Christian Falsnaes: The Lead

Part of Conditions of Political Choreography

The Lead is a performance focusing on authority,power,persuacsion,and different modes of addressing the other. The work is performed by visitors to the exhibition. A director guides each individual participant, working with their body language, voice, and general demeanor. Each performance is followed by a collective discussion about the effects on both performer and audience, and every visitor has the opportunity to both perform the work and experience it as a spectator. Facilitated by Maya Elran.

Christian Falsnaes (b.1980,Copenhagen,Denmark,lives in Berlin) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and his works have recently been shown at the Juan & Patricia Vergez Collection, Buenos Aires; Kunsthalle Wien; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; ZKM, Karlsruhe; and Manifesta 11, Zurich. In 2015 he was nominated for the Preis der Nationalgalerie in Berlin.
