Preview: Artists & Agents: Performance Art and Secret Services

Dortmunder U | Ebene 3 | 10/26/2019 - 02/23/2020

Exhibition opening: Friday, 25 October 2019

From 26 October 2019 - on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - the elaborately researched international group exhibition Artists & Agents: Performance Art and Secret Services will be on view at the HMKV. The focus is on the files that various secret services in Eastern Europe - and beyond - have created on performance artists from the 1960s to the 1990s - in order to be able to "infiltrate" them all the better and "liquidate" them from within. For this, however, they had to become performance artists themselves.

The exhibition, which was created in cooperation with the Slavic Seminar of the University of Zürich, is curated by Inke Arns, Kata Krasznahorkai and Sylvia Sasse.

Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.

HMKV is funded by Kulturbetriebe Stadt Dortmund / Dortmunder U
