Mutual influence is the basis for all conversation, starting with the way that listeners make people speak, and that speakers make people listen. Which means of mutual influence are available in a performative setting, and how do sonic vibrations, screen focus, verbal reflection and physical expression differ from each other in their manipulative potential? Anna Zett explores the stage as a space of virtual contact. With the help of a card deck, a modernist tarot adaptation, she tries to disentangle the tight net of associations between voice and hand within the symbolic cosmos of democracy.
Anna Zett is an artist, writer, director of films and radio plays. Working alone and in teams, Zett combines historical research and analysis with a performative practice rooted in the undetermined, present situation. Her work tends to center around well-known symbols from modernist, capitalist or scientific memory, looking to open up their political and emotional association patterns. Anna Zett grew up in Leipzig and lives in Berlin.
