Colab Editions

Performance art Program

Colab Editions program is dedicated to an exchange between artists that use Performance art as one of their primary working media. The objective is to create conditions for artists to collaborate in a constant negotiation between their own working practices and the possibility of crossing knowledge's between them. The program will provide the possibility for artists to meet in different contexts, in Berlin, attempting to create extraordinary conditions for artists to collaborate.

It is important to find a common denominator in cultural differences and the affinities inside the work methodologies.

Artists working inside Live Performance, Video performance and Installation Performance will be invited to participate in this project. It will be important to mix these artists, attempting to create possibilities of formal and theory engagements within the SAVVY Contemporary concept and space.

The first editions, between March and December 2011, will be dedicated to an exchange between one artist based in Berlin and another from abroad, as well as a discourse between the West and the non-West.

During this annual program several catalogs will be published on the Co-lab editions, which will be an attempt to bring critics, curators or other professionals to create a point of view about the collaboration between the artists and the status quo of Performance art within contemporary art.
