Alter's (1980) work emanates from a critical observation of western society and its contemporary modus operandi. With human history being conceived as nothing but the "register of the crimes follies and misfortunes of mankind" as Voltaire had put it, Alter attempts to act in as remote manner as possible from what he identifies as the prevailing
elements of that modus operandi which seems to elicit the same old follies only with ever
developing technology.
He is going to talk about his project 'FRANZ MÜLLER'S WIRE SPRING', a short story of Kurt Schwitters that he translated and adapted to a theater play.
The Body Mapping Lab project focuses on the design of workshops and residency programs based on the methodologies and notions of site specificity, performance as research and community practice.
