GRIT #02 concept notes

1 09 2008

Proposed for book launch presentation at The MAK (Museum fuer Angewandte Kunst / Museum for Applied Arts), Vienna, 21 October 2008. Commissioned by KunstRadio.

GRIT #02 – Illusions of Homogeneity / Illusionen von Homogenität

Performance for solo voice, oral microphone, hard curve saturation and open licensed visuals.

Homogeneity means “being similar throughout”. What homogeneity brings to societies is an illusion. Sameness is celebrated. Difference is discarded. It is a monoculture, a folly. Sameness will be our undoing.

hi andrew!

Homogeneity means “being similar throughout”. What homogeneity brings to societies is an illusion. Sameness is celebrated. Difference is discarded. It is a monoculture, a folly. Sameness will be our undoing.

A thought like a sword, cutting through the illusion of all the oh so diverse youth cultures, to the bone of everybody is just a customer?
or just my thought using your words?

cheers
d.

ps: thought you will be in graz in oktober.

It cuts through and cuts up all cultures, youth or otherwise. No one is immune… those that are, are very few indeed.

I will be in Graz, but in Vienna for this event at The MAK, then back the following day. This event has only recently come about. I’m assuming I’ll be in Vienna again in November to work on a piece for KunstRadio unless they opt for my use of the ORF studio in Graz.

Either way, I will be in Austria, mostly Graz, for 3 months from 1 October…
