♦ MPA-B PROGRAMME: May 28th ♦

Who says MPA-B is coming to an end? With 4 more days left on the programme, and plenty more wonderful performance art projects coming up your way…we’re well far away from being near the end.

This afternoon, starting at 17:00 (free entrance) Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platzthere will host a lecture (in German) with curators Beatrice E. Stammer and Kaj Osteroth about RE.ACT.FEMINISM #2, a living performing archive which is continually expanding and travelling through six European countries from 2011 to 2013. The archive presents feminist, gendercritical and queer performance art by over 120 artists and artist collectives from the 1960s to the beginning of the 1980s, as well as contemporary positions. The lecture is part of the WATCHING A CAT WATCHING A MOUSE HOLE performance/lecture/exhibition series at Weissensee Kunsthochschule.

The ongoing collaboration between Associate Curators Paula Marie Hildebrandt & Nathalie Fari, will materialise today in MADE IN OMNITOPIA-BERLIN (MIO-B 2013), starting at19:00 (free entrance) at the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Moabit. Starting point for ‚made in omnitopia‘ is the concept of omnitopia originally coined by urban scholar Andrew Wood: ‚utopia‘ (not-place) and ‚heterotopia‘ (other-place) to reveal the shift from totalizing narratives to overlapping contradictory narratives. Omnitopia can best be described as a kind of embodied performance, always in the present tense and ‚made in omnitopia‘ – will trace the contours of omnitopia in today’s Berlin, where public life in the sense of meaningful human interaction happens or could have happened…

If you have missed the Warmer Brothers’ HOT ACTS (URBAN RITUALS), you can still join tonight’s dinner at Mab’s apartment. There are 2-3 places available and you can reserve your own spot at: cookingnomad@gmail.com or you can call Pepe at +4915217014928. Four HOT ACTS have so far created four distinct evenings, which show that each ‘repetition’ reveals that each act remains a virgin. For hot acts # 5 “@!?&#”, the Warmer Brothers ask the same question: “what does it mean to be together? We cook the same thing, our leftovers. Yet for sure, it will turn out to be a different social experience. Moods change, energies shift, time passes, food gets cooked. A prayer to the guests: as you arrive at the meeting place with your excess food, things, and thoughts, try to smile at the possibility that these leftovers of yours might just be what we need to complete today’s hot social recipe. See you at Mab’s place!”
