The EDN Conference Inventur 2 took place at tanzhaus nrw from 1 to 3 June 2017 and analyzed the current situation within contemporary dance and performance, across genre boundaries and in a cross-sectorial manner.
An intense 3-day stock-taking exercise
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 are up for discussion.
The Conference was documented by Pia Bendfeld and by curator, researcher and writer Sandra Noeth. Their contributions can be found here.
