Breaking Character


A workshop in the context of the exhibition Antarctica. An Exhibition on Alienation with students of the Federal Schools of Kalvarienberg for Economy and Social Affairs, sponsored by KulturKontakt Austria.

The exhibition Antarctica (25/10 2018 – 17/2 2019) at Kunsthalle Wien formed the frame of reference for a series of workshops lasting several days with the performer and choreographer Deborah Hazler, and the art mediator Michaela Schmidlechner.

Inspired by the videos, art installations and photographic works of the exhibition, which dealt with the subject of alienation, the students were able to get to know different body and theater exercises. Movement, gesture, and language, served as material for improvised scenes and videos.
