The first VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, under the title “Hybrid Body-Poetic Body”, took place at Palazzo Bembo, Venice, from December 8th to December 15th, 2012, showcasing works by 31 international artists. Pioneers alongside established and emerging ones traced an itinerary of still vivid past influences and current tendencies in the field.
Consisting of a dynamic program of live performances, installations, photographic and video documentation, daily artist talks, and meetings with the participating artists, researchers and curators, the event focused on concepts such as authenticity, interconnectivity, empathy, struggle, love, political and social habits, and how the Self relates to them.
