“Collective Exhibition for a Single Body – The Private Score – Vienna 2019” is an exhibition of performance gestures created by artists from Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.
The first presentation of “Collective Exhibition for a Single Body” was realized at documenta 14, 2017 in Athens and in Kassel. The score was based on the works by the artists in the exhibition. The present iteration of this project continues in Vienna with the investigation of gestures once generated in the East European socialist era in the 1960s and 1970s. It will also include works by artists from the 1990s generation who re-activated the utopian emancipatory potential of the Neo-Avant-garde. The gestures proposed by the artists will be translated into a score and performed by dancers who make unexpected appearances in everyday situations.
