Bioaktionismus


"(..) material action is painting that has spread beyond the picture surface. The human body, a laid table or a room becomes the picture surface.(..) material action promises the direct pleasures of the table. Material action satiates."

Otto Mühl, MATERIAL ACTION MANIFESTO



In the NEUER WIENER BIOAKTIONISMUS choreographers Magdalena Chowaniec (PL/AT) and Amanda Piña (RCH/AT) recall the spirit of the performative praxis undertook by the Viennese Actionist Group during the 60s and 70s. This happening isn’t just a pure reconstruction but rather an embodied question about the relevance of Actionism today. Between the desire for individual and social disbandment, catharsis and sensual enjoyment, completely submitted to the material, Piña and Chowaniec invite you to this 100% vegan, mystical event.
