How can new forms of collaboration emerge when the structures, constellations, politics, economies and logics of collaboration are, in the best sense, well-rehearsed – in the negative sense: stuck?

The FFT questions its routines of hosting and curating and invites women artists to design and practice a different politics of invitation with us. First, we asked director Monika Gintersdorfer, who herself constantly questions power relations in the culture industry. Monika passed the invitation directly on to two younger artists: the Ivorian dancer and musician Annick Agbadou aka Annick Choco, and the Düsseldorf-based Spanish choreographer and performance artist Montserrat Gardó Castillo. All three will invite other artists* as part of POLITCS OF INVITATION. We are interested in what others would like to see on our stage and we are interested in the perspective of women artists on contemporary art and theater.

POLITICS OF INVITATION is a series of events that invites to interventions, performances, discussions, concerts and parties in the FFT.
