“Melody, in music is the aesthetic product of a given succession of pitches in musical time, implying rhythmically ordered movement from pitch to pitch.”

The event Entanglemant 4: #melody is the ruruHaus underground/ documenta fifteen iteration of the project Bypass by Jenny Brockmann and is an interdisciplinary project in collaboration with the curatorial collective Jatiwangi Art Factory. Elements of the project Bypass are kinetic sculptures in the form of seating circles with 12 seats (Jenny Brockmann: Seat#12), which are set up at ruruHaus as well as in the prison of Kassel.

The balance of the sculptures depends on the interaction of those seated. Experts , activists, artists, and visitors are invited to participate in the workshop Entanglement 4: #melody, a so-called discursive performance. Time, rhythm and processes of exchange with the world around us will be thematized and experimented with.

Entanglement 4: #melody revolves about what makes a melody, how it is composed, depending on time, and what happens during its creative generation. On one hand, we have the uncertain topic of process in this entanglement, and on the other, the holding and balancing of different organic and non-organic modes of existence interacting with each other.

Participants: Małgorzata Jabłońska (visual artist), Józef Gałązka (sculptor), Piotr Szewczyk (multimedia artist), Justyna Domasłowska (activist, director of Dom Kultury), Antoni Burzyński (curator, board memeber of Thaddeusz Kantor fondation), Anke Neuber (sociologist), Filip Caranica (composer), Jatiwangi Art Factory (Lumbung member) and inmates of the women‘ s prison JVA Kassel I.
