The fourth issue of ICE HOLE – Live Art Journal edited by Jörn J. Burmester and I is published on Monday 16th of May 2016!


The issue #4 is produced in cooperation with BONE 18 Performance Art Festival that was held in Bern, Switzerland, 1.-6. December 2015. All the writers of the issue were involved in the program and all the videos were shot in Bern. The festival theme “Schools of… connectivity, relatedness, networks of Performance Art” is under scrutiny. Issue #4 is about teaching and learning Performance Art – is it possible, and if so, how and where? Members of the famous performance art collective Black Market International give their views about it in a video interview. Ex-lecturerer Dani Ploeger, performance art student Jürgen Bogle and Jörn tackle the question in their articles. I’m corresponding on video from the class rooms of Fluid Academy. On the opening video Ann Liv Young and acting students present their result of a three day course on performance art and end up having a row with the audience. Besides the thematical stuff, artists like Klara Schilliger, Florian Feigl and Helge Meyer perform one or two minutes with Madame Bovary in front of the camera. And we are already proud to present Black Market International 30th anniversary documentary from Bern by Evamaria Schaller on September 1st!
