The Association for Performance Art in Berlin APAB e.V. invites you to its first conference on the subject of Curating as an Artistic Practice. The conference takes place at the Artist’s Residency GlogauAir in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

How and why is curating an ARTISTIC practice?

During the two-day conference numerous international performance artists who consider curation a vital part of their artistic practice will shed different lights on the practice they share in the forms of lectures, performances, discussions, documentation and various hybrid formats. The conference is open to all interested parties.

ÜBER TEÜCHTER

PERFORMANCE COLLABORATION BETWEEN GLASGOW AND BERLIN ARTISTS

TIME: 19:00-22:00

Über Teüchter is a project which aims to build a performance ‘bridge’ between Glasgow and Berlin – planting it’s initial foundations during the last MPA-BERLIN ANTHOLOGY platform in May 2015 – with a second platform being proposed in August 2015, held in Glasgow.

Why build this bridge? The two cities share a common thread of cultural and social individuality. Both cities transcend their cultural and creative boundaries, choosing to lead and explore where others are content to follow….

Über Teüchter then, is a seed blown from the tree of MPA-B – a possibility of growth, collaboration and experimentation that would take root in a city of similar fertile possibilities – a conduit by which we can share and exchange ideas and learn to work together. Über Teüchter will be an ongoing live art experiment between Berlin and Glasgow – seeking the skills of the Super Outsider to divine new performance methods and opening creative International pathways to explore…

MPA-B ANTHOLOGY 2015 – ÜBER TEÜCHTER PROGRAMME
The proposal is to bring 4 renowned / emerging Glasgow based performance artists to Berlin to present solo introductory works alongside 4 renowned / emerging Berlin based Performance artists as part of MPA-B ANTHOLOGY.

Following an evening of individual introductory presentations they will all spend time together creating something – a potential series of new works, ideas, actions and conversations, collaboratively in various potential combinations.

Whatever comes from their time together is presented at the end of their stay as part of MPA-B 15. This action will precipitate the formation of the Über Teüchter platform in Glasgow in August.
