Montag Modus is a bimonthly series of CHB, which examines the different aspects of performance art, with a special emphasis on the relationship between spectator and performance. The series presents three performances per event. Montag Modus has been running since May 2015 and has successfully presented 27 performances at 9 events with the participation of over 50 international artists.

The October and December events of the Montag Modus performance series will be focused on ENTROPY, the degree of disorder in changing systems. According to this theory, every person, culture, city, country or universe can be perceived as a changing system, the boundaries of which are being continuously stretched by an internal evolutionary force; thus, by moving beyond their own limits, they interact with other systems, their identity gets blurred, multiplied and remains in a constant state of transition. A system cannot rest until it reaches the peak of its disorder.

– 100-300€ per performance, including production costs
– Photo documentation of the performance
– In site accommodation, if necessary
– CHB is responsible for covering communication and organization of performances
– CHB will cover as many technical requirements as possible with prior coordination

Requirements:

– Video or foto documentation
– Maximum length of performance piece: 45 minutes
– Anyone can apply with a new or previously performed piece
