Symposia Dialogue:
ART AND CONTINUITY

THE BODY AT THE INTERSECTION OF DIFFERENT FIELDS

Različne vidike in poglede na pojem kontinuitete skozi telo, izkušnjo, prakso in teorijo bodo predstavili povabljeni strokovnjaki in umetniki iz Ljubljane, Maribora, Zagreba in Budimpešte tako s predavanji kot z različnimi oblikami umetniških dogodkov (pogovori, plesne instalacije in uglaševalni prostori).

Artists are increasingly confronted with the inability to work continuously in a fragmented and (over)productive world, where numbers are at the forefront: the number of successful performances, the number of spectators, the number of awards, and so on. The second symposium presents reflections and initiatives that address various action strategies, first, in the body (soma) and then through working, networking and sociopolitical thinking.

Invited experts and artists from Ljubljana, Maribor, Zagreb and Budapest will present different aspects and views on the concept of continuity through the body, experience, practice in the form of lectures and diverse art events (talks, dance installations and tuning spaces).

What do the uniqueness and authenticity of the creative process mean in light of the modern world’s drive for constant mass reproduction? How do the working conditions impose themselves on an artist, and what are the creative responses to that? What about the aspects of ongoing processual work and the different cultural systems that condition it? How does dance practice inscribe itself into everyday life? What can we say about the embodied experience and integrating the process modality into dance or architectural design thinking and sensibility? About the art of watching and performances that surpass the conventional rules of performing arts?

Snježana Premuš is a dance artist and somatic researcher who has been working in Slovenia and internationally for 25 years. In a research process called Physical Manifestations, for which she received the Ksenija Hribar Award in 2017, she focused on the BODY. Since 2012, she has been creating the conditions and various formats for events where many artists, dancers, experts, scientists and audiences meet.

In 2020, she gathered different laboratory meeting formats into the Symposium Dialogue so that, together with the audience in a given time and space, (artistic and other) participants might think, observe, tune in and test the various aspects of physicality in the current time and given conditions.

“By changing perspective, we also gradually change and go deeper into our understanding of the audience and the performers. Recognising these types of nuances in the intermediary space does not come as a matter of course. It’s something that arrives through the experience of watching that repeats so many times that the spectator begins to want more … The development in performative practices is not necessarily revealed in that which is observed; instead, it’s the observer who can expand one’s capacity to openness and yielding, enabling a multifaceted experiencing of the performance.”
