In their collaborative work ‚Back to the Beautiful. Participatory and Performative Actions in Three Rooms’ the Salzburg based artists Sandra Chatterjee and Tomaž Simatović will enter into a dialogue with the visitors. Their work evolves around ways of migration, borders, rituals, protest, power and empowerment. In a series of artistic interventions taking place in the Kavernen, a studio and finally on the dancefloor of republic, people, movement and text converge. In between scientists are creating spaces of discourse and artistic proposals with their lectures by asking ‘How to Empower Anything With What?’. The evening culminates into a Party of social spaces, while savoring good food, massages and the proposals of a DJ.
With Sandra Chatterjee, Nikita Dhawan, Stefan Kaegi, Cynthia Ling Lee, Marissa Lobo, Post Natyam Collective, Tomaž Simatović, Tomaž Tomljanović (among others).
