Old Masters (Geneva) «Constructionisme» at 13ª Mostra de Performance VERBO, Galeria Vermelho (São Paulo)

Old Masters is a Geneva-based collective consisting of Marius Schaffter (performer and geographer), Jérôme Stünzi (artist and scenographer) and Sarah André (scenographer and artist, alias André André). Inspired by the ancient masters from whom they derive their name, Old Masters strives to deconstruct scientific and artistic discourses with aesthetics inspired by derision.

Presented as part of the Verbo festival, «Constructionisme» was performed in

particular at the Landesmuseum in Zurich, the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius, the Centre Pompidou and at the Extra Ball festival of the Centre culturel suisse in Paris.

With this performance, Old Masters distorts the codes of conduct that apply to the academic conference.
