After a short but successful presentation of the archive at the Tallinna Kunstihoone in Tallinn, Estonia, we are happy to announce the next opening of the “re.act.feminism #2″ – a performing archive at the Fundacio Antoni Tapies in Barcelona, Spain! The continuously growing archive has recently been enlarged by another 13 artists and contains currently more than 233 performance documents, mostly DVD and photography by 163 artists and artist collectives.
Opening: Thursday, 15 November 2012 at 7:30pm
Several artists and the curators Bettina Knaup and Beatrice Ellen Stammer will be present!
During its stay at the Fundacion Antoni Tapies the archive will be accompanied by a series of lectures & talks initiated in collaboration with Centre de Cultura de Dones Francesca Bonnemaison, the Goethe-Institut Barcelona, the Mercat de les Flors. An Activity Space for educational and research activities in the form of workshops, screenings and presentations will allow the audience to further engage in current questions on performance art and feminism.
The mobile archive will be showcased at the Fundacio Antoni Tapies from November 16th 2012 until February 17th 2013 before returning to Berlin in June 2013 to be presented at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin.
