SUMMARY: The content discusses the concept of legacy in the context of performance art. The speaker believes that their own legacy in performance art may not have been created yet, and that it is ultimately determined by others. They emphasize the importance of reperformance and training young performers to create transformative experiences for the audience. The speaker also discusses the limitations of other art forms, such as photography and , compared to the living form of art that is performance. They express their initial rejection of reperformance but later recognize its acceptance in the art world. The speaker promotes the idea of integrating the audience into the performance and creating a supportive community around it.

”Performance art is a living form of art.” – Marina Abramović

After 30 years, the legendary performance artists Marina Abramović and the late Ulay agreed to come together, for the first time on camera, for a raw, honest, and unfiltered conversation about their art, life, and legacy. Among the things they discuss are the resurrection of performance art and the concept of re-performing past pieces.

Marina Abramović and Ulay reflect on the practical aspects and challenges of re-performing their iconic works, shedding light on the evolving landscape of performance art.

When confronted with the question of who could effectively re-perform their pieces, Ulay initially rejected the idea of re-performing his pieces. He recalls: “At one stage, you called me, and you said, ‘Listen, I want to re-perform three or four of our former pieces, which can be you?' Do you remember what I said? 'Me, I would have done it. I would have done it without restrictions or regret.' And then you said, 'No, no, no, no.'”

Despite Ulay's reservations, Marina Abramović and Ulay's performance pieces have been re-performed in several institutions, including MoMA in New York and Louisiana Museum in Denmark.

Reflecting on the live-ness as the core of performance art, Marina Abramović makes a statement about how the performer heavily influences the piece:

“Re -performance is like performing a good Bach: you can have a lousy guy who performs a Bach that is so terrible, you just want to sleep, or you can have an amazing charismatic performer who gives you something new because he's giving his own input into this work. It's the same with young performers. They have to be trained, they have to be handled well, and when they really perform, if they have this charisma, it's a transformative experience.”

The video is an excerpt from the Louisiana Channel documentary ‘No Predicted End': https://youtu.be/9OnmjKWPEjQ

Ulay (Frank Uwe Laysiepen, b.1943 – d.2020) was a German artist, who was based in Amsterdam, Holland, and Ljubljana, Slovenia. Ulay received international recognition for his work as a photographer, mainly in Polaroid, from the late 1960s, and later as a performance artist, including his collaborative performances with Marina Abramović from 1976 to 1988. His work has continuously dealt with politics, identity, and gender. In 2016 Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany, held the first major retrospective show of his work ‘Ulay Life-Sized.' In 2020 the Stedelijk Museum held the largest-ever, and first international post-humous, retrospective exhibition of his work ‘Ulay Was Here.' Marina

Abramović (b. 1946) was born in Belgrade, former Yugoslavia, and is now based in New York. She began her work as a performance artist in the early 1970s and is now regarded as one of the most important artists in the field. Her work explores the relationship between the performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind. Her retrospective ‘The Artist is Present' at MoMA, New York, in 2010 gave her a wide international breakthrough. In 2017 the retrospective exhibition ‘The Cleaner' was shown at Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark, among other places in Europe. Marina Abramović is set to have a major exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, the first-ever UK exhibition spanning her life's work.

Marina Abramović and Ulay were interviewed by Kasper Bech Dyg in upstate New York at Marina Abramović's home over ten days in August 2018 for the film ‘No Predicted End.'

Architecture Changes Everything | Architect Tatiana Bilbao | Louisiana Channel

Published

on

www.youtube.com – – 2024-04-16 09:18:16

SUMMARY: This content discusses the concept of remote work and its increasing popularity due to advancements in technology, flexible work arrangements, and companies' focus on work-life balance. It highlights the benefits of remote work, such as improved productivity, reduced commuting time, and cost savings for both employees and employers. Additionally, it emphasizes the importance of effective communication, collaboration tools, and a well-defined work schedule to ensure success in remote work. The content also addresses common challenges faced by remote workers, including isolation, distractions, and the need for self-discipline. Overall, the article emphasizes the opportunities and challenges associated with remote work in today's evolving work landscape.

“The way we consume carbon, the way we use capital, the way we use power is embedded in the form of our cities.”

We met with Tatjana Bilbao, one of the forerunners of contemporary architecture from Mexico, to discuss the challenges that architecture and architects face today.

“How can we create architecture that becomes a platform for anyone to create their own existence?”

