Abstract and Keywords

The interview of Janez Janša by Janez Janša elaborates on the economy of culture based on the performance Fake it! from 2007, which is described as a translation of seminal choreographies, in contrast to re-enactments or reconstructions. The re-enactment does not render an inherently ephemeral work present, but it underlines its absence. Thus a re-enactment performs the impossibility of being in another place/time; and that is its basic political impact. The choreographies chosen to be performed in Fake it! function as performatives in the Austian sense: by performing them, the economy of their absence and the cultural policy, which supports their absence, are performed. The choreographies in Fake it! are socialized; they became a public good and strengthen the embedding of dance in culture.

Keywords: re-enactment, reconstruction, faking, Fake it!, dance, choreography
