Within the framework of Vorspiel 2019, the official preliminary program leading up to Transmediale, SomoS Art House presents a day of performance art reflecting on the theme of technological tools as prosthetics; viewing them as enabling-devices for performance and for identity construction within the performative space.
Performance itself, a crucial part of creating and displaying identities, functions as an apparatus through which the dynamics of effect and affect become more than just forms of artistic expression: they surface as abstracted extensions, artificially connected body parts. The presented multi and interdisciplinary performances go beyond the physical, mobilizing both the invisible and the inanimate through their use of techniques and practices ranging from sound and sculpture to embodied irony and the digital space.
Affect/Effect: Performance Prosthesis is an event invested in the de-and-re-construction of identities through the close investigation of performance and technology.
