A Legendary Milestone in the History of Performance Art:

Cooperation between PAS and IPA

June 25th – July 8th 2017, Quartair The Hague, The Netherlands

In cooperation with P.S. Performance Site The Hague


IPA and PAS week-long workshop conducted by Jürgen Fritz and BBB Johannes Deimling.

We are delighted to invite you to IPA – PAS. An intensive week of masterclasses taught by two of the most experienced instructors of today. IPA – PAS in the Netherlands is made for (preferably) experienced artists who are searching for development in their artistic practice and those who are ready to go deeper in their personal investigations in performance art.


During the full-time (7 hours) working days the selected participants explore performance art theory, put their knowledge directly into practice and reflect on the process and outcomes. They also expand their network by making valuable connections with other performers from all over the world. After four days the groups will switch teachers so that everyone has a chance to experience the diversity of approaches to performance. You can read more about the approaches of their workshops here:

Dear artists

We are very sorry for our long silence.
We have to inform you, that IPA The Hague 2016 is cancelled.

The reason is, that we couldn´t get enough funding. And as The Hague is an expensive city and we didn´t want to rise the participants fee, there was no other possibility then to cancel to whole event. Everything was already organized – the workshop places, the cooperation with the University, the Platform, the accommodation – we are very unhappy.

We hope, that we can work with you at another time – we are planning to have IPA in The Hague in 2017 – we already started to apply for funds. Also we are planning to have an IPA in Mexico, Australia, India and Canada. Stay in touch!

We deeply apologize for any inconvenience.


Jolanda, Lisetteh, Fay and Jürgen

Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice
The Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice (MA CAP) is a multidisciplinary program for artists from the visual arts, the performance art, music and media art and literature. The focus is on the student’s approach and choice of emphases. We support individual as well as collaborative projects and encourage exchanges among students and teaching staff across different fields of art.

The comprehensive studies program aims at fostering an independent artistic outlook within a framework of collective working interrelationships. It sharpens individual artistic practices through direct engagement with other artistic strategies. A knowledge of current discourses in other art forms causes the own view to change.

We offer four options for specialisation:
— Fine Arts
— Music and Media Art
— Literary Writing
— Performance Art
