Curated by Fadwa Naamna, De Appel Curatorial Fellow (2017/18), “Transpositions” was a series of multifaceted events manifested through oftentimes overlapping and contracted axes and relations. The program included performances, talks, and lectures by artists, curators, and thinkers. Thalia Hoffman collaborated with Palestinian actor Morad Hassan on the performance Interior Parts. Inspired by a short story by Robert Walser, over an increasingly intense twenty minutes, Hassan recounts his life story to Hoffman while she serves him interior parts of a lamb, which she carves and prepares on stage in front of him. The more Hassan eats, the less informative his story becomes, until he is left with the anonymous identity of an ordinary citizen.
