Verena Stenke and Andrea Pagnes

Verena Stenke and Andrea Pagnes have been working together as a VestAndPage for over a decade, and gained international recognition for their work in performance art, performance-based film, writing, and publishing. Their work moves between the unseen and the unforeseen, the unsaid, the forgotten, and the repressed. It has involved collective performance operas, and the creation of temporary artistic communities. At Untitled Imaginary Society in September 2020, hosted by Sylvie Barbier and Jacques Chlopczyk from Life Itself, Verena and Andrea reminded us that to imagine differently is to see, listen, and relate differently. At the convergence of multiple crises, how can we change our gaze to imagine a different future?
