An Installation with a 100 Experts by Hannah Hurtzig

The BLACKMARKET defines itself as interdisciplinary research on learning and un-learning, knowledge and non-knowledge. The BLACKMARKET is a temporary show and production room installation by the Mobile Academy, in which the narrative formats of knowledge transfer are tried and presented. At 100 single tables, experts from the dance and neighboring fields sit and offer a portion of their knowledge, which can be explained and learned in 30 minutes. Visitors can simultaneously listen in to select conversations via headphones. The Congress visitors (in this case more customers and clients) have the chance of choosing between 240 half-hour offers by the knowledge dealers. The knowledge transfer is understood as a communicative and performative act, which, on the opening night of the Dance Congress, will become a collectively whispered story of knowledge, while simultaneously charting the current position of theory and experience on the subject of dance.

The model of this installation is concerned with the presentation and communication of knowledge/information. Common places of knowledge transfer are imitated such as the archive and the reading room and combined with communication situations similar to those found in the marketplace, at stock market and in consultancy and service conversations. Blackmarkets have been held in Hamburg, Berlin and Warsaw on various subjects.

Dance Congress Germany
The Federal Cultural Foundation (Kulturstiftung des Bundes) will be hosting the Dance Congress Germany, in cooperation with the House of World Cultures, from the 20th to 23rd of April 2006 in Berlin. In accordance with its historical predecessor, the Dance Congress is the first forum of its size for and with dance makers, since the days of the Weimar Republic. The meeting brings together professionals from the fields of dance, choreography, pedagogy, criticism, production and cultural politics. Over 100 leading speakers from theory and practice will take up practice relevant and future-oriented themes and bring them up for discussion in lectures, talks, workgroups, lecture-demonstrations and study sessions. In addition, an extensive program surrounding the Congress will take place at dance venues around Berlin.
