HYENAZ at Tattoo Circus Zürich 31.08.2018

Tattoo Circus Zürich

[ De/En/Fr/It/Es]

Vom 31. August bis zum 2. September 2018 wird im besetzten Koch-Areal in Zürich ein Tattoo – Circus stattfinden. Dieser ist ein nach den Grundsätzen des Do-It-Yourself-Prinzips organisiertes Festival. Während des Tattoo-Circus wird ein Raum entstehen, in dem die Tattoo-Kultur und der Kampf gegen Knast und Repression zusammenkommen.

Verschiedene Tattoo-Künstler*innen stellen ihre Zeit, Erfahrung, Kreativität und so viel Tinte wie möglich zur Verfügung, um diese Kämpfe zu unterstützen. Das Prinzip des Tattoo-Circus ist, dass niemand persönlich an dieser Veranstaltung verdient, weder die Tattoowierer*innen oder Piercer*innen, noch die Bands, Referenten*innen oder Performer*innen arbeiten für ihren eigenen Profit. Alle Unterstützer*innen stellen ihre Fähigkeiten, Energien und Ressourcen aus Überzeugung und Solidarität bereit, mit dem Bewusstsein, dass die kompletten Erlöse denen zu Gute kommen, die entschlossen gegen Staat und Kapital kämpfen.

Der Tattoo-Circus will sich aber nicht lediglich auf die Tattoo-Kultur beschränken! Es wird ein vielschichtiges Programm vorbereitet, dass sich auf unterschiedliche Weise mit den Themen Knast und Repression beschäftigt und zum Mitmachen einlädt. So wird es Vorträge, Workshops, Infos zu Gefangenen, eine Gefangenenpost- Ecke geben. Für den Unterhaltungsfaktor werden Performances, Konzerte sowie Essen und Bar organisiert.

Für eine Gesellschaft ohne Knäste und Repression!
Für eine Welt ohne Herrschaft!

From August 31st to September 2nd , 2018, a tattoo circus will take place in the occupied Koch area (Koch-Areal) in Zürich. This is a festival organized according to the principles of do-it-yourself organizing. During the tattoo circus, a space will emerge in which tattoo culture and the fight against prisons and repression come together.

Various tattoo artists will provide their time, experience, creativity and as much ink as possible to support these struggles. The principle of the tattoo circus is that no one personally profits at this event, neither the tattoo artists or piercers, nor the bands, speakers or performers work for their own profit. All supporters make their skills, energy, and resources available through conviction and solidarity, with the awareness that the full proceeds will benefit those who are resolutely fighting the state and capital.

The Tattoo Circus does not want to limit itself to the tattoo culture! A multi-faceted program is being prepared that deals with the topics of prison and repression in different ways and invites participation. Therefore, there will be presentations, workshops, information on prisoners, and a prisoner letter writing corner. Performances, concerts, food and bars are organized for the purpose of entertainment.

For a society without prisons and repression!
For a world without authority!

Full Circle: Critical Magic 비평적 마술 PROBABILITY PRAXIS SERIES 8 June 2016 – 5 July 2018


Based on an image by Jakub Ra

The Critical Magic: Probability Praxis Series has come to an end. We just made our 28th full show of the series and we want to show our appreciation to all of those who were part of the process of bringing this project into being.

The music and texts for Critical Magic emerged from the site specific performance “Spectral Rite” at Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul (2014); in collaboration with the artists Sylbee Kim and Nico Pelzer. The music was mixed by HYENAZ and Bartłomiej Kuźniak, with High Definition Mastering by Bartłomiej Kuźniak at Studio333. Thanks to Yeorg Kronnagel for makeup design, styling and accessories and Juan Chamié at House of EXIT for costumes. We are grateful to Quecke Autonomous Feminist Community for providing the space to conceive the Spectral Rite performance and record the Critical Magic album. Finally, but not least, thanks to our label SPRINGSTOFF for believing in this project and releasing this album into the world, along with Critical Magic Remixed.

We have presented this work for the past two years as an open workshop series called Probability Praxis. This process has allowed us to comment and blog about the performances in an effort to improve them, creating a dynamic and unique show every repetition. We want to thank each and every one of our INTERLOCUTORS who have danced live and on screen with us throughout this series. They have helped to create worlds and pictures that they themselves uniquely curated and designed in the moment. Our Interlocutors throughout this series have been:

Federica Dauri, ReveRso, Valentin Tszin, Nuit Nile, Donato, Savage Slit, David Wampach, Nathalie Mondot, Hana Frisonsova, Tereza Silon, Non la Décadence, Lu, Bishop Black, Olave Nduwanje, Pascal Mourits, Sanne van Driel, Yareth Habermehl, Dennis Snorremans, Lizzie Masterton, Mil Vukovic-Smart, ROC, Simon(è) Jaikiriuma Paetau, Danilo Andres, Yozhi Yazooma, Mojmir Mechura, Ambra Stucchi, Charlotte Busch, Isabel Jagoda, Joschi Rotheneder and Anonymous

Reflections on Prague Performance

Image: Boris Eldagsen

The wood has become symbolic, to me, of the nature of the performance right now, its strengths which are also its weaknesses. The fixity of the performance, its text, sound and images. They are so strong, as powerful as the log with which I bash a hole through the borders of magical reality at the end of the performance. They are so strong that they work in spite of any context in which we find ourselves. And yet…

This holds back our ritual from being truly dynamic in the way that we would like it to be, so that we are not only carrying others in the ritual but are carried along by them. Only at certain moments of the performance where there is openness (the end, when the soundtrack concludes), does this moment of autonomy from the audience occasionally emerge, where people pick up the instruments take the microphone, sing sing sing, only in these moments is the performance “free”.

This ending which only sometimes, very rarely manifests itself has to be the model for the new iteration of this evolving idea.
