28 Nov 2020 19:00 (CET) Performance: The Possessed Gaze, Jasmine Schädler (Webinar & Live Stream)
The possessed Gaze - a video call performance
With guest appearances of Angela Postweiler and students of HfBK Hamburg
We mirror, externalise, divide, lose ourselves. The leftovers are not considered human anymore. We call them data and feed them into frameworks we call machines or algorithms. But we cannot forget these remnants all together. Remorsefully we start to anthropomorphize their new shells. Suddenly we live among aliens we created but actually we are only looking at amputated parts of ourselves.
Are you looking at me?
Mark is possessed by Algorithma.
They look through his eyes at everyone else.
The stars watch from above, streaming ethereal power, acting upon their destiny.
Jasmin Schädler was born in Illertissen in 1989. After completing her bachelor’s degree in physics and cultural studies, she studied theater directing at the Academy of Performing Arts Baden-Württemberg and in the master art praxis at the Dutch Art Institute. The overarching subject of her work is the questioning of knowledge hierarchies. Coming from an intersectional perspective she investigates the relationship between space, perception and identity in both analog and digital. In doing so, she deals with data collection, reporting and the questioning of conventions of knowledge production. She is a fellow of Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg und Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and a founding member of the performance collective die apokalyptischen tänzerin*nen, as well as a founding and board member of the association InterAKT Initiative e.V., which realizes music and performance projects in the Stuttgart area.
