rasmus knud & Søren Andreasen
The book presents the work in a mix of interpretations of specific historical works (like Jacques Tati’s Playtime), a collaborative improvised practice and representations of current states of negotiations. This book is the product of an ongoing discussion, and exposes the ideas and facts of what they do. Or rather, what they have done until now.
rasmus knud & Søren Andreasen is a collaborative art project, working together since 1999 in the constellation of Sebastian Schiørring, Johannes Christoffersen (rasmus knud) and Søren Andreasen. The project has been presented at Manifesta III (Ljubljana 2000), The Yokohama Triennial (2001), Esplanaden (Copenhagen 2002) and The Echo Show (Glasgow 2003).
The collaborative situation is what we practice and what we want to talk about. The production of social space, in other words. How we are all taking part in a continuous reorganization of space, always, already filled with organisation and activity and conflict. And how no one can claim the authority to legitimize, survey or see through productions of social space.
This pursuit of a collaborative working space, open to communication and continually revocable, is inspired by improvisation work in collaborated sessions of "Free Form": group improvisation involving patience and a willingness to wait for things to happen.
