bodies resituated experiments with the intersection of architecture and moving bodies. The rough and huge exhibition space on the 8th floor of the Gefechtsturm in the MAK-Gegenwartskunstdepot contrasts with the detailed and fragile performances of Doris Stelzer. In collaboration with the performers Lieve De Pourcq, Gabriel Schenker and the musician Werner Möbius, performative segments of Stelzer’s works will be separated from their usual stage-setting and are newly situated in the exhibition space. Thus moving sculptural images evoke new perspectives and interpretations.

Doris Stelzer’s work (choreographer and biotechnologist) focuses on the representation of bodies and their appearance in different media. Stereotypes and attributed roles are analyzed, questioned and transformed into movement-statements. For the MAK NITE these movements will be de- and re-contextualised in a new setting.
bodies resituated is based on the dance-performances shifted views and views in process that deal with male and female clichés. shifted views, the performance with the blue shoe, was premiered at the ImPulsTanz-festival in 2007. views in process was developed and performed during a residency at K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie / Tanzplan Hamburg at Kampnagel Hamburg in 2008.
