Secret Project / Workshop / Performance / Frankfurt

Seeking fearless performers/participants for an investigative workshop and performance. The project is a social, artistic, and pedagogical experiment. Those with experience in immersive performance or public interventions are especially relevant—but all backgrounds, experience levels, ages, sizes and shapes, are welcome to apply. What’s most important is a sincere interest in interrogating the imaginary constructs of personal and collective space, through an immersive social experiment in which the participant herself is both subject and object of critique.

Our engagement begins with a 2 week-long workshop intensive that is based on the artist’s methodologies. At its conclusion, you will perform in a performance for the Frankfurt public. The workshop is approached as a participatory, durational artwork in itself—one that will expand and merge with the public through the final manifestation.

About the Artist

Grace Euna Kim is an artist and theorist working in immersive and intervening performance, as a means to interrogate and reimagine the processes of social reality. Her present research draws from a critique of history and language, toward issues of intersubjectivity and the decentered subject, the ideology of bodies in space, the ontology of truth inside fiction—fiction inside truth, and the paradoxes of desire, recognition, and alienation. Her work has been presented in performance, visual art, and research-oriented contexts, recently including Solyanka VPA State Gallery, Moscow (2018), Northwestern University, USA (2018), Port Sevkabel, St. Petersburg (2018), Blueproject Foundation, Barcelona (2017), Museum of Nonconformist Art, St. Petersburg (2017), Seoul Museum (2016), Clervaux Cité de l’Image, Luxembourg (2016), and Incheon Art Platform (2016). She is currently a PhD candidate in Philosophy, Art and Critical Thought under the supervision of Alenka Zupanćić at European Graduate School (CH). She is based in Berlin.
