Fernando Rubio
The Time between us


ARGENTINA // Durational performance

The Argentinian artist Fernando Rubio’s works deal with moments that raise our consciousness for what has been forgotten and repressed. For THE TIME BETWEEN US, he designed a wood house as a place of contemplation. It is the house of a man who looks at the river from there and delves into his memories. At the Elbe’s banks, at the Baakenhöft, he is looking through the window at the river and is recalling personal stories that lead into the past, present and future. The river is time that flows by. It is simultaneously happiness and danger; a collection of stories. THE TIME BETWEEN US, which was created along the Rio de la Plata in the context of the Buenos Aires Biennial, will be expanded and resignified with the movement towards Hamburg’s port for Theater der Welt 2017 after the piece has been shown in Chile and Singapore. Placed at the heart of the festival, the performance will be opened for five days after the actor Christoph Finger has moved into the house to live and share a different time and space with others.

The house is freely accessible during the opening hours. Only for the marked Special Performances a registration is recommended.
