Alex Baczyński-Jenkins Warsaw, Poland / Berlin, Germany

Unending love, or love dies, on repeat like it’s endless

Warsaw, Poland / Berlin, Germany

After presenting the performance “Untitled. Holding Horizon” at last year’s Festival, Alex Baczyński-Jenkins returns to Santarcangelo with a choreography reflecting the relationship between desire, dance, fragmentation, love (as commonality) and time. Through gesture, sensuality, touch and relationality, Baczyński-Jenkins’s practice unfolds structures and politics of desire. Relationality is present in the dialogic ways in which the work is developed and performed, as well as in the materials and poetics it invokes: the performance traces relations between sensation and sociality, expression and alienation, the textures of everyday experience, utopias and queer influences. Baczyński-Jenkins approaches choreography as an opportunity to reflect on matters of feeling, perception and collective emergency while indulging in other ways of experiencing memory, time and change.


Alex Baczynski-Jenkins is an artist and choreographer engaging with themes such as affect, embodiment and relationality. He is co-founder of Kem, a Warsaw-based queer feminist collective. He has presented his work in numerous international contexts, such as the Venice Biennale, Foksal Gallery (Warsaw), Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Zürich), Chisenhale Gallery (London), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw), Swiss Institute (New York), Muzeum Sztuki (Łódź, Poland), deSingel (Antwerp) and Arsenic (Lausanne). In 2018, he received the Arts Foundation Award and the Frieze Artist Award, and in 2021, he won the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art.
