visual arts X dance

With visual arts X dance the Workshops & Research Projects offer a very special focus. 40 classes, curated by Tino Sehgal, Louise Höjer and Rio Rutzinger, are in particular addressing visual artists, dancers, choreographers and people of familiar backgrounds still in training or already in the midst of their own careers. To diverse topics (critical writing, curatorial theory, sculptural experiments, performance…) they are aiming to investigate or create intersections and symbioses of these two genres. With  pathbreaking artists of both fields, such as a.o. Klaus Biesenbach, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Tacita Dean, Koo Jeong A, Thomas Oberender, Meg Stuart… . DOSSIER
