With Matt Keegan, DAAD-based artist Dane Mitchell is presenting a collaborative work in THE PERFORMANCES on Saturday 25 July 2009. THE PEFORMANCES is a series of events that are taking place at a storefront in the neighbourhood of Tiergartern throughout July 09. THE OFFICE has invited artists who are currently living in Berlin or passing through the city to present new or already existing projects sharing a focus on sound/music and language. Every evening has a different format; the site is used differently on each occasion. It becomes a stage, a venue for a lecture, a music hall or playground.
Based in Berlin, THE OFFICE temporarily occupies empty spaces throughout the city. The goal is to rediscover Berlin, to channel and transmit information, and provide space for discursive thinking around the arts. THE OFFICE is a collaboration between Katharina Fichtner, Maribel Lopez and Kathrin Meyer. Founded in May 2009, it explores different models of cooperation between curators, writers and artists outside of the institutional context. You can go to THE OFFICE website here for the schedule of performances.
