  1. Survival via Proxy is a contribution to a WhatsApp workshop curated by Tamar Clarke Brown and Bar Yerushalmi dealing with survival in the art world beyond art school as part of the Into the Wild programme at Chisenhale Studios.

    Our performance lecture utilised Hito Steyerl’s text The Terror of Total Dasein to reflect upon the precarious situation of art workers; their usually badly paid presence and how to employ the idea of a proxy, a decoy or surrogate, as a counter method. Simultaneously, we implement a practical application of this theoretical discourse. Leaving the posts of the pre-recorded performance to an automatic script, we are only present in form of a WhatsApp alias, whereas we are taking care of our own matters of survival going for a walk in the country side.
