2019 will be the year of LANDSCAPE in Komuna Warszawa.
A year of landscape and landschaft, and paysage.
The year of landscape as a possible theatrical genre, performative and performed landscape. A year of multidisciplinary landscapes that will be invited by invited artists in the spaces of the Commune.
Imagine your landscape.
Is your landscape natural or not at all? Are you in it Do you rather look at him? Do you experience or describe? Or maybe you think about it quite differently?
The curator’s idiom of the year 2019 is « Landscape ». This slogan can be associated with many fields: humanities, social sciences, art as well as natural sciences. The purpose of such an idiom is therefore to inspire the creators of broadly understood performative arts to create multidisciplinary works that cross the boundaries of narrowly defined disciplines, works based on unobvious collaborations and associations. The idea of « landscape » has been outlined broadly – so as not to impose any perspective on artists, but to suggest a few basic starting points. The word « landscape » and its idea may refer to something existing (or perceived), but also to its representation. Hence, work on the « landscape » performance assumes creative negotiations between experience and representation (and reflection on the rules of representation). Landscape is also something perceived, so work on it also includes reflection on contemporary visibility and invisibility regimes. We also ask about the « naturalness » of the landscape, inscribing in important conversations about art in the age of anthropocene. The idea of « landscape » also refers to the trend of theoretical reflection that captures the space of theater (or more broadly: performative arts) as a kind of landscape art. We are inspired by visual arts that have long begun to discuss the idea of landscape. The goal of the curatorial year is to be the creation of works that will present the audience with a map of modern landscapes, implemented using various media and aesthetics.
