HopeMe – PERFORMANCE by Anna Anderegg

October 22 @ 7:00 pm

HopeMe –
PERFORMANCE by Anna Anderegg


Performance artist Anna Anderegg presents her production “HopeMe” for the first time in Germany for a limited audience. The one-hour performance was previously presented at the Songeun Museum Seoul during Frieze Seoul and will now celebrate its German premiere at the Mahalla. 100 visitors are admitted to the performance.


“HopeMe” reflects on our societal notion of female beauty and explores self-representation in digital space. It takes up the phenomenon of hope for a more beautiful, better, more attractive and more fitting body expressed on social media.


The idea of “beauty” becomes a performative act of self-presentation in the digital space. “HopeMe” looks at the mechanisms and asks: Which social ideal images emerge in the process and how can these be challenged?


For the development of “HopeMe”, Anna Anderegg and her team took various apps as a starting point that serve self-optimisation and fitness and in which an understanding of beauty is virtually “celebrated”. The representations of such “beautiful bodies” become the basis for the physical movement material of “HopeMe”.


Screens are arranged in the dark room. The performance artist encounters several digital versions of herself. The movements contrast and intertwine with the video sequences on the screens.
