ABOUT THE PROJECT
Indranjan Banerjee & Ralph Tharayil
Acts of Transmission – an intercontinental writing piece
In the context of the international performance art platform PARTOUT, writers Indranjan Banerjee (New Delhi) and Ralph Tharayil (Berlin/Lausanne/Basel) will start a multimedial conversation in digital space on the topic of transmission – true to the platform’s motto Acts of Transmission.
This is by no means just a theoretical examination of the concept of transmission in the technical sense, but aims at incorporating the linguistic and anthropological dimensions of post-digital communication in the context of the performances, workshops and discussions taking place during PARTOUT. This is an invitation to tune into the nuances of translation and transposition within the act of transmission.
Banerjee’s and Tharayil’s conversation will take form in a telegram chat group, inviting artists and curators from PARTOUT as well as the audience to join the group and to directly witness and discover how collaborative and textual strategies between the two writers come about.
