Artúr van Balen (1983) is a visual artist, curator and educator with a focus on spatial and performative interventions in public space. Since 2012 he leads TOOLS FOR ACTION, an artist group and collaborative platform on the intesection between art and activism. He develops open source tools and realizes collective interventions. In 2016 he realized the project Mirror Barricade (2016) in collaboration with Theater Dortmund, 14 schools and the city of Dortmund. In this project an 80 meter long, three meter high inflatable barricade was built collectively and he led choreographic direct action training with more than 200 participants to take a stand against a neo-Nazi demonstration. In 2017, TOOLS FOR ACTION and the Theater Dortmund received the art education award from the German Ministry of Culture and Media for this. (BKM Preis kulturelle Bildung, 2017)
In Signals, Resonating Revolutions (2018), he developed together with Tomás Espinosa, a participatory performance with 80 light sculptures, which were worn by the participants and made emergent forms of self-organization possible. It was in collaboration with Kulturprojekte Berlin to commemorate the German Revolution of 1918|19. For RÆV Rehearsal he develops the concept together with Floor van Leeuwen and is responsible for the infrastructure of the assembly. In collaboration with Roberto Perez Gayo he designs the different Tools.

Projektinfo

RÆV REHEARSAL is a collaborative project between Artúr van Balen | TOOLS FOR ACTION and choreographer Floor van Leeuwen. The starting point for RÆV REHEARSAL is the question of assembly. Can we develop new forms of assembly, also in times of COVID-19? RÆV REHEARSAL proposes a playful exercise in future forms of manifestation, based on swarm principles. During the residency we will research swarm behaviour and make little tests with a distributed speaker system in public space. Can we move as a swarm of dancing bodies through the city? And can we design tools for manifestation, based on swarm principles?
