Gintersdorfer / Klaßen
La pute de la joie
The sculptural homage is dedicated to the Maquis in Abidjan's entertainment district, Yopugon, who were only open during the day in 2009 due to nighttime restrictions. Gintersdorfer / Klaßen is known for its transnationality as well as the cross-border and cross-genre combinations of visual art, urban dance, theory and artists of various stripes. Different constellations of artists can be experienced every day, as well as different topics and performative tasks. There are the group members who can be there, despite Corona. However, the input of the artists from Abidjan (such as Gadoukou La Star or Annick Choco) is integrated into the project: choreographic instructions on corona dances and conjuring up the spirits of the now demolished clubs. Memories of the birth of the Coupe-Decale merge with soundscapes by Hamburger Punk Ted Gaier and deep electronic beats by Preach.
