 Following the first edition “Hybrid Body – Poetic Body” that took place in December 2012 at Palazzo Bembo, the 2nd VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK will take place at Palazzo Mora in Venice from 13th to 20th December 2014 under the focus "Ritual Body - Political Body".

The live art exhibition project dedicated to contemporary performance art will showcase in its second edition works of over 50 international performance artists from around the globe, some of which are presented in cooperation with cultural institutions and foundations. Pioneers of this art discipline will exhibit alongside established and emerging artists, reflecting influences and current tendencies in the field.

The project consists of a vibrant program of live performances, installations, photographic and video documentation, conferences, daily round tables talks, a Study Room, a Movie Room and meetings with the participating artists, researchers and curators.

For the second edition with the focus “Ritual Body - Political Body” the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2014 aims to investigate a wide range of concepts such as: art as a space for civil negotiation where human ethical values are the core; interconnectivity; political confrontation; utopia; ecological issues; social and individual conflicts and responsibilities, and how the self relates to them, at the same time concentrating on the fact that the presence of the human beings in this world is always more than a temporary condition.

The communication that can be triggered between artists and the audience is an essential element. The topics addressed during the week will relate to the need to look at social relations and the lives of individuals with greater care. 

Due to the specificity of the theme of this second edition “Ritual Body - Political Body”, the live performances and works on display will also seek to provide reflection and further considerations on how to find meaningful mechanisms to foster positive change through contemporary art and culture in a clearly vital way.

The VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK wishes to enrich the highly renowned art scene in Venice with the audacious art form of performance art.

Curated by VestAndPage and organized in collaboration with Studio Contemporaneo, Venice Open Gates, Weexhibit and Global Art Affairs Foundation, which hosts the event in its prestigious premises at Palazzo Mora on Strada Nova.

Out of Love with Love



November 21st - December 6th
h. 3 - 8pm
Kleiner Salon, Berlin, DE


Complement of Gender, 2012


Under the mentorship of gender specialist Lorena Juan Gutiérrez, Angela Kaisers and 
Laura G. Jones explore the personal observations, repetitions, and variables that describe the dynamics of 
measuring romantic love by comparison with either external standards or individual experiences. 
In a non prescriptive way, the artists address an unstable metric system created by 
a set of elements through which they analyze their emotions and relationships. 
The questions risen by this process result in a deconstruction of romantic ideals imposed by capitalist society.





As we use to be is shown with Coven Berlin.

MOVEment: Leading Sustainable Change





9-11 October 2014, Rīga, Latvia

Europe is a continent of diverse and at times even conflicting realities for LGBTI community. 
While in some countries the long-lasting struggle of human rights activists has succeeded in widely expanding the range of legal recognition and social acceptance of LGBTI people, we are witnessing a decrease of political will in pushing forward anti-discrimination policies or even violent breaches of fundamental freedoms and 
rights on LGBTI people in others. Furthermore, the current wave of crisis rapidly moving through economical, 
political, and social landscape of Europe is threatening already gained victories of LGBTI movement. We –the leaders, members, and supporters of European LGBTI movement - are standing at the crossroads of change.

Taking all of this into consideration, the ILGA-Europe board believes that now is the right moment for us to look reflectively to the past and current developments, and of leadership strategies in the field of LGBTI activism, 
to learn from our successes and failures, and most importantly to think together how can we create a sustainable movement working for change that will lead us towards European society with equality for all. 
Let’s gather to MOVE forward together!
