Book Launch of Another Hole / Sara Gebran
28 January 2019
Book launch, Panel discussion & Choreographing and Performing a book
The last one and a half year I been writing a book to launch this night. The evening consist of 3 parts: A remediation of the book into a short performance, using the pages of the book as a script or a tarot card reading, includes fragments from the premier “A land where no dragons hide – and I want bright shivering lights in it”, followed by a large panel to discuss the book. And mingle time to buy the book at a discount price, with a drink. (Bring cash to buy the book).
"Another Hole" is an investigation of the relation between power and pornography. A combo of personal notes, lyrical writings, an art object, text as essays and images as visual essays, on political thoughts, to dig into the relations between state power and individual erotic desires and an art object. It re-thinks the language utilized for pornography, taking it from the practices of individuals, to the practices of dominant corporate power that pierces through bodies and minds of people without their consent. Beyond cultural and political thoughts, the book is a choreographic and artistic platform that offers further potential for moving practices, for playing, and for sustaining happiness.
The Panel discussion: A large panel of international and national artists, art workers and researchers will discuss the book through their experience of reading the book and the notion of self-instituting by posing Sara 1-2 questions, they are: Jennifer lacey, Katrine Dirckinck Holmfeld, Tina Tarpgaard, Anders Paulin, Maria Stiernborg, Cecilie Ullerup, Karen Vedel, Marie louise Stentebjerg, Sebastian Kahr Rasmussen, Wilfred Wagner, Mathias Kryger, Hugo Hopping and a few more to be confirmed
