The Guest

Performance über die Rollen von Gast und Gastgeber respektive Künstler und Kurator anhand des Textes "Of Hospitality" von Jaques Derrida.

the locale of this performance is important as the basement is the underground, the place of the invisible, the illicit, the unofficial, but also a place of sanctuary and shelter for the marginalized. the guest explores the power struggle between curator and artist, as well as host and guest, roles which curator and artist play in the exhibition process. but as the performance unfolds, it soon becomes clear that both curator and artist are actually just hostages of the public. as the ultimate guests, the public becomes our master.
