Shaman goes to 1380 is an event by lumbung member Más Arte Más Acción. Cheap wood, infested with bark beetles, is shipped from Germany to China. In the performance Shaman goes to 1380, Andreas Pregler and the collective ARAGRUPN demonstrate this problem using infested logs. The piece draws on Joseph Beuys’ performance Show Your Wound and updates it with music from the Indonesian gamelan musician and composer Yudane.
Andreas Pregler works as a conceptual artist. In his videos, installations and performances, he explores the degree of order and intermixing. Embodied knowledge, embodied feelings and autoethnographic elements flow into his artistic research. In Kassel, he addresses dystopias and transformations in the Anthropocene.
Artists from all over the world came together in 2019 as the collective ARAGRUPN. It consists of sculptors, painters, conceptual artists, media artists, musicians, art educators and art therapists. Inter- and transdisciplinarity characterizes the open approach of the members.
Rosemarie Swingle, Sylvia Pregler, Katharina Berres and Christian Fischer will be present at documenta fifteen.
