A Short History of Lotto Royale
In 2021, The Club for Performance Art Gallery organized a one-day program of one-on-one performances by 30 artists at Dock 11 in Prenzlauer Berg in collaboration with the collective T.E.N.T. The program featured a lottery system for pairing individual audience members with individual performers. While the 30 artists performed with one audience member at a time, the members of T.E.N.T. activated the spaces at Dock 11 with pop-up performances and music by sound artists and DJs. Working at the limits of intimacy, public gathering, and towards a new relationship between performer and audience in the era of Covid-19, The Club and T.E.N.T. have since replicated this activation of public space at Fortuna, a former casino converted into an arts space in Neukölln, and in Buenos Aires.
