The Movement by Herbordt/Mohren
New movements challenge politics and society. How, where and by whom do they arise? What changes can come from them? And what role does art have to play in the process?
‘Die Bewegung’ (‘The Movement’) is a performance piece for two spectators. In a large public office or newspaper editorial office, a district town hall or museum. The spectators carry an inconspicuous bag with them. Inside: a theatre machine with a video monitor, loudspeakers, text documents and various objects from an archive. It turns the respective venue into a theatre and engages the audience in a multimedia conversation: What would happen if this encounter became the starting point of a social and transnational movement?