“Architecture is about protection and inspiration. It provides the shelter needed, but not only that. We humans need to be challenged and inspired to grow.”

“Architecture that does that will change everything. Today's cities are built for production. The house for the productive human being – a place of rest for the person who has to be healthy, fed, clean to go to work and produce. The stones embed all of this.”

Tatiana Bilbao (b. 1972) is a Mexican architect. To her, the landscape plays a crucial role, and she works with it on various scales—from the Mexican countryside through urban scenes to the ‘internal landscape' of the individual building. In 2004, she founded Tatiana Bilbao ESTUDIO in Mexico City. At the core of the studio's practice is an analysis of the context surrounding projects, which range from masterplans to affordable housing typologies.

The studio's architectural work includes ESTOA, an institutional building on the UDEM campus that has received the special CEMEX Award in 2021. The Culiacán Botanical Garden, the Pilgrimage Route in Jalisco, a social housing prototype displayed at the 2015 Chicago Biennial that costs under USD 8,000, three buildings of housing in Lyon la Confluence, a research center of the Sea of Cortez on Mazatlan, and more recently the Mexican American Cultural in Austin Texas, and a Masterplan for the National Park La Huasteca.

In 2019, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio was the architecture firm in the Architect's Studio series of exhibitions hosted by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. The studio has had work featured in the Graham Foundation, Chicago Architecture Biennial, Venice Biennale, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, Museo Amparo, T-Space Gallery, and Centre Pompidou, to name a few.
Bilbao holds a recurring teaching position at Yale University School of Architecture and has taught at Harvard University GSD, AA Association in London, Columbia University GSAPP, Rice University, University of Andrés Bello in Chile, and Peter Behrens School of Arts at HS Dusseldorf in Germany. Her work has been published in The New York Times, A + U, and Domus. Bilbao is the recipient of prestigious awards, including the Kunstpreis Berlin in 2012, the UNESCO Global Award for Sustainable Architecture Prize in 2014, and the Impact Award 2017 Honorees for Architzier A + Awards. In 2021, Bilbao was the Honorary Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), and in 2022 the AW Architect of the Year.

Tatiana Bilbao was interviewed by Marc-Christoph Wagner at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition (The Biennale Architettura 2023) in Venice, Italy. The interview took place in May 2023.

“I write a few chapters, I let them marinate.” Argentinian writer Pola Oloixarac on her process of writing.

“Don't be afraid to be wrong, just write as much as you can, put it away and let it marinate, that's very important.”

Pola Oloixarac expresses the value of belonging to a community of writers, the exchange of feedback, and understanding each other's creative process. “It's these communities that give birth to trends and cultural movements.”

She explains that she always writes on several things at once and organizes her thoughts into various folders on her computer. “I'm also working on an essay on Borges—Borges as a troll. I love it. That one has been marinating for a while.” She laughs and adds that some texts need an advanced kind of marinating.

Pola Oloixarac was interviewed by Peter Adolphsen at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark in connection to the Louisiana Literature festival in August 2022.

Emmy Russell Finds Her Voice | Biscuits & Jam | Season 5 | Episode 7

Published

on

www.youtube.com – – 2024-04-09 11:00:03

SUMMARY: This content is about the importance of empathy and understanding in our society. It highlights the need for individuals to listen to and validate the experiences and emotions of others, cultivating empathy and compassion. The article emphasizes that empathy allows us to build strong connections with others, bridge divides, and promote positive change, while also urging people to step out of their comfort zones and actively seek out diverse perspectives. It concludes by emphasizing that empathy is a powerful tool for creating a more inclusive, understanding, and harmonious world.

Emmy Russell was born in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, and grew up touring and performing with her grandmother, Loretta Lynn, as well as her mother, Patsy Lynn. She doesn't sound much like the “Queen of Country,” but Emmy has a beautiful voice and plenty of talent as a songwriter. On an episode of American Idol earlier this spring, she wowed the judges with an intensely personal song that caught the country's attention—and earned her a ticket to Hollywood. It's called “Skinny,” and it touches on her past struggles with an eating disorder, as well as a deep lack of confidence that's kept her off the stage. Now Emmy is finding her own voice and looking at a bright future in music.

Emmy talks to Sid about why she had to take a break from the family business for a few years, what Loretta taught her about songwriting, and the famous guitar she gave her at the age of 15.
