„Rhythmic Excavation“
Mentor  Greg Fox (USA)
Mentee  Carlos Gutiérrez (Bolivien)

Carlos Gutiérrez is a composer, performer, and researcher based in La Paz, Bolivia. His work is influenced by the indigenous music of the Bolivian Highlands and extends to creating instruments, public interventions, and installations that explore tuning systems, the spatialization of sound over long distances, and aural illusions. Mentor Greg Fox is a multi-instrumentalist, interdisciplinary artist, and teacher born and based in New York City. A versatile and prolific creative, he moves through musical stages as both listener and player, a transformative rather than performative force.

 

„Post Punk Performance“
Mentor  Yuya Tsukahara (Japan)
Mentee  Victor Artiga Rodriguez (El Salvador)

Hailing from El Salvador, Victor Artiga Rodriguez is an interdisciplinary artist exploring how bodies, human and nonhuman, are subject to experience climate changes on a micropolitical scale. His Mentor is Japanese performer, director, and choreographer Yuya Tsukahara, a co-founder, together with dancer Masaru Kakio, of the improvisational performance collective contact Gonzo.

 

„Troubled Humor and Tainted Beauty“
Mentor  Roee Rosen (Israel)
Mentees  Gustavo Gomes (Brasilien/Deutschland), Mari Kalabegashvili (Georgien)

Cologne-based choreographer, director, and filmmaker Gustavo Gomes proposes a docufiction on sexual violence against men showing the complex thresholds between fantasy, perception, and dissociation. Artist Mari Kalabegashvili is entrenched in Tbilisi’s countercultures. She is a keen observer of these environments, and the visible as well as hidden scars and ruptures that shape them. Her project If You Catch My Drift examines urban environments as extreme playgrounds. Mentor Roee Rosen is an Israeli-American artist, filmmaker, and writer. He is known for his multilayered and provocative work, which often challenges the divides between history and the present, documentary and fiction, politics and erotics.

 

„Sartorial Identities“
Mentor  Irakli Rusadze (Georgien)
Mentee  Aidan Jayson Peters (Südafrika)

Designer Aidan Jayson Peters presents with "Life of a Garment" a collection underscoring the environmental impact of the fashion industry as well as the informal economies that pop up around it, and the ingenuity of those who have found new ways to process and reinvent discarded products. Mentor Irakli Rusadze is the creative director of the Tbilisi-based fashion brand SITUATIONIST, which he co-founded in 2015.

 

„Voluptuous Silence and Sociality in Poetry“
Mentor  Gabeba Baderoon (Südafrika)
Mentee  Marcela Huerta (Kanada)

Author Marcela Huerta proposes with „White Horses Always Run Home“ An empathetic and collaborative poetic experience between a mother and daughter. Mentor Gabeba Baderoon is a South-African poet, editor, academic, memoirist, and performer. She took her first class in writing poetry at the age of thirty and still describes herself as a student of the writing arts today, a quarter of a century later.

Biographien

Forecast – an Interdisciplinary Network for Knowledge Transfer

Forecast offers artists and creative thinkers from anywhere in the world the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. As an international mentorship program with annual editions, Forecast transcends neatly defined disciplines and genres to provide insight into creative production processes, and carve out space for the questions on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers.

For each edition, Forecast selects six mentors from various disciplines who offer selected participants their expertise in specifying and realizing their project ideas. Each edition of Forecast is different; the selected mentors impact the nature and content of every iteration. They define the type of applications submitted, and play an instrumental role in developing their mentees’ ideas from proposal to production. The mentoring process offers a space in which both parties can experiment, exchange, and push their concepts in new directions.

The following mentors are participating in Forecast’s eighth edition: Poet Gabeba Baderoon (South Africa); drummer Greg Fox (USA); visual artist Roee Rosen (Israel); fashion designer Irakli Rusadze of Situationist (Georgia); photographer Mila Teshaieva (Ukraine); and performance artist Yuya Tsukahara (Japan).

In addition to the Festival, Forecast will also inaugurate a rich program of workshops and activations as part of
