Tender Absence is a global class for digital performance. The goal of Tender Absence is to build a network of artists and establish sustainable structures for international collaboration. In February 2023, Tender Absence invited 13 artists from Peru, Tasmania, Chile, USA, Venezuela, Iran, Germany, Russia, Belgium, Uganda, Nigeria and India to work and think together about »Glocality« in their very own time-zone. The »Glocal Class« focused on working with local realities and environments while using the digital space as a platform to display artistic experiments. Each artist organized a workshop for the group, following these questions: How can we produce beyond streams and zoom meetings? Who are the people we are addressing on the internet? How can we convey our local realities globally without exploiting them?
The outcomes of the Glocal Class is presented in a 24-hour public digital showcase. In this collaborative hybrid exhibition, the artists present their work, give lectures and invite the audience to move around in the »Tender World« with their own avatar. The digital exhibition room opens from Sat 18.3. 3pm until Sun 19.3. 4pm.
