VAIN CASTING LIVE is an Interactive Performance & Film Project that deals with the distorted mechanisms of self perception influenced by the development of modern social & mass media. This happens as part of a performance whose content is the molding of an ass, from a sometimes fictional and sometimes real guest character.
The performance takes place again and again in new locations and is recorded live, the guest interviewed during the casting process, the resulting material is then cut and finally broadcast as TV Talk Show format on different channels. First goal is currently creating 3 pilot episodes.
Behind the project stands a group of artists and filmmakers as well as other supporters who come and go because of the changing locations and different guests during the project.
