Fle­shy Interface

Ope­ning Festival

The cross-insti­tu­tio­nal ope­ning fes­ti­val “Fle­shy Inter­face” com­bi­nes per­for­mance, work­shops and dis­cour­se on the the­mes of phy­si­ca­li­ty and touch. The body as a medi­um and as an instru­ment in the per­forming arts, the digi­tal body, bodi­less­ness, and the lon­ging to touch and be touched move to the cen­ter of atten­ti­on in our par­ti­cu­lar time of phy­si­cal distance: “Skin-tight poli­tics, a poli­tic that takes as its ori­en­ta­ti­on not the body as such, but the fle­shy inter­face bet­ween bodies and worlds.” (Sara Ahmed)

On Satur­day 26 sep­tem­ber 2020, the most beau­ti­ful litera­ry excerp­ts of the wri­ting work­shop hung and lay in shop win­dows, on walls and in unusu­al pla­ces. Strol­lers bet­ween Neu­markt, Lite­ra­tur­haus, Caba­ret Vol­taire and Helfe­rei could be sur­pri­sed and touched by the poe­try of fragility.
