Bulegoa z/b in Bilbao, Contemporary Art Centre Vilnius, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution in Amsterdam, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Playground (STUK Kunstencentrum and M-Museum) in Leuven, and Tate Modern in London join together in Corpus, a collaborative network for performance in a visual arts context. Diverse in scale, character and history, these institutions all share a longstanding interest in, and engagement with performance. By exchanging our different experiences, ideas, and (re)sources through shared commissioning, production and presentation of performance-related work, Corpus aims to invest in specific practices of performance, and embraces performance's many connotations and varied intellectual kinships.
Six associated partners – Ashkal Alwan (Beirut), The Kitchen (New York), KUB Arena of the Kunsthaus Bregenz (Bregenz), OCAT (Shenzhen), Gallery at REDCAT (Los Angeles) and the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York) – extend both the reach and the conversation.
Corpus was founded in 2012 by If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution with Playground (STUK Kunstencentrum and M-Museum) and Tate Modern, and Centre d’Art Contemporain in Brétigny as an additional founding partner.
Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
