INVENTUR 2 wants to analyse the current situation of contemporary dance and the performing arts, across genre boundaries and in a cross-sectoral manner. 12 years after the first INVENTUR in Vienna in 2005 the field’s most prominent performers discuss central topics of the latest developments of contemporary dance and art, all the while taking in consideration the current political, ecological and economic crises. In nine panels, both the inventory as well as the inventory-taking itself will be up for discussion.
INVENTUR 2 stellt die derzeitige Situation innerhalb der zeitgenössischen Tanz- und Performancekunst sparten- und genreübergreifend auf den Prüfstand. 12 Jahre nach der ersten INVENTUR im Tanz im Jahr 2005 in Wien erörtern prominente Akteure des Feldes zentrale Fragestellungen der aktuellen Tanz- und Kunstentwicklung vor dem Hintergrund gegenwärtiger politischer, ökologischer und ökonomischer Krisen. In neun Panels steht sowohl das „Inventar“ als auch die „Inventur des Inventars“ zur Diskussion.
