Profile Information

Performance Discipline
The Month of Performance Art-Berlin (MPA-B) is an artist-led, non-profit and month-long collaborative platform, whose central focus is the promotion and support of independent and contemporary performance art theories and practices in Berlin.
Bio
The Month of Performance Art-Berlin (MPA-B) is a 31-day, city-wide, non-profit and non-funded collaborative platform devoted to supporting and advancing independent performance art practices in Berlin, and from around the world.

Established in 2011, and running annually in May, MPA–B connects and brings together hundreds of artists, spaces, networks and initiatives, who collaboratively contribute to the development of a unique and radical month-long cultural programme, featuring: indoor and outdoor performances, site-specific interventions, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, public encounters and interactions, durational and days-long actions, food gatherings, public tryouts and many other formats and projects which do not have, or reject, any definition.

As a non-institutionalised platform, running on the voluntary work of a handful of performance art makers cum organisers/producers, and with its non-hierarchical and jointly assembled performance art programme, co-organised by hundreds of participating artists, curators, venues and networks, MPA–B sets itself apart from most festivals and gives life to a unique project reflecting on, and celebrating the particularity, experience and creative force of the local, national and international independent performance art community.

WHY A MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART?

MPA–B was founded with 5 main objectives at its core:

1) to facilitate connections and cooperation amongst venues, artists, curators, networks, organisations and other independent players working in the field of performance art;

2) to support and draw attention to Berlin’s unique community of performance artists, practitioners and international guests;

3) to foster innovative critical discourses, practice-based exchanges and interactions between performance art makers and new audiences;

4) to explore new models and methodologies of making, presenting and sharing performance art;

5) to document the history of contemporary performance art practices in the city through the annual Berlin Performance Art Report.

Over the last four editions, MPA–B has taken place at over 90 locations in 10 city neighbourhoods. It has showcased the work of hundreds of performance art makers from around the world. It has facilitated local and transnational collaborations, partnerships and artists’ mobility which continue beyond MPA–B itself. It has interconnected and brought visibility to Berlin-based independent spaces and performance art practices relegated to the fringes of mainstream and funded performing arts structures. It has brought to the broad cultural panorama in Berlin, the only annual international platform dedicated to performance art. It has helped create the Association for Performance Art in Berlin e.V.
