María Salgado
De lengua. Three/Trois pièces, 2019

With what work I with? / work I with language since / I am a poet. These three works occur distinctly, depending on different verbal materials, to produce three outcomes of a dispute that express the idea that language is never the property of an individual, but rather a common (and therefore conflictual) possession, in which our desire, imagination, and transformation are materialized.
María Salgado (1984) is a poet, performer, and researcher. She has published five books of poetry in Spain and two in Argentina, and has performed in Germany, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, and in the United States. She is a member of the independent research group and poetry collective Seminario Euraca.

PPKK (Sarah Ancelle Schoenfeld and Louis-Philippe Scoufaras)

PPKK is an ad-hoc, nomadic laboratory founded in Berlin in 2016 by Sarah Ancelle Shoenfeld and Louis-Philippe Scoufaras. The duo has presented their work at the Schwules Museum (Berlin, 2017); Kunstverein Bärenzwinger (Berlin, 2017); Herkulessaal (Munich, 2017); Very Project Space (2018); Galerie Papillon (Paris, 2018); KS Room (Graz, 2019); and Haus am Lützowplatz (Berlin, 2019). For EMERGE, the duo will restage PPKK 04.00, a 2017 performance created in Munich for the exhibition-concert Mythology, Electricity and Music.
Louis-Philippe Scoufaras was born in Montréal and currently lives in Athens. Sarah Ancelle Schoenfeld was born in Berlin in 1979, and lives in Germany.

Protests Forms: Public Opinion Descends Upon the Demonstrators
Marinella Senatore

Marinella Senatore’s performances are characterized by music, dance, and other forms of physical expression, and seek to trigger awareness of the dialectic between the individual and society. How can an individual both integrate into, and emancipate themselves from, society? For EMERGE, Marinella Senatore has invited Butoh performer and dancer Paola Lattanzi. Butoh, which emerged in Japan following the devastation caused by the atomic bomb, is a form of dance that expresses powerful physical reactions against the annihilation of life, reminding us of the importance of renewal through a critical and resistant body.
Marinella Senatore (born in 1977) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is characterised by a strong collective and participatory spirit. Paola Lattanzi studied choreography at the Amsterdam University of the Arts, and trained in Butoh with the celebrated Japanese dancer Masaki Iwana.
