PAS | Performance Art Online Class 4.0

February or March 2024

PAS | Online Classes 4.0 are a 2-day learning programs on performance art in practice with other like-minded people. This edition will involve creating a video-based performance work in one class and action scores inspired by Fluxus in the other class. In the past two years we have conducted 29 Online Classes on different topics of Performance Art with amazing artists from different time zones. From Hong Kong to UK and from South America to Ukraine we had people joining the classes willing to widen the perspective of performance work practice, theory and philosophy and collaborate together in different research settings. The individual and collective outcome of the participants has been enriching, motivating and led to new approaches of collaborative performance work. Online-based collaborations, video performances and live performances were made after the classes and created an international network of performance art lovers and makers.

Led by BBB Johannes Deimling and Monika Deimling

A task based online class by PAS | Performance Art Studies, guided by BBB Johannes Deimling

9 + 16 March 2024
Research focus:
performance art practice as a tool for “social acupuncture”, inspired by FLUXUS-scores.
Outcome: Performance art scores, ready to use in your practise and experimentation + publication.

Scores for a nicer life
You might agree that the challenges of our times have piled up and based on social research, people have difficulties coping with these challenges and rapid changes. Performance Art has been and might always be a place where it is possible to formulate our feelings and create solutions for a different view on these issues. The practice of performance might not change the bigger circumstances, but it has the power to empower the all-day life of people.

The course SOCIAL ACUPUNCTURE will create a forum in which we will discuss and create scores for simple actions that can be carried out by everyone. Based on the “FLUXUS scores” we will collectively exchange and research for possible actions that alter the way people are trying to grasp the massive influences that are breaking into our all-day lives.

One of the major questions we will follow in this course is “How to create a strong concept of performance art that has the potential to last for a long time in the mind of the viewers?”.

In this online course we will create performance art works that are based on a task. In the first meeting we will provide an inspirational lecture with examples that will introduce the idea of performance art practice as a tool for “social acupuncture”. We will discuss the different ways we are able to write scores for actions that are accessible and inviting for others to see or join. In the end of the first meeting, we will explain an open task that enables you to create performance scores and execute them. Depending on the work it can be documented in various ways, such as video, photograph or text. The two meetings will be divided by a timespan of one week in which you are able to create your performance art work. In the second meeting we will present these works to each other and discuss them based on the made experiences and research. The program will be summarized in a publication with all the scores created during the course for further use.

The created scores will be presented to the public via our website and Instagram page, as well as during different art throughout the year.

The program is strong, intense and life-changing.”

“You managed somehow to ACTIVATE my creative spirit and provided the opportunity to expose it to others and to hear from them and to look into other’s mind and to WATCH ACTIVELY and to LISTEN RESPONSIVELY which are amazing skills that I forgot I have and I forgot to pleasure them.

By Emrah G., participant of the PAS | Online Class:
“With this workshop, I had a big chance to see lots of other perspectives, methodologies, understanding of dealing with a space- body- objects! And it helped me a lot to understand what is my current state!”

“It is amazing, how many different and brilliant ideas you have got, to make each workshop unique and sustainable. The combination between well-prepared exercises and free spaces for experiments is very well planned. Also the combination of single tasks and group tasks. Enjoyed every minute!”
