an unforgettable live experience at Museum Tinguely and the surrounding Solitude Park. It will run from June 8 to August 21, 2022, offering visitors multiple opportunities to discover performance art in all its myriad dimensions.
Some of my previous works will be presented in BANG BANG, including Master Plan (children's edition), The Walking Project and The Artist. I am also co-curating with Maricruz Peñaloza a programme entitled Hybrid Forms - Hybrid Practices in Performance Art on July 14 - 17 as part of PANCH – Performance Art Network CH | Social Elegance.
The full programme of BANG BANG can now be found online.
