Choreographed by the other
How do we relate to the other, stigmatized by and excluded of society? By positioning the other outside of our common social playground we try to banish their significant features as phenomena also from inside ourselves. Based on intense encounters with several patients during her residency period in a psychiatric institution Nina Glockner creates a score of actions linked to a specific set of objects: A research on the communicating potential of a performative practice to establish a dialogue with the other will be captured in movement, words and images.
Nina Glockner lives and works as a performance artist in Amsterdam. She studied philosophy (in Germany) and Fine Arts at Academie Minerva Groningen and MA at the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam. Her performances and performative installations were shown in various places inside and outside the Netherlands.
