Performance Art in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe


This website is a developing database of artists who have created or are currently creating performances (action art, live art, happenings and socially engaged art) in Eastern Europe.

From 2013-2016 I traveled throughout Eastern Europe, conducting research for my monograph Performance Art in Eastern Europe since 1960 (Manchester University Press, 2017), and this website also serves as a documentation of my travels to the region, to meet and interview artists, curators, art historians and critics.

I am currently in the process of expanding the site, adding more artists, and eventually voice and video files of interviews, and images.
