SOIRÉE: DAS ABSTRAKTE IN DER KUNST
This year as a part of the KLEE exhibition in Basel ( A cooperation with the Fondation Beyeler and Theater Basel ) I was asked to present a work of mine at the Theater Basel Foyer stage and speak about abstraction in dance. I presented a work I made for the the four apprentices of Ballet Theater Basel called “Duet Duet”. Thank you Pavel for a great experience!
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the abandonment of the figurative was not only a central topic for many European artists in the fine arts: in literature, in music and in the performing arts, too, more abstract forms of expression emerged. Based on the exhibition “Paul Klee – The Abstract Dimension” at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, the soirée embarks on an interdisciplinary search for traces of abstraction in art – with high-caliber conversation partners and artistic contributions.
