1. Workshop I (24/09 – 29/09/2007)
Kinship and other Monstrosities
Antigone as a myth, a failed hero, a theatrical figure and a cultural  
political concept will be the starting cloth of this workshop which  
is led by Kattrin Deufert and Thomas Plischke. Together with the  
workshop participants, they will collect, cross-read and process  
material that tackles the myth of Antigone, the problematics of  
kinship, the politics of representing (or creating) monsters in our  
society, the functionalities of terror in a capitalistic world, the  
precarious relation between death, incest, family and suicide.
By Kattrin Deufert (D) & Thomas Plischke (D)
With Jeroen Peeters (B), Katharina Pewny (A/D) & Marcus Steinweg (D)
