Voluspa Jarpa @HMKV, Dortmund

The exhibition focuses on the interaction between secret services and performance art – an art form that was considered particularly dangerous. Archives are accessible almost exclusively in Eastern Europe and reveal the « disruption » and « liquidation » of critical artists by state security services. For this, however, some of the agents had to become ‘performance artists’ themselves. Artists & Agents presents examples of artistic subversion and secret service infiltration, some of which have never been shown before. Recent works show: The question of the increasing use of secret service methods in today’s politics and everyday life is highly topical.
