Curated by Burkhard Meltzer

The young art fair in Basel has not only been an international platform for young galleries since the 1990s, it also initiated a special programme of performances in 2005. If you think of body-related stage performances, interventions in everyday-life-situations or lecture performances in the work of many artists in the past years, you could speak of a renaissance of performative formats in contemporary artistic practice. Unlike other exhibition spaces, an art fair is primarily an event – a platform for conversations and activities. You could speak of the fair itself in terms of an ongoing performative format that continues for a week. Within that framework, the artists of the 8th edition of the Performance Project, deal primarily with modifications of symbolic and economic exchange by negotiating the aesthetics of transfer.
