Circuit et le Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival (LUFF)
présentent une projection en continu de films de Käthe Kruse & Die Tödliche Doris

Dans la chapelle Tell sur l’esplanade du Casino, en extérieur donc, seront projetés en continu les films de Käthe Kruse et Die Tödliche Doris, les uns à la suite des autres. Pensée comme une suite de l’exposition Danke ! Die Tödliche Doris, cette projection est constituée de captations des performances, des films en Super 8 mm et des vidéos du groupe d’artistes Die Tödliche Doris, actifs dans le Berlin Ouest des années 1980. Käthe Kruse recycle à son tour cette histoire, ce groupe, ce qu’il en reste et ce qu’on peut faire avec ces restes, en lisant notamment l’entier du contrat stipulant la manière dont peuvent être réutilisés, ou non, leur non-musique kitsch industrielle, leurs films, sculptures, peintures, pièces radio, livres, et leurs costumes.

Listes des films:

Das Lügenmeer, Die Tödliche Doris

« The films are all music-video-clips of Die Tödliche Doris, made in the years 1981 to 1987. Some like “Naturkatastrophenkonzert and -ballet” are made for the WDR-Rockpalast, and show the katasthrophes read aout of an dictionary for children. “Übermutti” is made for Barcelona-TV and “Maria” is a song about a little girls who sinks into mud, and made for Spanish TV, and all the other clips are done for a video-festival in Riehen near Basel in 1984. We have been invited to produce three days long music-Clips, editing them one day and performe them the last day in the Reithalle on the Renkenhof. The clips “Rauskommen” and “Ausflug” are made on the documenta 8 in Kassel, 1987. »

Der Vertrag, Käthe Kruse

« In this film I am reading the contract of Wolfgang Müller, Nikolaus Utermöhlen and Käthe Kruse we signed in 1994 to make sure, that only we three members of Die Tödliche Doris are allowed to work with the material and ideas. »

Le Sexe Rouge, Käthe Kruse

« I am singing the names of the mountain range in Les Diablerets and did an artpeace with the line of the range in glas. The film which is projected on my dress is the little range I filmed in the hat I am wearing for the performance. It happened in the Zwinger Galerie in Berlin in 1996. »

Lieder in Leder, Käthe Kruse

« I transformed my drums into an artpeace and when my daughter Edda is playing she performs it back into a drum set, but with a transformed sound. I am singing “Chöre&Soli” from Die Tödliche Doris. 2013, Zwinger Galerie, Berlin. »

Krieg, Käthe Kruse

« I am reading 30 minutes long all the wars in the world, started in the year zero and I am reading as fast as possible, but I did not reach the present. This performance I did with my daughters Edda and Klara Kruse Rosset for KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin in 2014. »
