David Weber-Krebs, Belgium

David Weber-Krebs (*1973, Liège, Belgium) is a theatre director, a film- and video-maker, and a performer. His work varies between theatre performances that either are intimate or stage crowds, lecture performances, events for one spectator in the public space, as well as films and videos. He explores various contexts as a basis for an experimental process, which questions the traditional relationship between the work of art and its public. The spectator is placed right into the centre of the work, which is playing with his perception and expectations.

During his residency David Weber-Krebs focuses on modularity and seriality on the basis of the Weltkulturen Museum's collection. His selection includes IWF films from the image archive and a series of 55 head rests from Zimbabwe.
