The focus of this workshop is on scripting a dialog-based process through the agency of the play Marat/Sade by Peter Weiss. This process is structured as an open performative scenario within a precise framework. The material discussed over the course of the workshop day, at a specific “recollection” point within the process, is transcribed directly to the computer.
M/SOS works with the notion of “unfinished dialogs” structuring contemporary society and culture, and the role of the art institution in relation to that. haus.0 program initiated this workshop series as a methodological enquiry. M/SOS charts the double-bind and dynamic understood operating between the process of “institutionalization” and “institution”. The first stage came into focus with the 2001/2 program, as expressed by a set of projects that includes Halluzinationer, Peter Watkins La Commune and Ein Prozess.
M/SOS Workshop is conceived and led by Fareed Armaly.
