CHEAP METHOD EDITION offers a collection of working material issues. the aim is to open up a publication series with specific methodologies, which are the basis for the creation of performative work. it is not primarily about documentation, it is about starting a discourse on performative praxis, about the approaches, the material, the historical and political contexts and transposition, as well as the (artistic) decisions, the specific knowledge and experiences which are assembled in different working processes and discourses.

CHEAP METHOD EDITION publishes examples to create a discourse on fading performative works. CHEAP METHOD EDITION combines artistic research with scientific and experiential knowledge, connecting both in thematic issues to open up wider contexts which can be reused, re-worked, re-discussed and compared.

new zagreb. the museum of contemporary art (MSU), its space, collection and environment, and the unique concept of its urbanism were the starting points of the artistic research project called biographical landscapes of new zagreb by claudia bosse, and was conceived through field research, including the analysis of actual experiences of urbanism in new zagreb based on the memories and lifestyles of its inhabitants.

invited by EUROKAZ and MSU to develop a project for the museum and its surroundings, claudia bosse and günther auer collaborated on visiting living spaces (apartments) in different urban areas of new zagreb in december 2011. in march 2012, they interviewed the inhabitants on issues such as democracy, capitalism and identity. these experiences resulted in the research project which became part of the museum's live installation, and an arttransfer between the museum and private living spaces.

in may 2012, claudia bosse developed choreographies with ten people living in new zagreb: daily routines enacted on the floor plans of their actual apartments. by repeating the motions of daily activities and well trodden trajectories across the apartment, the dwelling space was ritually reconstructed. in july, inhabitants from different generations brought seven apartments, displayed in their original size, to life in the museum. the projections of their interviews and multiple private documents were exhibited. at the same time, art pieces selected by claudia bosse in collaboration with tihomir milovec were placed in the apartments of the participants: a transfer of contexts and connections, a re-reading of the art pieces and the particular living space. adjustment and collision. a recontextualisation of the artwork and the private spaces. the life of the inhabitants wanders as biographical archive across the bodies, actions and narrations into the museum.

in this publication, i want to share the research, including transcripts of the interviews and photographed details of the flats and their surroundings in new zagreb, followed by views of the installation in the museum and biographical pictures of the participants. an interview done in the research phase with the architect vinko uhlik, who was a member of the architectural team that developed parts of new zagreb, is published here as well. with this publication I try to give an insight into my artistic process. claudia bosse

struggling bodies in capitalist societies (democracies) was an experimental symposium about discipline, asceticism, body images and political constructions of the "self". struggling bodies in capitalist societies (democracies) debated the body as the place of the political, with experimental set-ups in different spaces and spacial settings, as lecture, dialogue and roundtable. two days of discussion took place on "body concepts" – from the disciplined body to the body as battle ground of economic and social duties; from bioethics to the machineries of desire in connection to religious and political orders; and as a space and constellation for fragile thoughts and perhaps new methodologies.

struggling bodies in capitalist societies (democracies) as the first issue of CHEAP METHOD EDITION collects the texts and documents of gerald siegmund, elke van campenhout, marina gržinić, alice pechriggl and hrvoje jurić, as well as fragments of the transcribed discussions, photos of the symposium with the same title as the issue hold in december 2012, the performance of guenther auer, as well as photos of the performance "designed desires" of claudia bosse. the order of the texts follows the structure of the symposium and offers a parallel reading of thoughts developed through spoken language in confrontation with constructed texts. it also gives an outline of the topic's blind spots, proposing a dialogue of divergent viewpoints and thought models on the main subject: "struggling bodies in capitalist societies". 

editor: claudia bosse, editorial team: with anna etteldorf, copy editor: kristen mueller, graphic design: anne lange, texts by elke van campenhout, gerald siegmund, marina gržinić, hrvoje jurić, alice pechriggl, photos by felipe kolm, anja manfredi, claudia bosse, marijeta karlović
