Ideas are discarded. Plans are cancelled. Projects prove to be unfeasible. In Makulatur Frankfurt director Ksenia Ravvina and choreographer Kristina Veit focus on the artistically peripheral, the creative surplus, which normally lies outside our line of vision. For this, they called upon their artistic colleagues to allow them to use ideas and concepts, which did not make it beyond the bottom drawer. With the help of architect Jan Wind the artist duo are creating an installation – on the basis of the submitted material – in which hidden parts of the creative processes are turned into a spatial experience. On the basis of this installation, they have developed a performance which they presented in Stadttheater Darmstadt and Frankfurt LAB.
