You are all kindly invited to join all the artists, organisers, curators, collaborators, family members, friends and pets who have carried forth the Month of Performance Art-Berlin for the past 5 years, to a unique farewell brunch at the MPA-HUB.
Come to our durational banquette where wine will flow, food will replenish, stories will be told, anecdotes recounted, memories shared and through the conviviality of it all we’ll bid farewell to the Month of Performance Art-Berlin, as we know it.

For the MPA-B 2015, MOMENTUM reprises its month-long program of Performance Sundays entitled WORKS ON PAPER.
WORKS ON PAPER inverts classic assumptions of paper as a medium, inviting performance artists to approach paper not as a static blank canvas, but as a dynamic source of conceptual and performative possibility. WORKS ON PAPER III generates a dialogue between performance artists confronted with the challenge of working with paper, and artists whose medium is paper, given the challenge of working with performance.
Taking place every Sunday in May (3, 10, 17, 24 & 31) from 3-6pm, WORKS ON PAPER III takes the form of a cumulative series of performances – with each subsequent performance engaging with the artefacts resulting from the works preceding it in the series. By generating a cumulative, site-specific series through the appropriation of the remains of one another’s performances, the artists in WORKS ON PAPER challenge and reinvigorate the notion of the stationary, disengaged exhibition. What, they ask, is the life of performance after the event concludes? Whether engaging in durational performance, instruction pieces, physical and social architecture, live performance in tandem with other media, sculpture, dance, poetry, or text, these artists challenge expectations of working with the traditional medium of paper in real-time.
Each performance is documented on video, and on 1-28 June 2015, MOMENTUM will exhibit these videos alongside the artefacts in a gallery exhibition.
