This November Kaunas Artists’ House hosted the last participants of this season’s residency programme: artists Daniel Neubacher (DE) and Lukas Zerbst (DE). D. Neubacher and L. Zerbst both attended the University of the Arts Bremen in Germany, where they studied contemporary sculpture. In his varied sculptures, D. Neubacher examines questions of digitisation, identity and the social role of the artist, whereas the core of L. Zerbst’s practice is working with the space and exploring the contemporary discourse on productivity. Within the framework of the KAH residency programme the artists together with sound artist Arūnas Periokas and AuRA dance theatre dancers Julija Mintautė, Matthew Woodcock-Livingston and Mei Chen were developing “Behind Closed Doors”, an experimental, site-specific, multimedia performance, which was presented at KAH on 29 November, 2018.
