shamebox is the title of the latest performance of Iva Sveshtarova and Willy Prager. With it they lock up themselves together with the phenomenon of shame in the box set in order to investigate it from within. They enter as kids, led by their endless, even ruthless, curiosity. But the game gets harsher and the infantile desires become more and more shameless. That is why Sveshtarova and Prager move to the virtual boxes that the internet offers gracefully, so that they can continue to play around. Often in a brutal manner, which is at the same time grotesquely funny. How far it all goes and how much would the artists endure to the shame’s performativity?
