Young Urban Performances Collective

The Young Urban Performances collective consists of seven equal members. We got to know each other while studying Art and Art Education at the University of Osnabrück. Since the founding of the collective in spring 2017, our form of collaboration has changed considerably, as we now work from different locations within the German-speaking world.

We are dedicated to the conception and realization of various cultural events. We focus on the exhibition and strengthening of Performance Art in institutional, non-institutional and public spaces. In the past years we have been able to organize an annual festival, in which european as well as artists from different parts of the world have participated. In addition, we have organized a number of other events with a performative and mediating approach.
With our work we support emerging talents in the field of Performance Art. We offer artists a platform for the presentation of their work, an entry into the art market by valuing their work in a monetary way and an opportunity for exchange and networking.
