LADA is delighted to be working as a partner on re.act.feminism, a continually expanding, temporary and living archive and exhibition project on feminism and performance art based in Berlin. It presents feminist, gendercritical and queer performance art by over 120 artists and artist collectives from the 1960s to the beginning of the 1980s, as well as contemporary positions. The research focus is on Eastern and Western Europe, the Mediterranean and Middle East, the US and several countries in Latin America.
Following presentations across Europe, where it continued to continue to expand through local research and cooperation with art academies and universities, re.act.feminism - a performing archive returned to its home in Berlin in Summer 2013 with workshops, performances, talks, research and an open space.
The eagerly anticipated re.act.feminism catalogue: re.act.feminism #2 - a performing archive edited by Bettina Knaup and Beatrice E. Stammer and co-published by LADA is now available to buy on Unbound
This partnership with re.act.feminism is part of the Live Art Development Agency’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect 3: Live Art and Feminism initiative, mapping and marking the impact of performance on feminist histories and the contribution of artists to discourses around contemporary gender politics.
