Body cinema: Caffe Muller by Pina Bausch

May 16, 2010

If there is one artist who was  most frequently mentioned in interviews on Body Pixel, it has been certainly Pina Bausch. Caffe Muller (1978), her most intimate artwork mirrors her experiences in family’s cafe during post-war Germany period, where she spent many hours watching adults struggling to survive in a devastated society and post-war atmosphere.

Raimund Hoghe’s tiny little thingz

May 11, 2009

This year’s edition of Queer Zagreb Festival was enriched for different concepts and poetics… the performative aspect of the programme re-marked the position of second and third generation in queer subculture, like Raimund Hoghe, then Ivo Dimcev, Alain Buffard, new forces as Dominic Johnson,  Andre Masseno, Francois Haignaud & Cecilia Bangolea, etc.

In the year of 2009, I’m still enjoying watching video material of early artworkz by Pina Bausch. If there is a theater, besides Butoh, that yet makes me speechless, than we are talking on Bauch’s theatre…
