Teresa Riemann - Deutschland

Teresa Riemann  - Deutschland

Teresa Riemann was born in 1988 in Dachau, Germany.
Sprung from the dark caves of the collective german subconsciousness, forging an outlet via the Berlin Noise scene, Berlin based musician, writer and performance-artist Teresa Riemann explores, through her creative output, the darkness and even more-so the light, which can be found in the spaces we like to keep locked up far away from where anybody can see them. 
Playing drums, guitar and piano, Teresa Riemann is also a skilled vocalist. Her provocative and sometimes brutally unflinching exploration of all sides of life might make you sick, but in the process you will be coughing up the poison; you will feel better afterwards. 
Being attracted by every attempt to break existing laws about "how to do this right"  this curious mind always seeks the full, uncensored expression, seeks to be free in every second and challenges the consciousness of the audience instead of reproducing patterns that have been acknowledged and lost a lot of their primary energy. Time can never be poured into concrete, nor life. 
She perceives her performances as explicitly political. In her eyes, unpolitical art is just the numb affirmation of the existing and in no cogitable way neutrality. Therefore, every examination on the stage is necessarily a political one.
Since 2011 she has been organizing and staging numerous concerts, readings and performances in off-spaces from Poland to Tunisia.

Every dogma is a coma.

Untersuchungen zu Kernfragen des Lebens und des menschlichen Seins sind Ausgangspunkte für die künstlerische Transformation dieser Auseinandersetzung.
Es ist eine andauernde Beschäftigung mit Fragen zu Identität, konventionellem und freiheitlichem Denken und Handel der Mitglieder einer Gesellschaft. In den Performances werden häufig physische oder körperliche Grenzen ausgelotet, indem der Körper als Werkzeug und Objekt dienen kann. 
Die Erscheinung der Performances können sehr unterschiedlich sein. Die Umsetzung der Idee ist ausschlaggebend. Hierbei wird immer der spezifische Raum und die gegebene Situation mit gedacht. Auch die aktive Einbeziehung des Puplikums in die Performance kann ein unvorhersehbares, nicht kalkulierbares Gestaltungselement sein.

Jorge Hidalgo - Kolumbien

Jorge Hidalgo - Kolumbien
Seine Performances sind politisch provokative Protest Arbeiten. Die direkte Gegenüberstellung des Publikums mit ihren sozialen Symbolen und Vorstellungen sind Teil seiner Arbeit. Er konfrontiert die Zuschauer mit der Sichtweise derer, die, keine Stimme haben die am Rande der Gesellschaft stehen. Die Themen variieren von politisch kritischen Aussagen über soziale Themen die während der Performance mit religiösen und kulturellen Klischees verwoben werden, die transparent gemacht  oder ins absurde gezogen werden. Dabei verliert er nie den Hintergrund seiner indigenen Herkunft aus den Augen der sich wie ein roter Faden ist der sich durch seine Arbeiten zieht.
Performancekongresse und Festivals u.a. in Ecuador, Kolumbien, Deutschland, den Niederlanden, der Schweiz, Korea, Finnland, Estland, und Kanada u.a. 2004  internationaler Performancekongress in Seoul (Südkorea); Gwangju Biennale  Südkorea; 2006 internationalen Performancekongress „Viva Art“ in Montreal (Kanada); 2012 Dokumenta '13 in Kassel; 2014 Residence Projekts „The beat modulation beetween art and myth“ bei „space noon“, Suwon, Korea.

Non Grata- Estonia

Non Grata 
Around the name NON GRATA, there have been different hushes and shushes for a long time. Already from the point of view of the death of conventionalization of art it has embodied the horrible and unwanted disembodiment of the human person, from which the meaninglessness of nowadays art, is pouring out. For those, whose world of arts starts from the point, where the art world ends, NON GRATA has been a liberator, the orphic gap in the seemingly unalterable course, which however betrays us, it is a cure from incest. The main point of the group is ethical — it is the image of primitivism, impersonality and experimental creativity. The performances of the group take place according to the logic of avoiding codes. The presentations are physical texts, whose ways of orthography and reading are kept within limits of real actions by the group members. Aesthetical and provocative challenges are represented in places where the Art World doesn't work.

Anonymous Boh (Estonia)

Through non-stop world tours, performances, exhibitions, and publications, Anonymous Boh has created one of the most representative, significant, timely and transformative art movements in all of history. As Ring Master, Boh has become the Wild Bill Hickok, the P.T. Barnum, the Alfred Jarry, the Tristan Tzara, the Ezra Pound, the Orson Welles of our Era. We have entered The Apocalypse, The Storm. Boh, implementing all The Arts via NON GRATA’S Diverse Universe global performances, reveals to us not only where we presently stand in The Storm but he also conjures visions of our soon to be realised post-apocalyptic absurdly playfully tormented kaleidoscopic landscapes.

Devil Girl (Estonia)

An Estonian performance, installation and new media artist, Taje was trained at the alternative art institution Academia Non Grata in Estonia, as well as the Fine Arts Academies of Helsinki and Tallinn and Universität der Künste in Berlin. Since 1998, she is one of the main engines of International Non Grata Performance Group. As Devil Girl, this femme fatale has been seen on underground scenes worldwide, wild and anonymous. MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
