PORT PERFORMANCE is a Forum for Performance Art, founded 2006 by the artists and art teachers Angelika Fojtuch & BBB Johannes Deimling. We offer intensive Performance Art workshops for students, young artists and interested people at the border of water and land to develop individual artistic work or taking first steps in performative art, get knowledge from experienced performance artists and exchange and discuss ideas with other international people.

The Port as a place of constant exchange, a daily inport and export of values, a place where water and land come together, is the basic idea of the project. In Art Performances the human body is a port for exchanges of inside and personal values with the outside world. Communication takes place. PORT PERFORMANCE conects Performance Art with education, traveling, meeting and exchange to a special form of teaching Art in context. The aim of the workshop is to work out an Art-Performance and its final public presentation. The polish word “CUMA” means hawser and is a metaphor for our final presentation, where we fix the results of the workshop in a public event. During the workshop time we will realize specifical excercises that will help to transform own ideas into a performative work. The center of the workshop focuses the perception of the own personality and the communication with the body. Own perception and selfexperiences characterize the feeling in dealing with body, time and space in performance-art as well as in ordinary communication. To understand his body as a tool and to use this tool in his own communications is the main value of this workshop. Besides this we offer cultural specials, like visiting special art or cultural places, meeting with artists and gallery owners and background informations about the relative art scene. As part of our teaching concept this specials offer the participants direct contacts to artists, galleries and cultural insititutions, that they can use after the workshop for their own needs.

Our first two workshops we have successfully realized in Gdansk in Poland, Tallinn and Parnu in Estonia.

The next workshops.

Berlin, Germany
The third workshop will take place from the 18th to the 28th of July in Berlin. Invited by the association for artistical reasearch Berlin to the “Mistake” project Port Performance offers an interesting workshop in the german capital. The workshop place is in the former cargo harbour of Berlin and the former border of east and west Berlin. The mistake or the failure or the misunderstanding will be the research field during the workshop. Learning and individual developement based on mistakes and failures is not to understand in a negative way, but more as an understanding of searching and finding. It is not about, that one fails, but more how. In an creative process, that has the aim to put a mental idea in to practise, there are all the time points where we fail. This potential we will discover and use for to develop and realise art performances.
27th of July 2007, 7 pm, CUMA #3, the final presentation, Kunstfabrik am Flutgraben, Berlin www.kunstfarik.org
Price for this workshop 250 euro (incl. accodomation, without victuals and travel costs)

Gdańsk & Gdynia, Poland
The fourth workshop we offer from the 12th to the 22nd of August in Poland in cooperation with Laznia – Center for Contemporary Arts, Gdansk. The two cities at the baltic sea connects an interesting duality. Gdańsk with its traditional and historical meanings on the one side and on the other side Gdynia as a young and dynamic community. Two towns, two faces. But both base their existence on the relation to the sea with ports, ships, shipyards and fishings. An interesting field for our performative researches between contrast and balance.
21st of August, 7 pm, CUMA #4, the final presentation, Laznia Center for Contemporary Arts, Gdańsk www.laznia.pl
Price for this workshop 250 euro (incl. accodomation, without victuals and travel costs)

Tel Aviv, Israel
Our fifth wotkshop we will realize in the port city Tel Aviv from the 4th to the 18th of November. In collaboration with PAP – Performance Art Platform we will have a straight connection to the Performance art scene in Tel Aviv. Adva Drori artist from Israel told us in a mail: “You know, there are so many things to see here and cultural events. Sometimes I wonder how is it possible to have so much art and events in a reality of war. Any way it is a bless to have it.” The political situation in Israel and the private life that exists besides each other will be the research field in this workshop.
17th of November, 7 pm, CUMA #5, the final presentation, Performance Art Platform, Tel Aviv www.miklat209.org
Price for this workshop 550 euro (incl. accodomation, without victuals and travel costs)

“Angelika Fojtuch and BBB Johannes Deimling – are an unusually and interesting example for a couple creating art together. Apart from their own works (individual and collaborative) they lead workshops which put another engaging formula of performance art into practice – community of individualisms, the sum of talents by each person, that bears fruits of individual realization, that all together creates a successive work. Workshops are works of art in their activities.” Lukasz Guzek, www.spam.art.pl

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

Interview: Lidea Hajjar

Interviews | September 19, 2020

Mother of four young men, Lidea M. Hajjar, from the Land of Cedars, a tiny spot on the world map, yet Lebanon is mentioned more than 70 times in the Holy Book. Faith and experiences shaped her multidimensional personality, translated in her ambitions, generosity, thoughtfulness, and passion. Pleasantly calm, she fights for what she desires with the belief that great things don’t come easily. Full- time learner, motivated by her love for everything around her, because she says we are part of the universe and we have plenty of resources. She got her degree in Interior Architecture with honours from the Lebanese American University along with her two elder boys, and another degree in psychology from Lebanese University. She speaks 5 languages and the sixth being a universal one, Art, became her greatest language. She designs her projects, plays guitar, dances, and paints with her body, mind, and soul. And in her Ted talk about Architecture and Tango, Lidea stated that everything is correlated, and every work should be done passionately. For years, her little free time occupation was painting, using different techniques and mediums. But fell lately for the acrylic abstracts, where she finds her hand wandering over the canvas, evoking lots of her emotions, and emanating unlimited expressions, especially in a style of her own she called ‘Limitless Limit’. Her goal is having lovers for her paintings more than clients, she wants her paintings owners to fall for them every day. Self-taught painter, based on the discipline of architecture, the limitations and constraints are her opportunities to design and paint. Eco-friendly artists and engineers are a must for our planet. Rules and norms are her challenge to create. Flexibility is mandatory. Criticism and new approaches are cuddled. She is enrolling in a realism workshop to add skills to her skillset. For Lidea the ''Sky is the Limit''. Through her passion for Life, she enjoys nature, reading, music, dance, yoga, walking her pets, and the most importantly spending time with her beloved ones and eating chocolate. Read more
