In the heart of the second episode of Flutgraben Performances 2020 there were ten encounters for single visitors. Each of the participating artists developed a trajectory into his*her artistic universe and shared it with an audience member. The meetings took place on various locations indoor and outdoor: visitors were taken on different kinds of walks by Christina Ciupke, Milla Koistinen, Sergiu Matis; they went on a boat trip by Clément Layes, and on a cab ride by Moritz Majce; they sat in environments – under an oak tree, invited by Jared Gradinger and in an installation by Sandra Man on a balcony that used to be the German-German border; they spent time in a kitchen talking with Asaf Aharonson and in studios with Stella Geppert and Jasna L. Vinovrški. Jefta van Dinther and Ixchel Mendoza gave insights into their future works.
In the main hall of Flutgraben there was an exhibition of drawings created by the Flutgraben artists group under the guidance of Stella Geppert, together with the presentation of an object inspired by Wilhelm Reich´s Orgon Accumulator and built by the group members under the direction of Moritz Majce, as well as a documentation of the ongoing talk series “What Makes an Artist?” by the group, initiated by Sandra Man. After a group dance choreographed by Milla Koistinen, there was the dinner performance by Asaf Aharonson for all guests.
