Hello Silence Status#3:
ELEVATE THE BALL SO IT NEVER DROPS AGAIN
A lecture by Winston Szeto Chmielinski
Thursday, 21st of June, 8pm
A collaborative discussion on success and* irrelevance, false intuition and* genuine cravings, effort as ease spelled backwards**, and bodily resistance vs. cash flow. Because of our nature, there will be breathing throughout.
*and means and, as in taken together, not opposed
**this is impossible to do unless you’re an alchemist. Thankfully we all are.
Winston Chmielinski (b. 1988, USA) is an artist based in Berlin. His recent projects include the Antarctic Pavillion at the 2017 Venice Bienniale, research and storyboarding with Ai Weiwei on his feature film, "Human Flow," and performances with Donna Huanca, Jonathan Vandyke, and the Sinai Orchestral Theater, among others. In January 2018, Chmielinski canceled everything and moved his studio back home, to see what art-making--a little distanced from the Art World--would bring up. This talk is a short experiment in format, to expand the monologue back into dialogue.
HELLO SILENCE is a series of lectures and events that addresses the relation between arts and gentrification.
