The performance ‘Vorspielurteil’ illustrates how real and imaginary interchange.
When I first arrived to Vienna, “duell in wien”, billboard of electoral campaign was a clear document of persistent prejudgments and racism that have not been eradicated yet. It was a futureless and ironic case of how democratic instruments of a society that has witnessed serious assimilation process visualizes 'camps' legally by means of this structure. My previous proposal 'Do you know who I am?' which I have submitted to MQ quartier 21 has materialized in a snap. But questioner has been changed and within this context it turned to me. A very clear response must be given.
Vor(ur)teil-spiel. Here begins word game! Game inside game!
The performance 'Vorspielurteil' was designed with real documents. For the reason that it has a circular form, in order to emphasize the concept, it was realized by using video, sound and text in Ovalhalle with the support of ZARA (Zivil Courage und Anti Rasismus Arbeit) and monochrom.
Performance has become a collaboration project between 'I' and 'the other' with contributions of Viennese artist Gue Schmidt’s by his text-reading and Suna Suner who was born in Istanbul and still lives in Vienna by her live voice improvization.
