The Living Virtual Theatre (2020)

Omsk Social Club began creating intuitive gaming boards in 2019. These boards acted as both aesthetic artistic objects that can be viewed in a native gallery setting and/or they were designed to offer a gateway into their conceptual practice of Real Game Play*​.​ ​

 

Gateways naturally presume a space of transition, yet perhaps the boards offer more of a crossroads than a simple choice to enter or not. As there are so many routes, one can take with these boards, an infinite number of possibilities can be born or rejected across these boards.

 

Historically, Crossroads are extremely charged spaces – choices have to be made, fears, facts and fictions overlap and of course the acknowledgement that choosing one path immediately closes down another. The anthropologist Victor Turner notes that Crossroads create “liminal zones” ambiguous threats and potent transformations are promised from this hybrid of cultural geography.

 

Another liminal zone that is ever more present in our fates and fabrications of narratives is the internet and the Game boards were designed with the architecture of the world wide web in mind. Symbols appear as do uncuffed words – one finds the recognisable along with jargon and chaos. This new mode of communication technology, the internet materially embodies our ability to discover and exploit natural laws through the exercise of reason, it is but all form of humanity rotting in its beautiful abyss.

 

And to survive you have to keep moving, as you do with the Game boards do not let your rational mind close your intuitive core that is the only rule of understanding the simulation we live in both in fiction and reality.

 

The Living Virtual Theatre e​xamines the notion of Chapel Perilous: A Temporary Decentralized Temple inspired by Simone Weil, Robert Anton Wilson, thee temple ov psychick youth and many other practitioners of reality crafting. The board guides the user’s unconscious mind through pathways such as the Bootcamp for losing yourself in ten easy steps or lucid dying in the age of Necropolitics.

 

Each route will offer a new set of horizons, allowing the viewer to perform an entangled reading of the work and their own lived reality. Omsk Social Club declares the only way to really view this work is participation as the perception of viewing, over the opening weekend there will also be guides that take the viewer deeper into the work and their unconscious landscape.

*A live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role playing game (rpg) where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions.

Real Game Play (RGP) mutation of rpg see above, is a combination of Larp and your own identity/lived experience – think of it like a meta structure of you and the character given to you to act out.

Contamination/Resilience

Hi-Intensity

The Impossibility of Living Without Each Other

 

Contamination means danger—and change: which systems and structures are currently in the process of dissolution? How do they change, and under which circumstances do they reappear in the current crisis? We bring in resilience as counter-image and counter-strategy. The pressing question of our time is: what makes communities and ecosystems resilient?

Contamination/Resilience gathers practices, theories, sci-fi-novels and artworks that pursue queer and eco-feminist ideas and stimulate a new way of thinking about the future. It is about sickness and care, as well as mutual support – and about reciprocal change.

Le Sang, Performance

In videos, performances, sets, installations and texts, Sabrina Röthlisberger addresses pain, sickness, medically induced liminal states, death, survival, recovery and the questionable “return to normal”. In the context of CONTAMINATION/RESILIENCE, her work opens up space and time to step into an underworld – looking at the world from the perspective of the sickbed, from assumed failure and weakness, it evokes the power of the powerless, other possible worlds and a dark erotic potential.

 

Sabrina Röthlisbergers installation in the Protozone will be activated by the artist in the first night with the live-performance “Le Sang”, that is based on her poetry book with the same title. Sabrina Röthlisberger developed “Le Sang” at the Centre d’art contemporain in Geneva, in collaboration with fellow artists Garance Bonard (music) and Tamara Alegre (choreography).

Radical
Sociability

24.10. 14-16

What started out as a vigilante strategy for bringing accountability to powerful people who had previously been immune to any consequences for their actions, is increasingly becoming an unreflective method for bullying within communities. Whether to call it call-out culture, cancel-culture or shaming-culture is hotly debated, but regardless of its name, by now its toxicity is undeniable.

 

Lou Drago has been investigating identity politic’s role in perpetuating what socio-political observers have called the “fracturing of the Left,” and cancel-culture’s role in deepening divides along identity-based lines. For this initial workshop, Drago will introduce their ideas around enacting intersectional affinity through a process called Radical Sociability, and through a series of exercises, speculate with participants on how to be receptive and humble in order to really enact solidarity.

 

Together participants will be invited to share experiences and ideas as to why the ‘Left’ have so readily taken up the oppressors’ tools, and how we might combat this to encourage solidarity and empathy instead of doing capital’s divisive work for it.

