Money Machines - A Wandering Sleep installation
28 September, 7pm
Mayer Pavilion invites you to witness a performance by Katja Tannert and Martin Wagner in the attempt of washing the creative act and money from its uncertain past.
“Money Machines” is the opening event of "Art in Residence", an experimental art project by Susan Buckow and generously funded by BBK Bundesverband Bildender Künstler.
The “Art in Residence" program explores the relationship between artists and money through a performative approach.
Across the board, Berlin artists are increasingly seeking affordable spaces, whether apartments or ateliers.
Creatives play a big role in redevelopment of unappealing areas. When they move in collectivism, like the proactive ants doing the dirty work, they are able to transform neglected areas into the coolest areas of the world's cities. That is, until money savvy people start to get their hands on the cake.
Are artists living in a parallel world, untouched by mundane nuisances like money? While they are in many examples creating the premise for economic progress in the city, the stereotype of creatives as unnecessary professionals is still projected in people's minds.
As times are changing, this performance/exhibition aims to explore the artist-money relationship. We might have to overcome the old stereotype of struggling artists in order to ground the artistic profession deeper into the earth.
While the course of the show is clouded in mystery, the outcome is defined: when the performer is taken to bed for the night, one of the guests will overcome her role as the performer.
The next morning, some artifacts will travel with the overnight guest, who is instructed to recreate the "Money Machines” show experience in a new setting. As a result, the traveling exhibition mimics a nomadic process.
Performance in English and German.
