24 hr walk around Berlin

On May 5th at sunset, I will step out of the MPA-B Hub in Prenzlauer Berg and wander non-stop around Berlin until I reach the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Moabit twenty-three hours later (i.e. twenty-two more than it would normally take). My movements will be trackable online at so anybody can join me at any point of the route and for as long as they wish. I will be wearing a camera in order to document the path I take. The footage will be projected when I reach my destination.

This performance is part of the project NETTING THE WORK curated by Eva Giannakopoulou and Rilène Markopoulou for the 5th and closing edition of the Month of Performance Art-Berlin ANTHOLOGY

Collaboration, Erogation, Surrogation @ MPA-B

ARTISTIC RESEARCH: FOUR APPROACHES – IV/IV Collaboration, Erogation, Surrogation

May 28 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm

at Holzmarktstr. 25, 10243 Berlin

The ‘Erogate/Surrogate Performance Series’, which premiered last year during MPA-­B 2013, is an on­going experiment where artists are asked to trust other artists to perform their work on their behalf. The protocol is simple: in the months, weeks or days leading up to the performance, ‘erogates’ share their work with their appointed ‘surrogates’ while both sides keep journals of their processes and detailed records of all their negotiations and exchanges.

Although such a curatorial device allows ‘erogates’ to be as open they want to be to having their piece composed, re­composed and/or de­composed by their ‘surrogates’ – who in turn can decide what and how much to offer and risk for what at the end of the day might still be referred to as “somebody else’s work” – the project has revealed the possibility that ‘erogation’ and ‘surrogation’ are not two separate activities or roles, but rather two different stages of all creative processes. ‘Erogacy’ as a starting point (rather than as ‘the origin’) and ‘surrogacy’ as the act that keeps it performing, thus making it anew. Surrogation becomes erogation becomes surrogation becomes erogation…

Using the E/S example along with other MPA projects that encourage us to think about artistic practice as research, the final discussion of the ‘Artistic Research: Four Approaches’ series will center around collaborative practices. Co-­labouring on making art, including the support structure that sustains it, is accepted as an integral part of performance. But how it makes it is as key as what it makes. There will be a moderated panel, the discussion will invite an ongoing and engaged participation by all those present, to explore the implications – aesthetic, social, political – of collaborative strategies for how we do research by and with art­making.

Curated by Ilya Noé. Moderated by Lynette Hunter.

The discussion will be held in English.

Erogate/Surrogate Performance #4 @ MPA-B

‘TRUST ME’, a piece by Spanish artist Gema Alava, will be the fourth performance of the Erogate/Surrogate Series, an on-going attempt to trouble the notion of an ‘autonomous performer’ and of an ‘original performance’ – and its potential re-performance– by exploring ways in which we are infused by, internalize and collaborate (or not collaborate) with others as well as with our environments. During the two months leading up to May 28th, Gema will share all the details of her work via Skype and e-mail with her surrogate Ilya Noé who will then present it to Berlin audiences. Following what Gema did in New York back in 2010, Ilya will individually guide a total of seven participants wearing dark glasses through two major Berlin museums while performing one-on-one verbal descriptions of particular elements in their surroundings. These participants will be selected out of an semi-open call.

A post-performance discussion on artistic research, collaboration and the ramifications of the ‘erogate/surrogate’ experiment will be hosted at the MPA-B Hub the next day.

WHEN: MAY 27, 2014

WHERE: at two major art museums/institutions in Berlin which shall remain unnamed.

TIME: 12-18 hrs
