Skills: Performance, Stage Setting, Video Installation

No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper


The video-music-performance ‘No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper’ premiered in 2016 at the UNPAINTED ART FAIR in Munich. For the opening of Manuela Hartel’s exhibition at the Kunsthaus Zofingen, Switzerland, she unveiled her video installation with an adaption of this performance. The video image, projected onto satellite dishes and performers, condenses the setting into a multi-layered total work of art with organically produced, electronically processed sound that she interprets with her voice.

Images and music seem to spring from the viewer’s inner perception and let Manuela Hartel (video, performance, voice) and Lorenz Schuster (electronics, sound) appear as “from another planet”, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung described the performance in February 2016.
