Cally Spooner (UK, 1983) returns to Cabaret Voltaire with one of her most distinctive works, Warm Up (2016). The work consists of a female figure occupying different areas throughout the space, maintaining a constant negotiation between rehearsal and a never-to-be realized presentation. Performed in Zurich by Ilaria Genovesio

Italian artist Simone Bertuzzi (IT, 1982), from acclaimed duo Invernomuto, will take the main floor with his solo musical project Palm Wine. Setting the tone of the evening with a sound intervention followed by a live dj-set.

Emphasizing the need for care, maintenance and community, we are here to celebrate the space and what’s to come at Cabaret Voltaire.

Mexican artist Carlos Amorales created a series of gouaches entitled "Learn to Fuck Yourself" that transform all of the medieval building in which Cabaret Voltaire is located into a performative installation. To commemorate this series, we have produced a Special Limited Edition of "Learn to Fuck Yourself" Absinthe.

Mexican designer Ivan Martinez designed 100 bottles each with a different numbered label and with different drawings from Amorales gouaches on it.

Performance / Concert by Chino Amobi (US)

Curated by Philipp Cron (CH)

Born to Nigerian parents and based in Virginia, USA, Chino Amobi – alongside his counterparts, Congolese-Belgian, Nkisi, and Portuguese-South African, Angel Ho – forms NON: a collective of African artists, and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power.

Key releases include the critically acclaimed full length debut Paradiso, the follow up from the vital Airport Music for Black Folk, which presented a radical perspective on contemporary electronic music, and impressions of the airport as an international space and yet a totally Eurocentric & Western manicured experience; and the Izlamic Europe collaboration with Rabit. Amobi weaves music and politics in a way other artists of his generation didn’t and don’t dare, exemplifying his strengths in providing unified themes and subversive insight to the wider consciousness.

Recent presentations include Boiler Room MoMA New York, Knockdown Center New York, Berghain Berlin, CTM Festival Berlin, Unsound Krakov

«Pochi sanno quante donne ci sono in me.» (Few people know how many women there are in me)

Anaïs Nin

The words «Still» and «Leben» if united in a single word in German means «still life». By separating the two words, multiple meanings can be obtained: still life, to live in silence; quietness. Different meanings open up different possibilities that in some way reveal a fragile boundary between stillness, death and life. The portrait Parini portrays is in continouous movement of a woman faded by time, of a figure without boundaries that changes its forms and which is told through the irony and melancholy of a solitude that, sometimes or often, also keeps us company.

The Lecture by and Conversation with Gayatri Spivak is a new episode in the series “Great Thinkers” that started in December 2014 as a pilot at Cabaret Voltaire. “Great Thinkers” still follows its main idea: the search and yearn for great thinkers as inspirational and influential thinkers. The guests invited to the series Great Thinkers are anticipating answers to the questions that one might ask him- or herself today as regards the right choices – if there is such a thing as right - in and of life, politics, love, art and belief.

Gayatri Spivak is certainly one of the most inspirational und important thinkers of our times.

Can the Subaltern Speak?, an essay first delivered in 1983, established Spivak among the ranks of feminists who consider history, geography, and class when thinking about women. In all her work, Spivak’s main effort has been to try to find ways of accessing the subjectivity of those who are being investigated. She is hailed as a critic who has feminized and globalized the philosophy of deconstruction, considering the position of the subaltern, a word used by Antonio Gramsci as describing ungeneralizable fringe groups of society who lack access to citizenship. Since then Spivak is not only a pioneer in literary theory in non-Western women, she also plays and immense and influential role in feminist, political, ethical, educational and post-colonial theories.

«Great Thinkers» has a simple set-up: The invited guest philosopher talks about a topic, discusses a question that he/she can chose. What concerns him/her most? What does he/she consider to be his/her greatest intellectual achievement? How does he/she develop a thought, an argument and a theory? After his/her lecture we have the possibility to talk and discuss with him/her on his/her thesis and thoughts.
