EXTENSION EXTRA

PictureShannon CochraneFor the second edition of MPA-B 2012, the two-year-long Performance Art programme Extension Series goes EXTENSION extra featuring twelve performances by artists coming from eight different countries; four lectures and a three week-long exhibition of the performance project Kanon 1-12 by Henrik Vestergaard Friis.
Extension Series has regularly invited young and established artists for short residencies to develop new work, introduce them to new audiences and showcase experimental documentation. Each series has been accompanied by lectures about different topics on performance art practices today to create discussion, exchange and research on unconventional methods for documenting and approaching actions, experiences and situations that have already vanished. EXTENSION extra is taking place at Grimmuseum and at the Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz and embraces practical and theoretical discourse on Performance Art by showcasing a wide range of performance art approaches and a number of unusual ways of working with the basic elements of Performance: space, time and presence.

The GRIMMUSEUM is organized by artists and its activities are divided in categories: visual, performance and sound art. A group of 6 international artists runs the interdisciplinary program of exhibitions, residencies, performances, that aims to be an exemplary representative of the spectrum of contemporary art. GRIMMUSEUM is a non-profit organization and is entirely privately funded relying on the acquisition of third-party funding in order to realize its projects.

DIE MADE IM SPECK: PERFORMANCE,  SOUND INSTALLATION AND LECTURES (RUNNING UNTIL MAY 18TH)

Picture(Click image to enlarge)Die Made im Speck is an installation and performance project about the dimensions of social disgust. Disgust doesn’t only relate to biological decomposition processes but also to social groups and behavior. In Pasolini’s work disgust manifests itself as moral and sexual squalidness, which he associated with fascism. Sartre conceives disgust
rather as senselessness and randomness of existence. After all disgust is an important topic of groundbreaking philosophical reactions and concepts of the 20th century. The connection between the human‐existential and social disgust can be seen, for example, in the viewing “gures of TV‐Shows like Das Dschungelcamp on RTL ‐ the market share was at 40 percent, meaning 7.28 million viewers – in which celebrities of Germany eat maggots and get showered in cockroaches. Massmedia shows such as Gnadenlos (Sat.1) and Das Messie‐Team (RTL2), feign to be debates on a socially‐specified dimension. Yet they point their anger at distorted social images without, however, identifying and analyzing the underlying social pathologies. The insights of science are always lesser than the pool of man’s experience. Every scientific interest in insight is always confronted with certain leftovers, realities that are methodically elusive. In so far as disgust is the eruption of the negative and the carnally‐unknown, science is constantly faced with its limitations. The present with its complexity of diverse indexes can only be captured, simulated and experienced by and through art. With die made im speck we attempt to collectively approach the dimensions of social disgust from different angles and to further deconstruct it. This deconstruction will touch on and confront us with our own boundaries in relation to our moral, our mentality and our patience. In this respect, the different artistic fields shall converge to a total work of art.

ESCAPE – INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL (MAY 11TH TO MAY 19TH)

Picture(Click image to enlarge)ESCAPE 2012 is the programmatic title of the International Festival being planned and organized by Open Space Berlin and BLO-Ateliers. Escape is a geopolitical phenomenon associated with third world countries, or war zones but also leads to terrible humanitarian crises on the borders of Europe. The question of whether or not escape is possible has also been highlighted by the recent nuclear catastrophe in the highly developed country of Japan. With this mind, this theme has been consciously chosen to serve us as a screen and source of inspiration for an International Art Festival with a focus on performing arts, and cultural exchange between Asian, European, US- and South American artists and the local performance scene in Berlin.
