STEFFI WEISMANN – FORMATS OF WORKS
My list of works mainly includes three categories: Compositions, installations and performances. The format of presentation is crucial. Installations are usually shown in exhibitions or in public spaces over several days or weeks, while performances often take place as a one-time action in front of an audience, and I am present as the performer myself. Compositions include "notated" works that describe actions, sound, and timing in such a way that they can be interpreted and performed by others.
Intersections arise, for example, in performances that contain composed and improvised parts, or that are part of an installation and take place in a 1+1 encounter with the visitors. An installation can be performative when passers-by interact with it. Some works such as Shards also exist in different formats: as performance, installation and video.
The lists also contain works that were created in duo with other artists and for which half of the authorship lies with me.
