Saas-Fee Open Mic

2017

Live performance, desk, chair, portable speaker, notes and drawings on paper

For Ohne Prickelnd Sanft as part of Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art

Spike Art Quarterly, Berlin, Germany

This project came about following a month-long study of art and cognitive capitalism with the Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art at the headquarters of Spike Art Quarterly, a bilingual contemporary art magazine published in Berlin. Flores opened the lecturn to students and community members to teach their own lessons and read poetry and share their notes from the month-long session. Author Joseph Rios video called in from Los Angeles to read his poem The Fellowship Application, which was amplified through the room by a microphone.
