RE PE RA
Humboldt Forum Berlin
NUANS collaborates with @pereraelsewhere for her live show for #durchlueften @humboldtforum. In this performance, the visual cosmos of Elsewhere reacts to the history of the venue. The Humboldt Forum holds within the Ethnologisches Museum some important cultural assets that do not belong there. The institution and architecture have been discussed extremely controversial, as have the golden cross and the banner attached to the dome.
The production RE PE RA deals with this critisism by means of the return of cultural objects. The basic structure for the new video work is provided by a typographic letter bingo with the syllables PE RE RA; the RE in particular plays an important role here, since it is at the same time the prefix of various verbs that express a return or a return.
REACT, REFUSE, RETURN
