We concluded on Saturday May 31st, the 4th edition of the Month of Performance Art–Berlin. There are no words that can describe what an inspiring and life-enhancing experience the past 31 days have been. MPA-B 2014 was so much more than what we had envisaged and hoped for, and for this we want to express our deepest gratitude and admiration to all the artists, organisers, producers, bloggers, photographers, hosts, friends, families, followers and audiences for making it all possible.
Thanks for sharing with us your work, words and visions; for the engagement, friendship and love and for the dedication, commitment and support you have given us. We are humbled and grateful for having had the opportunity of sharing this very special month with you.
See you all in 2015!

THIS IS IT MPA-B PEEPS!!
We have reached the ***FINAL*** night at the MPA-HUB. For the first time in its 4-year history MPA-B inhabited a space dedicated to the month of performance art and tonight we say goodbye and mark the occasion with the EXAUGURATION of the space. This follows from the INAUGURATION we had at the start of the month. It will be a Valedictory Act: the displayed and anticipated objects from the inauguration will be back together with the catalogue which documented their states before their were used in performances.
BUT THATS NOT ALL, whoever missed the auction at the Inauguration has now the great chance to get hold of another “performed upon” object, body of work, relic, leftover, documentation or remainder from the countless ephemeral and unique performative interventions. MPA-B gives you the chance to start your own performative collection or just take a memorabilia home with you!!!
Under the title PLEASE INSERT £1 COIN – SOME NEWS FROM THE EMPIRE, students and teachers from the Performance Art programme at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, will bring a number of actions, interventions, objects, talks to Spinner and Weber
