White on White #2 - THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE

If WHITE people like us engage in the thinking and practices of Critical Whiteness, there is always the danger of narcissism in research, unconscious recentering of WHITE positions and even the risk of racist self-assurance.

To confront these abysses was one of the prevailing artistic goals of White on White #2 - THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE: creating a complicated mixture of strategies to mark oneself applied by white-power-organizations on the one hand and Critical Whiteness-thinkers on the other.

THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE was a co-production between Institutet (Malmö, Sweden), IRMAR (Dijon, France) and Centraltheater (Leipzig, Germany).

After a period of thorough preparation, the invisible empire was realized as two durational performances. The first one located in Brösarp, Sweden (in collaboration with NEON gallery) was a three days camp (entitled Tillsammansläger) based on the uncanny presumption that the aspect of community could be based on racial commonality.

The second one, lasting 18 days, offered the audience the possibility to enter an iron construction build around a public square in the center of Leipzig, from where they could watch the piece without being seen by the performers.

What they would witness inside, was a cast of 10 WHITE males trying to enjoy whiteness.
