performance platform. body affects

2012 July 5th to 8th, Sophiensaele Berlin

A project by Silke Bake and Bettina Knaup

performance platform: a program which deals with performative art as a medium and wants to contribute to a dialogue across disciplinary boundaries.

Humans and animals, organic and inorganic bodies are interwoven together and in a constant exchange with one another, they contaminate and affect each other.
body affects presents artists and theorists, who consider the body not independent of its extensions and contexts and integrate the body in a solidarity with oter life forms. A program with performances, lectures, screenings, and discussions presents i.a. the city as animated matter, performances for and about dogs, or (monstrous) metamorphoses.

Realised in cooperation with SOPHIENSÆLE, Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin, Video-Forum des Neuen Berliner Kunstvereins (n.b.k.). Funded by: Hauptstadtkulturfonds. Supported by Goethe-Institut, British Council, cine plus.
