About the performance

After the Maestro
Tom Kemp (NL/GB)
Durational performance
Saturday august 28, 3.30 pm

After the Maestro is a tabletop roleplaying game set within an ‘anthropomorphised anatomy’ – a depiction of the inner human body as a vast industrialised city, sustained by microscopic workers analogous to cells and microbes. Players take on the role of groups of labourers during the aftermath of a successful emancipation within the inner body, where the ‘Maestro’, or organising, vital force of the body, has been deposed.
Through collaborative storytelling and ludic mechanics, each session of the game generates a new narrative of anatomical and social re-organisation, complicating and estranging common body-politic metaphors into an unpredictable tale of emancipatory body-horror.

Screening program curated by Àngels Miralda (NL/CAT)

The screening program, 4 Films About the Sun revolves around the notion of the sun being an astral body capable of causing blindness, revolution, daze, and points of no return. Including films by: Agnieszka Polska, Anton Vidokle, Bahar Noorizadeh, Wilhelm Sasnal.

Cosmic forces like the sun, the moon, volcanoes and geological layers organise life in many ways. They are materialised in plants, food and the rhythms of bodies, bricks and buildings. In the drum of the production line and our heartbeat, in the veins lining the underworld of our cities and our anxieties. They resonate through the rise and fall of the tides, our alcohol soaked conversations, our mediatic and our nervous systems. We live our lives between cosmic actors and comment threads. How do we relate to this erratic flow?

Gut Feeling wants to listen.

In association with the exhibition, there is a public program with artist talks, performances by Marijn Ottenhof (NL), David Excoffier (GB/CH), Ivan Cheng (NL/ AUS) & Kristoffer Zeiner (NL/NO) and Tom Kemp (NL/GB).

A screening program, HOT! Like the Corona of the Sun, curated by Angels Miralda Tena (NL/CAT) and a text by Zoénie Liwen Deng (NL/CN).
