Performance Voyage 4 by MUU premiered in Madrid in February and is presented at MUU Gallery in April. Performance Voyage 4 is a series of international video performances. The theme this year is “Self-portrait”. The collection presents performance art on video by 15 artists and groups of artists, selected from pieces submitted through an international open call.

The collection of self-portraying pieces challenges the viewer to reflect upon the self. The pieces bring out themes connected to self-portrayal, such as identity as acts and processes, autobiographicality and entitlement to one’s own story, the artist in a societal context as well as the self in relation to the other and otherness. The Performance Voyage 4 selection proves that nudity, tape, scissors, mirrors, clothing and food items still are basic elements in performance art.

The “Performance Voyage” project started in 2011, in conjunction with the Amorph! Festival. In 2011 Amorph! was organized as part of the official programme of “Turku – European Capital of Culture”. After that Performance Voyage became a part of MUU’s annual project repertoire, and has year by year become an increasingly prominent international project.
