Notes is a poetic gesture in which a group of readers write notes in the margin of same book sharing this body of literature, knowledge or theory as a matrix and a space for different reflections. The chosen book is Spartakus – The Symbology of Revolt by Furio Jesi. The facsimiled pages of the annotated book will be exhibited, creating a sort of a ‘dissected map’, through which the visitor can wander.

Ivana Müller is a choreographer that works with notion of body and movement in a broad way. In all of her works she deals with the idea of “collectivity”, considering collective processes of thinking and feeling, in ritualized or un-ritualized forms, necessary in order to keep our lives and societies balanced and worth living.
Through her artistic work (performances, installations, text works, video-lectures, audio pieces and web-works) Müller re-thinks the politics of spectacle and spectacular, re-visits the place of imaginary and imagination, questions the notion of « participation » and keeps on getting inspired by the relationship between performer and spectator.
Although she creates through various forms, theatre remains the principle context in which she develops and presents her work. Her pieces – among others How Heavy Are My Thoughts (2003), While We Were Holding It Together (2006), Playing Ensemble Again And Again (2008), 60 Minutes of Opportunism (2010), In Common (2012), We are Still Watching (2012-2015), Positions (2013), Conversations Out of Place (2017) – have been produced and presented in some of the major theatre festivals and venues in Europe, USA and Asia, over the last 15 years.
Müller’s work has been occasionally shown in visual art contexts too, namely at Venice Biennale 2015.
Ivana Müller was born in Zagreb and grew up in Croatia and in Amsterdam. She lives in Paris and works internationally.Back to top
