The Kakania Symposium

March 31st at ACF London: 2pm, 3pm, 4pm in 3 sessions 
Preceding the evening’s performances there will be a symposium on Habsburg Vienna, through the kaleidoscope of Kakania’s inventive approach, led and curated by Dr.Diane Silverthorne, a leading voice in Habsburg Viennese studies. The Symposium will feature informal and academic talks about the era, interspersed with poetry and text art readings from poets and writers involved in the first year of the Kakania project, who will also give context to their process. The Symposium will also see a screening of the acclaimed film Altenberg: The Little Pocket Mirror. The schedule is thus:

2pm: A talk by Dr. Diane Silverthorne on expressionist  landscapes in music and art and a talk by Dr. Leslie Topp, on madness, architecture and Vienna.

3pm: A talk by Jamie Ruers on Cabaret Fledermaus followed by readings and discussions by Eley Williams on Broncia Koller-Pinel,  Vicky Sparrow on Margarethe Wittgenstein, Stephen Emmerson on his multi-part performance art response on Rainer Maria Rilke, Marcus Slease on Max Kurzweil and a screening of Joshua Alexander’s experimental film on Paul Wittgenstein, commissioned for Kakania

4pm: A screening of ALTENBERG: The Little Pocket Mirror  A documentary by David Bickerstaff and Gemma Blackshaw  | 54 min

About Kakania

Following a brilliant first year in which 40 artists made 40 new commissions, 5 events in 5 venues took place in London and 2 original books were launched, Kakania returns with events in Berlin and London. The project is thoroughly documented here: www.kakania.co.uk and the project is only possible through the generosity of the Austrian Cultural Forum London. Kakania is curated by SJ Fowler.
