dOCUMENTA(13) Jérôme Bel

Jérôme Bel, Disabled Theater,  Nº26 Kaskade Cinema

In this project he works with the mentally disabled actors of the  Theater Hora, based in Zurich.
Intellectual  declension – i.e., mental disability – is generally thought of in terms of complete otherness to the condition of the intellectually keen and cultivated public of contemporary art. Jerome Bel chooses to  put  this handicap at the center of exactly this public´s attention, adopting it as a key to the reading of what enables us to think of a common dimension. He sheds light  on the dynamics of exclusion that leads to the marginalization of  those considered unabled to produce, exposing how, on the contrary , they are able to question the very mechanisms of representation, and to hint at existence as a non partitioned mode of presence ( text: The Guidebook).
