"F*** Me I love You" Dance Performance in the Contemporary Berlin

‘This city is not place for love. The people are too fragile to be genuine, too shrewd to be open. One becomes accustomed to immerse oneself in so many vain interests and ultimately lose sight of what is real’. Heinrich von Kleist, 1800. The performance runs around interactions, connections, sexual appeal and approaches but most of all about commitment today in big, cosmopolitan, western cities where the possibility of having it all is so tangible and possible to displace focused intentions and driven desires.

The World According to Leonardo

To celebrate the anniversary of his death, ArtDependence will write a series of stories aimed at understanding the worldview of the man considered to be history’s greatest artist and one of its brightest minds. Only in the process of grasping his vision of the universe we begin to understand how he managed to almost recreate the mystery of life in his paintings; conceive of objects way beyond the technical capacities of his time like knight robots, parachutes, and self-propelling carts; and compile an encyclopedia of knowledge that reflects on the various dimensions of existence.
