A teaser (short version) from the first instalment of Art Club Ultra; work in progress, 2015, KhiO

"Art Club Ultra: work in progress"

Focuses on the accessibility of art both online and offline. Through the orchestration of a social event I arrange a scenography that includes live music, art practices and engagement. The performance incorporates the format of contemporary talk show and game show with our experiences of social media. Performing as the persona of host Franky D`miedo – invites, introduces and interviews self-thought or formally trained artists. The artists become participants. Through these interviews, a demystification of various artistic practices and a critique of contemporary social relations occur in real-time, in front of the audience. Social media adds a sense of depth to this performance, where the audience acts both as camera and broadcaster.
