Truth & Dare/Art as Hermaphroditism - deufert&plischke

The Hermaphrodite in its permanent inconclusiveness is the figure of an unrest. It is in permanent transition. It needs the world around it, its definitions and constitutive powers. So it can cause a turbulence in the order of things. Meanings start to drift in its presence. Culturally the Hermaphrodite is not allowed to live or to be itself, it proposes an obscene error. It is not a useful creature. But it also generates a stage for debate and discussions, it radicalizes existing positions. Art as Hermaphroditism has to constantly reformulate a standing in society by affirming the unstable ground of its position. The workshop "Art as Hermaphroditism" investigates the figure of the Hermaphrodite, its myth, its potential for artistic processes and its presences in our society today. The workshop is based on reformulation, a writing practice for choreographic processes invented by deufert&plischke.
