Vlatka Horvat

15th Extraordinary Congress: Berlin

Part of "The Power of Powerlessness"


English /  4,5 h, incl. intermission / Permanent admission

Vlatka Horvat and six other artists of her generation – all born in former Yugoslavia and now based in Berlin – take turns at telling and re-telling versions of the story behind the dissolution of what was once their shared country. Over a 4-hour exchange improvised inside a rule-based structure, performers share stories and anecdotes, facts and rumours, reflections and thoughts about a country in which they all grew up but which no longer exists.             

15th Extraordinary Congress is a project by Vlatka Horvat, co-commissioned by LIFT and 14-18 NOW, WW1 Centenary Art Commissions. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and initially presented with Battersea Arts Centre.  A House on Fire Project supported by the Cultural Programme of the European Union.


Concept: Vlatka Horvat / With: Hana Stojić, Paula Muhr, Tanja Ostojić, Vanja Bućan, Vedrana Madžar, Vernesa Berbo, Vlatka Horvat / Moderation: Nina Kronjäger
