At the Table
At the Table
Am Tisch – at the table is a transnational project that traces the family table as a central place of negotiation and thus, the smallest social cell. Artists from different disciplines perform their family table across several continents.
In the ten short films of the exhibition they show ruptures, secret codes and open fronts of family negotiation in different social contexts and across national borders. Two performances were adapted for the stage and will be shown in the Atrium:”Lost at home” by Alexander Steindorf (Germany) and “At the sea” by Phaedra Pisimisi (Greece). The result is a kaleidoscope of the family in various and extreme situations – every artist uses their own artistic means to show autobiographical perspectives of absence, emotional and spatial distance, war, loss, as well as emotional violence and the terrors and hopes associated with it.
