Curated by Andrés Galeano
After two years exhibiting the performance art programme Extension Series at Grimmuseum, EXTENSION extra aims to extend its format for this special occasion of Month of Performance Art Berlin, featuring twelve performances by artists coming from eight different countries, four lectures and a three week exhibition of the performance project Kanon 1-12 by Henrik Vestergaard Friis.
Extension Series has regularly invited young and established artists for short residencies to develop new work, introduce them to new audiences and showcase experimental documentation. Each series has been accompanied by lectures about different topics on performance art practices today to create discussion, exchange and research on unconventional methods for documenting and approaching actions, experiences and situations that have already vanished.
EXTENSION extra is taking place at Grimmuseum and at the Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz and embraces practical and theoretical discourse on Performance Art by showcasing a wide range of performance art approaches and a number of unusual ways of working with the basic elements of Performance: space, time and presence.
