#DanceofUrgency Last years the club scene and politics are dancing together again. A question of what you dance for and why do you dance are being asked through, around and on dance floors. How can an experince from club resonate outside of the club? How do values of club resonate in club goers? What does the music festival or club stands for, besides economic interest? These are posters from @saturnalia_festival at @macaomilano Dance culture was always about expression of freedom and not limitations. Dance floors do shape and maintain political oppositions. Reclaiming space, reclaiming cities #ReclaimClubCulture#clubbing#rage#rave

The Rave-o-lution in March 2018 in front of the Georgian Parliament in Tbilisi is one of the important points of the exhibition #DanceofUrgency. Human rights activist Paata Sabelashvili says he brought activism to dancefloors, which has proved to be "a very effective medium for mobilising a lot of people". Margit Mössmer interviewed him during his residency at Q21 in Vienna.

IT’S MURDER ON THE DANCEFLOOR: INCREDIBLE EXPRESSIONIST DANCE COSTUMES FROM THE 1920S Lavinia Schulz and Walter Holdt were a wife and husband partnership briefly famous in Germany during the early 1920s for their wild, expressionist dance performances consisting of “creeping, stamping, squatting, crouching, kneeling, arching, striding, lunging, leaping in mostly diagonal-spiraling patterns” across the stage. Shulz believed “art should be…an expression of struggle” and used dance to express “the violent struggle of a female body to achieve central, dominant control of the performance space and its emptiness.” In his book, Empire of Ecstasy—Nudity and Movement in German Body Culture, 1910–1935, author Karl Toepfer notes that “Husband-wife dance pairs are quite rare on the stage; in the case of Schulz and Holdt the concept of marriage entailed a peculiarly deep implication in that it also referred to a haunting marriage of dance and costume.” Source: www.dangerousminds.net #dancing#dance#costume#faceless#idancealone
