One thing that all Kontejner’s projects have in common, at least from an entirely subjective viewpoint, is precisely that very direct, unequivocal focus on that which is “human, all too human” or phenomena that coexist with the standards of humanity. In this sense, Kontejner’s work is a permanent cabaret with acts that deal with the transgression of social conventions, with passions and fears related to machines and cybernetic mechanisms, obsessions with sensual pleasures and obstacles that prevent us from indulging in them…- Maroje Mrduljas, architecture and design critic, Zagreb.

Performance Matters, Performing Idea – Living Archives6th OctoberLiving Archives 3:00-7:30pmToynbee StudiosWith: Anne Bean, Rose English, Hannah Hurtzig, Janez Jan a and Heike Roms Gripped by a kind of ‘archive fever’, contemporary art and culture is driven by the desire to document, store and preserve. The archive is now a vast global edifice, crossing cultures and forms and reaching further and further into the past. Fleeting exchanges and moments are everywhere evidenced in contemporary art’s multiple but unstable papers, artefacts and traces. But what happens to the life of art in its archival forms? What is the archive doing with performance, performers with the archive? Speakers will address the relation between artists and the archival drive, the artist’s experiences and body as a kind of living archive.
