“Throw away yourself and build a new you”, “South Western Deserts as a place to hide”, “Fright hopping – riding the rails”,… are 3 chapters from a handy guide with the magnificent title “How to disappear in America”. In this workshop we will use disappearance itself as a motive. The symbolism and thematic of this rebellious act or weird misfortune keeps to elude: from van Caspar David Friedrich “Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer “ to Adolf Hitler’s mysterious death to Bas Jan Ader’s “In Search of the Miraculous”. Participants are invited to approach this topic from their current position within the field of the arts. Together, we will mimic, duplicate, critique and rebel.
