Malinowki – Lecture performance

The lecture-performance Malinowski explores the conjunction of science and art and moments in which they conflict. Explaining the anthropologist´s developed method of „participant observation“ to the audience the activities he did with his investigated subjects are executed in interaction with the audience: to observe, to interact, trying to become one of them. Due to the simultaneity of performing and narrating the situation towards the audience mingles a tropical fieldwork setting with the studio in which the audience members transform into the investigated „other“ and reverses/ interrogates the theater understanding of viewing directions.
