Does Your Inside Become My Inside?

Pursing and pouting, animated by currents, inflatable spaces offer a recognition approximating my sense of flesh … my desire for other peoples’… the foreignness of my own… the meanings stuffed into it… the seduction of its stink. Tossed in the roiling of inflatable space,

alone,

I press against other occupants… my own subjectivities, previously without permission, without possibility, the suppler of my selves… drinkers of the milk I yearn to leak… tiny drops sweating through my shirt… expanding in a stereo broadcast of my longing to nourish … lacteal masculinity leaking out.

-Alex Schweder, from

“Architects After Architecture”, Routledge, 2020

For over a decade Alex Schweder has used the term ‘performance architecture’ to describe the creative practice in which he uses buildings as media to ask questions about who we become through our actions in relation to them.

His works along these lines have been collected and exhibited internationally including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Performa 17, and the Tate Britain.
