Streets, squares, parks, supermarkets, websites, and many other locations have become home to the stage of urban life that allows us to display our everyday actions and behaviors. As such, they have in turn become a topic for the artist.
“The World as a Stage” uses the increasing tendency towards lifestyle theatre as an opportunity to confront the viewer with an alternative life model, and to show how existing forms of self-staging can be reinterpreted in an emancipative manner.
In their work, the participating artists work with art, media staging, and real life. The exhibition is a combination of performances, video, and photography, and also stages virtual and architectural platforms challenging existing conventions of the theatrical.
