ESPIRAL: A Dance of Death

Austria, 2010 / 12’
Video programme proposed by Marina Gržinić

ESPIRAL: A Dance of Death, engages with the domineering intrusion of the Austrian banks that profoundly affected the transitional processes in East Europe, and operates on multiple levels: dance, aesthetics, language; capital expansion; Austria, Eastern Europe, South America. The video adopts and re-interprets the work of the German choreographer Kurt Jooss, inventor of political ballet in Germany during the Weimar Republic, and the rise of National Socialism. The work uses a text by Hannes Hofbauer on Austrian financial imperialism, in an attempt to de/link art, culture, capital, and thus the role of art in neoliberal capitalist societies. (Ivan Jurica)
