Mies van der Rohe was the master of using the fewest possible elements to define a space. The result was the maximum effect with the minimum number of spatial concepts, creating domestic arenas and interior circulation. These trends from high modernism remain rarely changed today.
The animated structures presented by this work are copies of representative elements of the Neue Nationalgalerie. The architectural details, free from their function, will wander around the building as if they could finally feel and move. Skin and Bones narrates a fictional present in which the architect can no longer control his own design.
The performance will take place throughout the festival, without a specific schedule.
