Performance. Mit allen Sinnen / Andy Kassier

›Painting for Paradise‹

Hinweis: Verschoben von Sa 18 SEP, 14—20 Uhr auf So 19 SEP 14—20 Uhr.

Mit der 5-teiligen Performance-Reihe erkunden wir als Berlin Art Week den ›BAW Garten‹ am Kindl—Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst. Das umfangreiche Vermittlungs- und Veranstaltungsprogramm und auch dieser Treffpunkt während der Festivalwoche sind ein Novum. Das performative Moment wollen wir nutzen, um den Ort zu ertasten und zu erkunden, ihn räumlich, klanglich, körperlich und visuell einzunehmen.

Andy Kassier zu Gast im ›BAW Garten‹

 

The conceptual artist Andy Kassier (*1989) lives and works in Berlin. His work includes installations, performances, photography, videos, sculptures and painting. In 2018, he graduated with distinction from the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, where he studied with Mischa Kuball and Johannes Wohnseifer, among others. 

In 2013 he created his alter ego Andy Kassier, who ironically breaks the narrative of wealth and happiness in late capitalist society. On Instagram and in international solo and group exhibitions he continuously develops the long-term performance. Kassier observes phenomena in social media and the development of digital image cultures. Based on his findings, he searches in his artistic work for answers to current socially relevant questions: What is happiness? (›the science of happiness‹ , Pop; 68, Cologne, 2016) How do I become successful? (›On the Internet, Nobody Knows You're a Performance Artist. Andy Kassier and Signe Pierce‹, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, 2018) How is masculinity represented? (›How To Take A Selfie‹ , Goethe-Zentrum Baku, Azerbaijan, 2019) How do I accept myself? (›Link in Bio. Art after social media‹ , Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig, 2019/2020) What is the role of the artist in the digital age? (›palm down‹ , HANZ.studio, Gallery Weekend Berlin, 2020)
