ICI Associate Member Luca Di Blasi and former ICI Fellow Marcus Coelen will participate in a discussion Landscapes of Trauma: A Psychoanalytic Look at Performance Art @ Stillpoint Spaces Berlin, 11 May 2018, at 6 pm.

The discussion will include the artist Elana Katz and a screening of her film Running on Empty, documenting a site-specific performance by artist Elana Katz in which she runs the 15km historic route of the ‘gas van’ – a mobile gas chamber used during the Holocaust in Serbia during a 3‐month period in 1942. The piece deals with memory, postmemory, and dissociative tendencies, using the body to reactivate a landscape of trauma that has been integrated into the mundane local urban and suburban surroundings.
