Between Performance and Contemporary Art: Presenting Interdisciplinary Projects – PART 1/3

Workshop with Ana Hupe (Independent Visual Artist and Researcher)

Language: English, questions can also be asked in German, Portuguese, Spanish
Access: This event will take place online, access to it will be provided upon registration.
Please note: 3 dates. The number of participants is limited.

In this workshop, using the examples of works that the participants bring with them, we will discuss how performances can be presented in museum, public and commercial galleries as well as art fairs. How do you organize an independent performance project in a space for contemporary art? Where can these projects be presented and to what kind of audience? The workshop will lay out the production steps for realizing a performance in a space for visual art. A special focus will be placed on the text work for presenting your project. Participants can bring their own performance projects or performance ideas with them to the workshop and we will discuss the suggestions together. The goal is also to cultivate a critical awareness of the process of artistic (performance) work: what responsibilities do I hold for artistic decisions? What challenges within the current culture debates do I have to bear in mind? How can (performance) art be newly formulated in specific areas, such as colonial history?

Ana Hupe (born 1983, Rio de Janeiro, lives in Berlin, is an artist and researcher. After spending a year doing research at the UdK Berlin in the class of Hito Steyerl, she received her doctorate in fine arts at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (2016). Hupe is dedicated to rescuing erased stories of resistance, which she rewrites in several narrative installations, thus creating a counter-memory to the colonial archive. Hupe is currently researching art relations in Yoruba culture in Nigeria, Cuba and Brazil for the exhibition "Footnotes to triangular Cartographies", which will be shown in Brazil, at RAI, Lagos, Nigeria and at Galerie Bernau in Berlin. Hupe was part of several collective exhibitions in spaces such as Savvy Contemporary, Berlin; M_Bassy, Hamburg; Haus am Kleistpark, Berlin; and in residencies such as Vila Sul, Goethe Institut Salvador, Artist x Artist, Cuba; Kunstkvarteret Lofoten, in Norway, among others.
