ÜBER MPA-B

Der MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART (MPA-B) ist eine 1-monatige Plattform, die den Reichtum und die Vielfalt unabhängiger experimenteller, zeitgenössischer und experimenteller Performancekunst in BERLIN aufzeigen, fördern und miteinander verbinden will. Das einzige Projekt dieser Art in Deutschland und darüber hinaus, der MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART – BERLIN strebt danach, den kreativen Einfluss der autonomen kulturellen Akteure innerhalb der städtischen Kunstszene mit Hilfe eines vielseitigen Performance-Programmes, Happenings, Gesprächsrunden, Filmvorführungen, Aktionen, Abendessen, Diskussionen und besonderen Interaktionen mit dem Publikum zu reflektieren.
Zum zweiten Mal bringt MPA-B im Mai 2012 Künstler, Kuratoren, Produzenten, Spielorte, Netzwerke und Organisationen zusammen, welche über die Grenzen der institutionalisierten Strukturen der Performancekunst hinausgehen, mit dem Ziel:

  • Verbindungen zu ermöglichen und Kooperationen entstehen zu lassen zwischen Veranstaltungsorten, Kuratoren und anderen unabhängigen Akteuren im Bereich der Performancekunst.
  • Die Aufmerksamkeit auf eine lebendige, aber oft übersehene Gemeinschaft von Künstlern und Ausübenden Performancekunst zu lenken und ihre Arbeit zu fördern, welche die Vielseitigkeit künstlerischer Ausdrucksformen und Sprachen entdeckt, hinterfragt und verkörpert.
  • Innovative kritische Diskurse zu pflegen wie auch praxis-basierten Austausch und Interaktion zwischen Darstellern und Zuschauern.
  • Die gegenwärtig existierende Geschichte der Projekte Performancekust in Berlin durch den jährlichen ‘Berlin Performance Art Report’ zu dokumentieren und sie in dieser Weise nachzuzeichnen wie auch zu bereichern.

MPA-B wurde im Mai 2011 ins Leben gerufen nach einem Treffen von in Berlin ansässigen Praktizierenden der Performancekunst, Künstlern und Kuratoren. Der vielversprechende Start beeinhaltete mehr als 40 Veranstaltungen, 100 teilnehmende Künstler, Kuratoren und Produzenten, 25 Veranstaltungsorte und tausende Besucher, sowohl bei den Events als auch online. Von etablierten Künstlern und Praktizierenden zu weniger bekannten Teilnehmern - MPA-B 2011 reflektiert die gesamte kreative Bandbreite der Performanceünste in Berlin wie auch die Internationalität mit Teilnehmern aus über 18 Ländern. Von Gallerien über Appartments und Nachtclubs zu alten Brauereien, öffentliche Plätze und Fernsehstudios, MPA-B 2011’s Veranstaltungen unterscheiden sich sowohl in ihrer Art als auch in der geographischen Positionierung mit 25 verschiedenen Veranstaltungsorten in Pankow, Wedding, Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg, Neukölln, Schöneberg and Friedrichshain.

MPA-B 2011 WAR AUCH ZU 99 PROZENT VON KÜNSTLERN FINANZIERT, mit seinem Organisationsteam und anderen Künstlernetzwerken, die an dem Entstehen und bei der Durchführung beigetragen haben mit finanziellen Spenden und Sachleistungen.

    Things are looking up!!

    As the call for participation to the 2nd edition of MPA-B is coming to a close (deadline MARCH 1st), we have already received a number of confirmations of participation from places and initiatives such as Escape Festival, Substitut, Kunsthause am Hamburger Platz, Grimmuseum, atelier obraviva, Co-Lab editions, A.A.A and more!!

    We have also established a fantastic collaboration with ACUD THEATER and the newly founded SERENDIPITY GALLERY who will be our hosting partners for MPA open, the 48hr Performance Art madness we are organising the second weekend of May, to welcome all the homeless budding Performance Artist out there in need of a space.

    Some great new additions to the MPA-B programming are also: a series of lectures at Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platzwith international guests from Finland, Canada and the UK; a partnership with Unbound the Live Art Development Agency's online shop for books, dvds and limited editions which specialises in publications and artefacts related to groundbreaking and risk-taking contemporary art practices ( Unbound books will be sold throughout May at various MPA-B 2012 events), and two newly formed international collaborations with our partners-in-crime Dimanche Rouge in Paris and ]performance s p a c e[ in London, who will be running parallel Performance Art projects in May with the MPA-B blessing.

    The programme is building up thanks to the enthusiasm and passion of the Berlin Performance Art community. We are running at 0 budget, all investing energy, time and commitment to make this MPA-B bigger, better and bolder...Invest as well with what you can, to also help us make this MPA-B bigger, better, bolder and more sustainable!

    Thanks to all the wonderful MPA-B supporters who have helped us raise 385 euro, to date!

    We still have 6 weeks left before the closing of our crowdfunding campaign, but also more than 2000 euro missing to secure enough funding to cover production costs to kick start our initiative! If you happen to have stumbled on this page, please read through our crowdfunding page and make a contribution of your choice (even just 10 euro can really help us towards reaching our goal!).

    The MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART - BERLIN is a unique initiative completely committed to expose and promote the work and practices of artists, curators, producers, visionaries and other important figures dedicated to the world of Performance Art. These individuals all too often work at the fringe of institutionalised Performing Arts structures, with no funding, no support, no promotion but with lots of passion, commitment, ideas and groundbreaking, inspiring work.

    Help us make a difference in the cultural panorma of the city of Berlin!

Initiator

The MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART (MPA-B) is a month-long platform dedicated to highlighting, promoting and interconnecting the wealth and diversity of independent, contemporary and experimental performance art practices thriving in BERLIN. The only Performance Art project of its kind in Germany and beyond, MPA-B reflects the creative force injected by autonomous cultural players into the city’s Performance Art scene with an eclectic programme of performances, impromptu happenings, talks, screenings, actions, interventions, dinners, discussions and unique audience encounters and interactions.

MPA-B brings experimental and groundbreaking performances to the general and specialized public alike. With its diverse programme and geographical spread and outreach, the MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART-BERLIN opens the world of Performance Art to as wide and diverse audience as possible. Most of the MPA-B events are free of charge, open to the public and advertised beyond the networks, institutions and channels catering for the traditional art-going public.

Furthermore through documentation, promotion and production support, MPA-B not only exposes and supports the work of artists, curators, and producers working at the fringe of funded and mainstream performing arts structures but it also fosters network development and collaboration, thus strengthening practices and creative growth.

TEAM

The MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART – BERLIN is possible thanks to the work of an international team of professional producers, curators and artists (coming from initiatives such as Performer Stammtisch, Grimmuseum, the HomeBase LAB, atelier obraviva, i.a.m. and VerlegtVerlag) working on a volunteer basis and dedicated to covering all aspects of the MPA-B programme development, production, promotion and artist liaisons.

The MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART – BERLIN is organised by the non-for-profit organisation Plusnull e.V. (www.plusnull.org) dedicated to supporting and fostering the Ephemeral Arts and to offering a platform for people to collaborate and join a discourse on these art forms.
