Hanne Lippard @ KW, Oct 2

, 1 October 2014

Performance artist Hanne Lippard is taking over Berlin’s KW Institute for Contemporary Art with a “reading for fans” titled The Performative Minute this Thursday, October 2 at 7pm.

The reading performance comes as the first of what will become a weekly ritual, with the invited artist working to record and reflect current developments of the performance art scene, and Lippard’s Thursday reading takes on the topic of the office environment as a potential Eco-system, “deployed by the human endeavor to seek success”.

She takes a critical view to the rat race of modern life, using a to-do list as a metaphor for the exhaustive and endless cycles with life and its echos – “to-do, to-do, to-do” – which appears as both a rhythmic and primal thumping of the heart and a ceaseless call to command.
