Curated by Birte Kleemann, this exhibition explores the origins of performance art and its actions within the political context of 1960s and 1970s Germany. The exhibition traces performance art to its birth during the multimedia ‘happenings’ at Mary Bauermeister’s studio in 1950s New York City. What makes the show especially interesting is the importance of the gallery’s location (near Checkpoint Charlie, etc.) in triggering social awareness. Includes works from Bauermeister, John Cage, Yoko Ono and Karlheinz Stockhausen, among others.
