Tanja Ostojic

Tanja Ostojic performed at Berliner Luft 1 ”MIDDAGSDISKUSSION OM IMMIGRATIONSPOLITIK OG INTEGRATION” Tanja Ostojić (born 19 August 1972 in Titovo Užice, Yugoslavia) is a feminist performance artist. Her work draws inspiration from her own experience as a non-European Union citizen, a traveler and female artist. Ostojić has lived in Serbia, Slovenia, France, and Germany, but refuses to claim any particular nationality. Ostojić’s grand theme is the “arrogance of the EU” with regards to the integration of south-eastern Europe into the union. For south-east Europeans, and particularly women, becoming resident in the EU is often only possible through marriage, which Ostojić depicts as a form of prostitution. From 2000 to 2003, she publicly addressed […]

Showcase Beat Le Mot (DE)

Showcase Beat Le Mot Showcase Beat Le Mot performed “Vote Zombie Andy Beuyz” 18. and 19. APRIL 2009 Berliner Luft 4 The performance group Showcase Beat Le Mot formed from a hundred years of theater and art history a voodoo doll to which it pierces with turntable needles, high heels and pointed fingernails. Zombies stagger in jeans and check shirts by nocturnal shopping malls and shady cities. The undead are masses of battered rebels who dip their own cultural and economic roots in black madness. Vote Zombie Andy Beuyz is a new map of art, an area with depths, a road with potholes, a course with barricades of pictures and turnpikes from […]

She She Pop (DE)

She She Pop She She Pop “WARUM TANZT IHR NICHT?” 7. – 8. APRIL 2005 Berliner Luft 2 Kanonhallen The ballroom is a promise, a place of great anticipations and secret desires and – as desires so often do not suffice – a place of hidden plans, old and new strategies and their spectacular staging. She She Pop turns the theatre space into a dance floor and shows the ballroom with all its myths as a pitfall of pathetically exaggerated expectations. On the dance floor fantasy and reality diverge dramatically: Every dancer – prom queen, wallflower, gentleman or gate crasher – is caught in a role which has been carefully, artistically […]

Plan B (UK)

Plan B Work for Live Art Denmark 2009: “A Bicycle Made for You” at Berliner Luft 4 A Bicycle Made for You A special Copenhagen version of their tandem riding performance was created by the Berlin based performance duo Plan B. Each spectator was greeted by one of the performers and led to a tandem that is held stationary in a bike stand. The other performer is already on the front seat of the tandem, ready to go. Hanging on their back is a small screen, site of the film performance. For the Copenhagen version created for “Berliner Luft 4”, Plan B asked the city’s cycle couriers for all the […]

IN 2004 they performed their “Encyclopedia of Performance Art” for the first time in Denmark at our first Berliner Luft festival.

On Air (US/DE)

On Air Work for Live Art Denmark 2007: “Hotel Radio” at Berliner Luft 3. Hotel Radio In a certain hotel plans were made to broadcast, from a tower on the roof of the hotel. Radio broadcasts. The name of this hotel was the Hotel Radio. Richard Foremann Hotel Radio is presented as quasi “talk radio”. Sequences vary from quiz shows to phone-ins, on topics ranging from garbage to duck hunting. Fast switching between segments, technical confusion, interruptions, and silence create extreme changes in the atmosphere of the piece. Hotel Radio observes a single person in a game with different communication and information systems, and documents the loneliness which lies beneath. […]

Noah Holtwiesche (DE)

Noah Holtwiesche Works for Live Art Denmark2007: “Signifying Nothing” at Berliner Luft 32014: “Aibi/Alias” at Samtalekøkken, Inkonst Malmö Signifying NothingStanding close to his audience in a small basement room, after a lengthy introduction in which he explains the title (referring to the number zero), Noah informs the audience about his aim to establish an energy flow between themselves and a piece of steel, and what to do to end the performance. Noah then ceremoniously takes of his suitcoat, hangs it up, and leaves through the door behind him. Through the door he left open we see him in the next room, where he repeatedly lifts a piece of steel beam […]
