Family Constellations – performance by Juan Petry – Rheinbach (GER)

familienaufstellung-rheinbach.jpg

Family Constellations also known as Systemic Constellations and Systemic Family Constellations is an alternative therapeutic method which draws on elements of family systems therapy, existential phenomenology and Zulu attitudes to family. In a single session, a Family Constellation supposedly attempts to reveal a previously unrecognized systemic dynamic that spans multiple generations in a given family and to resolve the deleterious effects of that dynamic by encouraging the subject to encounter representatives of the past and accept the factual reality of the past (Wikipedia).”

Family constellation – a seduction – performance by Juan Petry, Ibrahim Almeslat and Nicole Bartel – Rheinbach 15.05.2016 – 18 hrs. – Glaspavillon – An der Glasfachschule

free entrance – 17.00 doors open – more activities here

the bread of the artist

In 2016 the conceptual artist Juan Petry started a project around bread in Castellon (Spain).

“As part of my german roots i was growing up in Cologne, a capital of art and culture in Germany. In this country we have a lot of different types of bread. If we went into a normal bakery you could select between more than 30 types of bread normaly, sometimes they offer more than 100 individual variations (Juan Petry).”

Many foreigners and even spanish people with some knowledge about this country of bread would like to have the chance to get such a bread here in spain. The local oeconomic situation is worst for all. Petry decide to promote and help to develop a network between customers and producers of bread, as a social sculpture and itself a social intervention and art work.

In May 2016 he will publish the first joint-venture in art with the local bakery in Cervera del Maestre. This will give local people, gastronomy and hotels access to his bread: “El  drac – pan de artistas“.