 

Limited number of participants, please register here.

Critical
Cam Girl
Reading
Group

24.10. 16-18

In her practice Ehrenstein focusses on the intersections of networked images, tech and migration. Material culture as well as science and technology studies are the basis of looking at representation and platform capitalism through a queer feminist, decolonial lens.

For the “Critical Cam Girl Reading Group” Anna Ehrenstein teamed up with “House of Tupamaras” .

Ehrenstein also worked within the Collective for “Tupamaras Technophallus” , the work cycle shown at “Protozone”.

The workshop has three parts. A start through collective reading of decolonial science, tech and post-humanist studies critique spiced up with femme empowerment poetics,

second; encouraging the participator to develop it’s absolutely new posthuman alter ego and

third (virtually tune) in “House of Tupamaras” to transform oral and written theory into embodied knowledge games and cam girl dances.

 

Please register for the workshop here, so that we know how many of you show up :)

The self-help community dispensary

The self-help community dispensary is a space to find healing, to practice self-care and care for the community – built by the many and made for the many. It is a pharmacy for togetherness, a place to heal, to sooth, to take care and mutually protect each other.

 

The remedies will be made collectively on the 14th of November 2020.

 

The workshop is already fully booked, but the remedies can be collected from the evening of the 14th.

dj-set/listening session

Around 3 a.m. Born in a bubble out of a bubble – the dj sets of Zurich’s most known unknown Baby Val form a mixture of different worlds ranging from elektro and techno to jungly breaks with a tip of cheesy rnb edits every now and then. Her way of mixing is an approach to break in and out of conventional and monotonous dancefloor rythms and to fall in another dimension of sphere that she’s going to play with – at any time possible to explode.

Safe Touch

Self-isolation is an additional intimate discrimination against the elderly, the sick, and singles. But there is intimacy that doesn’t need touch, and there are ways to touch safely. Just as people developed an understanding of “safe sex” in response to the AIDS crisis, we now have to learn and promote “safe touch.”

 

Safe Touch is a tutorial video, directed by Ingo Niermann for the Army of Love, on how to be safely intimate with strangers during the Corona crisis

making histories together in more-than-human worlds

curated by Lucie Tuma

 

This Protozone is an invitation to linger and nest, to dwell and exist. The space is being inhabited by different artistic positions. Different but not separate – in difference and yet not to be separated from each other. Over years and in continuity, the practices and processes of the invited artists have been in close contact with more-than-human forms of existence. Spectres, rocks, water, algorithms, slime mold, swarms, plants, Artificial Intelligence, quantum leaps and AlterIdentities. These contacts generate a state of transpassing. With it come shifts, variations, mutations.

 

As soon as we enter, the hereby mutated temporalities will seize us. We are at the end of «our time».

every Saturday 14-20 and Sunday 14-18

REPRO COMMUNAL GATHERING (ReproRealityHackLab #8) Transformella malor [4.4.6.14] (emerging from J P Raether’s figurations as SelfSister’s aLifveForms.earth)

 

Transformella malor, an artificial being, constructed by language, technologies of skins and digital devices, holds a gathering to present and discuss their psychorealist findings on what they call „Reprovolution“ – the moments and sites driving the transformation of humanity’s reproduction by means of industrial and globalized reproductive technologies.

 

At the gathering Transformella will share their embodied experience in harvesting fragments of knowledge and language, sites and lifetimelines in „Repro-normality“, the invisible materialization of globalized biotechnological speculation in everysite.

 

The gathering is part of a series of encounters that Transformellae have called ReproReality HackLabs and that were hosted in Berlin, Lüneburg and Utrecht in the recent years. They function as a communal nexus to weave a multiplicity of narrations and research, tools and devices for reproductive justice and and queer-feminist kinship.

 

The session will include readings of Transformella´s repro-communal manifesto, their narrations of „Ikeality“ – a stack of reproductive normalities found at the mass reproduction storage „Ikeae everysite“ and more abstract models of entropy and negentropy of other Artificial Identities.

 

The gathering is also an intervention into narratives that are dominated by political formalism, professional knowledge barriers and corporate speculation. Transformella on the contrary invites to gather in queerness, expanding on mythopoetic figures and multi-species existence: Becoming chimera, realtional against biological essence and capitalist normalizations.

