We live in an age characterized by concepts and concepts such as "recovery", "rise", "growth", "development", "increase / increase", "improvement / modification", "Erlangen". This workshop wants to deal with the opposing point of view, namely that of "falling" - a theme which Bas Jan Ader (1942 - 1975) has already devoted to the direction and intensity of his work.

Bas Jan Ader is one of the most important conceptual, performance and video artists of the last century. Most of his artistic works were made within a few weeks. After that, the artist's track lost himself in the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean - on the road, sailing and searching for miracles. In his works, With the gravitation apart. He tries to investigate the behavior in the case by means of various ways of viewing. On the basis of video footage he presents the disarming poetic force that is released by this act.

What is "Fall"? What does "giving up" and "loss of control" mean to us? How to implement concepts in art? As part of the "Playing the Fool" series, organized by the Goethe-Institut Beijing and the Institute for Provocation, the Goethe-Institut Beijing will organize a workshop entitled "Falling Day" on 7 and 8 May . Together with the artists Alessandro Rolandi and Megumi Shimizu, the infinite possibilities of falling are explored with a performance.
