Bergen Assembly, our convener Saâdane Afif, and executive editor Yasmine d’O. are pleased to publish the seventh issue of Side Magazine, dedicated to the figure of an Acrobats.
Dear Acrobats, what kind of incredible figures are you going to unravel today before our stunned eyes?
Seven contributors shed light on this figure: Jörg Heiser takes us on an ever-twisting journey through the universal force of gravity; Anton Escher looks at how a group of Moroccan acrobats have been invited around the world to demonstrate their prowess, participating in the modern tradition of highly-skilled migration; Anri Sala and Tacita Dean contextualise Sala’s work A Spurious Emission (2007); Gerald Bär tells us how Fernando Pessoa used specific literary strategies to encourage the sense of strangeness in himself; Eran Schaerf brings to life his many inner voices, which inhabit the script of his performance Blinded in Remembering the Present? Ask Franz; and finally, curator Marcella Lista offers us a journey through La Ribot’s conceptual Distinguished Pieces series, with selected pages from the legendary choreographer’s notebooks published as facsimiles.
