◊ MPA-B 2014 | MAY 5 ROUND-UP ◊


Happy Monday! Here is what we have in store for you today.

If you haven’t wasted enough time in your life, now you can add an extra three hours to your portfolio of idleness, from 9:00-12:00 at the Europaplatz exit at Hauptbahnhof with Julia Gebauer’s LET’S WASTE

Meanwhile as architect Martin Kaltwasser puts final touches to the MPA-HUB (aka DingDongDom), we kick start our Try-Outs series (in which Co-Labourers present last minute and spontaneous actions) with Antoine Grissault who will realise two photographs inspired from bodily postures from movie scenes (come and be part of the SHOOTING!) starting at 11:00.

From 14:00 to 17:00 Shelley Etkin will facilitate the DING DONG DAWDLE, a co-habitat laboratory open to all, offering time & space to explore the landscape/environment of the MPA-HUB and its surroundings.

At around 17:00, Vincent Roussel will present GRAIN, a sound performance – continuous sound – two listenings – small objects and chemical reactions.

From 18:00 you can re-awaken the archeologist in you together with Antoine Grissault, Vincent Henaff, Lise Poulette, Lucie Riou, Vincent Roussel who will carry out THE EXCAVATION, after a bone was found on the outside area of the MPA-HUB.

Wrapping up the day we have the first of a four week-long Monday series by Performer Stammtisch. Tonight starting at 19:30 at the MPA-HUB there will be a world-wide Performance-Auction, AUCTION ACHTUNG, selling Live Art to the highest bidder via ebay. Artists Sara Zaltash and Adam Young have over 20 lots for sale on Ebay. Get your hands now, on your very own unique piece of ephemerality!

Parallel to the auction, artist Beth Dillon, will welcome audience members with a handshake which will be filmed from a fixed camera and later compiled into a video montage of greetings called WORKING THE ROOM.
