Finissage: “WASCHKAUE : DIVIDING LINE” by Dorota Walentynowicz / Karolina Majewska-Güde

The research project "Waschkaue - dividing line” takes as a starting point the history of one of the buildings in the most industrialized region of Germany: Schacht 1/2/8 belonging to the Zeche Zollverein in Essen in the Ruhr area. Currently it is the choreography center of North Rhine Westphalia. The project relates the histories of the Waschkaue with the archives of performance art. The title is a reference to the "The Dividing Line" performative action of Tadeusz Kantor’s (1965) in which, among other elements, Kantor orchestrated covering female bodies with coal. At Mz* Baltazar’s Lab! Dorota Walentynowicz and Karolina Majewska-Güde will present some manifestations of their collective thinking through these histories – in form of images, objects and performative gestures.
