Groupshow brings together ten performers and fine artists who have already realised joint projects in various constellations. The lab focuses on the ambiguity of the term groupshow, group work versus group exhibition. Group works in dance are created from a central perspective and assembled into an “object”. In art exhibitions, primarily independent works are grouped around a common theme. The potential of dealing creatively with this ambiguity permits alternative approaches to the production of individual authorship within a shared working situation and the reverse. Groupshow aims at differentiation and at the same time proposes cooperation. Influencing and reacting to one another are necessary driving forces for a committed group process.
