PPV #8: The Palace of Ritual

9-11.5.2019, Palazzo Dona Brusa, Venezia

Dear beings and peoples of the global east, dear trans-socialists, we invite you to our Venetian Palace of Ritual (a.k.a. the Palace of the Perverted Vertical)


Have we resigned ourselves to the inevitability of power's unbreakable and eternal verticality?

No! In fact, we have been busy scheming with comrades Arts Territory, Avenir Institute and the Post-Asian School of Alternative Rites to cobble together a multi- pronged programme of palatial Venetian perversions.

🍌The PALACE of RITUAL🌶 Palazzo Donà Brusa, Camp San Polo, Venice, May 9th-11th, 2pm-6pm

Unofficially referred to by some of its courtiers as the Palace of the Perverted Vertical, the Palace of Ritual will open its doors on Thursday 9th May. Please join us on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, between 2pm-6pm, for an intense programme of not only perverted and palatial but also ritualistic and ameliorative performances, screenings and symposia; featuring, among many others Jasmina Cibic, Isadorino Gore, Enam Gbewonyo, Florence Keith-Roach, Alena Ledeneva, Karolina Łebek, Lynn Lu, Maria Mileeva, Nissa Nishikawa, Jeanne Pansard-Besson, Sabina Sallis, Sarah Wilson, Zorka Wollny, Khadija Von Zinnenburg Carroll and Mengting Zhuo

Curated by Annie Jael Kwan, Denis Maksimov, Michał Murawski and Kasia Sobucka.

Made possible thanks to the support and partnership of UCL SSEES, The FRINGE Centre for the Study of Social and Cultural Complexity, the UCL Institute for Advanced Studies, The Adam Mickiewicz Institute and Istituto Polacco in Rome.

The full programme of the Palace of Ritual is available on the website of Arts Territory.

Full video and audio documentation will be available shortly.
