Erlebnis is a term widely used in psychology, philosophy and in general in the human sciences in Germany from the beginning of the 20th century, adopted to affirm an active, dynamic conception of the life of consciousness, against its positivistic reductions to a simple physiological, mechanical, associative process. 

It indicates the personal, unitary aspect whereby the contents of consciousness are not received passively, but grasped vividly in the flow of consciousness.



40 years ago the artists' meeting KONZIL ended in Stuttgart. From 1 to 30 September 1981, more than 70 artists came together in the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart to live, work, initiate and reflect on processes. The International Performance Archive DIE SCHWARZE LADE | BLACK KIT emerged from it. Constantly growing, it contains thousands of documents, relics, photographs and materials from the international performance scene.
On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, the International Performance Art Archive is picking up the threads of the KONZIL again; but it is not calling out another one. Some things cannot be repeated. From 30 September on, the hybrid performance meeting “One Month of Experimental Work – h an  de ln" takes place in Cologne and online.
