PERFORMER STAMMTISCH: FAUSTO GRACIA, JÖRN J. BURMESTER UND FLORIAN FEIGL
PERFORMANCE AND TALK
Performer Stammtisch met Fausto Gracia during their participation in Biennal Deformes in Chile in 2013 and is proud to host the first performance he presents in Berlin, an action-installation titled „Dislocation“.
After Fausto’s performance, Florian and Jörn will continue their ongoing exploration of collaboration and non-hierarchical learning in performance art, the last part of which was last Monday’s performance Group Work. In one part of their new performance they collaborate with British performance artist Katy Baird via Skype, integrating her piece that they bought at Auction Achtung!, an auction of life art 2 Mondays ago, into their collaboration.
As always at Performer Stammtisch, there will be a chance to reflect and discuss after the performance.
