Performance Platform Lublin 2014

Open call for artists to participate in Performance Platform Lublin 2014 festival

Performance Art Foundation and the Galeria Labirynt invite artists to participate in a competition accompanying the 6th edition of the international Performance Platform Lublin festival. The festival has been organised in Lublin since 2009 and is dedicated to the art of performance. The main objective of the festival is to present the diversity of paths, strategies and artistic attitudes as well as new phenomena taking place within this field of art. Special attention is paid to the work of young artists standing at the beginning of their artistic path, interested in exploring the domain of performance art.

Performance Platform Lublin 2013 will be held on 16 – 18 October 2014 in the Galeria Labirynt in Lublin. The programme of the festival consists of two parts: live performances and the video part during which selected film documentation of performances and video performances will be presented. Therefore, the competition involves two separate admission processes: to the “live” programme and to the “video” programme. The candidates can participate in one or both of them.
