Choreographers' Atelier 2020/21 - Part 2
BORDER AREAS / BOUNDARIES / BORDERS
The second part of the Choreographers’ Atelier of Tanztendenz München is conceived as a thematic space. In coronavirus-compatible format, this exhibition and its accompanying lecture program medially and simultaneously bring together diverse aspects of the theme of BOUNDARY that would ordinarily happen live and be spread across several days. Life itself can be understood as a border phenomenon: we cannot live without breathing, eating, going beyond our borders and connecting with others....
With lectures by Sabine Hess (anthropology), Sven Rücker (philosophy) and Irene Schütze (art studies), the current contributions of the atelier (part 2) complement the contributions from part 1 by Michaela Ott, Thomas Fuchs, Thomas Dörfler, Günter Lempa, Spyridon Koutroufinis / René Pikarski. The presenters invite viewers to explore diverse aspects of a concept and its boundaries.
The theme of borders as both object and metaphor in politics, territorial and regional development, philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, biology, psychology, art theory, etc find their expression in crucial societal questions about identity, territory, gender, class, nation, culture, health or religion. On the one hand, borders seem to be blurring more and more, yet there is at the same time an obvious yearning for clarity and belonging that expresses itself in themes of differentiation and exclusion.

Sabine Hess: Racial B/order: The EU-European External Border as a Violent Relationship
Against the background of many years of research on external borders, this lecture discusses recent developments of an increasingly systematic use of extra-legal violence in border spaces and shows how brutalization goes hand in hand with notions of Europe as a “white superior project."
Sabine Hess is a professor of Cultural Anthropology / European Ethnology and has directed the Center for Global Migration Studies at the University of Göttingen since 2018.

Sven Rücker: Borderless modernity? Self-birth and self-transcendence.
Just as modernity sees itself in its self-descriptions as an age of dissolution of boundaries and transgression, so too do its subjects. The individual is expected to face ever-new challenges, to be flexible and to understand the whole of life as an ongoing movement of self-transcendence. I would like to retell the genesis of this new and supposedly boundless subjectivity, which begins in the history of ideas with German Idealism and in political history with the French Revolution, yet simultaneously refers back to much older mythemes, above all Hesiod’s “Theogony.” The perspectival vanishing point of this narrative is a different understanding of modernity that contradicts modernity’s central self-descriptions: rather than leading toward a dissolution of all boundaries, it moves toward the emergence of new type of a boundary that allows for a much more massive enclosedness.
Sven Rücker is a lecturer at the Free University of Berlin. His most recent publication was a book about masses (with Gunter Gebauer). Among other projects, he has contributed to “Lange Nacht” (Deutschlandradio) and “Spoken Essay" (SWR) and to the theater piece “Die Terroristen” in Luxembourg and Vienna.

Irene Schütze: Missing references, rudimentary “markings”: dissolving boundaries in art
Borderlines between art and everyday life were negotiated many times in the visual arts of the 20th century: they were repeatedly shifted, transgressed or readjusted. Nowadays, these boundaries seem obsolete in some instances: the cross-reference to the other sphere as an “alien” field is omitted or often only indicated by incomplete “markings.” A lecture on demarcations in the visual arts.
Irene Schütze has been a research associate in Art-Related Theory at Mainz University of the Arts since 2015.