 

In English, duration for about 2-3h hours

The
Orange
Game

5.6. 16-18

Deborah Birch

 

The Orange Game is an oracle storytelling practice for collective future worldings. Remixed from a teenage divination game that functions to read an individual, this practice works as a tool for reiterated and sustained collective worldings. The Orange Game works by a continuous weaving, dreaming, and reading a landscape together. As a Weaver, I place the Dreamers somewhere and then give them each an Element to describe. Collectively the Dreamers build a landscape. Each Element has a symbolism. The Reading at the end interprets the collective worlding. The Orange Game is conceived as a modulable and sustained collective practice that develops over time in accordance with the needs of the group.

 

It has been developed by Deborah Birch in conversation with Sarah Parolin. Find out more about The Orange Gamehere

Paloma Ayala, Anne-Laure Franchette, and Riikka Tauriainen talk about their shared practice based on riverine ecologies.

Online participation possible via this Zoom Link

 

“As water, we all owe ourselves to other bodies of water. As water, we all eventually pass our waters on. Even while in constant motion, water is also a planetary archive of meaning and matter. To drink a glass of water is to ingest the ghosts of bodies that haunt that water.»
Astrida Neimanis

 

The River Oracle is meant to be a situating tool for self reflection, asking questions to the river, wondering what it can tell us. The cards are trying to find their way into material reality through you. We are not particularly interested in thinking about the oracle as a tool to predict your future. What we actually want is for you to connect with your present, with a sense of deep knowledge, in order to embrace (self-) awareness. The cards are printed by water and infused with stories created by an encounter of artists in the riverine ecology of the Rhein.

 

The River Oracle was developed by Paloma Ayala, Anne-Laure Franchette, and Riikka Tauriainen. Cyanotypes printed by Paloma Ayala, Vanesa Ayala, Anne-Laure Franchette, Jocelyn Lopez, Carolina Opazo, Laura Rodriguez, Riikka Tauriainen, Kay Zhang, and PlanteSorcieres – Caterina Giansiracusa / Andrea Herrera Poblete.

You're
So Busy

11.06 – 25.07.2021

 

Would you rather feel too busy or not busy enough?*

 

(Fühlen Sie sich lieber zu beschäftigt oder nicht beschäftigt genug?)

 

Unsere dritte Protozone, You’re So Busy, präsentiert eine Reihe von Projekten live in der Shedhalle. Die eingeladenen Arbeiten werden sich während der sieben Wochen entwickeln und den Raum mit Spuren von Prozessen füllen, die sowohl vor als auch während der Protozone laufen.

 

Jedes Projekt konzentriert sich auf Fürsorge und radikale Liebe, wobei horizontale Organisationsstrukturen im Vordergrund stehen, die durchlässig bleiben und dem Publikum verschiedene Möglichkeiten des Zugangs und der Teilnahme bieten. Es werden dabei neue Wege erforscht, künstlerische Prozesse auszustellen, inklusive Gemeinschaften aufzubauen und Zeit im Ausstellungsraum zu erleben.

Wir glauben, dass diese Praktiken entscheidend sind, um uns zu helfen, nicht einfach mit denselben Methoden und Idealen weiterzumachen, auf die wir uns vor 2020 verlassen haben. You’re So Busy ist sowohl ein Aufruf als auch eine Weigerung, übersehen zu werden, und fordert, dass den Menschen, Praktiken und Prozessen Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wird, die Ideen von Normalität, Produktivität und Kapital ausser Acht lassen.

Would you rather feel too busy or not busy enough?*

 

Our third Protozone, You’re So Busy, will present a series of projects live at Shedhalle. The works included will develop throughout its seven weeks, accumulating and filling the space with traces of processes developed both previous to and during the Protozone. Each project focuses on care and radical love, prioritizing horizontal organizational structures that remain porous, allowing audiences various points of entry and engagement. Exploring new ways of exhibiting artistic processes, building inclusive communities, and experiencing time in the exhibition space.

 

We believe these practices are crucial to help us not simply return or reassume activity with the same methods and ideals we relied on before 2020. You’re So Busy is both a calling out and a refusal to be overlooked, asking for attention to be paid to people, practices and processes that ideas of normal, productivity and capital discount.

Proto-Club2 (be)longing immerses us in the intimate and poetic sound – and visual worlds of four artists whose practices are deeply interwoven with queer concerns. Their works radically expand the horizon of possible representations and ideas of bodies, relationships and worlds. The people and mythical beings that appear in them resist suppression and insist on the possibilities of the present, change and queer futures.

