The performance evening of Felix Meyer-Christian and Dan Allon presents a dynamic composition of time-based art. Both artists are profoundly interested in the themes of memories, violence and its cultural and personal effect. They investigate different ways of cultural and emotional effect of power structures. Together they give a generous look on a wide variety of subjects while telling concrete stories.
While Meyer-Christian’s work is self-reflecting and meditative, Allon’s work is explosive and confrontational. Meyer-Christian’s work Transient Memory is offering a unique observation on the aesthetics of memory, methods of editing material and authorship through a “guided tour” in his personal stories. Allon’s work The Bar Mitzva is recreating the sensation of being a 13-year-old boy going through a traumatic Moroccan-style Jewish ceremony, in a humoristic yet direct way.
The evening is 1 hour long and a talk would be taking place afterwards.
