Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean presents Adam Linder: Full Service, a survey of five choreographic works conceived for exhibition by Berlin-based dancer and choreographer Adam Linder (*1983).

Over a period of four weeks, each of the five services will be performed in Mudam’s gallery, gradually overlapping and eventually superseding one another, like a moving exhibition with continuously changing content. This iteration of the five services will be the first presentation in Europe of the complete choreographic cycle.

Alongside his stage works, Adam Linder has developed a parallel practice, which he calls Choreographic Services, designed and conceived for working with choreography outside of the theatre context. In the Choreographic Services, Linder’s material is the body, or more precisely: that body’s labor. They are a reflection on performance in relation to service-based economies. While none of these works are for sale, they still involve a transaction, with each hosting institution signing a contract that outlines the relationship between the performers (the dancers), the service they provide (the dance), and the cost of their labor (the dancing). 

Curators: Vincent Crapon, Anna Loporcaro

Adam Linder: Full Service is presented at Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean in collaboration with CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco.
