Performance lecture part 2:
Olof Olsson: Driving the Blues Away –
an info comedy,
organised by Simon Starling
(cx centre for interdisciplinary studies)
in cooperation with Lothringer13 Halle.

As a part of a project being developed by a group of students from the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München/ Munich Academy of Fine Arts in collaboration with the artist Simon Starling in his capacity as Guest Professor at the cx centre for interdisciplinary studies, two key exponents of what are sometimes referred to as “performance lectures”, Tris Vonna-Michell and Olof Olsson, will present live work at Lothringer13 Rroom.

The Danish-Dutch-Swedish Olof Olsson performs info comedies. An Olsson info comedy is 40% information, 30% comedy, 20% autobiography, and 10% melodrama. It’s all steeped in Olof’s twisted love of language: “Our language and the world are not hooked up one-to-one. It’s a mess, and that makes us nervous. But it’s a funny mess.”

Olof Olsson is a product of the charter tourism of the 1960s – his Dutch mother and Swedish father met in Mallorca. In his youth Olof made attempts in journalism, documentary photography, and as a radio disc jockey. After having studied languages, philosophy and translation theory, Olof studied visual art at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen. His first exhibitions were in the form of office environments, offering semi-fictitious services. Since 2007 Olof mainly works with spoken performances, like lectures, speeches, monologues, comedy, talk-shows, and question-and-answer sessions – or something in-between or not quite.

At Lothringer 13 Olsson will take us on a rollercoaster of comic infotainment, Driving the Blue Away, an elaborate and expansive journey from silly lows to poetic highs, that connects Toblerone to Steve Jobs, cocaine, Charlie Chaplin, Adam & Eve, Kant, and sanitary porcelain.

175 minutes (including a 20 minute break).
