The MOMENTUM-team is proud to announce the third edition of Momentum – Platform for Performance-Art!
Thu 12 Jun
...Sun 15


MOMENTUM - Platform for Performance-Art is an annual international festival focusing on Performance-Art.

Throughout the festival the audience will have the opportunity to discover the world of Performance-Art through a wide variety of performances and discussions with the artists.

Historically Performance-Art, originated in the late fifties, and was an art form specifically created by visual artists in need for other forms of expression. Through the years Performance-Art has evolved into a many faceted, independent art form.

The particularity of MOMENTUM is that the invited artists are mainly visual artists who have chosen Performance-Art as their only or most important medium.
