UNTER  GANG  ART

updating the downfall


What (and w
ho) is actually going down, when we nowadays talk about the downfall? Are the limits of growth also the limits of our world? And how are we approaching the downfall, how do we speak our way towards it?


In a time of media hysteria about the crisis, of anonymous natural forces and financial catastrophes, Thomas Jelinek and his guests – prominent end time analysts, downfall-focused art-researchers, as well as common-or-garden losers from next door – invite you to participate in the downfall and take part in the endgame. Not without being aware of the certain pathos in the negotiation of the psychotic liturgy of the present, between congress-, passion- and demonstrationdances, driven by the call to selfempowerment, they open up a public, transdisciplinary space for discussion and artistic experimentation. A performative laboratory as discourse-space in the constantly recurring downfall and reconstruction game. A space for action, in order not to remain mute; an artistic suggestion against the perhaps greatest danger – namely that in the end everything remains unchanged.
