analog manipjulääschen
/ ann cotten (usa/aut/ger) & hanno millesi (aut)


the title of this course is a quote from wolfgang bauer's play "change" where a simulation, intensification and, precisely, a manipulation of real processes of one's destiny takes place. the difference between intentional, mischief-directed intervention and the inherent dynamics of the matter soon cannot be nailed down anymore.

during the first two meetings (12 and 14 september) a starting point will be defined. we will find out what we hate and what we can rhyme it with or which precise authorities can be tackled. one cannot always just hate the police.

in a second step, we will begin with various new formations. afterwards, there will be a break for a couple of weeks during which the activities that were discussed are carried out and can flower..

the third meeting (28 november) is a kind of conclusion and we will prepare the presentation (planned for 29 november).
