press release

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. In its current version it presents performance art by 125 artists and artist collectives from Eastern and Western Europe, the Mediterranean, the Arab world, the US and several countries in Latin America in the form of videos, films, photographs and texts. On its route through Europe – starting in Spain and continuing through Croatia, Poland, Estonia, Denmark and ending in Germany – this temporary archive will continue to expand through local research and scholarly cooperation. It will also be ‘animated’ through exhibitions, screenings, performances and discussions along the way, which will continuously contribute to the archive.

A performing archive is part of the long-term project re.act.feminism. Since 2008, re.act.feminism explores feminist and gendercritical performance art from the 1960s to the early 1980s as well as the ‘return’ of this artistic practice in the form of re-enactments, re-formulations and archival projects.
