It’s all forgotten now – A performative Mixtape for Mark Fisher (Onlinefilm)

Sophiensæle

Production Details / Press Releases

Dance meets music, film, video and spoken word: A performative homage to Mark Fisher. With his legendary blog “K-Punk”, the British cultural scientist and pop theorist Mark Fisher shaped an entire generation of pop-affine capitalism critics. In his texts on little-known music, contemporary films and books, he claimed society a cultural exhaustion syndrome and criticized the widespread view that there was no longer any alternative to capitalist reality: You can imagine the end of the world, but not the end of capitalism?

Barely three years after Mark Fisher’s suicide in 2017, the Christoph Winkler Company is now approaching some concepts of his theory, which express themselves not only politically but also aesthetically: For example “Hauntology”, i.e. ideas and theories that haunt the present like ghosts from the past, or “the Weird & the Eerie”, the strange, not to be confused with the terrible. With a performative mixtape of music, film, dance, video and spoken-word texts by Mark Fisher himself, among others, the company creates an homage to one of the greatest pop-cultural contemporary diagnosticians of our time.

The Christoph Winkler Company launched an appeal for donations for the children of the Nabulagala district (Kampala, Uganda). These children were involved in the filming for the project. Many of these children take part in the dance lessons of the artistic project director Robert Ssempijja. The Christoph Winkler Company is pleased to receive donations for the “Kids of Nabulagala” in order to continue to ensure their free access to dance lessons:
