Selbstorganisation im Château
Erfahrungsbericht aus dem Innenleben des PerformingArtsForum (PAF)

Als ich von Jan Ritsema und Bojana Cvejic Ende 2005 zum Gründungstreffen des PerformingArtsForum (PAF) nach St Erme eingeladen wurde mischte sich in die Freude auch Sorge. In den Monaten davor hatte ich eigentlich beschlossen, meine Aktivitäten in solchen Gruppenprojekten eher zu reduzieren, als etwas Neues zu beginnen.

contre toute métaphore. plus je lis le recueil d'écrits et d'interviews et plus la définition canonique de la métaphore devient floue pour moi... en fait comment battre en breche la métaphore avec des signes? l'action n'est elle pas le seule moyen. une action peut elle être métaphorique?

The Mattress

In pop culture lore, mattresses are infamously used as savings accounts — repositories of cash squirreled away, stuffed out of sight. Performing Art Forums’s mattresses represent the bedrock (pun intended) of what PAF provides: a bare minimum of comfort and care in a space receptive to its inhabitants.


It’s back… but differently. Really. Summer University has been many different things over the years. It’s been a long time. Now we’re going to do it differently again.

We will do it for three weeks with no assigned themes, but one programme to hold all disciplines, formats and wishes together. There will be a number of things running each day and at any one time and Sundays will be off.

PAF Morocco @ Les Figuiettes

PAF is happy to announce PAF Morocco @ Les Figuiettes.

Les Figuiettes is a large house built and designed patiently over the years by its owners, Cecile and Nordine, who now want to make it available to artists as PAF. We will run a pilot period in 2014/2015 to evaluate whether PAF Morocco will become a permanent annex to PAF or whether this is a temporary project.
