For the 7th time, the project "Art of Encounter" will be organized with various partners in different cities (Basel, Hannover, Hildesheim, Burgbrohl, Salzdetfurth) and will end on October 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. in Cologne and on October 26 at 2 p.m. in Essen. Seven Asian guests are invited to show performances and meet PAErsche artists in a joint open source performance. The BEO´s Halle in the Carlswerken Mülheim will provide the appropriate setting for this. Following the performances, there will be the opportunity for the audience and the artists to exchange ideas and experiences, while the physical well-being will be taken care of.

The independence and protection of any national culture is countered by the human desire to accept, appropriate, assimilate and develop that which is foreign. It is the prime concern of the Action Laboratory PAErsche to constantly make this model of giving and taking available to the public. Theoretical ideas, practical bases for action and loved institutions are to be examined. We look at each other in action as everyone does it differently - knowing full well that there are invariants that are not foreign to all cultures. It is exciting to see how the transformation of these aesthetic patterns of action unfolds its ever new effects in front of an interested audience.

Asia guests: Chakkrit + Pattree Chimnok / Thailand, Jeremy Hiah / Singapore, Tokio Maruyama / Japan, Watan Wuma / Taiwan, Tzu Chi / Taiwan, Liping Ting / Taiwan
