"Archive of lost events 2020" published
The Ruhrtriennale 2020, which was cancelled because of COVID-19, invites with a digital collection of voices of invited artists to an "Archive of Lost Events 2020".
In a multitude of video, audio and text contributions, more than 25 artists' works that were planned for the Ruhrtriennale 2020 will focus on the changes in their content and working methods caused by the pandemic. Inspired by a digital magazine, the exhibition features a wide variety of perspectives from around the world, including Artiste associé Christoph Marthaler and Anna Viebrock, nora chipaumire, Serge Aimé Coulibaly, Edu Haubensak, Elaine Mitchener, Kornél Mundruczó, Steven Sloane, Brigitta Muntendorf and Stephanie Thiersch, Mariano Pensotti, raumlaborberlin, Akira Takayama and Meg Stuart. In addition, the film El Público (29.8., 20.00 hrs) by Mariano Pensotti and the production Pieces of a Woman (12.9., 20.00 hrs) by Kornél Mundruczó are available online for 24 hours.
"After the cancellation of the Ruhrtriennale 2020, the artists agreed to sketch their lost works in short and very different original contributions. We would like to thank all the artists for their generosity and the beauty of their contributions and messages," says Stefanie Carp, artistic director of the Ruhrtriennale 2018 - 2020.
The archive is available from August 14th - the original opening date of the Ruhrtriennale 2020 - to October 31st, 2020, at edition2020.ruhrtriennale.de.
Stefanie Carp's artistic direction of the Ruhrtriennale 2018 - 2020 ends on October 31st, 2020, under the bracket of "In between times". This year's Ruhrtriennale should have taken place from August 14th to September 20th, 2020, with 33 productions and projects, including 12 premieres and first performances, in 17 different venues in Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg, Essen, Gladbeck and Wuppertal.
