2002 - In Art ProjectsDISPLAY + MALE:FEMALE + MEINUNGSBILDUNGSINSTITUT
Landmark, Bergen Kunsthall
24 April 2002
The project was a collaboration with the performance group meinungsbildungsinstitut (Germany) which was established in 2001 by Christina Hänsel and Andre Eiermann from Giessen and the band male:female which consists of Jan Christian Thommesen, Sindre Holme and Håvard Pedersen.
The performance was based on live music, video, text and actions. The texts existed of 24 songs based on a 2002 version of the Odyssee and the theme of travelling. The performance maintained a complicated structure, where each song was connected to changes in video, sound and light. The performance was webcast live over the internet on Landmarks' website. Webcameras were used as an integral part of the performance and we sent postcards to the webcamera through a pulley system.
The project was co-prodused by BEK, Bergen Centre for Electronic Art and financially supported by City of Bergen.
