Together with Mădălina Dan, Farid Fairuz and Manuel Pelmuş, Alexandra Pirici presents a mash-up of moments from the globalized memory of mass media in the empty halls of the Former Czechoslovakian Cultural Institute in Berlin. Without a stage, props or costumes the images are performed by bodies in everyday clothes in direct response to the audience who, by choosing from a list of possible scenarios, call the performers into action and set the rhythm of the compilation: Delicate Instruments Handled With Care!
The Forgotten Pioneer Movement (October 2nd – November 29th) is an interdisciplinary performance and exhibition project about the experiences of the last, transitional generation between socialism and post-socialism. As a fictional movement, TFPM addresses the impact and the societal perspectives of the “last pioneers”: a generation whose childhood and youth is linked to the times of the Perestroika and the “post-Western” Europe of the 1990s.
