A day in the life of Mila Harper Blum, by Maya Nitzan

17:00 at Hall 2, ArtEZ, University of the Arts


Mila Harper Blum is a special woman, so we decided to make a movie about her!

We will accompany Mrs. Blum throughout her entire day.

You are welcome to watch our live stream or join us by visiting Mila in her apartment.

She will be delighted to have you!

In the program: enjoying tea and cookies, making crafts, playing board games, dancing to music, cooking meals, and much more!

"A day in the life of Mila Harper Blum" is a performative event developed as part of artistic research that explores the tension between fiction and reality through the embodiment of a fictional character. By imitating living bodies from reality and integrating this imitation act in a simulated pseudo-reality, the research questions how representation can move away from mere description of the world toward a process of transformative becoming, immersing the performer's body into another body to encourage renewed observation and engagement with the world.

Uncrafting Worth, by Andrea van der Kuil

18:00 at ArtEZ, University of the Arts

Welcome to this space.

I am a body.

I am a body amongst bodies.

I am a crafting body before you.

I am a body crafting with you,

And together, I hope we may reach opacity.

Uncrafting Worth  is a durational and nomadic artistic research investigation regarding the worth of the female crafter's body, the craft object she produces, and her crafting process. There has rarely been a time where one's gender, sex, race, ability, sexuality, and class has not had an impact on one's placement in the world. Women, and those identifying as female, have long been subjected to the invisible domestic space to perform women's work, or paraded in the visible space as sexualized objects; placements deeply interwoven with a prescribed worth.

Edouard Glissant's term 'opacity' examines worth by understanding another through difference. Opacity does not see through bodies by reducing them to personal definitions and understandings, but accepts the multiple unknowabilities of the other and the self.

Today, yesterday and tomorrow, I invite you to see the opaque body before you, to see your own opaque body, and to see the opacity of all bodies around you. Uncrafting Worth  seeks to embody the indescribable details of opacity, thereby questioning and forming new ways of assigning worth. I invite you to join me in this endeavour.

Remedies Against Panic, by Anna Fidler

19:00 at Hall 1, ArtEZ, University of the Arts

Is it the end of the world as we know it, or is that just REM playing on the radio? Could signing in the style of Freddie Mercury actually help us break free? Or could screaming 'Rebel Yell' down a microphone point the way to revolution?

'Remedies Against Panic' thinks that karaoke is more than just a drunken night out and could be a portal to a new world order, but this future can't happen without your participation. A culmination of her research on participatory performance practices and post-capitalist possibilities, Remedies Against Panic is and attempt at a co-created, interactive narrative of a post-capitalist future using pop-songs from the 1980s.
