A growing, temporary and living performance archive traveling through Europe from 2011 to 2013. It presents feminist, gendercritical and queer performance art by a vast number of artists and artist collectives from the 1960s to the beginning of the 1980s, as well as contemporary positions.
The next stop of re.act.feminism #2 – a performing archive on its tour through
Europe is the Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona, Spain. The continuously crowing
archive has recently been enlarged by another 14 artists and contains currently
more than 233 performance documents, mostly DVD and photography by 163
artists and artist collectives.
During its stay at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, the archive will be accompanied by a
series of lectures & talks initiated in collaboration with Centre de Cultura de Dones
Francesca Bonnemaison, the Goethe-Institut Barcelona, the Mercat de les Flors,
Irregular Section and the Càtedra d’Art i Cultura Contemporanis de la Universitat de
Girona, among others. An Activity Space for educational and research activities in
the form of workshops, screenings and presentations will allow the audience to
further engage in current questions on performance art and feminism.
In June 2013 the mobile archive will travel to Berlin for its final presentation at the Akademie der Künste Berlin. Save the date! re.act.feminism #2 - a performing archive is a continually expanding, temporary and living performance archive travelling through six European countries from 2011 to 2013.
