Decoder @ Elbphilharmonie, Genesis

27.04.2020. 00:00, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Decoder performs Alexander Schubert’s „Genesis“ at the Elbphilharmonie’s International Music Festival

Genesis is an experiment, which lasts over seven days, in which the audience participate, according to their own ideas,  in creating a space, a community, a world. Genesis is a social simulation that unites in itself, ideology and criticism. Thereby virtual communication, the maximum open setting, its social components can transform into one another. The project starts in an empty industrial hall. The empty space can continuously be transformed and cropped with the help of a contingent of material. Through the participants’ selection of material the setting is continuously developed and redesigned over the time of seven days. The audience is invited to create the space according to their own imaginations.

Each participation leaves a trace –  the sum of these changes and interactions will make up the entity of the work. The entirety is characterized by the personal experience of the individual as well as by the documentation of the entire process.
