|Dora Garcia and Boudry & Lorenz at Venice Biennale / Art Basel 2011|
LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA
4 June - 27 November 2011
For the Spanish Pavilion in the Venice Bienniale 2011, Dora García created an "extended performance" project with the title L'inadeguato, Lo inadecuado, The inadequate.
The Inadequate is an extended performance, made of objects, conversations, monologues, theatre, silences and debate. The protagonists of this multiple, collective performance, are experts in the notion of 'inadequacy'. They represent independent, underground, dissident, unofficial, marginal and exiled positions. The performances will extend throughout the duration of the Biennale: from 1 June to end November.
On the website theinadequate.net you can follow the calendar for those objects, conversations, monologues, theatre, silences and debate. You can also download the publications corresponding to this research, Mad Marginal cahiers #1 & #2, and the performance guide. You can follow LIVE the unique, written documentation of this extended performance. And finally you can contribute to its on-line diary.
Curator of the Spanish pavilion is Katya García-Antón.

Ellen de Bruijne Projects presents a new work by Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz: No Future and No Past (both films 16 mm on HD, 15 min.)
These two film-installations are based on punk archives from the period between 1976 and 2031, investigating the radical negativity, the self destructiveness and the dystopia of these moments.
The title No Future quotes the punk movement's demand for 'no future' and thus the film takes up the paradoxical premise that we are already in the future, which-according to the temporal ultimatum issued by the punk movement would never come about. The second title No Past ironically demands an abolishment of the past, though the past is considered the basis of the human psyche but also of subjectivity and thus of the existence of human beings in general. No Future and No Past will push this reflection on the relationship between the past and future a little bit further, short-circuiting a linear, or evolutionary conception of time.
