The Game by Viviana González Méndez
The Game by Viviana González Méndez: This game comes from learning about how traditions, coming from rural and suburban context of popular Andean world, understand and create relationships with their surroundings. Distilled from these traditions is, especially, the idea that space is understood as a community of beings that are interwoven and in constant dialogue with each other. By this logic, there is no hierarchical difference between the human and other beings. But if we accept that places can be beings, then we should also include them as part of this community. And what surrounds us are not simply objects but living entities with which we could establish relations of reciprocity.

The Festival – Online-Performance with Judica Albrecht and Armin Wieser: ‘The Festival’ is based on a collection of impossible programme contributions: 
In the online performance, you will encounter Judica Albrecht and Armin Wieser as they speak out against the impossibilities of these programme contributions, against forgetting and being forgotten. The two report from remote regions, taste pieces of new music together and with you. Via Zoom and yet in the same room of the Schaudepot. The boundaries between the past and the present, live events and recording, document and fiction are blurred in an almost twisted game of deception.
