Performance: The Myth: last day, 2022.
The Myth: last day is centred around a prefabricated archaeological mine, where a pseudo-archaeologist digs objects from the ground. It intertwines reality and fiction, and creates myths, thereby constructing speculative pasts and futures. The second part of the show is a black-metal-inspired doomsday-concert, where the researcher becomes a chaotic punk-metalhead. It animates the ruins, explores reasons to project towards the future and stay on the surface.

Netti Nüganen is a performance artist based between Vienna and Tallinn. She uses the performative moment as an occasion to create new ways of storytelling that could rupture the existing structures and habits. As a doomer, she looks for ways to (re)establish connections with the past, which would enable an intentional look upon the present and extend the perspective towards the future.
