Encyclopedia of Performance Art
With their performance-lecture “The Encyclopaedia of Performance Art” Wagner-Feigl-Forschung sketch out a complete and all encompassing catalogue of the world. Researching the fields of performance art in past, present and future in live-action, with rare and very well known photo-, video-, text- and sound footage Wagner-Feigl-Forschung show how all elements of performance art are connected to each other.

Prologue to 300
Florian performed “Prologue to 300″ at Samtalekøkken. It was the introduction to an now almost endless series of 5 minute performances.  In each one, one action, sequence or process starts, is conducted and concludes within 300 seconds. Five minutes of time one should be able to spare, and 5 minutes should suffice for literally everything. Five minutes cannot be too much to ask. It is a unit that immediately makes sense to almost everyone – at the same time, it is enough to enable differences in how it is experienced. For some, over when it has just begun, for others, endless.

Rambo Revisionist
Together with Jörn Burmester Wium he performed “Rambo Revisionist”. Ten years after their notorious Rambo series about 9/11 and war in Afghanistan, they revisit the format to see where it still hurts.

Together with Jörn Burmester Wium and Mark Boombastik, he returned to Copenhagen, when Hitparaden 2 hit Pumpehuset in September 2014. With TEOTWAWKI they presented a dark performance about the prepper movement, once again setting out to explore human behaviour under extreme circumstances with the means of performance art on a theatrical stage. The audience was hearded into a fenced of encampment, a large black wheel of fortune determined which catastrophes – from climate change to zombie apocalypse – would befall us on the day of the performance, and long walks were undertaken in search of food and equipment, intensified by dark electronic sounds produced by Mark Boombastik.

At Hitparaden 2 Florian and Jörn also presented “Performer Stammtisch”, a format for the documentation and critique that they ran in Berlin between 2003 and 2013. It inspired our Samtalekøkken.


Jeg skal baare lige…
At Live Art for Børn S/H he hosted the performance workshop “JEG SKAL BAARE LIGE …” assisted by Karin Bergman, based on his exploration of the 5 minute timespan in his series 300.
