radikale wirklichkeiten — festivalarbeit als performatives handeln is a publication by the editors Julia Buchberger, Patrick Kohn and Max Reiniger. The book brings together texts by festival organizers, festival participants, curators, and scholars as contributions to the scholarly discourse of festival studies. The publication will be released in October 2021 by transcript Verlag.

 In the context of a book presentation, the editors will explain their approach to a radical, performative and aesthetic reality of festival work in the context of organizational, framing tasks. In a joint discussion, among others with the theater scholar Dr. Yvonne Schmidt (ZHdK), we try to build a bridge from the festival context to a general, critical self-reflection of the field of tasks of production managers, cultural producers and creative producers.

In our conversation we try to use the proposed scientific vocabulary in order to open up and at the same time question our field of action as producers. If the publication argues for organizational-structural work as a performative, i.e. reality-producing mode of action, we can ask ourselves: What realities do we want to bring forth in this action as care workers, financial managers, organizers, and strategists?
