On the Threshold of Performing and Visual Arts
Foreign Affairs Festival 2012–2016
Barbara Gronau, Matthias von Hartz & Carolin Hochleichter (Eds.)
Uncertainty, the present, diversity, theater production and classical dance—these are the themes around which the international performing arts festival Foreign Affairs has drawn artists and audiences over the past four years. Investigating theory and art, global and local realities, Foreign Affairs invites an array of international performing artists to question prevailing political and economic structures on a chosen topic. Believing that our world can be changed, Foreign Affairs takes a distanced look at our own society. How to Frame is both manual and query. It is a collection of ideas, knowledge and experience from all five festivals, including the most recent on the topic of uncertainty, in cooperation with William Kentridge. As artistic director, Kentridge worked with participating artists to develop projects for stage, urban spaces and night exhibitions at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. With contributions from artists Carolin Hochleichter, Ragnar Kjartansson and Catherine Wood among others.
