Latitud (φ). In English Latitude (in German “geographische Breite”) is a geographical coordinate that specifies the North-South position of a point on the Earth’s surface. The latitude points 32°43’06”N (North) and 55°58’44”S (South) refer to the highest (“northest”) part of Mexico to the lowest (“southest”) part of Chile, which means from Bravo River to Cape Horn.

On May 7th a group of performers, who have come specifically from Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Cuba and Brazil to present new work at MPA-B 2014, will take part in a series of indoor performances at the MPA-B’s central venue: the MPA-HUB.

As a continuation of their May 6th site-specific performance art event, the artists will take up residence at the MPA-B site along the banks of the river Spree for the entire day to present their performance art works, which are marked by a diversity of media and styles.

Latitud 32°N/55°S explores notions, stereotypes and characteristics of “Latinness” and “Latin American Art”. Over the course of three days, Latitud 32°N/55°S will present the work of 11 performance artists who through site-specific performances, indoor actions and lectures expose the problem of setting standard definitions of art, art practice and context, according to the artists’ geographical and/or ethnic origin.

The series started on May 6 and continues on May 8.
