De(con)structing Conformity is performance done during the opening of the exhibition REFLECTION – Ecology of Cultural Landscape on 22nd November 2012. in gallery Scheier, Čakovec, Croatia.
In De(con)structing Conformity Kruno Jošt together with collaborators Maja Kohek and Simon Podlauf destroys an armchair as a symbol of conformity in contemporary society. The armchair represents a passive attitude in an even more passive society where one doesn’t want to lose their armchair while making political moves. It gives us false security and is as such a symbol of power. The de(con)struction of the symbol enables reflection on our own conformity. The question now is how we confront conformity in contemporary society?

September started with THE LAST THEATER SHOW EVER, I-Camp theater, Munchen. Idea and methodology was to deconstruct traditional theater trough series of collaborative works where one work was supposed to lean on another, where each participant brings an idea and connects it to someone. International crew came around and investigated for 5 days in what might be called horizontal construction decision making and constant reevaluating of the final presentation that was constructed of three distinctive pieces.
All three were on collaboration but with different input and output models: one was following movements outside of theater and by computer calculations bringing it inside trough sound and visuals done with found (theater) hardware.
Another used sound in feedback communication that deconstructed viewers position and placement in theater, being done under the stage and audience sitting space.
Third one used virtual theater through on-line software with international particiants being projected on theater walls, together with orchestrated individual who brought event there.
Experiment was worth while intentions to discover what are group dynamics when artist are put together to work on something that calls for collaboration and sharing. Not to forget to mention that putting creativity with different bacgrounds into same place can be very frustrating and cathartic at the same time.
At the inner parking, hidden from the rest of the world, in the secrecy of the night a gathering was supposed to happen. And an answer to that was a performance ending in the temporary ground graphite.
During Liwoli festival in Linz (April 2009), Austria, Ricardo Palmieri and Kruno Jošt created another MIMOSA. Read more on creating it here >> and more on the MIMOSA ACTION here >>. Thanx for all the help to all participants!
