Besuch* is a video-collage representing a multilayering choreographic composition. Five artists with diverse practices meet in order to exchange artistic forms through interpersonal, original invitations and propose a digital co-creation. Besuch team meets in virtual environments which constitute the place of their artistic interaction. They commit themselves for over a month to dig into their various approaches, to exchange aesthetic means, to co-figure a universe and make it inhabit the screen. A shared file of instructions with colourful ideograms, a microscopic plan in large size, a DIGI-persona, a painting of sensorial stimuli and a contract via post become the jointly common score to which the team commits. They exchange these five materials and promise to visit each other’s proposal through a one-minute performance. Finally, they agree to co-edit the 25 variations and thus to compose Besuch.
The creative process is documented and offered to the public via www.besuch.team, thus rendering visible the raw data which shaped the work.
