    Virtuosity, a signifier for outstanding artistic skill, simultaneously implies mastery and transgression. Famously embodied by the "Devil's Violinist" Niccolò Paganini's ability to blend fear with delight, this ambiguous notion blurs the boundaries between opposing forces, and where required, between good and evil. At KW, Augustin Maurs hosts a program drawing on this intersection of skill and value.

    A workshop open to musicians and performing artists investigates virtuosic strategies and behaviors on a theoretical and practical level. The workshop will be followed by a short presentation and talks with Augustin Maurs and the visual artists Bethan Huws, Annika Larsson, Tisha Mukarji, Olaf Nicolai and Ana Teixeira Pinto about examples on the verge of skill and disruption.

    Virtuosity: A Group Of Virtuosos? in cooperation with VIRTUOSITY: A Concert at the Berlin Philharmonie, 30.4.13
