Joakim Stampe

Born in 1959, lives and works in Göteborg, Sweden. Being the son of two painters, Joakim Stampe grew up in an artistic environment where art and making art was a natural part of life. Joakim Stampe is basically a storyteller, through the action and the human identification in performance art.

For Samtalekøkkenet, November 2012, Joakim performed an action of painting with his boots – and with fire: “Daddy’s flag in Red, White and Fire”.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
