imagetanz 2014

“When you care, you use your attention, your intelligence, your awareness. No bullshit, no money, no magic, no cowardice.”
Sarah Vanhee

The 2014 edition of imagetanz delves into one of our core human competences: care! With the double-edged motto “Who cares?” imagetanz presents radical and playful positions from local and international artists, traversing personal and public issues, sociopolitical and artistic questions.
While Vienna tops the charts in worldwide surveys of health care and social services, providing its citizens with universal care, the artists of the festival expose the system’s loopholes and parallel universes exploring the social and performative dynamics of the interpersonal. Using the focus on care as its compass, imagetanz navigates the troubled waters of the present-day and searches the horizon for possible futures. It cross-examines existing strategies of care against the backdrop of increasingly precarious living and working conditions: uncovering shadowy dealings in elderly care and confronting us with the challenges of social inclusion and equal rights for everyone. The notion of “everyone” is crucial to the festival, as artists set out on a quest outside the art institution to test the hypothesis of a Lecture For Every One, spreading thoughts about living together at meetings and assemblies around the city like a friendly virus. They call for a basic income dance  to advocate the unconditional redistribution of economic resources between members of society. In a search for new dimensions of tactile interpersonal relationships and empathic practices, imagetanz experiments with nanopolitics at the intersection of politics and performativity and a desire for psychic solidarity.
Linking practices of care to the artistic context, the festival explores the exchange between performer and public, playfully shuffling roles and dynamics and focusing on expectations and desires. But in the end, who cares for the artists?

After the longstanding curatorship of Bettina Kogler, this year’s imagetanz Festival is the first curated by Katalin Erdödi, who took over the artistic direction of the festival in April 2013.
