Video still

Movement. Privatized

Austria, 2009 / 11’ 45’’
Video programme proposed by Marina Gržinić

Ana Hoffner’s re-enactment of Bruce Nauman’s video performance Walking in an exaggerated manner in the parameters of a square, from 1968, is an attempt to re-articulate the relationship of body and space into the present time. Nauman’s movement along the perimeters of a square takes place within the closed boundaries of his studio and is only accessible for the audience through the video medium. Using the example of sexual-political movements absorbed in neo-liberal capitalism and brought to a standstill, Hoffner makes it visible how a self-explained capitalistic and hetero-normative centre overspills its edges and undermines the possibility of opposition.
