IPA Summer 2007

Berlin, Germany

Der IPA Summer wurde im Jahr 2006, noch unter dem Namen IPAH Sommercamp, zum ersten Mal durchgeführt. Zuerst war er lediglich als Weiterbildung für die Künstler der Internationalen Performance Assoziation Hildesheim (IPA e.V.) gedacht, doch bereits im Jahr 2007 nahmen junge Künstler aus elf verschiedenen Ländern daran teil. Ab dem Jahr 2008 kooperierte der IPAH e.V. zuerst mit dem Performerstammtisch Berlin und dann mit dem Flutgraben e.V. Berlin. In diesem Jahr wurden zum ersten Mal nach dem Workshop öffentliche Aufführungen gezeigt, die seit dem Jahr 2009 als "Platform For Young Performance Artists" weitergeführt werden. Die Organisation und inhaltliche Gestaltung der Plattform lag bei Janine Eisenächer vom Flutgraben e.V.. Zum IPA Sommer 2010 wurde die Konferenz über die Lehre von Performanceart ins Leben gerufen.
Somit besteht der IPA Summer aus drei Teilen: den Workshops, der Plattform und der Konferenz. Im Jahr 2012 wurde der IPA Sommer zum ersten Mal in Istanbul durchgeführt.
Bis zum Jahr 2ß12 haben 258 Künstler aus 34 Nationen am IPA Summer teilgenommen.
Hier können Sie einen Überblick der Veranstaltungen seit 2006 herunterladen.

Zu den IPA Workshops: Die meisten Teilnehmer der Workshops sind junge Künstler, die sich professionell mit der Praxis von Performanceart befassen. Die Workshops sind altersoffen, das durchschnittliche Alter liegt zwischen 20 und 35 Jahren. Es werden ca. 45 TeilnehmerInnen eingeladen, die in drei Gruppen unterrichtet werden. Die Lehrer sind bekannte internationale Performancekünstler. Bei der Auswahl der Lehrer ist es für uns wichtig, dass diese eine eigenständige künstlerische Position erarbeitet haben. Die didaktische Qualifikation ist für uns eher zweitrangig, d.h. wir laden normalerweise keine Hochschullehrer ein, es sei denn, sie sind in dem oben genannten Sinne künstlerisch aktiv und bekannt.

Die Workshops werden bisher ausschließlich aus den Teilnahmegebühren der Teilnehmer finanziert, wir erhalten dafür keinerlei öffentliche Zuschüsse. Trotzdem versuchen wir, die Teilnahmegebühren zu gering wie möglich zu halten. Es besteht keinerlei Gewinnerzielungsabsicht. Es ist uns wichtig, die Teilnahme auch jenen Künstlern zu ermöglichen, die über nur geringe finanzielle Möglichkeit verfügen.

2006
First Summercamp at Fusion Ground in Eastern Germany. 18 participants from Germany. Teacher: Boris Nieslony (Germany) and Jürgen Fritz (Germany).

Zur Platform For Young Performance Artists: Die Platform dient in erster Linie der Vernetzung und dem Austausch zwischen Künstlern des IPA Sommers und Künstlern aus der Region. Sie findet in der Woche nach den IPA Workshops statt. Durch diese Verknüpfung erhält die Platform eine hohe, manchmal etwas chaotisch-anarchistsiche Dynamik, die sie inspirierend von der geordneten Nummernschau anderer Festivals unterscheidet. An zwei Tagen sind hier ca. 40 Performances zu sehen.


Die Konferenz über die Lehre von Performance Art dient zum Austausch über die Methodik der workshops. Die eingeladenen WorkshopleiterInnen stellen ihre Vorgehensweise vor, darüber hinaus referieren weitere Gastdozenten zu dem Thema. Das Ziel ist, mittelfristig einen Pool von Ansätzen und Methoden bereitzustellen, der als Inspiration für weitere Workshops dienen kann.

Vest&Page, Italy/Germany

2013, Istanbul, Türkei
close
info:

Verena Stenke and Andrea Pagnes have been working together since 2006 as VestAndPage in Performance art, filmmaking, visual art, writing and as independent curators. Their works, recordings and live performances have been shown across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Their art originates from a here-and-now interpretation of the fragility of the individual and its surroundings, researching private, social and environmental spheres through precariousness, transformation, liminality, loss of control and authenticity. The socially or environmentally orientated live performances are primarily site-responsive and process-led, conceived psycho-geographically for architectures or in response to natural surroundings and historical sites. VestAndPage collaborate with international theater companies, humanitarian and social organizations in production and education, i.e. for the street-children workshop project Fear is Fear. Love is Love. in Mexico City. They present methodological practical workshop series, which work on memory activation and stimulation of the personal, inner library for creative use. Their theoretical investigations have been published in various books and magazines of contemporary art, and in the book The Fall of Faust - Considerations on Contemporary Art and Art Action by Andrea Pagnes. They have been active as independent curators and organizers, such as of the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK and the on-going global art initiative FRAGILE global performance chain journey. Between 2010-2012, VestAndPage produced the experimental art film trilogy sin∞fin The Movie in Antarctica, India, Kashmir, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, combining the ephemeral art form of Performance with filmmaking.

Klara Schilliger und Valerian Maly, Switzerland

info:
KLARA SCHILLIGER UND VALERIAN MALY Klara Schilliger (*1953 ) und Valerian Maly ( * 1959 ) arbeiten seit 1984 gemeinsam in den Bereichen Performance Art und Installation. Für einige spezifische Werke ( meist mit direktem Einbezug des Publikums ) verwenden sie neuerdings den Begriff der „ Install Action “. Die intermediären Installationen und Performances sind oft – nicht ausschliesslich – ortsbezogene Interventionen, denen projektbezogene Recherchen vorausgehen. Klara Schilliger und Valerian Maly bewegen sich selbstverständlich zwischen den verschiedenen Genres der Künste, ohne aber vermeintlich verlockender multimedialer Überfrachtung zu verfallen: „ Es gilt einen Standort zu finden inmitten der Turbulenzen der Werte, aus denen Kunst entspringt. “ ( Harold Rosenberg, The Tradition of the New, 1960)
