PAS - Performance Art Studies

🔵 "Como Somos?” is a title of Hannah Santana's final work presented as a result of PAS # 65 in Berlin.

➖ Simplicity ➖ can be a key in the performance art process. Through research and precise observation of space, form, material, etc. we can create a strong visual appearance which gives a lot of space for the actual content of the work. Also, we can combine different styles of performance in order to form a holistic work. This has happened during PAS #65 in Berlin with the performance of Hannah Santana.

Full of inspiration, we are preparing for the next program in Spain, where you can still catch 1️⃣ more spot that is available. If you are interested in any future programs, leave us a message or send an email ([email protected]).

Marcia Vaitsman, PhD, is a multi-disciplinary artist born in Brazil and currently based in New Jersey, USA. Her work focuses on the practice of games as perceived experiences and how games relate to art.

During her show Marcia Vaitsman - Spielraum​, taking place from June 26 until June 29 at SomoS, the artist will present five sets of art-games playable by the audience within the exhibition space.

Here is a video introducing her work. Though the process of participating in the game, we discover the purpose of the game is not winning, but to cooperate and enjoy the game. What we can learn is not only to imitate others like a mirror, but also the ethics, ideology and behaviour of other human beings.
