Inspired by Anita Berber, Warhol's wig, ghosts with no home, Rita McBride's "Arena", Greg Bordowitz, Mary Shelley, Karl Valentin & Lisl Karlstadt, the Vienna Group, and more DISCOTECA FLAMING STAR is an interdisciplinary collaborative art group begun in 1998. The group is Lead by artists Cristina Gómez Barrio and Wolfgang Mayer, who are based in Madrid, Spain. Through conceptual, visual and musical transfers, DSF create performances, sculptures, drawings, stages and situations whose foremost intention is to question and challenge the memory of the public, transforming old desires and finding invented pasts, or pasts which never occurred. They exploit their knowledge and lack of knowledge, working slowly. They act directly in the gap between action and documentation, generating and finding documents that can be used to articulate strange tongues and languages that incite action and argument. Their work has been shown at numerous venues including Artists Space, Whitney Museum, The Kitchen, NYC; MUMOK, Vienna; HKW, n.b.k., Basso, KW in Berlin, Ojo Atomico, Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo, Madrid, WHW, Zagreb, Tate Modern, London, De Appel, Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam.
