Young and old, noting else ever. What happened here? Slower than…

The slow abrogation of the… is a new performance by Frank Wasser. Two subjects displaced by their own constructed subjectivity confront the objectivity of time and architecture through a dialogue of slow choreography, listening and an acknowledgment of a failed common language. The subjects directly address the act of being observed in a place of historical observation, the exhibition.

This event has been commissioned for Survey.

It is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite.
