Performance: Florian Kaplick


We will have  very special performance, inspired by collage practice, from Florian Kaplick. His performance Kurt / ANNA \ Paul utilises the writings of German artist Kurt Schwitters and American novelist Paul Auster.

German born Florian Kaplick follows a versatile career as a musician and performance artist as well as a psychiatrist and lecturer. He studied music at the Konservatorium Nürnberg (piano, conducting, voice training) and medicine at Erlangen University with a PhD in Psychiatry and attended seminars in art history and musicology.

He has devised a diverse array of themed concerts, speech/theatrical performances and sound installations. Recent appearances include e.g. Dada performances, Kurt Schwitters’ Ursonate and 20th century music in locations like the Henry Moore Institute Leeds, Hauser&Wirth Zürich, Tate Late London, Goethe-Institute San Francisco, Ruhrtriiiennnale Dortmund, Ludwigsforum Aachen, Arp-Museum Rolandseck.

Florian’s performance will be responded to by Professor Peter Dayan.
