Tischgesellschaft “Wieder da”, 22.-24.01.+19./20.02.+01.-03.04.2021, online

“How do you share ideas? How do you share money?” On the basis of these questions, Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft created a dialogue platform projected for four years (2018-2021) and is thus starting an initiative to network, divide resources and create continuity in exchanging knowledge among creators of art.
Tischgesellschaften” are made possible with support from the TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund and take place at regular intervals in different constellations and at different places.

In order to continue researching the economies and principles of sustainability and sharing from an artistic perspective, Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft will organize a multi-day “Online-Tischgesellschaft” in cooperation with HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden from 22. January 2021 that is focused on revivals; it opens a dialogue between national artists, sociologists, philosophers, archivists and audience members for several days.

In the spirit of repetition as a gesture of sharing, the Tischgesellschaft “WIEDER DA” is planned online in multiple episodes made up of processes of re-evaluation, audience talks, lectures and podium discussions based on four questions: What recyclable resources does a piece have? What do revivals have to do with sustainability? What function does waste have in art? What does repetition produce?

Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft will open up the discourse about revivals with the revival process of her own piece “Vertanzt“, which premiered in 2011 at Kampnagel Hamburg. Due to the pandemic-induced lockdown, no revival will take place in front of an audience. Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft is thus sharing her multi-week work process of re-appropriation and reflection on the subject – “what remains from a piece after ten years and what are reasons for looking at it again?” – in the form of a film documentary which will be broadcast by HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden on 22.01.2021. In the context of this documentary, the participating Tischgesellschaft members for the coming episodes will be present online to speak with you in talks beforehand and discussions afterwards.

We would be pleased to have you participate in our reoccurring dialogue in multiple episodes to share knowledge and resources with cultural professionals and audiences!
