B(u)y Anyone – Tête-à- têtes about the question: How to Share Ideas, how to Share Money?
The table discussions launched by Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft (APiG) in 2018 on ‘how to share ideas, how to share money?’ are a regular invitation to interchange about rethinking predominant production conditions and logic, and about developing sustainable practices of sharing, utilisation and exploitation.
Under the heading of Sharing Potentials, APiG choreographer Antje Pfundtner, dramaturge Anne Kersting and other guests offer tête-à- têtes on existing and yet to be imagined models of financial redistribution. Because pecuniary issues usually entail controversial and emotional positions, the participating artists have deliberately chosen the intimacy of a peer-to-peer exchange for a consideration of money and its dynamics: where does money go when it’s paid in, distributed, utilised, wasted, increased, ignored?
There are many reasons to rethink the flow of money, and numerous artists around Europe have established funds and projects to explore new models of income generation. In 2021 Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft initiated her FUND#1 (together with other artists: Barbara Lubich, Fabrice Mazliah, Sheena McGrandles, Roberta Mosca, Tilman O’Donnell, Juliana Oliveira, Norbert Pape, Regina Rossi and Anke Strauß).
Above and beyond its monetary value, this fund serves as an inspiration for public, shared research into ways of working in the performing arts. The members of FUND#1 focus on the resources produced by their art, and how they can be utilised. How are we inspired by money that doesn’t exclusively come from or belong to a single artist or financial institution? What complementary currencies is money paid in to attract if it isn’t enough? How long does it take for reserves to be built up through artistic production? What themes and ways of working are enabled by earmarked funds?
In these tête-à- têtes Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft and other performing artists look at various models of sharing financial resources, and brush them up the wrong way with Tanzkongress visitors.
