Konferenz am Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart –Berlin: "Embodied Histories – Entangled Communities. Southeast Asian and Western Approaches to Narratives and Performance Art"

13.06.2019 - 14.06.2019

Eine Kooperation vom Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin mit dem Exzellenzcluster 2020 "Temporal Communities: Doing Literatur in a Global Perspective" der Freien Universität Berlin, mit Unterstützung des Goethe-Instituts Südostasien.

The conference seeks to open up new perspectives on storytelling, narrativisations of history and their embodiment in performative arts and practices in Southeast Asia. Central questions are how, in very different ways, these practices offer new potentials to be presented, understood and collected, and how diverse audiences are mobilised by performative arts in relation to the conditions of community building inside and outside the realm of cultural institutions.

Contemporary performance art is characterised by hybridity, non-linear temporalities, cross-media connections, and the social contexts of various (art) histories. In addition to performance practices and modes of presentation, the entangled mythologies, literary narratives and political histories of Southeast Asia and the West also exert an influence on the embodied knowledge in the social communities concerned.

The conference “Embodied Histories – Entangled Communities” discusses selected examples of performative practices as well as historical and classical narratives with a special focus on blind spots in traditional historiography, which become performatively embodied and thus tangible. These include the consequences of colonialism and modernity, the contingent political and cultural conditions in different regions, but also alternative perspectives capable of promoting the deconstruction and decentralisation of the canon in question.
