Performing Encounters @ Haus am Luetzowplatz
April 13, 2016
Performing Encounters invited the Finnish/German art collective YKON (Tellervo Kalleinen, Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen, Pekko Koskinen, Tomas Traeksman and Christina Kral) to Haus am Lützowplatz, to design and organize a performative salon.
The YKON DINNER is an open source game that alters interactions at the dinner table. By using a dinner structure of multiple courses, YKON facilitates the interaction between guests. Rules, scripts and designed hardware encourages the conversations to go into new directions.
You could imagine the YKON DINNER as a combination of a dinner party with friends whom you haven’t met but always wanted to meet, a candy box of tools that you can take home with you and a series of close encounters with your possible futures.
