How does pathos manifest itself within the body? How can emotive body images be produced, how can they be undermined and overlaid with new images and movements?

Newly emerging manners of speech and performance indicate that grand gestures are back, or maybe they never left. Today, pathos seems to have political power (again). With their new production HYPERBODIES, bücking&kröger investigate these phenomena of pathos, grandiosity and exaggeration. Their focus lies on the body as a mirror of current problems: motifs of swelling and mannerist images of moving bodies, characterised by grotesque ornamentation and distorted proportions, give rise to the reconfigured, bent and overburdened bodies on stage: hyperbodies. These are transformed, gradually spilling out of their confines and dissolving into oversized, swollen shapes that reveal their powerfully compelling force while being exposed within it. These emotive images fluctuate between solemnity and humour, breaking open and subverting their structure.

Unveiling French Colonial History

with Jan Mammey and Falk Messerschmidt

Opening 01.02.2019, 19 h

Palais de la Porte Dorée
Hall Marie Curie
293, avenue Daumesnil
75012 Paris

The artists Jan Mammey, Falk Messerschmidt and Fabian Reimann addressed French colonial History by leading a photographic investigation on the remnants still visible today in Paris and in France. Since 2016 an inventory listing numerous places has been set up, more than 2000 photographies have been taken. A selection of these images, as well as texts assembled by the artists, are projected on the Palais’ original furniture, in use during the 1931 Paris International Colonial Exhibition. On this occasion, showcases, libraries and easels have been taken out out the Palais’ deposits.

The exhibition takes its name from a famous documentary movie by Alain Resnais and Chris Marker. Released in 1953, the movie has been banned until 1964, because of its denunciation of colonialism.

Curated by Katharina Scriba (Goethe-Institut Paris) and Stéphane Malfettes (Palais de la Porte Dorée).

Within the festival „L’envers du décor“ in the Palais de la Porte Dorée
