“Performing Remains” – a discussion

June 1st at 6 p.m. in Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (Pańska 3) Rebecca Schneider will be our guest taking part in the discussion accopaining the work on Polish edition of her famous book “Performing Remains. Art nad war in times of theatrical reenactment”.  We will talk about reenactment, repetitions and returns of cultural memories and history. In times of fake news and post truth what is a place of performance? How ephemerality of performance can be seen as its antiarchival power of remaning and used in political fight? How to find youreslef in the time-out-of-joint in which history is actualizing itself in bodies and their gestures? We will also talk about Polish translation of the book asking Małogorzata Sugiera and Mateusz Borowski – translators, what is the meaning of Rebecca Schneider’s concepts for Polish public? How difficult it is to translate her book into Polish language and culture?


Meeting will be held in English.