 

Proto-Club is a series by Shedhalle, circulating around queer culture, eco feminism and social movements. It seeks to create an ongoing process around these topics, connecting them to speculative and science-fictional ideas.

Lo-Intensity 20.09.-31.10. jeden Sa 14-20h & So 14-18h

 

Das Ausstellungsformat “Protozone” der Shedhalle zeigt prozess-basierte Kunst in Phasen von hoher und niedriger Intensität (Hi-/Lo-Intensity-Phases). Die aktuelle Protozone4 Extra Worlding erforscht künstlerische Praktiken des “Worlding”, was “Welten machen” oder “Welten bauen” bedeutet.

Die teilnehmenden Künstler*innen sind stark von Science-Fiction-Ideen beeinflusst. Sie nutzen digitale Technologien oder verändern Körper und Räume, um Zugang zu einer Vielzahl von Welten zu schaffen und deren Möglichkeiten zu erkunden. Extra Worlding lädt die Besucher*innen ein, in diese Welten einzutauchen und sie zu erleben.

 

Extra Worlding erkundet zudem die materiellen Grundlagen zeitgenössischer digitaler Technologien, die oft am “Worlding” beteiligt sind. Schliesslich bestehen digitale Technologien nicht wirklich aus “Clouds”, sondern sind vielmehr abhängig von Server-Farmen sowie Ressourcen wie seltenen Erden, Elektrizität und menschlicher Arbeit.

 

Können uns ‚Worlding’-Erfahrungen ermutigen, die Welten zu schaffen, in denen wir leben wollen? Und können sie unseren Widerstand gegen Welten stärken, an denen wir nicht teilhaben wollen?

Shedhalle’s exhibition format „Protozone“ focuses on process-based art through Hi- and Lo-Intensity phases. The new Protozone4 Extra Worlding explores artistic practices of worlding, a term used to describe the building or making of worlds.

 

The participating artists are strongly influenced by science fiction ideas. They use digital technologies or alter bodies and spaces to access a variety of worlds and explore their possibilities. Extra Worlding invites visitors to dive into and explore these worlds with their own bodies.

 

This Protozone also explores the materiality of contemporary digital technologies that are often involved in the process of worlding. After all, digital technologies do not really consist of “Clouds” but rather rely on server farms as well as resources like rare earths, electricity and human labour.

 

Can worlding-experiences open up new perspectives on what kind of worlds we want to live in? And can they strengthen our resistance against worlds we don’t want to be part of?

Becoming

18.09.

a viral performance in mutation

 

Shu Lea Cheang, 2021

With Isabelle Arvers (producer), Mathieu Marguerin (VFX director),

Roland Lauth (3D avatar design) and Aérea Negrot (music composition)

 

Sa, 18.9. 17-20 open casting performance

So, 19.9. 16-19 motion capture performance

 

UKI Virus Becoming takes the script excerpts from Shu Lea Cheang’s UKI, a sci-fi viral alt-reality cinema in the making and stages aspects of UKI’s film production in progress as live performance with its production crew members and the presence of spectators.

Conceived as a sequel to Cheang’s acclaimed scifi cyberpunk cult film, I.K.U. (2000), UKI tells the story of REIKO, a defunct IKU (orgasm) coder dumped on E-trashville by GENOM Co., whose eventful trajectories through the E-trashvile lead to UKI virus becoming. In her attempt to reboot herself, REIKO engages herself with the diverse, other-worldly E-trashville inhabitants that include human, non-human, nerds, geeks, trans-mutants, symbionts, microbes and variants. Emerging as UKI the virus amidst the noise blast, UKI propagates as critical mass and takes up the mission to infiltrate the occupied human body, to sabotage GENOM Co’s OrgaNismo production, to reclaim her own lost IKU data.

For its production, one plotline of UKI’s multi-threaded narratives unfolds in Unity (a game engine) constructed virtual E-trashville where REIKO and the E-trashville inhabitants are featured as 3D avatars. As a viral performance in mutation, UKI virus becoming at Shedhalle stages two production aspects as performance.

[1] Open casting with locally recruited performers.

[2] Motion Capture and 3D avatar rendering of VFX in the making.

The two performances foreground “behind the scene” film production. By holding the production process in public view, the creation of a new queer scifi cinema genre is demystified. The public are invited to join the filmmakers, the performers, the hardware and the software of digital technology in a conspiring scheme of UKI virus becoming.

