Magazin4 is proud to host the first European showing of Andrea Bowers's new video project entitled "Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Training", a piece that works both as a training video and a dance performance based on a seminar on techniques of passive resistance and actionist demonstration. In complement to this video, Bowers's sculpture "Defence of Necessity", a barrier made of a web of cloth referring to early 1980s feminist demonstrations, divides the exhibition room in two, "gently" obstructing parts of the space.
Curator: Judith Reichart
A publication in the "M4 -disjecta" series with an interview by Monica Bonvicini and Sam Durant and an essay by Susan Morgan is available.
