Noise from the Matrix Boppstr. 2 10967 Berlin

POSTPONOISE DURATIONAL PERFORMANCE

Between 14:00 and 19:00hrs SATURDAY 5.2.2022 KASTANIEN RAUM PROJEKT Boppstraße 2, 10967 Berlin

REGISTRATIONS TO: visitkastanien@gmail.com or noisefromthematrix@gmail.com

Admission with donation

NOISE FROM THE MATRIX is a performance that through the use of a contact microphone creates an atmosphere of postporno and noise. The action aims to generate a sound protest through the action of female masturbation and thus raise the voice of our disputed territory: a dissident body that cries out for the right to pleasure and its freedom of action in this political territory.

This is because in days of revolt, where the female body continues to be a disputed terrain for capitalism and its lackeys, it becomes necessary to bring out the voice of our womb from the hidden, to make its essence sound, to disturb the territory that has been subjected by the patriarchy to the reproductive task for capitalist purposes.

Today, we women have said enough is enough, my body is a territory that responds first and foremost to pleasure and enjoyment and not to compulsory reproduction, and every action that I carry out corresponds directly to its will and not to that of a system of social and economic emplacement that day by day demonstrates its failure.

NOISE FROM THE MATRIX is a performance that has been presented in different formats: video performance, individual and collective performance, as well as online collaborative meta-performance. For this occasion, there will be a durational version of the piece, in which the artist will be performing for four hours, in which she will experiment with sound and visual resources, which will serve to propose an atmosphere of erotic-noise through post porn.
