All Güt Things (2019)

When a local dialect disappears,
what goes along with it?

German, a unique German dialect developed in Central Texas, was once a thriving
language with over 110,000 dominant speakers during its peak in the early 20th
century. Today, however, it’s on the verge of extinction.


In partnership with the Czech Center Museum Houston, the Goethe
Pop Up Houston presents All G
üt Things, a newly completed documentary by Chase Honaker that chronicles the story
of the
19th century immigration of Germans to Texas and
the unique dialect that was born from it.


The screening will be accompanied by a talk from the
filmmakers as well as a discussion around the Texas German and Texas Czech
dialects and their preservation.

Screen Dance

A weekend-long intensive video dance workshop exploring site-responsive experimentation through the interdisciplinary process of mixing body movement and film together in Houston.

Led by the Las Girls Collective, Daniela Antelo and Brenda Cruz-Wolf, the participants will collaborate to create work in an immersive environment in various Houston locations as the urban landscape for movement and filmmaking. This workshop will be open to all community members- ranging from filmmakers, choreographers, dancers, visual artists or anyone interested in the art of collaboration.

The workshop will include:

     Introduction of screen dance, watching and examining contemporary films and talking through what makes screen dance successful.
     Exploring and encouraging a dialogue about what motivates and inspires us as makers, artists and creatives.
     Encourage participants to talk about their lives, creative experiences and practices as a tool to fuel art-making.
     Discuss different approaches to structuring a work.
     Engaging in a free-flow of ideas and what ‘feels right’ in movement, choreography and filmmaking.

The emphasis of this workshop will be to create a visual story on film, based on the experiences and responses of site-specific performances.  The versatility of video allows to reach a vast range of audiences, putting Houston and Houston artists at high exposure. Our goal as a collaborative is to introduce screen-dance as another facet of interdisciplinary arts within Houston. We want to share our passion and bring forth new ideas about collaborative art making.

Screening of The Way Things Go - A Film by Peter Fischli & David Weiss followed by a conversation with Trey Duvall

The Way Things Go - Inside a warehouse, Swiss artists Peter Fischli (b. 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012) built an enormous, precarious structure 100 feet long made out of common household items: tea kettles, tires, old shoes, balloons, wooden ramps, etc. Then, with fire, water, gravity and chemistry, they created a spectacular chain reaction, a self-destructing performance of physical interactions, chemical reactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Rube Goldberg or Alfred Hitchcock.

Fischli and Weiss have collaborated on kinetic installations since 1979. All of their work to date, whether in photography, film, drawing, or sculpture, has demonstrated a deep interest in the mechanisms that animate the universe of objects. They remove these things that surround us from their contexts in our daily lives, and then restructure their relationships to one another. The artists aim neither to glorify nor to alienate these common objects, but merely to create new references in which they might be considered.

Called "the merry pranksters of contemporary art" (The New York Times), Fischli and Weiss collaborated for 33 years, drawing worldwide notoriety and praise for taking on big questions with humble materials and a tongue-in-cheek manner.

Trey Duvall is an artist and educator. Duvall works in various forms including large-scale installations, video, performance, and traditional sculptural mediums concerning duration, stamina, humor, exhaustion, and entropy. He is also a Teaching Fellow at the University of Houston and a Masters of Fine Arts candidate. Duvall will be discussing aspects of The Way Things Go, as well as his work fromIdiot Machines/Infinity Loops at Lawndale Art Center.
