Performance Series: Alles was ich habe #2: Dear Visitorby Herbordt / Mohren

Date: Sept 29, 2010, 20:00 Uhr


Location: Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart

Staged exhibition
172 questions on an indeterminate future; 947 archived answers to films, artworks, texts, web searches and expert conversations, various inanimate objects and forgotten memorabilia, a performance tool as archive, mobile research unit, exhibition architecture and a stage.

The second episode of Alles was ich habe arranges various and sundry archive materials into a walk-in landscape. As the lone protagonist, the viewer encounters the model of a world that has yet to take shape. Between questions, objects and notes, between audio guides and messages left, ever new dialogues unfold – mute conversations on how things can go on in the world as we knew it.

»We find ourselves in one of these multilayered, thought-through, theatrical installations of the duo of Bernhard Herborft and Melanie Mohren, which, in the form of a labyrinthine archive of written notes, voices and object collages, represents nothing less than a fundamental inventory of life,« writes Doris Meierhenrich in the Berliner Zeitung on Alles was ich habe #1 in the Sophiensaele, June 14, 2010
