«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.

Performance by Leo Hofmann (CH) and Filomena Krause (DE)

Curated by Philipp Cron (CH)

Der Komponist und Sound-Künstler Leo Hofman untersucht in seiner Performance im Cabaret Voltaire das Spannungsfeld von medialer Fixierung und Flüchtigkeit. Zartbittere Electronica trifft auf brüllenden Shoegaze, kurze Song-Fragmente auf melodramatische Filmmusik ohne Film. Seine Instrumente sind grosse und kleine Lautsprecher, selbstentwickelte Controller und gestische Sensoren. Durch seine manische Affinität für Stimmen – die zuweilen hochpoliert und manchmal nackt und brüchig erklingen – finden sich Elemente in einer einzigen Welt zusammen.

Performance by Christodoulos Panayiotou (CY), performed by dancer Jean Capeille (FR)

Duration: 2 h 15 min
Curated by Michelangelo Miccolis (IT)

Christodoulos Panayiotou’s Lecture-Performance «Dying On Stage» widmet sich der unmöglichen Darstellung von Tod im Theater. Als Ausgangspunkt dient Rudolf Nureyevs Choreographie des Balletts «La Bayadère» von 1992. Diese Aufführung war der letzte öffentliche Auftritt von Nureyev, bevor er einige Monate später starb. «Dying On Stage» erkundet verschiedene buchstäbliche, metaphorische und symbolische Tode, indem die vertrackte Beziehung zwischen Zuschauer/in, Darsteller/in und den Rollen selbst in der Handlung gefangen sind.Präsentationen (Auswahl): Stromboli Volcano Extravaganza (2015); Serpentine Gallery, London; Performa 15, New York; Onassis Foundation, Athen; CND (Centre National de la Dance).
