LAND WITHOUT WORDS by Dea Loher

‘It is, I cannot describe it any differently, a pointlessness which also enters words and leaves them without meaning. Something natural gets destroyed. The normal process, the safety, of putting my feelings and experiences into words is broken.

Dea Loher/speech to the awarding of the Bertolt Brecht Award, 2006

When language is not enough anymore to put experiences into words, when art has reached its limits – and then? After her travels through the war marked Afghanistan in 2005, the dramatist Dea Loher describes that state: ‘It is, I cannot describe it any differently, a pointlessness which also enters words and leaves them without meaning.’ The artist collective missingdots shows an interdisciplinary performance over the loss of naturalness.