So, 19.9. 16-19 motion capture performance

 

UKI Virus Becoming takes the script excerpts from Shu Lea Cheang’s UKI, a sci-fi viral alt-reality cinema in the making and stages aspects of UKI’s film production in progress as live performance with its production crew members and the presence of spectators.

Conceived as a sequel to Cheang’s acclaimed scifi cyberpunk cult film, I.K.U. (2000), UKI tells the story of REIKO, a defunct IKU (orgasm) coder dumped on E-trashville by GENOM Co., whose eventful trajectories through the E-trashvile lead to UKI virus becoming. In her attempt to reboot herself, REIKO engages herself with the diverse, other-worldly E-trashville inhabitants that include human, non-human, nerds, geeks, trans-mutants, symbionts, microbes and variants.

14-18h: LAST CHANCE Exhibition open, 18-20h: Fade out human mimikry night – Farewell to “Extra-Worlding” with artists of Protozone4 & Shedhalle Team

 

Shedhalle’s exhibition format „Protozone“ focuses on process-based art through Hi- and Lo-Intensity phases. The new Protozone4 Extra Worlding explores artistic practices of worlding, a term used to describe the building or making of worlds.

 

The participating artists are strongly influenced by science fiction ideas. They use digital technologies or alter bodies and spaces to access a variety of worlds and explore their possibilities. Extra Worlding invites visitors to dive into and explore these worlds with their own bodies.

 

This Protozone also explores the materiality of contemporary digital technologies that are often involved in the process of worlding. After all, digital technologies do not really consist of “Clouds” but rather rely on server farms as well as resources like rare earths, electricity and human labour.

 

Can worlding-experiences open up new perspectives on what kind of worlds we want to live in? And can they strengthen our resistance against worlds we don’t want to be part of?

Tarik Hayward

 

(5.12.21 16:00-17:30)

CANCELLED due to illness

 

During his two weeks of research at Shedhalle, Tarik Hayward invites the audience to a research moment revolving around his work “Pure Life” (2019). “Pure Life” was developed in the context of an exchange with American poet, playwright, and translator Ariana Reines organized as part of Swiss Foundation Pro Helvetia’s Cahier d’artiste publication series (click here for the publication).

 

“Pure Life” is named after a water from a well-known Swiss multinational company and consists in water extracted from pig’s blood. Hayward reproduces this exact moment of water extraction for an interested audience at the Shedhalle on December 5.

Shedhalle is currently under construction for the new Protozone, so we’re opening the back door for a video screening of “Hardbreakes”:

 

All humans know it: wishing for something that in the end does not bring happiness at all. Be it in love, with plans for the future or in the search for solutions to problems – longing can also bring pain.

 

Inspired by Lauren Berlant’s book “Cruel Optimisim”, people in Wollishofen were asked about their unfulfilled wishes and how they deal with heartbreak. The conversations can be discovered in the video, which is published here.

QUEER TRUST is an attitude that draws from and relies on the in-between. It has shaped the work at Shedhalle as a space for process-based art since 2020 and is also the basis of Protozone8. The exhibition shows artistic works and ways of working that trust in relationships and processes beyond fixed attributions. The participating artists share intimate, vulnerable, open, and courageous artwork. In doing so, they question (gender) identities as well as artistic, scientific, and social traditions and classifications.

“This performance explores bestiality as a philosophical and political concept by drawing on the stigma that historically frames queers and PoC as monstrous.

 

Through readings of my recent romantic/radical poems accompanied by the lyrical vocals of Makeda Monnet and the electronic music of Victor da Silva.

 

BEAST! explores utopian queer passions, rituals for lost ones, dark corners to protect oneself in, erotic dreams, and… you’ll see. All the poems are from my last poetry book LE SANG! (BLOOD!) published by Lafayette Anticipations.”

Protozone9

brings together three artists for their first major institutional collaboration in Switzerland. Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak, and Nicholas Grafia, friends who come from very different backgrounds, will spend a two-week-residency-period at Shedhalle. Together they will develop a spatial installation with their drawings, paintings, sculptural and video works.

 

And they will work on a new performance that will be presented on 16th and 17th of December, exploring the possibilities of experimental and political theatre. With references to absurdist performance and humorous play, they focus on social reality. They draw on narratives that are derived from socially stigmatized individuals and their bodily histories, but also their resilience and resistance.
