Public Guided Tour with Franziska Nori and Altaira Caldarella

23.05.2024, 18:00

The curator of the exhibition “Who has power? Bodies on Strike” Franziska Nori and Altaira Caldarella, a political scientist specialised in critical social theory and feminist theory, will give a joint guided tour about the new works created for the exhibition by the artists Gintarė Sokelytė and Sonja Yakovleva. In conversation with Franziska Nori, Altaira Caldarella will talk about her corporeal experience as a participant in Gintarė Sokelytė’s video installation * (Asterix) and address her theoretical engagement with corporeality, power, material needs and feminist strikes.

For the installation * (Asterix), Altaira Caldarella and four other volunteers answered Gintarė Sokelytė’s questions about fear, power and order mounted with ropes on a metal sculpture. Exposed to the camera’s gaze, their bodies ached from the gravity of their own weight. Sokelytė utilises this transcendent state of essentiality to gain a deeper insight into the perceptions of society and self.

The tour costs €5 in addition to the exhibition admission fee. No registration is necessary.

Please note that the tour will be held in German.
