UMPRUM, nám. Jana Palacha 80, Praha 1
The talk will be held in English
The Fine Art Department of UMPRUM cordially invites you to a public talk of Wojciech Kosma.
Wojciech Kosma is a performance artist. In his performances and web series (most notably Charisma, his collaboration with Sarah M. Harrison) he stages nuanced representations of personal relationships that carefully walk the line between private and public appearances, authenticity and fiction and—formally—between dance, theatre, and visual arts. Wojciech is a founding member of artist TV collective East London Cable and a free jazz duo Hope Scandal (with Hansol Kim).
Wojciech's performances were shown among others in Chisenhale Gallery in London, Transmission Gallery in Glasgow, Wysing Arts Centre, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions or Interstate Projects in New York. Charisma was funded by Kone Foundation and Volksbühne Berlin and is available online at charisma.watch
At Umprum Wojciech will present the documentation of some of his collaborative performances and discuss their production and conceptual frameworks as well as their future developments. The talk will also include a general Q&A about performance as a medium, its ethics and economy within the context of the visual arts.
