applied speculations within virtual and analog localities

International artists from the Translocal Performative Academy (TPA) are present in Brussels to unfold their space-related performative practices and negotiate their newly created virtual meeting platform for an ongoing interdisciplinary dialogue.

Since 2022 a transdisciplinary group of artists, who understand the origin of their practice as space-related and body-centered, meet once a month digitally to have a peer to peer exchange and art based research. Within this digital laboratory, they create every month a different virtual space with certain rules in order to seek methods for reflecting, exchanging experiences, and sharing perceptions beyond language and translocally. Through this digital object-oriented discourse within changing spatial relationships, the program generates new forms of knowledge. The artists based in Europe and Southeast Asia meet once a year in an analog setting. After the analog encounter in Vienna and Jakarta, they meet for the third time in Brussels.

TPA is a four-year research program (2022-2025) and was founded by Claudia Bosse and theatercombinat to negotiate possible relationships between bodies, materials, living beings, structures and spaces. It is about trans-cultural organizations as artistically resilient and networked structures and about new artistic ecologies, as life cells of our society. TPA aims to provide artists with a different view of their own work, in the sense of a ‘re-perspectivization’ that emerges in dialogue with colleagues working in other local contexts and with other artistic methods, between global South and global North, and local, analogue, digital, translocal and hybrid artistic articulations.

The third analog meeting in Brussels is made possible by theatercombinat in cooperation with ERG - Ecole de Recherche Graphique, Projection-Room and Dance Nucleus Singapore.
