This long duration performance, consists of short individual performances, and
draws inspiration from Donna Haraway’s essay “A Cyborg Manifesto: Science,
Technology, and Socialist-feminism in the last twentieth Century”. Twenty-one
participants, who we will meet each other just a few hours before the event, have
been invited to creatively respond to Haraway’s notion of the ‘cyborg’ in relation to
the emergence of an imaginary entity that of the ‘bankorg’, an organism that has
been affected and deeply transformed by the current dominance of the banks on
multiple socio-political terrains.
The performance participants, mostly creative practitioners, fine and visual artists,
choreographers, film directors, art researchers, curators, art historians and
performers will deposit in the dinner table objects of their choice that symbolize
survival and/or resistance under the regime of the ‘bankorg’. A er the performance
the audience may participate by contributing to the dinner table their own choices
of objects. The performance event will be video recorded.
The event is part of the research project Performance Dinners organized by The
Subjectivity & Feminisms Research Group (S&F) of Chelsea College of Arts,
London. For the Performance Dinners No 8 in Athens, the S&F has invited the
artist/researcher Maria Paschalidou to select the theme of the project this year and
curate the related creative event in Athens.
